If someone can edit the title and switch the two songs around


It's Jinsei Blues / Seishun Night.....no B-side ether

Okubo Kaoru has done some great work for H!P, so I'm cautiously optimistic.

I'm pretty lukewarm with this whole single, but overall I like Jinsei Blues much better than Seishun Night and I'm glad it's getting top billing over Seishun.


But honestly, I just want Morning Musume to get some quality music videos. The rest of the H!P groups have gotten at least one amazing music video this year. Morning Musume deserve the same treatment. Down with the glorified dance shots and close ups! Give me something amazing UF!

Seishun Night sounds like something oldschool Musume would've put on an album (1st-3rd album - except for the "ENJOY YEAH YEAH YEAH" parts. Those are annoying.).

Jinsei Blues sounds interesting, honestly. I kind of love and hate it at the same time. It reminds me a lot of German Schlager (as IchVermisseDenSommer at H!O has mentioned already) - something that could easily be played at every over-30 party in every village and bring easily everybody to the dance floor. Especially the chorus. I guess that's why I love-hate it.


When it comes to MVs I'm pretty sure Jinsei Blues will get the Jiyuu na Kuni Dakara treatment (let's hope they won't use parchment paper again). Not sure about Seishun Night, it could be more funky like Furari Ginza or just lazy like A Gonna.

A lot of MM musical tropes in Seishun Night, and it bores me. Jinsei Blues is a lot more interesting, and the chorus is nice and catchy. It's not at all what I was expecting, which was one of those cringey blues songs H!P trots out every few years or so, so this is a pleasant surprise.

Yeah I like Jinsei Blues better too.  Seishun Night sounds like a good old fashioned H!P throwback but doesn't stick out to me.  I dunno, I could change my mind, but that doesn't seem to happen as much in a post-Tsunku world.

When I heard the title Jinsei Blues, I automatically thought of Kobushi Factory’s song and instantly didn't want Morning Musume to have a song like that. Because it would have been super cringey.

I know they changed the dance for Seishun Night but it was so forgettable for me I forgot to see what it was like. The dance usually gives you an indicator on how they are going to move forward with the music video.

Neither of these songs has me very excited but I'm in camp Seishun Night.  H!P has a lot of songs like it already but I feel like it's been awhile since Momusu have had one, so I'll take it.  They also have a lot of songs like Jinsei Blues, but that's a sound I associate with an era of the group I really didn't enjoy at all so...


Overall, this is just another paint-by-the-numbers single from them.  They're further cementing this group as the most boring of their roster.

Dang Limited A actually looks pretty cool. Everything else is okay, could be better, could be worse.

Lim A is pretty good, Reg A is alright, the B's are meh, and the Special Edition is dumpster juice.

I'm laughing so hard at the special edition it's not even funny.  I'm digging the Jinsei Blues outfits though.

Pretty usual H!P covers for now. Never been less excited for a MM'19 release in a while.

My faith in this single keeps falling lower and lower. (When it comes to Hello!Project, If you set your expectations low, it's easier to get surprised.)

Just please, give them a good MV. Just one. That's all I'm asking for. 

Jinsei's outfits are giving me 1,2,3 Breaking Out vibes. Anyone else getting that?

Erina is the only one that looks “sexy” for Jinsei Blues and everyone else looks like they’re going camping.

Morning Musume finally embracing their campy image. But with the wrong kind of campy.  :girlie:
