I don't even know what to say. This is literal perfection. I'm so freaking HYPED for the video!!!!! That ending with the choir and Ayu's adlibs gave me chills.

GOR-GEOUS

I was hoping they hadn't shown everything and their would be another outfit but still, the quality is insane in comparison with Ohia and DaD. This is a job well done, from the track to the clip!

She looks great but her face is completely different with this pregnancy.
And she sounds great but also completely different.

The video is beautiful though.

I was about to post best PV since MAD WORLD and then realised... haha

Beautiful PV. I was afraid because of the director's past but it was very simple, very elegant.

Dayumm, I am stuck in a really boring online meeting, and I really really want to see the PV. I'm only getting more excited when I'm reading all the positive posts here.

Same here, almost doesn't sound like Ayu! It gets better afterwards though. and DAMN that PV is just gorgeous - though her face is weird lol
Love the arrangement as well, such a beautiful track!

I saw the comment about the ending being magical, and that’s exactly my thought as well and came to post as for her voice in the beginning sounding nasally, Yumin in the original sounds like that too, so I assumed maybe Ayu was trying to emulate that.

This whole release just blew me away. The song is everything: Ayu sings with such care and tenderness and sounds gorgeous, especially at the end (those last ad-libs are perfection), the arrangement is sublime, the build-up throughout the song is so beautiful and so well done, the choir adds such an Ayu stamp (and singing their parts lets me live my full back-up singer fantasy). And the video is so gorgeous, both of Ayu's looks are instantly iconic (especially the red one!!!), the sets and choreography and the dancers' looks are so good. She gave me everything I hoped for.

You just said everything I was unable to say! This is so perfect. It feels like such a big moment in her career.

It appears now but I'm not sure if Apple music works the same as Spotify, then you have to wait until march 12th 00:00 am in your current time zone!
