A Random Blog of Everything I like
Important!!! To anyone who stumble upon this post…PLEASE LEAVE COMMENT (or at least fill the poll)telling me your version of Laruku’s 5 best videos. Arigatou minna 🙂
In the beginning of their career, Laruku didn’t make good videos. In my eyes, most of those early videos are usual.
As they grow older, their PVs (Promotion Video) are becoming more and more interesting. I’m not going to discuss about the quality of the song here…ONLY the video!!
Allert!! None of the videos I am going to show is uploaded by me, I merely search it in youtube because it’s abundant there.
Remember!! This is my own opinion…in other word, someone might have different opinion.
Here it is…my countdown of L’Arc~en~Ciel best 5 videos:
No.5 is Stay Away
Why? Because only in this video you can see Hyde, Tetsu, Yukihiro and Ken dance like a boyband 🙂 . I know that they are not really dancing, it was a computer trick BUT you have to admit that it is really interesting and creative.
No.4 is Hitomi no Juunin
This is the first video after Niji that took my breath away. I was literary speechless when I see this video. It’s very simple, the director only reverse the video…I’ve seen a lot of music videos doing the same thing, BUT unlike other video, Hitomi no Juunin looks so elegant and beautiful and somehow it fits perfectly with the beat of the song (tho it doesn’t fit with the lyric). Some people find this PV as bad PV because they can only see a glimpse of Hyde, Tetsu, Yukihiro and Ken at the end of the video…as for me, that’s the beauty of this PV.
The next 3 videos are the videos that I find so artistic…all three of them have different kind of art, all of them are very captivating.
No.3 is Niji
Niji shows Laruku’s dark side. This is the 1st artistic video by Larc en Ciel. When I first saw the video I was awed because it’s so artistic. It’s an unusual kind of art…a bit dark but not in a sadistic way. You can easily spot fragments of arts all through the video.
No. 2 is Seventh Heaven
Seventh Heaven is the second most artistic video by Laruku. It thickly showed modern art, or we can also say it as contemporary art. They use bright color and all the background dancers are showing the bizarreness of contemporary art. When I first listen to the song, I wasn’t really into it, it’s a bit unusual for larc’s song…but after seeing its PV, I like it better than before.
No. 1 is Jyojoshi
This is the best Laruku’s PV I have ever seen!!! At a glimpse people might mistaken this PV for porn video…BUT do not look at it at a glimpse!! This PV is a work of art. Although there are a lot of semi-naked people in the video but they are there to pose like old paintings or old statues in ancient Greek. The way it shifted from frame to frame is also interesting to see. I love it so much…so beautiful.
Larc en Ciel had made 36 PVs (their new video Bless will make it 37)…this 36 PVs is without mentioning their old videos that only few people had seen (Dune, As if in a Dream, and Shutting From the Sky) and I can assure you that there are more than 5 great videos…Those 5 are considered to their greatest.
Other videos that can be considered as great video are Flower, Shinsoku, Pieces, New World, My Heart Draws a Dream, I wish (Punk en Ciel), and Shine.
It’s so hard to choice the best song from all Laruku’s songs because I love them all…but finding the best video is very easy 🙂
