Yup! those were the odds of receiving a Sakuratan “pocket school calendar” as these are of the randomly inserted type! Sure a Sasshi or Haruppi calendar card would have been met with smiles =)…. as well as for a rather newbie like myself when it comes to all things HKT48, they’re indeed my most favorite girls in the group thus far! How lucky~*!!!!!! Sakuratan~♡ you’re too adorable for words!~!~!!
First pressings also include an external photo card (by Neowing), happily it is Haruppi as they’re always duplicates, all girls geared up in their vividly colorful “Okubun no 1 no kimi e” outfits which btw are sweetly~adorable!~! Now why 48 shades you may ask?? Well we’ll be getting to that soon enough ^^.
So here I ended up getting single types A & B which include the every essential additional DVDs.
Huh, when the last time a music
video required an intro to get you… you
know in the mood*? Consider this an mb
version of video~foreplay~♥!! =)
“Got Girl x Girl?”
Starring Mayuyu x Paruru
(sigh* was it good for you too?) ^^*
Single type A
~HKT48 Sakura x Haruka “Taboo no iro” (mv)~
I’d typically begin with a single’s title track HOWEVER, not today as there’s a real trumping circumstance surrounding single type A’s coupling w/ music video track! “Taboo no iro” is every bit musically enchanting as it is visually as the musical undertones definitely have a whirlwind of fairy~tale/ fantasy aura about it and appropriately so. I love the individual vocals of Haruppi and Sakuratan as they are heard a bit melancholy throughout the emotions of the verse sections until they inevitably bloom into the heart thumping adrenaline of those anticipatory choruses~♥. Visually alluring with suggestive themes abound in nearly every frame, as “Taboo no iro” reassures us that no you weren’t the only girl to experiment with another girl during those college dorm days… just kidding! =P Sweet innocence ponders the “forbidden” love and with the likes of HKT48’s two IT girls…. an absolutely gorgeously and thoughtfully shot mv not to be missed! ^^*
~HKT48 “74 Okubun no 1 no kimi e” (mv)~
Immediately just the premise of “74 Okubun no 1 no kimi e” speaks of a thousand emotions all at once as HKT48’s LOVE festival welcomes the outpouring of true love confessions all sweetly vocalized to a fittingly euphoria of melodies if there ever was one song to house them all! Your one true love in the universe, of this world ….one in 7.4 billion that is as this number represents the rounded about figure of just how many of us there are right now on planet earth. =O Talk about the odds of finding Mr.Right or Mrs. Right out of sooooooooooo many!! =O. Thus these sweeter than maple syrup lyrics are a true testament of AkiP’s amazing ability to place the simple language of love all into poetry as he so perfectly~* does here. They used to say “you’re one in a million” ……however now HKT48 has upped that ante to “You’re one in 7.4 billion” special to me ^^*. Psssst: keep an eye out constantly for Sakuratan being cuter than anyone you know on earth!
~HKT48 Mystery Bus Tour (Alpaca Time!) =)~
And in addition to type A’s two music videos there’s also a special HKT48 Mystery Bus Tour which is broken down into parts, here with type A we get part one and while the sight seeing, shopping and eating was all very much a delight I thought I’d share~* my most favorite part of the video clip of all! =) Amidst all of the wild animal exploration the HKTGirls venture upon the oh~so~adorable alpaca!~! ..as part of their animal and U selfie photo taking challenge! Considered a miniature version of the Llama, here we learn that the alpaca more than makes up for its smaller stature by means of the unexpected humorous moment~* to be mutually enjoyed by “all!” Well that depends perhaps on whom its KUSHAMI~* splatters upon…(^q^)! Huh? Who knew the alpaca was so capable of giving such a gooey gift? (。ーωー。)笑！
Single type B
~HKT48 Mystery Bus Tour (Miyawaki x Murashige
LOVE LOVE MOUSOU DATE!)
Single type B continues the HKT48 Mystery Bus Tour with a second grouping of the girls and this time YES! we have a Sakuratan sighting!!!! Now the “LOVE LOVE MOUSOU DATE” premises a “fantasy” (mousou) date as the girls are each paired up and while indeed there are plenty of candid to awkward moments~* to speak of as each girl takes a turn at “switching” sides on their respective date so to speak LOL =P ….with the camera changing hands accordingly you know to give the viewer that sensation of “actually” experiencing said “girl x girl” date which isn’t actually meant to be a girl x girl date, you follow? (￣▽￣) 。Oh what the heck! Just go with it as being an actual girl x girl date as this entire post was built on those grounds of wild imagination…(^q^)! So the mini clip above is the first part of the “date”, it being representative of Sakuratan♥ being the camera eye’s focus as I wouldn’t have it any other way! Do note that Murashige Anna who’s also a cutie~♥! does get her camera time via the hand of Sakuratan and it all ends in a sweet “kiss” …well sort of…. you know after a bit of an awkwardly selfish moment, Anna kisses the camera and not actually Sakuratan but in any case I’ve only included the first part of their date scenario here where Sakuratan is dominating your screen, keeping with the Sakuratan theme of this post of course ^^*! And as the clip above plays I must comment that I personally do not favor any type of carnival ride you know due to my fear of heights or losing the dinner my date just dined me with…. except perhaps the occasional Ferris Wheel which may be OK. =) Here Sakuratan sure freaks out a bit albeit she’s OK with the occasional scary ride Awww a Sakuratan date♥ would be so fun wouldn’t it? I mean for you guys out there!! Well a girl can dream~* too can’t she (。ーωー。)笑！
~HKT48 Platinum Girls “HKT-jou, ima, ugoku”~
Type B coupling w/ music video “HKT-jou, ima, ugoku” is presented by HKT48’s Platinum Girls: Akiyoshi Yuka, Inoue Yuriya, Okamoto Naoko, Komada Hiroka, Yamamoto Mao, Wakatabe Haruka, Ueki Nao, Shimono Yuki, Tanaka Yuka, Tomiyoshi Asuka, Murashige Anna, Motomura Aoi, Aramaki Misaki, Kurihara Sae, Murakawa Vivian and Yamashita Emiri. Let’s see that would be sixteen HKTGirls whom I’m unfamiliar with =P Someone please help me xD!!
Seriously though, the mv is uber~cute! and so is this song as it has an upbeat dance allure all its own and there’s also a moral to the story as well as Murakawa Vivian teaches us that if you can’t develop your mind’s eye of idol perfection~* with your undertakes no matter the training which goes on and on, why not go all “Vivian” on everyone in your troop as all you’ll be needing is a simple scissors in hand! (。ーωー。)笑！Huh, who knew that scout training could be so glamorous and tough Σ(￣◇￣*)！
