With a title like that, it’s easy to need to shorten the name. I usually have shortened the title of the song to “Mugen no Ai” which translates to “Eternal Love” and it seems to be the shortened title that lots of MomoClo fans accept, at least on YouTube when I’ve searched for the name before.
However, this might only be referred to as “that really really really amazing PV of amazing” or something around those lines.
Oh. My. God.
Outfits: The thing I love about these outfits is that they look really well made; when you think of the words “space pirates” it’s easy to think of something REALLY cheesy or childish. Something like, say, the Morning Musume no Hyokkori Hyoutanjima PV. Now mind that was meant to look like that, but that’s just an easy comparison that can be made when you think of JPop meeting pirates. Or the outfits could look really cheap like this, which is just as bad in this case.
OK, maybe I just want a picture of Tobias Funke on my blog. Because of reasons.
However, the outfits here are really well crafted in that they look cool but you don’t feel second-hand embarrassment for MomoClo for wearing them. Another thing I appreciate is that the outfits are clearly crafted to suit each girl individually, as opposed to just being one cookie cutter outfit that was made five times. For example, Sasaki Ayaka’s outfit has a skirt trimmed with lace while others wear shorts. It’s details like this that make you think that MomoClo’s staff works really hard.
Dance: I’ve seen live performances of this song before, and while this dance is definitely not one of Momoiro Clover’s strongest in terms of choreography, IMO, the things they showed in the PV are really good. Moreover, even if it’s not their most difficult dance, all the girls completely ace the dance. It shows that even though I’d say dance is one of Momoiro Clover’s strongest points, that it’s definitely not the only thing that sets them apart as an idol group.
Song: Again, I’ve heard the song before this. But really, this might just be up there now as my favorite Momoiro Clover song. Which is actually saying a LOT, considering that I love this group more than most idol groups. This song is legitimately epic and catchy.
PV in general: Overall, the effects are great, it looks beautiful (it’s the first PV I really feel like I need to see on a big screen in HD), and it’s just incredibly well made. The thing I love most about this PV and really about Momoiro Clover in general is that they really go all out to do their best. They don’t just phone it in, make a so-so PV and call it a day because they have a fairly sizable fanbase at this point. Everything I see from Momoiro Clover is really high quality, which is why I’m proud to be their fan and support them. And I hope that you guys do, too!
