In Which Momusu Thugs about in Long Skirts

This is one of those crosses I just kinda have to bear: whenever I encounter English in a Japanese song, it’s likely to make absolutely no grammatical sense and drive me bonkers. I have no idea what ‘A Gonna’ means. It’s so very Tsunku and in English it doesn’t make any sense.

But hey, that’s never stopped us before, has it?

It’s meant to be a kansai dialect thing, but I still don’t know what it’s supposed to mean.

*sigh* It’s very distracting in an otherwise interesting song.

We’re back everybody (and once again, I’m absurdly behind in my reviews)! After a brief and glorious respite from the heavy formation choreography and the blatant pushing of an Ace member – it’s all made a comeback in Brand New Morning, Momusu’s declaration of war on 2017.

Ok, well it’s actually not a war declaration.

So let’s do the last-minute-a-couple-days-till-the-year-ends reviews! This triple-a side is another one of those record-making, number-one-at-least-for-a-day singles. I am not very surprised. Minus Sou ja Nai, which for me is the weakest, it’s an incredibly strong single.

Sexy Cat Story was the first pv to be released and with such a ridiculous name I wasn’t sure what to expect. I mean, I expected kitty-ears of course, but not much else. I was pleasantly surprised. I mean, the pv actually has some direction this time! I’ve been waiting to see that since 2015’s Seishun Kozou ga Naiteiru.

I just thank my lucky stars that Winky isn’t here anymore.
*shudder*
