Manoeri♥ in NEXT MY SELFManoeri♥ in NEXT MY SELF Mano Erina NEXT MY SELF LE types A & B with first press poster

~From the initial jingle of happy piano notes….then lyrics which resonate a most unique idol’s career, words of retrospect, accomplishments a many and a ringing of a bright future to come~.

A bittersweet single as Manoeri’s♥ fast approaching graduation from Hello! Project is set for next February and this her now 13th solo single effort. First press editions include an A3 size poster as well as an event ticket with the types A & B versions also including a DVD with original music video/ close up version music video and original music video/ making of footage respectfully. The jackets feature a Manowardrobe which also appears in her pvs, always a nice touch as in the past on frequent occasions such was not the case with various H!P pvs and whether it was intended or not I totally feel a jingly ‘Christmassy’ type of melody in “NEXT MY SELF”….a sweet way for Manoeri♥ to exit H!P. And I can’t say enough of how this single and just the cumulative career and development of Manoeri♥ who literally grew up before fans’ eyes first making a most memorable splash~* in Ongaku Gatas then to a sudden soloist and how it all really peaks in the overall production and effort here. Her vocals perfectly tailored to this single and a most daring and elaborate production in the original pv where dancers posing as ‘random’ street encounters are choreographed into a musical like stage in a most ambitious ‘one~take’ approach! According to Manoeri♥ it took just two runs during the final filming to set everything just perfectly~*! (which is amazing) with the choreography itself, in tune and harmony with the upbeat euphoria that is Manoeri♥….and this song too =D and somehow it all feels so fitting for a curtain call. And coming from the gritty previous release of “Song for the DATE”, “NEXT MY SELF”, a perfect final note which radiates intensely that genki~♥ Manoaura we’ve all come to appreciate~ adore~ and love~ perfectly bookended here….with my hopes that this is not good~bye to her idol days and instead a Hello~ to her future endeavors outside of H!P. And a final word about the lyrics themselves, I applaud the extra effort on making it about Manoeri♥….whereas many others have been ‘random’ compositions even in the light of a graduation, here it’s totally a sweet tribute and in the end showing just how much Manoeri’s♥ meant to the stature and growth of Hello! Project over the years~.

It’s endearing how the nerves are going through Manoeri♥ just prior to the shooting of the ‘street’ dance scene with so many dancers and just the thought of a ‘one cut’ approach adds so much pressure to it all and how she addresses the crowd of dancers and production team after success~*!
