Recently the PV for Kikkawa Yuu’s 3rd single Konna Watashi de Yokattara was released.
I was surprised at how simple this PV was. Especially since the PV for Hapirapi ~Sunrise~ was so amazing. Even Kikkaka wa You, which looks like it had a cheaper budget, was a more interesting and creative PV. This PV is basically 4 and a half minutes of Kikka just standing there. But for some reason I can’t hate it. Maybe it’s because of my overflowing love of Kikka, but I think this PV is cute. It is painfully simple and cheap, but at the same time it is quirky and cute. And there are still a few fun elements that do liven it up, even if it’s only a little bit. Like the dance scenes for one. I don’t know who’s idea it was to triple Kikka during the dance scenes but they are brilliant. It’s such a simple effect, but it really ends up looking amazing and super fun. The multiple Kikka scenes are definitely my favorite shots in the entire PV. I honestly think the rest of the PV is completely random and has sort of a disconnect from the rest of the PV. For the first half of the PV Kikka is dancing in all white during the night in what looks like the top floor of this building. But then the rest of the PV is Kikka dancing in very bright clothing in the parking lot of some building during the day, with really gorgeous natural lighting. I don’t really get what that has to do with anything. I’m having trouble connecting the scenes to each other. And if that wasn’t random enough you also have Kikka playing with puppets thoughout the PV for no apart reason. But I do admit I love those scenes because the entire time Kikka just has this super serious face on. It’s pretty hilarious.
These flashing of different facial expression scenes are cute.
But I can’t stop thinking of ManoEri’s More Friends cover.
Kikka looks really pretty.
I just love Kikka so much, look how cute she is.
She has one of the most natural idol smiles I’ve ever seen.
Three Kikkas, love it.
I’m not a big fan of this cat paw move.
Or this OMG move.
So, she magically teleports here. Of course she does.
You don’t see enough frogs in top hats in idol PVs.
Cute jump. Too bad you only see it for about half a second. Literally, you blink and you miss it.
The dance could be a lot better. This is pretty much the most intense move in the entire dance.
Just because I haven’t said it yet, I love those boots.
Recently Universal Music Japan’s official youtube channel posted a PV preview for Kikka’s upcoming 3rd single, Konna Watashi de Yokattara.
I am completely surprised with how the PV looks. It looks nothing like the first PV preview showed. Which would be the second time the first preview had nothing to do with the finished PV. In this PV preview we are shown a much simpler PV. Even though I wasn’t a fan of the harsh filters the first preview showed, I do think overall it looked like a better PV. This PV has basically nothing going on. It’s just Kikka dancing in a pure white winter outfit in completely bare sets. The whole thing just reminds me of a Mano Erina PV, which is not a good thing. The plain set and outfits completely scream the Onegai Dakara dance shots. And the random faces showing Kikka making different faces immediately makes me think of ManoEri’s More Friends cover. The only time this PV gets really interesting is when the electronic music during the chorus kicks in and Kikka flashes into different locations. And I also do like the 3 Kikka’s dancing simultaneously. But all of that takes place in a span of about about 20 seconds tops. It’s pretty sad actually since I think this is Kikka’s best song to date. Maybe even the best idol song of the year.
Universal Music Japan has uploaded an short PV preview for Kikka’s upcoming 3rd single, Konna Watashi de Yokattara, on their official youtube channel.
I absolutely adore this songby Kikka. It’s literally her best song so far. However, I don’t think the PV lives up to the fun elements in the song. The PV is very similar to her last PV for Hapirapi ~Sunrise~. Both PVs were shot mainly outside, with partial indoor scenes. The PV looks incredibly simple, and it’s relying far too much on camera and editing tricks for a lack of an actual PV. So far the preview shows Kikka doing nothing but standing and walking a few feet. I supposed I’m supposed to be impressed by them randomly changing the color and adding effects to make it look like the film in dissolving. But I’m not at all. I think it’s lazy editing and that they are trying to make a boring PV more exciting. My only hope for the PV right now is that the preview Universal released for Hapirapi ~Sunrise~ was filled with scenes that are not in the actual PV. I really hope this is the case. But since this PV preview is nearly a minute long, I doubt it is.
Kikka’s official website has posted a short preview of her upcoming 3rd single, Konna Watashi de Yokattara. You can listen to the song on her site by clicking here. Once her site loads the song automatically starts.
Even though the preview is extremely short, I am absolutely in love with this song! Just everything about this song is amazing. I was a bit worried that this song was going to be a ballad. But luckily this song is about as far away from a ballad as you can get. Instead it’s a techno-esque dance song. It is extremely upbeat, lively, and fun. It’s super energetic and catchy. It is seriously Kikka at her best, her voice sounds amazing per usual. This is luterally the best song Kikka has released so far. One hundred times better than Kikkake wa You or Candy Pop. Kikka seriously keeps getting better and better.
It was announced recently that Kikkawa Yuu will be releasing her 3rd single. The single is entitled Konna Watashi de Yokattara, and will be released on December 28th.
As always I am completely excited for another Kikka single. Hapirapi ~Sunrise~ wasn’t exactly my favorite song ever, or even my favorite song by Kikka. I think a lot of her B-sides were stronger that Hapirapi ~Sunrise~. But I do think the PV for that song was incredible. The title also makes me think it will be a sofr ballad type song, which we haven’t hear from Kikka yet. And would actually be a welcomed surprise, despite how much I’m not a fan of ballads. Kikka is a great singer and could handle a ballad.
