Here's the Koki-Fujigaya connection I was talking about: http://enshinge.livejournal.com/632443.html#cutid1

Or if you don't want to read it, cliffnotes: Koki explains how on his 20th birthday the first text message got was from Fujigaya, and instead of saying "Happy Birthday" it was "I'm thinking of quitting." He replied back asking if Fujigaya really thought if he had done everything he could and encouraged him to stick it out. :)

And now to answer the question. ((Still Rachael. I know my username is a bitch. D: ))

For not really listening to Kinki Kids, I actually really like this song. I just wish the PV had more of a Spanish flare to it because the song gave off this matador vibe. The only thing Spanish or matador like I got from it was that the color red was prominent in an otherwise very mute-colored PV. I also think that Johnny likes filming in air hangers. Also, I'm confused with the random camera spins, the bubbles, and the crushing of the flower. What did the flower ever do to you, Koichi? I do like that they showed the other dancing off to the side during the solo lines in the beginning. I thought that was kinda neat. :)

YAY! I'm so glad you guys ended up liking it!! The two things the PV reminded of were The Osmonds circa the early 1970s and (especially) The Brady Bunch Variety Hour. The look fits the vibe of the song pretty well, I think.

I dutifully watched "Jounetsu" even though I'm not familiar really with the KinKi Kids and this song was before my time in JE fandom.

Here are my impressions: I was missing the sparkles but then I realized that this must be what it looks like when idols go grunge. The set-up is pure grunge but the dancing and matchy-match costumes are all idol.

The crotch-shot angle of the camera on the single person dancing was shocking at first but I got used to it... and then I began to enjoy it. A chain link fence is really passe; the helicopter should have been featured more - especially if they were paying for it. And there needed to be more two-shots. I prefer coordinated dancing to solo Flashdance dancing.

The ending was extremely epic, though, with that hawk-arm move to the backwards time-forwards time rain drop.

In short, the passion in this was for crotch shots. Not that I'm complaining... because I'm too busy making animated gifs.

1st - obligatory "OMGWTF Sexy Zone" comment. I'm with most of fandom in going - "but there's other juniors I wanted to have debut instead!" Also, the whole 11 year-old thing. Yeah, it's creepy that he's in a group called "Sexy Zone" but I'm also just really really not a fan of guys debuting before their voices change. Assuming that this is a permanent debut (have we heard one way or the other?) it's going to be 5+ years before I can stand to listen to him, and I think it's just really awkward when you can't go back and sing your own part in your debut song, you know? (See Chinen in HeySay or Keita in w-inds. - and how super-screechy Keita got for a while when he was still trying to hit those notes and really couldn't anymore.)

2nd - So Jounestu - Does the PV make more sense if you can understand the lyrics? Everything just seemed really random. The cuts to the bubbles or the sky or the rose were weird. The camera for the dance shots bugged me because I couldn't see their faces, and that's really just not a good angle for most people unless you're really focusing on the crotch? (Ok, so not complaining that much about the angle...) And the dance, especially towards the end, just seemed to be all the moves they could think of put together in a random order. Uh...and I guess the chain link fence is supposed to be a visual clue that they are tortured by their emotions or something?
I did like the shots of the one singing and the other dancing, and I do think the guys look pretty good overall. I suspect that this PV just didn't age well.
