AKRamen♥48 part 1

ramen...

Realizing that I’ve done poorly at keeping up with so many AKB (and family) releases over the past months, much of it not helped by my extended hiatus from blogging, I’ve decided to place much of (but not all) their releases here. The daunting thing is that normally whenever I post an AKB (and family) single release it on average takes me anywhere from 6 to 8 hours + to complete a single entry (including encoding, scans, caps, write~up, photos, mp3s, DVD extra features, formatting post images and post format, uploading time, and nonsensical random thoughts) so with so many releases appearing in a single post I’m going to do them all ramen♥ review style~ with ‘abbreviated’ capping and no extra DVD content this time around and include only the songs with music videos if only I can hold myself back =P. Truth be told this is probably still going to take awhile xD! three days with a whopping 3 hours and 25 minutes just to upload the pics and text less the video (with my given free time to blog here =) ) And I bet you’re wondering how in the world can ramen and music be adjacent with one another on any parallel distinction? Let’s see how about:

スープ (soup) = musical genre/style
麺 (men/ noodles) = vocals, harmonies
具 (gu/ ingredients) = instrumentation, arrangement, choreography

Maximum ☆☆☆☆☆ (5 star scale)

Haha okay this is a great way to online~journal a lot of past single releases all at once which I missed out on posting here, plus just the thought of ramen♥ is making me hungry (*´∀`*) ♪!

~AKB48 “Eien Pressure”~

(released on December 5th, 2012)

AKB48 Eien Pressure single type C

One of the coolest and most original packaging ideas ever! AKB48’s “Eien Pressure” singles feature a house craft packaging where the single itself can be folded to form a tiny home~♥. All discs are beautifully picture labeled with outer clear slipcase and the first press editions all included a Neowing photo as well as two randomly inserted member photos featuring AKB48, HKT48, NMB48 and SKE48! And I know it’s a very lucky day when Yuko’s♥ photo is included!!!

The full length video is 12 minutes long however I’ve edited out to include only the music portion here, SKE48’s “Tsuyogari dokei” is in a word….depressing! The entire storyline is so depressing and yet this song has such a lively choreography which is much more power oriented, but nonetheless heartbreaking =(. Maybe minus the movie portion you won’t cry though, so the stand alone music part isn’t quite as sad without all of the lead in context as to why the three leads are devastated and in tears, maybe easier to watch.

Did I mention just how darling these girls are?….if some of their dance poses don’t make you blush, oh who am I kidding of course they will! And that one girl who appears to be the center alongside Sasshi, I’m not sure of her name yet but she sure knows how to ham♥ it up ala Airiin style  っo(*´∀`)o!

Firstly Acchan’s solo version of “Sakura no hanabira” is lovely and it’s really such a variance from the slightly more upbeat group ensemble vocal version, both great. This song so symbolic and immaculately chosen for her live graduation song and while many idols never get the appreciated and celebrated sending off which they deserve, this one for Acchan is positively the most memorable ever, and just done so right. The falling cherry blossoms, Acchan afloat for her sea of fans and the entire flow and concept of this video and how it chronologically spans Acchan’s time in AKB48 from the then now, her graduation night, then proceeding going backwards in time in a beautiful and heartfelt collage. Happy and tearful in memories, the challenges and triumphs and in the beginnings of it all there was Acchan…..for her audition, a growth into idol~hood for the ages.

It’s a bit of irony when your second ‘solo’ single isn’t so solo after all, however with Anrire comprised of Kawaei Rina, Kato Rena, and Iriyama Anna the Ri in Anrire makes it all okay at the end of the day =). Overall I didn’t find this song to be too engaging or memorable compared to Sasshi’s first solo single but it’s still a wonderful way to promote her t.v. drama as well as her fellow AKB family members.

