It was announced that Avex idol group SUPER GiRLS will be releasing their 3rd single. The single is called Joshiryoku Paradise and will be released on October 5th.
I’ve been follwing SUPER GiRLS pretty much since day one, so I’m excited to see them release another single. Their last song and PV were upbeat and fun, so I’m curious what kind of song this will turn out to be. Also, since their last PV was a summer and bikini themed PV I wonder what direction this one will take. Hopefully this song will have a nice chunk of Ami like the last one did.
Avex idol group SUPER GIRLS, have released their PV for Max! Otome Gokoro off their 2nd single. Also since I’m pretty sure their 2nd single is a double A-side, so most likely expect another PV from this single.
I have been following SUPER GIRLS almost since their formation. But I didn’t really take notice until they announced their major debut and released their first PV for Miracle ga Tommanai. And I have to say that I like SUPER GIRLS. I like their look and overall sound. But I have to say at their best SUPER GIRLS are and always have been walking idol cliches. Fans have been complaining about and noticing their similarities to other idol groups since their first PV. And like I said in my PV review of Miracle ga Tommanai it was pretty much a carbon copy of every idol PV out there. And that seems to be what SUPER GIRLS are continuing to do. They look at whatever is popular in idol PV and copy it to get more exposure and fans. People like to say that SUPER GIRLS are mostly copying AKB48, because AKB48 whole theme is wearing school uniforms and they have bikini PVs. But honestly SUPER GIRLS takes elements from all the idol groups out there. The Ganbatte Seishun PV not only reminds me of AKB48, but their are some similarities to Buono and S/mileage PVs. Even ManoEri’s Seishun no Serenade was filmed in a school. But with the Max! Otome Gokoro PV it seems like they just had to make a PV that featured everyone’s favorite fanservice, the bikini PV. When I first watched the PV of course I was unimpressed because to me the bikini PVs are extremely flat. And not just because I’m a girl and the fanservice is wasted on me, but because I think bikini PVs are getting really old. AKB48 has done 2 now, Berryz Koubou and Morning Musume had those bikini PVs in their Allo-Hello DVDs. And I can see as a new idol group who is competing with AKB48, they felt they had to do a bikini themed PV but really they didn’t. Look at idol group Ebisu Muscats. Despite being an idol group made up of gravure and AV idols, they have yet to release a bikini PV. And when Momoiro Clover had a summer song. They didn’t wear bikinis either. They opted to make it a more playful PV. And that’s pretty much how I prefer my idols to be. Cute, fun, silly, playful, and singing extremely upbeat and happy music. Which is why I adore SUPER GIRLS. Yes, they might be every idol cliche in the book, but I like idol cliches. They turn out to be my favorite idol groups, songs, and PVs. If I wanted anything beyond regular idol fare, I obviously wouldn’t be listening to idol music in the first place.
But none of that really has anything to with the Max! Otome Gokoro PV. Reading all of that above you’d probably think I didn’t like the PV but I actually did. Because despite of it being obvious fanservice which does nothing for me, they still managed to do it in a very cute and playful way. They weren’t rubbing lotion on each other or having a pillow fight in lingerie. It was more or less and innocent PV that they just happened to be wearing bikinis in. Well, as innocent as dancing in bikinis can be received. And being a fan as idols as long as I have I realized these PVs are done mostly for fanservice. But they are also done in good fun, to be playful and tease the viewer. Which is an aspect I can appreciate. I like the playful aspect of this PV. How they also added elements of humor. I like when my idols parade around acting all idoly. Whether it’s in bikinis, or school uniforms, or hideous concert outfits.
Of course the PV has to start off showing their school uniforms.
Let the idol deja vu begin!
It wouldn’t feel quite like an idol PV without an insanely simple dance.
And the bikinis begin just a little before the minute mark. They actually really pretty though. I completely would steal snorkle girl’s and Rika’s. XD
Adorable! Ami is the cutest and definitely one of my favorites.
Kaede is really pretty. She almost looks like Saori’s twin to me.
I can totally see why Rika is on of the most popular members. However, Rino is looking really adorable too.
This is the first time Mirei actually looks pretty.
I think I’m Ami biased.
For some reason I really love this scene. XD
Look at Ruka looking all cute.
Words can’t even begin to describe how random this is.
And now there in yukatas for some reason.
Aya looks cute here.
Awkward dance move.
Not sure how this is supposed to be scary.
I think it’s actually really cute to have them pretend to film and direct.
