[Updated]Music video for SKE48 15th single “Bukiyou Taiyou”

27 Jul

The full music video for SKE48 15th single “Bukiyou Taiyou” has just been released. This song is currently on endless replay for me as I love the storyline in the lyrics! It talks about a guy’s long-time crush on his friend and how he’s unable to pluck up his courage to confess. The MV producer did not use the lyrics to film his MV, but it seems like Jurina/Rena/Akarin each have their own story to tell.

Jurina kicks off the MV by telling her senpai that she hates him. She then runs off to the school’s rooftop with a regretful look on her face.

Rena stands alone where the Matsuri is supposed to take place. In Japanese culture, the Matsuri is an iconic spot where friends and lovers gather to have fun. It is also a place where confessions take place and relationships blossom. However, Rena looks forlorn as rain has forced organizers to cancel the event.

Akarin also waits alone at the seaside for something/someone as dark clouds gather.

Eventually, it turns out that Jurina is the only one with an ending to her love story. Towards the end, she brightens up when the Sun returned and plucks up her courage to shout “Senpai! I like you!”, unaware that Senpai is approaching from behind.

My thoughts on the MV? There was a snippet of Shoujo drama which i liked, but the producer should have gone all out with the acting. Rena’s such a good actress and it seems like a waste of talent to just let her stand there and smile. Nevertheless, i liked the close-up shots where JRA were playing with sparklers. They looked so pretty!

Meanwhile, a translation of the lyrics below:

The heat from the roads, is heating up the whole street.
Everyone is in slow motion, you approach slowly on your bike.

The flowers on your dress are dancing in the wind.
I felt my heart squeeze.
What will happen between us?

I like you. I’ve known it for too long.

‘I want to go to the beach’
That’s what you said..
But as friends, what can we do at the beach?

As usual, i can’t meet you in the eyes.
I talked about anything like the sneakers i wanted.
The moment when the bus passed by you,
I protected you unconsciously.

I am the clumsy sun.
I can only shine by your side without saying anything.
I am the pessimistic sun
Becoming impatient in this season of love, i can only feel the burning heat.

I like you, but i like you too much(I can’t meet you in the eyes)
I can’t get closer to you above this (The skies will always continue to be blue wherever we are)

We sat by the edge of the water, ate shaved ice and talked about the pain in our teeth and heads.
With the sea breeze blowing, we were able to watch the waves.
This is already good enough, because I am right next to you.
You saw through my cowardliness, and started to pout.

I am the clumsy sun.
Ever since we met, i haven’t been able to make a move despite my feelings for you.
I am the cowardly sun
When we get closer, i can’t do anything.

I like you actually, but..(This distance between us is so awkward)
I like you actually, I really like you (This relationship is the youthful summer love)

I am the clumsy sun.
I can only shine by your side without saying anything.
I am the pessimistic sun
Becoming impatient in this season of love, i can only feel the burning heat.

I like you, but i like you too much(I can’t meet you in the eyes)
I can’t get closer to you above this (The skies will always continue to be blue wherever we are)
