French Kiss-Kakkowarui I Love You PV preview

A PV preview for AKB48 sub-group French Kiss’s upcoming single, Kakkowarui I Love You has just been released. The preview is only 35 seconds long, but it’s enough to get the overall feel.

The PV looks pretty much like I expected. Since the single isn’t featuring a drama like their previews singles have, this PV follows the standard idol PV formula. The only thing we see in this PV so far are close-ups, dance shots, and a scene of the 3 of them sitting on a couch. And that’s basically it.
The background during the dance scenes looks like something Perfume would dance in front of. There a random shapes cut out on the floor in front on a line of circular lights. It has a very futuristic feel to it. Like it would be the inside of a space ship, which I think is really awesome. The background being so interesting on its own, does distract you from the fairly simple dance French Kiss is doing.

But since the PV preview is so short that’s basically the only comments I can make on the PV so far. There’s nothing else really going on. I mean, the girls of course look cute, especially Yuki, and the outfits are cute. But that’s pretty much all that’s going on for now. However, during the last second or two it does show Yuki bending next to a chair. Which seems like they are going to be mixing sexy elements in this PV along with the cute ones.

French Kiss-Kakkowarui I Love You preview

 

The radio rip for AKB48 sub-group French Kiss’s upcoming single, Kakkowarui I Love You, has just been released. As you know this single will be used as the opening for Kashiwagi Yuki’s anime Sket Dance.

I am really impressed with the song. It sounds really different then their last 2 singles. Well, actually it sounds a tiny bit like Zutto Mae Kara. But the overall music for Kakkowarui I Love You is amazing. It’s a lot stronger and heavier than anything French Kiss has done before. And a huge step away from their single If, which was extremely slow and soft. The song has obvious anime sounding music, and it should as it’s the opening for one. But I love the overall sound of the song. Everyone’s singing sounds absolutely amazing. And of course Yuki sings a majority of the song. But I don’t really mind because Asuka and Aki sound really great. Especially Aki, her cutesy voice fits this song perfectly. This song also reminds me of something H!P would release, which is probably why I like it so much. There’s a distinct type of idol music that I like. And this is it.

French Kiss to release 3rd single

 
AKB48 sub group French Kiss has just announced they will be releasing their 3rd single. The song is entitled Kakkowarui I love you and will be released on May 11th. The song will be used as the opening theme to the anime Sket Dance where Kashiwagi Yuki voice acts in.
 
Since the release is over a month away there’s not much known about the single so far. The only thing that is know is the Limited Edition Type A won’t come with a drama this time. I’ll keep updated on this single as news about it gets released.

If only French Kiss could find love

AKB48 sub-group French Kiss released the PV for their 2nd single, If, a couple of days ago. I’m a little less than a week late to make this post. But there’s nothing that says I absolutely have to make the review the day the PV comes out. XD

I’ve been really impressed with this song since I first heard it. So, I’ve been super excited to see the PV. Mostly because I love school themed PVs. I think they always come out cuter. The PV is apparently based off a drama that’s included in some versions of the single. But I didn’t bother watching the drama. Obviously since I can’t speak Japanese there’d but no point. But because of that the PV doesn’t make 100% sence. I am it’s simple enough for you to know the main storyline. Yuki’s guy treats her bad, Asuka is too afraid to confess, and Aki has unrequited love. But the PV also throws other random clips throughout the PV that you realize you’re not getting the whole story/big picture.
 

  Yuki is super pretty.
 

  I am in love with these outfits. They remind me of C-ute’s Aitai Lonely Christmas outfits.
 
 

  All for one and one for all! I don’t know, I just thought this was really cute.
 
 

  Look how Aki looks.
 

  I’m sorry, but I’d kill for those boots. But not Aki’s, they’re hideous. XD
 

  Asuka looks gorgeous.
 

  Seriously? In the preview he looked kinda cute. He’s maybe a 3. :/
 

  But the guy sitting next to Asuka is completely cute! D:
 

  But she likes him? Seriously, the casting director is blind!
 

  It is just me or, does anyone else notice that sometimes Asuka looks very cat like. She’s still super pretty though.
 

  Woah, I just got a wicked flashback of Morning Musume’s Namida ga Tomaranai Houkago PV.
 

  Apparently he was just making weird before because he’s totally a 6. *O*
 

  Adorable!
 

  Yeah, don’t leave mildly attractive love interest. XD
 

  It totally looked like they were randomly going to make out here. Lolz.
 

  That’s funny, I’ve never once feed food to a female friend. XD Cute scene though.
 

  Asuka’s about to make some Morning Coffee. Come on it’s the same outfit from the PV! Yes, I realize that, that’s a common outfit to wear. But whatever. By the way, for some reason Asuka looks 100 times prettier with glasses.
 

  Lolz. Yea, that always cheers me up too. XD
 
 

  Aww they all got to confess their feelings.


(PV) French Kiss – If (1280×720 H.264)

French Kiss-If preview

AKB48 subgroup French Kiss will be releasing their 2nd single, If, on January 19th.

This is yet another song and PV preview in one. Which means we hardly get to hear the song at all. Nothing beyond the chorus, so the verse and bridge could be completely bland. However, I hope that’s not the cause because the chorus is completely amazing. It’s pretty soft but heavy enough to dance to. The song so far is also extremely catchy and very pleasant to listen to. But that’s mostly because of the flawlessness of Yuki’s voice. She definitely one of the best, and one of my favorite, voices in AKB48. French Kiss as a whole blends together beautifully. All of the members seem to have similar voices/tones in their voices.

I also want to briefly talk about the PV because the 40 seconds that they show seem to tell the whole story. In the 40 seconds you mostly only see the dance scenes and each member longing for someone at school. But what the story looks like to me is all 3 girls like the same guy, but Yuki ends up seeing him behind her friends back. Hence why she’s always walking ahead of them, like she’s leaving them early to meet him. That would make the PV really interesting. But it will probably end up being something more mundane like basically just longer for someone and “if” you were with them. But either way I’m excited for the PV. Half because I like the song and half because the guy in it looks pretty cute.
