The 11th single from Hello! Project’s Juice=Juice is both a first and a last: the first single with former Country Girls member Inaba Manaka and the last to feature leader Miyazaki Yuka and Yanagawa Nanami. “Bitansan”, the first promotional video from the triple A-side “Bitansan / Potsuri to / Good bye & Good luck!” looks like one of the finest video products released by H!P (at least in recent years). Shining blue outfits complement dramatic scenes of the girls in the night air of Tokyo. The beat pumps hard for this dramatic single about a lost love that never even got its proper start. Wide-angle and kaleidoscopic shots of the members add to the overall shine of the product as Manaka leads the choreography with Karin taking her usual place at center. “Bitansan” is visually dazzling, and I hope to see this same level of production in the remaining two PVs from the single. “Bitansan / Potsuri to / Good bye & Good luck!” goes on sale February 13, 2019.
