Since not everyone could understand the true meaning of this song and the MV. I just decided to make a quick review of this. The story, the music that changed my view to the anime industry.
My review might contains a few "MINOR" SPOILERS for GC and Psychopass fans. You should probably, no.. you MUST complete them first before watching and reading this if you're planning to watch.
*Thoughts and explanations:
(please read and recall carefully)
EGOIST is the band, exists both in real life and in the anime Guilty Crown (GC) which they had their first performance on. And Inori, the main female character of the show, basically
became their symbol and all their songs magically related to Inori's story. The story of this MV is undoubtedly based on the 2 animes : Psycho Pass (the song is the ED of this anime) and the original GC.
You can say, there are 2 characters on this video : the girl with the flower on her head who I'd call the master, and the teddy bear ( the girl that looks like Inori). Destiny (fate) somehow makes the master guilty and fallen. They become separated.
But her teddy bear still loves her no matter what, since she took care of it nicely in the past. This is when the story became alike. With its true intense love and forgiveness, with the sincere hope to make its beloved master be able to rest peacefully on the heaven, the teddy bear reaches out for her, to feel her one last time, and sacrifices itself...
"There can be no true despair without hope." _Bane
The teddy bear is actually broken into pieces sending the last piece of its (the pink butterfly) with the master (blue ones) to the heaven, letting it down there forever (the hell where people are guilty). I can tell since there is "I'll bear all your sins" in the lyrics.
The scene, or i'd say that "pink butterfly" reminds me of Inori's story right away. In the ending of GC series, right after Inori sacrifices herself for Shu Ouma and the scene where Shu was listening to her music, there was a brief moment of them where they were actually cuddling each other, before GC finally ends.
Is it the "last part" of Inori just like the teddy bear's? I can guarantee, "the red string of fate" (the thing that appears many times during the show), the thing that Inori gives Shu at the end, is related to the "pink butterfly" in this MV. They all have the same meaning, the last parts that are still living inside the ones they love.
I was shocked after I realized that, the way they built up such stories related and connected deeply to one another really made me feel amazed.
*Music and art
"You'll never walk alone
I'll go with you
I'll bear all your sins
No matter what they are
A pathless path
I will stay with you
Hold me with
With all your heart
We can't wish for
You and I..."
You could say the lyrics is likely made for the Psychopass series. However, you'd have to admit that the MV is made perfectly based on GC. As I said it's what made the band and seriously impacted them. The teddy's figure and costume, or some buildings drawn up are actually saying that for me.
Back to the main points, my opinions:
The scenes look strangely attractive, gorgeous and somehow cute, the atmosphere was breathtaking, the lyrics was touching; It was splendid. The song inspired me and kept my chin up everyday. There's no need to talk much about it. I appreciate it, from the bottom of my heart.
Besides, "All Alone With You" isn't the only amazing song from EGOIST.
I must say, when I started to watch GC, right after i clicked the play button for the first episode, the real thing that immediately impressed me a lot was the starting song named "Euterpe" performed by EGOIST. It sounded just wonderful.
And somehow naturally I've fallen in love with all of their songs, with Chelly's unique and hoarse singing voice (no wonder she was chosen from 2000 participants in the competition supercell held in 2011 and have become famous so far) and the way ryo senpai composed them flawlessly in many different types of music, with many different kinds of difficulties to satisfy everyone with every tastes.
They recently worked with Aimer and composer Hiroyuki Sawano to make an anime OST, which impressed me so much, for "Kabaneri of the iron fortress".
And they are now working on "Fate/Apocrypha" project.
I expect to see it soon.
This is my first review on this website.
English is not my first language.
"All Alone With You" is the fourth single by the music group EGOIST and is used as the second ending theme song of Psycho-Pass. For those who doesn't know, EGOIST is a Japanese pop music duo consisting of songwriter Ryo of Supercell and vocalist Chelly. It had also composed song themes for Guilty Crown and Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress.
Returning to All Alone With You: The song is very good, the video has a beautiful art and is very touching and, if you take a deep look at the video, you will notice
a plot behind it too. If you're searching for something short and amazing, take a look at it. Also, if you enjoy it, take a look at EGOIST's other works too.
Duly note: I haven´t seen Psycho-Pass (this song is the theme song of Psycho-Pass), so this is from an outsider perspective.
This is an AMV with the song "all alone with you" made by Egoist.
Besides the song being quite good (or so it is for my taste) the visual, the video itself was pretty damn good too! ^^
At first there does not seem to be a plot but when you look closely you can see that there is :3 A beautiful symbolic story with lots of hidden details. Interesting use of visuals in a artistic way, overall very lovely ^^
So yeah this is something for
egoist fans or just people who like the anime style music and want pretty visuals with a story to it ^^
