Rediscovering the Past: Daihakken and CS Channel by Tokyo Jihen
Back in the days when Columbus discovered the Americas, the Europeans did created a new land of hope and glory by “purging the legacy of the past.”
This is pretty much goes hand in hand with the term “discovery” — it somehow has the connotation that the past was no good or at least not good enough — and that’s why with a discovery, there comes a new hope that might change the world for the better.
Not the case with Tokyo Jihen’s latest album Daihakken, and their video collection, CS Channel. Especially when viewed in conjunction with the four officially released promotional videos (PVs) so far.
Let’s see if what I see is what you see too:
First, Fly Me to Heaven, literally A Girl is Anyone (女の子は誰でも), aka. Onna no Ko wa Daredemo.
Next, Brand New Civilization (新しい文明開化) [MV], aka. Atarashii Bunmeikaika.
