Momusu’s channels their weirdness for new PV

Recently the PV for Kare to Issho ni Omise ga Shitai, which is the 2nd A-side from Morning Musume’s upcoming single, was released. I was going to review this PV sooner, but I couldn’t find the PV on youtube. Then I finally realized that the 10 minute video hey uploaded was both A-sides together. Not one of my finer moments. XD

This PV, I can’t even put into words how amazing it is. This is one of the cheapest PVs Morning Musume has ever made, but at the same time it’s one of the best PVs Morning Musume has ever made! And it’s not everyday you can make a statement like that. Since this PV is set in Sayumi’s dream, they could really play up the weirdness. And play it up they did! And as a result we are left with a PV that is so weird, and so random you are left asking yourself “what did I watch,” and, “how much acid were they on when they came up with this.” Which is the kind of PV I have waiting for Morning Musume to do since I became a fan. It really brings out the youthful, almost child like spirit, and is wacky, zany, and all kinds of awesome. I mean this PV has outfits that are just one pola dot away from being absolutely hideous. But somehow manage to stay on the eccentric, and playful side of the spectrum. I don’t even mind that the CG is horrible. It’s not like H!P is known for having great CG. When you look at PVs like Mini Moni’s Mini Moni Bus Guide, and Pucchi Moni’s Pittari Shitai Xmas, the CG is 100 times better.
This PV is just absolutely incredible. And it has everything! Weird faces, Risa attacking godzilla with a suki beam, dancing in the clouds, Morning Musume sprouting wings, and minature Momusus flying out of Sayumi’s head. I am just so in love with how weird it is!

I wish the connection was better.

Random jumping chapstick. I’m sold already!

I find out hard to believe that chapstick made her lips that sheer and glossy. As if the rest of the PV makes sense either. XD

They way that they sing in their close-ups reminds me of what Arashi did in their Troublemaker PV.

I love that it’s the comis dream bubble. And it’s nice to see Reina with a different hairstyle. Even if it reminds me of Flying Get. XD

The floating heads are awesome.

But it of course reminds me of the Pon Pon PV.

And Aicle’s Que Sera Sera PV. (Random Jrock reference no one cares about. XD)

Reina does look pretty cute in this PV.

So does Sayumi. I think everyone’s outfits in this PV are awesome.

Kiss Kiss.

Riho’s outfot is one of my favorites.

I love that Erina’s head randomly appears.

I love they have Erina and Mizuki in the clouds too, so Aika’s not alone.

KY keeps standing out to me more and more. She looks adorable in this PV.

They keep shoving Erina and Sayumi together. I wonder if it’s because they want Eripon to have a similar personality as Sayumi’s?

I think it’s adorable that Aika’s glasses are in her hair.

Mizuki looks really adorable in this PV. I hate that they hardly ever show her.

At first I though Risa was trying to do the Glico Man pose, but then I realized it’s not the same. XD

Ai-chan’s outfit is fabulous, but it doesn’t fit in with the other outfits. And lolz at Zukki’s priceless face.

Riho looks adorable.

I don’t get what’s with the random marker.

Suki suki biimu dashimakuri na no ni! And I love that the dinosaur is dressed like a businessman. Lol.

Of course eating apples makes you sprout wings!



This PV was really in need of Zukki’s bright smile.

It’s raining Momusu.


9th gen up front!





Best face ever!

Fish face.

I hate that Reina just did A~in.


Oh, Zukki. XD

Quick everyone fly out of Sayumi’s hair.



I was really hoping for a better PV

A few weeks ago Morning Musume released the PV for Kono Chikyuu no Heiwa wo Honki de Negatterun da yo from their upcoming double A-side single. I know a few weeks in blog years seems like an eternity, but bear with with I’m still playing blog catch up here. Also, since then a 10 minute version of this PV was uploaded onto Morning Musume’s official youtube channel. But I’m only reviewing the 5 minute PV. A 10 minute PV review would take forever to write and be obnoxiously long. Which is why I didn’t make a new review for the 18 minute PV for AKB48’s Flying Get.

When I first saw the PV preview I was excited for how interesting it looked. But after I watched the whole PV I ended up being more dissapointed then excited. The PV is nothing but a dance shot and close-ups like their PVs always are. I actually do like the background they are dancing on. It’s so elaborate and weird, that it’s awesome. Yes, it is a big cheap looking, bother me. The girls looks flawless, and the outfits are gorgeous. But I’m still bored. If they only thing the PV has going for it is that the background has different fun elemets to it, there’s a problem. The PV is lazy. I can’t really explain it better than that. It’s like they thought because the background is interesting they didn’t need to really bother beyond that. It’s the same exact thing they did with Berryz Koubou’s Ryuusei Boy. Just shoved them in space and call it a day. Matsuura Aya’s Good Bye Natsuo PV had a space theme, with equally awful CG, and still managed to have other elements to it. It’s actually the perfect example of how you can take an incredibly low budget and still make a fun PV.

