1. Konna Watashi de Yokattara

I kind of like the direction she took with Konna Watashi de Yokattara actually since the song feels different and not so much an idol song unlike the previous two A-sides she’s had.  I’m also loving the electro beat she’s pulling off in the chorus since it gives a song a different color and such.  I might have said that “Hapirapi ~Sunrise~” was good but this blows it out of the water. 

2. Early Snow

Of course we’re going to get a winter ballad from Yuu since it’s that time of the season.  Her vocals are rather sweet and soft to listen to and it justs flows smoohly along the arrangement which the typical fare of strings, piano, acoustic guitar, and jingle bells.  To people this might come off as a little bland and disappointing considering the last single had good ballads.  Just a little underwhelming but at least she sounds good for ballads.

3. Konna Watashi de Yokattara (REMIX)

As with each single she’s released we get a remix of the A-side.  Considering it feels like it’s a club mix since it has a long intro before the actual song kicks in.  I will say I’m surprised that used ~dance~ so much in this remix…but when Yuu is actually singing, the remix is great making it more electro and heavy.  I just wish there was a little more to it and didn’t rely on the damn repetition!

 

 

I’m surprised this single was pretty simple where there wasn’t a bunch of different editions!  Konna Watashi de Yokattara is her best A-side and shows a lot of hope for our ex H!P Egg.  I think she could do more danceable songs since I think it suits her (but at least let her sound like a singer and less of an idol).  Early Snow is B-side throwaway simply because it’s just plain and white.  The remix could’ve been handled a lot better but the actual song was SOOO good luckily.
