When I was listening it (without watching the video) I thought haruna's voice has changed, but i didn't notice it was mami who was singing. ¿Am i right? If so, I want rina to sing too Tongue

Rina surprised me with her lipstick, it's so red for me but it's fine.

Thank you for the upload.

The PV was great, in my opinion. It really set the mood for the PV, and I liked how they all left at different moments. It wasn't just playing like Awanai was, and the scenery really was nice. It was like going to a beach house in the summer. When Haruna left for the solo, I liked how they centered on her singing alone right after. I also liked Haruna and Rina had some interaction on the beginning of the PV, because during lives, they don't have much. The rabbit was cool, and I think this is one of the best PVs that SCANDAL has ever released. They centered on whoever had the spotlight, and that's not something they usually do. Good job, SCANDAL.

What a great PV!
I love it's simple and yet very nice and beautiful.
Plus, there's both my fav Mami guitars lol

I like the way they left to play in a different room, specially Mami with that awesome mic in front of her.
It's way better than I expected, and because of that I think I can forgive the fact that they're not wearing the cover outfits.

They made a good PV, it's very... "classy" and suits the song melody well Happy

But I have to admit I expected something a bit different for a "summer single". Well with the moon theme i wonder why they didn't shoot outside at night for example. Strolling on the beach, playing on the beach at night, etc anyone yeah?

Also while it's classy (and classy sexy... RINA!! Love  ) it doesn't really feel like a "summer" PV. Not that you HAVE TO make a PV on the beach/pool in summer outfit/swinsuits or whatever of course, just my opinion and what I expected.

A bit surprised they didn't wear the cover outfits at all. They have so many single/PV now that it's hard to remember but wasn't this a "rule" for the band?

Eh maybe i'm totally wrong about this one, not sure why I have this idea in mind but I thought for each single they match the outfit on cover and the PV. That's why I expected a bit of a different style of PV =P

That being said the PV is really cool, they didn't fail or made a bad PV! Also the song is growing on me... Now I start to enjoy it much more. Nice One

Amazing PV.
Aaaah, black really suits them, the PV was indeed like RINA said quite sexy (especially HARU *i now i'm biased. lol)
But the white rabbit quite bothers me, i don't really see a significance.
The lyrics doesn't have an "usagi" or "rabbit" right? Well just a lil confused about the rabbit. ahahaha
And it's my first time to see  the Virgin Mary in PV, it's rare for a non catholic culture.


I was hoping they would all transfer to the room thingy, but they didn't. aw~ D:
Nonetheless, awesome PV and song from the girls Nose Bleed

How elegant they are in their black suits!^o^ I love the smooth feeling that emanates from the PV!
I am looking forward the translation of the song because I would like to know if there is a meaning behind the fact they are all going out in solos or if it is just like that ^^"
I saw also the live at music station which was quite good even if they seemed tired (we feel it in their voices) but I loved the beginning with the spotlights and Haruna was so energic, her enthousiasm was very communicative!Happy 
(If it is not the topic to talk about that, please could you redirect to the good topic? I am a new one member, thanks!^^")

 Wow, I really thought the rabbit was just a cute random thing Whistle 
Thank you for the explanation !

Usually I'm not a big fan of promotional videos, I really prefer watching the band play live. But this Kagen No Tsuki PV was quite nice. I liked the tone and the dark stage and the song is really starting to grow on me.

Of course I'm probably biased, but as if Mami wasn't standing out enough with her blonde and blue hair on this dark stage, she had to wear sparkling red pants ! I could barely detach my eyes of her. Amazed 
And evidently I loved her solo vocal part. I really would like to hear her more singing this way. I cannot find the way to describe it but her voice captivates me and it suits this part of the song very well.

Also I really enjoyed the instrumental bridge where only Mami, Tomomi and Rina play on the stage. The shots give a "live stage" feeling with the three of them playing and facing each other (and Mami beating the time with her foot). And when Haruna joins them with her voice, it completes this sequence really well and makes it the best part of the PV for me.

I haven't been able to watch their performance of the song on Music Station yet, but I'm really looking forward to watching them play it live on stage.

Just ordered Limited Edition B. I've heard the song a few times now and like it more each time. It didn't fit my expectation of a "summer song" at first, but considering the moon theme, I think it fits as a summer night song.

The PV is pretty well produced. The getting-up-and-walking-to-another-room part surprised me at first; when Rina stood up I thought, "Where is she going?!" And I thought the rabbit was really random until Jade explained the moon connection. Should've known that; Asian fail for me there!

Overall, the song and PV give a much more mature and "classy" vibe. I thought of FLiP when I saw their outfits in the PV.

Thanks for the clarification thoseguiltyeyes! Both the song and the rabbit reminded me of their last concert in 2011 was at the night of Moon Festival in my city. And rabbit is the mascot of the festival.
Somebody from the Hong Kong team even gave Mami a Rabbit lantern to play around before the show. The picture was in one of their photo book edition.

I really like the PV. Elegant and mature. I generally prefer simple-looking PVs compared to something like 'Taiyou Scandalous' with the dancing in the swimming pool lol! And all the girls look great, especially Rina with her dark hair and red lipstick.
Love 

I like how they threw in the rabbit reference too.

My friend in Japan is sending me a copy, though she hasn't said which version, so that'll be a nice surprise.

Apparently some stores give a free art card with the single depending on which member you prefer. I'll be expecting a Haruna card then

Just watched the full PV and listened to Kagen no Tsuki in full for the first time. I love it! Very relaxing song.

I was hesitant on buying the single because I really don't like the B-side "robot song", but the A-side song is really growing on me. Also I read in this thread that CDJapan is doing the poster and sticker thing again. I will gladly add to my SCANDAL poster collection Ehem 

I think I'll be getting regular edition again. I don't know Japanese so those I can't really enjoy those videos to its full extent.

edit: wow first press and poster all sold out...DOUSHIO?!!!WTF!

edit2: oh thank god, the limited editions still have first press and poster. yokataaaa Tears of Joy  Guess I'll be getting Limited Ed. A afterall, lol...
