As cute and *cuddly~*…H!P's girl~next door is, it was just a matter of time before she got the call from Hello♥Kitty~ to collaborate on a single release♪～。
Manoeri's 5th major single release was again presented in multiple versions~ with the extras being available with her type A & B CD singles~….both include an additional DVD with type A giving you "Dance Shot Ver." of the title track while type B includes her "Buranko Ver." pv~. Her accompanying pv DVD single includes in addition to the original version of her pv~, a "Close Up Ver."
"Love & Peace = Paradise" brings upon us a first for H!P as it's their very first to be kitten~ized as track 2 features much more in the way of ~meow~ meows in addition to Manoeri's already *furry~* vocals♥ (*´∀｀*)…now just who is Hello♥Kitty?..I mean vocally….??? (・c_・;)？Surely it's not Tsunku singing back~up here as he often does on select Momusu~ releases (。ーωー。)♪♪。。。
The styling is very much Chrismas~y♥like with *cozy~* and fluffy wardrobes in white o(*´∀｀)o゛and although this single isn't actually a holiday~ song it makes up so much for this by continuing Manoeri's brand~* of cute & most catchy♥ J-Pop (*´∀｀*) It however doesn't quite have the flair and attraction of some of her previous singles..and in particular "Hajimete no keiken" and "Sekai wa summer party" which I thought were most outstanding~ songs♪♪～ capturing such a *pure* sound of J-Pop~ ＾ ＾。
うわ～わわわ～っ(・o・)！！！。。。the coupling with track "18sai no kisetsu" has a very "Ob-La–Di, Ob-La-Da"~!!! sort of rhythm going on~?!!! わぁーいo(*´∀｀)o゛♥ The melody itself though is somewhat nursery rhyme sounding I think?…..wait,..
……..Manoeri is Hello♥Kitty~! (人∀`*)。。。
*Happily~* Manoeri continues to be backed~up by Hello!Project Eggs♥….although these Eggs are most accomplished now and really perhaps deserving of being graduated from that title?….a~h! it's really almost like having S/mileage with Manoeri on the very same stage in these releases~ ＾ ＾！ Please enjoy~* the music videos っo(*´∀｀)o!。。。
In addition to the original and "Close Up Ver." pvs on the pv DVD single~, there's also a look behind the scenes including the jacket photo shoot and pv making of for a running time of 19:47~. What I found most entertaining were the fun and candid *moments~* between Manoeri and the Eggs♥….and now as they've been together for quite some time, there's a special bond and closeness o(*´∀｀)o゛ that you can really feel in these scenes~…
…and ending on an amusing note~…I think it's so *cute* and maybe slightly odd how Yukarin♥'s attention seems to waver a bit during on camera conversations~ and interviews~…(^q^)! It's not in the way she's responding as she's very attentive this way….but her eyes seem to wander elsewhere all the while as she's still speaking to the camera~ (*´∀｀*)♥！
