Not sure if George Harrison would have duG this but I have to say it’s absOlutely irresistible!!! Okay honestly as the first notes and vocals hit me ala happy~go~lucky rock♥ I was having a tinny bit of an out of body experience as in I was so imagining Kohachan singing this song on no less than 3 Red Bulls and a long afternoons napping =D…..
Initially what’s happily~* astonishing about this pv DVD single which CdJapan has offered exclusively outside of Hello! Project’s official shop to fans on a very limited basis (wooh it’s already out of print) is that it has a running time of 50 minutes =O!!! Yep pv DVD singles aren’t typically anywhere near as long even with the ‘main groups’” releases so this is really special for Maimai. Mind you over the years I’ve had a bit of trouble adapting to her nick Hagitty as Maimai was first and then there’s Dj Maimai which is a timeless visual in C-ute’s history….
..and while we’re on the subject of Dj Maimai I thought we’d reminisce their 2006 performance in that cute tiny venue known as Yomiuraland East…sort of sounds like theme park…well it could very well be as I’ve never been there =P. Anyway Dj Maimai owns this song completely!!! Also adore these pink outfits eternally~♥! But most importantly why I’ve chosen to reminisce about this performance in particular is to lay light upon Maimai’s vocals and her voice itself while speaking as hers has been about as unique of a voice imaginable….it’s most sweetly and innocently nasally in a most c~ute and good way with just a hint* of basil and citrus =P!!

Okay getting back to Maimai’s solo pv DVD single you see with 50 minutes of run time there’s a whopping five versions of this song’s pv♥ included and also a 25 minute making of segment too! I’ve narrowed them down to my favorite three versions to include here which I am most addicted to which are the original version, a stairway Close Up Version and the natural & rock version and speaking of rock and with so many versions recorded it got me wondering why there wasn’t a “Hendrix Version” of the pv too??
I mean she’s got the strat thing going strong…the pink hair attire ala Blossom/Takamina…the Nair short~shorts so why doesn’t it all inevitably lead up to this ↓ ?
One wonders (・c_・;)？Or is it just me (・c_・;)？
Oh and by the way if you’re thinking about not watching this Sagsousuke (we spoke about this a few weeks ago) and you too out there keep in mind that poor Maimai absolutely froze her butt making this all possible for you～ (*´∀｀) うれしー♥♥♥！Oh no don’t thank me now but after you’ve clicked on play several times (￣▽￣)！！
~Maimai freezing her butt just for you making this きゃぁーっっっ(/∇＼*)！~
~Hagiwara Mai “Yuke! Genki~kun” (original pv)~
As I watched Maimai’s~♥ solo DVD and repeated to hear “Yuke! Genki~kun” in each of its incarnations on screen it went from being giddily surreal~Koharu♥ to addictively catchy!!!!! That melody. After a short while you can’t fight it…it’s as cute as a kitten or a puppy that depending on whether you’re a cat person or a dog person to begin with so just to be sure here I’ve included both analogies =D.
Feel Maimai’s air guitar albeit with an actual guitar =P…feel the happy~* rhythm and rhyme…that adorably nasally voice which time thankfully hasn’t matured any ー(*￣Ｏ￣)ノ！…the irresistible urge to set your guitar on fire (if you have one…although I don’t recommend it! Only rock stars like Jimi and Maimai are capable of pulling that feat off with true meaning…(^q^)! )…but most of all keep an open mai~nd =D.
