The video is interesting, but I think I still would rather have had a non-animated PV. It's kind of like Do Me More in that the CM it was used for made you anticipate a certain kind of PV, but the actual PV goes in a totally different direction. I like how they incorporated her dogs into the PV though haha and you can tell they used Namie's face for the girl.

to be honest.... i like it, it's new and fresh, she said with her whole new single she wanted to try something different and she did, i like her single and the PV's. i can't wait till it comes out, 6 more days! XD i havent downloaded the songs or anything, i'm waiting for the single so i don't over listen the songs b4 it does, lol GO NAMIE! XD

O and i cant wait to see how people say it is a copy of break the ice by britney, or she needs to dance a lot, lol

I liked it. It was something different! I liked the theme to this PV. It's cool to see that Namie is taking charge of her videos and cares about the environment.

Wow I absolutely loved it! I love the meaning, the futuristic sci-fi theme, saving the world, etc. It shows that Namie isn't all just about dance but also cares for our planet and our future.
You can really tell that the character from the future is the present Namie with her long hair and sense of maturity. And the second character is her in her younger innocent days living on a peaceful island, presumable Okinawa. It shows that they are one in the same person but also shows how people change with time and what can cause that change.

I kind of thought the Namie-bot instilled herself into the young girl in an effort to change the fate of mankind and the Earth.

In the first attempt, Namie-bot was too late; the Earth was a hostile environment for any form of life. In her second attempt, she managed to stop a missile from completely annihilating a city that's in the process of destruction. Yet, a huge super beam destroys the entire planet anyway, along with Namie-bot. Finally, third time is the charm! She goes back further enough that life is still in existence, and attempts to alter fate by instilling herself into the young girl.

That's what I think anyway..

^ Thats kinda what I got too. At first she didn't go back in time far enough to save anything, and then eventually (at the end) she does.

I quite like the video too, and the message ^^. It would be harder for Namie to act this out in person, so animating it was a good choice, and allowed her to do something different :)

The animation PV is very well made and I think it promoted the song well - like how the "Save us doctor chant" really ties to the part where she time travels and that the message of the PV plays off part of the song's lyrics/meaning but not completely. I really like the scene were her robot self got hit by the bomb; so nicely drawn/made - it's the sparkles I think.

Namie has always been an artist that seem to cared about the world; besides donating money to charity in the past (in Hawaii and the tsunami in SE Asia)and participating in some campaigns, I can feel that she's a humble person (and a MOM).

Sorry back to PV...refreshing and loved it.

excellent...they pay a lot of efforts on the MV...u can see the story goes smoothly based on the lyrics, the rhythm and beat...

A FABULOUS MV with GREAT EDUCATIONAL STORY.

To the person who mentioend DMM PV. I don't think DMM went in a complete different direction like you suggest. DMM PV went the same direction as the commercial, but it sucked big time.

I love this animation PV, it's so different and cool! I was afraid that they'd gimp out on the animation budget and make the whole thing look all glitchy, but it's so smooth and the scenery is so beautiful!

After watching this PV, I started to like the song even more. Now the lyrics make sence ^^. I want them to continue the story, it's very interesting! ^^

DEANA said...

wow... i really love it, like in the begining i thought "WTF?" but after i saw the all video i just liked the meaning of the song and of the video, and it is so AMAZING!

to say the truth, i like it more then WILD's PV.

Haha the more I watch it, the more it grows on me. I can't wait for a high-quality version. It is gorgeous even in youtube. And @ vaoileto, DMM did go in another direction unless you think the showgirl/sexy theme of the CM was translated into the "fiction" theme of the PV somehow... I personally don't see any connection, but that's my opinion. They both had some weird background characters, but I think the connection kind of ends there.

I love Anime.I love Namie!
Peace!!

I think that the video was AMAZING!!

I think I am the only one who thought of Iraq/Afghanistan/Iran/Palestine etc+Weapons of mass destruction in Namie's second attempt! But I think that the video went past our environmental concerns and addressed the war/power hungry issue, our consumption and folly craze, and our need for world peace.

But that's why I feel that this video is her deepest yet.

Nate @ Jpm is such a douche. <3

^ LOL. He is.

I agree with everyone basically... except on DMM because I loved it, fuck you. And um, I just think Namie's so sweet! I think the little girl could be her of the past- I mean it makes sense, I don't know. "Please change the past, please save US Dr." "I want to tell him" idk. And she was with koto and gatchan too so... haha. I really hope they continue the story with another song. The animation is so interesting and since I am an anime lover I just love seeing my favorite artist in anime form! It's so cute!

I loved it! It made me cry because it's kinda sad :( But I think it was really good!

I really love the meaning behind the video and I also really like the song. Many people actually like the song but hate the video because it's anime-but I like it because it's something new and original, instead of Namie just dancing and singing. I think she really reaching out.

I liked the Dr. song better than Wild before but this video made me love Dr. even more =) I love the meaning the PV had shown <3 Sums up pretty much what our future looks like from this point on if we continue what we do =/...except maybe the blobs eating away life that is...xD
