The short version of Kikkawa Yuu’s PV for her 2nd single titled Hapirapi~Sunrise~ has been released.
As the title suggests we only get to see a short version of the PV, in this case about 2 minutes, but it’s still a great chance to check out a few of the shots and find out what the PV will look like. For the most part the PV exceeds my expectations since there are many shots in the PV, many of which don’t look like the average dance or close-up shots but instead feature Kikka in settings which relate to the song more.
From what I can tell there are about 6 different shots in the PV (probably more): the shot of Kikka singing in front of a tree in a colorful flower dress, Kikka in a kitchen looking out the window, Kikka having lunch with a dog, dancing in front of a white wooden wall, singing while sitting in the back of a truck, and the close-up which seems to be part of the dance shot as well, and while most of the shots are just to add variety to the PV I have to admit that I really loved the way they looked since they gave the PV a more casual and cozy feeling, matching the song perfectly.
While this is only the first half of the PV there is already quite a lot of content so fans who prefer PVs that stray away from the usual “dance+close-up” PVs will love this release since every few seconds we get to see a different shot, and while the song isn’t exactly the most impressive release you will hear it is still a pretty good release for Kikka since it has a casual and cute sound to it.
Overall the PV looks amazing so far, and while we haven’t seen the other half of this release I am already impressed with it since there are many shots for fans to enjoy, and while most of them might be used only to fill up the PV I still enjoyed it quite a bit since it matches the song perfectly.
Hopefully the full PV is only a few days or weeks away from being released since I am really looking forward to seeing the full PV soon.
The release date is set for 9/21.
