KLab Inc., a leader in online mobile games, has launched a new multimedia music project called “aoppella!?” The project is based on a story of high school students discovering the art of a cappella which is a performance without instrumental accompaniment. Besides, eleven Japanese voice actors perform their beautiful a cappella in the project.
A school life a cappella project “aoppella!?” featuring 11 famous Japanese voice actors
“aoppella!?” is an original multimedia music project built on the themes of “youth” and “a cappella” by KLab. The project plans to release various content that allows fans to enjoy the new world of music and characters in the future. The team is considering, for example, video commentary on the charm of a cappella, character self-introduction previews, original music creation, etc.
It was on that unforgettable day that the boys found themselves changed.
In front of them were ordinary high school students just like them. There were no flashy costumes or musical instruments. But the moment they began to sing, a surreal harmony filled the air, and the crowd went wild.
“We want to sing like that! We want to shine, too!”
High school students captivated by the art of a cappella aim for the top in the exclusive high school a cappella contest, “Aoppella.” They try to perfect their pitch as the show is about to begin!
