The full radio rip for Morning Musume’s upcoming single, Maji Desu ka Ska, was just released.
Hearing the full song, just makes me love the song even more. The beat, the singing, the lyrics, theirs just absolutely nothing I don’t love about this song. I have absolutely no complaints about the song. I have been waiting an eternity for Momusu to be upbeat again, and now that they are I am completely thrilled about it.
I am also really surprised by how fair the line distribution is. I was expecting the 9th gen to only get 1 solo line. But every single Morning Musume member has 2 solo lines. Expect for Ai-chan and Reina who have 4 lines. Which is a huge step from their last single where basically only Ai, Reina, Risa, and Eri got the solo lines. It really feels like Morning Musume is going back to my favorite Morning Musume era. The era right after the 5th gen joined and right before the 7th joined. Where the songs were super upbeat and the line distribution was extremely fair.
On yesterday’s episode of Bijou Gaku, they continued their focus on the 9th gen and aired a short PV preview.
Most of the segment focused on th 9th generation learning the song, but half way through they were joined by the other Morning Musume members. And in that time we get to see nearly the entire dance. And I gotta say the dance look really amazing. The moves are simple, but the dance itself is high energy and a lot of fun. Watching the 9th gen dance Riho, Mizuki, and Erina are at an extremely high level in their dancing. They are nearly perfect. Kanon not so much. Even though she has improved so much since the auditions, her dancing is noticeably worse then the other girls. She can only kick half as high as the other members. But of course over time she will improve. Koharu went from being one of the worst dancer to one of the best, in my opinion. I am just really impressed by the dance. After the dissapointing Onna to Otoko no Lullaby Game dance, I’m glad that this one is actually really cute.
It was really nice to see how the other members interact with the 9th gen. Despite Ai-chan being the leader, Risa and Aika were looking over the girls the most.
The best part of the whole dance was Aika and Kanon dancing together.
They are totally my top 2 in Morning Musume now. Mittsi has always been one of my favorites and Zuki is starting to be one of my favorites. She’s like my Koharu and LinLin replacement.
The PV preview is literally only 8 seconds long. And in that time we only see them dancing in nearly identical outfits as in the Naichau Kamo PV. And we see a close up of Erina wearing and outfit similar to the one Miyabi wore in the Maji Bomber PV. I can’t really judge the PV so quickly, but so far it does look cute.
