A few weeks ago Morning Musume released the PV for Kono Chikyuu no Heiwa wo Honki de Negatterun da yo from their upcoming double A-side single. I know a few weeks in blog years seems like an eternity, but bear with with I’m still playing blog catch up here. Also, since then a 10 minute version of this PV was uploaded onto Morning Musume’s official youtube channel. But I’m only reviewing the 5 minute PV. A 10 minute PV review would take forever to write and be obnoxiously long. Which is why I didn’t make a new review for the 18 minute PV for AKB48’s Flying Get.
When I first saw the PV preview I was excited for how interesting it looked. But after I watched the whole PV I ended up being more dissapointed then excited. The PV is nothing but a dance shot and close-ups like their PVs always are. I actually do like the background they are dancing on. It’s so elaborate and weird, that it’s awesome. Yes, it is a big cheap looking, bother me. The girls looks flawless, and the outfits are gorgeous. But I’m still bored. If they only thing the PV has going for it is that the background has different fun elemets to it, there’s a problem. The PV is lazy. I can’t really explain it better than that. It’s like they thought because the background is interesting they didn’t need to really bother beyond that. It’s the same exact thing they did with Berryz Koubou’s Ryuusei Boy. Just shoved them in space and call it a day. Matsuura Aya’s Good Bye Natsuo PV had a space theme, with equally awful CG, and still managed to have other elements to it. It’s actually the perfect example of how you can take an incredibly low budget and still make a fun PV.
This scene is adorable. But kind of unnecessary. I wish they found a more intersting way conect the PV to the Kare to Issho ni Omise ga Shitai PV. I would have loved to see them contect the PVs like SNSD conected the Run Devil Run PV to the Oh! one.
Adorable sleeping Aika. I’m so sad that she’s hardly in this PV.
Zukki is so lovely. Her cuteness will surpass Sayumi’s in no time.
Am I the only one who’s just not interested in seeing their feet at all? And I forgot to mention that of course Reina is wearing leopard print.
Quick open the magic door! Unless this is an homage to the Twillight Zone, (I doubt Japan even knows what that is. XD) I honestly think it’s a bit lame. But I bet C.S. Lewis would have gotten a kick out of it.
Ai-chan looks stunning in this outfit.
I’m not gonna lie, cheap or not, I completely love the space background.
I always though Sayumi got stuck with the ugliest outfit. But if that weird necklace looking fabric wasn’t there, her outfit would be the best.
Hot. Ai-chan looking all sultry.
Riho looks super cute her. She always looks the best with her hair up.
Wow, Risa’s make up is very striking. Too bad her hairstyle makes her look washed up.
I hate the outfit they make Zukki wear just because she’s a little thicker than the other girls. I think she’ll forever be put in the outfits Risako and Massa wear.
Risa completely demands your attention here.
Hooray for the first apperance of Aika! Besides the beginning of course.
This reminds me of the Renai Revolution 21 dance.
Aika always look pretty in curls. It’s my favorite hairstyle on her.
Sayumi looks gorgeous.
Creepy extreme close-up.
I don’t get Aika haters. How does no one else see she’s as cute as a button?
Is that really Eripon? When did she get that pretty?
I fear that is is what post Ai-chan Morning Musume is going to look like.
This is literally the first time I noticed Mizuki in the entire PV. XD
Sometimes I wish Sayumi wasn’t so adorable. It makes it harder for me to not like her. (But she’s still my least favorite current Momusu member.)
Risa looks so awkward here that it’s adorable.
I can’t get over how incredible Erina looks.
I’m so bored by Reina. She does her hair the same exact way everytime! It does suit her, but come on change it up everyonce in a while.
Zukki’s bright smile can liven up any PV.
That’s the same move from Kimagure Princess!
This gives a whole new meaning to reach for the stars.
