Kyary Pamyu Pamyu’s New Jacket Covers Feature Robot KPP!?
KPP's upcoming tune “Family Party” will be used for Crayon Shin-chan’s new movie “Eiga Crayon Shin-Chan: Gachinko! Gyakushu no Robo To-chan (Crayon Shin-chan the Movie: Fight! Robo-Dad’s Counterattack)”
The singer dressed as a robot for the new jacket covers (both standard edition and first-press limited editions) to match the concept of Shin-chan’s new movie. Her robot-inspired image is cute and reverses the traditional concept of robots.
There will also be an anime cover edition to be released, which features an illustration of the robot KPP on its front cover. If you are either a Shin-chan fan or KPP fan, this collaboration edition is surely worth checking out!
KPP’s new song “Family Party”, written by sound producer Yasutaka Nakata, is based on the concept of the movie “Family bond” and sounds warm and sentimental.

■Eiga Crayon Shin-Chan: Gachinko! Gyakushu no Robo To-chan (Crayon Shin-chan the Movie: Fight! Robo-Dad’s Counterattack)
I will save Shinnosuke! I will save my dad!
The 22nd Crayon Shin-Chan movie
One day, Shin-chan’s father Hiroshi goes for a massage to get his strained back fixed. However, he comes back to home as a robot.
While Misae (Hiroshi’s wife) feels anxious and Shinnosuke enjoys the change quite well, the robot version of Hiroshi turns out to be convenient. The robot Hiroshi can be controlled by a remote control and pretty much do anything including cooking and cleaning!
However, this new change is indeed a dark conspiracy hatched by “Chichi Yure Doumei (The Association of Fathers)” to create a strong father figure for all the fathers in Japan.
Soon, many dads in the whole nation go out of control, and the Nohara family (Shinnosuke's family) and Kasukabebu start falling apart.
Can the robot Hiroshi and his family fight against this conspiracy?
All the families in Japan are being tested!
Featuring the most intense battle of middle-aged men, the movie brings a touching story that makes all fathers and families in Japan cry.
