I had so many questions in mind when this pre~order first appeared like what is an “Oha Girl” and I was thinking this perhaps may be a tie~in with an anime series? This single actually is a Hello! Project collaboration with a children’s morning t.v. program titled “Oha Suta” an abbreviation for “Good morning studio” and there, “Oha Girls” have appeared in a variety of “flavors” and colors over the years with their most famous past notable Oha Girls being Ueto Aya and Suenaga Haruka~♥!! Oha Girl Maple is Erika, Shiori & Saki =)…..and speaking of Saki…
Awesome baton twirling~*~~* takes center stage with both songs and you’ll be so so impressed by how much choreography was put into this production in creating a true marching band feel with so many involved and during the middle break there’s some amaaaaaaaazing baton~twirling!!! No doubt S/mileage was challenged here too, but the Oha Girls with all of their twirling~*~~* surely had the biggest learning challenge and there’s an abundance of cute bloopers you can view in their making of footage which is included on the extra DVD. So much pressure to as Shiori is brought to tears at on point during filming….=(. And have you ever tried baton~twirling?….I would hit myself in the head multiple times :P. You can also check up on sizing~up the right baton, event information and mini~movies by visiting: http://wpp.jp/mira-spi-baton/ I wouldn’t be surprised if “My School March” is actually a marching band standard and it’s a most sweet~sweet♥ melody they’ve written here! This is such a cute release =)!!
I’m so happy they also shot a pv♥ for the coupling with song “Morning Chime!!!” which is pure Oha~Girl and pure upbeat J~Pop and to hear the isolated marching band perform there’s also a “brass band version” in addition to karaoke versions for both tracks ＾＾♥

Seeing Erika I couldn’t help but thinking that she so much resembles in my imagination how a young Riichan morphed together with Airiin would look, act and sound っo(*´∀｀)o！、．．don~cha think.
