AKB48 Kimi wa melody single types A, B, C, D & EGorgeous isn’t it!

Released on March 9th, “Kimi wa melody” is AKB48’s 43rd single which has already reached over 1.2 million in sales over its first week! And while scrolling through all five RE booklets down till here you may have gotten a sort of a familiar feeling with the all out rush of vibrant color schemes and styling I wonder? Yup! think “Heavy Rotation” in particular and while Ninagawa Mika has directed a couple more musical videos for Family48 in the past, this former director’s cut in particular has all of the colorful flair and eye~catching visuals which have been a longtime trademark look for this accomplished artist. You may also recall Ninagawa Mika as having been the photographer whom shot (Oshima) Yuko’s most recent shashinshuu “Nugi yagare!” albeit that in itself is an entirely different story ^^*.

“Kimi wa melody” was commercially released in five editions (11 if including both Regular & Limited versions along with their theatrical exclusive release) and with the RE & LE’s song and video contents being mirror images, here I went with types A through E: all regular editions as the LE’s extra is an event ticket which would only make sense having if one were going to be in Japan at said time for this event. It is notable that every version across the board features unique cover art-work but you’d have to be sort of nutty + rich to consider getting them all (*≧▽≦)!Myself being just nutty…(^q^)! While every version’s DVD includes both the title track and second MV, each version also includes an exclusive music video, hence the need to get them all…. darn you! you wallet hurting/marketing evil genius (*≧∀≦)☆★ ↓!

AKB48 Kimi wa melody jacket booklet scans (1)

Why the return of four upper Senbatsu girls you might ask? Well consider the momentous celebration this single/song represents as it’s literally the group’s 10th anniversary single release! \(^o^)/ ☆ !!Also tie in the most notable graduations of Sae and first Gen. member Takamina who’s not only a founding member of the group but also their longtime manager as well ( ┰_┰) 。Seems that the former Senbatsu’s crashing of AKB48’s Kouhaku Utagassen appearance this past New Year’s eve was truly a sign of things to come as here the aforementioned notable quartet of Acchan, Yuko, Mariko & Tomochin all make their tour de force presence felt in this gorgeously shot MV!! However not to be outdone is the MV’s center here Sakuratan~♡…. just sayin’ REALLY! And of course my OSHI Mayuyu~♡!!~!

Start with the girls’ AMAZING kimono wardrobes as they are as uniquely tailored as muchAKB48 in Kimi wa melody.. (86) as they are runway ready!!!! Color and art direction with the sets also no doubt a direct influence of one Ninagawa Mika’s directorial visions and despite “Kimi wa melody”’s somewhat of a whimsical groove, you dig deeper into its lyrics and this song is truly a heartfelt gem! “Kimi wa melody” in a nutshell speaks of one’s most treasured of melodies within a song from their past, where at a moment of its sounding all of those deeply embedded memories come rushing back in a moment. Songs we collect within our consciousness over time depending on their direct connection (at those times) to particular life events, through happiness, through sadness, friendships and losses are always like triggers inside of us just waiting to be sprung in an instant and here “Kimi wa melody” really captures that aura of these musically nostalgic memories and gems each and everyone holds within themselves. And the more you replay this song the more you appreciate the bitter~sweetness of the music itself….. truly a gorgeous melody and lyric^^*.

So much so that it certainly receives the “coveted”…

Message” (mv)~

AKB48 Kimi wa melody jacket booklet scans (1)

While the “next generation senbatsu” girls star in this mini MV/movie of sorts… it’s none other than Mukaichi Mion who’s up front and center here as social media meets idols. It wasn’t too long ago that I re-watching last season’s “Modern Family” (btw: the funniest current-long running comedy on television!!) and while on  some level I often daydream~* of being married to the character Phil Dunphy as it’d be both endlessly hilarious albeit endlessly hazardous (・д・`*)!!、…. “LA LA LA Message” immediately brought to mind that episode where they shot the entire thing within social media REALLY literally!~! Quite the creative feat no question! Anyway wouldn’t it be absolutely fun if an AKB48 MV was shot just like that? I mean begin just like this MV for “LA LA LA Message” but instead we’d begin with Paruru’s pc just because Um… well I just want to know what’s on there (。ーωー。)笑!Here the song itself isn’t anywhere near the memorable likes of the title track we just heard….. it’s cute but pretty generic for the most part I felt and yet the MV here makes up for a lot of the enjoyment as the powers of idols + cameras & social media = adorably fun collage ^^*.

AKB48 Kimi wa melody jacket booklet scans (1)

SKE48’s Goto Rara serves as the center for “Gonna jump”  (single type A’s exclusive music video) and what’s not to love about this MV as it’s shot quite like a Family48 theater performance, middle walkway and center stage not withstanding =P.

