|Don't let the title caption fool you.|
I think the biggest detractor is that the song is only okay. It is not a bad song but rather generic J-pop that I do not see doing well without the attached performance. So I really wish A.B.C-Z got a more stand out song for such a stand out PV. But even so I think they did great with pairing the song up with a great PV.

|Feeling the vertigo.|
|I don't think that's how you fall down, Kawai...|
While I am happy with the Juniors not only being in the PV but being very interactive with the A.B.C-Z members I cannot help but wonder if A.B.C-Z fans are unhappy about it. I honestly think it is good as the colors of the Juniors outfits help the group stand out and in a way solidify that the five are the stars of the PV. And honestly to do everything they do the Juniors are kinda needed to move things on and off stage.
|Don't think Johnny was fool enough to say 'no' for a debut to a face like this.|
|Sometimes it's hard to remember that these are the two young ones.|
|Look! It's a Moonwalker!|
|I'm sure they're waiting to see if those two will be taken out by a billboard.|
And while I am sure the A.B.C-Z guys probably did not have much trouble with the performance I am amazed at how well the Juniors did. Especially with trying to be as in sync as possible. But it probably helped that they got to trade out places throughout compared to A.B.C-Z that were constantly on screen.
|Nothing wrong with guys being flexible. ^__--|
Yet another part that screen caps fail to really capture how good it is. But seeing each member of A.B.C-Z move across the stages in a semi-relay is another batch of fun as you try to see what is all going on on the screen.
|Jesse is probably just happy not to be shoved in the back for once.|
|Just in case you forgot that 'star' was in the song's title.|
|Failed sentai idea #50: the all White Ranger team.|
|They're asleep! Let's finally go home!|
So while I may not be a A.B.C-Z fan, I am a fan of this PV. It is the best debut PV I have ever seen for a group honestly. And I think A.B.C-Z really knew what they were doing when they asked about debuting with a DVD instead of a CD. I would not be surprised if they continue to keep releasing solid efforts from here on out as well even if they may never have the huge numbers of some of their peers.
I hope when the sales numbers come out for this release they come out strong. The guys deserve it for putting out a release that looks to be well worth the cost and then some.
