I enjoyed Lovepedia’s music video mainly because it was a good introduction for the new girls and background girls.

No Way Way, look at all that Kaga love! That was clearly her coming out video. You go girls, get that spotlight.


I like this new 2020 distribution, let’s keep that up UF.

Reina was giving serious Eri vibes in Lovepedia.

Now I wish K&K was on a different single. Give me THIS Morning Musume. I didn’t realize how hungry I was for the next generation to step forward as much as I love Sakura, Mizuki and Masaki.


Even Maria and Erina didn’t bother me. That’s rare.

Chisaki can go sit in a corner though. Unless she can finally devote herself to Morning Musume now that Country Girls is dead and change her ways. She needs a real reset.

"LOVEPedia" has sort of won me over, if for no other reason than it's almost all 13-15 gen. Mei's solo is adorbs, and I think she's the future lead singer, unless Rio takes it from her. Could go either way, but I'm just excited that Morning Fucking Musume finally has multiple young guns with the potential to be future centers.

 

I really couldn't care less about "No Way Way".

 

EDIT: Listen closely at 3:38 of LOVEpedia for a very old-school hip hop sample.Damn, that's sweet, lol!

Some of the hyperbole I've seen surrounding K&K is hilarious. Personally, I like it.

I wouldn't mind seeing this pattern going forward. Not the shared melody thing, but each A side featuring a different set of girls.

I was wrong about K&K having grown on me as much as it was going to, because the parts I like (everything except the verse) I really like. It's my favorite track on this single.

 

Angerme has been working the multiple A-side format to give almost every member some burn since they became Angerme, so it's nice to see MM finally adopt the same strategy.

My brain has already started singing “Ningen kankei no way way lovepedia” and I’m just thinking of how much of a nightmare it will be trying to memorize these and inevitably mixing everything up

Very happy to see some back girls featured and to have them shake up like distribution for once! Lovepedia was very cute!

YES same, I've been doing the same thing lol! I imagine it's easier for them to remember because of the differences in dance--might help them stay on track with the song they're doing. I'm wondering if they'll ever mess up live though lmao

ugh, I love Lovepedia. This is the first single from MM since Jama Shinaide that I've played on repeat. The three new girls really give me like, 4th gen vibes (maybe because Mei's look and voice reminds me a lot of Tsuji/Kago? idk she's just adorable lol) and they've invigorated my faith in an eventual real comeback for MM as a group.

 

but okay like also, why is "Do Your Ears Hang Low" in the breakdown of Ningen Kankei ????? sometimes the sabotage seems so intentional

Same! I have no idea about music, so it's nice to see it described (instruments, beats, sounds, etc.) Helps give me some idea of what-is-what on the technical side.

 

I have to agree with your views on all three songs, as usual. I hated KOKORO & KARADA at first.... But what I've come to find out is I pretty much hate the verses. The pre-chorus and chorus I like, because I like the "grand" sound in songs (think Dokyuu no Go Sign.)

Thanks guys! I really want to post about every release this year, at a minimum, and any big news, too. I'm also probably gonna start doing some click-baity type "Top Such and Such" lists. I'm happy people are enjoying it.

Yeah but can we talk about that debuting JE group that sold over 700k first day? What kind of deal with the devil did they strike to make that happen?

It was actually two groups, and Oricon combined all of their sales despite being from different labels.

Makes way more sense. Still very impressive though.
