MoMusu's latest double-A single

So here we have a PV preview of Kono Chikyu no Heiwa wo Honki de Negatteirundayo! & Kare to Issho ni Omise ga Shitai.

Kono Chikyu:
Kyaa, the 9th gens look so adorable in their pajamas, getting out of their beds!
The video then degenerates into generic idol dance shoot.
Gold dresses don't look that great when on a mostly golden background.
The designs seem to be a ripoff of Only You's designs, and might be an homage to Aichan's new blonde do. I have a suspiscion of my own:
Costume designer A: Whoa, we've still got all this gold material left from Kiss Me Aishiteru
Costume designer B: Yeah, who'd have thunk that we only need one person's worth of material to clothe up all five members?
Costume designer A: We can probably use this for another single
Costume designer B: Maybe Takahashi-san's last single? She just went blonde, so it would be fitting
Music-wise, I like the jazzy introduction. And the first verse sounds promising. And then they hit the chorus, and you get back to the realm of generic idol music.
Don't get me wrong, the song is alright - but merely ok. Doesn't feel great.
And I realise I prefer Gaki's lines over Aichan's in the song.

Kare to Issho:
Well, the director seems to have got inspiration from the recent success of Kyary's PONPONPON.
Lucy in the sky with... dancers?
The costumes are pretty horrible. The choice of colour suggests that the designers were averse to running away from the red, yellow, and blues of the colour palette.
The arrangement of the video has an amateurish charm to it. It reminds me of 3,2,1 Breakin Out's PV and the contest PVs.
Although the constant usage of floating heads in the video are an abomination. Please, floating heads don't work. Not even in bad horror movies.
Second Morning: The curse of the 1st and 2nd gen's floating heads

I still like the song, though it's charm has worn off.
