Tip Taps PV/Artwork

It comes as a huge, audible sigh of relief that neither the cover to the new single or the PV share any connection to that Sunday morning anime the song has been tacked onto. It looks like that promotional nonsense has been contained to the stickers that are going to come with the single.

I'm still unsure about the song itself. It's vocoder opening is beyond awful, but on the whole there's just something inherently flat and listless about it. It's nice, yes, but doesn't it kind of sound like the b-side to the single we were all waiting so anxiously for?

The PV though, now this is something else. What on earth it's doing attached to Tip Taps Tip is beyond me, it's almost the opposite of the song it's promoting. This is thoughtful, different, imaginative, y'know all those words that you wanted to use to describe Tip Taps Tip but couldn't? It doesn't make the song suddenly good, naturally, but it does kick your mind back to that off kilter Halcali you fell in love with last year.

I've never really brought up H and Y's appearance before, but after that horror slap job their make up artist did on Yukari in that new promo shot, it's another relief to see how great they look here.

The old link expired, but I have the PV and i'm happy to share it. So if you'd like to see it, just leave a comment.

Also thanks to rachael for the alert about the cover being up.

It wouldn't play for me on a Mac using either QuickTime or WMP or RealPlayer. But on Windows it played using WMP.

I downloaded this player:

and it worked for me. Try it. ^_^


*im not sure what to make of the video though.....they look very cute, but it's all just a little bit strange....but not strange enough to be Halcali....*

It's definatly not the cute pre-Epic Halcali. It looks like they thought serious song- serious video. I like it though, esp. because it wasn't just a quick Eureka 7 cash in. Theres something about the video that sticks in the mind after its finished, which is something that I can't say for 95% of the other PV's i've seen recently. Anyway, i'm glad you could open it, and thanks for providing that link!
