I like watching videos from Gackt, GLAY, L'Arc~en~Ciel, and Ken Hirai. If I had to pick a favorite from each, I would probably say:
Gackt - Kimi ga Oikaketa Yume or Miz'erable
GLAY - Freeze My Love or Mermaid
L'Arc~en~Ciel - Niji or STAY AWAY
Ken Hirai - KISS OF LIFE or Why
All of them have put out many amazing videos and will continue to do so for quite a while. That previous statement was intended to help squash rumors. GLAY and L'Arc~en~Ciel will both be recording new material for a while. So they are not disbanding. Obviously, this means they will have more videos for us to watch and fall in love with.
Wow! That's a touchy subject because I like so many artists and then again even if it's not the artist I like, sometimes there videos are so cool. Well, one thing for sure is that I really love Laruku alot! So I would have to say that my fave PV from them is...Kaze ni Kienaide because it's so artsy and pretty. I even made a mini replica of the blue room they are in. Oh and Shiina Ringo's "Honnou" (I hope that's right ) is really awesome. Umm...and so is Utada Hikaru's "Sakura Drops."
As far as have copying anybody's stuff.... I get my friends together and we perform Morning Musume's "Love Machine" and "Koi no Dance Site" just because it's so fun~ !!
I've never even seen some Gackt's or Ayumi's videos cuz. I don't have a channel that shows them. Or I don't have DSL or a Cable connection that'll make my downloading faster. So I haven't watched any of their videos, but I still enjoy listening to their music. But I do look at pictures of the music videos.
Gackt videos are always entertaining... I also love Ayumi Hamasaki videos and, even though it's a little dated, Malice Mizer really put out some good ones, some of my all-time favorites, even! I loved Beast of Blood, and Illuminata Live... drool...
My favs that i have seen are:
X Japan's Rusty Nail, Forever Love, Endless Rain
Gackt's Vanillia, Kimi ga Oikaketa Yume, Mizerable
Malice Mizer's Garendia, Beast of Blood
but Malice Mizer's Illuminata video was horrid.
