Well. This is much better than PPU.

Interesting. Like most of their songs it will grow on me. At least it's a better track then PPU. Now I hope the PV is good, but that might be asking to much.

I'm glad Risa got a nice Out Song that actually has her singing in it.

Risa sings in nearly every single she's been in, though. People really exaggerate how much she's been shafted.

I don't think she has ever been shafted. But I was expecting more Winky+Riho for this single and the usual random insert of Risa. I like that they didn't do that.

I think Koha and the Panda's got shafted on their outs. (but that is old news)

Well up until Ai and Risa, they never pulled out all these stops like getting their own versions (I think this is just UFA making their last bit of money rather than a big thank you for all the time put in), but I do agree with you.

It's not uncommon, though. Ishiguro, Nakazawa, Kei, Nacchi, Tsuji, Kago, Kaori, Konno, and Ogawa all had very shorts parts in their graduation songs. Kei doesn't even technically have a solo line in AS FOR ONE DAY. Yossie sort of did too, but it's not as noticeable because her song has always seemed very short.

Well Kago and Tsuji got W as a grad gift..at least that's how I see it. Ogawa got two big send offs and a nice solo part in Ribbon. Everyone else just got meh...but Kei got her own special copy of AS FOR ONE DAY so she at least got something right? lol

To be honest I was surprised with all the stop's they pulled out for Takitty's Grad and now the special cover and having Risa center. It makes me wonder what they will do for Winky and Sayu when their time comes.

Kei didn't get a special copy. But Tsunku reworked the instrumental of Never Forget for the b-side. I'm mostly talking about the A-side, though. Graduation singles generally have not heavily featured the girl graduating.

I mean she has lines for sure but she very seldom leads singles.
ajisaitea 16th-Mar-2012 03:55 am (UTC)
She's not a strong lead singer. Risa has always been better at harmony parts. Her vocals are stronger there. She has had solo songs; well covers of older songs; which can be found online. ^.^

I disagree. I think Risa is a really great, underrated singer although I'll admit her voice is a little too husky for idol pop.

Rika was never a strong lead singer, yet they put her all over the place. -_-

When I saw people saying it was dubstep-ish when the first previews came out I was really worried, but I actually enjoyed it!
nyappnyappcafe 15th-Mar-2012 09:09 pm (UTC)
I love the song, but I just can't with dubstep.
I just can not.
I will also be happy when we get to actually hear 10th gen or the rest of 9th gen.
But I will take this and I will appreciate this because it could always be chicken suits.

unpopular opinion but i really liked pyoko pyoko ultra. why all the hate??
sadistic_dance 16th-Mar-2012 01:41 am (UTC)
It was kind of weak for a post Ai single and no one liked that chicken stuff.
ajisaitea 16th-Mar-2012 04:06 am (UTC)
The song was not a good start for a post Takitty single or for 10th gen's intro.

I believe a lot of people thought it was gonna be a repeat of Maji Desu ka Ska and when it wasn't it was a rather big let down. Which is understandable; it was never gonna be the same anyway.

I personally don't like it because they tried to do the 'genki thing' which they are good at and then they pushed it way to hard with the PV. It just didn't work for me.
