Morning Musume Seishun Collection PV

I’ve been waiting for this. The PV for Morning Musume’s 43rd single Seishun Collection was released via a live stream during a live rehearsal of their play Fashionable.

Like I said when I posted the 30sec CM of the PV. I love this one. Both the PV and song. Morning Musume has transitioned from that “Love Song” era to a more genkier one.

The song still sounds like a mix of Shouganai Yume Oibito and Nanchatte Renai. But this definitely is a good one. It’s been a long time since I liked a Morning Musume song instantly. Normally I take time into liking it.

The outfits matches the blue sky and the green football field. The close up are cutes especially the one which shows each member jumping on a trampoline and at the second half of the song where they are holding signs.

The girl that stands out the most in my opinion is Sayu. She stands out because she’s the only one with a black hair in the group which makes her distinctively cute. Reina also caught my eye because her hair is all down which is different from her normal one. And she also doesn’t have hair glitters.

No one in the group is a line hog since all of them sang at unison in the chorus and in the verses, they sing by twos. The only member to get a solo are Ai, Reina, Kamei, and Risa. But even though they get a solo it’s only one.

Overall, I love the whole PV, song, etc. I just hope that this brings back Morning Musume to the top. At least reaching Number 1 again won’t hurt. But having a lot of sales isn’t bad either.

The release date is set for 6/9

Morning Musume – Seishun Collection 30sec PV preview

Finally! Morning Musume has released a 30sec preview of their upcoming 43rd single Seishun Collection. The single will be released on the 9th of June.

The PV is short. That’s why I can’t say much about it. But much like C-ute’s new single. It was filmed on a sporting arena. This time they used a soccer field/baseball field. The PV is cute I thought it was going to be something like Nanchatte Renai or Shouganai Yume Oibito because of the song having a similarity with those two. This is like the first time they released a happy single since Mikan(?). What I mean by happy is that the single isn’t about love or broken heart or anything like that. It’s fun, it’s different, and I enjoyed it. Yes it’s only a 30sec preview but I expect this will be something more. I really like how their outfits match the theme and background of the video. I still don’t like Gaki’s hair but how they styled it in this one is better.

Well I guess that’s it. See the 30sec preview yourself below!

Morning Musume – Seishun Collection Radio Preview!

I kinda forgot to post this one while almost all H!P related blogs like this one has posted about this already.

Well anyway here’s the radio rip of Morning Musume’s 43rd single Seishun Collection.

Hello! Sayunii said that the song sounded like Morning Musume’s Genki Pikka Pikka from their 10th album ’10 My Me’. But for me it kinda sounded a lot like a hybrid of Nanchatte Renai and Genki Pikka Pikka mixed with a bit of Shouganai Yume Oibito. Especially the piano solo in the middle of the song and the beginning intro of the song. But to be honest, I actually like this one better than the last two singles. Onna ga medatte naze ikenai took me a while to like it and Kimagure Princess is just chipmunk~y. This one is an instant like though it’s not as good as my favorite Morning Musume singles (which are The Peace, Koko ni Iruzee, Roman ~My Dear Boy~ and SYO).

Right now I’m just wondering how the video will look like since the song is somehow kinda connected with Morning Musume’s upcoming stage play (?). But I guess this would be better (in terms of sales and PV) than Onna ga Medatte Naze Ikenai since that song is actually pointless.

Released date is set for 6/9
