After waiting for what seems like an eternity, the full PV for Hey! Say! JUMP’s new single, Over, has finally been released. With only 3 days until the single is released! That’s some brilliant marketing right there. XD
Over the past 2 weeks we’ve been pretty much bombarded with PV previews, 3 in total. So, it felt like we saw a good chunk of the PV. And it turns out that we actually did see most of it, because there’s really not much going on in the PV. The PV is 6 minutes long, you’d think that they would do something exciting with the extra minute and a half. However, the entire time before the song starts is spent on the phone. I mean, I know the whole song is like a phone conversation, but the talking in the beginning was actually a little boring. What I did understand of it was, apparently Rysouke was dumped and the members are trying to cheer him up. Which actually fits perfectly with the song. But I honestly could have done with out. It’s just like when AKB48 adds like 4 minutes to their PVs to add talking and a storyline. IBut I find it completely boring and I usually just skip it. XD
Off subject, but I understood like 90% of what they were saying, so yay for me. I understood pretty much everything except for Hikaru, the last thing Daiki said, and the last bit of what Ryutaro and Yabu said. No one cares though, so, I digress.
The rest of the PV are dance scenese and then their close up shots. Over the past few weeks I’ve gotten over the ugly dance set, and it doesn’t really botther me so much anymore. It’s not spectacular, but it could have been much worse. The close-ups are what I have a problem with. The whole PV is filmed in a school. Mostly the hallways and common area. Didn’t we just have a JE PV insanely similar to this one? Or are we supposed to forget that KAT-TUN’s White PV exists? And then the rest of the close-ups/group shots are in slow motion with random objects flying around. Which is what they did in their last PV for Arigatout ~Sekai no Doko ni Itemo. But in this PV they did do it a lot more and in a more artistic way to make the PV more interesting. But it is still completely redundant.
You would think with all this scrutiny and harsh criticism that I hate the PV, but I don’t really. But I don’t love it either. It’s somewhere more in the middle for me. The guys look super cute, they are wearing normal clothes instead of ridiculous costumes, and the overall look is 100 times better than their last PV. Yuto. Especailly since he looked super adorable. Much like any PV, there’s obvious pros and cons. This PV is probably at about a 6 for me. And is probably their 2nd best PV. However, this PV needed more
Ryosuke looks gorgeous, as usual.
Has anyone else noticed that Daiki has been getting extra attention lately? He’s the 2nd main focus in this PV after Ryosuke.
Hikaru’s hair is pretty unfortunate in this PV.
Ashita wa ashita no kaze yo fuke~ Yuto’s adorable and said the most adorable line of encouragement.
The face Ryosuke has to make to show that he’s being cheered up is so stupid and obviously fake.
Hot. Ryosuke looks innocent and sexy at the same time.
Can I just point out how hilarious it is that Ryosuke is wearing a hair clip? Johnny’s: making your favorite idols act effeminate since the 1960’s. XD
Yesh, head on this isn’t really a good hairstyle.
I still don’t understand the random obelisks. But whatever.
Yabu looks hot, but Keito is all derp in the background. Lolz.
I really need to stop making caps of just Ryosuke. But he looks so good in this PV.
Yuto, why so
I love how Daiki is the only member to not make the same exact expression during this random epileptic montage.
Just incredible. *O* No other member is trying half as hard as Ryosuke is too look hot. I kinda wish they were.
Takaki actually looks pretty cute with this hair.
There’s just no words.
I don’t really like that my favorite are shoved to the back.
Random floating objects, where have I seen that before?
Oh yeah that’s right, the Arigatou PV.
I love how Inoo is trying to look cool here. It’s not really working for him though. XD
Adorable! This post has become so Ryosuke biased, but I don’t even care. H’es shown the most and looks the best. What do you want from me?
Of course it ends with a random Ryosuke butt shot. I mean, can you think of another way to end it? But seriously lolz.
