A few days ago the full PV for Wonderful Cupid off of NYC’s upcoming double A-side new single, Wonderful Cupid/Garasu no Mahou.
When I first saw the PV previews I was actually pretty excited to see what the full PV looked liked. I thought it had a very cute theme, that was perfect for the audience it was aimed at. Even though being inside of a book has been done before, and actually seems kind of over used, I thought they could have done a lot with the theme. Sadly they don’t seem to do much of anything in the PV. Most of the PV is just NYC turning the book pages. And once inside the book they just seem to be focused on the dogs more than anything. Which is completely boring. Where’s the exciting storline beyond that? What about showing how NYC ended up in the book in the first place. Give me something to work with. Instead of the bland 3 minutes of watching NYC walking nonexistent dogs we were given. Perhaps since the song is for children they felt they really didn’t have to try or something? But it’s actually the exact opposite. Children are very visual. Which is why any children’s show you watch it bursting with colors, odd shapes, and pretty much nonstop excitement. I wish the PV reflected that more, then it would be more watchable. Another PV like Magic Power is what I was honestly expecting.
The cover, how exciting.
Still reminds me so much of the I Wish PV.
I have to admit, they always put NYC in some nice clothes.
A pet shop, I’m uninterested already.
Being inside the book reminds me of the Chance PV.
That hair really does nothing for Ryosuke. :/
I just don’t find Chinen even a little bit cute.
Suddenly reminding me how childish the PV is.
I wish Yuma would go back to having black hair, it’s when he looked the best.
What boring group close-ups. They are just sitting there emotionless.
Enter random foreign chick. I am always pretty jealous whenever I see American or European girls in Japanese music videos.
Though, to be honest, I’m far more jealous of this girl.
Sick of the dogs already.
They both have dogs so of course they are meant to be.
Am I the only one who thinks this girl looks a little young? Like might be 14, young?
I see what you did there. Basically making them kiss, without them actually having to kiss.
