Noto Arisa, the onetime Hello! Project / Ongaku Gatas talent, released her PV for the song “Hoshinowa” a few hours ago. The PV features Arisa on a photojournalistic journey through smalltown/anytown Japan. Rivers are crossed, elevated vantage points are appreciated, and temple bells are definitely rung. The song is actually fantastic with a hooked chorus and nice instrumental work. Noto Arisa’s next release “Bokura no Shiranai Monogatari”, from which “Hoshinowa” comes, gets an October 12 release from Village Vanguard Music, but I can’t locate any links from the usual channels. Maybe some kind person can link it in the comments?
