the short haired girl looks like she has talent to become a bully lol.

the song is nice - definitly different than anything I've heard from there before - but I'm not happy that Rinapuu and Kanana didn't have any solo lines. S/mileage used to be so fair with line distribution, but it looks like it's changing. yes, I know that unfair line distribution is nothing new in H!P, but I had hoped S/mileage would continue with at least one line per girl :(

the costumes are adorable though.

At least you can take solace in knowing it's not as bad as Morning Musume's distribution?
lkwreader 12th-Apr-2012 05:53 pm (UTC)
this is true, but part of what depresses me about it is that Rinapuu can actually sing better than Meimei, and it doesn't hurt my ears to listen to her. sure, maybe she doesn't always have high notes, but her voice is bearable.

Momusu's is pretty bad, and I was actually happy with PPU because Mizuki had solo lines, but then I listen to Renai Hunter and all I hear is Riho? I mean, I like Riho too, but I felt like we were finally getting better with line distribution, and then back to crap with the next single. although, I have to give it some credit since it's Gaki's grad single, so I knew she would have a lot of lines.

Since it sounds like Tsunku hacking up a hairball, you can blame him. He loved it so much he just has to reuse it.

Epic song, bad pv :/
S/mileage's pvs used to be so epic but that changed after Yuuka left :/

Ayacho, got like almost no solo lines and Rinapuu and Kananan got no one?

Rina is ACTUALLY a BETTER SINGER than Meimei.


Is almost like °C-ute old days or Momosu's Resonant Blue

FUCK THIS SHIT! *Ragequits*

So pressed right now.

I'm pressed like a fine linen shirt as well.

I LOVED THE SONG when I first heard the radio rip, but this bland PV killed it for me. And I love everything S/mileage has done.

The only thing that salvages a little for me is all the camtime Ayacho haves, but I don't understand why they had to strip of the dresses/covers like that, it was a little too wrong, and pointless, it makes the pv a little more cheap in a perversted way, I was expecting some beach scenes with the girls playing, being in "bikini" indoors is, well, weird.

Someone on H!O commented about how they felt as though the girls were freezing the entire time because of the bland, gray overcast feel of the PV. Everything is so dull and washed out and the lighting is god awful. I was expecting bright and summery. I know UFA likes to hoard their money and can't be fucked to film on location anymore, like at the beach or even around a pool, but I know for sure they can shell out some money for some decent lighting and a more vibrant set. They are dancing inside of a giant gray box in summer.

for. fucking.
And I can't even comment on the opening. That just screamed "jailbait" and it was a little weird. Rina and Kananan still aren't singing, and even Dawa is starting to be bumped right off of her thrown by Kanon, Meimi, and Akari. I love me some Akari and Kanon, but gdi, they were everywhere in this PV. I felt like we hardly heard or saw anyone else. This PV can suck my big toe. UFA is trippin' if they think anyone except dedicated wota and overseas fangirls who like everything to feel like part of the fandom are gonna take this and be pleased.

Totally agree, I was like damn it, you film the girls in beach all the fucking time for photobooks, why don't you do so now that it's actually logical and in theme with the song to do so?

And the intro threw me out of my comfort zone to be honest, at first it was all pretty nice with Ayacho listening to the seashell ...and then they strip in a lightly suggestive way, I'm not a prude or so, but Jesus, Meimei is 12/13 and that was totally pointless.

And Jesus!, couldn't they spare a chorus for Ayacho? Kanon sings the three chorus for chrisakes!, and they could at least give the "mou ikai!"'s to kananan and Rinapuu, I'm really, disappointed, I mean this single is going to have a duet b-side for Kanon and Meimei, as if it wasn't enough spamming them.

Glad I'm not the only one who feels this way. This single was going to determine whether I still liked the group or not, and I'm really hoping that the writers get their act together for the next single, or I'm just gonna stop caring about S/mileage :/ I hated this PV and song, it's one big mess IMO

also speaking of meimi, i thought she was adorable until she cut her bangs. now she looks like any other girl imo
