Collaborative Project between GANMA! Works and Vocaloid P. Nanahoshi Orchestra Released a Promotional Video of "That Girl Is Cute... but Dangerous?," Using an Original Song "Why What? Sympathy"
COMICSMART Inc. (Head Office: Shinjuku-ku, Tokyo; Representative Director: Koki Sato, "COMICSMART"), a consolidated subsidiary engaging in the IP Platform Business of Septeni Holdings Co., Ltd. (Head Office: Shinjuku-ku, Tokyo; Representative Director: Koki Sato, Securities Code: 4293), produced a promotional video of That Girl Is Cute... but Dangerous? using Nanahoshi Orchestra's original song "Why What? Sympathy" in a collaborative project with Nanahoshi Orchestra (from. CaronzBekaluz) and released it on GANMA! official YouTube channel.
In this project, Nanahoshi Orchestra provides original music with motifs for each of the three titles of GANMA! In addition, Qzil.la, the Septeni Group's digital animation studio (URL: https://qzil.la/) produces promotional videos.
Following the first promotional video of this project, HE WAS MY BROTHER, that of Minikui Yuukaku no Ko released in May was also well received. The video has gotten favorable comments such as "I really love Minikui Yuukaku no Ko, and I'm moved by this video," and "I love it so much. I love not just the song, but how it is packed with illustrations and stories."
That Girl Is Cute... but Dangerous?, the third title of this collaboration, is a romantic comedy that begins when Kuroki, a high school boy, sits next to Chihara-san, a high school girl who is rumored to be an unpredictable type (Jirai-type).
This work has been popular since the beginning of the series, and the cumulative circulation of the first through third volumes has exceeded 150,000 copies.
The promotional video for this work is pop, catchy, and slightly mysterious, featuring Chihara-san's enchanting facial expressions, along with the song "Why What? Sympathy," which has a light and cute tune and lyrics that depicts the comfortable distance between the main characters.
In the future, COMICSMART will continue to collaborate with a variety of artists and music titles to deliver GANMA! works to more audiences, and pursue the possibilities of manga content.

Spontaneous, clumsy, and unpredictable (jirai-type)?
In the new school term, the seat next to mine is Mai Chihara, the rumored "jirai" type.
She gives off a somewhat dangerous vibe, but when I talk to her, she is kind of different from what I would expect?
A heart-pounding school comedy next to a cute "jirai" begins!
[Comments from a writer Ryon]
"Why What?" is a phrase that is packed with elements of That Girl Is Cute... but Dangerous? It is an exciting, cute, and absolutely catchy melody that makes me feel fresh and delighted every time I listen to it!
The atmosphere of the dialogue with Chihara-san is directly reflected in the music! I was shaking with both surprise and joy.
I was given the opportunity to understand my own work more deeply from a bird's-eye view of Chihara-san.
I am sure that you will be able to share this emotional intensity if you listen to it. My heart is bursting with excitement!
Thank you for the wonderful collaboration opportunity!
