YuiKaori-Shooting Smile PV preview

Even though YuiKaori’s new single, Shooting Smile, isn’t being released for another month they’ve just released a PV preview for the song. The preview is a minute and 20 seconds long, and is more like a short version of the PV. 

I absolutely love this song and am glad that we finally get to hear more than 30 seconds of it.  The PV reminds me a lot of their PV for Heartbeat ga Tomaranai. Where it’s them dancing in a separate place, with their matching outfits, and then them running around town in their school uniforms. Granted that Heartbeat ga Tomaranai was filmed during the day, and had more of a storyline beyond that. I still think the two PVs are similar regardless. I do really like the oufits they are wearing though. Despite the fact that they are yellow, they’re cute. They actually kind of look like the Doublemint Twins in those dresses. XD
I’m a little dissapointed by the dance. Dancing is usually YuiKaori’s strong point, their dances are always incredible. But this dance is too stiff and robotic. But at the end of the preview it alludes to the PV having a robot theme, so it most likely interconnects that way. But we won’t know 100% until the full PV is out.

YuiKaori-Heartbeat ga Tomaranai PV preview

Apparently a few days after YuiKaori previewd their new single, Heartbeat ga Tomaranai, on their web radio show they also released an actual PV preview a couple of days later. But this just completely fell under my radar. I actually completely forgot they hadn’t released the PV preview yet until today.

Since this is YuiKaori’s most toned downed single it only makes sense it’s their simplest PV. But it still turns out to be a completely adorable PV. The PV storyline follows a lovesick YuiKaori throughout the town being followed by a giant heart. They also keep checking their cell phone a lot, so I bet there’s something about phones in the lyrics. I could have sworn I heard keitai in there somewhere.


And of course the main focus of this PV, and every other YuiKaori PV, is the dance scene. The dance scenes are my absolute favorite because YuiKaori are wearing gigantic white bows. Which remind me of Tsuji Nozomi and Suzuki Airi. XD

YuiKaori-Heartbeat ga Tomarani preview

On a recent episode of YuiKaori’s web radio show, YuiKaori no Mi, YuiKaori danced to a short version of their upcoming single Heartbeat ga Tomaranai. Which is completely exciting news since this is the first time we’re hearing the new single.

This single is significantly toned down from their first 2 singles. But that doesn’t make the song any less great. The song still has a very upbeat and cute musical track. But after the heavy anime music of Our Steady Boy, and the huge dance beat of Vivivid Party, anything released after it would just seem slow by default. But I am happy to say that YuiKaori has yet to disappoint me. They really are turning out the be the greatest duo since W. (Because NO ONE will ever replace W. I think I’ve mentione dthat before. XD) The song is keeping with YuiKaori’s adorable theme. The song actually sounds pretty refreshing and unique. After listening to this short preview I have a perfect image of what the PV should be. For some reason this just makes me think of YuiKaori riding bikes in their school uniform, and maybe on top of a cliff by an ocean. (ZONE’s True Blue anyone?) But in general I want an outside PV. As for the song, there’s not really much else I can say about it. It’s incredibly adorable and I am instantly in love with it. I just find YuiKaori’s whole aura entrancing.
 
 

YuiKaori throws a vivid party

It’s finally out! The PV for YuiKaori’s second single, Vivivid Party, is finally out! I’ve been checking youtube everyday obsessively for a month waiting for the full PV to be released. I am completely excited to finally have the full version.

Also am I the only one bothered by the fact that their song has an extra vi? It should be Vivid Party. But I guess it was added for cuteness, just Kusumi Koharu’s Papancake single. Either that or someone really sucks at English.


I completely love their outfits.


Some parts of the dance are just a little bit awkward.


Yui is so adorable!


But Kaori is miles cuter.


Definitely awkward dance. XD


I officially need to become a dancer. Look at all the random foreign dancers in this PV.


I’m more impressed with this then I should be.


The cute screen caps of Yui could be endless.


Kaori looks gorgeous. The curly hair really suits her. She should seriously always have her hair like this.


Kaori bias. Though I’m not 199% sure what her hat is supposed to be.


Lolz at weird dance move.


Simple dance move, but it’s actually really cute.


Extreme leg close up.


Insert perverted comment here. XD


Reminds me of Dakishimete Dakishimete.


Gorgeous!


Awkward.


Yuipatra


I love Kaori.


Adorable!


That’s kinda creepy. Someone lurking in the mirror.


I knew he wasn’t dead!


^_^


This part of the dance is really awesome.


Lol.


Gosh Kaori is so cute.


Gotta end it big.
