It's funny it does look like the same house that Biyuuden shot their PV for "Koi suru angel heart" from the brief outside shot. At some point I was wondering if I'd see them in another room! lol. Nacchi has my favorite scenes as the outdoors scenery is refreshingly green and I love when she's walking in the clear water. She really looks like the Nacchi of old as she's gone back to her shorter hair style and it's really looking great on her! I was wondering why it was taking so long for Gocchin to pick up that glass that she knocked over but as I realized that it was floating in mid air, I wouldn't be in any rush to pick it up either. lol. I like how the regular version builds up visually to showing all 5 of them together in the same room with the nice lighting props and chairs that have been stacked haphazardly in the background so that they can have a mosh pit there later! lol. Overall a very elegantly shot video which matches the song perfectly. I previously wrote about the songs on this release as well as the packaging here but I'd like to reiterate how much Nacchi's & Gocchin's vocals really stand out in this song. They have so much control and character in their voices as vocal ability was a high priority in the early auditions when picking new members.
Before seeing it I thought the "5 shot ver." might be some sort of split screen PV or something of that nature. lol. Well it's far from that and is basically a single shot of the 5 members in that mosh pit room 😛 and although the camera does zoom in and out slightly it reminds me of Berryz Koubou's "Koi no jubaku" "smile ver." PV although theirs is much more fun to watch and the camera remains stationary throughout the PV.
If you've never watched this version of their PV here it is as it's been uploaded on You Tube. In case you're not familiar with the group history and notice that there's an 8th member in this PV, that's Maiha who's the only member to have graduated from the group. It's great how a stationary single take shot with no editing can be so entertaining! And can you feel all of the love for Momo?!! 🙂 They're wearing some of my all time favorite H!P outfits in this PV as well and Miya looks almost too cute to be real! Okay I seemed to have strayed off the path here a bit and now back to the 10th anniversary group. 😛
The making of segment opens with Gocchin using one of the funniest voices as she says "making of start!" lol. It's amusing as during the jacket shooting Nacchi has long hair but when they go to shoot the PV she's suddenly cut it! Seeing the members in candid moments is perhaps the greatest thing about these making of segments and at one point Kohachan can be seen having a bit of fun with a foam brick making it look incredibly…uh light. 🙂 The photo shoot footage is really a joy to watch as everyone's made up so beautifully. While Kohachan & Gakisan are the most stunning in this release it must be mentioned how there's so much Nacchi goodness here as well! Of course since she's my favorite H!P member, the more Nacchi the better. Nacchi at one point addresses her new hairstyle which was done during the making of this release and asks what the fans think of it. I think it's perfect! One of the best moments in the making of is when Nacchi, Gakisan, & Kohachan are together by that bar counter looking area. Nacchi is acting cutesy silly and Gakisan is off by one year on Nacchi's age which Nacchi quickly corrects while Gakisan is commenting on how in some ways they haven't changed staying away from an adult image. You can really see how just being around Nacchi would be so much fun as she really brings an aura of enjoyment with her in whatever project she's involved in. With a whopping running time of approximately 32 minutes and a very long making of segment, this DVD provides each member with a lot of individual screen time and each member in this group definitely deserves that kind of attention.
