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!

Wow, all I could think of through the whole thing was how garish the colours were. Not nice on the eyes.

I dunno I really liked the cute shots and the song

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.

I really don't get AKB48... but I am all about half naked ladies pillow fighting. *watches with the sound off*

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.

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.

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

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/
