1. Suki yo, Junjou Hankouki.

To be honest, I was waiting for a new “Yumemiru 15sai” for a long time and I’m super happy to hear that Suki yo would follow closely behind being a little more serious and danceable.  However, I’m loving that Rinapuu and Kanana have a buttload more lines than before which FINALLY shows a bit of equal line distribution.  It’s a really cool song from them and it’s been a long time coming from them.

2. Kimi wa Jitensha Watashi wa Densha de Kitaku

Isn’t it a little too early to be covering °C-ute’s recent single?  I don’t know why but since the song is used for the horror movie S/mileage is in, I feel even more baffled to see this being covered (moreso of the fact that it’s the only B-side present as well).  Also it’s been quite a while since we’ve seen S/mileage (as in the group) do a ballad.  Of course the girls are higher-pitched which makes the song have a cuter feel but somehow I feel like it’s a smidge better than the original?  Maybe it’s the youthful vocals, but I liked it.

 

 

Wow, for being a smaller single (no original B-side this time), Suki yo, Junjou Hankouki. is actually a surprisingly good single.  I really love the A-side and the power of the song stood out (they should stick with this more often).  Their °C-ute cover was good too, but a little surprising because the original was so recent.  Strong single overall!
