AKB48 "Heavy rotation" PV!

Finally the full PV's out!

WARNING: lots of fanservice, so don't watch it if your eyes can't take it. I'd say NSFW as well, although this makes it sound worse than it really is lol

I think it's the PV with the most fanservice I've ever seen, but at the same time, IT'S SO CHEERFUL COLOURFUL AND CUTE <333 I like it a lot :D

the obvious source XD;
EDIT PV was already removed, but here's a youku link thanks to xxxratedcunt:

EDIT2 reembedded. I wonder how long this one will last

EDIT3 that no one will read by now XD I just found out that the concept maker / director of the pv is uber famous woman photographer/director Ninagawa Mika (her blog entry about shooting the PV). She also shot Sakuran with Tsuchiya Anna, just for refernce. Also, the one who photographed Arashi for their last calendar (the one with the infamous lap dancer!Sho and Jun x Peacock shots, lol).
I should have known that was her style!

LOL like i said before this is pretty much a 5 minute gravure DVD with better music in the background. i'm kind of disappointed, really. i'm starting to like the song though

Seems like an inside look at every man's fantasy brothel.

omg i'm gonna die. this is over the edge. i cant breathe. im sorry but i hate them. they have to go this far to sell? would they really be nothing if there isnt much sex or skin at all?

dear god. and too much plagiarisms.

loveandcoffee 28th-Jul-2010 08:47 pm (UTC)
Sakura no shiori sold 300K copies and there wasn't either sex nor skin. XD

i like the song, but the PV.. i don't even~!
awkwardnormalcy 28th-Jul-2010 08:49 pm (UTC)
Wow, and I remember the days when Skirt, Hikari was shocking XD if only we knew then what we know now right~

or something, idk

Why can't they go back to putting out songs like Seifuku ga Jama Wo Suru?
lesth 28th-Jul-2010 08:53 pm (UTC)
OH YOU! <3
You should make me or find me some spam, I want to know more about AKB48 before looking at that mv to the end :3
lesth 28th-Jul-2010 08:51 pm (UTC)
I finally decided to learn learn more about AKB48, and weirdly I feel like that one might give me the wrong impressions from the start...
I'll just look at older pvs ^^

rebecka_jo 28th-Jul-2010 08:53 pm (UTC)
as a real lesbian, i want to find everybody involved in the making of this distaster, including those women in the group, and slap them across the face with my strong hand.
loveandcoffee 28th-Jul-2010 09:01 pm (UTC)
I am bi, and honestly don't find it so terrible :/ I thought it was really cute more than anything else. I deserve to be slapped too for enjoying it? :/
sakurablosom 28th-Jul-2010 08:56 pm (UTC)
Woah. Just...woah. These girls really don't have any shame...
Then again, it is showbiz~
rokuban 28th-Jul-2010 09:59 pm (UTC)
What is shameful about being cute?
sperm_violence 28th-Jul-2010 08:58 pm (UTC)
i couldn't ask for more
arlettylin 28th-Jul-2010 08:58 pm (UTC)
Wow, all I could think of through the whole thing was how garish the colours were. Not nice on the eyes.
bitesizedjuli 28th-Jul-2010 08:58 pm (UTC)
LOL I love this pv :D
It's soooo colourful and adorable!!! ♥♥
All the girls look so beautiful and cute ~~

I dunno I really liked the cute shots and the song

but the rest... dayumn gurls

Also why on earth is this called Heavy Rotation?!
loveandcoffee 28th-Jul-2010 09:04 pm (UTC)
the chorus say "I need you, I love you etc etc, inside my head the music doesn't stop, heavy rotation~"
I don't know if it has the same meaning elsewhere (it may be one of those made up English words?) but in Japan it means a song that's played a lot on the radio, therefore it's like they're saying "I'm thinking of you all the time like a radio plays a song on heavy rotation". More or less.
fireatwill 28th-Jul-2010 09:02 pm (UTC)
I really don't get AKB48... but I am all about half naked ladies pillow fighting. *watches with the sound off*
isolated_killer 28th-Jul-2010 10:24 pm (UTC)
XDDD Yes, omg.
brighty11 28th-Jul-2010 09:02 pm (UTC)
this color scheme is not good. leader looks like some trash. and acchan? ugh. bad photoshop job. oh yeah the song is pretty meh too.

rrrgh back to ponytail please.
amaelamin 28th-Jul-2010 09:08 pm (UTC)
Very cute, even if they hit every trope in the fanservice book, but I kept thinking I'd like it so much better if the lighting wasn't so terrible. I mean, the set itself is obviously really colorful! Why does everything look brown?
kimivalkyrie 28th-Jul-2010 09:13 pm (UTC)
THIS. Terrible, terrible lighting.
dokidays 28th-Jul-2010 09:15 pm (UTC)
i mean im just thinking about reality here. if all we're gonna get all the time is a group that gets paid so much for fulfilling every guy's fantasy then what the hell's gonna happen to real music or real deal artists? and don't talk to me about the singles or stuff that don't have fanservice and they sell well. its just the otakus willing to spend $ or people who know they'd get more boobies if they search up what's behind their non nc-16 stuff.
then isn't it okay for me to call them um whats that oh
dont even bother bombarding me or prove to me these girls are real. oh hell yea they're real. too real i would bother looking up their panties to see if the sun shines from their cooter.
i think i know what's really sexy and top of the charts without having to go to this extent. i just knew this was coming and they were gonna go for the Heavy Rotation.

liime_arix 28th-Jul-2010 09:21 pm (UTC)
Really, now? The girls don't only appeal to men, they also have a female fanbase of a little girls to young adults. Plus, what is slutty in western terms, is not necessarily slutty to Japan.

But yeah, go on believing what you want...
liime_arix 28th-Jul-2010 09:17 pm (UTC)
Aw, so cute! But the colors, they need better lighting.
Seriously, I love this. I might actually buy it XD
awkwardnormalcy 28th-Jul-2010 11:59 pm (UTC)
This! Btw who is in your icon? I see it on Arama all the time but because of the weird angle I'm not sure if its Aika from Momusu, but I'm pretty sure its not >.<

Kudos to your well thought out defenses of AKB above btw \o/\o/
