Mizuki Nana – Musterion PV
So I saw the 30-second clip this morning and thought “hey, maybe I should go BLOG or something!”
Uh, yeah. Tell me I’m not the only one who thought that symbol on her arm (and in the background) was a swastika.
“Musterion” (μυστήριον) is Greek for “mystery” or “secret”.
When I first heard the song a few weeks back, it really did not leave a huge impression on me. Kind of like Etsuraku Camellia, but not. I know jack about music but the rhythm is all over the place and just really hard on the ears. After looping it for a good while I still don’t feel that it’s on the “OMGGG EPICC” level yet… Then again, there are many Nana songs that I’ve thought the same thing about but ended up liking a lot months later.
The PV is alright, not bad at all and it doesn’t look like it has a crappy budget (yet). Reminds me of a brighter and more colourful Trickster PV. If she had been wearing a tie again gawdd my life would be complete.
Lately it seems that Mizuki Nana’s songs have a lot less… what would you call it, “staying power”? I don’t feel like they are songs I will loop over and over after the initial wave. I can say confidently that if this song had come before the whole Tenkuu no Canaria, Juujika no Spread, and UNCHAIN∞WORLD wave, I would have liked it a lot more. Nowadays it just seems like everything sounds the same…
It’s also the first time in a while that I actually had to consider whether I should buy the eighth album or not. I still haven’t made a decision. I fear that my fandom may be fading away :\
PS. On the brighter side, hell yeahhhhh Nana on Shin Kuwazu Kirai Ou (sp?) on June 17! I love that show :) For those unfamiliar, it’s basically a food show where two people try to figure out which dish (out of five choices) is most disliked by the other person. I wonder who her “partner” will be? There are actually news articles reporting people’s fans’ fear that they might use the infamously hated tomato for Nana’s least favourite food so I think the show might actually try to steer away from that.
PPS. I want to mention this but I don’t want to be totally creepy and open a new post. Yukarin posted a picture of her thighs on Twitter the other day___________ orz
