On the film's theatrical release day in Japan, a four-member Japanese rock band CreepHype posted a four-minute music video for "Monomane," the theme song for Dounika Naru Hibi / Happy-Go-Lucky Days, the four-episode omnibus anime film based on Takako Shimura (Wandering Son, Sweet Blue Flowers)'s short story manga collection book of the same name. The song was already included in the film's original soundtrack album released on October 21.
The live-action clip titled "MANGA MUSIC VIDEO" features various panels from Takako Shimura's original manga. In an original story on the film's theme of "A story of thinking about someone who was with you once, but is now far away," it tells a story of a man and woman who are parting away. Kayo Nakamura, known for her 2011 film Tokyo Oasis and 2017 film Ryokushuku Ongaku, served as the director.
