My Thoughts on Gesu no Kiwami Otome’s “Romance ga Arimaru” Music Video

Gesu no Kiwami Otome returns with a new song “Romance ga Arimaru,” which I would roughly translate it to “Romance is a Luxury.” (This is not the exact translation of the title. I kind of tweaked it based on the song lyrics & so it would sound better as a title in English.)

Gesu always comes up with such aesthetically interesting music videos to watch. The video is filmed in black & white and starts off with Enon & Chan Mari playing the keyboard before repeatedly showing shots of Enon sitting on a sofa chair and zooming out to reveal furniture that is later replaced by the other members. There are a lot of different ideas that they play on throughout the video, but I’ll just highlight my favorites.

I am not entirely sure how this music video was filmed whether it was done with a camera that panned the round stage or a 360 stop motion camera… or both. I really enjoyed how the video featured both motion (the group playing their instruments) and still images (the members just holding a pose & seeing it in diff angles) on the seemingly rotating stage. I thought it was great how the side of the swept across the screen, turning it to black & lit up to focus on Enon when he sang the bridge. It was a great visual transition that reflected the song’s change as well. They used the same technique too when the bridge went back into the chorus again too.

You can always count on Gesu no Kiwami Otome to release great music with an equally engaging music video.
