Just saw it. It is fantastic ! They should shoot more PVs in this place.

Can't wait to listen to a better version of it. Will it be on Google Play Music ? An MP3 should do it until I'll get the CD.
Dose it have better dynamic range than the past songs ? The drums sound way more clear than in the past.

Also Haruna looks so good, can't say she is 30. She looks more like 16  masterpiece_mabataki - New Single - 『Masterpiece / Mabataki』 - Page 7 1f60d

I was supposed to be asleep 2.5 hours ago, but the release has me so hyped! Not so surprised that it's region-free, but the real surprise to me is that it's in HD. I was expecting 480p at best.

As for the video, there's nothing else to say except that it's amazing! I wonder what Mabataki's MV will be like.

I'm pretty happy with anything I see from them lately. I feel like whatever they do now is already more than I ever expected from them.

Can't really find anything to criticize about this song and video. Maybe I wish it went on longer?

I woke up today and looked at my phone, and there's this notification about Mabataki video...
So it's the first thing I see, it's only up for a couple of hours, and BAM!!!

This video ROKZZZZZZ!!!! After all the anticipation, once again I am amazed that SCANDAL is always so much better than I could imagine. 

And it's up world-wide! And it already has English subs!
Thank you, SCANDAL! Thank you, SCANDAL-HEAVEN! You guys are all so awesome...
ありがとうございました    Nice One Clap Amazed

I really, REALLY liked the video! The song was good, I bought the single on CD Japan after they released the short version (I don't even know if I'll get anything as a bonus lol).

I liked Mabataki better than Masterpiece, but I enjoyed both. They both have a "Honey" feel to them, but I think they're better than anything in Honey. I'm really looking forward to the Mabataki MV.

The best thing to me is that they're available worldwide again. This is so good, the MV is even in HD, I was so happy when I saw that. Now I'm hoping it gets available on Spotify soon. I wish they made everything else available as well, but at this point I don't think it's in their hands and whoever can make this decision won't do it.

(Also, loved the new design for the site!)

I've kinda been lurking around seeing what people's opinions were of this upcoming double side single.

Least to say SCANDAL has made a very smooth and positive impression with the move to their own label in association with Victor entertainment. They've released a kick ass MV, released to Spotify, I was not expecting the latter. 
I woke up to the sight of Masterpiece MV's being released, a few hours earlier, which I found very quickly in my messenger chat. 

Man I was excited. I watched the mv in bits as I got ready for Uni and have since played probably 6 times (which is probably not that many times compared to other people, however I kinda fell flat with SCANDAL's platform syndrome, sure it had a rock drive but it wasn't instantly a hit). This MV was shot well, it really expressed the energy and drive of Masterpiece very well. I remember when Awanai's MV was revolutionary for SCANDAL I think that this is the new evolution of that wow factor. I'm very happy and satisfied sound and visual wise this time round. Good work SCANDAL. I'll be getting my replay count up with this song, especially since better audio quality has arrived.

Using the SH YouTube account, I was able to add English subs to the official "Masterpiece" MV's CC options on YouTube! I also added an English translation of the video description.

Also, according to ROOFTOP's IG (SCANDAL's managing office), DaishinSZK, the director of the "Masterpiece" MV, had also directed the "Awanai Tsumori no, Genki de ne" MV.

Oh wow that explains a lot, no wonder some parts of it reminded me of Awanai, especially with the "turning red" part. Plus it was well shot

Thanks for the added Translations!

As expected the song is on Spotify US, good news just keeps coming

So cool to see they are accepting submitted translations. This should go a long way to help their music get spread on the west, and judging by the quality of the translation on the scandal-4 website, they need it  masterpiece_mabataki - New Single - 『Masterpiece / Mabataki』 - Page 7 1f602

It would help a lot if they would have their own online store where they can sell at least CD quality FLACs/WAVs. Paying 14 euro  + shipping, VAT and import for a CD with just 2 song is not really fair.

Did anyone else noticed that the link from video description to iTunes is for another band ? I don't remember them releasing an album called "On a Roll" in 2018.
