Zassou no Uta - Because Buono can't Get Enough of It

All opinions of this PV are my own. In no way am I associated with Buono (I wish) or Up-Front Agency. I just enjoy giving my opinion to the public :D
Quite recently, Buono! released their first song and PV that wasn't released under the anime show they were created to sing for, Shugo Chara. Now no longer are they an anime group, but a new talent under the Up-Front Agency banner. This isn't surprising - Buono! is highly popular and loved all around the world, so it's a great thing that they have become official now. What a great start to 2011 after that kick to the balls of Ai leaving, right? 8D

Firstly, this song is pretty awesome; I didn't expect it to sound the way it did, so I was pleasently surprised (I refused to listen to 30 second previes so I awaited the PV) and I feel that the PV is really nice, too. It gave me a smile or two, because Airi's smile in this is pretty infectious IMO. Either way, this PV paired with this song is a great mix. They really go together.

 At the start you get the obvious group shots, with Airi (Oh you Diva) in the middle, and a few lights flashing. It seems that these girls are in a car park, and behind them, they have a band. Going all out eh, Buono?

Now what Hello! Pro PV wouldn't be complete without a close-up shot? Look at Airi! Her smile! So gorgeous! And Miyabeam is winking at me ;) yaaay! And Momoko.... erm yeah.

I'm a bit meh on Miyabeam's hair right now, but I like it; it's cute and mature for sure :)

o-O trailer?
ZOMG! MIYABEAR! 8D I am digging the hair ;) She's gorgeous that girl is!

I would have totally missed this picture out but Momoko just looks funny - she totally ruins the picture with that forced smile, but Airi also forces it. And I won't say what I think Momoko is doing.
Back to the car park :3

Airi looks good like that :3 And it actually looks like she's fixing a car o-O

Sadly, Miyabeam gets the boring one - NOT ENOUGH OF HER FACE IS SHOWN! But I can't say the same for Momoko... >.> why could SHE have been given the job where you barely see her face?

I seriously don't like her :/

Loving how Miya's hair is bouncing about xD She is seriously gorgeous in this!

I really like the camera angles in this PV, seeing as they're not just straight forward up-close shots. Sadly, the second one isn't a great look for Airi... but it's better than the other one I coulda capped for you xD

Momoko: Duh-HUUUURAiri: Lalalala~Miyabeam: ZOMG SHINEE COIN!


Airi hogs like 50% of this PV with her face, but I am not gonna complain <3 she owns it

Miyabeam: Gimme a hug, Airi! <3Airi: What chuu want a hug for?Momoko: ...

All their smiles are so grogeous here <3

OKEI! 8D Man they both look damned good :P

I absolutely LOVE this part of the PV because of how spacky Airi is xD she is just truly enjoying herself and you can see she is! It's like she's actually singing along to a song on the radio. Airi love <3

And now some Miyabeam love ;)

Aye aye, Captain!

Even though it's dark, you can really tell that Miyabeam's going for it! She's jumping and spinning <3 LOVE TO MIYA!

This closeup is LOVE!!! <3

Aww <3

I actually really liked this bit where Momoko just rises up xD

Awww so cute <3

And so it ends with a PEACE!

Okay so after watching that I have come to these conclusions;

1) I have a new found love for Miyabi <3
2) I still dislike Momoko
3) Airi is AWESOME in Buono!

This PV rocks! It's got a good amount of Close-ups, sweeping shots, group shots, random Mechanicy shots and friendly shots. It's a fun and quirky PV that shows a random Airi and a beautiful Miyabi. I LOVE this PV, it makes me smile, and it makes me want to dance and head bang a little.

The only problem I have with it is Momoko and how BORING she is. Her close ups just consist of bobbing about and singing whilst Miyabi and Airi actually move around more and use their hands (not in that way you pervs). I don't mind Momoko, honestly, she's just not my type of idol.

ANYWAY this PV is just a bundle of cute and fun <3 Go watch it!

Till next time ;)

Okai Chisato: Chisato [Making Of]

Okay so I went onto youtube and just checked to see if the Making Of of Okai Chisato's PB had been released via youtube - and yes, it has! HAPPY DANCING TIME!

I have actually watched the RAW version of this, because I downloaded an MP4 version somewhere before 2011 began, but I stupidly deleted it >.< Then again I like to understand videos that consist of talking as well as pretty video footage of Okai Chisato (om nom)

In all honesty I love this video - I do find their Making Of's for PB's slightly boring as it's basically music and them talking, but I also like to LOOK at the girls in all their glory as they model, and Okai is no exception. This is her first PB and she just shows how spectacular she is and how well she portrays herself as a model.

Thankfully the version I will be putting onto this post is a subbed version, subtitled by the lovely people at Hello! Fansubs~ Man I love their subs - just wonderful :3

I am just gonna add the video - I don't think I will do a full blown Pic Spam of this video because it IS better do watch it than to just look at pictures (Unless you save them for your own means?) - ANYWAY here is the video (if I can figure out how to dot his blasted thing with links)...

