Girls Generation vs Shoujo Jidai ‘Gee’

aka an excuse to post ‘Gee’ multiple times.

So, Soh Nyuh Shi Dae aka SNSD aka Girls Generation debuted in Japan as Shoujo Jidai. And they’ve just released their biggest Korean hit, ‘Gee’ in Japan. (In Japanese, obviously.)

First of all, I don’t care what anyone thinks, I love that Minho is in the JMV as well as the KMV. Hyungwhore gets hardly any screentime in his own MVs, and I don’t really see why it should have to be a Japanese boy just because it’s a Japanese single.
As for the song… SNSD’s Japanese pronunciation isn’t great. Sooyoung and Seohyun are best, obviously because they are the most fluent in Japanese. Also, hearing the lyrics in Japanese is a bit of a mindfuck. It just sounds wrong. Because I’ve heard the Korean version SO many times, and I do have a fair idea of the lyrics, and how they should sound. So hearing:

yaba chincha chincha honto wa, No no no no no!
yappa meccha meccha ki ni naru, Oh oh oh oh oh!
hora chowa chowa kono mama, Gee gee gee gee gee
koishitai no (Oh yeah!) aishitai no (Oh yeah yeah yeah)

instead of

Neomu banjjak banjjak nooni booshuh no no no no no
Neomu kkamjjak kkamjjak nollan naneun oh oh oh oh oh
Neomu jjarit jjarit momi ddeullyuh gee gee gee gee gee
O juhjeun nunbit (oh yeah~) oh joeun hyanggee (oh yeah yeah yeah~)

is just very strange. I don’t dislike it. It’s more like just because I’m not expecting it.
Also, this is amazing but it seems like the girls voices are even higher in Japanese. Especially Sooyoung and Sunny. Especially especially Sooyoung because I never expect her voice to be as high as it is.

As for the MV itself, JMV has a much higher budget. Sets and fashion and camera-work all looks better. That said, I have always though Gee MV was a bit of a clusterfuck.

I mean, in the original you had the messing about in the store, two choreo scenes, and the random angelic sitting laughing towards the end all messily edited together. And I sort of thought the JMV would take the oppurtunity to streamline things a bit, but no. Indeed, we get extra scenes.

I don’t even know what was going on there. It just felt a bit messy and all over the place.

Actually, my big problem with the MV is how creeped out I am at Tiffany and Sunny’s faces. Let’s be frank, plastic surgery is not uncommon in Asian entertainment. I love Jaejoong, I love Eeteuk, I love Hara, I love Uee. I have no problem with plastic surgery. But… With Tiffany and Sunny, it’s like their faces have changed enough to be noticable, but not enough to look really different. There’s something strange about watching them, that there’s something wrong I can’t quite put my finger on. I do feel a bit sad when I look at Tiffany because she was perfect before.

I sound like I’m complaining but I do love Gee.

Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt 01

To be honest, I wasn’t sure I’d like P&S. I hate potty humour, with a firey passion. Like, walk out a room rather than watch type of hate.
But, the visual style looked awesome, and, well, cute girls. Plus it looked like the Power Puff Girls and fuck me if that isn’t the best show ever.

If you’ve never watched this, we’ll never be friends.

Anyway, I was feeling pretty meh about P&S. Panty and Stocking themselves are ADORABLE both in character design and personality. Too much fun.
Then this happened.




Let me tell you, that buys you at least 4 more episodes of my time. More if we’ll get a transformation every episode.

If the entire series was animated in this style, it would be insta-fave of the season.

If Panty wears panties and Stocking wears stockings (or, long socks, whatever), does Garterbelt wear garter belts? Don’t wish to see that, thank you.
