As I was making my rounds today, I saw this freshly released promotional video from Sentimental Wink, an idol act I know nothing about. I found something that felt fresh like a liberated afternoon after skipping afternoon classes: playful and innocent while at the same time an act that marks an end of innocence. Well, Utatane Ne is the last remaining idol in this once trio, and she takes us on a train ride far away from urban sprawl. The singer/songwriter/photographer/model waits for her train, boards her train, and plays coy on the train. I have to be honest here and tell you that the PV doesn’t offer very much in terms of variety of shots, captivating narrative, or interesting effects. In fact the single effect, repeating frames to make the PV play like a series of still photographs, gets a bit tiring. But, I find myself responding emotionally to this work, and that is enough for me.
