The dance shot for 1,2,3 is out already!! Check it out if you haven’t already.
-The first thing I noted is how freaking sexy Mizuki looks in this. The pigtails and the costume and her dancing… drools. She’s the unexpected standout of this video.
-Also, Eripon is mostly off to the side (towards the front though), but she has some great moments in this too.
-You can start to see the new MM hierarchy taking shape. 1st tier is, of course, Riho and Reina. 2nd is Ayumi and Sayumi (she’s not in the front, but she gets more lines than anyone but the Riho/Reina combi). 3rd is Mizuki. 4th is Eripon. Then Haruna, Haruka, Masaki, and Kanon at the bottom. Masaki might be a tiny bit ahead of the other three though. EDIT (Actually, she definitely has a better position than those other three. She’s doubled on Reina’s lines in the chorus. Sayu singing with Riho, BTW) On one hand, it makes sense to mostly keep their weakest dancers (Kanon and Haruna) in the back for this. On the other hand, what is Haruka doing back there? She can dance just fine. I’m guessing it’s mostly because she’s so young that she has plenty of time to shine later? Either that or Tsunku doesn’t like her much for some reason.
-Set isn’t very exciting… hoping against hope they do something cool for the rest of the PV
-I really like the part at the bridge with the pink duo doing the 1,2,3 spoken part, Reina talking, and then Riho comes in with the woooh’s and the beat picks up again!
-One odd thing I noticed, Masaki and Kanon both have green boots. Everyone else has their own color, and Masaki has teal for her bows, stockings, and gloves, but I guess they couldn’t find teal boots?
