小西真奈美's Sunny Day Promo Video

March 13, 2008

Konitan's music video for "Sunny Day" has been posted on Yahoo! Japan apparently, but I can't tell because my IP address is blocked. Those of you residing in Japan or with enough know-how to mask your IP address will probably have better luck.

There's also a press conference with the cast from "Sweet Rain 死神の精度" on Yahoo! which is also blocked for me, but fortunately, I think there's an alternate, non-nationalist version at MovieWalker, in additional to a full-length trailer.
