The music video is relatively old, but it  is an original and an up-to-date one. It is directed and animated by Motomichi Nakamura. The key  theme of the  animation is a girl that wakes up from a long sleep and starts searching for a sacred apple. At the end of a nightmarish story the girl is able to find her apple but only to discover the real price that she has to pay for it.”
