90-second and 30-second full trailers for the forthcoming live-action film adaptation of Yama Wayama's Karaoke Iko! comedy manga are now online. The clip features the film's theme song "Kurenai" performed by six-member girl group, Little Glee Monster . The version newly recorded for the film is a cover of Japanese hard rock band X JAPAN's 1989 single song . Mayu commented on behalf of the members, "I never thought we would be covering 'Kurenai' in my life as a member of Little Glee! I think we will be able to deliver a very innovative song with the chorus, which I think is our strength, and add a unique touch to 'Kurenai' that is different from the version that everyone knows and loves." The trailer begins with a yakuza, Kyouji Narita (Go Ayano), who has a problem with karaoke, inviting Satomi Oka (Jun Saito), a junior high school student who is the head of the chorus club.
