Ice Creamusume released their 3rd PV for off their first mini album. The song is zài méiyǒu yǔshuǐ zīrùnde xīngqiú shàng shì wúfǎ fùchū ài de ba, which is the Chinese version of Ame no Furanai Hoshi de wa Aisenai Darou. I’m actually really surprised they have another PV. This will be their 4th video off of their 7 track mini album. And it’s really soon. Their last video was released only a month ago. But I guess we can expect this to be their last PV until a new single comes out.
I really love this song no matter what language it’s in. And we can assume the Chinese lyrics are very similar to the Japanese. Maybe not a mirror image but as close as you can get to a foreign language cover. I think the song is very pretty on it’s own. And this is the softest we’ve heard Ice Creamusume sing. I think they handled it really well. It’s defiantly at par with the original. This song is also my favorite song by them. In this song we also see Reirei and Guu-chan taking lead vocals. But it’s hard to tell if from now on how often they’ll be singing because for the most part line distribution has been really fair. I would like to see them up front more. To me they really shine the most in videos. The more I listen to Ice Creamusume the more I’m warming up to them. Some of the girls are really cute and infectious.
As for the PV, I guess it’s trying to have a nostalgic feel, since it takes place in a school. But to me it just reminds me of Buono videos. Even the part where they draw on the black board, Buono has done that in half of their videos. But other than that, the video is really cute. It shows them doing school activities like jumping rope and running track. And for some reason dancing with umbrellas. I’m not sure what that part has to do with anything. The video also has some really pretty close up shots of the girls.
And of course, once again the ugly boots make a triumphant return. I think being tired of seeing those boots is an understatement. Even though this time they are pink instead of brown. But other than the obvious ugly aspect of the outfit, I think their clothes are really cute. They are wearing almost school girl dresses, but designed differently to look more modern and cute. I think they look adorable. Especially Anchii with the bow in her hair.
The video is cute and all but I liked the liànài gémìng 21 video better. I just liked the fun feel their last video had. But I do prefer this more mature song though.
