The official H!P page has updated the site with new profile pictures for Morning Musume’s 47th single titled Kono Chikyuu no Heiwa wo Honki de Negatterun da yo! / Kare to Issho ni Omise ga Shitai.
The group profile pic was released a while ago but it’s great that we finally get to see the new individual pics since they give us a chance to check out the outfits for each member in better detail, and for the most part I am very impressed with how they look, even though they might have some kind of a resemblance to other past outfits, such as The Peace! or Onna ni Sachi Are (although gold colored outfits are nothing new since all groups have used them at some time or another).
The post is long so please check it out after the break!
Ai-chan’s outfit stands out from the rest since it’s the only one to feature gold colored chains from her top to the elegant chain link accessory that she has on her hips, and while it might seems like it might cause some problems when dancing it seems like it’s the perfect accessory for the leader in her last single (although she will probably not have it in performances).
Apart from that the gold colored tiara and the gold bands plus the many other accessories give her a really cool look, and since she is among the few members to have a short skirt it really makes her stand out in a good way.
Gaki has a more mature look compared to the past few releases since her hairstyle has changed from her usual short cut to a style that fits the outfit perfectly, and with the tiara and the many small chains in her top it really complements well.
Her skirt is a bit different from the other members since it seems to combine the mini skirt that Ai-chan has with the skirt that the Kyuukies are wearing, making the outfit really fit her body well since it gives it a mature look with a cute style at the bottom.
Sayu has her usual hairstyle although it fits well with the outfit since the two gold bands on her arms along with the large gold accessory around her neck (which looks slightly a bit excessive) really make her stand out. Her skirt is similar to Ai-chans since it’s a bit shorter than anyone else, but the gold colored band at the top give her a unique look.
Reina is among the few members that usually has a bow, and this single is no exception since she has quite a big gold bow that grabs the attention of anyone, and along with her slightly futuristic looking skirt and the gold ribbon across her shoulder and hip she is definitely has the most unique look of the members since she is the only one to have these accessories.
Apart from those distinctive accessories she also has another unique accessory that only Ai-chan has (at least I think she does): the platform heels, which might be a bit hard to dance in although they look great.
The two profile pictures for Aika look exactly alike and that’s due to her cast on her foot, so while there might not be that much change it is still a relief since we can see her outfit completely although not her heels (which she most likely doesn’t have). Apart from that she has a large arm warmer type accessory as well as a golden headband, large earrings and a cute skirt with a button in the front which only she has, which look perfect on her.
All of the Kyuukies have the same skirt with a golden band but they all have different tops, with Mizuki’s having a few chains at the top, and with a cute flower accessory it really makes her stand out since she looks really pretty (almost like royalty).
Erina has gotten used to the camera in the past few releases and I’m glad to see that she has since her poses have improved a lot, but that aside her outfit looks really good on her with two bands on her arms and a headband which might look a bit simple although it looks really good on her.
Riho has a similar hairstyle as Gaki (obviously with longer hair) but it really suits her since it complements the outfit well, although the accessory around her shoulders seems a bit too futuristic (like Reina’s skirt).
Kanon stands out from the rest of the Kyuukies mostly because of her top, which seems to reach her skirt although it has a large opening in her stomach area that doesn’t look as good as the other members since she seems to be the only member that is covered almost completely. Despite that the hairstyle looks perfect on her and with the many gold bracelets it gives her a unique look.
Overall the members all look amazing since they have a similar theme: gold colored outfits, with many small differences that make each of them different in their own way. I didn’t like a few of the accessories such as Reina’s futuristic skirt, Kanon’s top covering everything except a triangle shaped area on her stomach, or the gold band around Sayu’s shoulders, but other than that I loved each outfit.
These are most likely just the outfits for Kono Chikyuu no Heiwa wo Honki de Negatterun da yo! so there will probably be another set of outfits for the other a-side, although we will have to wait and find out since they might decide to only use one outfit for this release (not likely but possible).
I look forward to finding out how the outfits will look in the PV since they have a distinctive look to them so hopefully we get a preview sometime soon so we can see for ourselves.
The release date is set for 9/14.
