the song isn't bad, and i like the concept of the video (and when miyako starts grooving while nicole is singing) but damn that cg is like MDD level bad (especially with the hair)
there's some nice touches in it though, with the girl's personal body language and stuff, like when they're stepping over the stuff on the roof and they each go over it a different way (jumping, stepping carefully etc)
i think miyako is now my fave just because of her much character she has in the clip, with her moving about in her chair and stuff.

also disappointed that miu lost her hair-covering-face look. when I first saw that key art group shot of them with her having her hair pushed away from her eyes a while ago I didn't recognise her lol. she's kinda boring now

I liked Miu originally because her hair covered her eyes and I thought that was cute, but they ended up deciding to take away that thing that made her kind of unique? Sad... hopefully a future video will go back to her original design.

The video isn't bad, never been a huge fan of CG stuff like this though because the shadowing tends to look a bit off (especially on the uniforms).

It's really expresionless though, they should have gone with 2D drawings for everything that isn't dance moves. I understand that would have been expensive but looking this cheap can't be good for your product either.
