Mayu's Eyes

I don't know what this song is called except in Japanese characters, nor do I have English words for it, but it is quite captivating – especially if one also watches Mayu's eyes closely. That is easy as there are several lengthy close-up shots of her face. Note too the pulsing hat, which is a new one on me.

It was all written and produced by one 'Konig', including playing the Fender Stratocaster, as stated the credits at the end (much of it in English). The motion makes a change from the norm as the performer really just stands on the spot rather than the usual dancing around we get in these productions.

Also the camerawork isn't the often dizzying perpetual moving and switching style, and I for one generally prefer this, though I can understand why it is done for other works. Overall it's a good outing for Mayu, whose voice seems to suit the mood of this song – whatever it is...
