I thought MAYU will be back for this single..
KAREN and Risa's voice sounds kindda similar to me

Flower PV are too Reina-centric.Or is it just me?

MAYU is still too weak to perform and keep up with the pace of the whole All-country promos. Mononucleosis is a tricky disease, it could kill you if you don't rest properly and recover fully. I know because I've got a couple of friends who caught and it was a pain for them to get through. MAYU wasn't feeling strong enough to join them, so they all discussed it and decided she better waited to come back. She also stated herself that she didn't want to bring the group down because she's not at her best right now.

lol flower's song and pv >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> happiness's like holy shit.

ALL OF THIS, although I think Happiness will do better for being "brighter".

mte to everything. Sad truth about the sales...

FLOWER is winning so far in terms of digital and youtube views...Let's see how the sales go....

I consider myself more of a Happiness fan but Flower are slaying and taking names here so my vote goes to them.

Somehow I feel like Taiyou to Himawari resembles 3JSB's Hanabi a lot. And I love it.

Happiness though...

Thank you, couldn't remember what song it reminds me of!
doramaonna 10th-Jul-2013 12:52 pm (UTC)
Flower song and pv, LOVE!!! Happiness song for me has winter-ish melody!
thomaswilmoore 10th-Jul-2013 01:28 pm (UTC)
WOW that Flower PV is amazing o.o

The Happiness one is not really my cup of tea.

Flower is slayin' OMG I just love their style

I'm a little embarrassed for happiness tbh It's not that the song is terrible per se, but the song in combination with the styling & the dancing is a hot mess. I wrote on Twitter that they'd slay with a song like Namie Amuro's 'Hands On Me' or THE SECOND'S new song 'Survivors'. They need an upbeat dance track instead of this bubblegum mess that they keep being handed.

Flower on the other hand is really impressive. Beautiful song, beautiful dresses, beautiful dancing - love it!

I like FLOWER PV better, but Happiness song ain't that bad. It reminds me of older J-Pop songs, more 1990's, and it just fits with their usual brighter and cheerful image. Maybe the PV is the thing that lacks the most, but the song, I don't find it that bad.
eishastan 10th-Jul-2013 09:59 pm (UTC)
I like Happiness pv and LOVE Flower's but the songs couldn't get more basic and boring, happiness can do better and flower has always sounded that generic to me so idc.
kjc48 10th-Jul-2013 10:51 pm (UTC)
I'm forever Flower bias! <3 I tend to like everything Happiness does, but this seem really basic...

P.S. How many ppl were vocals in Taiyou to Himawari???
reveriexz 11th-Jul-2013 11:10 am (UTC)
Three. This time they include Ichiki Kyoka as a vocalist too (Normally she's a performer).
kjc48 11th-Jul-2013 08:47 pm (UTC)
I knew their was something different this time. I'm happy for her (go get your lines grl).
pumpkinskin 11th-Jul-2013 04:22 am (UTC)
I love Flower's song a lot. The PV started off looking cheap but it got so much better. I need to learn their names forreals
whited_79 12th-Jul-2013 02:43 am (UTC)
You can start with the lead singers. Reina is the main vocal, after that Kyoka (in this song), and the other one providing the harmony is Chiharu.

Then only work your way to the dancers lol.
pumpkinskin 13th-Jul-2013 04:27 am (UTC)
haha I did the opposite and went crazy on Shuuka Fujii's tags on tumblr
whited_79 13th-Jul-2013 05:30 am (UTC)
well I don't blame you, Shuuka is gorgeous! do you know that her little sister Karen is in Happiness?
pumpkinskin 13th-Jul-2013 05:57 pm (UTC)
yes! i was really surprised, they don't look a like.
do u know if there are forums/fansites that do translations of the shows they appear in?
whited_79 14th-Jul-2013 03:34 am (UTC)
And do you know that their older brother is in JE? He's a Kansai Jr though so it's hard to debut. They're all gorgeous though!

Well usually I just went on their threads at onehallyu for info.

I've always preferred Happiness over Flower but Taiyou to Himawari is just sooo pretty and perfect (except for too much Reina, I like her but Chiharu should also get some limelight not just Reina and Kyoka.

Happiness' song is ok but I'm not a fan of it...

As for the Boyfriend song, I prefer the Moonlight version, I like the blending of their voices in that version...(the only thing that should have been switched is the auto-tuned like boyfriend part in Flower's version...>_<)
whited_79 12th-Jul-2013 02:40 am (UTC)
I love FLOWER's song and PV! Happiness has a nice PV too but the song is a bit too generic (for me). And besides, Reina's voice trumps them all! XD
deepriver888 12th-Jul-2013 08:27 am (UTC)
really? i never found reina's voice appealing actually. her tone is nothing special, and sometimes her voice is grating. might just be me though xD
whited_79 13th-Jul-2013 05:16 am (UTC)
Oh no, I didn't mean her tone, I meant her singing...Singers with good tone are not necessarily good singers, and good singers don't necessarily have nice tone...People may not like Reina's tone but she's seriously a good singer.
hlilacism 12th-Jul-2013 01:33 pm (UTC)
Flower all the way!
The dancing scenes in Happiness' PV didn't fit the song at all.
