1. Ryuusei no Namida
Great, another GUNDAM tie-in that doesn’t suck at all. Ryuusei no Namida is definitely different from a good portion of previously released GUNDAM songs as it’s a ballad. What impressed by far is how soothing and sweet Chiaki’s vocals are in the song. They brought the right kind of melancholic sound and I really that it was a pretty emotional song from the lyrics. Her voice can be a little weak in the chorus and especially near the end where she adlibs, but otherwise Ryuusei no Namida is one good debut song.
2. Kekkei IN MY BED
As if I was proving wrong, Kekkei IN MY BED is actually a rock tune and I was surprised to see that Chiaki pulled something off like this because it’s actually quite good. The arrangement reminds me of Sonic the Hedgehog, but it’s pretty kickass and makes for a pretty good B-side. I just like that it lightens the mood up after “Ryuusei no Namida”.
3. Ryuusei no Namida (MOVIE Version)
The GUNDAM edition of the single includes a short movie version of the song and while it takes out most of the beginning of various parts of the song, it retains the pretty good parts of the song and I still enjoy the magical feeling of the song.
First things first….I SO CALLED CHiAKi STARTING UP A SOLO CAREER!!!! BOOYA!!!!. Anyways, since that’s off my chest, my next thing is so far all the people who debuted so far this year had amazing debuts and better than most of what people we know and love have so far released. Ryuusei no Namida is a pretty cool ballad and shows a softer side to Chiaki (since we all know she’s kickass in everything else she does). Kekkei IN MY BED was actually quite good as well since it shows her rocker side a bit. I can’t wait to see more from her in the future.
