Maeda Atsuko Time machine nante iranai LE singles Types A & B with first press photo extras (external & internal photos)

September 18th marked the triumphant ~* return of Acchan♥ to the world of J-pop as she released her now 3rd solo single titled “Time Machine Nante Iranai” which yet again represents an all around outstanding production and a perfect follow~up to her previous two solo works in every aspect! Add in that smile ~* that personality ~* the voice ~* her charisma ~*….

This single however is her very first post her AKB career and we’re immediately reminded so vividly of how much Acchan represents the role model for all that is the mark of professionalism and that to go along with just how gorgeous Acchan is inside and out with that wonderfully unguarded smile which we’ve all come to love and adore over her tenure as idol pop royalty~.

As photographed above I opted for Acchan’s type A & B singles which both feature wonderful digipak housing (also found with Mayuyu’s latest single release) and with each first pressing you’ll additionally receive both an internal as well as external photo card extra (external photo card is a Neowing/Cdjapan exclusive). Both covers also feature lifted graphics as both the crossed out Time Machine logo along with the single/ artist titles (those graphics which appear similar to those ‘Hello My Name is’ badges;top left in pink & blue) are textured giving them a 3~dimensional feel upon the single’s glossy outer casings. Type B’s cover artwork is also a bit reminiscent of a tribute of sorts to Marilyn Monroe with her dress blowing up scene and all photo artwork was shot on location in New York.

~Type A casing & booklet~

Both versions here include a glossy lyrics/photo booklet as below are A & B’s covers as well as both booklet’s images.

Maeda Atsuko Time machine nante iranai (lyrics)

As the title suggests the overall production of “Time Machine Nante Iranai” is chock full of nostalgic flair both visually (classic 50’s diner locale) and musically as it’s intermingled with a most profoundly cute and modern touch ~*! The song itself is pure~poppy~joy~♥, the sort of song which captures both your imagination and musical taste buds within just a few notes, the style of song with that readily ‘walking on sunshine’ type of feeling to it and by the short time in which its chorus bounces around you’re already feeling addicted! And although Acchan’s idol/musical roots with AKB are now passed her it’s evident that her sole producer through that era has also tagged along most notably!!….just check out the lyrical credits as none other than the incomparable AkiP has penned not only the title track’s lyrics but also each of its coupling with songs in entirety =D.

~Making of Atsuko in NY~

In addition to the original music video single type A also includes exclusively the music video making of (a must have!!!) which takes us along for a most in depth behind the scenes look into the mv’s shooting which was completely done on location in New York! Acchan ever the professional along with her naturally photogenic personality makes for the ideal model during the various locations used for the jacket and booklet’s numerous photos and also note the photographer who’s foreign as this also applies to much of the overseas production staff for both the photography as well as the mv’s production. The editing in itself for this clip was produced so creatively utilizing everything from vintage video effects, artistically done split screens and a post production in wonderfully aesthetic coloring. Acchan’s time in NY captured so candidly making this just over 21 minute making of clip a most enjoyable ride!!

Daruma Doll

Herein we also meet the mv’s director, witness the wardrobe check and note the Daruma doll which Acchan fills in one of the eyes for the director as a gift. Traditionally the Daruma doll is gifted as both a goal and wish setter as the owner would fill in a single eye upon setting forth a goal/wish and later upon accomplishing that goal/wish the owner would then draw in the remaining blank eye paying homage to the Daruma doll bringing its fruition.

What’s great is that you can witness the actual artistic direction between the mv’s director and Acchan in numerous instances where an open dialogue can be heard and through a translator Acchan nails each and every task of the day’s shooting to easy perfection ~*. And be on the look out for a fun exchange where Acchan’s learning some new street lingo~~>such as….’wut up!!’ =D And here the director too is learning from Acchan some useful Japanese phrases in between shooting to pass the time….watch for the director to also sneakily video~bomb Acchan during one of her commentary clips lol…(^q^)! Really just one of the much more immersive and candid mv making of clips and so much can be said of the chemistry between the foreign director and staff which Acchan remarks in closing commentary as being such a totally different experience from any of her prior Japanese staffed mv shoots and it seems that Acchan has made more than a few friends♥ here (*´∀`*) ♪~♪。

While both types A & B’s DVD includes the original music video, type B includes exclusively a behind the scenes look into Acchan’s Sapporo rehearsals which date back to late July leading up to her graduation concert held just a bit later. The rehearsals seen here are for Acchan’s solo performances during the AKB48 live event, which included all three of her solo single title tracks. Also included is a digest of her actual live performances which proved to be an emotional whirlwind as expected.

