Japanese girls rock group BAND-MAID released a special video today in preparation for their American performance debut at Sakura-Con next month.
Fans of Akihabara’s maid-cafe culture will enjoy guitarist Miku’s authentic and fun phrasing as the BAND-MAID members welcome their “master and ladies” to their first “service” in the United States.
