The H!P releases I’ve been most looking forward to this summer have very similar titles. What’s more, the release dates are only two weeks apart. It’s new singles from my favourite group and favourite soloist. First, let’s take a look at the 46th single from Morning Musume, titled Only You. It will be released June 15th.
The song is nice. It’s not love at first sight but it’s okay, not every song has to be. We’ll just stay friends. I usually tend to prefer songs that are either calm and beautiful or catchy and genki. This is neither, but I think the fast paced parts sound cool and overall I do enjoy the song. As for the PV… old school fans will probably hate me for this, but I think it’s like a seriously improved version of Love Machine with hints of Ai no Sono ~Touch my Heart~ and Yume Miru 15. Really nice, actually. Sharp camerawork is always a big plus. (I’m not a fan of the shaky blurry filming they had going on in MDKS and KP. ) Also, I noticed Gakisan more than ever. Pretty! I especially liked her hair like this. Dear Gakisan, it’s okay to let your hair grow longer, but I wish you won’t return to your big and messy hairstyles ever again. (Think the hairstyle of 3 2 1 Breakin’ Out. If you’re with me on this though, you’d rather not think of it.)
Another thing that stood out to me are the flying gems. Oh and obviously Sayu, but that goes without saying, doesn’t it? Sometimes I just like to point out people that I don’t usually pay much attention to, because everyone in H!P deserves some love. If only I got paid for every minute I look at Sayu on my screen though… But yes, let’s buy this cool single on CDJapan, YesAsia, or your local music retailer, if you’re lucky like that. ^^
