The full PV for Berryz Koubou’s 27th single titled Aa, Yo ga Akeru! has been released.
The start of the PV reminded me somewhat of Buono!’s JUICY HE@RT thanks to the castle that looks similar to the one used in Buono!’s PV for this song (except that this one looks fancier), and also a little bit of Kimagure Princess because of the font and the way the text appears which I really like since it fits with the overall classy and elegant theme the PV has.
As some have said, the PV looks like if they tried to execute the idea of a princess waiting for her prince since in the many scenes where each girl is sitting alone, we get to see her wait and look a little sad and impatient, waiting for something or someone, and this concept is really nicely executed thanks to the many scenes and rooms the girls are in that are all sobre and elegant.
The main scenes of the PV are: the scene where the girls are sitting all together on the stairs of the mansion singing the chorus, the dance shot vers where the girls are dancing in a big theater room with a small stage of red curtains behind them; the very close-up version of each girl where we get to see them really shine and the other version that seems to be the main one where the girls do various acts and expressions while sitting each in a different room of the palace that was featured in the beginning (i.e: Rii is in a room with a fireplace, Momoko is in a bedroom, Chinami is walking downstairs at the beginning while Miyabi is featured getting out of a glass door at the end…).
Even though Maasa, Captain and Chii appear a lot less than Risako or Miyabi, I think that they did an amazing job adding special things to all of them like Captain who is the only one standing in the stairs, Chii who is walking downstairs at the beginning and gets some screentime, or Maasa who is in a special room with a mirror looking at herself, which all combine to make the PV really beautiful since they’re not completely transparent.
Overall, I really think this is one of Berryz’s best PV this year since it’s original and is different from the very usual close-up and dance-shot only PVs, and all of the girls look stunning through the whole video which has a very unique concept and a story.
Hopefully everyone who didn’t like the single can change their mind after watching the PV and reserve a copy to support Berryz Koubou!
The release date is set for 8/10.
The video might not be up for long but whenever another video is available, the post will be updated:
