Over at New School Kaidan, I write a few words about some of the recently released promotional videos. At times, this is a bit of a grueling task, and all of my thoughts can get a little scattered when multiple PVs are released on the same day. But, I always try to present the promotional videos in the best light possible, and I try to remember that each of these pieces of entertainment for your a me is actually the manifestation of a dream for some young girl or girls out there in Japan. Here then is a collection of those write-ups, with a few words sometimes added after a week+ of viewing.
This week we have Promotional videos from:
Zenbu Kimi no Sei da – Wagamama Shinsei Hominina
Zenbu Kimi no Sei da’s fourth single bursts to life with the colored pages of manga. Perhaps a bit less aggressive that some of the group’s past offerings, “Wagamama Shinsei Hominina” finds the group living in the illustrations like this were a 1980s one-hit wonder video. The guitars take a step backwards to give way to the synth melodies that add color to the auditory mix. But, the striking feature for this offering is the bursts of primary colors. When the lights go off, even the dark is pierced with blue lights. “Wagamama Shinsei Hominina” finds its way to stores on April 26, 2017.
