Hamidashi Paradise is a memorable music video for me in more ways than its memorable choose-your-own adventure style; it was my first real exposure to You’ll Melt More! aside from them occasionally sprouting up in my music feed and making me go “well, that was nice!”.
While groundbreaking at the time, and still is one of the most interesting idol MVs out there, sometimes the method of “click x arrow for this option” can get frustrating, as I had to restart the music video many times just because I accidentally pulled the window away and getting lost. No big deal though, it was fun to go through all the options again. Surprisingly, going by Ano’s suggestion of “going to heaven” actually turns out to be the least insane direction! I still haven’t found a “good end” yet though.
Either way, Hamidashi Paradise ultimately reminds me of the fun times I had upon first going down the rabbit hole of alternative idol, and it was nice looking back at such a personal artefact. And, as I explored all the different options, it still provided a good hour or so of entertainment, which is more than most music videos have managed.
