Late to the game?
I know, but better late than never!
And once again I repeat, BiSH, please! How about making a commoner better acquainted with your pieces of art next time, eh? How have I not known of your awesomeness until now?! Just when I think I have seen there is to see, something like this pops up and bitch slaps me!
Like, that bottom MV (Orchestra) was out last September! That’s like, a whole year! Should I be proud that I just noticed it in September when it came out in the same month last year?
I don’t think so!
Actually the MV from which I took the first cap (Hontou Honki) came out just a month later in October! I guess it was a good thing I took my time! I mean imagine having gotten a web rip of The Handmaiden, then these two MVs in succession!
A heart can only take so much!
The second PV (Orchestra) is the one that takes the cake for me, even though the first PV (Hontou) is the only with a real kiss! For the second we only got to see the idea of a kiss from behind heads whereas the other we actually got to see their lips meet!
The second wins because it had a story behind the yuri! For the first PV the kiss came out nowhere, without context, and out of the context of the other visual story aspect. Sure it supports the theme of the song but not the visuals!
But as always, I will be in the minority here (if not the only one) that prefers it to the first because most want their lips meeting to justify it as yuri! As for me, the second is miles ahead and I would take that any day of cheap kisses! Emotion is where it is at! You see the innocence of their love and how it is affected by the harsh reality and the real reactions to that happening! The get caught, one girl transfers schools and the other is to scared to say something in that last chance! it is only natural. Not many have that much courage! When faced with such harsh reality the flight side always wins over the fight side!
And so, while it was heart breaking (a good thing, I love me all emotions) to see the other girl leave without the other saying something, anything, despite having the time to say it but got too scared, while it is maddening to see one of the girls be pulled away as she reached for the other, crying out for her to do something, grab her hand, anything, but the other is too scared to do anything…
All real and all sweet, in all its bitterness!
Favourite MV, obviously, from BiSH, I mean!
And now if you will excuse me, time to go get to know more about these girls. I am already eying their concerts and have grabbed all PVs i could find of them! In the mean time, enjoy more caps and the PVs…
