The PV for Hey! Say! JUMP’s new single, “Arigatou” ~Sekai no Doko ni Itemo~, has been out for 2 or 3 days now. But it was in super low quality, and I completely refused to watch or review it until a high quality one was available. You can’t imagine how hard it has been to not watch the PV.
But I can rejoice because a high quality version is finally available.
But I’m surprised. Have HSJ fans not met KAT-TUN fans? According to them you’re not supposed to post the video anywhere until the release date. I guess HSJ fans didn’t get the memo about this unofficial rule. 😛
And I know I said before how I was really impressed by the song. But it’s actually growing on me. Mostly because of the 8 or 9 different performances of this song I watched. However, this song will never be my favorite. Right now it’s only my 3rd or 4th favorite JUMP single.
The PV is a little weird. It honestly looks like the whole theme for the PV is for it to be the sequel to Ultra Music Power. A majority of the PV is CG, which isn’t really a problem for me. The problem is that it goes from really expensive and impressive looking CG shots, to ones that look like some HSJ fan put it together on their computer. There are also these really scense where they are just sitting around that are hilarious because of how serious they look and how serious they are supposed to be taken.
Oh dramatic entrance only showing their legs.
Most fans hate them, but I LOVE their outfits.
However, I HATE these ones.
Woah, I just got a flashback of the Now and Forever PV.
The Now and Forever PV.
Ryosuke looks so hot.
Words cannot describe how sexy Ryosuke looks here.
Oh my god, look how ridiculous Chinen’s hair is!
In my spare time I moonlight as HSJ’s background graphics maker. I mean seriously, this looks terribly cheap.
I guess it is kinda cool to have all the foreign thank yous hover around.
Oh my beloved Yuto, how I wish you’d cut those long ulgy strands of hair.
Have I mentioned lately how sexy Yabu looks with dark hair?
I am not feeling Keito’s hair.
Ryosuke is just so hot!
Now this is some impressive CGI.
Strike a pose! This just looks way too girly.
Why so serious?
Keito looks a little shocked and Inoo looks bored.
Yabu is love.
This reminds me of their Tengoku concert pamphlet.
Here’s the PV. It’s not in high quality, but I thought most readers would care more about the facts that it’s subbed and less about the quality.
