Sing a Bit of Harmony Previews Judo Musical Scene

The Sing a Bit of Harmony Twitter page has uploaded a preview of one of the anime movie’s musical sequences, which features the jazzy “Lead Your Partner” song during a judo match between the AI Shion and judo club member Thunder. 

A longer, region-locked version of the clip was released on YouTube. Both versions will be available for a limited time.

Sing a Bit of Harmony premiered on October 29 in Japan and is set for a January 2022 release in the U.S., Canada, U.K., Ireland, Australia, and New Zealand. Funimation describes the film as: 

Sing a Bit of Harmony tells the story of the beautiful and mysterious Shion (Tao Tsuchiya) who transfers to Keibu High School where she quickly becomes popular for her open-hearted personality and exceptional athletic talent… but she turns out to be an AI (artificial intelligence) in the testing phase! Shion’s goal is to bring chronic loner Satomi (Haruka Fukuhara) “happiness.” But her strategy is something no human would expect: she serenades Satomi in the middle of the classroom. After finding out that Shion is an AI, Satomi and her childhood friend, engineering geek Toma (Asuka Kudo), steadily warm up to the new student. Along with the popular and attractive Gotchan (Kazuyuki Okitsu), the strong-willed Aya (Mikako Komatsu), and judo club member “Thunder” (Satoshi Hino), they become more and more moved by Shion’s singing voice and earnestness even as her antics bewilder them. But what Shion does for Satomi’s sake ends up involving them all in some serious pandemonium… Get ready for the heartwarming story of a not quite market-ready AI and her classmates!
