Whew! Now that I have reserved my Amazon pre-order of this single…
How dare thee NMB!?! You think you can just flaunt yuri and the good old cool PVs in my face and I will be back to buying your singles?! Well, you are right in thinking that! I have not bought anything from NMB since Don’t Look Back (because of Yukirin) and nothing before that since Maachun left (and incidentally breaking up my by then 2nd favourite ship – Sayacchu).
And now with more than half the 1st gen gone and going, I thought there would never come a day when I buy another NMB single but lo and behold – They go and release a monster and I love my monster singles! Not only is the A-side cool as all hell bringing back that NMB of old and momentarily back, they go and add in two yurific b-sides in there for that double-tap move! Like, I am not made of stone! The most surely got me with the two yuri vids, especially that Kinoshita one (Holy molly Kinoshita is centering!!?!) but then they went and made the A side one to die for! I love my cool singles as you know. My tope 10 of the whole 48 G consists mostly of the cool songs (Beginner, Uza, Kazefu, Virginity, J_19, KuroShoujo, Two Years Later, etc) so you know my resistance in this matter was as good as the Borg would say – futile!
First off, what’s up with that Kinoshita PV?! Who is that girl?!! I have been out of NMB for a while now that I do not even know if she is a member or not! Is she a member? If she is, who is she? tell me you all NMB royals out there! Strangely enough my first thought was that she was not a member and with that my mind went into overdrive coming up with strange ideas like her being Ex-Nogizaka Itou Nene! Oh come on, she looks like her, don’t she?
And damn that Kinoshita! She looks so in love with that girl that the other delusions was that she was her real life girl-friend and that she is actually putting her into the MV and we are here clueless not knowing nothing! Dear Lord if it is actually Kinoshita’s GF Imma gonna…And how cool does Kinoshita look in that wool jacket?! How cool the members with her are, like did you think Moka could be cool?! I most certainly did not. Now I know that any NMB member is capable of being cool!
Okay, maybe not Azusa but hey, they need some cute in there, amirite!
Then there is that Team M b-side! Barring my confusion wondering when the hell did Uuka, Nagisa and Akarin become Team M members when I soon found out that there was a shuffle that happened (understandably since many members are leaving), I have a feeling I am gonna have a blast feeding my delusions of who is with whom when the full PV gets here. For example there seems to be a chaotic threesome going on between Nagisa, Akarin and Mirurun, then there is the S&M pair with Renapyon and we have the cutesly Uuka and Chihii!
And finally let’s not forget that lovely cool A side that is an all out dance battle themed PV! Like, how cooler can they get than that! And did I spy some gayness between Saepi and Reinyan, Jo-chan and Riripo in there too?! Is every other PV gay in here?! Give me my DVDs right now Japan?!!!
Congrats NMB, you have managed to gran be back (temporarily, okay? Temporarily!) with this 16th ‘Boku igai no dare ka’ single! Take all my money for all versions of the single, just this one more time, okay?! This is the last time!!
Anyway, more caps and the short versions after the jump…
