I've never really paid much attention to Kinki Kid's music-wise. My extent of them singing is the opening theme for "Domoto Kyoudai". ._____.''' So this PV was good to broaden my horizons, shall we say. :D

I liked the song enough, but I probably wouldn't put it on a playlist to have on hand. It had a jazz-like feel to it, and I like jazz, but I'm more partial to peppy songs, or jazz-like songs from groups I'm more familiar with. After watching the PV, I thought the mood that the color scheme set matched the song, but after reading a lyric translation ((and listening to the song one more time)) I don't think the PV particularly matched it all too well. The juggling clown kinda creeped me out a little, and when the sheep popped up, I was like "What?" And I swore that Tsuyoshi had a mullet at one point, but when they showed him again I let out a sigh of relief, because while mullet!Tsuyoshi is a no-no. But aside from that, I enjoyed the PV. :D I thought the ending was cute, too...with the three leaves.

And my apologies for a very random review, and on a side note--if you use my answer for next weeks podcast, to save the onslaught of letters and numbers call me either Rachael or Cham. :D ((or if you want to be technical, the username is pronounced Synaka. 5=S, 4=A. the X's are there for fun. lol.))

Interesting letter seg question.

the PV is rather KinKi style, close ups, abstract, monochrome. but this one feels like someone's perfect PV. as if free-reign was given to craft a dream PV. only that i can't pick out who's dream PV it would be.

I don't want to end up in the minority, but it didn't really appeal to me. I really like Kinki's music and the pvs that I've seen (I don't follow those as much), but aside from the black and white close-ups, everything made me go 'what?'

I started out not liking the way that the close-up shots went, but I really started to like them by the middle of the pv. The song is nice, like usual. But the parts with the color and the... people? It reminded me of that old cartoon Samurai Jack. Not to say that's a bad thing, but I totally didn't understand what was going on. I suppose it got the solitude point across, but that sheep was just creepy. And the basket people~ they looked like scary monsters when they were sillhouetted.

I love the song, but the pv was kind of meh. Maybe once I follow them a little more I'll get used to it, but for now it just feels long.

Wow be careful what you wish for because this one is hard to critique lol.

I actually like the PV simply because of the warm colors and imagery. It was a bit weird but some of the images I could see as a nice portrait. The black and white shots seemed a bit disconnected to me. Maybe too much camera movement or the guys were just too nonchalant. I think the sheep was there just to make sure you knew it was all just a dream.

To sum up I think this PV complimented the song fairly well.
