EDIT: LOLZ at those men who cried...i wonder what this song means...im guessing Arigatou for the parents..??? and those people in the video never got the chance to thank their parents/love ones. Or at some point in their lives they have walked the wrong path.

Ya...it`s pretty weird to see those men crying...i wonder what makes them cry when they listen to that song...from my observation, they started to cry/feeling sad when kiyoe`s sang this verse :

"arigatou ttetsutae takute anata wo mitsu meru kedo
tsunagareta migite ga massuguna omoi wo
buki youni tsutaeteiru

itsumademo tada itsumademo anata to waratte takara
shinji tako no michi wo tashikamete iku noni
ima yukkuri to aruite ikou"

"I look at you to tell you thank you
Connected by straight right hand feel
Reported that the clumsy

Though I check this course that I believed forever because I only laughed with you forever, I will walk slowly now
"

The waiter started to feel sad when kiyoe`s sing that verse then follow with the old man and then the waitress....

The lyrics are to aesthetic and it`s hard for me to understand the real meaning of this song...

It looks like they are a lounge act from the 70's or playing in a theme bar copying that time.

Didn't anyone else think that Mizuno was dressed cool? He looks like someone from the 1940s.

Kiyoe's dress is plain, but she's wearing white go-go boots! I love women wearing boots.

I'm quite disappointed about there's only one song in the single (other than the instrumental version), and the PV...

According to the Brazilian blog JStation, Ikimono Gakari are going to perform in Music Station next week, which means we'll probably be watching the first Arigatou live performance. ^^

Just found some interesting videos on YouTube. It seems they were interviewed for TV and that interview shows scenes of a new Arigatou live performance and a new concert were we get to see Kiyoe with a bit of her "boyish" look back. ^^




EDIT:

The band Ikimono Gakari will have a 3D music video for their newest song, titled “Arigatou.” In addition, it will be Japan’s first 3D music video to be publicly shown in movie theaters. For just one week starting on May 8, audiences watching the 3D movie “Alice in Wonderland” or “Clash of the Titans” will get to see the 2-minute video before the start of the film. The screenings will be limited to three theaters: Wald 9 in Shinjuku, Burg 13 in Yokohama, and Burg 7 in Umeda, Osaka. Ikimono Gakari is actually the second Japanese artist to do a 3D music video, as UVERworld also created one for their song “GOLD.” However, UVERworld’s video was limited to a private screening, with tickets given out by lottery to fans who purchased the band’s new album. “Arigatou” is currently being used as the theme song for the NHK drama series “Gegege no Nyoubou.” It is being released as a single on May 5.

I dunno if i'm the last person who knew this, but my question about the Arigatou cover was just clarified after I saw violet_ingrid's FB page, then I started to research a bit.

Original post by nabinalami on fb:
I heard from NHK, "Gegege no Nyobou" is about the wife of Nyobou (if im not mistaken) she is very loyal forever with her husband until old. I think the grandpa and grandma on Arigatou cover is them.

Dramawiki:

The 82nd NHK Asadora is Gegege no Nyobo. The story is based on a 2008 autobiography by Mura Nunoe, the wife of Gegege no Kitaro mangaka Mizuki Shigeru. The story revolves around the life of the married couple, told from the perspective of Mura.

----------------------------------------

Just to give additional clarification

- Nyoubo means wife thus "Gegege no Nyobo" means "Spooky Wife"
- This is the old man from the cover: (Shigeru Mizuki)

Arigato to all about the clarification, I thought the cover had more to it than it looked. Razz