    Hi! Thank you for your excellent post. My copy of Type A is still in transit, so now I’m even more impatient to receive it, as it looks and sounds so wonderful! For many people, and I’m one of them, Acchan was the heart of AKB48, and remains so.

    • Her voice, her laughter…Acchan’s so uniquely wonderful and just lucky for us that we have so much to look back on with all of her time in AKB. Such a perfectly tailored song for her and it’s catchy times a million!! Can’t wait for you to see the making of clip which is one of the very best I’ve seen yet and with the director speaking in English it adds such a different dynamic to entire project, love how they developed such a chemistry in such a short period of time and that goes for her photographer too. Even Acchan remarked on how different it was simply working with the crew in the NY and it looks like she had a lot of fun with everyone and in particular that one taller fellow who was always assisting her personally. Love love this single!!!….heading towards being an ipod most played too =).

        Still hasn’t arrived…but an eBay seller kindly gave me a free gift of the Taiwan release of Type D, so I’ve been listening to that. Beautiful songs indeed! I noticed that Jpdorama have DVDs of the shows in which she’s acted, I’ve not seen any of these yet. ‘Ending Planner’ sounds quite dark, but ‘Kasuka na kanojo’ and ‘Q10’ look like fun. Have you seen any of these?

        • That’s so sweet~♥ of the seller!! =D So far I’ve fallen in love with Acchan’s drama series “Q10” and actually had written an entire review for it but then it coincided with my blog hiatus then and so it still remains in one of my notebooks xD, a prequel though to this post which never became is here….

          https://morningberryz48.wordpress.com/2010/10/19/so-youre-a-guy-with-no-particular-romantic-aspirations-until/

          Acchan’s really perfect in it playing a robotic love interest which develops so unexpectedly with results well worth a roundtable discussion…it really creates an open dialogue about love, perception and relationships…our values in that sense. It’s cute, definitely worth your time, if you can’t find a subtitled DVD version I could send you a link =).

            Q10 sounds really good. The copy from jpdorama comes with the usual wonderful English mis-translation! But thanks for offering the link. I didn’t realise it was such an old show: 2010. Round about the same time as Majisuka Gakuen. She was perfect in that, as we’ve agreed before.

            • Sorry I didn’t realize, I tend to watch without subs unless there’s company with me =P. I wonder if you could find a fansub? The drama was quite popular so I imagine someone may have done it. There’s some wonderfully offbeat humor in it and just an overall endearing drama to watch =). U~n “Majisuka Gakuen” really in a class all its own!

        Have just watched ‘Atsuko Maeda in New York’. So enjoyable! The filming of the pv looked so much fun, and isn’t Acchan so professional, which must make working with her so straightforward. You’re right about it being one of the best ‘making ofs’. It also reminded me of those 1980s idol videos, where they’re walking around in an exotic location, radiating happiness. There’s one or two of Minamino Yoko basically on holiday in the Bahamas etc
        This may be of interest (or not): the same director’s other music videos. Quite a mix of bands. Being a Taylor Swift fan, I watched that one all the way through. http://www.blackdogfilms.com/directors/uk/declan-whitebloom/

        • It was by far one of the very best making of documentaries yet and I’m in total agreement as Acchan is the very makeup of professionalism and charisma and just how easily she was able to work with even directors of photography and video who didn’t speak her language was awe inspiring ~*…albeit there was a translator at many instances they just had a natural connection between them which transcends any language barrier. Acchan looked to be making such good friends too with the assistant on set…you know that guy…yup that guy =). Thank you that’s so cool!!!! I was thinking that he must be a well established director but I had no idea that he was this well established!…his directing collaborations with stars speaks volumes about his talent and ability to work with others. Taylor Swift would definitely make my girl crush♥ list =).

            I loved when Acchan was learning ‘What up?!’ and ‘Yo!’ So funny. She did appear to be bonding very well with that guy: lots of teasing and punches! Taylor Swift was on a chat show over here, last year or the year before, and had such a likeable personality.

            • That was so cute and funny….and to think that those were the phrase choices for teaching her due in part due to their locale is the best =D! You just rarely see interactions like that whenever you watch any music video productions shot in Japan with a Japanese crew and director, such a different environment for sure and Acchan even mentions that very aspect of filming overseas with a foreign director near the ending…I thought that was great. I’ve read an interview with her not too long ago, she does come across as being very personable for sure.
