AKB48’s new PV comes through with flying colors

The PV for AKB48’s upcoming single, Flying Get, has been released. I really wanted to say the full PV has been released. But since the PV on the DVD will be a whopping 18 minutes long, this seems more like the short version. Or at least the TV version.

I absolutely love everything about this PV. I think the old martial arts movie theme is incredible. I love that the outfits fit the theme, but are still cute at the same time. I think the fighting scenes are choreographed very well, and are pulled off perfectly. There’s a great balance of the member’s attacking and taking counter attacks. Overall, I think the PV is very exciting and entertaining. And it has the potential to become an amazing PV. That’s right the potential, because I honestly don’t think it’s at a 10/10 just yet. I’d say it’s more of a 7/10. And the reason for that is, while I was watching the PV the entire time everything just seemed rushed. The PV seemed to focus a lot more time on the dancing/singing scenese then they should of. And because of that all the fighting scenes seemed incredibly rushed. It seems like they tried to shorten this PV the best they could. So, they shoved as much fighting, and different girls, as they could in 5 minutes. Making some parts of the PV seem a little choppy.
If anything, this PV seems more like a tease. Now that I’m in intrigued by this PV I really want to see the full version already. I mean, they leave us hanging on Acchan’s and Yuko’s fight! Even though, since Acchan did win the senbatsu it’s 95% likely she wins the fight.

I love how everyone but Acchan stands down here.

I think I’m supposed to be intimidated here, but I’m just not. Lol.

Mayu and Mariko have the cutest hairstyles. And look at Yuki looking all gorgeous.

I absolutely love the set.

I love Yuko’s dress. I really wish everyone get to wear the Chinese dresses, and not just Yuko and Atsuko.

Lolz that they are spliting the senbatsu by boots. The media senbatsu get gold gold boots, and the regualr senbatsu get the black boots. I actually think the black boots are prettier.

Also, I hate that the dance shot looks nearly exactly like their live performances of the song. XD

The glowing eyes are just so random. But look how evil Sayaka looks.

Sasshi!

Mayu!

I never really liked this outfits before, but they are actually pretty cute.

Acchan looks pretty here.

Amina’s creepy face. XD

Right in the face! Poor, I wanna say Sayaka, but it’s too blurry to be 100%.

Despite being attacked, Jurina still manages to look creepy.

I love how Tomomi looks more angry than scared. XD

Um…what?

Yeah, do it Sasshi!

Is that Mayu? It’s extremely hard to tell, but those do look like her ears. XD

Lolz just tossed aside. But I’m sure the less popular members are used to that.

Awesome!

This is awesome too.

Mayu is just adorable!

Lolz at Mariko’s intense face.

Priceless face.

Asuka looks gorgeous here!

No, don’t steal the giant painting of Acchan! Um…what?

Does anyone else think of the crazy 88’s from Kill Bill everytime they see these masked guys?

No one messes with Maeda Atsuko!

Awesome.

Yeah, because everyone has magic lightning powers.

The stare down!

Of course you’re always more evenly matched if you both have magic powers.

The song is called Flying Get, so of course there has to be flying. XD

Acchan looks so much like a guy here. XD

I really want to know what happens!

AKB48-Flying Get PV previews

Two different morning news shows have released PV previews for AKB48’s upcoming single, Flying Get.
When I saw the covers for Flying Get a few days ago, I was completely underwhelmed and didn’t know what to expect from the PV. But I am completely surprised by how much I love the PV so far. The PV seems to be one giant fight scene. AKB48 in their Chinese inspired outfits are fighting bad guys and themselves. The PV just seems really itense and powerful. There’s a lot of intricate sword fighting going on and the girls flipping people on their backs  as well as scenes with the members getting thrown and strangled. Overall the PV looks very interesting and excited. Miles better than the Everyday Kachuusha PV. And it seems like you get to see every senbatsu members. Not like Heavy Rotation where you only really saw the top 10 or so.
The only really fault about this PV is the dance scene. The dance scene looks exactly like the live performances of this song. Which is a little boring in my opinion.

AKB48-Flying Get preview

The first episode of Hana Kimi aired today, so that means we finally have a preview of AKB48’s upcoming 22nd single, Flying Get.

I have been in love with this song since the first listen. As of right now I’ve been listening to the song on a loop for about 10-15minutes now. The music is just incredible. It has this sort of island or tropical feel to it. I’m sure there’s a legit name for this type of music, but I have no idea what it is. XD The music is just energetic, upbeat, and super happy. There’s a lot going on with the music. It sounds like there’s horns and bongos. The song is just amazing, and it has a very distinct summer feel to it. It blows Everyday Kachuusha out of the water. And I think I might this song more than SKE48’s Pareo wa Emerald. Which I didn’t even think was possible. I don’t know, words can’t properlly describe how awesome this song is or how much I love it.

Since this song is really amazing, and with the drama tie-in, there’s no doubt that this song will easily top Everyday Kachuusha’s sales. Which I’m kinda excited about. Have this song beat the record for the best first week sales. And then I’d actually be happy. Because I think this song deserves it.

I would recomend watching this video quickly, if you want to hear the song. Since the video is the actual ending to Hana Kimi, this video most likely won’t be up for much longer.
