Cherish has sentimental value because it was one of the first Johhny's video I ever saw. Rewatching it I remember how I only noticed Ryo and Massu. Ryo for obvious reasons and Massu because he had the most cherubic face I wanted him as a little brother. I wish this wasn't my first introduction to YamaPi because it took a long time to get past that hair. But watching this again I still love this video. The song and dancing just puts you in a good mood. It's still one of my favorites.

Probably pushing your deadline again. Ahh well, if I don't make it in that's fine. Long comment is long and ridiculous anyways.

I had actually forgotten Uchi was in Cherish! Long story short, I got into JE fandom after Uchi was suspended but a month or two before Kusano was, and got interested in NEWS after seeing Kusano in one of the idol magazines. NEWS was my 2nd group after Arashi and Cherish at the time was one of my favorite songs/PVs, so it's a little sad to see Kusano here again.

That said...I still find him cute and that's even creepier than it was 5 years ago when I was already too old for him....

Right, so really that said...I'd forgotten most of the rest of the PV. Uchi was always kinda that strange figure that I knew of in theory. Tegoshi is creepy. I called Yamapi "Yamapink" in my head for a while due to fandom and those gloves. Also, he looks kind of dead inside here. Or is that just me? On the positives - I always liked the choreography and the song is still a good one. Sweet sounding and nice. Ryo looks good here too...Makes me nostalgic for those days.

Or really for Kusano...sorry NEWS fans, I guess I just never quite got over him.
