[Ponytail to Shushu] Updates

First things first, the title is confirmed to be [Ponytail to Shushu]. The girls said it themselves. Online websites still romanize it as [Ponytail to Chouchou / Shoushou] though. And in case you didn't know yet, included in Ponytail to Shushu is the voting ticket for the Senbatsu Election 2010. Voting will determine the position of the members for the 17th Single.

Most of you probably know this by now, Ponytail to Shushu is full of bikinis. I personally have no problem with that, but the haters are definitely going to pick on it.The PV preview is below.
On first listen, with the low quality, the song was too boring for me. However with the HQ, it was instant win. The instrumental is awesome that I just looped it for the whole day! My favourite parts of the song is definitely the chorus. I love the overlapping voices. Best part of the PV has to be the scene where Yukirin fixed her hair in the wind (0:43 in the preview below). The full PV has been shown in the theatre and comments are that the start of the PV is dirty/erotic. It's not shown in the preview though so we will have to wait and see.

Team S: Matsui Rena, Yagami Kumi

No previews yet but it has been shown in the Theatre so we have some comments.
The setting is in the beach, in the evening before night. There's something like a bonfire in the PV. It is also in bikinis and is supposedly a sexy song.

Boku no Yell members (19) (19 AKB)
Team A:
Oya Shizuka, Nakagawa Haruka, Nakata Chisato, Nakaya Sayaka, Matsubara Natsumi
Team K: Uchida Mayumi, Umeda Ayaka, Tanabe Miku, Nonaka Misato, Nakatsuka Tomomi, Matsui Sakiko, Yonezawa Rumi
Team B: Ishida Haruka, Kobayashi Kana, Sato Natsuki, Suzuki Mariya, Chikano Rina, Hirajima Natsumi, Masuda Yuka

No previews yet but we have some comments from a member of s48 who saw it in the Theatre. The setting of the PV was a soccer game. The PV begins with a girl (who was later revealed to be Harugon) running towards the football field in her school uniform. scene cut, and the same girl starts running from some place towards the camera. flashback, and the other girls are revealed wearing their soccer uniforms (blue shirt, normal numbers at the back, shorts).The main focus of the PV was Harugon, on how she tried her best to train, how her team was at the verge of losing, and after one foul, it was all up to her to save the day by a penalty kick. She failed to make a goal, and all the girls start crying, harugon breaks down, comforted only by Shimada Haruka. I guess the pv is all about trying again, and never giving up. The last scene of the PV is when harugon enters the football field once again, matching the very first scene of the PV.

Erotic? Dirty? WTF? It's just bikinis and regular ones if I might add. Not even any erotic moves. Sure would like to know where do they see that. The only thing I find wrong is the heli's shadow :/

This one is just a preview from AKBINGO. It's not the full PV. The full PV was shown in the AKB Theater. Those comments are from those people who saw it in the Theater. That was what I meant by the comments. Sorry for the misunderstanding.
