    Yea, the talking parts do disturb the flow of the song. I like the song a lot tho~ I'll get over the talking parts in time, but it's actually really nice. It definitely has a summer-y feel to it as well~

    Assuming the five members who got lines are the front row (and the order they get their lines)

    Senbatsu should look like this (front row on top)
    Miyu - Neru - Yurina - Zumin - Yukka
    Mona - Akanen - Pe-chan - Risha - Yuipon - Habuchama (rest of the front row from the drama poster)
    Everyone else (hopefully no drops yet)

    No no no no, I want girls to be drooped and tears to be shed.

    That's the whole point!!

    I'm biased, but I love it. The reciting works perfectly for me, great rhythms in both speaking and singing, and in the way they work together. I can't guarantee success in the market, but it succeeds for me -- getting even better the more times I hear it -- and I have on repeat, lol. I like the little kyun feeling in my chest, lol. Even the ordinary bits (the ones a post on 2channel called "AKB-like") work in context. But my listening skills in Japanese aren't good enough to really get the words. Now I'm really looking forward to (a) a transcription of the lyrics, and (b) the dance performance.

    Comments from 2channel:
    -- hard to sing at karaoke
    -- embarrassing words to sing at karaoke
    -- great to dance to
    -- just a normal Nogizaka46 song
    -- before it played, a poster posted two lines for copy/paste: "godly song arrives!" and "shitty song arrives!" Both got used.
    -- refreshing sound
    -- so good it hurts -- but I still like SaiMajo better
    -- I like it better the more I hear it
    -- good guitar

    2channel often annoys me by being quite conventional in its taste, so that something a bit unusual has to be bad for many posters there -- be it a song, an anime, a style of beauty, a costume...whatever. How was the first hearing of Silent Majority received? I wasn't reading 2channel just then. But over the three threads of reaction we have now reached (at around 400 posts an hour) the reaction is trending toward positive.

    2channel listeners identify Techi, Neru, Zuumin, Suzumoto and Sugai as the ones doing the speaking. Is this a new front? The only way they could ever drop Berika is if someone else important fell out, too, and popular favorites came in -- even if the not-so-favorite Suzumoto (the best dancer) stayed.

    EDIT: Tears shed? No, no, no! Happy voices raised in song. Tears next time, as winter approaches....

    Lovely song. The hook is stuck in my head after one listen. It's similar to Nogi in just the right way, has an experimental element too. I actually like the talking parts, I think they'll tie into the PV and I'm just anticipating a really nice PV with #aesthetics.

    I'm not into Sakamichi on an idol level but DAMN on a musical level they always deliver

    Did I the only one to have lukewarm feeling toward the free speech part?
    Sure the piano here is godly, and it will be hard to sing this live later. But, I can imagine seeing myself looking at the blue sky and scream,

    KEYAKI SLAYYYY!!!!

    Edit: Ohhh the drop. I don't know, It's inevitable. It will happen. I'll just sad a bit and hoping that Nanako will forever stay senbatsu. Kinda.

    Total agreement -- except that I find myself into this group on an idol level, deeply. But it was Nogi's music that got me into Sakamichi, and SaiMajo that sealed the deal.

    @EinhanderX -- Lots of posts on 2channel did not like the talking part at all. But I did.

    Keyakizaka46 - Sekai ni wa Ai shika nai

    Translation of lyrics (mostly using transcription from Japanese fans so may not be accurate. I checked around for any corrections so it's probably mostly accurate)

    English
    When I dashed up the bridge, the blue summer sky was right there in front of me
    Even though I knew I could never reach it, I stood on my tiptoes and stretched my hands as far as I could
    If you stand still staring forever, you’ll never be able to do anything

    The feelings I hold for you in this heart, are growing impatient
    The snow white cumulonimbus clouds crept up quietly, from somewhere the cicadas all together began to cry. It seemed like the sun wavered for a moment.
    This world which seems so chaotic, is powered by one simple emotion.

    When did I start keeping secrets?
    Adults have too many lies, they can’t remember any more.
    The wind that passes through… is speaking to me
    It won’t be long before an evening shower falls.

    This world has nothing but love (that is all that I believe)
    Right now I’m going to go looking for you
    Even if someone tries to stop me (You can’t take away this courage)
    This is (this is) my (my)
    Identity

    Even though the sky was still bright it suddenly started raining
    I became dripping wet as I ran through the town.
    Sudden showers and unpredictable futures. I don’t hate either.

    When I was the last time I resisted adults?
    Was is that day I was compelled to give up?
    On top of the asphalt, the rain is talking back
    Even if I don’t have an umbrella, some days I just want to run.

