How do I achieve this japanese reverb piano sound?

Questions about producing? Ask them here.
How do I achieve the the sound of the first bunch of notes you initially hear on this promo track for Tokyo Ghoul:Re?

It sounds to me like a processed piano sound with reverb and delay and maybe a reverse effect but I can't put my finger on what gives it that specific timbral character.

Would appreciate any help!

Hi, Welcome to the forum HaiseSasaki ! Here are all our important links:

Firstly, they use a bright-piano, maybe with a touch of detune, but the 'rill' on the first note is played by a accomplished piano-player, almost like a shimmer of his fingers on a note, and with different pressure/ speed
So can it be 'emulated'?
Yes, but it will take time!
You need to work with the notes velocity, and im pretty sure, also the note length and positions.
I made vid where i make custom trance arpeggio-delays, and that should give you an idea of the importance of velosity:

Hello, thanks for the reply!

I apologise, I think I may have confused you by comparing the sound to that of a piano, i'm actually talking about the sound of the very first not that plays in the song, not the piano shrills that come after, i'm talking about the single notes that play every four beats, the very processed ding sound. almost like a soft synth xylophone with a long release and higher frequency reverb and delay. Unless that is what you're talking about in which case I have to look into it more! :)
For reference, the sound is rather similar to the first notes in this song too, in fact i've heard this particular sound a lot in j-pop over the years:

Yep, that is the bright slightly detuned piano :p
I would start from a MDA-piano, brighten it up, and detune some 5-7 %'ish
You may also like to enhance the higher freq's, like i do here:

Also often done with pianos, are octave doubling of all notes, either up (bright) or down (dark)
You're both right.
It could in fact be, a Bright piano with reverb added to it.

Some piano sounds, sometimes sound like a xylophone sound. No kidding there.

Just as bear suggested, use MDA piano, or find a piano soundfont.
Then, I suggest using the calf reverb plugin that comes with Lmms.
Add it to the piano sound, and tweak the dials.