Avex idol group SUPER GIRLS announced they will be releasing their 2nd single sometime June. The single is titled MAX! Otomegokoro / Happy GO Lucky! ~Happy Lucky de Go!~. Since there’s a slash that means this single will most likely be another double A-side. Was their last single a double A-side? Well, both songs got PV, so I’m just going to assume it was. XD Also this single will be used as the ending theme song for the anime Pretty Rhythm Aurora Dream.
I am actually really excited that SUPER GIRLS is going to be releasing another single. I thought their last single was amazing. A lot of people think SUPER GIRLS are too run of the mill idol groups. But I absolutely adore them and their style. Because honestly run of the mill idol music, is my favorite type of idol music. I listen to it because it’s happy and upbeat, not because it’s meaningful. Well, that’s not to say I don’t like the meaningful songs as well. XD Anyway, I’m really looking forward to hearing what their new single sounds like. Even though it’s months away.
With only 11 days until Avex’s idol group SUPER GIRLS’s debut album, Chouzetsu Shoujo, is released they are previewing all 10/14 tracks from their album on their official site. You can listen to the clips here.
Since I’ve been following the SUPER GIRLS pretty closely since they announced there debut, I was pretty excited to hear this news. The only down side is the previews are only 29 seconds. Which isn’t really enough time to get a feel for the songs. Like the first track, Welcome to ♥ S☆G Show!!, all you can hear is a small clip of music. The rest is some guy introducing the girls in better than I was expecting English. But the music could completely change after that part, so it sucks. But it’s only 11 more days to wait.
It’s exciting because I remember some of the songs from their Tokyo Idol Festival performance. Most of the songs you can preview sound pretty much all the same. Extremely happy, upbeat, cutesy idol music. It’s pretty much on par and sounds the same as every other idol group out there. Which doesn’t really bother me because that’s the exact type of idol music I love.
Number 10, NIJIIRO Namida (Which translates to rainbow colored tears) seems to be their only slow paced/sad song so far. Which is awesome because I tend to hate slow paced songs. But it really depends on the lyrics, which I don’t understand yet.
SUPER GIRLS released their debut PV, Miracle ga Tommanai, through their USTREAM account. Since this song isn’t a single, and is coming straight off their debut album Chouzetsu Shoujou, I wonder if this means some other songs will get PVs too? I would love for that to happen, but honestly I doubt it will.
A lot of people were expecting another completely unique idol group. Since Avex usually makes out of the ordinary idol groups like Hinoi Team and AAA. But honestly I am really excited to another SweetS type idol group from Avex. The song and PV are pretty much carbon copies of every other idol group that’s out there. Which is completely expected. It’s hard to make an idol group now a days, that’s actually original. The PV is pretty simple, almost boring. But since it’s their first PV you have to cut them some slack.
I absolutely love the outfits.
This chick looks like a mix between Ariyasu Momoka and Watanabe Mayu. And I hate the super low quality. XD
Well, she’s cute.
Wow, this girl is the prettiest.
Look, it’s Tsuji Nozomi mixed with Tanaka Reina.
Oh man, she has a cute voice to match.
She totally looks like Hayami Akari mixed with Akimoto Sayaka.
The random hearts reminds me of Ice Creamusume’s debut PV, but I’m too lazy to go make a cap. XD
Haato! She has Arihara Kanan ears, except more intense.
I really need to stop making caps of this girl. But she’s just so pretty.
Oh man, it’s just like Perfume’s Baby Cruising Love. Too lazy to make a cap of that too. XD
Avex’s new idol group, SUPER GIRLS, announced at a recent concert that they will be making their CD debut on December 22nd. They will be releasing a full album entitled Chouzetsu Shoujo.
I have to admit I haven’t really been keeping up with this group. Mostly because there hasn’t really been anything to keep up with. Aside from their formation, auditions, and live performances, they haven’t really been doing much of anything. But since they are finally making their debut I am pretty interested. And the group is singed to Avex, so it will most likely be really popular. So I decided to check them out.
First things first, the girls.
For the most part the girls look really cute. Especially the girl dead center with the pigtails. My god she looks like a mix between Watanabe Mayu and Michishige Sayumi. I’m pretty sure it’s 12 year old Ami Takuya. I also really like their overall look. Though it’s pretty standard for idols.
And next the music. Since they haven’t released a single or PV, I have to go by live performances. Which by the way, are pretty hard to find. But luckily I found their performance at the 2010 Tokyo Idol Festival.
The songs are really cute. But there’s not really anything that stands out about them. They pretty much sounds like every other idol group out there. Actually their music sounds a lot like Idoling!!! But I ended up liking each song more than the last.
The solos are also a little bit rough. And no one in the group is an overly amazing singer. But they are idols after all. Bad singing is basically in their job description.
I will most likely be keeping an eye on them from now on. Let’s see if their debut album and possible PV are any good.
