Review: SKE48 1st Sub Unit Love Crescendo Debut Single

pc

SKE48 1st Sub Unit Love Crescendo released their very first debut single on 25 November 2015. News of Love Crescendo debut was first announced in SKE48 7th Anniversary. 7 Members were selected from SKE48 Team S to KKS and they are:

  • Team S: Kitagawa Ryoha, Matsui Jurina
  • Team KII: Ego Yuna
  • Team E: Kumazaki Haruka
  • KKS: Obata Yuna, Goto Rara, Sugawara Maya

It Seems like Goto Rara is the next SKE prominent senbatsu candidates with all the exposure since Mae no Meri. Young and Fresh. Looks good 😀 This single actually look more like a SKE48 Single to me instead of a brand new sub unit. Look at the tracklist, almost all of SKE senbatsu are involved in this single. Shouldn’t sub unit be like No3b? which just concentrate on that few members only? Oh well and this single contains SKE Request Hour voting tickets. The review starts here:

Type A
cover1coverA

Koppu no Naka no Komorebi – Love Crescendo
CTDBIIWVAAAkdIb

  • Very SKE style of A side. Expected that Jurina will take the center spot of this sub unit. This song caught my attention and it has been one of the tracklist that i have been listening since it’s release. Very cheerful song. I actually loved the PV more with the shooting angle and the elf theme for the pv.

Ano saki no Mirai Made – Caramel Cats
CTDBISnUcAAj5l1

Another group of unit name Caramel Cats with the 5 selected members, i am surprised they select Souda Sarina as the center of this unit. Cool.
Team S: Futamura Haruka
Team KII: Oba Mina, Souda Sarina
Team E: Kimoto Kanon, Sato Sumire

  • What a cute pv. With Sarina san doing the first verse, something new out there :D. A quick pace type of song. One of the awesome song in this single :D.

Otanoshimi wa ashita kara – Aichi Toyota Senbatsu
Team S: Azuma Rion, Kitagawa Ryoha, Matsui Jurina, Miyazawa Sae
Team KII: Takayanagi Akane, Furuhata Nao
Team E: Kimoto Kanon, Sato Sumire, Shibata Aya, Suda Akari, Tani Marika
Kenkyuusei: Goto Rara

  • This definitely fit into SKE48 Coupling song. A very cheerful song and this members lineup is the normal SKE48 Senbatsu. I actually wished for a PV for this. I am sure it will look fun if there is a PV for this.

Type B
cover2coverB

Datte, Ame Janai? – Transit Girls
CTDBIcTUwAEJw0V

Team S: Oya Masana, Miyazawa Sae
Team KII: Takayanagi Akane
Team E: Umemoto Madoka, Shibata Aya, Suda Akari

  • Once again, when i watched the pv, no matter how i watch the pv is like a psychology pv? Is like rescuing a person from depression? This song compared to the rest, this is consider one of the more plain song which doesn’t really capture the listener interest?

Type C
cover3coverT

Aishiteru to ka, Aishiteta to ka  – Furumarion
CTDBJGzUYAARdoz

  • What should i say? the 2nd best song of this single? or the best quality song of this single? 😀 Hear it yourself 😀

Theatre
coverC
Heimin Shutsuba Sengen – Death Stock Diamond

Team S: Yamauchi Suzuran
Team KII: Matsumura Kaori
Team E: Saito Makiko, Tani Marika

  • This song is like an anime insert song? Really not my type…..

Overall Tracking Ranking:

  1. Koppu no Naka no Komorebi
  2. Aishiteru to ka, Aishiteta to ka
  3. Otanoshimi wa ashita kara
  4. Ano saki no Mirai Made
  5. Datte, Ame Janai?
  6. Heimin Shutsuba Sengen

Congrats in grabbing the 2nd spot in Oricon Weekly Album Chart with a sales of 181,240 copies:

NMB48 13th Single [Must Be Now!] Review

Starting from today, i will do a review of every AKB48 group related Single / Album release. Apparently this time round it was the released of NMB48 13th Single.

COiwXEAUsAA_A-V

 

It was the first time that NMB48 came up with a 9 members senbatsu members which AKB48 (Yuuhi wo miteiru ka? – 10 members) and SKE48 (Gomen ne, SUMMER – 7 members) had done it in the past. This single is definitely a come back for Sayanee (Yamamoto Sayaka). The entire song is mostly focusing on Sayanee vocal and dance. It had also been awhile since she last Center a NMB48 Single Senbatsu. The last time she centered was Takane no Ringo.

img_cd13th_b_a01-horz-vert-horz

Oh well.. Lets start the review for the track list for the Single.

01. Must Be Now!

When i 1st knew about this song, it wasn’t really my type of song. It’s kinda K-pop-ish. But after listening to it a few times, the song become very catchy and addictive. Upon watching the PV, i feel sad for the rest of the members as the screentime was not distributed equally despite it is a 9 members senbatsu. Oh well, everyone knew that this is a “solo” Sayanee song.

02. Kataomoi yori mo omoide wo

This song is definitely the Undergirls type of song. It sound kinda dreamy dreamy and smooth. I am surprised that the management selected Yabushita Shu as the center even though they are crazily pushing Mirurun (Shiroma Miru).

03. Yume ni iro ga nai riyuu (Team N)

It has been awhile since Team N had such genre song. I am actually expecting the song to be like Inouchi no Heso from the previous Single. I guess there are time where you need to switch from genre to genre.

04. Good-Bye, Guitar (Team M)

Apparently, Team M are staying this kind of Retro genre for 2 single already. Previously it was a cowboy type of genre pv while this time round is retro of song. Retro genre is really not my type. The costume design is somehow similar to “Baby baby baby” by AKB48.

05. Kufuku de renai wo suru na (Team BII)

The song sound sexy and addictive. I love the rhythm of the song. Unfortunately, i was kind of turned off by the PV. It is like a group dating pv. If i  am going to rank the songs for Team BII, this will be one of the nicer New Team BII song so far. I am still in love with Kokoro no Myoji wo Kake! in the previous single!!

06. Orera to wa

I have not get the chance to listen to this song as i didn’t managed to find the song anywhere. Overall.. My Rating for this single is…….. 3 / 5. If it is not for Senbatsu and undergirls song, i would have rank it even lower.

Songs Ranking:

1st: Must Be Now
2nd: Kataomoi yori mo omoide wo
3rd: Yume ni iro ga nai riyuu
4th: Kufuku de renai wo suru na
5th: Good-Bye, Guitar
Unknown: Orera to wa

Anyway, Congrats to NMB48 for getting 1st in oricon weekly chart with a sales of 307,036.
