All! Hail! SKE48!
Yes, I know this is actually an AKB48 PV but to hell with that logic! You didn’t see Reinayn(NMB) and Mariyagi (AKB) kiss! You didn’t see Suuchan kissing her left-hand man Fuuchan either! It was all on our fabulously and very shockingly Centre material Suuchan doing the lip-syncing as it is supposed to be done with none other than one of the favourites from fellow group member Rion! I have been (and I think many others too) waiting for a PV to take on SKE48’s 2011 PV for Kataomoi FINALLY and I think SKE too have been waiting but nothing seemed to be happening!
I remember mentioning that the only way KataFina would ever be able to be topped would be if Mayuki took on the challenge and it seems I was wrong in my thinking because I did not factor in the possibility that SKE48 could still give us another PV! And of course having experimented already with zero negative reactions, of course the only way they could have possibly gone, had they decided to do another one, was up! But then the Managers got switched around with SKE’s going to AKB so I had given that possibility up. I did not think that there was no reason why Yuasa wouldn’t just make a GAY PV in AKB! And lo and behold, my plot-holes have been revealed!
So, you must excuse me when I say that this PV took me by complete surprise! I had almost given up if even if now that Mayuki are the Top 2 in AKB, we still can’t get a Duo AKB PV with them as the leads in a yurific PV like how it had been before (AtsuYuko, MaYuko). I had simply given up but the force still existed and it was re-sparked by SKE of all the groups!
Yes, the PV Ambulance is filled with members from all over the Family but the bottom line remains that it was SKE who delivered the goods! In this part of the world, it’s the results that matter, not the road to getting to them! And as such, we have dear Suuchan, Azunyan and SKE to thank for this revival of that feeling that I almost forgot which I got from KataFina way back in the Madoka day (Madoka Magica was airing then. Those were the times)!
Ladies and Gentlemen, Suu-chan (Sato Sumire)! The one and only Centre of this awesome PV on the whole frikkin single title ‘Ambulance’! What’s that? Objection you say? The Main PV had veteran cameos you say?
HA! HAHA! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA
This is me laughing my butt off! That PV was a joke as far as I am concerned! If I watch a PV and I get zero urge of wanting to watch it again it means that it’s made of FAIL! I only watched Refrain more than once because first, I watched the Preview and not being satisfied with the amount of Yukirin, I watched the fuller version just so I could get my fill but that was a huge let-down as well so I watched the Fullest version too just in case – BIG MISTAKE! I just don’t even know anymore! It’s starting to feel like I am being raeped by AKS these days and just like the victim of constant abuse, I am losing myself to their evil deeds!
Anyway, this is not about her, this is about Suu-chan and how she totally slayed the role! There are others that obviously tried to upstage her but she was in SRS mode all day, all hour, all minute and every second of it! What makes her even that more respectable is that fact that there were quite a many girls in this cast that were a real threat, like all four of her right and left hand men were all real threats! She had Nao and Mariyagi on her right, meanwhile on her left there was Fuu-chan and Reinyan! Forgetting that fact that they four can pull of a mean look, they are all, FAN-FACTLY, Centres! They have all Centred a single before! Like, take that information and process it and you will know what this Yurigumi is really made of!
And that’s just the front lines!
So dear Readers, I hope you really understand exactly how fabulous Suuchan is for leading such an awesome team and actually standing above them all! That is a fit that is not easy to pull off! Now of course there is no Senbatsu heads in there but for some reason this Yurigumi gave off a presence much more empowering than Refrain, even with their 32 (100% more) members! Like, how awesome is that?! The more I talk about it the more impressed I get with this PV! It’s the only song I have on my Note 3 from the single as well! Like, can you say Whaaaa
Suuchan was just great in this PV. She really deserves some kind of recognition for her work here back at the home base in Nagoya. And don’t get me started on her best role! But that will come later.
Those lips, I would know them anywhere!
Who actually are the 2nd in command?
All aboard the HKT/Team 4 bandwagon? Good!
Mizukiiii I wanna have ur babies!
First Q on NMB’s Application Form: U B Cool?
Them Costumes! DAT Baddassery! Imperfections? I’m sorry but…where?!
Imma watching ur hands Fuuchan!!!
Art of filming, perfected!
This PV dear Readers, this gift from above of a PV!!! I don’t even…Well, I have a feeling that if this is included in the Rh2015, rest assured it’s gonna be in the Top 50 for sure! Yes, I am aware that for some reason Japanese fans don’t like cool songs/PVs but I am sure all the foreign fans have enough power to influence the rankings a bit! Everything about this PV is just so great! I have already said it but those costumes people! All props to the costume designer for this PV! I had had enough of all the frilly cute things! Too much sugar is never good for the body and sometimes a bit of spiciness is required! Thank the good Lord for the gifts that are BEGINNER, UZA, RIVER and now Ambulance for providing that much needed variety in diet!
But it’s not just the costumes that make this PV un-forgettable, nope, not even close! I am no music-nut but even I know the basics that if I find myself listening to a song more than once without skipping to the next, it means I love it and thus a good song to my standards. I have played Ambulance 25 times already according to Winamp and that’s not counting the Note 3 play through! That in and of itself makes this a winner! If I love the song this much it means that I can double the pleasure of watching the PV every time I watch it!
