Let’s start with the song first. It’s becoming pretty obvious that S/mileage is H!P’s current it group. Whenever H!P has an it group they usually get the better songs, PVs, and promotions. Morning Musume was the it group for the longest time. They it moved to Buono, and then Berryz Koubou. Or so it would seem it did because nothing else explains why Buono was always amazing, and Berryz turned from average to incredible. I say S/mileage must be the current it groups because they have yet to release a bland single. Even though ○○ Ganbaranakutemo Eenende and aMa no Jaku are my least favorite S/mileage singles, they are still pretty awesome songs in their own rights. Onaji Jikyuu de Hataraku Tomodachi no Bijin Mama follows in suit, and is really great. It’s probably my favorite S/mileage song music wise. It’s just got an overly cute and energetic sound. And it sounds completely youthful without sounding childish, if that even makes sense. It’s just got that unique S/mileage sound. I think I’ll be completely thrown off guard if they ever do a ballad. XD And for course it’s got the completely fair line distribution S/mileage always does. But it sounds like this single is mainly lead by Saki. Which I’m completely fine with because Kanon mainly lead the last 2 singles, so I can’t really complain.
Now about the PV sneak peek. I won’t say preview because it’s not really a preview, it’s far too short to be a preview. Firs things first, the dancing outfits. The last single I complained about the outfits looking like tap outfits. And at first glance these outfits look exactly the same. But after 3 singles with nearly duplicate outfits, you begin to see that’s the points. It just dawned on me now, because I’m completely dense and never really realized, S/mileage’s PV outfits have always been school girl outfits. With the exception of Asu wa Date na no ni, Imasugu Koe ga Kikitai. So it’s pretty obvious that’s their overall image. And their 3 major single outfits have been nearly identical. Their outfits have always been, and probably always will be, a fluffy skirt with a prep school jacket with a S/mileage crest. Which in all honesty reminds me of Abingdon Boys School.
But less about their clothes and more about the PV itself. Is anyone else way beyond excited that the Bijin Mama in the PV is Tsuji Nozomi? Of course you are! It seems like we haven’t seen Nono in 3 years. And really we haven’t. Since she withdrew from Gyaruru was the last thing musically she did. Yes I know she preformed on TV, and was in concerts. But I mean PV wise. I’m glad to see Nono doing something other than designing clothes and making babies. XD
I think this is the closest we’ll get to Nono staring in her own PV. I don’t know, it seems if she was going to sing again she would have by now. Or maybe she’s just waiting until her second child is born? I honestly can’t say anything for certain.
