1. Kanojo ni Naritai!!!

Going back to the Kenshuusei actual debut single, I was expecting everyone to be involved, but this song is actually only sung by 5 members (Karin Miyamoto, Natsumi Taguchi, Aina Otsuka, Nanami Tanabe, and Ayano Hamaura.  Now the song is VERY upbeat and reminds me a lot of S/mileage’s “Uchouten LOVE” which wasn’t too far apart from one another lol.  The only solos were for Karin, Ayano, and Nanami but it still was a pretty energetic song and while for a while it grated on my nerves because of how overplayed it was in concerts, it’s still a catchy song!

 

 

I would’ve never thought that the Eggs (or Kenshuusei at this point in time) would EVER release something of their own and it turns out not so bad!  Kanojo ni Naritai!!! as a debut is not bad, does get tiresome after a while, but not a bad song once you’re used to the energy and overload of synths!

1. Ten Made Nobore! / Hello Pro! Kenshuusei feat. Juice=Juice

So this single is considered the Kenshuusei’s (or H!P’s trainees) second single and Juice=Juice’s 3rd indies…weird.  Ten Made Nobore! for the Kenshuusei is a bit of a change after their first single “Kanojo ni Naritai!!” where it went from all that energy to a bit more of a softer and slightly cheesier track.  It’s kind of like an album song from a S/mileage album because it’s all sung in unison for one thing and the sound just kind of suits them.  It’s not an offensive song but I kind of got tired of listening to it after a while.

2. Ten Made Nobore! / Juice=Juice

I was hoping there’d be a musical difference between the two versions but that doesn’t seem to really happen.  The biggest difference is of course it’s just the 6 of them singing.  After their first two singles to come into this song, is also a big dropoff because I don’t really feel this song suits them.  I’m also a little disappointed that Yuka and Akari didn’t get ANY solo lines in the song which makes me frown >.<.  I still don’t really care for the song much right now.

You know, this single was a bit meh to me!  I feel like for both sides of the coin (Kenshuusei and J=J), this was just slightly underwhelming.  Granted, Ten Made Nobore! lyrically makes more sense for the Kenshuusei like “Kanojo ni Naritai!!” was for them so I can see this being performed a lot.  HOWEVER, for Juice=Juice, this seems to come as at a strange time because they announced their major label debut after this, so it seems so uncharacteristic for them to be doing this IMHO.  Oh well lol.
