1. Yume no Tsuzuki

So Konomi is once again going for the cuter side of the anison world with Yume no Tsuzuki.  At least this song really lets Konomi show off her vocal skills and I’m quite impressed with what I hear from her.  Besides the good vocals and nice melody, the arrangement is your typical anison breezy cute song with strings and such…Not bad, but kind of ehhhh.

2. Shuujin -Paradox 2013-

So the B-side it seems is a ballad at first but becomes this dramatic almost goth like song like “CHOIR JAIL” and I’m happy that Konomi did slightly go back towards that sound because her voice REALLY suits a more edgier and heavy song…especially the high notes she hits!  Then the chorus hits and it comes disappointing since it’s not exciting and meh to me but the rest of the song is too cool!

Konomi’s 3rd single and she kind of fixed the problems that were oh so relevant in “DAYS of DASH”.  Neither songs were terrible but they still leave little of an impression on me besides the fact that Konomi can really sing!  I just wish she got some awesome producers to back her up, because this is not really working out for her.

 

Konomi Suzuki – DAYS of DASH November 25, 2012

1. DAYS of DASH

Well after “CHOIR JAIL”, I wasn’t expecting Konomi to move onto something much more cuter and sugary (sounds similar to Sayaka huh?).  DAYS of DASH is a bright song that caters more of Konomi’s cuter vocals as well, but I think she tackled it nicely but the song is a bit *shrugs*.  I’m not too impressed with this song.

2. Fly to the stars

I will say that I’m a little more inclined with the B-side even though it’s more of the usual anison stuff.  I do like the energy of the song and the power from Konomi here as well.  It’s probably my favorite track from Konomi so far in her career, that I’ll give…but she needs something more.

 

 

Already on her second single, Konomi switched style from a darker setting to a more bright and happier setting with DAYS of DASH.  The single is a bit underwhelming because it’s more of like songs I’ve heard by others before.  Fly to the stars is a slightly better song, but still kind of bland.  Meeeeh…

 

Konomi Suzuki – CHOIR JAIL

Track Listing

  1. CHOIR JAIL
  2. Zanzou Mirai

  4. Zanzou Mirai (Instrumental)

1. CHOIR JAIL

It’s weird getting into Komomi’s debut because it kind of mirrors Sayaka Sasaki’s debut (I’ll tell ya why at the bottom).  CHOIR JAIL is a pretty dark song and mixed with its anison roots, it’s kind of typical sounding, but there’s something about Konomi’s vocals that really stand out.  It’s not a bad debut for the winner of 2011’s Animax Anison Grand Prix.

2. Zanzou Mirai

Luckily, the B-side does more for Konomi’s vocals than what “CHOIR JAIL” did.  It’s also on the darker side of things which is a bit nice to hear since it’s kind of slower than said song as well.  I just really love Konomi’s vocals, but I feel like the song could’ve been more faster for some reason.  I think it’d been more epic that way…still not bad.

 

 

As the winner of the 2011 Animax Grand Prix, Konomi Suzuki’s debut single mirrors that of the 2009’s winner Sayaka Sasaki in which her debut, “Seisai no Ripieno” was also a dark single overall.  With CHOIR JAIL, I found Konomi’s vocals really nice and strong and suited the dark atmosphere of both tracks even though they aren’t particularly unique arrangements themselves.
