1. Doushiyou, Watashi

Being the leading track, Doushiyou, Watashi was something I wasn’t expecting from the (now quartet) at least not since “Ijiwaru Crazy love”.  It’s a bit more electronic than A-sides previous and it has a certain mature vibe to it.  I think the best part is that everyone has a lot of solos and spotlight (especially for Gotuu and Mororin who usually are in the back).  Also special mention to ex-ANGERME member, Kanon Fukuda, who wrote the lyrics for the song which is quite catchy.  Very cool song for the group and a smooth transition after Akkyan left the group.

2. Ichigo Ichie

The other A-side is a little more towards the group’s sound before the name change.  Meaning this song is a bit more guitar-heavy and just in-your-face which is nice since I’ve missed that sound that THE Possible was delving in through their 2nd/3rd album.  Little strange that I can see Buono! or even ANGERME be given this song and I think it’s from the producers here.  Still, the song is pretty much what I was expecting from the group.

3. Ai no Dotanba – Dai 6kan ni Iya na Yokan!? Kanashimi ni Kureru… Robin ver.
4. Ai no Dotanba – Suki Dakara Shinjiteta!? Namida ni Yureru… Gotuu ver.
5. Ai no Dotanba – Kowaresou na Glass no Heart!? Nayameru Joshi… Hashimon ver.
6. Ai no Dotanba – Nankai Demo Nando Demo!? Shiawase na Doko… Mororin ver.

It’s weird that the B-side of the single is split in the four regular versions here but are essentially the same track.  Ai no Dotanba is a quick-paced track for the group and while it might not be at the same levels of its A-sides it definitely stands out.  Though with the track having 4 different subtitles, this means that all four members have a different intro dialogue and final chorus corresponding to who is singing.  I personally think it’s just unnecessary and would’ve been perfectly fine as the only version of the B-side and not try to have each member have a small difference depending on which version you ended up buying.  Still besides that, I enjoyed the song for the most part and which it was an A-side!

 

 

This single was actually a lot better than their last single (which was their first under their new name).  All 3 songs gave a pretty good vibe even if it seriously is blending to H!P’s arrangements.  Also, I’ve mentioned already, but this is also the first single with only 4 members after Yurika’s announcement of leaving the group back in August.  Great single overall and their best one in quite a while!
