The PV preview for KAT-TUN’s new single, To The Limit, is out.
I am absolutely in love with this song and I am also pleasantly surprised that the PV matches up to the amazingness of the song. It’s not the type of PV you really expect from an idol group. It’s not even the type of PV you’d expect after hearing the song. But at the same time I think it really works. There’s a lot of effort put into this PV. It seems to have a big budget and a clear storyline. And it’s so different from past KAT-TUN PVs. KAT-TUN usually has pretty decent PVs, but they hardly ever have storylines.
The previews so far show the members of KAT-TUN all being in a bank during a robbery. Kame, Maru, and Koki work there, while Taguchi and Ueda are hostages. It’s a bit of a darker theme compared to the realativly happy or mature PVs KAT-TUN usually makes. And I’m assuming the lyrics of the song work well with the theme. Since they’re most likely about being stretched to the limit in some way. But I don’t speak Japanese, so I have no idea.
The only drawback of this PV are that it’s probably supposed to be taken more seriously then it seems. There are parts of this PV that I can’t help think are adorable or hilarious. Which probably wasn’t the intention at all. Also, I kind of wish Koki worked in the bank itself instead of being a security guard. Him in a suit and glasses would have been pretty sexy. Ridiculous hair or not.
