The official Avex youtube channels has uploaded the full PV to SUPER GiRLS’s 3rd single, Joshiryoku Paradise. Which seems pretty fast if you ask me. I don’t remember SUPER GiRLS releasing a radio rip or PV preview for this song. And the single isn’t even being released until October 5th.
I’m not completely in love with the song. It is a little bland and kind of generic. The song only gets interesting when the chorus hits. And even that’s not really anything to write home about.
But that doesn’t even matter, the song doesn’t really matter. I barely paid attention to the song. I was too busy focusing on the PV. The PV is absolutely incredible! Words can’t even describe or explain how much I love this PV. On a scale of 1-10 it’s probably a 100. This video encompases exactly what SUPER GiRLS is, and that’s a giant idol cliche. SUPER GiRLS doesn’t do, hasn’t done, anything that is remotely unique. For their first PV for Miracle ga Tommanai they wore costumes that looked extremely similar to a bunch of different costumes other idols have worn. For their first single’s PV they did the ever popular idol go to, of a school/school girl PV. For their 2nd single, and 3rd PV, they make a bikini themed PV. And finally this PV is taking elements from Momiro Clover Z. And you know what? I’m not angry about it, and it actually doesn’t bother me the slightest. Because this is a big reason why I love SUPER GiRLS. When it comes to idols I usually like all the obvious idol sounding songs and PVs. It seems that whoever is in control of SUPER GiRLS studied all the current idols and then took the best parts to make this Frankenstein’s monster type of idol group. And I couldn’t be happier about it.
But onto my actual opinions of the PV. The PV is basically the standard dance shot and close-ups. But they do throw in a little side story. A nice chunk of the PV focuses around the girls in a “super girls meeting” to decide what type of costume they are going to wear. Or at least that’s what I get out of it. During this meeting the girls are also dressed up in costumes of every guy’s fantasy. A cheerleader, a police officer, a maid, nurse, etc. Much like they did in Momoiro Clover Z’s PV for Ikuze Kaitou Shoujo. And it copies the costumes almost to a T. I think there’s only 1 or 2 outfits that Momoiro Clvoer Z didn’t wear in their PV. But despite that, I am absolutely in love with this PV. It is just cuteness overload. There is not one frame of the entire PV that isn’t absolutely sugary idol sweet. They even make an incredibly simple dance look adorable. Also, they get extra points for shoving my favorite, Ami, upfront in the dance.
The outfits are super cute. However, they are a total rip-off.
Of Morning Musume.
Even this woah oh woah dance move is cute.
My god Ami is the cutest thing ever! And Meiri really stands out with that hat.
The soccer outfit reminds me of Go Girl ~Koi no Victory~ and Yappa Seishun. Too lazy to find the pics. But I’m sure you’re familiar with the PVs. XD
I love how Aya is trying to add sexiness to her close-up. And you know, what it’s working.
The mics during group close-ups are a good idea. They add an extra cute factor.
But it’s hardly original.
A typical gyaru.
But Nono pulls it off better.
Come on. How is skipping a dance move?
These 4 have the most entertaining close-up shots. And Reira looks so striking here.
Product placement! Because come on, even if they don’t show the lable everyone knows that’s pocky.
Reira standing out again.
Cute. Rina really has a lot of personality.
Seriosuly? A telescope move? XD
Oh the similarities!
And of course MomoClo.
I’m guessing Aya is a secretary.
Just like Kanako.
Adorable. But lol at Kaede.
But Shiori had a better maid outfit.
Ruka looks super adorable here.
Rino so adorable. *O*
Impromptu paper fight!
I’m not really sure what’s so appealing about being a miko.
But Reni was one too. So, obviously there is something.
This is kinda creepy actually. XD
This is kinda cheesy, but it fits in the PV perfectly.
