Japanese rapper Rinne has released a full music video for his latest song “Blue Diary,” which has been featured as the ED theme for the ongoing TV anime adaptation of Yugo Kobayashi’s soccer-themed manga Aoashi. The song is included in his latest second full album “cloud achoo” released on April 20.
The music video was shot at a stadium, a first for Rinne. It depicts various youth of students, who aspire to become a soccer player and a manga artist. And as the role of a player admired by the student who dreams of becoming a soccer player, Maya Yoshida, captain of Japan’s national soccer team that has qualified for the World Cups for seven consecutive times, makes a guest appearance.
Rinne, who met his idol Maya Yoshida online, said, “I am very honored to have Maya Yoshida-san appear as a special guest, and I feel like my soccer boy heart has shined again.”
