All members of the K-Project’s fireblazing street gang by the name “Homra” seem to have abandoned the bar, left the streets, and started working part-time as per this promotional illustration for “Tower Records”.
The crew look to be enjoying their new occupation on the side – everyone appears satisfied, and whilst a fine sight certainly, the marketing implications are far too high. The characters are taken out of context from their daily life, now grinning cheerfully in aprons plastered with a company emblem, and smiling as if to say that nothing in life matters so long as they have Tower Records.
With the relaxed mood present, one could think everyone here has given up on fighting – forgetting the blue crew as since they have Tower Record aprons, that’s all that matters. The red-haired Mikoto who stands with back facing our direction is missing a few of his signature traits, such as the leather jacket – yet still does he express a satisfaction for no reason other than he has a “Tower Records” apron in hand.
Instead of a promotion, this looks more akin to an illustration on the effects of brainwashing – do note however, the gothic lolita is unamused, and it seems there’s no fooling a loli no matter what underhanded methods one may attempt to use.
When the series finally debuts, we’ll see if this loli turns out to be of the cruel and unforgiving sort – or perhaps, she’s as merciful as she is moe.
