[Heavy Rotation] PV previews

30 July - Updated with Heavy Rotation PV, Lucky Seven PV preview

What else can I say. WANTS. MEGA WANTS!!!!

Radio rips of both Heavy Rotation and Namida no Seesaw Game have been released. Links below the jump. I don't really like Heavy Rotation. Only the chorus part, the rest is . . . . .
And for the PV. I don't know what to say. I want that kissing scene (above image) of Acchan and Yuko. But most of the rest of the PV is looking disappointing. I hope my mind will change when the full PV is out.

OHH MAA GAWD!!!!! The kiss scene made it in!!!!! This has got to be the most fanservice ever in an AKB PV, even more than Amai Kokansetsu. Definitely gonna send many wotas into unconsciousness. Best parts of the PV has got to be the Matsui W in a tub. 2girls1tub!

And thats all for the parts of the PV that I like. Overall I don't like the PV except for the kissing and 2girls1tub. In fact i'm very disappointed at it. Why? Look at the PV again. How many times did you see any member not in Media Senbatsu? Other than the 4 seconds where you can see Akicha, Miichan and Erepyon take over the front, I hardly can spot any of the others. WTF is this shit! I paid my yens to get Ponytail to Shushu so I could vote for Amina and give her more screentime but what do I get? I can't even clearly spot her in the whole PV. I did not pay my loyalties to see Amina and the rest of the Senbatsu get demoted to back dancers. Extremely disappointed in the PV.

If not for Namida no Seesaw Game and the other 2 tracks, I would not have ordered Heavy Rotation. I absolutely love Namida no Seesaw Game. The whole retro feel of it. Even the afros and weird hairstyles lol. The whole PV is amazing. 3D is OUT, Black & White is IN. One of the few songs and PVs that I have absolutely no complaints.
