Maeda Yuki – “Busan Hatsu” PV Released

24 05 2011

The PV for Maeda Yuki’s Busan Hatsu has been released.

The PV starts off at 2:14 after a comment by Maeda Yuki to fans on Youtube.

I don’t usually listen to Maeda Yuki but I checked out the PV for her most recent single and I am very impressed with what I saw since the song was more upbeat than what I imagine Enka would be like and apart from the song we also get to see some pretty amazing scenes that match the song perfectly.

There are only two scenes in the PV but they are pretty impressive, the most impressive of them being the shot of Maeda on a boat watching the sea while the music plays since they were great additions that matched the PV perfectly, and while not much happened she did change location frequently which gave it some variety.

The other shot features Yuki singing to the camera and there are only two angles for this shot, and even though they were pretty overused sometimes I liked how she sang with emotion and didn’t dance that much since it went perfectly with the mood of the song.

As for the song I am now convinced that Yuki has an amazing voice and knows perfectly how to use it since there were some notes in the song that not many members from H!P could sing, and while the song is still Enka I am amazed at how well the vocals for the song turned out.

Hopefully enka fans can check out the PV since this is a great song and an amazing PV, and they are one of the best releases I have heard from Maeda.

The release date is set for 5/25.

New Maeda Yuki Profile Image For “Busan Hatsu”

3 05 2011

A new profile image for Maeda Yuki for her new single titled Busan Hatsu has been released.

Like the cover of her new single she is wearing a very impressive red dress, and while there isn’t much else to comment on I am impressed with how great she looks since her image fits perfectly with the genre she usually sings in.

While we have only seen two images so far from her new single I hope we get a chance to see a PV or some kind of performance since it seems like a great way for them to promote her new single.

Hopefully we get to hear a preview from her new single soon.

The release date for her single is set for 5/25.

Maeda Yuki – “Busan Hatsu” Cover Released

30 04 2011

The cover for Maeda Yuki’s new single titled Busan Hatsu has been released.

The cover features Maeda standing in front of what appears to be the sea and a coast picture with an elegant blue theme around the center where Maeda poses while looking downwards, and while it might be a bit too simple I liked the way it came out since it matches the Enka theme that the single will most likely have.

The title for the single is in white letters on the side of the single, which is somewhat standard for most singles, and while it might not impress that much I did like the addition of the light streak under the letters since it added a bit of variety to the cover.

Overall the cover is most likely not the best I have seen but it is still pretty good for Maeda since it matches the soft style of Enka she is known for, and along with a simple theme it adds a subtle but elegant touch that makes the single stand out.

The release date is set for 5/25.

Tracklist for Maeda Yuki’s Single Title “Busan Hatsu” Released

14 04 2011


1. Busan Hatsu
2. Sarang he ~Aishiteru~
3. Busan Hatsu ~Korean version
4. Busan Hatsu (Original karaoke)
5. Sarang he ~Aishiteru~ (Original Karaoke)

The tracklist for Maeda Yuki’s new single titled “Busan Hatsu” has been released.

It was previously thought to be a double single but it turns out that it’s a regular single with an A and B side. I’m sure fans would’ve loved to have a double A side, since it might mean 2 PV’s to enjoy but having a release is still good enough for many.

The tracklist for Maeda’s single looks quite interesting, there will be a Korean version of the song included on the CD. No previews have been released yet but I’m sure the Japanese as well as the Korean version will be wonderful for all.

Hopefully all fans will purchase a copy when it’s released.

The release date is set for 5/25.

Maeda Yuki’s 11th Single Titled “Busan/Sarang he ~Aishiteru~” Announced

24 03 2011

Maeda Yuki’s 11th single titled “Busan/Sarang he ~Aishiteru~ has been announced.

Maeda made a twitter announcement which said:

“Well, the release date hasn’t been decided yet. The new single is set to come out around the end of May or beginning of June. Starting the 15th, I will be recording the song in Seoul, so I am going to test-record for the purpose of sound check as well.”

I’m very curious as to why she’s recording in Seoul rather than doing it in Japan. It might be due to the Earthquake. The equipment and location might have been ruined but other than that I don’t have a clue as to why she’d do it in another country, but I hope her the best with it.

Hopefully all fans pre-order a copy when it’s released.

The release date is set for 5/25.

Maeda Yuki – “Mianeyo ~Gomennasai~/Eien” Covers Released

13 03 2010

The covers for Maeda Yuki’s 10th single titled Mianeyo ~Gomennasai~/Eien have been released.

For the most part I like how the covers look since Yuki looks incredible, especially with the lighting effects and how the dress stands out. The title art isn’t that complex at all since it is only white letters with the title and Yuki’s name, but it was kind of expected since it is an Enka release after all.

Overall I like how the cover looks, and while I don’t really like Enka I do like how great Yuki looks on the cover so hopefully it sells decently well so that fans of her can get future releases.

The release date is set for 4/7.
