Morning Musume ’16 Sakura, Haruka and Mizuki go Feline Fatale in “Sexy Cat no Enzetsu”

The music video for the new Morning Musume ’16 PV “Sexy Cat no Enzetsu” has been released to the group’s official YouTube channel.

With lyrics and music by the legendary Tsunku♂ and arrangement by long-time contributor Kaori Okubo, the group combines their signature sound with a jazzy saxophone riff.

In the video, Morning Musume ’16 members Mizuki Fukumura, Haruka Kudo, and Sakura Oda take the form of anthropomorphic felines to ruin the lives of their group members, from knocking over their Jenga tower mid-game, messing up their nail polish, and hanging the phone up on them. But instead of getting too caught up in the destruction, they realize it’s better to roll with the punches and have a little fun with their feline friends.

Namie Amuro cozies up with Shinigami in “Fighter” PV

The short version of Namie Amuro‘s newest video “Fighter” for the upcoming film Death Note: Light Up The New World has been released to her official YouTube channel. The song is an English-language dance number written from the point of view of the character Death Note character Misa Amane.

On trend with her recent releases, Amuro serves heavens-high production value yet again.

The video takes place in a floating cubical fortress chained above a body of water. The camera traverses through the interior where we meet Amuro in a long, winding hallway with doors leading to different dimension-defying locations. Between choreography (which is really… something else), she soon finds herself in a bright dining room where the shinigami Ryuk sits  with a plate apples. With her eyes glowing red, I don’t trust whatever they’re plotting.

Check out the short PV below:
