The preview PVs for Shirogumi’s Kesshou and Akagumi’s Hoshokusha tachi yo have been posted on NMB48’s official Youtube account. For lack of a better word, I’m intrigued by both of the preview PVs.

The PV for Kesshou looks crazy and weird to me. It has a strange fantasy Alice in Wonderland vibe with the huge rabbit and the video has a dream-like color brightness about it. And the fairy-like blue costumes the girls are wearing look a bit ridiculous and silly to me. The song is a bit plain, but it’s soft and gentle and overall, nice to listen to. Nothing special, but nothing horrible.
I prefer the PV for Hoshokusha tachi yo. The song and the PV seem to have a more mature vibe and the girls look great in the red dresses. And the Hoshokusha tachi yo PV seems to be more story-oriented than the Kesshou PV. Also, this PV marks the “return” to the PV for Kondo Rina (Riichan) and Watanabe Miyuki (Miruki), who were removed from senbatsu for the Oh My God! PV. Can’t say I didn’t miss them.
NMB48’s 2nd single, Oh My God!, releases on October 19. Shirogumi’s Kesshou appears on Type-A of the single, while Akagumi’s Hoshokusha tachi yo appears on Type-B.
