Kanjani8-Ai Deshita PV preview

Recently a PV preview for Kanjani8’s upcoming single Ai Deshita was released. The song is currently being used as the theme for Nishikido Ryo’s drama Papadoru.

Now, even before Ryo-chan left NEWS I’ve been saying how I want to get into Kanjnai8 more. But that never really happened. And after Ryo left NEWS obviously that feeling intensified. However, when I was finally going to get into Kanjani8 I put all my effort into Arashi instead. Which is a little sad because I genuinely do want to get into Kanjani8, especially since it’s now the only way I get to see my beloved Ryo-chan.

Since I don’t really follow K8 that closely I never really know about, or care about, when their new single is coming out. So I kind of miss all the excitement of a song and PV preview. But since I’ve been watching Ryo’s drama, Padadoru, Ai Deshita has really grown on me. Just like watching Zenkai Girl made Tsubasa ni Koi grow on me. So, I’ll bite and see what this single is like..

First off, I really like what I see of the PV so far. Kanjani8 always put a lot of effort into their PVs. Whether that effort is a nice storyline or general crazyness. The Ai Deshita PV doesn’t seem to be any different. Most of the PV so far seems to be Kanjani8 playing their instruments in the middle of the road at sunset. Which, in itself, isn’t really any spectacular. But at the end of the PV we do see that the sky continues to get darker until it’s night, which is actually pretty cool. I’m impressed by that. And can I just say that I love the outfits. I have to say that varsity jackets and school cardigans definetly peak my interests.

The rest of the PV is the standard close-up shots and scenes of the members in a house. But you can tell that they are setting up for more elements in the full PV. And is it just me or does that house look like the same exact that they filmed the Glorious PV in?

There is one thing about this song/PV I don’t get. If this is the them for Ryo’s drama why does Subaru get most of the lines and most of the focus in the PV? It’s a little unfair. But my bias towards Ryo is probably making it a bigger deal than it really needs to be.

  1. I don’t usually like soppy songs (Tsubusa ni Koi made me want to facekeyboard), but once again, the drama has made me like it. I’m such a consistent fan FML.

    Also, it wouldn’t feel like a Kanjani8 single if it didn’t have this much Baru- him and Ryo usually end up with equal vocal lead and I think that’s what’s happened here.

    The apparent set-reusing here made me laugh. As did Yasu’s weirdass hair.

    1. I’m the same way. Super sad songs or super slow songs usually bore me. Dramas always make me ending up liking a song. Which just goes to show just how good marketing dramas really are. Lol.

      Yeah, I know that’s the case since Ryo is the most popular and Subaru is the best singer. I don’t know how popular Subaru is since I don’t really follow them that closely. I was just saying that since it’s for Ryo’s drama he should get more lines and screen time, but he’s only getting the second most.

      Me too. It’s even more hilarious because Ryo is wearing almost the same outfits and at one point it almost looks the same exact scene from Glorious. Lol. Yeah Yasu’s hair was weird, he doesn’t look good blonde to me.
