Hey! Say! JUMP’s new PV leaves me super impressed

The full PV for Hey! Say! JUMP’s upcoming new single, Super Delicate, has recently been released.

After watching the full PV it seems that the PV is just as cheaply made as the PV preview from ZIP showed. The entire PV only has 2 equally simple sets. And yet, I cannot find one fault for the PV. Yes, it’s a cheaply made PV, but it’s done in such a way that you don’t even really notice. The PV is still very interseting and entertaining. And that’s mostly due to the fact that they really used the main set to their full advantage. The main set isn’t really much to look at. It’s basically a giant white runway with these weird abstract, I’m going to call them towers, periodically placed throughout the set. On an all black background with dozens of white lights. And the background and lighting are pretty much cheap sets 101. H!P has done several sets just like that when they can’t afford anything better. And Hey! Say! JUMP probably would have been able to have a better set if they didn’t insist on making horribly cheap PVs for Wonderland Train and Su.Ri.Ru which are have the same awful fanmade feel to them that the Aing – Aishiteru PV did. The set is white so I guess it does have a very crisp and polished feel to it. And it makes the brightly dressed Hey! Say! JUMP pop. But at the same time it’s all white which is bland and boring in itself. But like I said they really do take full advantage of the set by using it in two other ways. The first way is obviously the members walking down it like a runway. Which I actually like because it shows off the members. But it is a little silly when you think about it because it has absolutely nothing to do with the song. And the other way is used for group close-ups. And I gotta hand it to them they really try to fool the viewer into thinking it’s a different set by lowering the lighting. I also really like the close-up set. It kinda of looks like funhouse mirrors but done in a better way.

The dance for this is also incredible. It’s perfectly in synch and the moves are really dynamic. However, this PV doesn’t really show too much of the dance which is kind of sad. And they mainly focus on the worst part of the dance which is the stupid eyes over the face move. And they don’t show the Yamajima move, what’s up with that? I seriously recommend watching their Shounen Club performance of this song if you want to see the dance, they totally killed it. I posted it on tumblr a few weeks ago, hopefully it didn’t get deleted yet.

But much like with any cheap PV the best parts of the PV are the members themselves. They look absolutely incredible. Well, most of them do. I have no idea what they were thinking when they did Hikaru’s, Keito’s, and Inoo’s hair. They look ridiculous. And the guys are wearing 2 outfits that are really great. Suits and more casual outfits. And they are styled pretty nicely for the most part. Expect Chinen’s casual outfit makes him look like a clown, Hikaru’s pants are disgusting in each outfit, and who really wears ascots ever? But besides that they look incredible. Especially my beloved Yuto. He looks amazing in both outfits, and he co-leads the PV with Ryosuke. The amount of Yuto screen time in this PV is amazing. Yes, Inoo and Keito only get like 3 seconds of screen time to compensate for it. But I’m not going to even pretend that I care about that. Yuto hasn’t gotten this much screen time since Mayonaka no Shadow Boy, and I’m going to relish every second of it. Especially since he’ll most likely be taking his usual postion in PVs for their next single, lurking in the back or just off to the side.

They focus way too much time on the title screen.

Ryosuke tries too hard to make and intense face, but it just looks awkward.

He should just focus on looking pretty.

I’m always impressed by this move.

What a great scene. Who doesn’t want to just see their pants?

Ryosuke’s conceited pose.

I don’t get why Hikaru keeps doing his hair like this, as if it looks good.

Cheap lighting 101.

No, seriously it is.

Work it Yuto. XD

Modeling in a PV will forever remind me of Morning Musume’s Onna ga Medatte Naze Ikenai PV.

I absolutely love the close-up scenes set.

Yuto. *O*

Nice outfit, but I cannot stand Chinen.

I like Hikaru’s outfit from the waist up. But what’s going on with the rest? Baggy pants tucked into boots, I can’t even with this.

Cute.

I love Yabu.

Takaki has the best outfit.

Stupid move.

Yuto looking adorable during the dance scenes.

Chinen’s outfit is just awful.

Adorable.

Hot.

Intense close-ups of the towers. It’s hilarious that these abstract pieces get more screen time than Inoo and Keito do. Lol.

Daiki looks so good here.

The sitting down reminds me of

NEWS’s Hoshi wo Mezashite PV.

Yabu’s a cutie.

That hair. o_O

Cute.

And that hair. o_O

At least Keito does have normal hair at one point. He looks cute here, too bad you hardly see him.

Can I just laugh that the group close-ups are split by having Hey! Say! 7 in one group and Hey! Say! BEST in another, like they should be, and that instead they are split by popularity? This group features the most popular members.

