My first impression of this video was that this person is looking back on scenes or memories through tearful eyes. Regardless of how the blurring interprets literally, the more I watch it the more I’ve started to feel it. Inori is not so much about what was lost, but what was gained. So yes, the world is blurring, but the memories themselves are transforming from hurtful to hopeful by finding the beauty within the pain. It’s a simple matter of changing where your focus is and where your camera’s eye is trained.
It’s a beautiful video, if a little dull, but whenever I feel a yawn coming on, Sakurai’s unrivaled passion brings me back. I love that this band can have such a big, bold artistic concept in their video. They truly are a dying breed.
