Ayumi Hamasaki Connected music video

So I was at my friends house a few days ago, just playing around with her computer and stumbled across a music video she downloaded.

It was the music video for Connected by Ayu, and man did it look so good. With the futuristic setting with the cool anime style characters, and that bike ^^

Just wondering has anybody else seen it?

Yeah, I have. I dled it. The style of the anime reminds me of something but I can't remember what it is lol. Alittle like Lain maybe crossed with like Miyazaki?

I like when the buildings are popping up out of the ground. It looks damned cool. Or when buddy comes buy on the bike when she head dives off the building. I think that is supposed to be her and her boyfriend Tomoya Nagase from Tokio.

The video "Real Me" from her new album is a real trip. It's great.

It's good. Its really futuristic. It's not anime, but its really vivid and colorful and not to mention the song rocks. She looks really cool in this vid and she actually dances. That is something she never does lol. I love the video, I have shown it to all of my friends. They don't listen to Japanese music but they like the song and the video.

Also, the video for M (Above and Beyond Mix) is great. Its all computer graphics.

There are two M videos. One for the normal version and one for the Trance one. I have both. If you need anything I can send them to you.

Yup. Starts out like that. The dancing cyborg factory. I wonder what message they are trying to send with that one, or none at all lol. Its a great video, but if you do have a hard time getting anything I will surely help you out, because I am a very generous person lol.

Hopefully you will like the song, you should dl that as well, I love that song. (^_^)

Woo another very cool music video.

I love how Ayu looks when she is behind the control panel

Those pale white andriods (?) behind the window were freaky.

Ohh tell me more good Ayu music videos to download please ^^

Yeah her eyes (like her iris's) are very dark, she reminds me of a cat!

She looks really cool in that vid.

Well there is M (Above and Beyond) I have it, if you want the good version its like 200 megs, I have it. You might not be able to find it.

The thing about her videos is, some of them are really great, others are just kinda, you know, mediocre. I like the video to M (orignal version) because I find the imagery in the video to be very beautiful and I really like the song.

Kanariya is a pretty good video too, she is all sparkly and stuff.
Some of her commercials are pretty trippy as well.

The video to Surreal is pretty interesting. I watched it like over and over and over again, but there wasn't anything amazing about it. It was just really nice. How she was dressed as the cat in her dream was pretty cool, she finds herself in her own dream. It's kinda cool.

But I think you are looking for stuff that is visually impressive right? Utada Hikaru has two videos that just blow my mind. One if for my favorite song of all time. It's called Travelling. It's such a great song and the video suits it well. I like both Utada and Ayumi. Utada has alot of charm to her though.

I've seen the clips, own her recent album, "I am..." and now on the look out to get my hands on her current one, "Rainbow"

I lurve her songs. They add meaning and character...even though it has the Avex Trax pop signature added into it. But I don't give a crap about it...

I've got her latest album "Rainbow". It's not too bad, I mainly got it because I love 'Hanabi' and 'Voyage'. The 'Real Me' is a really good, catchy song. She even dances in the PV. Very surprised, since Ayu couldn't dance even if her life depended on it. But good to see she's been practicing and improving. An interesting point to note is also with her lyric-writing - she's started to include more English words and phrases in her songs.

Anyway, it's worth checking out the "Voyage" PV clip, very interesting (and nice song too).
