(gratuitous & unrelated Yuumin image for you pleasure =P!)
Guess who’s back for another dip into Summertime pop?!
It’s Shida Summer (aka: Shida Yuumi of “Yumermiru Adolescence”) & Arai Summer (aka: Arai Hitomi of “Tokyo Girls Styel”) as they’ve released a second duo unit single on August 10th titled “Annani suki datta summer.” A second most well produced and adora-lized (today’s made up word =)!) single overall and YES we do get the title track’s music video along with a video gem!… aka: the making of movie here~!~! ^^ I don’t often offer up highlights and must see~s from a single’s making of movie, however…. here Shida Yuumi wins the “Ms. Adorable Idol!” award by a landslide with her monomane (“impersonation”) of some well known and popular anime characters including for me personally and most notable, that being Yuumin’s monomane of “Crayon Shinchan!!!” And coincidentally so so fitting as a visitor here just requested me to upload more “Crayon Shinchan” anime clips adding them to my already existing nod to this most beloved of anime =). Those new uploads will be happening a bit later as I have quite a few current blog projects already on my to do list. And as a second must see/hear highlight, do not miss out on Shida Yuumi also imitating sheep…. YUP! sheep! Mmm it’ll only “make much more sense” if you watch it in context with the “making of movie” which is posted here just a bit further below….

But first the coupling with track is most notable here as it’s a cover of K-Pop Kara’s “Go Go Summer! which receives an all new inspiration stemming from this duo’s uber~cheery voices!!
~Shida Summer x Arai Summer “Go Go Summer!” (mp3)~
And here’s the original sung by Kara for comparison’s sake, and for the most part Kara’s brand of electro~pop remains pretty similar in our summer duo’s version with just a bit of reimagining and remixing…. oh and of course it’s now a duet versus an ensemble performance.
~Shida Summer x Arai Summer “Annani sukidatta summer” (mv)~
Once again a gorgeously shot and edited idol adora~feast for your idol lovin’ senses here! And the producers didn’t shy away from including a bit of nature’s summertime beauty as well as a beach and shoreline share screen time here, however it all fairs in comparison to alluring voices, looks and sounds of this single as this time around Shida Summer and Arai Summer present us with a pretty and lushly composted ballad.
~Shida Summer x Arai Summer “Annani sukidatta summer” (making of movie)~
However not to be outdone by any stretches of the imagination, here’s the accompanying “making of movie” (approximately 17 minutes) for “Annani sukidatta summer” where if you weren’t already aware…. this summertime duo are simply like two peas-in-a-pod! I mean even the cosmos must say that they’re totally made for one another, you know, in an idol duo unit kind of way that is =). And be sure to be on the lookout for Shida Yuumin’s♥ aforementioned “Crayon Shinchan” monomane which is really GOOD! Plus Yuumin’s♥ aforementioned sheep um “monomane” LOL which is equally GREAT!! And too funny really! Huh, Shida Yuumin♥, monomane and sheep, now there’s a combination of text I never had imagined could come to fruition and make sense here (。ーωー。)笑！Now if you’ll excuse me, it’s time for me to get a “bit” cap~happy now…. (*´∀｀*) ♪♪！
