Piece – Limited Edition Type B

February 19, 2009

I really like the cover for the ‘Limited Edition Type B’ for Aragaki Yui’s new single that i keep going on about – ‘piece’
This is the cover which Studio Ghibli’s Yoshiyuki Momose composed the art for. They also directed the music video.

Ah i wish i were richer so i could buy all editions, *sigh* It’s so cool that they all link together…so tempting..

I loved the jigsaw idea very much, but i think i prefered the swirly colour things on the covers a lot more than i did on the PV. They looked a little bit strange in the animated version too. You could totally tell the ‘animation person’ was from Studio Ghibli though, as it really reminded me of so many of their films! ❤

The theme apparently for this PV is “a girl wishing to reach out to people.” I can definately see Yui as this type of person anyway. I remember Haruma Miura once saying that he can “sense there is sometimes loneliness and anxiety in her expressions” which makes me realise that behind her beaming carefree smile, she’s an insecure person who’s still trying her best, through any troubles that may come her way, in order to give happiness to everyone. This makes me appreciate her even more because she’s showing shy people can be just as successful as more confident people. I’m glad she’s famous, she’s a very good role model for people as she emphasises how anything is possible. That is why i think her message to people is more than just her pretty face, but showing that not all celebrity’s are of the stereotype and talentless.
It does make me wonder though what she really thinks of people always commenting on her looks. As in, how aware is she of it? Does it make her worry about her looks even more thinking that she has a lot to do to keep up her reputation? That kind of pressure must be tough. Though i must admit, it’s kind of hard imagining her to have those kind of thoughts!! (I am naive and imagine her to be having ‘let’s go and play with the butterflies’ kind of thoughts..)
