A USB with the raw concert footage of Morning Musume Concert Tour 2012 Haru ~Ultra Smart~ will be available for purchase at an upcoming concert.
According to the announcement the raw concert footage will be from the noon concert on 5/6 and the USB will be for sale at the night concert. Also reading from Google’s Translation, it looks as though you will have to reserve this in advance too if you want a copy.
I wasn’t really expecting to see something like this again so soon. I thought that they would wait a bit to get some feedback from how Berryz Koubou’s USB went and then decide what to do from there. Though since they’re offering it for Morning Musume now it means either Berryz Koubou’s was a success or they’re still experimenting by offering the USBs.
I’m not too big on the raw concert footage. I can wait for the HQ release unless I’m really excited for the release but I hope that this will open the door for new things from H!P. Maybe one day they’ll offering HQ concert footage on USB and doing that may be faster than DVD releases so who knows what will happen with this. For now I’m just glad that UFA is experimenting and trying new things out. Please remember to support Morning Musume and reserve the USB if you can!
