SKE48 [1!2!3!4! Yoroshiku!] updates

     Hihi I'm back. Been having post AKB depression since after they left on Friday. That's the reason for the lack of updates. Really sorry about that, Will write about the experience in a later post. Now on to more pressing matters: SKE48's 4th Single [1!2!3!4! Yoroshiku!], which releases tomorrow.

Photobucket
     Some minor changes about SKE48's newest Single, the name has been changed from [1,2,3,4, Yoroshiku!] to [1!2!3!4! Yoroshiku!]. Unfortunately the name change was a tad late and some websites still use the old name though so make sure that if your searching for it use both the new and old names. That's all for the changes.

     The next updates are the PVs. Now the full PVs have already been released some time ago. However, MELOS no Michi will be following a new set of rules now to comply with AKB48 (and SKE48 too for that matter) management. I will tell you more on that later. But for now I'll just tell you that they have direct links to my blog. I am allowed to link the previews however, so that is what I'll do.

     First up, the A-Side of this Single, 1!2!3!4! Yoroshiku. Well what can I say? Theres a load of extras. And I mean A LOAD OF THEM. Did they break Watarirouka Hashiritai's record of 300 extras in AkKanbe Bashi? I think they did, because I can roughly count like 600+ extras here. There's salsa dancers, cowgirls, men in suits and even a Santa Claus (or two). However it is a tad too messy for my taste. The song itself is your normal catchy idol pop, even more so compared to all their earlier Singles. It's catchy and keeps playing in your head after a while, but I think I still prefer Aozora Kataomoi to this.

     Second is the common B-side song in all 3 types, TWO ROSES sung by SKE48's W Matsui. They are Team Kinect and will be promoting XBox's Kinect system. TWO ROSES is also being used as the CM song for Kinect CMs. The PV for TWO ROSES is....... what's the best way to say this. I would say a fashion show. The first time I watched it, I was too shocked to say anything. Like "what the hell is this I am watching". Then I watched it again and "OMG THIS IS SO AMAZING". Some people have mentioned that TWO ROSES reminds them of WINK, and I have to say OMG THAT'S SO TRUE! And I'm a big fan of WINK.

     Then there's the White Team with Cosmos no Kioku in Type A, and the Red Team with Seishun wa Hazukashii in Type B. I don't have much to say about Cosmos no Kioku, it's a nice idoly song with a nice sounding chorus and a fine PV but it's just......meh. I don't see anything special about it. Seishun wa Hazukashii however is my favorite song and PV of this Single. Yes it is also a nice idoly song with a nice sound chorus and a fine PV too. But I like the tune for this more. I also love the talking in between the lines (even though I didn't really like it in 1!2!3!4! Yoroshiku). Sometimes I don't even understand it myself.

OMG! I love the Matsui duo song... I hope they continue or make it an unofficial unit to become official lol. They should move forward with it's idea of a rip off of Wink, even more I'll love them!
