Those who know how long this MV has been out, that is how long it has taken me in deciding if this MV belongs on this site, in other words, if this MV is relevant! After months I have decided that it is just too good, too sad, too emotional to ignore. It is now one of my favourites but this wasn’t the case when I first watched it. It has quite grown on me, or maybe it is I who has grown? Yes, I know it’s been just over a year but time is time, right?
If you can’t tell yes, that is a guy, or was! He went through the process of changing sex throughout the MV so by the end he is a full-blown Tri or Half-Futa to those familiar with hentai (which you should be if not, I am disappoint!). A Futanari is a true hermaphrodite and since our main here is not full futa and was in fact a guy who went into a transformation, s/he is thus half-futa.
And this post did not start of in a way I imagined so let’s move on.
This MV was recommended to be by someone and back then I was really strict when it comes to yuri. I was one of those, it ain’t yuri unless there is confessions and kissing and sex so I was really rubbed the wrong way when I opened up that YouTube link, only to be bombarded with Tran. And so the MV was buried and forgotten about for some time. Then I lost internet and I was going through my VID collection (Short videos which includes mostly MVs) when this came up again and I gob-smacked at how interesting this MV is.
At first I was reluctant in giving this observation since it might have been wrong and people might have been hurt by my insensitivity on the matter but the more times I watched the MV the more my theory was supported so I am going to say it.
Imagine going through all the trouble, all the pain, all that dedication, just to get close to the girl you love! Imagine changing yourself almost completely just to be close to the person you love! Imagine going through all of that only for them to not be affected as you imagined, as you hoped they would!
Now, of course the Crush here is not to blame! It’s not like she told hem (him/her) to go and change hemself! She did not know that s#he loved her. This was all on hem! So when the girl ended up crushing on someone else completely and choosing to be just friends with hem, no one here is to blame! I guess you could say that the Crush should have noticed that her friend must have had different expectations but then again, almost a third of the Earth’s population would be to blame for not noticing that people had crushes on them and not acting on them!
So, here we have a MV tackling multiple issues including homosexuality, identity crisis, gender issues, unrequited love and the complexity of friendship. Like, the first time I did not even think of this. All I saw was a, and pardon my language here, all I saw was a fake girl in a supposed lesbian MV so I got royally pissed.
Also when I finally finished it the first time, I guess the ending helped in better acceptance of this music video. After some despairing, not to anyone’s fault, not the Crush, not our girl/boy…Okay, in the end it is a girl so I might as well think of hem as a she! Anyway our girl in the end conjures up enough courage to visit her Crush, interrupt her phone conversation to this boy-crush (thankfully we never get to see him) by kissing her right on the lips, in a kiss so heartfelt, so strong that there was no place for misunderstandings!
Notice that the Crush despite being completely surprised, did not react negatively, did not pull away from the kiss (which went on for quite some time in kissing times), gently brought her phone down, probably forgetting to even end the call, and just stared dumbfounded at her friend.
You could clearly see that she finally got it, she got it and got it good. All her world probably got turned on its head. She was definitely going to have to re-evaluate it. I actually felt for her. Her life is going to get real complicated now whatever she decides. If they stay friends, they are going to have to put up with some garbage. They are not going to be together like they were. And they had some really cute moments.
They went on dates, Our Girl would help the Crush in some aww situations like reaching taller shelves that the Crush can’t reach. Doing each other’s make-up. Speaking of which, that lip-stick scene was so hot I was expecting something to happen. The Crush almost seemed to be figuring something out whether it be our Girl’s feelings for her or her own feelings but they had to be interrupted by that mysterious boy-crush!
They were such friends that they seemed to be having the time of their life together. There is also this scene where they are walking hand-in-hand and the mystery-guy shows up and the two have to separate but they do so slowly, almost like they wish to prolong that physical connection they have with each other for as long as possible!
But the heart was not just in their moments. Our Girl’s side of the story was just too heart-breaking as well. Here she had her crush being taken from her. Meanwhile on the other hand she is struggling with her own life probably second guessing her choices wondering what the point was! The pain she went through physically with the surgery on the side, there was the pain of heart-break and the pain of thinking that it was all for nothing! The scene where she would be alone crying, thy were filmed so well that only a monster would not feel for her.
Seriously, I am happy that in the end it seemed like her efforts were re-warded, at the very recognised! I am going to continue believing that her Crush returned her feelings in the end. She showed signs too, like I mention in the hand scene and the lip-stick scene! I am happy the more I think about it the more I love this MV.
And that is that.
