All work and no plays makes for a dull PV

A few days ago the full PV for Momoiro Clover Z’s upcoming single, Roudou Sanka, was released. Which is pretty surprising since there haven’t been any radio rips or PV previews released.

I haven’t been shy in expressing my utter love and interest in Momoiro Clover Z. But I am going to say something about them I never thought would be possible. I am completely underwhelmed and disappointed by their new PV. This song is a work labor support song, and I think they took the theme of the song a little to literal. But Momoclo always does that. Make a song about being weekend heroines, wear power range-esque costumes in the PV. Make a song called future bowl, actually bowl in the PV. However, it completely worked in those occasions, because they took the theme and went completely over the top with it. Is bowling even remotely interesting? Aboslutely not. But Momoclo managed to inject fun into it anyway. And that’s really what this PV is lacking. The PV just follows the girls on a normal work day. Doing mundane tasks like working in an office, working on a construction site, riding the train, and going out to drink after work. The only actual fun element in this PV is the outfit they wear. But beyond that, there’s nothing else. This PV is really missing the spark and flare from past PVs. I’ve never seen Momoclo be anything but fill force. And to see them at only about 50% is sad.

Super serious, dramatic entrances do no work for MomoClo.

I love how their guitars have a clover and in their group colors.

The ties on their head is adorable.

Lol at Momoka stretching beforehand.

I hate when idol dances aren’t in unison. You now where 1 girl starts dancing, and when she’s finished the next girl begins, and it just continues on. Even though the dance is supposed to look like that, it just makes it completely awkward looking. I don’t know who thinks having each girl doing a different moces actually looks good.

Beyond that, the dance is still pretty awkward.

Answering the phone, how exciting. I don’t know how Kanako can contain herself.

Also, it kinda reminds me of Berryz Koubou’s Madayade PV.

I haven’t really had a chance to remtion this before, but I don’t like Shiori with short hair. I wish their album beat B’z now. XD

Ayaka is adorable.

It’s hard to make constrution work even mildly interesting.

Momoka is perfection. *O*

I love when they used heart shaped lighting for idol PVs.

Waiting for the bus, now that’s dynamic. I do realize that I’m supposed to relate to this PV. However, I don’t have a job, so it’s pretty much lost on me.


Momoka looks super adorable with braids.

Yakitori, looks good. At least, I think that’s chicken could be beef. XD


I’m always sad when I eat.

Um.. what?

WTF are thye drinking?

Momoka dance? We’ll let’s see it!

I’ve been lied to! XD


Aww Momoka.

Umbrella golf?


Cute pink megaphones.

It’s very Otsuka Ai-esque.

So, Momoka is afriad of turtles? But they should both realzie it’s not easy being green. XD


Momoiro Clover Z to release new single

It was announced recently that Momoiro Clover Z will be releasing a new single. The single is entitled Roudou Sanka and will be released on November 23rd. This was announced a week ago, but it completely slipped my mind.

With each single Momoiro Clover Z get higher and higher on my list of favorite idol groups. Which means I am of course extremely excited for them to being releasing another single. It does look like a very fun song about having a job. The title translates to Labor Force Support Song. And I will try my best to forget that that’s exactly what NEWS’s Weeeek was about. MomoClo is wearing suits in their promo pic, so I can even see it having a similar PV.
