I liked the sound of this new unit when I first heard about it
I'm glad Karin is in something! she totally rocked the smileage auditions
and I see a lot of talent in the group, for one I know Karin, Aina and Sayuki can sing really well
I like the trumpet instrumental! and I like their energy in the dance
this song was a lot more catchy for me than the MM double A sides
it has a 'fresh' jpop feel (fresh juice haha..ok lame I know)
I hope Tsunku keeps this unit as it is, and no swopsies, as he likes to threaten.
I think they have a lot of potential. but if they want to compete with other young idol groups, they definitely need better PV sets, I mean they're wearing white, and they have a white/grey backdrop? at least mix it up a bit
but then again official H!P groups have cheap plain PVs, can't expect too much
also I remember when Tsunku first announced their name Juice=Juice...
no duh! so silly... what's next happy=happy? girl=girl? potato=potato?
the reason behind the name isn't bad,
The unit’s name stands for “just-harvested”, “freshly-picked”, “fresh”, “natural”, “100%”, and “just-squeezed”. Tsunku♂ named it with his hope that, “I want this unit to stay fresh, and be comprised with full of each of their unique individualities.”
reading some comments, apparently Osaka people like to repeat words twice, hence the name
but I don't think there's any need to make the repeat official, and the equal sign will be dropped anyway, in the end they'll just be saying 'JuiceJuice desuu.'
juice=juice=unnecessary decoration imo
he wants them to be natural, so why not 100%Juice? au Naturelle? or why not just JUICE, which I think is more effective
suddenly felt like I needed a big berryz dose, it all started when I happened across this video
felt very nolstalgic, then I went and watched some of their mv's in full, and made me love their songs again. in particular, I really love the tomodachi wa tomodachi nanda, pv! I think it's one of the best videos, it has a story! and how it went back a forth a bit in time. and also the beautiful beach scene. if you forgot about it, here you goo
and then I went on projecthello.com, to look at all their songs
and I saw that their latest album is out! but I shouldn't be surprised really, since I kiinda stopped following Hello!Pro sadly. but I thought hey ho might as well check out their songs, (I always pray for a miya solo each time). aand then I saw there are some videos! sadly I can only find Miyabi and Risako's ver...but I'm sure the rest are there somewhere. anyway it's for the song...
Succha ka Meccha ka~
Risako Close up
Miyabi Close up
I have to say Risako looks stunning!
these must have been shot a long time ago, with Miya's dark hair.
the song is pretty cute
so I thought might as well check out all the songs
duet with Momoko and Yurina
quite like the instrumental, and I like overall sound
and they're good singers
Nandakanda de Ii Kanji!
duet with Chinami and Masaa
I just knew this would be a fast and upbeat song, I always think energetic with Chinami xD
I'm happy they have a duet together, they need the chance to sing more, masaa especially
Koi Itoshiki Kisetsu
I think one of my favourites so far. I like the tune of this song
reminds me of sailor moon a bit...I dunno why
I thought to watch this mv again, since it's been awhile and I haven't watched it much
I like the song itself, esp the chorus
but for the video, even though the rooftop scene looks really pretty. I felt like they coulda done so much more with the pv.
Massugu na Watashi
soo this is the ballad of the album
there's one line where chinami sounds like she's shouting it, lol sounds a bit out of place
I'm wondering, after Risako sings the last line, Massugu ni, whose voice is it doing the adlib? cause it'd make sense if its Risako, but it sounds like Miya...
Cha Cha Sing
this is just an awesome song, nuff said
Anata Nashi de wa Ikite Yukenai
ahh! lovee this, I think it'd be great if they sang more of their old songs