ENJOY this immense amount of Okai Pai in all of her glory... OH YEAH BABY!

Shortcut - When S/mileage begins to Plummet (PV wise)

All thoughts and opinions on this PV are my own - I'm just stating what I think about certain aspects of this PV. I have to admit, it is no Appare Kaiten Zushi (GTFO APPARE PV!) but S/mileage were always meant to be cute and fun... and now we get Shortcut. They really did take a shortcut on PV making with this one. Aye aye aye...

Now you know it's review time when I am sat here, with a laptop, a bottle of Lucozade and a loaded up PV on youtube as well as Paint opened up. Well today I am reviewing/slaughtering the PV Shortcut, performed by S/mileage. Now, before I begin, all PV's I have watched of S/mileage have always been cute, fun and energetic (I'm purposefully blanking out Ama no Jaku right now), just like the songs they sing. Now I like the song of Shortcut... it's the PV that's bad. You may of course beg to differ but I have my opinions... >.> anyway on with the slaughtering review and PIC SPAM of this PV.

Also take note; I haven't reviewed a PV since my first ever blog post... so yup :/

Now this is a pretty funky opening title, I must admit. It's bright and totally kills your eyes in terms of how much colour they have in it. It's so... bright and... purty...

I totes don't dig the hair heads though :/

Ah... Salon Dream? Wait what? I thought that the song Shortcut was meant to be about shortcuts... you know, when you know a way of getting somewhere faster than... you get it, I know ya do, so meh... anyway, we now pretty much know that this song is about a salon. So Shortcut = Short Cut. Note the space between the words.

I want a buzz cut... K, thanks

Blurry pics... whoo >.> This picture actually tells you whatever it needs to say... that she still has hair xD

B-but I want my hair T^T

Man she had such pretty hair... note I say 'had'. Past tense <3 love it

I want your SOUL! <3

... o-O WTF? Wonderful, she now looks like a boy! She also looks like she wants my soul... and maybe yours, too.

Mwahahahaha I am Cleopatra but smekushier~

I-is that a wig? If it is then thank goodness, because I hate that style on Fuku-chan... I think she's Fukuda... is she?

I like those clothes, they are simple but cute and very S/mileagey <3 The dance is pretty cute as well.

We know you're faking it, Saki... but yes this PV is a bore, isn't it?

YEAH let's raise the roof! BABY!

Okay... why are we now standing outside of the Earth? NO SENSE! THIS MAKES NO SENSE!

Okay... skip a few boring close up shots, some dancing time and the girls on the moon...

O-O they're cutting their hair off in the actual PV? If they are (and if the hair isn't extensions/wigs) then WOW... bye bye hair Dx

Saki really knows what precautions to take before even attempting to watch this PV... I wish I could do that...

I really like those dresses...

Iyaa! I never wanted it this short! You BITCH I want my money back!

Ne~ Do I look cute? Ne~

I don't mind that style much... :/

Fooooood~ zzzzZZZ

She's purposefully ignoring the hair slaughtering for food <3

I want to fly to the moon! Because getting a hair cut can GUARANTEE THAT!

I don't get why she's the only one who has the moon landing thing in mind for her speech bubble of colour... then again Saki was the only one who wanted num nums <3

Back to dancing on the freakin' moon... wait why aren't they moon walking?

In the name of S/mileage, this moon is OURS!
They have a flag? Whut... o-o

They took a picture together <3 d'aww...

We have a bit of zipping around as they wonder where to hide their things... hm...

This is cute, I have to admit <3

Volleyball with a moonrock? Yeah if you want a badly scraped hand...

OKAY! The Pic Spam is done!

This PV is BORING! It has to be one of the most boring PV's I have watched (other than Goto Maki's new PV - that is shit boring too). It does not rank as high as Appare Kaiten Zushi does on my list of hatred for PV's, but it's BORING and BLAND!

I love S/mileage because of their happy, hyper, energy filled songs that make you want to dance and to blow up with the cuteness overload of sparkles and sugars. This song is all sparkles and sugary goodness, but this PV isn't. There is no plot to it or any back story (other than haircuts) and it is filled with boring close up shots and dance shots. I am going to ignore any parts of the moon and moon rocks that appear in this PV.

In my honest opinion, this is where I think S/mileage may plummet PV wise. Hopefully their songs won't take a turn for the worst like Morning Musume's did (aka using the same synthony or whatever it is Tsunku fucking uses to redo Resonant Blue) (BTW I love MM songs no matter what xD... yeah) but right now this PV seems to be the start of something terribly horrendous... fuck you, Tsunku. (That rhymes! WHOOT!)

I didn't have an image of any PV in my head for this song because I actually waited for the PV to come out beforehand, and what a load of WTF it is.

And people thought Suko-chan was bad.... >.>

ANYWAY There is one aspect I totally adored through this whole PV, and it's how gorgeous Saki looks throughout it all. Honestly, she's a stunner!

Yeah I'm done hating... for now >.>
