They should add more color to PV. Full PV will not bring anything special.

I'm grateful she is active now...

but c'mon AVEX! don't be so cheap to her...

this is just behind the cover shoot...just really cheap, the camera movement give me headache...

if they remove that backdrop...it would be so much better. that backdrop thing can't be treated as a fabric...no movement at all...

I kind of picture the end of the PV turning from monochrome to full colour and maybe we'll see bub's hand holding her finger or his feet? I figure since she kept him hidden for this long that she will probably only drop small hints.

I liked the preview but I don't know if it's something I'll come back to watch deliberately. It'll be nice to play randomly from a playlist though. When the camera allowed it, she looked gorgeous.

Seems like the video will stay in black and white, based on the little snippet Ayu uploaded on her instagram story. Unless it transitions to colour for a pretty small amount of time towards the very end.

They uploaded it on twitter, too!

The "monochrome simple world view" from the main description for it seems to imply it'd stay the same but I do wonder if there's something special at the end or more peeks of her son's things like shoes, lol.

Beloved was in colour for the last minute and a half. With Ohia No Ki there's less than a minute left. Of course, beloved is longer but I kinda doubt Ohia no Ki will end in colour. Happy to be proven wrong, though.

Preety sure we will see a beautiful Ohia tree behind the curtain at the end of the MV looking forward to see this beautiful heritage for her boy. Dispite the critics, we have to remember that video is special for Ayu and is more a message for her son.

I thought it might have been the case, but looking at it on my PC with full screen mode, no... she seems to be holding the fabric XD
I'd have prefered if that screen wasn't behind her and a more stable camera work, but overall it was an ok MV

Ayu knows she’s wrong for not putting the baby in this video. That’s the only reason I watched it!!! ������

She's stunning, really pretty [end of possible comments about the full video].

It's a glorified beauty shoot that moms usually do, but without the baby lol Despite of that, it's not bad, just OK.

The video really isn’t much more than a beauty shoot, but I still love it. I’m glad it stayed simple without any flashiness.

Regardless my previous harsh comment (damn I can get bitter when I feel sick) it is a good PV and the beauty poses are pretty. But still I think the camera is too shaky and blurry.
... also I still stand my ground about what I said about her lipsync, however I want to take back the harsh tone.
I wish there was more variation in the PV, that's what I meant earlier when I couldn't believe it was from the same director as GREEN, Sparkle or Mirrorcle World. I understand there is not a lot possible due the pandemic, but... meh.
Kudo's for Ayu for doing what she loves and creating this, all for her son.

It's a pretty PV, they could've done more with the green scenery instead of only the sheet, but hey it's nice. Still don't care for the song, but I don't want children so I can't relate to the lyrics at all lol.

I'm generally just happy with the sudden and pleasantly surprising influx of new content she's producing so far. I love how sweet and meaningful オヒアの木 and I have high hopes for Dreamed a Dream to be the Sparkle-like banger it so deserves to be

that said, this new PV does leave a lot to be desired I do appreciate the simplicity she's going for, but the execution is disappointing—and this very much has to do with the director, whose overall style I really dislike. from what I've observed so far, his direction has a knack of making otherwise-beautiful things look cheap I like the slo-mo and the B&W, but, as others have pointed out, the shaky camera seems to speak more to amateurism than directional style to me.

oh and I also thought she's holding her baby in the two wide shots we get in the video, but that might just be the fabric of her gown

I hope Dreamed a Dream gets a (more superior) PV

I think that the mv would have worked better without all those shaky and blurry scenes. Maybe they wanted to bring a warm vibe to match the song, but I don't think that it looks very good. Still, as someone else said, it's nice to have some visual to the track even if I don't really care for either right now lol.
So excited for Dreamed a dream!!
