Bite the buLLet, don’t puLL the trigger, hoLd tight.

I don’t hate One OK Rock’s Cry Out. But I don’t Love it either. My first reaction after I heard it was “Whew there are a LOT of stuffs going on here” and not aLL of those stuffs are good.
That’s what I think about the MV, which was reLeased earLier today.

After watching it for the nth time (sorry, Mr. Boss (^o^;) ) a crazy and stupid idea suddenLy popped inside my head. I mean, the pLot of the MV is actuaLLy simpLe but unfortunateLy it was crowded with unnecessary things Like too many repetitive sLow motions and gLimmering things, so why don’t thicken the pLot aLL the way and deveLop it to be a movie story? Haha.

So basicaLLy it wiLL be a vampiric gangster movie.
First scene, a boss of a gang was instructing his honchos to kiLL some rugrat kids because they.. have done something bad that ticked his nerves (any idea?)
Then everything goes as the MV goes, minus the band. Honchos attacked. GirL being stupid, got shot, died. Guy got shot, died too.
Or aLmost died.
Long after the honchos were gone, Guy, with GirL’s LifeLess body coLd in his arm, was stiLL gasping for Life when The DeviL came to the spot. Guy and The DeviL made a deaL. The DeviL agreed to bring GirL back to Life, but Guy wiLL have to do aLL The DeviL wants him to do. PLus, GirL wouLdn’t know that Guy is stiLL aLive.
And so GirL Lived again. And Guy, having been restored to fuLL heaLth after drinking The DeviL’s bLood (which may cause some side effects if you catch my drift), was stuck running errand for The DeviL. LittLe did he know that GirL had aLso struck a deaL with The DeviL to gain power to destroy the gang that took Guy away from her, which turned her into a -guess what!- vampire.

ActuaLLy, that’s it, basicaLLy. (No, actuaLLy I’m aLready running out of idea and just want to quit typing on my phone ASAP) What I have in mind is in the end GirL wiLL die anyway, this time for reaL. And Guy wiLL.. WaLLow in despair for the rest of his Life? KiLL himseLf? What do you think? (^-^;

Okay, Me, back to work now!

  1. Hi amadl! Wah! I think the latest mv was super awesome! I think it gave the band a more “universal” appeal, not just the MV actually, even the song itself sounds more “international.” Hoping more people worldwide would come to know and like them. But your vampire story is interesting 🙂

      I agree, it has that universaL appeaL, and I can see many many girLs wiLL go crazy over Taka here ^^ Maybe I’m just disappointed because Tomoya onLy had so LittLe screen time 😦 and there are aLmost no shots when the whoLe band appear together on screen..
      Or maybe I’ve been watching too much Vampire Diaries and gang dramas on TV ^^;

      • Yes! Taka is super gorgeous here! Taka fan here, hihi. And yeah, very little of Tomoya and group shots of the band. But I actually liked the Ryota slowmo shots. The reaction in his face was such perfect. But yeah, there could have been more band group shots. 🙂

        Even I was super tempted (to.. pat his head) when he shows up with that wet hair.. But wet or dry, Toru has the most fabuLous hair ^^

    My favorite part of the MV is probably towards the end with some more real-time mic-grabbing, headbanging in the water. I agree with you with the lack of Tomoya, and everyone>w<)
    now he is this faraway
    (* 0)—/////////////—-(' – ')

    If this makes any sense.

    Same goes for Toru's sound. Ryota's role is much bigger than their old times, so I won't complain. Evolution..

      I actually don’t hate the mix of the song this time around. I realized that it is just as hard as their previous songs, and the mixing work is helping it not sound too loud.

      Though…Taka’s voice just seems so faraway now.
      He used to be this close to our ears

        That makes perfect sense! And (‘ – ‘) was probabLy how my face Look when I first heard the song and saw the MV. But actuaLLy I’m finding myseLf Liking the song more and more, though I stiLL find some parts.. bothering.
        Ah, 2 more days to go! (≧∇≦)
