Graduating by the time you probably read this, Katsuta Rina gets her graduation single FINALLY. “Totteokino oshare wo shite (とっておきのオシャレをして)” will be available on ANGERME’s 27th single on November 20, 2019. Given the timing, I’d say Hello! Project NEEDED to crank out Rina’s PV on the now side. Considering her chosen future in fashion, the 2nd generation S/mileage member gets many outfits to try on in this jazzy arrangement. Adding extra sparkle to the song, Rina’s former groupmate Fukuda Kanon penned the lyrics to this swan song. The PV setup is simple: put Rina in front of the microphone and let her sing herself out in a dazzling array of clothes. And, the girl looks great in pretty much all of those outfits (which is your favorite?). Considering her long tenure in Hello! Project, it shouldn’t be surprising that Rina’s performances are amazingly consistent with arm and leg angles impressively hitting the same marks in every take. “Watashi wo Tsukuru no wa Watashi / Zenzen Okiagarenai Sunday” will be available in stores starting on November 20, 2019.
ANGERME (アンジュルム), formerly known as S/mileage (スマイレージ), is a Japanese pop group within Hello! Project. Originally started as an indies Hello Pro Egg unit in 2009, S/mileage was formed by four first generation members with the possibility that the line-up would be shuffled. The group graduated from Hello Pro Egg in 2010 and became full members of Hello! Project. The group changed their name in late 2014 to ANGERME to celebrate the third generation members and signify a turning point in the group’s image.
