Kikka’s moment in the sun

Recently the full PV for Kikkawa Yuu’s 2nd single, Hapirapi ~Sunrise~ was released.

I’ve already expressed before how much I love this PV based on the preview of it. But I’m not to express it again. I absolutely adore everything about this PV.  It’s the kind of idol PV you hope for everytime a new PV is released. The PV is simple, but at the same time intereseting. What I mean by that is, there are so many elements in the PV that in practically every scene something interesting is happening. But the PV is so clean and simple, that even though there are a lot of things happening it doesn’t feel like it’s too much. Or they are trying to hard to make a good PV. Instead it just seems natural, and Kikka completely shines. It’s one of those PVs that are just a joy to watch. The whole PV is just refreshing and has an ethereal feel to it. Kikka looks beyond gorgeous, and lately just seems like the all around perfect idol. Well, the perfect idol to me anyway.

Kikka is so pretty.

I love this set. It’s probably the best one in the whole PV.

She probably looks the best here too.

Flawless. Kikka is absolutely flawless.

The dance is pretty simple. But at least the outfit is cute.

You can’t beat Kikka’s bright smile. It almost beats Zukki’s. Almost.

I know that high heel wedges are in style right now, but how in the world does she dance in them?

Adorable dance move.

Lip synching is not one of her strong points. She exaggerates way too much.

Setting a place at the tabel for her dog is adorable.

Simple isn’t even the right word for this dance.

Simply gorgeous!

Cute.

I’m not even sure why, but for some reason this is one of my favorite scenes.

It’s awesome the I love you in sign language is one of her dance moves.

Adorable.

Pretty much everything Kikka does is adorable.

Fail!

I’m not sure what this is all about.

Too cute for words.

Why is she lifting her leg up like that?

So pretty.

Awkward dance move. (And a horrible cap.)

Aww, she looks so sad here.

And yet so pretty whe she plays with her hair.

Adorable!

Kikkawa Yuu-Hapirapi ~Sunrise~ PV short version

Recently a short version of the PV for Kikkawa Yuu’s 2nd single, Hapirapi ~Sunrise~ was released. Which is most likely 2/3 of the actual PV, and spoils the surprise of the full version. I can’t stand when they release more than A 30 second preview of a PV. If they are going to release 23 of the PV, why not just release the full PV?

When I saw the first PV preview for this song I was completely dissapointed because it looked like it was nothing more than Kikka in the recording studio. However, that couldn’t be farther than the truth. I am a huge Kikka fangirl and was practically sold after the first 20 seconds. The PV is absolutely amazing, and seems to have a big budget. It’s dynamic and has a lot of different scenes and elements in the PV. Kikka is wearing 3 different outfits, is shot in  4 or 5 different locations, has 3 different close-ups shots, a dance shot, and is featured doing a handful of different activites. The PV is a quintessential summer PV, and some elements of it remind me of ManoEri’s Hajimete no Keiken PV. This PV blows Kikka’s first PV out of the water. However, Hapirapi ~Sunrise~ is only half as good a song as Kikkake wa You. But it is growing on me.
Everything about this PV is just perfect. Kikka looks absolutely flawless, and with each passing single it proves more and more that Kikka should have been a soloist for years now. I absolutely cannot wait until the full version is released.
