SKE48-Pareo wa Emerald PV preview

The official SKE48 youtube channel uploaded a short version of the PV to their upcoming 6th single, Pareo wa Emerald. The PV preview is 1 minute and 38 seconds, so we get to see about 1/3 of the PV. I actually hate when PV previews are this long. Maybe I’m alone on this, but I actually think anything more than 30 seconds ruins the surprise of the PV.

Since this single is being released in the summer and a pareo is a wraparound skirt that’s usually worn over a bathing suit. I think it was pretty obvious that this PV was going to feature SKE48 wearing bikinis. Most of the girls are wearing bikini tops and pareos, but some of the girls are wearing pareo tops and shorts. And since Matsui Jurina is one of them, I’m guessing it’s because only the young girls are being covered up. Which makes no sense because at the end of the preview it shows the members in full bikinis jumping in the ocean. It even seems like Jurina might also be wearing a full bikini too. Selective censorship for the win, I guess? XD

The PV is a little different than I expected it. I thought it was going to be very similar to Ponytail to Shushu, where the whole PV was basically dancing on the beach and close-ups. But I’m glad that this PV has more to offer than just dancing on the beach. To keep up with the 48 groups school girl theme, the rest of the PV is either filmed in a school or doing school activites. Such as watching male classmates play basketball and being part of the rowing team. However, since they are all running out of the school in the beginning, I think this is supposed to be what they are doing with their summer break. Which actually adds even more the the summer theme.

I absolutely adore the song and the PV seems really cute and summery. So, I’m happy all around.

  1. I liked it but I didn't love it.
    The chorus is a little bit generic, and it sounds like it was made after "Chaimu wa Love song." It's all right but it didn't get me jumping off my seat.
    What I'm REALLY looking forward is NMB's debut single. That song sounds so awesome!! And I first heard it here on this blog, so thanks.

  2. I really like the song. It sounds lik their least 2 singles, which I also really loved. It does sound a bit like Chime wa Love Song. XD
    I'm really looking forward to NMB48's debut single too! It's really incredible! Really? That's awesome. And you're welcome. :]
