According to Nikkan Sports newspaper, Matsumoto Leiji produced a music clip of "Bohemian Rhapsody" by British rock band Queen. The six minute long video features Matsumoto's new manga "Gin no Koshika". The video "Bohemian Rhapsody ~feat. Leiji Matsumoto" will be available for mobile phones by the end of this year.

Queen has once used British animation for their music clip, and this time the members proposed Japanese artists for the creator of the music clip.

Very nice, hopefully this'll lead to more bands having anime styled music videos :)
I have to say, Im quite excited to see how they will animate the video to the song lol
(I loved Linkin Park's breaking the habit music video, but Im not sure if it was animated by some japanese artists)


I think that was Gonzo's work.

Can someone tell me where the entry for this anime is on MAL, so I can add it to my plan-to-watch list?

Yeah, I like Queen a lot and I have always wanted to see some of Leiji Matsumoto's work to see what it was like. This happens to be the perfect excuse to watch some.

Is there anything wrong with this at all? I think this may be the greatest combination of talents since....ever.

Interesting! This way anime theme will evolve and noone's gonna insult it anymore!

I hope it'll evolve further till I can freely listen to anime music without being looked down by my hypocrites classmates. :(

...Do they even know its "anime music" before you tell them? In the West, we make up themes for series. In Japan, they just have songs. What I mean is, an anime song is just a single from some Japanese artist. Its not like the Iron Man: Armored Adventures Theme.

So... when can we expect a creppy anime version of "I want to break free"?
And will Freddie have a part in this?

When I read this piece of news this morning, my reaction was, and I kid you not, "OMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMG!!!"

But seriously...this combination of Queen and anime: IT IS HAPPENING. Queen is my favorite band and "Bohemian Rhapsody" also happens to be my favorite song of all time, so I am extremely excited for this!

Im looking forward to see this whenever it comes out. Im interested in how this will play out with the song. Interstella66666 was just awesome!

YES AGAIN OH GOD YES.
Interstella 5555 with Daft Punk just wasn't enough. This shit sounds beautiful, my pants almost exploded off of me when I read it.

I am BokuSatchii and I approve this message. I'm excited for this music video - combining my loves of anime and 70's rock. How can I lose?

Oh wow, if this is the same guy who did the Interstella/Daft Punk video then count me in.

I really love Queen -and especially their song Bohemian Rhapsody- so this is quite great news for me *-* Cant wait for it x3

I'm also a huge Queen fan and can't wait for this one!

Nov 23, 2009 6:11 AM by MidorimaKazunari

Lol, I was a bit '=/ ' about this when reading the title alone, what with being a massive Queen fan. But actually, this sounds pretty damn interesting. I can't wait to see how this works out : D Should be cool ~
