This is a full music track for the song Days featured in the show Mekakucity Actors. The track itself is very enjoyable to listen to by itself. This song is a far darker song than the song Daze which as well has its own music video. Unlike Daze, Days music video features very little movement and color.
Although this lack of color should be an issue it instead adds to the darker more emotional atmosphere set by the song. The lack of movement should help create a more lonely and abandoned setting, but instead hinders it as we are forced to assume this rather than
see it for our-self. This is not helped when the song shifts into a happier more upbeat tone and the animation on screen hardly changes as all. This could have been executed with adding color to the bleak world and/or adding movement as the characters are starting to become full of life again.
This was a missed opportunity compared to the other music video Daze that made use of still images and set them in motion with fast pans and quick still frame changes. Even though Daze suffered from the same issues Days did it was still able to execute far better maybe due to being shorter and thus being able to have all of its animations within the four minutes compared to Days almost six. .
