Participants include WOW members, Shigeki Hattori (graf), Yoshio Kubo, Gwenael Nicolas, Koichiro Tanaka (projector inc.), artless, Masashi Ishiwatari (Ikenobou) and art direction by artless.


On June 29, they threw a release party in WOW’s office. Collaborators in the project and many guests joined the party.
