Most of you know by now that Ice Cream Musume is going to be Morning Musume’s “equivalent” in Taiwan, and it seems they are quite busy releasing PV’s like crazy, the newest being a cover in Chinese (I don’t remember if they are Chinese or from Taiwan, or even if China and Taiwan are the same, didn’t put attention in Geography class) of Morning Musume’s mega hit Renai Revolution 21. (Funny how the only Japanese part is the “Cho Cho Ii Kanji” part, and yes put “Cho” not “Chou” on the chinese subtitles)
As you may also now Tsunku declared that he wanted to expand through asia (evil plan to conquer the world through upbeat songs?), and it seems he is doing just that. The PV is of higher quality than other Resonant Blue – type videos, why? Judge for yourself, they even get a panda (which seems to be the Jpop symbol for Chinese singers, ex – JunJun & LinLin) while Hello! Project in Japan has a pink rabbit (Hello! Morning) and a cabbage man (Haromoni@)….that’s kind of depressing.
Anyway I like the PV, it puts more attention on each member and now they are doing more than dancing and singing into the camera. The dance is different from the original, and in my opinion it’s kind of boring, but we actually see more of the girls, especially scary Anchii (she looks like she is about to kill). They also dance in an ice cream factory, which seems dangerous to me.
I am officially a ReiRei (0:19-0:20) fan, she is getting used to having a camera on her during the PV, she’s cute, and she sings well. I advise you pick your favorite because they are here to stay, their album is on the 11th place on the Taiwan charts, last time I checked, so they are doing extremely well.
Next PV, Ame no Furanai Hoshi de wa Aisenai Darou (I actually know that by memory), I hope they relax a bit on the ice cream theme…anyway here is the PV:
