Beautiful and breathtaking MV for their first ballad. The Kobushi Magnolia flowers come together to bloom into spring after a cold, rough winter.

Dat PV though. Not enough Reina though :P
I think H!P is in pretty good hands with Hoshibe taking the lead on songwriting.

I like the video so much that I just go say it again. :heart:

And not just because it's different, but because I really like it. I love the concept, the setting of the video, the location, the styling of the girls.

I love Tokyo and I love these girls, making the video double :heart: :heart:

When you watch a PV and immediately watch it again... :thumbs-up:

This is pretty much the H!P video that I've been wishing for for the past 10 years. I love how it visually captures the feeling of Japan so exquisitely...all those trains, footbridges, street mirrors, wind turbines, getting their own solo shots as if they're featured members of the group. It's a much more expansive and inclusive vision than the typically hermetically sealed H!P PV.

And I love that the ballad gives them a chance to demonstrate their lovely "Douyou Pops"-level vocal skills. Check how Ayaka sings that rich, low "arukou" at the end of the first stanza, and then bookends her accomplishment with that sweet "kokoro ni" high note. She's seriously staking her claim to fill Airi's soon to be vacant top-singer spot.

I can't wait to get this song.

The video is amazing. :love:

The beach scenes remind me of this photo. It took me FOREVER to find it again, since it's been like a million years since I saw it. XD

I'm sure this is already long up somewhere else but instead of poking around I just did my own conversion. Excuse the inevitable typos, word boundary issues etc.

真っ青な冬の空に伸びる 真っ白な力強い花よ
他の木々はまだ寝てるのに
誰も皆立ち止まっていても誰も皆悩み込んでいても
私たちは歩こう
たまにはサボりたいそんな朝もあるさ
キリギリまで寝たい朝もあるさ
でもみんなのことを思い出さない朝はないから
真っ直ぐ
清くこの世に咲いてゆけ派手な花ではないけれど
友を信じ人に元気灯す人になろう
真っ直ぐ
熱く現在を歌ってゆけ派手な色ではないけれど
精一杯精一杯届く日まで
真っ白な花が咲き土に目を向ければ
春が顔をのぞかせた
ちっぽけな遠慮と優しさで安直に空気を読むよりも
流れ変える人になりたい
誰も皆笑うことを忘れ誰も皆ふさぎ込んでいても
私たちは笑おう
約束されてる未来なんてないさ
夢が叶う保証なんてないさ
でもなんだかやれるような自信だけはあるから
真っ直ぐ
土に根を張り咲いてゆけ飾りなんかはないけれど
さり気なくって欠かせなくってそんな人になろう
真っ直ぐ
届く歌を歌ってゆけ飾る言葉もないけれど
もう一回もう一回気持ち込めて
冬のように凍えてる人々の心に
春を告げる花になれ
たまには辛くて長い冬もあるさ
前も見えぬ吹雪だってあるさ
でも必ず耐え凌げばあったかい春は来るから
真っ直ぐ
清くこの世に咲いてゆけ派手な花ではないけれど
友を信じ人に元気灯す人になろう
真っ直ぐ
熱く現在を歌ってゆけ派手な色ではないけれど
精一杯精一杯届く日まで
真っ白な花が咲き土に目を向ければ
春が顔をのぞかせた
冬のように凍えてる人々の心に
春を告げる花になろう
Wow Wow Yeah

What an amazing song :O

Plot Twist:
Hoshibe Shou knows English super well and reads forums to get their input and that's why they're doing so well. xD

Super Plot Twist:
Zunu is really Shou

I'm sad I'll never be able to sing along to this song like at all (due to both lack of vocal ability, and impossibility of quickly spoken Japanese), but it's really very pretty & lyrically beautiful & inspiring. Plus that PV. :heart: :heart:
Kobushi. :love:
