Ok! I was alright with all of their stories. It was cool and creative. Yet, when Yuko's story played out, I couldn't help but cry so much. I'm actually crying just thinking about it. It was so sad and a huge emotional roller coaster. Atsuko made a strong point when she said something like, "All I can do is comfort her by touching/rubbing her back. There's nothing I can really do". I felt that moment played so well to the "sympathy" card. There's that saying, you can't fully understand someone, unless you walk a mile in their shoes.
As someone who is living a hard life, I understand that we all have to just go with the flow. There is only so much we can do to change it. Never stop trying of course. I wouldn't be a very good activist now.
Not only was the song amazing, but it was that MV that captured everything (for me). I totally recommend you all to try finding the full Music Video on Google. You have to watch it. Or wait till AKB48 uploads it (hopefully). You have to see it!
Another part of the MV was about a band coming together. At the end they were called, "Baby Blossom". They performed at their graduation together. They obviously performed, "Give Me Five".
I wonder if the whole point of the MV was to just get Japan to understand depression, harassment, and hardship of everyday humans. Sure, their stories aren't the average people in Japan, but they were examples. Here's a philosophical question for you. "Is life real? Or just an illusion" Ponder that for awhile. See what you come up with.
That term, "fake", applies to everyone. No one is real because then we would have to be honest about everything. Coming everyday to school with a smile on your face is a burden sometimes.
Life is hard. I know, cheesy, but it's true. Life moves on as well. Don't think because something bad happened to you that life has to end. Try to make others happy. We do live in a world were our selfishness really takes over our common sense.
I will leave this post with another question (if you don't mind).
What is the meaning of life?
