Bandai released a hilarious yet sad promotional video for their latest capsule product called Lives of Erasers. It’s a bittersweet love story about a couple who learn to accept their fate as erasers. The song is called “I’m Your Eraser” by Rubber Eraser.
Girl: I keep getting smaller and smaller.
This moment and this warmth turn into crumbs and disappear.
Girl: Together forever?
Boy: Yeah. Together forever.
Girl: I don’t want to disappear…
A guy who accepts his fate and a girl who resists hers
Girl: I don’t want change!
Boy: I know! But we get used, become smaller, and gradually disappear!
A magnificent love story that involves sacrificing life
Boy: No change is no fun.
Girl: I guess we’re going to keep changing.
Lives of Erasers
The erasers go on sale sometime this year. Part of me hopes Bandai will make this a mini-webseries, but another part of me hopes they don’t, because I don’t think I’ll be able to use another eraser again!
