Filed under: Leo Ieiri — solarblade @ 7:58 pm

Track Listing

  1. Bless You
  2. Ijiwaru na Kamisama
  3. Kokoro no Ka・ta・chi
  4. Bless You (Instrumental)
  5. Ijiwaru na Kamisama (Instrumental)
  6. Kokoro no Ka・ta・chi (Instrumental)

1. Bless You

Wow, the song just starts immediately with Leo singing the chorus quite loudly o.0.  This song kind of follows after “Shine” by being a rock track but has that positive drive.  I just love how powerful her voice can get since she wows me with this performance.  Though I still prefer “Sabrina” and “Shine” more, this song is definitely strong in its own right and stands out from the singles as well. 

2. Ijiwaru na Kamisama

I didn’t expect the first B-side to have been used for Pocky CMs..but here we are XD.  I guess I shouldn’t be surprised that it does have a cuter side to it amongst her other songs.  To me, the song isn’t really amongst the best and I kind of forget about it since “Bless You” came beforehand…It’s just there.

3. Kokoro no Ka・ta・chi

The second B-side once again fits in the veins of “Shine” and “Bless You” with the rock background but that positivity about it makes it kind of pop out.  The only thing is that unlike those two tracks, this song doesn’t have a very loud and powerful chorus.  It just stays at the same pace most of the time.  SOOOO it kind of tries to be good, but misses it.



As the 3rd and final single before Leo’s debut album, “LEO”, Bless You kind of came up short this time around.  The leading track is pretty strong and ranks up their with her previous A-sides but both of the B-sides lacked that same energy.  Ijiwaru no Kamisama is quite forgettable in the long run and Kokoro no Ka・ta・chi tried to be like the A-sides but had a disappointing chorus.  I’m still excited for the album though ^_^!

    I think the last three singles really showed off the dexterity of Ieiri’s voice. Her expression and technique easily outshines many singers twice her age. While this single, as you’ve pointed out, isn’t as novel and catchy as the previous two, I feel that it is nonetheless a meaningful one because we get to see a much more passionate delivery from her in the A-side.
