Phantom Illusion Campaign - June 2024

What lies behind the beautiful illusion that enchants the audience is...

A social media campaign debuting short clips featuring the characters' phantom illusions, following the release of the RtL groups' illustrations in June 2024. The tweets associated with them had unique taglines, which either referred to or hinted at the character's trap reaction trauma. Since they're slightly different from their directly-stated traumas, I thought I'd translate them for posterity!
With the exception of Chisei and Haruomi, who do not have trauma hashtags, each video concludes with a silhouette of the character overlaid with their trauma hashtags. The trauma hashtags are replicated from my translations on their profiles.
