Happy new year! Let’s welcome 2022 with the usual list of the best MV’s released in December. Some pretty good ones came out at the end of the year, so let’s take a look at them!
10) PIGGS – NOT PIG
To pig or not to pig? That is the question, and PIGGS answer with a nice song with a vertical video. The red dresses of the girls, the catchy vocal lines and the pop-punk-ish energy in “NOT PIG” are all good reasons to enjoy this MV.
09) 15GERM – シューティングスター (Shooting Star)
15GERM keep releasing MV’s one after another, and this means they deserve a place on this Top 10. Last month we got three videos from them, among which I chose the piano melody and the complex beats of “Shooting Star” as my favorite, although I recommend you to check out the other ones as well.
08) FRUITPOCHETTE – 孤高-Captivate-
As one of the oldest groups of the alt-idol scene, it’s always nice to get a new MV from FRUITPOCHETTE. The powerful heavy metal sound of “孤高-Captivate-” features intense rhythms and aggressive guitars combined with the two girls’ vocals, which which is why we have been loving them for all this time.
07) MANACLE – BAN your HURT
The latest MV by MANACLE for “BAN your HURT” shows us the girls on a stage with a backing band, which is a pretty nice view. The catchy and intense idol rock sound of the song is also very enjoyable and proves that the group is doing really well.
06) 東京サイコパス (Tokyo Psychopath) – いいねパラサイト (Ī Ne Parasite)
In case you needed some more metal idols, let me introduce you to Tokyo Psychopath, which sound more or less like… psychopaths, indeed. If you are searching for a group with unconventional (at least for idols) looks and hardcore music, they are a good choice.
05) NELN – ストロベリー (Strawberry)
Despite having lost one member, NELN are still doing great. “Strawberry” is among their best songs (at least for me), with its delicate synth pop sound. Also, we got another MV with red-dressed girls, which should not be a surprise in December, right?
04) 神使轟く、激情の如く。 (Shingeki) – 神奏曲:ライトニング (Shinsōkyoku: Lightning)
I could just say here’s the usual Shingeki and you would probably get what I mean. Of course, crazy intense metal sound with some idol-ish parts, a bit of rap here and there, a catchy chorus and a breakdown. Yes, that’s literally what “Shinsōkyoku: Lightning” is made of, and that’s we love this group.
03) nonamera – NO NAME
“NO NAME” is the latest result of nonamera‘s dive in EDM and electronic music, and it sound quite interesting. Combine it with a city-at-night-themed video full of vivid colors and effects, and you’ll get how awesome this MV is, despite being only two minutes and half long.
02) situasion – I would prefer not to
There are not many groups like situasion, which means we have to fully enjoy every time they release something. To be honest, I completely fell in love with the gentle but intense post-rock-ish sound of “I would prefer not to”. I definitely need more stuff from them.
01) ぜんぶ君のせいだ。 (Zenbukiminoseida.) – Underscore
Yes, we have been talking a lot about Zenbukiminoseida. lately, but we have our reasons. Simply put, they have been releasing great music (and videos as well), like “Underscore” with its unpredictable and complex mathcore-like sound featuring crazy screams and electronic beats.
