Morning Musume released a review of the PV for their new single, Nanchatte Renai, yesterday. I got to say I’m slightly disappointed. It’s exactly the same format they’re used for their last 4 PVs or so. It’s heavily dance centered with a few close up shots.
The set also reminds me a lot of the Roman My Dear Boy PV.
But other than that, in the 30 odd seconds of the preview nothing really stands out. I’m getting a little bored of Morning Musume’s continuously slow paced songs and seemingly identical PVs. I wonder how long this wash, rinse, repeat cycle will last for.
The preview for Morning Musume’s 40th single, Nanchatte Renai, is out. Which I am completely thrilled about! I was so ready for Momusu to be out of this slow pace single theme they’ve been having.
Even though the song is still slow paced, it’s actually a lot better than Shouganai Yume Oibito. The musical is amazing, it took the good parts from Naichau Kamo and Shogania Yume Oibito and combined them. They even through in some old school Musume and rap just like in Do it! Now. I loved that Koharu got a solo line. She’s been ignored for the past 2 singles. But so have the 8th gen, and their ignored again. Which is pretty sad. I’m tired of the overdose of Reina and Ai. It’s getting a little old.
But overall I’m really happy for this song. Let’s hope the PV doesn’t disappoint.
With over a month until Momusu’s 40th single Nanchatte Renai’s release date, we already have a taste of what the new single will be like. In the form of small picture of the cover.
I’m really liking what I see so far. The girls are looking cute and happy, instead of somber. Which makes me think that we’re getting a break from their last two slow singles. And I’m definitely looking forward to. But you can’t really judge the song style too much on the covers. Shouganai Yume Oibito’s cover are vibrant and happy, yet the song is slow. Morning Musume is also dressed pretty hot. They’re wearing amazing black dresses that look like a mix between Osaka Koi no Uta mixed and Shining Itoshiki Anata.
I expect a lot from this single. Even though Shouganai Yume Oibito was massively popular, I found it boring. I want this new single to have a pizzazz the last 3 singles were lacking. I’m also hoping to see LinLin up front in this single. Since LinLin is part of the new Mini Moni group and has a solo song on Chanpuru 1~Happy Marriage Song Cover Shuu~, I think it’s finally going to be time for her to be featured more in Morning Musume. Maybe she’ll actually get a solo line in the new single. She’s already proved that she’s an amazing singer. She’s also already proved she has a lot of personality. LinLin is going to be getting a lot more popularity from Mini Moni, so why not promote her more now. Besides they are going to need some one to take Reina’s place when Ai and Risa graduate, and Reina becomes the new leader. They haven’t really been shoving anyone else up front lately. Sayumi doesn’t have the vocal ability, and Eri will already be up front either because she’s the new sub leader or because of seniority.
I kind of went off on a future of Momusu tangent there. So I’ll stop before I get into the rest of the members.
