The six-chapter series' second part is set for the fall of 2021
A full music video for "LIES & TIES," the OP theme song for the first chapter of the Princess Principal Crown Handler film series is now streamed on YouTube. As with the TV series, the jazzy tune featuring the vocalist Yui Mugino is provided by Ryo Takahashi's solo project Void_Chords.
The opening theme song "The Other Side of the Wall" for the Princess Principal TV series in 2017 attracted a lot of attention due to its jazzy sound approach, which was far from the typical image of "anime song." And the ending theme "A Page of My Story" sung by the anime's five main cast members also expressed a completely different worldview and appealed to anime fans with its high musical quality.
The CD single of "LIES & TIES" was released one year ago, April 8, 2020. However, the music video had not been released until now.
