The full PV for Passpo's 2nd single, ViVi Natsu, was released yesterday.
When I watched the PV preview I was pretty shocked that Passpo felt the need to release a bikini PV. So, I was a litte apprehensive about the full version. But I am actually really happy with the PV. While there are 2 different setting where they are wearing bikinis, the bikinis aren't in the main focus like I thought they might be. Instead they are pretty much just a footnote in the PV. The rest of the PV just shows doing random cute things together. Like eating and sitting in a bed together. The PV seems to mostly focus on the dance scenes. Which isn't really a problem because the dance is cute and I absolutely adore their main outfits for this PV. And can I also point out that this is the first time that Passpo is wearing normal clothes in a PV. Well, if you don't count the pajamas from GPP. The pajamas seem more like a costume anyway. But my absolute favorite part of the PV is when they eat the summery foods. They are just adorable scenes, and they just scream summer to me.
The only real fault about this PV is I wish they used the summer theme better. They could have went all out and done every single summer cliche known to man. That would have be cheesy, but it would have made for an incredible idol PV. Or they could have taken the summer theme and made it unique like Not Yet's Naminori Kakigori. You can see that little added elements in the PV like the sunflower, tropical drinks, picnic tables, and the bikinis are supposed to give a clear message that this is a summer themed PV. They obviously do have some elements to let you know it's summer, but I just wanted more. A clearer picture painted. I guess I'm just being picky.
Also, I never noticed until I watched the PV how unfair the line distribution is. Mostly because I'm not all that familiar with Passpo's individual voices yet. However, my 3 favorite girls Kaho, Shiori, and Mio sing most of the song. So, I honestly can't complain too much about that.
Everyone looks pretty awkward in the beginning. I suppose they where just told to ad-lib. Shiori looking up unnecessarily is just a lol moment.
Dreaming Mio. She's so adorable. *O*
Cute. Obvious Mio bias is obvious. Sako looks cute in the background too though.
Awkward way to start the dance.
Natsumi is pretty.
Nice hair Yukimi, you shouldn't get used to it. XD Look at Sako looking all gorgeous next to her.
This is too.
Lolz at Shiori. XD
Shiori is so cute.
Ai looks pretty here.
Anna, Ai, and Makoto looks gorgeous here. Am I the only onw who thought it would have been cute for their bikinis to be their group colors. It kinda looks like they almost are. But Makoto's and Natsumi's aren't right. XD
I love Mio's bikini.
Cute! And Naomi looks great.
Anna looks super pretty.
Makoto is just so cute.
Look at them try to seductively eat. Lol.
Reminds me of the Heavy Rotation PV.
Cute. But why is Sako just staring off into space? She kinda looks angry. XD
Shiori's face is priceless.
Probably the 2 cutest members. Shiori being a close 3rd.
