If I have watched the NEWS Nippon PV before, than it was years ago and I do not remember watching it, so here's a play by play. It starts out very out-of-spacey.

Will NEWS be the first musicians to go to outer space? (Which would be awesome~) Or perhaps they have been abducted by aliens in a flying saucer. Either way, they are happily dancing while first declaring how Johnny's is the best. Props the old guy for advertising in such a manner. (This whole "Johnny's promoting" in the beginning reminds me of Hey!Say!JUMP's Ultra Music Power where JUMP stands for Johnny's Ultra Music Power).

How many people are in NEWS at this point?!? That 7 count goes to a honeycomb picture scene with seven people but there are nine people dancing. What is with that? Legit singing starts, and I really don't think the song, which sounds rather encouraging of course, matches the PV. When I hear the song, I think of nature. I feel they should be singing in like a meadow. This is mostly because of the "Fly away, far away, tsubasa hirogete" (that means spread your wings, right?) Well, technically only things like birds and bats and whatever actually spread and retract wings, so I thing of birds flying across a blue sky over a green expanse. NEWS should dance in the middle of a field or whatever with pretty birds flying over. Quite the opposite image compared to the whole exploring outer space while dancing that's in the PV.

On a side note, I can barely recognize and tell apart who's who since they are sooo much younger. At the end of the PV, they are returning to Earth, but weren't they just singing to fly far away? Don't contradict yourselves!! NEWS! Go find me that green meadow with the birds on an alien planet!

Whoa, that was such a long comment! To sum things up, the song is very pretty and uplifting and the PV is very cool looking, but they don't fit together in my head. A happy pop song equals 'sun shinning, birds singing' to me, while outer space feels more for...rock style or at least more synthetic sounds. It was still very lovely though. ♥
