Today's PV is Hey! Say! JUMP's Mayonaka no Shadow Boy PV. This song was the theme song of the drama series Scrap Teacher that starred Yamada Ryosuke, Nakajima Yuto, Chinen Yuri and Arioka Daiki and was the origin of the Junior group B.I.Shadow as the three original members of the group, Nakajima Kento, Kikuchi Fuma and Takahata Misaki were all regular cast members in the drama as well.
This PV is the start of HSJ's move towards a more mature sound but without straying too far from what they had already released on their previous singles.
I remember when the PV came out and how it was stressed that this was the first PV HSJ got to do that had some kind of story line in it. And while it is not much of one it was a nice change of pace. We pretty much start the PV with the boys on the run and taking a break in a hotel.
|Escape from the pedos.|
|Because Arioka knows everyone loves a sharp dressed man.|
|Still need to work on that in sync thing.|
|It's not nice to point Yabu.|
|Laying in bed, looking at Inoo...|
|Watching for the pedos.|
|The last we see of his adorable boy phase in a PV.|
|Yabu found something suspiciously wet on his bed.|
|Already making his fan girls swoon.|
|"Hurry! He escaped through the closed window!"|
It is not a bad PV though I do not think it is one of their more memorable ones. Out of their singles from their first album this PV is the one I remember the least about, partly because Hitomi no Screen was very much in the same tone as this was and had more compelling cinematography with it than this which makes me remember it more.
Probably the most disheartening think about this PV is the reminder that is would take over a year before we got their next single and PV. I would really love to know what Johnny's was thinking when they did that.
