Title card to the music video

Status: Partially Found

Pink Crows was a cartoon band, produced as a side project of the artist NOBODY. They released three singles in 1985, and later ended that same year. The story behind the fictional band is that they are “a pop group of aliens who came to the earth from far away stars called pop gear.” Their 3rd single "Suddenly Want You!" was also adopted as the theme song for the anime series "Shōwa Ahozōshi Akanuke Ichiban!."

The Music Video

According to the Japanese Wikipedia article for the band, animation company Sunrise was involved in the animation production, and an article about them in My Anime magazine's April 1985 issue shows many images that are believed to be taken from a promotional video of the band.

After searching through the tweet history of user STAR_ZANS (who was the first to point out the My Anime article), both the manager of the band and the director of the film has been discovered. The manager of Pink Crows was Mr. Terumi Yoshida, and the director of the film was Mr. Takeji Yamana.

Possible Airings

So far, two Japanese social media posts have been found that discuss a music video for the band Pink Crows; both of them say that they saw it airing on the Japanese music video TV program "Music Tomato".

ピンククロウズ「(曲名不詳)」

全編アニメ、ピンクのカラスが3羽で唄うロカビリー、声は1オクターブ上になるエフェクト掛かってて肉声不明

ただただ何だったのアレ、って感じ、ピンククラウドじゃないよ

[Google translation]

"Pink Crows "(song title unknown)"

full-length animation, pink rockabilly sing crow at 3 birds, voice real voice unknown and it takes effect to be on one octave

was just What is it, what is it is, it is not a pink cloud

https://detail.chiebukuro.yahoo.co.jp/qa/question_detail/q1112497856 :

22年くらい前ですが、「ミュージックトマトジャパン」という番組で放送されていた曲について教えてください。タイトルと歌手名共に、記憶に自信はあるのですが、ネットで検索しても出てきません。

歌手名(バンド名)は、「ピンククラウズ」で、

タイトルは、「She’s my pinkish」だったと思います。

charの「ピンククラウド」とは関係がないと思うのですが・・・。

ビデオは全部アニメで、カラスがバンドを組んで歌っているものでした。

詳しい方いらっしゃいましたら、教えていただけませんか。

よろしくお願い致します。

[Google translation]

About 22 years ago, please tell me about the song that was being broadcast on the program "Music Tomato Japan". Both the title and singer's name are confident in memory, but even if you search on the net, it does not come out.

I think that the singer's name (band name) was "Pink Crows"

and the title was "She's my pinkish".

I think that it has nothing to do with "pink cloud" of char ... · · ·.

The video was all anime, and the crows were singing together bands.

If you are familiar with us, could you tell me?

Thank you.

This last one seems to confirm that the music video is for the song "彼女はPinkish", from their second single.
