Momoiro Clover (Z), a.k.a. MomoClo

MomoClo needs their own thread on PCity for pics, vids and discussion. Most of the talk is strewn around in Last Post Wins, where it gets lost to sands of time.

My first contribution: Hazukashi A-rin!

Hell yeah, the legend of Momoclo continues on November 23rd with "Rondou Sanka" which has a drunken salaryman theme: http://www.momoclo.net/

WTF is with the bolo ties though. :lol:

Battle & Romance is being released on LP:

Looks like a cool little collector item, especially since each LP is autographed by one of the girls...

English subs for "Rodo Sanka," just turn on the CC function!



Also, an interesting tidbit from the description of this video is that the composer for this one is Ian Parton of The Go! Team, an English indie/electronic/I have no idea what they actually do band that haven't been shy in what I've heard of them in flair and arrangements. It makes a lot more sense why Momoclo are consistently working on such a high level with the songwriting talent they bring in.

Nice find Sat, thanks! Yes, I think maybe they've found the secret to consistent quality: don't stick with one Japanese producer but branch out and get lots of outside talent to write for them. It's giving them great results so far, and they've been able to retain a unique MomoClo sound even with all the different writers.

EDIT: okay, got a chance to check out the lyrics... I love the song even more now... GREAT LYRICS! I'm actually moved by them... this really is a working man's (and woman's) ANTHEM!

ROCK ON MOMOCLO!!!!

Ah, thought I responded, I guess I didn't.

Either way...

"Yeah, we already did this in 'Coconatsu,' so before you point it out, suck on this for a while."

So far above everyone else's game right now. :o

Reni missed the opening of their tour today due to poor health. Man, these idols are dropping like flies. I hope it's not related to her eating disorder issues...

I'm hoping some of these issues (as yet another heavily pushed AKB member is sick) are to do with seasons changing and catching immune systems off guard. Especially in Reni's case. Get better, Reni! "Santa-san" isn't even the same song without you!

EDIT:

So this was on Akari's current show...



I don't really get what's happening, but this parody group seems awfully familiar.

The best part is Akari's, complete with the generic background music. :rofl:
