NMB48 3rd Single [Junjou U-19] Full PVs

NMB48's 3rd single [Junjou U-19]'s releases tomorrow! Here are all the released PVs on NMB48's official YouTube channel. In full size too!

Junjou U-19 (純情U-19)

The best song of the single in my opinion but PV wise ....hmm. The main song's PV is 10 minutes long and sort of makes no sense. The song is basically about not participating in any sexual acts before 20. The girls are pulled inside my this weird looking clown inside a closet and are transported into a circus sort of place. Reminded me very much of Narnia [The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe] for some reason.

The girls are seen wearing various outfits such a those of nurses and even wearing crayon costumes! The choreography is pretty neat, when Keicchi is thrown up and Sayaka walking under it was indeed very cool. The PV has whole lot of circus acts going around it, with rope walking, rolling around in a big circle and the Sayaka being fired from a cannon which we never actually get to see. I love the song, I love the choreography but the whole of PV doesn't make sense.

Doryoku no Shizuku (努力の雫)

The Shirogumi PV couldn't be weirder than Junjou. In [Doryuku no Shizuku] we see Sayaka having a cardiac arrest and suddenly in a jungle. The song is actually very rock-ish and in my opinion it should have been a ballad. The choreography is good but I think the outfits were nay. I partly blame the horrible hairstyle that don't suit some of the members. Some of the girls are seen floating in the air which balks me even more.

Migi he Magare (右へ曲がれ!)

The Akagumi PV must be the one which is the most normal of them all. It's very much reminds us of Team K's [ALIVE] though. Akagumi members are donning a military sort of outfit running away from masked people which in the end is the girl themselves! So I guess they were running away from themselves which I think was a pretty neat concept.

Overall, the choreography of all the PVs are amazing, the songs are amazing but some parts just make no sense.
