this looks like it should've been released before christmas or something.

Agree with comment above, isnt it too late to release a Christmas song now?
Anyway, where is the main singer of Happiness? I didnt follow them anymore but I still like that girl, but I cant find her in this PV. Or maybe I didnt realize her?
ichigobabe 21st-Jan-2013 06:34 am (UTC)
Only some of the girls get to promote with E-girls, now that Bunny is added. If everyone appears, it'll get too crowded.

So yeah, Happiness' Mayu isn't in the video. The last video she appeared in was One Two Three.

I realllyyyy really like Mayu though :(
queryz 21st-Jan-2013 09:16 am (UTC)
Ah her name's Mayu? XD Yeah I also like her a lot >
ichigobabe 21st-Jan-2013 09:26 am (UTC)
Yeah :)

Oh yeah, she's also sick with infectious mononucleosis since August. I don't know if she's fully recovered though but she's doing well.
lihuen 21st-Jan-2013 09:35 am (UTC)
If I'm not wrong, Mayu is sick, and that's why also Happiness haven't released anything new since their album. They're waiting for her complete recovery
ashmauve 21st-Jan-2013 01:54 pm (UTC)
I miss her too!

Not too excited about this, to be honest. I love them of course, but this is...well... Christmas-ish and not really interesting in my eyes.

Why does everyone think this sounds like a Christmas song? It's the theme to "The Neverending Story" AKA this best fantasy film of the 80's. And is now the theme to AKIRA's new drama, hence why it wasn't released during Christmas, since "Biblia Koushouten" just started last week.

BUT

WHY DO YOU LOVE THIS SONG SO MUCH JAPAN? WHYYYYYYYYY?????

I mean, at least this time they went and added Japanese lyrics, and I know that since the show takes place in a book store it's all fitting and shit.

But still Japan.

WHY THIS SONG??

Might as well:



Bask in the 80's of it all.

Nah, I know the original.
I don't fully like what they've done with it this time.

Some vocals, I don't like how those are performed. The original song is peacefull and that's what I like from it, their vocals at some parts are a little bit loud and like instead of singing they were yelling.

The beats, now I've heard more than the chorus, sound better, but the bells are indeed making everyone else believe this is a Christmas song XD

I'm just glad that weird dubstep stutter beat at the end of the first episode wasn't actually the intro. to the song. Also, given the overall techno tone of the soundtrack this song fits in really well.

I've never really been a huge fan of the song, but I didn't mind the DDR version.

yeah, I like the beats better now I've heard a little bit more. First I only heard the chorus and I was a little bit annoyed with it being that much hyped up. But the vocals are the weakest part I think. They start singing fine and then it's like they're singing any other song, like this was Celebration or something, when the vocals should be more like Still ><

I think for once, they had the chance to try a different concept, be mysterious, and add a more flawless but slow dance, and they ruined it. But well, I blame it on what the audience wants, and it seems marketing E-Girls as any other idol large unit is working for them. Otherwise, they wouldn't be on last year's Tokyo Idol Festival, I guess.

I loved the song back in the day, I've heard more hyped up versions but those were to the beats, the vocals remained being flawlessly peaceful.
exdream1999 Re: I AM THE ONLY ONE OLD ENOUGH TO KNOW WHERE THIS SONG IS FROM?21st-Jan-2013 12:58 pm (UTC)
Yeah, it's kind of weird to hear the vocals sped up, but giving how they also added Japanese lyrics too, I'm not so weirded out about it, also EXILE did something similar with WHAM's Last Christmas, so...

But really, it could have been so much worse, so far the episode of the show ends with someone going "hit it with the beat" (well, something with beat), but it's all warped and jumps up from really high to really low and then this really hard tempo starts up. It's hard to explain, but it's really jarring and, like, the song sounds so much better when it kicks in right after that. It's sounds positively serene next to that hot mess. (I'm also made because all the other music in the show is so good, why did that hot mess make it in?)

hahaha who knows, maybe the whole song has a break? And that hot mess could be it.

I also know the original. It's a gorgeous song! I used to dance to this song <3

However, the PV and the way the girls perform the song reminds me of Christmas ^^

Something about their outfits feel like an homeage to the Childlike Empress to me. I don't why, but they do.
rainawallis Re: I AM THE ONLY ONE OLD ENOUGH TO KNOW WHERE THIS SONG IS FROM?21st-Jan-2013 05:47 pm (UTC)
Nope. You're not. :)

But, I actually love this song, and this version of it is very pretty too.

I'm a fan of E-girls, but I don't like the video. I guess I was expecting something more. I know they want to appeal to the masses, but I wished they did something a little more edgy.
love323able 22nd-Jan-2013 03:26 am (UTC)
i really thought i was going to like it, since i liked the preview from the drama.. but i don't. the girls look great tho

i hope they get to release as happiness,flower,dream more
since they haven't and i really dislike watching a crowd of girls :/
i hate big groups, am barely remembering SNSD girls...
lilly0 22nd-Jan-2013 04:08 pm (UTC)
This!
Love these girls, but I prefer them in their individual groups. I like E-Girls, but I prefer it if it was more balanced and they would release just as much stuff as invidual groups as with E-Girls.

I'm so bad with too many girls in a group :D I can hardly remember faces and names then (It's easier for me with boy-groups though)
