Yoda Yuki x Tsutsui Ayame!
Life is back on track Boys and Girls!!
Now this, this is what I am all about!!! Those who know me know that I prefer less to more, Shoujo Ai to Yuri (Ah those were the times), Hand holding to sex, Eye contact to Kissing!
Yes, I am a weirdo! Shocking!
Thinking about it, I guess this is why I got into Idols in the first place! You know they won’t go some places so when they do something relevant, I know that it will be at the very edge, if they did go as far as they could!
So something like this MV is right up my alley, if you know what I mean! No spoon-feeding and those who prefer to be blind can be blind but if want to see, you will see and did I see!!!
The thing about Music Videos too is that they leave a lot for you to speculate on, usually due to being short on runtime and thus leaving a lot to the viewer to decide and sometimes the Directors probably don’t even do it on purpose because to them they know the story so it is easy for them to connect the missing dots.
But to us Viewers, we can’t help but speculate and in there lies the fun for me! Like, from the very beginning I was already in places thinking of different scenarios! The scene I am taking about is the one with Ayame-chan looking on to the couple ahead of her at their joined hands to be specific! She is sad as she solemnly walks behind them. It gets to much that she can’t anymore and turns to go the other way.
That there got my mind already spinning! Did Ayame like the Guy and was sad because he had a girlfriend? Was the Guy her boyfriend but dumped her for another girl? Was she actually in love with the girl instead?
From that point on I was already speculating and seeing different threads of the story! And that is before we even get to Yodacchi showing up, which she does right after said moment as she is there waiting when Ayame-chan turns around!
Talk about perfect timing! Like, what if Ayame-chan did not stop walking?! Was she just going to follow her all the way back to her home? I mean that is kind of chivalrous but on the other hand, stalker- like!
But let’s not go there! And let’s not speculate anymore. That being said as far as I am concerned Yodacchi was a friend of Ayame-chan’s and probably knew this ‘sickness’ that had befallen her friend and this day was the last straw! She was going to take matters into her own hands and make sure her friend found happiness again!
And so begins the absolute glorious miracle that is hand-holding! And what makes this even better is that in the beginning Yodacchi was the one who instantiated it but in the end it was Ayame-chan who took Yodacchi’s hand, thus showing the complete turn of events and Ayame-chan’s life from the beginning of the PV to the end!
But what’s even better is that if the two people Ayame-chan had been following had been like two girls one can just say she was lonely because she had no friends and their hand-holding was just, you know, friendly!
But the two were a couple so Ayame-chan was longing not for any type of hand-holding but that kind! And even ignoring what went on in between the two scenes of her seeing the couple and her taking Yodacchi’s hand at the end, you can totally tell this is not just a friendly journey!
That’s right, this was a journey of love, plain and simple!
Heck, they even ended up riding a boat off into the sea like…if that ain’t a metaphor, I don’t know what those are!!! Really, right in the title itself you already know this is about finding love! That is the sound of a heart racing and when you watch anime, what does that mean usually?
The PV is basically Yodacchi helping Ayame-chan out of her heart-break or love-sickness, whichever route you choose to follow, by spending time with her and showing her a good time and returning her to herself and thus making Ayame-chan fall in love with her in the process!
And even if one can argue that Yodacchi was not in love with Ayame-chan, does it really matter? If one person is in love with the other it’s still love, even if the other does not know or does not love them like that!
But let’s be real here, Yodacchi totally knew what she was doing and really, don’t get me started on those eye-loving scenes!
Anyway, jump over for more caps and the MV…
