Wagakki Band - 華火 ~Hanabi~ (Short Version)
This is a preview of their upcoming single written by their lead singer Yuko Suzuhana after the release of their debut vocaloid cover album this past spring. Yuko is pretty but she seems a bit awkward in her solo poses. The CG work looks better than expected with the use of colorfully lit, detailed fantasy setting. Still I feel shooting on location at a historical site has a more authentic and romantic feel like Gackt's “Sakura, chiru…" PV. I guess AVEX (their record label) is going all in with their marketing budget due to the great response from overseas fans on their Facebook page. As for the song itself I was hoping for something with a lot more punch like their awesome cover of "Senbon zakura.” Perhaps the full track will be better? One can only hope.

Nightmare - Drastica (Short PV edit)
Nightmare's new album, “TO BE OR NOT TO BE”, drops next Wednesday. This PV looks almost the same as the last one, “Gallows,” except with hoods. (-_-;) Wow what happened? The “Dizzy" PV was actually cooler in terms of sound and visual style. I wouldn’t have mind to get more of that.
NoGoD - Sakura (promo edit)
NoGoD's latest mini “四季彩 [Shikisai]”, which has three re-recorded tracks and one new song, just went on sale last Wednesday. Anyone heard it yet? I am liking the acoustic intro here for “Sakura,” but got kinda bored when the real song kicked in. :/

1. 櫻 (Re-recording)
3. あの日の空は極彩で (Re-recording)
4. 彩白 (Re-recording)
Nightmare - Gallows (Short PV version)
The PV is too short for me to say it’s great, but it’s at least more interesting than the latest single, “Rewrite.” The new album “TO BE OR NOT TO BE" is coming out March 19th. There are 3 versions. Below is the track list from the regular version.

Gackt - P.S. I Love You (PV)
The PV is a seven minutes mini-film for his latest single released two days ago, so the song pauses a bit here and there. It’s actually better than I expected and not full of the “daikishimeru” or various forms of this word that was used in his old ballads. Still “P.S. I Love You" is not much of a departure from what he has been releasing lately. "Sakura, chiru…" is the only standout so far. :/
