Gawr Gura and Murasaki Shion of hololive have released a cover of Yuka Iguchi’s Platinum Disco, the second of their Monogatari themed covers. The illustrations draw inspiration from dance in the visual sequence, which was part of Tsukihi Araragi’s arc from Nisemonogatari.
Illustrations by Chyoke were compiled by Yunarun into the music video. Razu Nekono provided the arrangement for the track which was mixed by Gozu. The cover debuted on Shion’s channel.
