Literal visual eye candy. Every second is a blast to watch, and every beat of the song is entrancing and sparkling (much like the titular character Ai Hoshino). A must-watch for Yoasobi fans, AMV [Animated Music Video] fans, and "Oshi no Ko fans"! There's something for everybody in this music video, and the 23+ million views on YouTube (as of April 20th, 2023) are much deserved. I can't wait to see what else both Yoasobi and "Oshi no Ko" have in store for the anime and music worlds!

The flashiness was the only aspect of the music video that may be off-putting to some viewers.

Mixed Feelings
It was mid, But also as with everything its subjective.

I went into this expecting a good anime op, and for the the visuals is really did a great job meeting that. Though i don't really think it differ much from other yoasobi tracks it doesn't really matter. In the end the animations, visuals and pacing is good.

The same could not be said for the song itself though. The writing, in my opinion is fine. The lyric has multiple reference to the anime story, mentioning the character names, calling out how they act according to anime n stuff. Overall this fits pretty well with the visuals.
However ...

I have watched the MV "Idol" and I must say, the animation is incredibly generic and uninspired. The movements of the characters lack creativity and the overall visuals do not stand out at all. I have seen better animation from underground authors with no real budget.

As for the music, I won't comment much on it as it sounds incredibly generic and lacks any real originality. The overall production is a complete goyslop, and I cannot say that I am impressed by it at all. It's unfortunate to see such a lack of creativity and originality in the anime industry these days.

Regarding YAOISOBI, I must say ...
