LQ covers from H!P’s official site for Morning Musume’s 47th single titled Kono Chikyuu no Heiwa wo Honki de Nagatterun da yo!/Kare to Issho ni Omise ga Shitai have been released.

Since the covers are really small and seem to have each a different pattern with some having the outfits for the first song, some for the second and some having both all together, it’s really hard to judge how everyone and how everything looks on the cover since they look quite busy, but we at least can get a general opinion about how they look and hopefully wait for clearer covers soon where we could check out the details.

So far, it seems that there are 3 different types of covers: featuring the gold outfits for the first song only (Limited A and C), featuring the colorful outfits for the second song only (Limited B) and featuring the members in both outfits (Regular Edition and Single V).

In my opinion, the covers that have only one of the outfits are really appealing since when we look only at them, they seem to be really well done since the gold theme is used perfectly in Limited A and C where we get to see the girls pose in frames in Limited A and posing in a sexy way aginst a lighter background in Limited C, with the title being written in dark gold/pale brown in the bottom, and I have to say that Limited A’s concept reminds me of Buono!’s Bravo Bravo because of the frames and the poses.

As for the Limited B, it seems to feature the outfits that we haven’t seen yet for the second cute song, and I have to say that they did an amazing job with the cover since it seems bright and colorful thanks to the blue background and the colorful outfits the members are wearing, as well as the title that’s written in big and in colors in the middle since it shows how happy and cute the song is, and the contrast between this cover and the gold ones is incredible.

Coming to the Regular edition, I’m kind of disappointed about it since it seems like a very poor montage of the girls in both outfits, meaning there is a total of 18 faces on the cover which is already really disturbing, as well as many colorful additions on the sides of the cover that for me seem to clash a little and don’t match that well, and I would have liked them to use the blue background of the Limited B cover for the Regular one too so that we would have 2 gold covers alongside 2 colorful covers.

Finally, Ai-chan’s special Regular edition’s cover is simply amazing since we get to see Ai-chan wearing what seems to be her outfit for her solo song while posing calmly against a gray wall, holding her hand up to her haid and smiling peacefully with the title that should be the one for her song and for Kono Chikyuu no Heiwa wo Honki de Nagatterun da yo! since those are the only songs featured in this special edition, so this could easily be my favorite cover from the whole batch since Ai-chan’s expression and the simplicity of the cover match her song perfectly.

The Single V cover was also released since we’re not that far away from the release date, and it seems to have a same setting as for the Regular cover, and I was kind of suprised to see that  they squeezed in 3 Ai-chans with her look for each song, a crowded background with colorful faces, teddy bears, animals, etc… and even Tsunku who is on the right, so hopefully we can figure out why  everything is positionned this way and why Tsunku is in the cover soon since many are speculating that he could be in one of the PVs (even though it’s not confirmed yet, but it would explain why he’s on the cover).

Overall, I’m really impressed by all of the covers since they are all very creative and have amazing contrast with being respective to their own themes, and my favorites are definitely Limited A and Ai-chan’s special edition, so I can’t wait to see the HQ covers for those.

Hopefully everyone can check them out to take a general look and have an idea of what the covers look like, and even though I’m a bit disappointed by Regular Editon and Single V’s covers, I still think fans who want to have a copy will be more than pleased to have it.

The release date is set for 9/14.

I’m looking forward to seeing the covers with bigger images :)

Maybe Tsunku will be in a video. I was thinking, Why the heck is Tsunku there? :P

Woooooow. I didn’t know that Morning musume has so many new members! -___-
I’m not impressed. 20 people on one cover? And the outfits of the 2 singles are not matching!! They are defenetly overdoing it.

I have to agree with you.

The Single V cover is so distracting! There are way too many images and then while I usually like colorful things, there are even too many colors to look at.

Then randomly, there’s Tsunku on the side :P

morning musume does not have 20 members they just put all of the members twice (well three time for Ai)

I know that, I just said it ironically, because the people who’ll see this in the stores might not reconise Morning Musume. Since each looks so different in their outfits, you don’t realise at first sight that they are there two times (or three times).
It would have been totally okay if they’d put a group picture with the golden outfits on one side and the colorful ones on the other.

The limited C cover reminds me of shouganai yume oibito’s cover :3

As for tsunku, he may have backing vocals or something. (Didn’t hear the first A side when it was previewed).

Tsunku always does backup vocals on singles but that’s not a reason for him to be featured on the cover…
There must be something else and I’m dying to figure out if he’s in the video or not xD

Okay, the Tsunku randomly cropped in like he’s a normal member on the Single V cover is funny. XD I hope he’s in the PV for Kare to Issho. And the green girl inbetween Riho and Aichan in the second row looks like Snookie.

When I saw these today, I thought Limited A was the Reg Ed… And I bought the Reg Ed. -A-; I don’t care too much since I’m doing it to support them and for the music anyways, but…. sigh. At least it looks better than the Single V.

Limited A reminds me of Kimagure Princess with a touch of Seishun Collection, Limited B reminds me Koko ni Iruzee!, and Limited C TOTALLY reminds me of Shougani Yume Oibito. Ironically, all have Aichan in them and it’s her last single. And Regular makes me think of a volcano that erupts with rainbows. In Hawaii. ._. idk

Figures, first MM single I buy I get crapped out on my ideal single cover. XD
