~○○S/mileage with a touch of Chaplin

This is so much Tsunku @ his creative best!!..and while the song writing is truly aimed at a younger audience you still gotta love Tsunku's playful mood for S/mileage's 2nd major release "○○Ganbaranakutemo eenende!!" and with the look I initially had a flash~back of Tanpopo's "Otome pasta ni kandou." Next to the original pv versions I'm most attracted to "dance shot" versions mostly as it's a chance to see the complete choreography so here I opted for single type A (for the inclusion of the "dance version" pv) along with the must have pv DVD single release~*. Also so happy~* that Tsunku continues to keep S/mileage a "J~Pop" styled group as many times the leap from indies to major results in a sound shift to mainstream R&B which we have such an abundance of already.

S/mileage releases can be ordered here @ Cdjapan.

S/mileage releases can be ordered here @ YesAsia.

S/mileage releases can be ordered here @ HMV Japan.

And with S/mileage channeling the classic look of silent film/comedian icon Charlie Chaplin ↓↓↓↓。。。!

..it's just so adorable and funny!! And with the magic of awesome editing fans are treated to such a lively and entertaining music video~♥, couple that with an alternate (visual) version of the original pv, an alternate (audio) version of the title track in "Ganbaranakutemo iindayo!!" and third audio track "Smile bijin" giving this a very much "maxi" appeal and you have a most attractive single release package which Pony Canyon is so known for throughout the years~. And every track?…cute!! cute!! cute!!

And as always with S/mileage, their "making of" extras are always the most candidly amusing to watch……oh and we also learn that Sakirin~* holds the record @ 5 minutes and 34 seconds for her ability to balance a cane upon her open palm while Yukarin~♥ is total~fail (・д・`*)!!。。still she does the best Chaplin/Monopoly Man/Pringle Guy impersonation (。ーωー。)笑。