And you gotta love how AkiP frequently manages to dream up rambunctiously rockin’ arrangements only to have the girls’ sweet ensemble vocals wrap it all up into a somewhat of a ballad? =)

And yet none of the aforementioned happens to be this MV’s “most” Umm “memorable” visuals!!

You see…..

Here’s single type B’s exclusive music video as thy ever lovely Sayaka performs as center here as NMB48 captures one of my favorite choreographed scenes, that being the rooftop dance choreography! Never gets old really and while you move to the euphoric keyboard~drippin’ melody there’s also a deep deep teaching tool at work here as well within its visuals. YUP! the awesomeness of sportsmanship is on full display just like one of those public service CMs you see quite frequently on t.v. on any given day =)! Opponent suffers an injury during the race and there you stop to render aid so that you can all finish together~♥ ^^*….. OH Crap wait!!! (・д・`*)!!!it was all an act!

AKB48 Kimi wa melody jacket booklet scans (16)

Our reigning queen of idols~Sasshi~♡ serves as center here as “Make noise” (single type C’s exclusive music video) emphatically states how less can certainly be much more when it comes to the makings of a dynamic backdrop! Through the editing between light and shadow with thy perfectly placed mirror the girls of HKT48 are easily this single’s most dance choreographically dynamic and it’s not even close! Sleek, sexy and provocative are the first adjectives to come to mind as the dance inferno that is “Make noise” teaches us yet again on exactly how to use sexy*!!! And while this high energy synth~y dance track may not be the most musically memorable, when coupled with its MV’s visuals I dare you to try and misplace the memory of one smoldering~adora~cute Sakuratan each time she graces your screen whether seducingl~y (today’s made up word! \(^o^)/ ☆) solo or not ………(゜∀゜)………。!!!

And here’s single type D’s exclusive music video! As Takahura Moeka serves as center for YES! NGT48’s long awaited debut!!!! With my personal long time favorite Kitarie~♡ venturing into this new Family48 group it’s most exciting to finally hear/see them after learning of the group’s launch for some time now!…. although I must ask where is Yukirin?? (・c_・;)?And while the MV’s opening chimes in rather like a “stranger in a strange land” meeting =P…. we’re soon greeted by the song’s gentle opening and while I’m sure you’re most aware of AkiP’s love and quest to bring about a resurgence of golden 70’s~80’s true J-Pop, the kind free from outside musical genres of influence… here NGT48 is honored with this single releases’ only truly pure J-Pop composition =)! Love how the MV moves from a very Brrrrrr!!!! very cold outside to the home theater of NGT48 and did I  mention just how wonderfully catchy this song is!! Every J~hook within its verses and soaring chorus, this song is just perfect! And likewise an immaculate introduction to NGT48 ^^*.

And so without question NGT48’s “Max toki 315-gou” receives the “coveted”…

~Nogizaka AKB “Mazariau mono” (mv)~

AKB48 Kimi wa melody jacket booklet scans (31)

And now we’ve reached this single’s final visual track “Mazariau mono” (single type E’s exclusive music video) which is performed by the magic of morphing Nogizaka46 ~~> AKB48 which also means adding in a bit of SKE48 and HKT48 with the likes of Jurina, Sasshi and Sakura for wonderful measure =)! Here Kojiharu performs as the MV’s center ^^.

It seems that Family48 has indeed saved the creepiest for last here (・д・`*)!!!LOL! =P as this MV for “Mazariau mono” plays along not unlike just like one of your creepy neighbors who’s got both a tick~ and an entire aura of cryptic goodness about them (・_・)。I go back to “Mulholland Drive”, my top tier pick for all things cryptic, only here I’m most thankful~♥ that one AkiP didn’t include an extra liner note inside the case like David Lynch did all those cryptic years ago where he went on to explain just how to re-watch his movie (knowingly you would be confused and fail…(*>ω<)!) and then specifically look to decipher his cryptic signs within his overly cryptic movie (-∀-`)。Here we can enjoy all of the AkiP cryptic~ness until its final frames where we after thoroughly studying and re-watching and re-watching again the girls’ body language while in that car we come to realize that:

A) Perhaps neither Jurina, Kojiharu or Sakura knows where the keys are =O

B) This entire affair is not unlike the odyssey that is The Stepford Wives only this time it’s in the snow =O

or

C) (gulp!) Sakuratan doesn’t know how to drive  (*≧▽≦)!

Whew! “not so cryptic” after all you see (。ーωー。)笑!

Of course I only kid because I care…(^q^)!

    RE: “fan released balloons* just happen to remind you of something quite different??”
    I was thinking “spoons” like in a fancy ice cream shop at first, but now that you have taken me there .. yes .. it does …

    Nice job of capturing the emotions of the audience.

    • LOL “emotions of the audience” =P! Ohhh that is both funny and frightening at the same time…. although I do wonder if I’m the only one who thought that instantly the moment they went up in the air?

