Music Video

PV shot

The music video for "Unmei" was directed by Noda Tomoo and produced by Murakoshi Hayato.

It features Kuu in a room with several music boxes, with couples of figurines adorning each. In another life, these figurines are really two lovers bound by a red ribbon of fate from childhood, yet they were torn apart by the woman's untimely death. In the end, a mirror shatters, and they and their worlds are brought back together. Kuu watches them spin in their glass music box together as the shards of mirror fall.
