I was surprised that Tsubaki’s 3rd single begins with a song that definitely calls up the Platinum era of Momusu almost too smoothly! There’s something about that intro that was pretty cool and then the piano comes into the track and the girls start to sing. I did notice that Yumeno and Kisora do get a bit of focus over the remaining ladies, but that’s OK…I’m believing that Yumeno is probably the group’s best asset currently. I do think it’s up there with “Kedakaku Sakihokore!” as a favorite.
2. Watashi ga Obasan ni Nattemo
Another Moritaka cover? Strange that it’s the other big song that H!P loves to cover. Unlike the futuristic vibes I got from “17sai”, this is pretty much standard EDM stuff from the company which is nice as it gives the song an updated feel. Tsubaki themselves sound fine if not a little bit shouty, but the verses are pretty sweet (especially with piano being in the forefront above the synths). It’s a decent cover at least and a nice opposite to “Hitorijime”.
As the group’s 3rd single, I feel like Hitorijime is a pretty strong song from them as it shows a bit more liveliness from the members (especially Kishimon, who just keeps getting better). I feel like Watashi ga Obasan ni Nattemo was a bit of a rushed song (ironic because it is the older of the two). Good single overall, but when are they debuting?
