Takuya Hosogane goes anime in this new music video for Jin, but keeps his sly sense of humor. Takuya says that he wanted to create a piece that referenced the experience of browsing through a tumblr of animated GIFs: gloriously random with awesome moments of synchronicity. And, in a true win for the Internet, someone’s already taken the video and reblogged it on tumblr it as an animated GIF.
Special thanks to the incredible Maya Rosewood for help in translating our discussion with Takuya.
