The short version of the PV for Hey! Say! JUMP’s upcoming single, Magic Power, has been released. It was actually released yesterday, but I didn’t blog about it because I expected the full PV to have been released today. Obviouly that’s not the case.
It’s nice to see that there are more things going on in PV than just them dancing in shiny suits. Even though I’m not into the theme, they are really sticking to it. And there’s a lot of 70’s elements to it. I won’t really go into anymore detail beyond this because with 4 days to the release date we can expect the PV any day now. So, you’ll just have to wait for my full PV review.
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.
