I have not yet been unimpressed with Not Yet

Even though the PV preview for Not Yet’s debut single was just released a few days ago, the PV is already out. Which is obnoxiously fast. I’ve actually been waiting for a decent quality version of the PV to be uploaded anywhere. Which it hasn’t. So, I’m left with less than perfect quality. Sorry in advance for the quality of the caps.

The PV is extremely simple. I mean this PV is exactly like the PVs H!P makes. But I hear many AKB48 fans complaining. I know that I don’t mind in the very least. You can have a low budget and still make an awesome PV. I think this PV did just that. This PV is so adorable and in such high spirits that I just love it! I just love every minute of it. The PV is vivid, super energetic, and completely engaging. Yes, it is the typical H!P close-up and dance shot format. Actually there are hardly any close-up shots. But I could honestly care less. The dance is amazing, I don’t mind watching it for nearly 5 minutes. I don’t even mind that the PV reminds me of a lot of other idol PVs.
 
 

The set is cute, but it reminds me of a lot of other idol sets.
 

The colorful blocks remind me of Buono’s Our Song PV. Keep in mind I said reminds. Because the backgrounds aren’t that similar. It’s just the first thing that popped in my head. Well actually an LM.C PV popped in my head first. But this is an idol blog, not a Jrock blog. XD
 

It also has the puffy material from Morning Musume’s Onna to Otoko Lullaby Game PV.
 

And more recently C-ute’s Kiss Me Aishiteru PV. XD
 

These outfits are a little weird, but at the same time incredibly adorable.
 

Of course the cheerleader dancers remind me of another PV too. XD
 

And that PV is Buono’s Bravo Bravo.
 
 

I can’t get over how energetic the dance is.
 

Yuko is really pretty.
 

I really need to follow AKB48 better. Since Yui was recently added I didn’t even know she was a member of AKB48. XD
 

I’m sorry but this whole body wave move is so 1980’s.
 

I never really noticed Rino before, but she’s a realy stand out. She’s gorgeous.
 

I really love this dance.
 

But sometimes it reminds me too much of Hey! Say! JUMP’s Time dance.
 

Adorable!
 

All eyes on me, in the center of the ring.
 

Super cute.
 

What’s with the Tokkaiko Junjou chest popping?
 

I really need to stop pointing out similarities. O_O
 

I think I’m in love. *O*
 
 

Not Yet-Shuumatsu Not Yet PV preview

A PV preview has just been released for AKB48 sub-group Not Yet’s debut single Shuumatsu Not Yet. Which is funny because I just said in another post how I hope they release a radio rip so I can make a post about the song. XD

When I first saw the picture of Not Yet a month ago I was expecting this awesome, gritty, rock inspired group. Instead we have this laid back and refreshing group. Which isn’t a bad thing, I was just not expecting it. The song itself isn’t really anything spectacular. It’s an ok song, with a mediocre soft beat. But I became a lot more interested in the group by watching the song performed. I thought the dance was both adorable and exciting to watch. I found the performance itself to be very entertaining. I had a goofy smile on my face throughout it. And since then I’ve been patiently waiting to see what the PV would look like.

And now, the preview is finally out. The preview is extremely short, lasting only about 30 seconds. And the entire time the PV preview consists of Not Yet dancing in 2 extremely odd outfits. The first makes them look like they are a squadron of super heroes. And the second one has like a circus theme, but looks like a standard idol concert outfit.
Despite the PV being nothing but a dance shot, I’m actually really entertained by it. It just looks so cheerful and happy. Maybe it’s the extremely bright background, or maybe it’s the adorable dance. But whatever it is, there’s something I love about this PV and group. The set of the PV reminds me of like 3 different PVs jumbled together. But that doesn’t really bother me. But for me the highlight of the preview was Yuko’s short dance solo, mostly because it reminds me of her awesome dance solo from Heavy Rotation.

All in all I am actually really looking forward to the full PV.


Here’s the PV preview.



And if you have yet to hear the song, here’s them performing half of it. The song starts at 2:07.