This scene is adorable. But kind of unnecessary. I wish they found a more intersting way conect the PV to the Kare to Issho ni Omise ga Shitai PV. I would have loved to see them contect the PVs like SNSD conected the Run Devil Run PV to the Oh! one.

Adorable sleeping Aika. I’m so sad that she’s hardly in this PV.

Zukki is so lovely. Her cuteness will surpass Sayumi’s in no time.

Am I the only one who’s just not interested in seeing their feet at all? And I forgot to mention that of course Reina is wearing leopard print.

Quick open the magic door! Unless this is an homage to the Twillight Zone, (I doubt Japan even knows what that is. XD) I honestly think it’s a bit lame. But I bet C.S. Lewis would have gotten a kick out of it.

Ai-chan looks stunning in this outfit.

I’m not gonna lie, cheap or not, I completely love the space background.

I always though Sayumi got stuck with the ugliest outfit. But if that weird necklace looking fabric wasn’t there, her outfit would be the best.

Hot. Ai-chan looking all sultry.

Riho looks super cute her. She always looks the best with her hair up.

Wow, Risa’s make up is very striking. Too bad her hairstyle makes her look washed up.

I hate the outfit they make Zukki wear just because she’s a little thicker than the other girls. I think she’ll forever be put in the outfits Risako and Massa wear.

Risa completely demands your attention here.

Hooray for the first apperance of Aika! Besides the beginning of course.

This reminds me of the Renai Revolution 21 dance.

Aika always look pretty in curls. It’s my favorite hairstyle on her.

Sayumi looks gorgeous.

Creepy extreme close-up.

I don’t get Aika haters. How does no one else see she’s as cute as a button?

Is that really Eripon? When did she get that pretty?

I fear that is is what post Ai-chan Morning Musume is going to look like.

This is literally the first time I noticed Mizuki in the entire PV. XD

Sometimes I wish Sayumi wasn’t so adorable. It makes it harder for me to not like her. (But she’s still my least favorite current Momusu member.)

Risa looks so awkward here that it’s adorable.

I can’t get over how incredible Erina looks.

I’m so bored by Reina. She does her hair the same exact way everytime! It does suit her, but come on change it up everyonce in a while.

Zukki’s bright smile can liven up any PV.

That’s the same move from Kimagure Princess!

This gives a whole new meaning to reach for the stars.

Morning Musume’s 47th single’s PV previews

This weeks episode of HelloPro Time showed the PV previews for Morning Musume’s double A-side 47th single, Kono Chikyuu no Heiwa wo Honki de Negatterun da yo/Kare to Issho ni Omise ga Shitai.

When I first saw the covers for this single a couple days ago I just assumed that the Kono Chikyuu no Heiwa wo Honki de Negatterun da yo was going to have a mature theme and the Kare to Issho ni Omise ga Shitai PV was going to have a fun and silly theme. Well, I have never been happier to be wrong about something before.
Both PVs have this silly, fun, carefree, and upbeat theme that Morning Musume’s PVs used to have. This single sounds a lot like the songs Morning Musume used to release and now the PV looks like the fun H!P PVs of the past. I am seriously getting flashbacks of Boogie Train 2003, Pittari Shitai Xmas, and Goodbye Natsuo.
Both PVs are far better than I could have imagined. And I think is finally solid proof that Morning Musume is really entering a new era. They are going back to happy, upbeat, cutesy, silly, and fun idol music. Which is something I have patiently waiting for since Resonant Blue came out.

I cannot wait for the full PVs to come out now!

Ai-chan’s solo Jishin Motte, Yume Motte, Tobidatsu Kara radio rip

The radio rip for Takahashi Ai’s solo song Jishin Motte, Yume Motte, Tobidatsu Kara featured on Morning Musume’s 47th single has been revealed. This song is only a B-side, however the full PV for this song will be included in the Limited Edition version of Morning Musume’s 12th album.

When I first listened to the song I was completely surprised. Since Ai-chan is the best singer, arguably, in Morning Musume’s history I was expecting a ballad. Something along the lines of Yume Kara Samete or Kioku no Meiro. But I actually really do like the sound of this song. It’s a nice soft rock song that sounds more like a B-side or album filler for Buono, than a song Ai would do. But Ai sounds amazing and her voice fits the song perfectly. Which just shows how Ai-chan can sing any genre of music perfectly. Which also reminds me how much it hurts to lose and amazing voice like hers.
The only real complaint I have about this song is it didn’t really use Ai’s voice to her full potential. Everyone knows the that Ai-chan has an incredible range. While listening to the song I kept waiting for some high notes to come out of nowhere. I am pretty sad that they never came.
Well, that and I can’t really stand that radnomly throughout the song she sings in a slightly annoying pitch. Everytime she does it, it’s like she’s trying to make her voice sound cuter than it actually is. I’ve already expressed before how much I can’t stand when she does that. It just knocks her incredible voice down a peg. Leave stuff like that to Sayumi. Not like Sayumi is ever doing it on purpose.

Having this song as a B-side just makes this upcoming single even better than it already is. I stand by my statement that this single is the best single Morning Musume has released in a while. This makes me hopeful that the 12th album will be just as good.