But then what of the watching? Indeed, here comes the third reason why am all over this PV – it looks good! We all know the history of AKB PVs and to those who don’t know, their quality streak isn’t a good one! This PV looks really good! It’s DVD source yet even on my Awesome QHD monitor it looks really good! Like, who did they hire for this PV and where have they been hiding all this time?! Probably been working for H!P all this time (Their PV are a feast for the eyes, aren’t they?). Like, I can’t wait fir the next Billion ga Ippai BD PV collection to hit stores! The first PV I am watching from it is this hands down! Unless of course we get a Sakura single with Mayuki sexing then things will be different!
And I believe that I also already touched upon the cast for this PV! One word – FLAWLESS! I don’t know what is better, the fact that I know every single girl in this PV or the fact that they were all on their A game? I just can’t decide! And of course the best of them all was the Centre and I am not sure if it’s the Centre effect or just Suuchan but she shone at that Centre mark my friends, she shone brightly! if it is indeed the Centre effect, then I best get my coffin ready for when My Goddess finally gets to lead the whole Family one day!
But, while all that is well and good, the one fact that makes this PV champion that it is, is that one and only thing! The thing that I eat, sleep, dream about and live for…
I’m sorry AKS but where the hell is my Full Ver of this PV?!! I have to see that kiss of Reinyan and Mariyagi!!! It’s not everyday that one gets to enjoy this incestuous relationship between sister groups! You can’t tease me like this and leave me hanging! This is a crime worth being burnt at the stake! You witches!
Any way, let’s just take a moment to appreciate that Azuma Rion and Sato C. Sumire’s kiss that is going to the Hall of Fame! I…I just don’t even know where to begin! Is it with the fact that this is Azuma Rion that is being kissed here?! Or should I start at the fact that the kiss is only less than a percentage away from tying with KumiNon’s kiss in KataFina!?! I mean did you guys see the build up to that kiss first of all? What?!! You didn’’t?!! Well, I can help with that. Some real gifs should take care of things…
Forget it! Suuchan and Rion just defeated Kuumin and Non!
That’s the simple truth of the matter! What KumiNon had going for them was the risk that it had to take with KataFina! Not only were they both underage but Non had just turned 14 at the time and Kuumin wasn’t that much older than her at sweet 16! To think that those two had that real mouth to mouth kiss that was so real and unlike anything that has ever come before it or there after before this that even the making ofs were a keeper, was a real game changer, or better yet, Game Ender!
No one dared challenge them since then and it was only natural that the challenge came from the home-base itself! And while it was a moment for the books, there was still flaws. Firstly being that KataFina wasn’t a song that I could sit through multiple listens. So that took the enjoyment factor from the PV a bit. The second point being that KumiNon’s kiss was just…there! No build-up, no fore-play so to speak! Kuumin just up and kissed Non out of nowhere and to make things that less exciting, (to me) they had a witness which took out the preciousness of the moment of their kiss from them! And of course after that, KumiNon were never to be seen ever again!
Now of course that witness was Rena, who maybe might have been changed which lead to her acceptance of Juri-baby advances which of course meant WMatsui (even as watered down as they were from KumiNon) so the blow was reduced! it is WMatsui that still held KataFina in Top place even after I have seen the PV for a few days now!
it is only now that Ambulance steals that top position. Why? Well, because I too did not look, it seems, close enough at the kiss until now while I was making the gifs! it occurred to me just then while in Photoshop that the intimacy between these two, Suuchan and Rion, is bounds above that of KumiNon! So what if Kuumin kabedon-ed Non before steaking her virgin lips!? Kabe-don wasn’t a thing back then, which is an actual shame! Still, the fact that Kuminon’s kiss didn’t make any sense at all, (at the very least they could have given us a 2 sec shot of KumiNon cuddling or something to show us that there is more between them) which seemed like it was nothing. And with the theme of crazy girls, maybe they were only curious, or Kuumin was simply a player more extreme than Juri-baby. Either way, they lacked chemistry!
Here though, look at those eyes of Suuchan’s! Look at the little reactions from Rion – At her initial hesitance to final acceptance of Suuchan’s offerings. And then that look at the end that Suuchan gave Rion! You know what I see in that look? It’s the promise of more! the promise of the future! The evidence of real feelings laying beneath and explaining these sudden advances! And of course Rion also seems ready to take on that promised future with the way she eyes Suuchan’s lips, totally ready for second base!
It’s FINAL! Ambulance (and effectively SuuRion) are now the reigning champions in the yuri department as far as the whole 48 Family is concerned! And incidentally, that makes SKE the yuri Goddess in this fandom! And with Maachun no longer in NMB, and thus no more chances of getting Syayacchun yuri, as far as NMB is concerned I have little faith in them! Obviously if they pulled a Duex ex Machina and made Yukirin kiss someone there, like maybe Akarin or Milky, then of course the game is on but if we can’t even have Mayuki, I would sooner wish to win the jackpot that get that since the former has more chances of happening! But speaking of NMB, let’s not forget…
Like, why go through the trouble if you aren’t going to show it?!! And I have the feeling that they actually kissed but those demons just cut the kiss out! What, too hot for the audience?! Well, seeing that they were blind-folded, their lack of restrictions might have produced some awesome results! Damn, now I want to see it!!!
Damn you AKS!
Any way, what think you dear Readers, are you with me in my decision of usurping KumiNon with SuuRion?
While you thin about it, here are all the caps…
