The other b-side to SKE48′s Kataomoi Finally is Hanikami Lollipop. Unlike the previous 2 videos in this single package there really isn’t much of anything to follow or really think about. But I guess after hammering people in the head with the first couple of videos it’s only natural that one such as this would show up. Plus, the song is so damn cute that anything other than that would do it a disservice.
But if you’re looking for some sort of idea of what might be going on well I’ll break it down for you. A little black & white boy comes up, wakes up a dozing girl in a cafe and tells her in heavily accented English about saving everyone from the doldrums of their mundane existence.
She can do this by using her special power that brings all the citizens back into the world of color. Honestly that’s it. If you’re looking for anything else out of this video you’re stretching for material.
This whole video equates to an extreme cute overdose. For new recruits like me it does help in figuring out who is who since the familiar dance shot/close-up formula is strictly followed. Well this is when sleepy girl isn’t going around curing everyone of their lack of pigmentation disease. Performing that alternative idol medicine and all that.
If you don’t dig cute girls this video won’t be for you. Otherwise, good eye candy (especially Jurina) and while par for the course for idol videos, still entertaining enough.