What’s up with Hikaru’s pants? Are we in the 80’s all of a sudden?

Adorable.

Oh, Yuto. I love how the mirrors shows a different expression.

Hot.

Hikaru is still cute under all that ugly hair.

Oh look, they finally show the least popular members group full on.

Why do they insist on showcasing their worst move?

Cute.

I don’t get why they show the set floating at the end.

Hey! Say! JUMP-Super Delicate PV preview

A PV preview for Hey! Say! JUMP’s upcoming single, Super Delicate, was just released.

I am a tad biased here, but the PV looks absolutely perfect. It just looks incredible so far and so much better than I was expecting. After I saw the covers I knew that the PV was going to be good, but it looks better than I imagined. Just amazing. The guys look super goreous in it. Well, most of them do. Chinen’s outfit is ridiculous and Inoo has this weird hair going on. But other than that there aren’t really any faults. The dance set is a little bit boring, but the abstract white pieces on the sides do jazz the space up a bit.

This preview is insanly short. And since it is a preview and a short making of we only really get to see the dance. Which is incredible I might add. The sharpness of it and the precision is just amazing. But the last 20 seconds of the preview does play some more of the PV in the background, and you can see that the PV is more than just dancing. Their close-ups seem to be in this glass room and there are also scenes with them wlaking on a runway.

But hands down the absolute best part of this preview is the amount of Yuto in it. I don’t really hide that Yuto is my favorite member of JUMP on this blog. And I couldn’t be happier that Yuto is the co-center. I honestly had my doubts he would be since they neglected him in the song. It’s about time he’s in the spotlight in JUMP again. A few years ago Yuto used to be everywhere and was in the center all the time. But over the years Chinen has slowly been taken over his 2nd place position. Which I of course can’t stand. But at least he’s front in center for this single.

Hey! Say! JUMP-Super Delicate preview

Recently a short radio rip of Hey! Say! JUMP’s Super Delicate was released.

I gotta tell you, I love this song more and more every time that I hear it. The music is just absolutely perfect. It blends heavy dance music with some salsa influences thrown in. It honestly sounds like a mix between Over, Beat Line, and Shinku. I love that the beginning of the song starts with a really sweet and soft note from Ryosuke, accompanied by equally soft music. And I also love that that soft music lingers for a few second as the heavier music of the verse builds. For the most part the song is sung very softly which is a great contrast to the heavy dance instrumental. And it does lighten the song a bit. And of course the chorus of the song is amazing. The music and singing really pick up, and there are a lot of great extended notes. The song has a very mature sound and it also sounds very passoniate. Like the members are singing this with a lot of emotion.
The only thing that could make this song absolutely perfect is if the line distribution was even remotely fair. Yet again the only person that gets a solo is Ryosuke. Hey! Say! JUMP has 10 members, I’m really getting sick with just hearing one of them. Pretty much every other Johnny’s group lets the other members get lines. Except for Kisumai, but even then it’s 3 members that get lines. Yes, Ryosuke is an amazing singer, but he’s not the only amazing singer in Hey! Say! JUMP. Takaki’s voices is absolutely perfect for this type of song. And if you listened to Beat Line you know that Hikaru’s and Yuto’s are also perfect for this type of song. It seems like whenever Ryosuke is in a drama they use it as an excuse for him to get all the solo lines. I think the infamous Hitomi no Screen proves that. But the real ridiculous part of this is that both Ryosuke and Yuto are in the drama. I get that Ryosuke is the lead, but Yuto gets nothing for being in the drama too? It’s really getting stale only hearing one member. What’s wrong with having another song as fair as Arigatou ~Sekai no Doko ni Itemo~? Well, even in Arigatou Inoo, Keito, and Ryutaro were shafted. But 8/9 would be a massive improvement.

Hey! Say! JUMP to release new single

Now, this news has been floating around for weeks, but it was basically a rumor since it wasn’t confirmed. And I didn’t want to blog about this until it was 100% confirmed. And it was finally officially confirmed a few days ago. Hey! Say! JUMP will be releasing their 9th single. The single is entitled Super Delicate and will be released on February 22nd. The song will be used as the theme members Yamada Ryosuke’s and Nakajima Yuto’s drama Risou no Musuko.

I’m really excited that Hey! Say! JUMP is releasing a new single. Since they are my second favorite Johnny’s group I’m always excited for something new. Especially now that with this new release I can put Magic Power behind me and pretend it doesn’t exists. Though I do admit I wish it was a new album instead, since it’s going on 2 years since their last one and the singles are piling up.
I did listen to the concert rip of and the short previews of this song. And I really do like the mature theme of the song. But I won’t comment on it any further until I can get my hands on a radio rip.

Here are some previews of the song.
