'Tis Rachael again~

I really hope that Kisumai get to debut. For serious. That Nakayama Yuma kid still pisses me off. :/ Did that ever get cleared up?

On to this weeks question:

While I love KAT-TUN and this PV, I honestly can't watch or listen to this song anymore without thinking of this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HEIVrZRGt7I The person who made the parody is pure genius, but now I find myself singing words that she put in and not the actual lyrics.

On the PV though, I do like that somewhere out there there is a JE costume designer that had some sense to NOT cover them with feathers, sequins, and dead animals completely. It also reminds me of how much weight Kame has gained. It makes me want to force feed him cheeseburgers. The PV also, out front, says that "This is Jin and Kame....and those other four." Whenever you see the other four try to get in front, it pans to a solo shot of either Kame or Jin ((but usually Kame, I noticed)). However, for their debut PV, I thought it was really good, and it definitely set the image that they have today.

I hate to be negative since KAT-TUN is my favorite but I have never liked this pv. They are trying too hard to look cool and it comes off as juniors pretending to be sempai. However this was their first pv so I'll cut them some slack. I think if they did this video now it would be much better. I did like the plane in the background.

And thanks to Rachael for parody link. It gave me a good laugh.

For some reason this PV always makes me giggle. Maybe it's that uncontrollable fangirlness or something, bit there's just something epicly amusing about it. Not to mention this gave me a reason to watch it on the bus on the way to school, when it was early and it suddenly became that much funnier. I like the way that they designed it - it looks sort of like a making of within a PV. Plus a lot of dance scenes! I've seen lots of groups with specific dance shot PVs, and I always like to see what the boys can do, so even though there are also lots of super... Different fan wind tunnel thingy shots, the dance pulled me in and caught my attention.

Now that I think about it, the making of aspect might apply to the title. "real face" as in "this is the real us even while we make the PV." Whether or not it really is them being themselves is totally up for debate, but the thought itself is there. It helps it seem more natural, I guess. Love the song, though! Harmonies are amazing. And super fun to listen to.

Creepy sheep in Kinki Kid's PV? o.0 Now I really need to see that...

Real Face PV = crotch shots. Seriously. I like the song, its in the kind of music style that I really like. The PV itself sort of makes sense, "living on the edge" could tie in with 'bad boys in a warehouse' and the themes of hardship and showing your true self, your "real face" are conveyed well. The parody Rachael mentioned is love! I watched it before I had ever watched the original/eng-subbed version and think it totally fits!! ^.^

The "Real Face" PV is actually one of my favorites (that along with Lips.)
What I love best about it is that this is their debut song: meaning that this song seems to be saying, "This is us as we are." The boys' talents are brought forward such as Jin and Kame as the lead vocalists, Maru as the talented beatboxer, Koki's outstanding rapping, with Ueda playing the guitar and being pretty and Junno just being adorable (later we realize that he is our own personal monkey in gumnastics and bad puns (but we knew that already and love him all the more for it.))
The colors used are mellow but dramatic because of the lgihting technique which brings out their expressions more and enhances the dancing. What I love about it is that it's very bright in the "set" and very dark in the warehouse. This makes me think that the "set" is bright and light because that is what we see them as. KAT-TUN is told how to act, how to look, where to go: all for the sake of the fans and publicity. However, the dark "warehouse" is shadowy and dark, like secrets: who they really are and what can't really be show to the fans: hence the title "Real Face."
The dancing itself is fluid, jerky, and open: as if to say that there is nothing hidden about them no matter where they are (the warehouse or the set.)
The style of clothing actually fits the PV and them as people that we, the fans, know. Kame with his jacket (that we will forever see in later PVs and performances), Koki with his hat and gangster outfit, Ueda is normally seen in the fur and tanktops (from the PVs I have seen anyway), with Jin in anything sexy (let's admit it, the boy could wear a trashbag and it would be sexy), Maru with "normal" clothes or something wrapped around his waist, and Junno is in something that is adorable just like his personaliy.
And if I can just throw in the hip movements... wait, I won't go into that. That'll be too long and bring out the fangirl that I have sworn to hide.
The lyrics are fitting for a debut song and for a song about themselves and what they want to accomplish as a band (from what I can see.) What I think fits it most though is the part where they sing, "I feel like I can be grown up/ ... I'm going to fly away from here right now/ the grief and these tears are my step to the future/ So I'm going to break it with all my might/ I'm going to get my hands on what's real."
I suppose I'll stop here. There's so much that can be said about KAT-TUN and their PVs, but I'm not sure we have the time for that!
Keep up the great job and I look forward to the next podcast! Happy Halloween!
