Commercialized Songs

Using music in popular media (TV shows, commercials, movies, video games, etc.) is a great way to promote a band. It "commercializes" them, letting mainstream audiences hear them and potentially buy their CDs. ^^

Below is a list of moumoon's commercially used songs. This list might get bigger in the future, so stay tuned!

BANITASU (Vanitas)
(Theme Song [TV Drama]) - "Dolce"
Aired on Fuji TV. I'm guessing that "Friday Prestige" is the name of a TV program block that airs every Friday. Each week, a new drama movie is shown, but none of these movies are connected to each other.

my Secret Santa
(Theme Song [Commercial? Mascot?]) - Mono Comme Ca
Mono Comme Ca is a Japanse fashion line. Supposedly, moumoon did this song for them...but I don't know if it's being used for a new mascot, like their "Let's dance in the moonlight" CDS. I can't find any solid evidence...and of course, it's not listed at their official site, either. =\

Anyway, there's a short music video/PV for the song...and it's really cute! It's made in a style similar to the "Do you remember?" PV. ^^

Niconico Douga (a website similar to YouTube) has their own monthly music show (which I guess is a pun on "Aud[i]o Check"), dedicated to new music releases.

Wild Child
(Ending Theme [Anime]) - Yu-Gi-Oh! ZExAL
Third ending song; aird on TV Tokyo. (Also, I really think it should really be read as "zeal". That "x" in the middle is like a decoration or something...but every site I've been to writes it as "Zexal") Created for their "Manten" product line. I'm not sure what "Planetarium" is, but their English website says that they make "diagnostic imaging systems", which can be used by doctors and (probably) architects.

(Theme Song [Promo Commercial]) - "The Amazing World of Gumball" special promo
Used in this longer "special promo" (i.e., a "commercial + music video") for the Japanese version of "The Amazing World of Gumball", which is a cartoon that airs on Cartoon Network. Some of you might remember that Cartoon Network was famous for doing a LOT of these "commercial/music videos", like this old one for the U.S. version of Dexter's Laboratory.
