So fans asked Tsunku to “pimp” their group. And Tsunku responded.
Did anyone else feel as if they were watching a musical at times all the way down to Gakisan’s pronounced flair at the end of her solo lines? All in all I thought “Majidesuka Ska!” was written as a perfect vehicle for Gen.9’s single debut and living up to the “Ska!” in “Majidesuka” it’s full of unwavering energy which you’d so want when introducing youth to an audience whereas the dance choreography provides a light and fun approach to top it all~. And it’s really the visuals that pump so much into the title track and in hindsight opting to pre~order LE’s A through D was the right decision as each exclusive DVD extra provides individual Gen.9 member “introduction” interviews where you also get a bit of a feel for possible chemistry bonds between youth and their senpai as each new member is asked about the senior girls in the group.
LE Type A: “Close up ver. type 1” + Fukumura Mizuki interview
LE Type B: “Dance shot ver. type 1” + Ikuta Erina interview
LE Type C: “Close up ver. type 2” + Sayashi Riho interview
LE Type D: “Dance shot ver. type 2” + Suzuki Kanon interview
Happily each of the four pv~extra versions I felt were unique enough and for the most part with just the exclusion of those cute stationary character member poses and the cacti watering if you were to merge all four extra~versions into one you’d get the “original” pv version =). And the “close up versions” are enjoyable here and infused with an undeniable energy with one not being so “close~up” and a lot of that has to do with Gen.9’s presence ＾ ＾。
It seems almost inevitable whenever an agency adds a substantial number of girls at once that you’re going to find at least one girl with the “awkward~smile” and it’s Ikuta Erina here…..just ask my VLC player and he’d tell you too as he snapped quite a few of them :P. Both Sayashi Riho and Fukumura Mizuki move to the front as standouts where you can just sense their confidence level’s a bit higher and most impressive for a debut while Suzuki Kanon is just a hop~skip~and a jump from becoming the next coming of Kohachan♥ which basically means: mix 1 part Zukki, 5 Hershey Chocolate bars, 1 5# bag of pure brown sugar, a case of Amp energy (be sure not to use the “sugar~free”) into a large tub. Be careful to keep stirring continuously and wa~llah! You’ll almost have another Kohachan♥ but I’m afraid that DNA is far too unique to be replicated =).
Suffice to say my early favorites♥ are between Fukuchan and Zasshi with Zasshi for me having a bit extra of that “it~*” factor edge that I’m just feeling and on a separate note I have a nagging hunch that Sayu’s secretly counting down the days (via a ticker on her pc @ home♥) till Aichan’s graduation as it’ll then signify that she’s then a go to declare officially that she’s the cutest in the group unless of course she’s already done that on her blog? (。ーωー。)。And I’m all in anticipation for the inevitable Sayu vs. Zukki cute battle royale as there can only be 1!!! (・д・`*)！！And last but not least my sincere apologies to Tsunku as I totally thought this was going to be an awkward group line~up for Momusu you know with such age differences between the girls but as always his eye for spotting and nurturing talent and knowing what works seems to prevail =). I just wonder if that oh~so~mean dance instructor lady is still around as I did see footage of her working with AKB girls……??
