The Kura Sushi official website posted original PVs for Muten Musume’s Appare Kaiten Zushi single. The PVs are extremely short, one is 19 seconds version and the other is 39 seconds version. I think it’s pretty apparent that we most likely will not getting a full PV from this song. When the release date came and went it was apparent. It seems like these “PVs” were made merely as a small promotion for their chain alone, and absolutely nothing to do with the single itself.
The videos themselves are extremely simple. All it does is show Morning Musume’s anime versions flying around sushi. Which is completely not what I was expecting at all. I am a little sad that this is the extent of the PV for this song. But fans should be happy we got anything at all.
ManoEri’s new song, Sekai wa Summer Party, is being released July 29th. And yet the PV was released already. I guess H!P is trying to keep the attention on her since she recently made her Music Station debut.
The PV itself a little boring and cheap looking. For her dance scene she dances in front of a giant globe in a plain white room. Which is one of the cheapest sets in all of H!P. Ice Creamusume has the cheapest. I understand that the title translates as The World is a Summer Party, but is it really necessary to have that big of an Earth in the background. It’s just awkward looking and takes focous away from the Eggs Erina. Then the other aspect of the PV is the room she plays piano in. And it’s just styled as the typical H!P room. This room could have been used for the Chance PV or the Tropical Koishiteru PV. That’s how generic the rooms usually are. The room actually reminds me of her Hajimete no Keiken video. Throughout the PV there’s also a lot of weird sparkles randomly placed, for no apparent reason. I sure hope the lyrics have something to do with sparkling, or that would just be stupid. The upside to the PV is the outfits she wears. Her school looking dress couldn’t get any cuter.
Cheap set :/
Dramatic close up of her fingers
I like that she has the Eggs in her video again.
And look at those insanely easy dance moves
I spot a Yuuka
A snorkel how practical
I think I liked this dance move a little more than I should have
And the pixie dust starts. It’s makes her suitcase enchanted XD
Now there’s a way to use sparkles!
It looks like she’s doing the Charleston
I think Erina just got laid. It HAD to be said.
I spot a Kanon
The never ending suitcase leads you to a world of ominous
Erina’s staying alive. And somehow Yuuka made that move
Yeah. That pose is really showing off her rabbit cheeks
What’s over there? Is it more sparkles?
They’re even doing tap dance moves.
Quick something useful, like a pineapple! LOL face.
Of course she winks stars
Doo kyacchi shiyou ka? oh wait wrong group.
You spin me right round
I’ve never loved the letter E more in my life
Now act like you’ve never seen bubbles before
I’m starting to really like ManoEri’s songs. I really didn’t like her indie singles or her first major single, but her last two singles were surprisingly good. I’m even starting to tolerate like her singing.
Buono’s 7th single, My Boy, is being released April, 29th. And as expected the PV was released today.
I’ve been pretty excited for this video to come out since the commercial was released a few days ago. The PV is different then the PVs we’re used to seeing from Buono. It has a set storyline, where as the others were essentially dancing and close up shots. The overall theme of the video is Buono as secret agents sent out to steal something. So there’s a lot of James Bond like scenes going on throughout the entire video. Which they must of spent too much time filming. That the only way to explain the less than impressive dance. The dance is really painfully simple. Some parts are a little reminiscent of the Honto no Jibun dance and the rest just reminds me of aerobics. The hands down best part of the PV is Buono’s overall styling and outfits. Which makes for absolutely gorgeous close ups. But I’m really not a fan of Momoko’s and Miyabi’s hair styles. Momoko has a weird bun thing going on, that does nothing for her. And Miyabi’s new shorter hair is a little disappointing.
Overall I think the PV is cute. It’s not the worst PV by Buono, but it’s not the best either.
Buono’s heart. My first thought was this was a box of chocolates.
Heart box is serious business
The dance floor looks a lot like V-U-DEN’s. This also looks like Pepper Keibu’s chandelier
For future references Momoko fits perfectly in a trunk.
Airi spying it up
This hairstyle makes Miyabi’s face long extra long and awkward
Epic Momoko reaction #1. That’s the best face ever!
Ok, Miyabi looks good here
I think I miss the Bye Bye Bye dance moves
Once again Airi’s cuteness solves everything
Yet another awkward dance move
When your run out of ideas just throw your arms randomly up in the air
Pop that chest Airi
I could seriously come up with better dance moves
Airi’s legs make me laugh
Only Airi could make stealing look adorable
Very sly Momo
This lighting makes Miyabi look gorgeous
Epic Momoko reaction #2. Who knew armor could be that
Momoko’s cute smile
Wait why does Airi only have one earring?
Epic Momoko reaction #3. How adorable
Secret Momoko wota
Secret Miyabi wota
Secret Airi wota
Honto no Jibun anyone?
Lighting working in Momoko’s favor
This reminds me of C/C
Epic Momoko reaction #4. Not really a reaction but cute
none the less
Everyone’s epic reaction
Seems like a lot of work for a cake
Epic Momoko reaction #5. She looks way to happy to be the
Buono released a short 30 second commercial for their up and coming new single, My Boy. And so far I like what I see.
There’s a whole secret agent/secret mission theme going on in the PV. Which is just truly awesome. There’s also a few really gorgeous close ups of the girls in the preview. Airi looks especially great. I’m all really surprised by how pretty the outfits are. I thought the outfits were cute since the covers were out, but they are way prettier than I thought they would be. They’re really colorful and have a nice mixture of rock and cute. You also see a really small part of the dance in the preview. And what I can see of the dance looks really simple and at the same time a little sexy. I do hope there is more going on to the dance then what was shown. I’d hate to see another Bye Bye Bye dance let down.
NEWS’s 11th single, Koi no ABO, on April 29th. And the PV has been released already. It hasn’t even been a week since the PV preview.
I don’t think words can describe how happy I am about NEWS’s new song. I already said how much I love this song, but hearing it in high quality makes me love it even more. I think it’s really cute how they describe all the personality traits of each blood type. Which makes me really sad that I don’t know what my blood type is. I think this is one of the few NEWS songs were Shige’s voice actually sounds good. He’s not pushing his voice like he usually does. And I still have to say Keii-chan sounds the best.
When I fist saw the PV preview I thought they were in a host club, but they’re not. If you look closely you can see guys in the club, so it’s just a regular night club. Just a regular night club with the ratio of girls to guys being 3 to 1. So there’s a lot of scenes where the members are awkwardly dancing by a group of girls, hitting on girls, or just surrounded by girls in general. But besides all the girl scenes the video is supposed to funny and cute, which it is. But Shige goes way over the top with all his weird faces. Which there’s really no excuse for. Everyone one was shooting the same video and yet only Shige made really stupid faces. Everyone else managed to still look cute or sexy. I think the best part of the video is at the end when everyone joins in the dance. And out of nowhere there’s a guy dancing in a leopard print suit. Which is almost as funny as Yamapi’s wannabe afro. The worst part of the video is the morphing scenes. They give you a mini headache. But if you’re like me and watch the video like 5 or 6 times in a row they give you a migraine.