I’m always weary of the ‘Amelie’ effect, like you see a movie and loooooove is so much and then declare it to be the best movie of all time for yourself! Truth is that our loves while they can be fleeting can also be very much in the moment and with any experience only the test of time will truly say whether such any highest of the highest praise is worthy. So today with nearly 7 months past since the release of Gingham Check I can say with much more confidence that this music video is the VERY BEST IN IDOL♥ VIDEOS THAT I’VE EVER LOVED TO DATE. Of course there’s nostalgia and landmark music videos which will endlessly challenge, but all ‘Amelie’ effect kidding aside this one’s truly special.

I know it’s supposed to be a five star scale however “Gingham Check” gets 6!!! Simply one of the best pvs like ever!!! And Yuko being the center is the cherry on top~♥ and how can one not be entertained by this non stop barrage of genre and movie magic which hits with themes of action, horror, romance, monsters and fantasy all intermingled with sharp pizazz! Add that “Gingham Check” the song is an absolute gem with instant allure and catchiness written all over and one which makes you want to sing along aloud readily from it’s first chorus. The visual treat of “Gingham Check” (fun x’s 1,000,000) equals eye candy and stimulation to hearts content and this one, it’s got infinite replay value for the endless dreamer in all of us. And the wardrobes? Now that’s how U use seXy♥.

Part ballad…part dance “Fui ni”’s a hybrid at heart, and AKB48’s most stylish Tomochin launched her very own fashion wear collection in collaboration with Samantha Vega coinciding with the release of this second solo single, the Tomomi Itano Collection Summer 7 Days Style. And just like with her debut “Dear J”, the packaging is stylish as well with even the liner notes/lyrics jacket being printed on extra thick and textured paper giving it an almost vinyl feel and each LE also comes with a sticker matching to its gorgeous cover shot.

    Wow! An amazing, jam-packed post. I love your enthusiasm. It’s addictive, too. If I hadn’t bought these releases already, I’d be ordering them right now. Your many scans remind me that there’s so much of interest in each release, as the B-sides are very rewarding, and that you really do need all the versions, if finances permit it. I wasn’t keen on ‘Eien Pressure’ at first hearing, but really like it now. Ditto ‘So Long!’. The movie pv is remarkable, and I”m slowly working my way through the subtitles and inter-titles to get a better understanding of what’s going on. Though gloomy, ‘Tsuyogari dokei’ is a remarkable pv, cleverly filmed so that the shocks are all the more shocking. While I love the Not Yet release featured here, my favourite song of theirs is ‘Naminori kakigori’, which has a beautiful melody. And my favourite of their pvs is the one for ‘Suika Baby’. I’ve watched that countless times. Great, great fun!

    • The producers are always so smart in how they include so many must haves with each different edition causing us fans to part with additional money each time =P! I did this a short while back when I had fallen so far behind with posting AKB and family releases xD…I mean I really fell behind and especially since I had taken off almost a year or so from blogging so I missed out on sharing so much. I always think that I’d like other fans to get their singles too so that’s always in mind whenever I post releases..just a way to share and hopefully allure fans and new fans alike =). So many title tracks have incredible entire little movies leading them in…it’s breathtaking to see how much thought and effort they put into these singles time and time again…AKB is second to none at this I think. U~n for me too sometimes with repeated listening/ watching I become much more into songs..it’s like they click suddenly as if I’m hearing new aspects of songs at times and then I’m hooked~♥…and the added visuals and story lines add so much too to that added allure. Not yet is one of my most beloved units!!..although lol my bias with Yuko, Sasshi, Kitarie and Yui~chan play into that a lot =P!! Still their songs are truly catchy and I sooooo love all of their music videos!!!! “Suika Baby”….I love this single!!! Had a lot of fun with it here:

      Now the extras on these singles are definite must haves!!..just seeing the four of them interact is so cute and funny.

        Such extras as the ones you mention are good incentive for learning Japanese. I’d love to be able to ‘hear’ the conversations between tracks on the ‘AKB ga ippai’ collection. Thank for the link, which I shall click on now…

        • OH yes their music video collections!! I love how the girls comment candidly in between videos giving insight into them too. I just saw that they have a third massive music video collection on the way soon, I still need to pre~order it!
