1. Koi wa Accha Accha
Since the other A-side is more focused on Ayacho, the primary A-side Koi wa Accha Accha is here to introduce us to the group’s two newest members, Haruka Oota & Reira (or Layla depending) Ise. I do like that it kind of reminds me of C-ute’s “The Power” because both had heavy Indian vibes going on and are pretty danceable. I kind of already enjoy Reira’s vocals a lot and Haruka is OK for right now…interesting additions to the group to say the least. The rest of the girls get some decent time with solos (except for Kanana and Rinapuu for some reason). Regardless, the song is a bit of a bop and can be quite the earworm!
2. Yumemita 15nen
Immediately just from the title alone, it screamed nostalgia back to S/mileage’s first major single, “Yumemiru 15sai”. Though it’s definitely not like the mentioned song because this tune is meant to kind of send off Ayacho (the last of the original S/mileage members) who is graduating. Yumemita 15nen sadly isn’t quite the song that I was hoping it would be because it’s a bit more mellow and kind of feels more like a sentimental feeling throughout. It definitely works with the PV and lyrics it got but as song alone, I just kind of passed it up.
ANGERME’s going through some big changes again with both two new members and a graduation! Though I kind of feel slightly disappointed in this single. In a way, I do like that Koi wa Accha Accha did a lot to show all the members and giving the new girls something to work with, but my disappointment is more with Yumemita 15nen being kind of a poor sendoff to Ayacho (especially with her tenure from the Eggs to SCE!/Lilpri to S/mileage and now ANGERME…you’d think they’d celebrate her time a LOT more, hell Kanon got a solo song for her last single….there better be a damn album announcement soon!
