1. Summer Flag!
I was surprised to hear Shion again and her return with something that’s true to her sound and something a bit more lively and suiting for the Summer time. It also does have a certain anison vibe to it which makes sense as her earlier singles were tied to different animes (though I recall this one doesn’t). There’s something a little different about her voice though and I think it’s slightly deeper and maybe a smidge more nasally. This was a nice track though for how long we’ve waited for this…maybe wasn’t a good choice.
2. Hanabi ga Agattara
Unlike it’s sister A-side, Hanabi ga Agattara is a bit more of a serious song that focus a little more on Shion’s vocals which is more familiar to me than the tone she took for “Summer Flag!”. Despite the fact the melody of the track is nothing totally spectacular and things can be compared to other guitar-ladened singers, it’s not too bad.
Wow, almost 4 years without a single from Shion Tsuji…talk about a wait (although she did manage a couple digital singles in the last year). While the single isn’t something to write home about, it’s nothing bad which is definitely a plus. Still, I just hope we don’t have to wait too long for the next release from her >.<
