Perfume Teaches Japanese

For this Sunday afternoon, I wanted to share this one. The lovely ladies of Perfume came out with another song recently called “1mm”:

The video is clever because the lyrics are super-imposed all over the screen as they’re singing. There’s no furigana, pronunciation guide for the kanji characters but they are singing it, so you can still see how they’re read.

Honestly, I can read most of the lyrics, but I’m pretty slow so I have to pause the video sometimes. The only way to improve is practice and exposure. “Flight time” in other words.

Anyhow, catchy song, I like Kashiyuka’s new look and the video, as always, is super clever and artistic.

If you like Perfume, techno-pop or learning Japanese, enjoy!
