Sumire Uesaka's new animated PV is Magical Soviet Russia


What the hell did I just watch

The latest music video from upcoming seiyuu idol Sumire Uesaka is now posted on Youtube. It's pretty notable because it's animated--we don't get a whole lot of animated music videos even this day and age. What's actually remarkable is that this video has gone full blown Russia. Given Uesaka's schtik is Russia--she's a genuine Russophile and even speaks it--that is hardly surprising. But even with that in mind, this video blew up my expectation like a T-34 tank running over a fabergé egg. It's so full-blown, Russian-inspired, that I have a hard time trying to explain it.

The music video portrays Uesaka as some kind of magical comrade, complete with a transformation scene. At one point a giant flying building of Kremlin-ness topped with a huge robotic fist grasping a hammer (with a scythe motif on the base of course) lays out justice and smashes the enemy. And I didn't even get to the Nakano everybody dance now part. Just watch the video. I'll wait.

This song, "Kakumei-teki Broadway Shugisha Doumei" or "Broadway Revolutionary Ideologist Alliance," streets January 8th, as included with Sumire Uesaka's first solo album of the same name. The live version of the song, which you can watch after the jump, features a more normal setup.