Ok, I got a little carried away with the pics this time. But hey I’m a NEWS fangirl, what did you expect? And you know you loved it.
C-ute’s 8th single, Bye Bye Bye, is being released April 15th. It will be their first release since January.
So, I’m here to give you a better late than never review. This time of C-ute’s new PV and song. Which came out about a week ago.
I actually really love the song. But I feel almost guilty about liking it. I think because Kanna’s not in it I shouldn’t like it as much as I do. I’m Kanna biased! But the song is really good, I love the dance and techno theme the music has. The overall tempo of the song is a little bit on the slow side though. Even at the chorus it barely picks up. The line distribution is another reason this song is awesome. Of course there’s still the overdose of the Airi/Maimi combo. But everyone else gets 3-4 solo lines. Which is nice for a change. Mai sounds especially great in this song. Her voice wsa just perfect for this song. But I really hate that on every Saki solo line they do that crackling effect to her voice. You can’t even really hear her voice. I know Saki isn’t the greatest vocalist of C-ute but come on every solo line. That’s a little harsh.
As for the PV, I think less than impressed would be an understatement. There’s just so many reasons it was a dud for me. First off, I absolutely hate the outfits. They are like futuristic race queen outfits. And the silver and pink combo reminds me of Nono’s Robo Kiss outfit. The PV also focused way to much on the giant Bye Bye Bye screen in the background. I swear they did like 12 separate effects on the background. It’s not that important. And the dance was just an absolute fail. Easily one of the worst and unimaginative H!P dances in a while. For the chorus they just throw their hands up in the air. They really just phoned in the dance. The overall set is boring too. Take away the big flashing sign and what do you have really? Plain silver walls and a few lights off to the side. It makes it look like a dance shot rather than a PV. Another thing I don’t like is the close up background. I don’t understand how Easter pastels match anything. The girls to look really pretty in the close up though. Especially Chisato, she blew me away.

Awkward dance #1. I don’t even know what’s going on
Airi saving the PV with her cutness but Mai is not amused

Awkward dance #9. Now hug yourself
As much as I miss Kanna from the song and video, even she couldn’t have made it better. She just would have made it more watchable.
