It's so pretty and fits the song so well! I love the way she looks and the vibes its giving - makes me feel really warm and cozy. I am looking forward to seeing the full version.

The staff also addressed being late in the tweet, lol.

It looks so sweet and heartfelt! At least so far, it seems very tastefully done.

I often wonder how and why she became so bad at lip syncing over the years. Like she genuinely over exaggerates every mouth movement to the point where it’s distracting and when I watch this video that’s literally all I see

I don't think her face is all that different here, but the hair is very different and even the texture of it.

Based on the director...well, I don't think his team edits well, and that's why she looks bad lining up her words in his videos.

And she looks about the same she has for the past year or so. Aging, motherhood, makeup... I'm going through it all myself, it does change you.

I am enjoying the PV so far! I do have a soft spot for the song in general. I wonder if it'll change into color as it progresses (like "beloved"), I am very curious where the PV will head.

This is the best shot of the PV so far. Stunning.

Hair/makeup team is all different from her usual staff. Stylist and costume design have done stuff for her before though! Kei Ito is normally her stylist.

Man this is... not good. Won't help me enjoy this song more.
The camera work is terrible as well as the editing. Don't get the set up either with that cheap white backdrop in the middle of the garden.
Just glad to see ayu in the open air and not in a studio for once.

Maybe the rest of the PV will surprise me or will be different but not counting on that.

I think they just wanted to keep it as raw and simple as possible, but still make it look like they made an effort. A lot of artists are ditching studio and big production right now, due to all the mess with the pandemic, so no wonder she's doing this, too. It sort of makes me think of Britney's "Someday".

I hope so!!! Not because I feel one way or the other about her revealing the baby, but because I LOVE baby pics / videos <3
