1. Ten Made Nobore! / Hello Pro! Kenshuusei feat. Juice=Juice
So this single is considered the Kenshuusei’s (or H!P’s trainees) second single and Juice=Juice’s 3rd indies…weird. Ten Made Nobore! for the Kenshuusei is a bit of a change after their first single “Kanojo ni Naritai!!” where it went from all that energy to a bit more of a softer and slightly cheesier track. It’s kind of like an album song from a S/mileage album because it’s all sung in unison for one thing and the sound just kind of suits them. It’s not an offensive song but I kind of got tired of listening to it after a while.
2. Ten Made Nobore! / Juice=Juice
I was hoping there’d be a musical difference between the two versions but that doesn’t seem to really happen. The biggest difference is of course it’s just the 6 of them singing. After their first two singles to come into this song, is also a big dropoff because I don’t really feel this song suits them. I’m also a little disappointed that Yuka and Akari didn’t get ANY solo lines in the song which makes me frown >.<. I still don’t really care for the song much right now.
You know, this single was a bit meh to me! I feel like for both sides of the coin (Kenshuusei and J=J), this was just slightly underwhelming. Granted, Ten Made Nobore! lyrically makes more sense for the Kenshuusei like “Kanojo ni Naritai!!” was for them so I can see this being performed a lot. HOWEVER, for Juice=Juice, this seems to come as at a strange time because they announced their major label debut after this, so it seems so uncharacteristic for them to be doing this IMHO. Oh well lol.
