The Keyakizaka46 Express Continues Rolling Through 2016 With 3 More MVs from 3rd Single!
Reaching more than 2 million views within a week since the unveiling of the MV for their third single MV, “Futari Saison” (release date: November 30), the prodigious upstarts of the 48/46 world, Keyakizaka46, continue their onslaught with yet another three MVs from that single revealed to the world via SHOWROOM on November 23, 2016. Featuring members of Hiragana Keyaki, the new front line members for Kanji Keyakizaka, and their new unit, Five Cards, the group showed their fans their coolness can’t be stopped!
“Otona wa Shinjite-kurenai”
Fans who enjoyed the MV for their first single “Silent Majority” will be glad to know that elements of “SaiMajo” is back in “Otona Shinji”. For the first time since their debut in April, the group is adding a rock tune to their arsenal of songs. In addition to that, “Otona Shinji” brought in a new dance element within the group: head banging. Coupled with their highly synchronized and choreographed dance sequences, “Otona wa Shinjite-kurenai” increases the cool aspect of Keyakizaka46 exponentially. According to some members, the powerful dance sequence for this song was much harder than “Kataru Nara Mirai Wo”. That could be due to all the headbanging, which left some members with muscle pain after the shoot was finished.
“Dare Yori mo Takaku Tobe”
The faces of Hiragana Keyaki members might be unfamiliar to some, but with “Dare Yori mo Takaku Tobe”, the girls will definitely leave an impression with their fans. Ever since their first song which spelled out their insecurities upon debut, “Dare Yori mo” expresses their next ambition of flying higher than anyone above them. With a double center formation featuring Neru Nagahama and Memi Kakizaki, Hiragana Keyaki members shows us the strength of each member, with them putting on various attires such as basketball and soccer jerseys or playing musical instruments in the MV. Get ready to dance along with them should you attend their live.
“Bokutachi no Sensou”
Made up of 5 unique members, FIVE CARDS (Risa Watanabe, Rika Watanabe, Nanako Nagasawa, Rina Uemura, and Mizuho Habu) shows us the poker faces of the coolest, prettiest and cutest members in Keyakizaka46. The past struggles of the members can be understood from the lyrics and hinted at slightly with some of the scenes. With a colorful and beautifully shot MV, the tune behind “Bokutachi no Sensou” brings out a fast pop melody, similar to those of anisongs. Fans of Rina Uemura will definitely be shouting “Justice is served!” as there is more screen time for her as compared to “Futari Saison” MV, where it was not easy to spot her.
