I hadn’t even realized until today that Ono Erena’s 4th single was released this week. I hadn’t been too fond of either of Erena’s previous 2 singles Erenyan or Say!! Ippai, but I decided to look up the PV for the title track Kimi ga Ano Hi Waratte Ita Imi wo. It seems like few people are really talking about Erena’s newest single PV. Which is a shame, because now it’s my favorite Ono Erena single and PV since her debut solo single Erepyon.
In the Kimi ga Ano Hi Waratte Ita Imi wo PV, we get to see a geeky side of Erena and she’s just adorable with her nerdy glasses and her blue jumpsuit while playing video games. And by the end of the PV, she morphs into the cool, rocker girl Erena that we all know now and love. The song has a nice, gentle rocker feel that seems to suit Erena perfectly and even without much of a story, the PV is so simple and cute that it works very well. I said it when Erepyon was released, but it’s just amazing how beautiful and mature of a woman Erena has come since graduating from AKB. And just like the Erepyon PV, I think the Kimi ga Ano Hi Waratte Ita Imi wo PV is a wonderful representation of that evolution and metamorphosis.
Here’s hoping we get more great Erena singles like this one. Ono Erena’s 4th single Kimi ga Ano Hi Waratte Ita Imi wo was released on March 6th, 2013.
The covers for Ono Erena’s 2nd single Erenyan have been released. I always preach about how covers should be simple and these covers are just that. Of course, it’s no surprise that Erena looks simply adorable and I like how Erena has different costumes for 4 CD+DVD editions. The Type-C and Type-D covers would be my personal favorite covers of the bunch.
Given how much I enjoyed Erepyon, I have high expectations for Erenyan. Hoping for another fun single and PV.
Ono Erena’s 2nd single Erenyan releases on October 3rd.
And Ono Erena is back! The PV for Ono Erena’s debut single Erepyon has leaked out online and it’s an absolute joy to see her back. The song and PV are awesome.
From my interpretation, the PV features idol Erepyon and boxer Ono Erena in a representation of Erena before and after AKB. During the boxer Erena gets knocked down a bit, which sort of symbolizes Erena after her graduation from AKB a couple of years ago. But she gets backs up and ultimately knocks out idol Erepyon. We still see the same cute and cool Erepyon we know and love and yet she’s grown up now and is different from the AKB idol Erepyon.
I’m hoping that Erena’s single does well and she’s back in the entertainment industry to say. Erepyon sounds great and I’m optimistic about the rest of the single now. One Erena’s debut single Erepyon releases on June 13th.
