Keyakizaka46 have released their 6th single's "Glass wo ware!" common c/w song "Mou Mori e Kaerou ka?" music video. Some fans may find the video is too dark, however, why? what is the song talking about actually.


Please note the title Mou Mori e Kaerou ka? (Back to Forest?) has a question mark, on the other hand, the lead track "Glass wo ware!" (Break the glass!) has a exclamation mark. As my personal opinion, two songs' title are not separate but relative: The connection implies the idol group are at the the point with no return, if they do not cross it, should they have to back to the forest (their origin, tree is the Symbol of Keyakizaka46).

In the music video, it talks two aspects of value wills: one was inevitable exceedance of traditional idol; the other was to yield to ANTI's criticism, and the video has lot of scene the group's absolute CENTER Hirate Yurina (stand for the group) is facing lot of criticism which the group do not expect, so should they go on or go back to forest?

The group do not want to be a factory-produced faceless idols, those scene tells a cruel truth: because they will be abandoned dolls sooner or later.

Though Hirate Yurina (Keyakizaka46) has been trying to accept the criticisms and take them easy, or even tried to eliminate them, but all these method just do not work, and more worse, they are too tired to deal with or go on their dream and just want to go back to forest, however, looking back, they find the forest is just an utopia which does not exist.  

At last, Keyakizaka46 members escape from the factory, on the other hand, Hirate Yurina steps into the forest alone.

    Interesting theory. Imo Mou Mori e Kaerou ka is a prequel of Hiraishin, maybe they're all connected.
    I've seen a lot of Kpop group talking about MVs theory too, and I truly enjoy this kind of discussion. So far the theory that I like the most is the 10nen Go no Sakura - Otona no Ressha.

    Keyakizaka46 has to live with a "crazy psychopathic emo" image, Techi's got a new "solo" and lastly, No Techi, No Keyakizaka46.

    - NAVERJP Blabbers, complains and crazy Japanese comments from Matome Forums.
