“Guuzen no Juujiro”: Comfort Food

While a good number of AKB singles have been experimenting with different sounds, we could always count on the Undergirls’ b-sides to provide their staple idol sound we know and love. Simple and safe but catchy and impossible to hate, Undergirls songs have been my idol comfort food since ‘Kimi …

Why Hello There, Didn’t Notice You.

December of 2010 was a hectic one, and it seems that I’ve overlooked a debut release.  It’s another idol group that came out this year called “Sakura Gakuin”, with ten members.  It looks like the group is in it for the long haul, as their ages range from 11-14. Their …

The Power of Crowds.

A PV preview of SKE48’s new single, “Banzai Venus”, came out and it’s looking good: I have some reservations about having SKE reuse the “large crowd” spectacle so soon, right after “1, 2, 3, 4, Yoroshiku”; Yoroshiku was great because a mass spectacle with that scale was never seen before …

“Mirai Bowl”: Split Personality Mayhem.

One thing I always loved was Momoiro’s variety in everything they release. “Kaito Shoujo”, “Pinky Jones”, “Coconuts”, and “Kimi to Sekai” have completely different sounds, each paired with equally unique PVs. Of all the up and coming idol groups, Momoiro Clover’s over-the-top antics, fresh faces, and disarming charisma has them …

Watarirouka Hashiritai 7 PV Preview

A few weeks ago for the first time in my idol-fandom, I bought a single without knowing anything about it.  Watarirouka 7’s cover and novelty pushed me over the edge and I helplessly gave in. A Valentine’s Day-themed idol song?  What was I thinking? Well thank goodness the preview for …

Chance no Junban PV: A Fresh Look

Chance no Junban was met with little enthusiasm within the New School Kaidan Academy team.  The song wasn’t bad, but there wasn’t much for us to grab onto when it came to our tastes.  Even if we weren’t crazy about the song, there was something else to look forward to: …

Momoiro Clover Loves Licking…Cones.

Holding cones.  Licking cones.  Eating cones.  Kissing cones.  Licking each others’ cones.  They sure do love them.  Fellatio. what? What a horrible PV.  A half-brained concept, probably born from a scrawl on a piece of napkin with the words “licking”, “ice cream”, and “motorcycles”, is stretched over 4 minutes with …

SKE48’s B-sides are Peculiar.

SKE’s 4th single had a great, lively, energetic PV.  Later I came to realize that they had created 3 other PVs for the accompanying B-side tracks as well.  As a whole, they are less impressive than ‘1, 2, 3, 4 Yoroshiku!’ but it’s really nothing to complain about as having …
