The new 7-person lineup of Yumemiru Adolescence gets a debut with the spring titled “Sakura”. The cell phone formatted PV features a variety of camera tricks that I’m sure some of you are going to try the next time you grab your trusty iPhone. Cameras zoom, film is reversed, stop animation and clever edits break the laws of physics, and we get a good look at one of the best looking idol groups out there (to my eye anyways). Orange Range’s NAOTO gives the group an upbeat song and arrangement that feels like a the party we see in the video clips. No written work about “Sakura” would be complete without a mention of the new members Yuki, Saya, and Hanon. Hanon and Saya look noticebly younger than the other members, although the newness of their idol personalities might be coloring my vision. Overall, the new girls get a good deal of screen time and seem to be well integrated into the group already. “Sakura” gets a March 14, 2018 release date, and I’ll see you there with my copy in hand.[2018.06.18 Update: This PV is no longer region blocked]
