1. Oheso no Kuni Kara Konnichiwa
LOL at Hamaura opening the song in such a victorious way to enter our cool EDM song from the group! Now looking at the cover, there’s a lot of ladies involved and thought it was going to be all unison like “Ten Made Nobore!” was but hey 8 solos from Ayano Hamaura, Mizuki Murota, Kurumi Yoshihashi, Rie Kaneko, Nanami Tanabe, Fuyuka Kosuga, Rena Ogawa, and Kaede Kaga (some…their last appearance like Kaneko, Yoshihashi, Kosuga, and Tanabe). The tune is pretty epic and really suited the EDM-style Hello! Project was diving deep into. The song is hilarious, yet cool at the same time and just crazy catchy. Definitely my favorite of their A-sides thus far!
2. Ten Made Nobore! feat. Juice=Juice
I’m not sure why they had to include Ten Made Nobore! considering it was their 2nd single but it’s whatever. The song is pretty light and airy and has a simple idol arrangement which sounds nice, but there’s no solos to be had unlike the main course on this single. The horns add a cute thing, but I’m just overall tired of it listening to it and is WAY overplayed in 2014.
As the Kenshuusei’s 3rd single, Oheso no Kuni Kara Konnichiwa is a pretty awesome song for the trainees as it really makes them feel like they’re still H!P members even if it’s not an official thing. The song is heavy and way catchy and the amount of solos was unexpected but awesome (as of 2015 only one of those girls with a solo is still a KSS). Now, I’m not sure why Ten Made Nobore! was tacked on besides the possibility that this is a DVD single so both PVs are on it (Ten Made Nobore! was an indies single for the KSS and Juice=Juice simultaneously). Overall not bad, but Oheso is the song to listen to.
