french kiss: zutto mae kara PV

AKB48’s newest subunit ‘french kiss’, with members kashiwagi yuki, takajyo aki, and kuramochi asuka, are set to have their first single release on september 8th called ‘zutto mae kara’.

it’s clear why they would choose a name like ‘french kiss’ because from an outsider’s point of view it seems like two great words to put together, but i doubt they know what a french kiss actually means…or they figured most people in japan wouldn’t know.

the news of this group had been around for a while but i honestly haven’t been paying attention until i came across the PV.

i’m glad i did because this is a great song, and the PV adds the sappy drama we loved seeing in the old days.

kashiwagi has one of my favorite singing voices, so i’m glad she has a subunit to showcase it; and it was great to hear takajyo and kuramochi have plenty of solo lines.  their voices may not be as diverse as No3b’s but they compliment each other pretty well.

but their performing outfits, however…

i’m not a fan of the outdated, short poof skirts.  i wouldn’t mind if that fashion trend disappeared from idol-dom forever.  especially H!P (i’m looking at you s/mileage).

    My bet is they think “French Kiss” just as a romantic kiss without the tongue part hahaha.

    And as I talk about group/band names; this is easy name to figure out, but a name as “Bump of Chicken” is not a easy one to figure out 😐
