    So I closed my eyes for 10 hours after Ogiyuka told me to... still no Ogiyuka or NGT costume :confused:

    A recording of the talk segment following the screening of the MV, from the special Showroom stream held yesterday for its premiere. In case someone missed it and wanted to watch it in full, or in case you didn't know about it in the first place, whichever the case, here it is:

    Thoughts and impressions after watching the finished music video for the first time, but also some anecdotes and other behind-the-scenes stories related to the making of the video and their stay in Vladivostok.
    The members taking part in the show were Katomina, Gatanee, Ogiyuka, and Noepii but, as to be expected, it was the last one (and Ogiyuka of course) who eventually took up much of the talking in the end. Also, needless to say, director Hasei Kouki was also present at the event.
    Gotta love the lively and friendly atmosphere it projected from start to finish.

    The first part started with reading some of the live comments that viewers wrote as the MV was playing (some commented about the beauty of the scenery, others about it giving it goosebumps, or being moved to tears, and so on...), and then continued with the members speaking about their own impressions about the MV. Katomina called it "in one word, emotional" and mentione how the director spoke with the members to understand each of their personality before proceeding with the shootings. Meanwhile, Ogiyuka comment focused more on it having a feeling like a foreign movie to it, starting with the titles in a foreign language, that it belies the fact it's actually an idol MV.

    It's also intriguing to learn that the touches we see in the finished work were in part also the result of improvisations in the plans (in the end, on-site shootings actually lasted only one day and a half according to news articles) as well as a matter of chance.
    A little nugget of knowledge: the director said that in the original script, instead of the dad role, there was supposed to be a mom role, but due to difficulty with finding suitable candidates in such a short time (they had found just one in fact), they chose to change it to the protagonist's father, for which they had already come across the right person. Also, the man is supposedly the leader/manager of a circus troupe in real life, as such all the association with animals you see in the video is not random at all. The fact both him and Arina had no previous acting experience also surprised the members. Since they pointed out Ogiyuka was the one who was involved more closely with Arina, she expressed praise for having what Ogiyuka sees as an innate actress talent and for the emotional intensity coming from her eyes -- a gaze that made Ogiyuka feel overwhelmed for how pretty it was, she states.
    On a minor note, while discussing how they helped create the atmosphere of the video with the contribution of only the people they met with casually while at the place, the director brough up in particular the episode of the extra who in the final video is seen playing the bells with a hammer (he stands out at what is a pretty well-timed part of the video, you can't miss it). Hasei-san recalls how he discovered him almost by chance, while he was already in the midst of filming, on a moment when he was facing backwards and eventually convinced him to join the cast. The director also pointed out how the guy was actually a traveling performer and, as if to underline the fortuitousness of the encounter, when the crew was back to the airport they later met him again while on his way to the next destination.
    Interestingly, you can conclude that, in a way, all the people in the cast of this MV are essentially "playing as themselves", except within a fictional setting.

    There were also questions for the members near the end. One of the questions from the host was what foreign destination they'd want to go to next time. Noe stated she'd answer seriously ...but then replied with "the Kingdom of Mali", which had me doubting she intended to go with a serious answer at all. When she explained it was somewhere close to Egypt, Ogiyuka agreed that she'd like to travel to some African location and, at the direct suggestion of Hasei-san, it ended with Noe begging the Sony representatives in the room, screaming at the top of her lungs and later adding "even if just for private purposes". Ogiyuka then suggested to go with something with more of a surprise factor, and Noepii was at it again promptly suggesting "Vatican City" not without a proud expression on her face (later as the talk went on they changed it to Rome, where she'd love to "eat ice cream while riding a bike", but oh well...). (´∀`;)

    Oh and then, I guess this deserves a special treatment: answering to the question of what was something curious that happened to members during their time over there, it was of course Noe who immediately rushed in with an episode from their hotel stay. I love just how long she went on retelling about it. Always count on Noe to animate the party.

    Lyrics ENG:
    Becoming full of emotion
    throbbing with each breath you take
    From the moment you started loving people
    Living became wonderful

    Right, you want to do something for someone else's sake
    Right now, honestly (right now, honestly)
    thinking that is love's bond

    People of the world
    Sing together
    All of your wishes, put them into this song
    If we are hand in hand
    We will understand each other
    Everyone let's find happiness together

    Being hit by rains of sadness
    When tears overflow, you remember
    By your side, someone is watching over you
    You're never alone, no matter the time

    Let's try and trust people more
    Such a world
    Is not something to give up on like that

    People of the world
    Are you singing?
    Even if you get the words wrong it's OK
    With a load voice
    Keep on singing
    Surely our futures shall become one

    People of the world
    Sing together
    All of your wishes, put them into this song
    If we are hand in hand
    We will understand each other
    Everyone let's find happiness together

    Everyone let's find happiness together

    Caught this one during Katomina's Showroom from yesterday.
    Well, looks like there was room for even further improvement, if only it hadn't been for circumstances beyond anyone's control (huh...).



    It should be said, one thing I love after a MV gets revealed, is that the members can talk freely about their experiences with filming and usually bring up all sorts of inside stories like this afterwards.

    Watching the theatre and lives, NGT48 members are given a bit free-er hand to freestyle and put their interpretation to certain parts of the choreography.

    Reading youtube comments, you will find some people find it really chaotic and will say that NGT48 should get more training and compare to other SGs tight ship performance.

    One of the craziest girls in NGT. Close friend of Ogiyuka, Moeka, Mofuchan and more. Her final rank was not very high but she was Kani7 (a pun: Kani = Crab = her nickname) in prelim.

    Katomina's Drawing = A dream of regular fans = A nightmare to casual/non-fans lol

    Management just doesn't realise they have the next Picasso in their group. Even better than Picasso. Hmph. Actually! Van Gogh wasn't liked too much either, and look now! Just you all wait, her paintings will be hanging everywhere someday. It won't be "ah, is that an authentic Andy Warhol?" no no, it will be "WOW! You own a real deal Kato Minami painting? That's amazing!".

    They did. It's the fans that are kinda hot and cold with her. She was an early push from NGT. Hopefully she ranks higher next year and centers NGT next single
