VIDEO: Akira Jimbo Shows His Drum Technique for "Tonari no Seki-kun" ED

Using anything he can hit on a school desk

This tune is included in the forthcoming a compilation song CD "Tonari no Seki-kun: Uta no CD," which will be released on January 22. Check the "Set Them Free" clip and his real drum play below.
