Trying to give songs a chance.....

So to all fairness, i thought that i should give SKE's song a better chance and decided to watch the video again........

Can only find 46 sec previews of their song.

How stupid can their management be?

Come on! The put the FULL PV on youtube LONG before Morning Musume put up even a hint of their single up, and now they decide to take it down and put up only 46 second previews of the song? What? am i missing something here?

when you type in the title of their song 1!2!3!4! ヨロシク!this way, you get about 44 results with only the preview of the song. when typed 1, 2, 3, 4, Yoroshiku, nothing (it says 10 results but it's really nothing). When you just type SKE48 4th, you get 25 results.

Granted their preview has 136,000 views but Morning Musume have their FULL pv up and running a view count of nearly 20,000 views in 2 days and thats just off THEIR offical account. There's about 132 results when you search for モーニング娘。 女と男のララバイゲーム, 87 results for Morning musume 44th and about 150 results for Onna to Otoko no Lullaby Game, all Full PV's and 1 minute previews. Majority of those videos are getting about 10,000 hits each, the first page alone has about 270,000 hits.

I have noticed that OOO48's thend to have most of the fans take down their videos or disable the audio to a video. While UFA seem to just let the videos go. To me, this is good PR for international fans as it gives us easy access to H!P and with the added bonus that UFA has their own channel as well.

(and yes i know SKE and AKB have their own channels as well but it's the same thing with them as well)

LOOK! i am tryiong to like SKE's single but no matter how many times i listen to that 46 second preview, i still turn off after 15 seconds.


I tried.

Is all i can say.


  1. You can find it on a lot of other sites; just not YouTube. If you search 1 2 3 4 Yoroshiku on Google multiple video options (if you vid search) pop up.

    On the one hand I agree with you; YouTube is a great way to get a lot of buzz surrounding your release. However, on the other hand, it IS SKE48's release and fans putting it up is illegal, and they should do with it what they want. SKE did something kind of clever, actually; they released the PV on their channel, it got about a half-million views and then they put up the preview. Now I'm addicted to the song/PV and even though I've never had more than a passing interest in SKE48 I want to buy their single.

    I'm just curious; what about the song/PV turns you off?

  2. I did look on other sites and found it but the same thing happened, i just shut off.

    I'm not quite sure what exactly turns me off with this song/PV but it sounds like something i've heard before somewhere but i just can't remember where. That and i just seemed to turn off after a few seconds. But the PV's OK, just a little too busy for me.
