EXILE – New Horizon music video

Japanese music video for New Horizon, released in July 2014 by EXILE, a popular Japanese pop group. Just an OK song, the video is beautiful though.

The boy band was formed in 2001. About half of the 19 members are in their 30’s (the eldest is 45), but the group will continue to bring in new blood to keep them running like a franchise. As a matter of fact, this is the first (official) single featuring five new members.

World Order – Have A Nice Day (in Akihabara)

Japanese music video for Have A Nice Day by techno-pop group World Order. Decent song, interesting choreography and video concept…

The MV featured many elements of Tokyo’s Akihabara Electric Town, e.g. cosplay, specialist stores, maid cafe, anime, arcades, and girl group AKB48 etc.

World Order was formed in 2009 by Genki Sudo, a retired mix-martial artist and kickboxer, who also wrote most (if not all) of the group’s songs.
