1. Kirameki Miraizu
As the debut for panache!, Kirameki Miraizu is interesting because it the group is of 3 cosplayers. I was surprised to hear so much auto-tune in the girls voices. Actually, their music and overall sound of the track reminds me of a harsher ClariS actually. I wonder how the song would’ve sounded like if there wasn’t so much auto-tune present tbh. It’s cute, but I think it would’ve been better had it not been so damn hard to tell the difference between the three ladies’ vocals.

I didn’t expect their B-side to be a cover of a rather well-known VOCOLOID song though I’m not sure why it got a remix tab on it. You’re essemtially getting more of the same from the previous track here so get ready for more assaults of auto-tune on your ears. The arrangement though is cute and I love the addition of piano in midst of the synths.
For a debut, panache! isn’t totally special but they are somewhat unique in the whole three cosplayers forming a group together. Their debut single, Kirameki Miraizu isn’t terrible but there’s definitely problems here. The overuse of auto-tune is probably the biggest flaw here since I couldn’t tell who was singing what through both tracks. Happy Synthesizer is a good cover though and I like it a bit more than the original strangely enough. I’m curious to see what they’ll do next as a group!
