A few H!P PVs have been released lately (okay, a couple of these are old, but I’ve been wanting to review them), and to save you clicks and me time, I’m rounding them all up into one post. Remember, I already warned you that my patience with H!P is gone.
Morning Musume – Pyocopyoco Ultra
When I heard the radio rip for this song, I actually really liked it. It’s really catchy on it’s own and it showcases the new members, which although isn’t great yet, it’s smart on Tsunku’s part. If all of the lines are given to Reina or Mame, then it’ll be a PAIN once they graduate (such as, I can imagine, it is now divvying up all of Ai’s parts).
Then the covers and group concept pictures were released.
Then the MV.
Can I emphasize how much I have been disappointed with Morning Musume lately? Leave it to Tsunku to take a perfectly good song and
fuck duck it up. To save an incredibly long rant, here’s the one good thing about this PV: Gakisan. She really, really shines among the rest. And I really love that her costume is different, it really shows that she’s the queen duck. Otherwise, yeah. There’s nothing good about this PV. It makes me sick to my stomach. I’ve tried about 5 times and I still cannot watch it all the way through.
Tsunku, little girls are already fans of Morning Musume. They will listen anyway. Especially since you’re adding kindergartners to the group. You need to be targetting the market that is leaning to AKB: young adults and the older male fans. You used to do it, and it worked really, really well. Don’t know why that’s changed, but he is really throwing a great group down the tubes. Just because the new members are young doesn’t mean they have to be dancing in duck outfits. Seriously.
