I feel like uniforms are super common in Japan though so it's not that unusual. I feel like you can't be anywhere in big city without seeing "shuukatsu" girls.

I wasn't expecting that at all. 😂 Dance made me laugh, BUT it worked with the song and looked super catchy. Song is pretty good, and somehow really fit them. I was trying to figure out if another group would fit it and J=J was the only one as the instrumental reminded me T&C

That's true. I just felt it's not that common in H!P. Then again Love Machine itself has office ladies costumes in it so...

I think the problem is it makes them look like little girls playing dress up in their moms' clothes. And they're already awkward enough.

An H!P video with multiple locations and a strong narrative? What kind of black-magic voodoo is this?
 
It might be time for those of us who said TF could never catch up to KF to toss some crow on the BBQ, because this is a strong single. TF might look awkward, but they're using it to their advantage. They're not trying to hide it or minimize it; they're pushing it and using it as a charm-point.

Yeah, but I get my idol awkward needs filled from my Stardust groups. Even today I still look to H!P for a more polished idol, and Kobushi's pop rock tracks have been amazing for me.

I guess that's why I never got into idol music outside H!P haha. But the song is nicely done. The last single was good as well, only Just Try being the odd one out.

I was pretty surprised. The song and MV were both better than expeted. I never expected much out of Tsubaki Factory at first, but they've been surprising me.

^^I'd recommend Tanabe Nanami's group, the former KKS. They only have a few releases and are sill pretty small, but I think they're really great. They're called OnePixcel.

Shuukatsu is definitely my top Tsubaki song so far (of all their songs). I've watched the music video like 10 times today. I love the video, the dance, and of course the song,especially since I am at the age range they are talking about and just entering the workforce, so the lyrics really apply to me.

I love when they're bowing and dancing across the crosswalk.

I really liked it Q_Q

 

It felt like an updated old-H!P feel.... If that makes sense? Like it felt like something you might've heard from old Tsunku, but with a different instrumental and beat somehow. I dunno. I loved it though.

I like the dance.  I like the idea of the MV.  Yurina???? The song is meh.  But wow this video I really feel like emphasizes that this is the group with the least cute girls. o_O

I've always seen it more as it seems like they choose unflattering haircuts and don't do much in terms of make-up. But no worries, they're the C-ute of this generation... WATCH THEM GLOW UP.

I don't know that it's just haircuts because none of them are weird. And light makeup isn't transforming anyone. They definitely threw the unconventional looking girls into this group. Mizuho and Saori are the only ones I find consistently cute lol.

I find Mizuho plain and Saori isn't good at expressions. I think the cutest girls are Yumeno, Mao, and Risa. Kiki is good at expressions, but she isn't traditionally cute. Ami is really pretty, but she always looks worried. I've never found Riko that cute. Kisora is going through an always phase.

For me it's Yumeno (but I'm horribly biased when it comes to her), Mao and Kiki. I never saw appeal in Riko or Kisora. Ami, as you said, looks rather worried (she's still quite attractive, though). Risa is cute and I like her a lot, but she's mega awkward. Saori and Mizuho have potential, with Saori being traditionally cute imo.

I think I'm actually going to buy a physical copy of this single. I keep listening the radio rip of Waratte and it's just so good.

I love it. It feels like something that would go viral on Nicovideo. Like, if a Vocaloid did this song it would be world famous in a heartbeat.

 

Still waaayyy more excited for Waratte though. The radio preview was amazing.

This is sooooo damn good from every perspective. The song, which I liked from the jump, has managed to grow on me even more, the video is fantastic, and I love the dance.

Co-sign. It's hard to believe that, as good as Shuukatsu is, we still have an even better song to look forward to. I was not expecting anything near this great from Tsubaki.

I've been ignoring the Factory groups, but this song is probably one of the best things I've heard out of HP in a while.

Kind of has a retro feel to it, doesn't it?

Wow Tsubaki really have come a long way, haven't they? I swear, I think I played that music video about 5 times today. I love music videos that keep me entertained. It's so fun. I love it. I hope the rest of the single is on top form. 

 

I find a lot of people were comparing this to WORLD ORDER. But that's it's own special kind of beast. This does that the potential to turn into a dance meme. People just randomly doing in in the streets.

This kind of feels like the less wacky sister of MomoClo's Rudo Sanka. With an filter thrown over it to make everything look super subdued. It's very gray.

 

This is funny, though:

It's the magic of Nakajima Takui and Dance*Man brought together. It's awesome

I was expecting Hana Moyou to be a ballad, so the HPS preview was a pleasant surprise. It's not AMAZING, but it's good!

This whole single is bombdotcom. Tsubaki Factory might be the hope of future generations, haha.
