Man, I love her so much >.<
So, since Nogizaka released a collection of all their PVs in true awesome Blu-ray Quality, I figured that I might just as well post something about those PVs that were somewhat relevant Some I have already written about here, others I might not have.
Lost post is long though…You’ve been warned!
All the delicious couples
From the latest Nogizakatte doko episode, I was expecting a coupling of the new single but what I got instead was a LIVE version of SHAKISM!
I was so ecstatic because, hello, I got to see all the couple clearly whereas I could not in the PV! And there is just something about LIVE performances that put that extra kick into things >.< Also a few theories were proved with this LIVE watching, like who was with whom and other things!
Couples every where!
Can we just take a moment to appreciate how rare, how bulls-eye and simply awesome the concept of Shakism is?
Okay, one might ask what the big deal is apart from the obvious (danso) as the baselines aren’t that new but it all comes down to execution. The danso idea was already there. Every fan across the globe knows of the No-Love rule.
But despite those facts, they still let AKB girls get it on with males in their PVs like it ain’t no big deal. Can we just imagine the awesomeness that would have been Gingham Check had Yukirin been kissing a danso AKB member as opposed to that Dude that sent all the fans on rampage? Wouldn’t the fans have been much happier had Yuko and Mayuyu been fighting over Sae-man? Has this happened in the 48 family? Will it ever happen in the 48 family? I think not!
And so I give Nogizaka’s SHAKISM’s director the utmost praise at pulling off what can only be thought of as one of the best for-the-fans PV ever! AKB doesn’t do that anymore, if it ever did. They are falling into the trap that is BUSINESS!
“OMG our girls are too popular now to be mistreated. We have a wider audience to appeal to now so we have to average out our uniqueness.” – so saith AKS.
Well dearest AKS, IDGAS!!!
Nogizaka not only did that right but making half the girls play the boys’ part but they touched upon the No.1 rule in such a way that will drill the idea into those who simply did not get the grasp of it. Not only that but it falls within the main genres except comedy.
We have Sci-Fi in the futuristic setting (what, with teh lazers and all that post apocalyptic feel it has). Then there is action (“”What are you saying – that I can doge bullets?), there is drama of course. There is romance, duh, and I also want to include adventure in relation to the fact that they referenced TDKR. We shall be getting into that.
Then we also have the usual shonen formula, – Main starts out the weakest then by end ends up the strongest MF to ever have waked the earth (“No. I am saying that when you are read, you won’t have to”)!
All those point to SHAKISM being some generic PV but I assure you that I have been watching this Every day since it appeared on the NET! And now that I have the HQ, let’s get down to business.
Rina-sensei, Doing the forbidden with student Minami
20 Seconds into Nogizaka46’s Shakism…SHAKISM!!!! Ken told me I was already dead!
I could not continue the damn PV!
See you in Nirvana!
Or when the HQ comes around, whichever happens first after my funeral!
Really, what reason is here to live when a wish gets granted?!
