A PV preview for Morning Musume’s 45th single titled Maji Desu ka Ska! has been released.
The preview is only about a minute and a half long but despite it being short I really love the way it looks so far since it has a simple but fun theme that matches the song, great choreography, and a great dance shot background made up of giant letters with the title of the song, and even though some fans might say that it is a bit too simple I think this is a great first PV for the 9th generation.
The PV only features about 3 shots so far: the solo close-up shots, the dance shot with the giant title, and solo shots of each member in front of the title (for example, Kanon smiling at the camera through the “Ma” symbol), and so far it seems to be somewhat simple since the close-up shots are all basically the same with just a different colored background for each member, although it is a great way for each member to be in the spotlight during their lines.
The dance shot is the main shot of the PV since we get to see quite a bit of the choreography, and even though I don’t concentrate that much on dances while I watch most PVs I was impressed with the many moves that each member did, such as the line dance during the chorus or Ai’s spinning before Reina’s lines, since it matches the fun and cute style of the song perfectly.
The last type of shot we got to see were of the 9th generation members playing around the title of the song, and I really liked them since they were a pretty creative and nice way of showing off the fun sound of the song while giving the PV some variety.
The PV seems to be more simple than other previous releases and as a result it might not be liked by some fans, but I really enjoyed the PV since it does a fantastic job of matching the happy beat of the song along with a creative dance, setting, and shots of all of the members while giving each member a chance to shine in the solo shots and dance shots.
I love the PV so far and I really look forward to seeing the rest of the PV soon (which should be in the next few days), so hopefully we get the full PV soon since this PV is a great release for the 9th generation.
Like always I suggest everyone watch it as soon as possible since there is always a possibility it might be taken down.
The release date is set for 3/23.
