Yes, yes, I know it is late, waaay late but these caps have been in my Pictures folder (the queue for posts) for so long that I just had to get rid of them, now that I am thinking of reinstalling Windows to freshen up my PC, and I don’t feel like deleting, resizing and then recopying all over again.
So here we go. I love these MVs a lot! First of all they are so different from one another, from the songs to the stories to the themes of the videos! While Team G have a really moody song with an equally heavy story and a dark themed MV to match, Team NIII’s on the other hand is so happy go lucky, everyone is having a great time and the MV is as bright as they come! It’s almost a comedy compared to the angst of Team G’s one!
And thus it is a bit hard to decide which I love more! Personally I am more into the darkside and thus love heavy stuff! But on the other hand Team NIII has the trap card – Yukirin! But on the flipside Team G has the yuri!
What’s worse is that lately I have gone back to Ogiyuka (Ogino Yuka) as my NGT48 Oshii. To those who missed it, at first, she was my Oshii, then I switched to Hinatan (Honma Hinata) and now I am back to Ogiyuka! So, while Team G has the yuri and the tone I love, Team NIII has My Kami in addition to my NGT Oshii, and I have been falling in love with Katomina more than usual too! So as you see I can’t decide here which Team’s MV I like best!
Not only about the members but the Team NIII MV is so much fun that it is enough to take on the yuri in the G MV. But there is also the fact that most of the yuri is unrequited! Hell, even the centers Hinatan and Rika wasn’t as straight a romance. It was apparent from Rika’s side that she liked Hinatan. Even to the present time when they meet in the streets years since their school days, there is still something there but just like those years ago, Hinatan is still afraid and in denial but Rika has accepted the reality of things.
Back in the past, there is a moment where Rika leaves, after a bout of jealousy and we see that Hinata’s eyes follows her, telling us that she knows what is happening but either she really did not feel the same way about Rika or she did but was to afraid.
Meanwhile we have a canon ship going on with Ayutaro (Nakamura Ayuna) and Tsugumin (Oguma Tsugumi). I call it canon because in both the present and the past they were legit and the others it seemed knew of their relationship as they didn’t seem to have a problem with their intimacy! This, this ship is why I am actually writing about this MV in the first place! Seriously, those have moments similar to =LOVE’s Teokure CAUTION and the only thing missing was the kiss! Kind of too much to expect but hey, 6 years ago Kanon was like 13, when she kissed a 16 year old Kuumin (SKE48’s Kataomoi FINALLY single)
God, has it really been 6 years since then?! And yet not another 48G MV has managed to get close to that level of GAYNESS! Does anyone know where to purchase a time-machine please?
Meanwhile on the other side, Katomina makes you break ribs with her antics that totally reminded me of Takamina! She was like someone possessed by the 1st Soukantoku! Seriously, she was like her to the T! I totally see why she was chosen as the next Captain of the whole NGT48 (and Team NIII).
Also of course there was some good moments between her and Yukirin, in both the dance parts and the other parts of the MV. Like when she jumped into Yukirin’s solo takes, or when Yukirin had her hands on Katomina’s butt trying to straighten her posture with the help of Ogiyuka and Gatanee.
And the girls were all so lovely! It is the sexy MV, which is where the comedy came from as we know Takamina did not do sexy at all and here Katomina was channelling the perfect takamina (I love how their names rhyme by the way)!
Yeah, Team G also did sexy, in the present timeline where they are grown-up but I only found Ayutaro and Mihachan (Nara Miharu) to fit the bill good enough. Speaking of Mihachan, is she turning into a looker or is it just me?
Anyway, that is all I have to say about this 2 months old single. The A side this time around wasn’t that grand, well when compared to the others. And I am still awaiting a true A side yuri MV! Skip for all the caps…
