Manga Author: "You'll be surprised at how the song is perfectly matched with the film."
The official website for the live-action film project based on Yuki Suetsugu's shoujo manga series Chihayafuru today released a 90-second full trailer for its upcoming third part "Musubi" (The Conclusion) introducing the new theme song "Mugen Mirai" (The Infinite Future) performed by three-member techno pop unit Perfume.

The story of "Musubi" is set two years after the second film, focusing on the protagonist Chihaya Ayase (Suzu Hirose) and other main characters' third year life at their high school. In addition to the all of the main cast reprising their roles, Kento Kaku newly joins as Hisashi Suou, the current karuta national champion. "Musubi" directed by Norihiro Koizumi (The Liar and His Lover) will be released in Japan on March 17, 2018.

Meanwhile, the manga author Suetsugu also posted a special illustration inspired by the Perfume members
and Suzu Hirose:
"Perfurme again performs the theme song for the 'Chihayafuru Musubi' film. I draw an illustration inspired
by my happiest feeling when I heard the announcement. It feels like being cuddled close together with the
godesses who belong to a diffrent world and can't stay together. 'Mugen Mirai' is too perfect for the film!
You'll be suprised at how the song is perfectly matched."
