I’ve been a loyal fan of Manoeri’s following her since her beginnings with Ongaku Gatas to her solo debut in “manopiano” and all the way through to now posting my thoughts on her development and the styles of songs she’s performed for us along the way. There have been more than a few poignant times where she’s noticeably grown vocally exploring new musical styles with all most realized in her live presence and as for her girl~next~door humble charm~♥ well that can’t be taught or truly groomed…you just have to be born with that quality which Manoeri possesses to heart~.

In hindsight it was impossible to imagine what style of production was waiting for me upon the arrival of this new single, I mean just looking at the CD jacket front and back it goes from school cutie personified by cheerleader allure to that GND warmth which I’m always mentioning in synonym with Manoeri on its reverse side. Interestingly the pv version included with the type A version of this single is being called “side B”, makes you wonder once you’ve viewed it what possibly could be in a “side A” if such an alternate vision exists. I do wonder as only single type A included a bonus DVD as the other versions include event access cards but no additional visual delights. In any case Manoeri’s upcoming Video clips 2 on wonderfully crisp Bluray has already been pre~ordered and Hello! Project has long employed the practice including exclusive alternate pv versions when timed just right with a ‘coinciding’ single release so perhaps there may after all be a ‘side A’ to speak of there…?

And now getting back to those poignant Manoeri moments, here “Song for the DATE” delivers in multiples (see I don’t exclusively use that term for orgasms* only =D ) as her vocals here are much more demanding for the title track’s vocal arrangement and even its coupling with song “Aozora ga waratteru”…the wild rock~n~roll sister has given Manoeri yet another side for fans to love and connect with.

While the poster bonus is extremely cute I’m now thinking that had it been this poster which Manoeri is seen tearing down throughout the video how cool would that have been!

This pv is like nothing seen from H!P till now and it’s especially eye opening and even more effective coming from Manoeri who’s image has been much more en route to a cute approach till now. I can’t even imagine where this was shot but it’s definitely the very aura of a post apocalyptic world of ruins and rubble and add in the dynamic editing job here complete with flashes of the look of cryptic messages perfectly timed throughout and you have something visually addictive appearing from a most, till now of unlikely of places. Add in the deep contrast in Manoeri’s light to dark wardrobe and even her much different make~up approaches for each going from innocence to wickedly hot, the days lighting leading into dusk and well all of that mysterious running and tearing down of her poster art…Manoeri’s latest leaving quite an impression!! And if you’re still in doubt of this amped up production for Manoeri here being extra special, just check the inclusion of production credits at the ending which is something you don’t normally see with H!P pvs (a long time mainstay of AKB48 pv projects) that being a quite nice move in the right direction, hoping these are signs for the future~>.

    • Wait it’d probably cost like $100 to send you the poster with all of the taxes there =P!! It is a cute one…Manoeri could be watching you while you sleep every night =D.

      This pv really does so much for this song!..and her image too really like she’s evolving all the time but no other single was quite like this one in terms of production and just how cutting edge it is..especially for her. It’s like when someone you’re most familiar with does something almost out of character in a sense and how much more effective it is that way coming from them in particular. Hmm…let’s see a good analogy of sorts could be like with Robert DeNiro….for this you’d have to go way back to before any of his mainstream comedies came out like with “Analyze This” and those “Focker….” movies when he wasn’t know for any such thing in the genre. Then he does wild comedy and everyone was so much more blown away by that as it was so out of character and even funnier because it was him being so drawn out of character…I hope that makes sense =D. Anyway I’m very very happy you enjoyed this single too..and really this pv~♥!

    Yes I have liked everthing she has done . I probably won’t buy this single but I have ordered her new blu ray DVD of her singles. She is one of the most accomplished performers I have ever seen. She is able to effortlessly handle a concert singlehandedly. Plus she is very very very sezy.

    • Nice to meet a fellow fan~♥ of Manoeri o(*´∀`)o゛!、and that is such a great point about her concert presence and how she is able to have such a stage persona on her own! I so agree and I always think she deserves even more credit as she’s a musician too which is all too rare in the idol world. I’m looking forward to her singles Bluray release~* too ^ ^。