    • Ah your Oshi♥! I thought the variety and styling of the music videos in this single release were so amazing and well produced all around. The title track “Kimi wa melody” and NGT48’s debut being my most favorite of the bunch o(*´∀`)o゛ ~♡。

        • Kitarie~♡ is my main draw towards NGT48 no question!! Was excited to finally hear/see a song release from them. I would like to get to know the girls much better from programs like that but sadly I don’t get enough free time these days, unlike when Monusu was fab…. back then I’d watch H!M and then even HM@ religiously. HKT48’s my new obsession =D!

            • As in their theater concerts? I do own a lot of their stage CDs but I haven’t watched a whole lot of those live concerts. Do they post them online regularly? If they’re on the official AKB48 Youtube channel I can’t watch them as the U.S. has oddly been blocked from viewing them anymore… strange really as there are a lot of fans of theirs here =(.

              So true! H!M in particular when they went to their 45 minute format was absolutely the best idol program on television!! Family48 could use a lot of their ideas for inspiration~* =D.

                • Ah I don’t do torrents, no wonder I haven’t seen those. I imagine fans must film these sometimes? I always imagined that hello online did hello! Project only, so they do like AKB48/FAMILY48 too =).

    Ah, I just saw AKB perform this song live. Sakura tan holds this song together live. She truly does. I only wished they had been dressed up like they were in the MV when I saw them. I still was impressed though.
    My only gripe is that Mika knows how to do beautiful colors and textures in MV’s she films, but she retread old ground with this MV and thought perhaps that using Kimonos instead of lingerie would somehow make me and everyone else forget that this is essentially the same video as Heavy Rotation, minus the sexiness, or the innocence of high school love and friendship between the girls being on full display? I mean, it’s great that some of the biggest names in AKB joined in for this MV, and Mika made them all look like the angels that they are, but…it just felt… I dunno… safe? Like maybe this MV was released in response to all the criticism of the sexual allure that perhaps AKB is seen as having to the untrained eye who doesn’t understand what AKB actually is all about? I mean, if we want sexy, go to KPOP, right? AKB is about kawai culture, and always has been, imo.
    Still love the MV though. I could watch it on an endless loop, though the song isn’t my favorite by far. Actually though, the HKT song RULES! I love the dance songs that AKB groups put out more than any of the others, and the HKT song is like Sasshi’s response to watching too many NMB dance songs like Kamonegix, or at least that is my take on it. The girls look so grown up in the MV too! Definitely and easily my favorite out of all the songs on here!

    Great, great upload! Thank you so much MB!

    • Hiya Derek~kun!~! Wow you’ve gone to Japan!!!! With your girlfriend I’m guessing? In any case I’d spent about 8 hours over the past two day creating this Sasshi~♥ post but I plan to be on the blog tomorrow so that I can catch up and reply properly here to everything you’ve shared and said…. thank you for being patient with me!

      LUV ya!,

    • Love that she’s the center here, well with the reunion and all still taking place…. her longer hairstyle gives her a much stronger and ironically much more mature presence and aura and especially when you see Sakuratan walking front and center between the two rows of her AKSubordinates beside her… just kidding about that last part =P! For a lot of girls they say cut your hair shorter for more mature and professional look, however with Sakura it seems that her longer locks has given her this vibe of an idol goddess!~! Forget the handshake event… I wanna give her a squeezing hug~♥ instead as security has me removed from the premises xD.Agreed with the K~pop thought!! OMG it’s like an all the time who can be sexiest contest going on over there with both their male and girl groups! =D My fave is IU~♥… Philip here introduced me to her awhile back before he went on a blogging hiatus for awhile..miss him but anyway IU is amazing both vocally and of course with her immaculate dancing, acting and YES she’s drop dead gorgeous too. Her music is quite diverse as well and I particularly love her jazz releases as there’s even the inspiration of Big Bands in there which I absolutely LOVE~♥!!!!! But getting back to the title track here, rather than a safe visual to stop all of the “it’s too sexy” haters out there and OMG what’s wrong with being sexy anyway?? But that’s an entire different can of worms for discussion later, here I think the choice of glamorous kimono many with an even imperial thought to them albeit the designs sing a mixture of modern as well…. was done specifically to symbolically represent the top tier AKGuard if you will of the past with the whole reunion happening here. Could be me just reading into it way too much (most likely) but that was my takeaway with their choice and styles of kimono as well as the amazing set they used and how the girls were postured in many of the key walking glory scenes which are just visually awesome! As you saw here my tie for fave song here went to NGT48’s debut and I sooooo love that AkiP specifically gave them a true blooded and pure J~Pop song inspired by their golden age! Plus extra points just because of Kitarie~♥!! Did I mention how she and Sasshi are best buds! I was so sad to see them separated back then =(. LOVE the HKT48 song and MV here too!~! It’s simply the choreographer’s dance dream~* in the spotlight and those flashes of Sasshi and Sakuratan are just Woah~! Sexy~cool =).