    The future has nothing but love (the sky is finally clearing up)
    Sadness is just an unreliable weather forecast
    If tears had colours (people would become more kind)
    That is (that is) my (my)
    Reality

    The moment I met you, as if I had regained something
    Our sky was decorated with a rainbow
    This world has nothing but love (that is all that I believe)
    Right now I’m going to go looking for you
    Even if someone tries to stop me (You can’t take away this courage)
    This is (this is) my (my)
    Identity

    Because I ran with all my might, I’m still gasping for breath
    Being honest with my emotions is so refreshing
    I believe it, this world has nothing but love.

    歩道橋を駆け上がると 夏の青い空がすぐそこにあった
    絶対届かないってわかっているはずなのに 僕はつま先で立って 思い切り手を伸ばした

    ただじっと眺め続けるなんて できやしない
    この胸に溢れる君への想いが もどかしい

    真っ白な入道雲が もくもくと近づいて どこかでセミたちが 一斉に泣いた 太陽が一瞬 怯んだ気がした
    複雑に見えるこの世界は 単純な感情で動いている

    最初に秘密を持ったのは いつだろう?
    大人はみんなその場を過ぎて忘れている
    通り抜ける風は 僕に語りかける
    もう少ししたら 夕立が来る

    世界には愛しかない(信じるのはそれだけだ)
    今すぐ僕は 君を探しに行こう
    誰に反対されても(僕の勇気は変えられない)
    それが(それが)僕の(僕の)
    アイデンティティー

    空はまだ明るいのに 突然雨が降ってきた
    僕はずぶ濡れになりながら 町を走った
    夕立も 予測できない未来も 嫌いじゃない

    最後に大人に逆らったのは いつだろう
    諦めること強要されたあの日 だったか
    アスファルトの上で 雨が口答えしてる
    傘が無くたって 走りたい日もある

    未来には愛しかない(空はやがて晴れるんだ)
    悲しみなんてその時の空模様
    涙に色があったら(人はもっと優しくなる)
    それが(それが)僕の(僕の)
    リアリティー

    君に会った瞬間 何か取り戻したように
    僕らの上空に 虹がかかった

    世界には愛しかない(信じるのはそれだけだ)
    今すぐ僕は 君を探しに行こう
    誰に反対されても(僕の勇気は変えられない)
    それが(それが)僕の(僕の)
    アイデンティティー

    全力で走ったせいで 息がまだ弾んでた
    自分の気持ちに正直になるって 清々しい
    僕は信じてる 世界には愛しかないんだ

    I thought Hirate was promoting while the song playing in the background but nope it is part of the song haha. I am still grasping the recite parts but the chorus is really catchy.

    The chorus is so beautiful, and I love the meaning of the lyrics, but I don't know about the talking parts. I'm still unsure about whether I like them or not. This is a HUGE risk Akimoto and co. are taking, but I'm glad to see them experimenting. Weird @ that Berika drop. I thought she was super popular? I don't particularly like her, but it's weird anyway.

    I don't like the talking part, it will be much better without it. Overall I'm still unsure about the song, it's pretty nice but I got the feeling it's a kind of song which will wear down sooner like Harujion. I hope I'm wrong though. SaiMajo hooked me since the first listen. This doesn't have similar effect.

    This is a good song, but as expected it didn't hook me at first listen like SaiMajo. But that's understandable, its almost impossible to repeat something that good the next single.

    it does sound like a nogi song, but we can't really expect that not to happen. not as good as silent majority but it's still good, i'm glad it's not SM2.0

    I still wonder why they put it on air so soon. Before Nogi's song, which is released two weeks before theirs. Two-plus weeks before even the drama, and a month and a half before the CD release. Did they think people would need time to get used to the talking part? Is there something going on behind the scenes? On 2channel some people who didn't love the song thought the coupling songs might be something special.

    We pretty well know that the first spoken part is Techi; the second is two lines of Neru and one of Zuumin; and the third is two lines of Miyu-chan and one of Yukka (like some Japanese posters, I love Yukka's part). Then Techi again at the end (I can't hear that, but Japanese posters seem to take it for granted.)

    I'm happy Miyu-chan got some spoken lines, and seems to have stayed in the front, but I'd like to hear her singing voice clearly. In a coupling song?

    By the way, I just read that the radio show's server crashed immediately after the show. Lol.

    if that true, so we have few management push member: Miyu, Akanen, and Habu. I love all of them, so no complain. But it's better for them to improve their HS result, because from 1st round their HS not really promising.

    surprise about Akanen, she was called 'fisher' and often appear in magazine but not translate well in sales. Her HS result below from my expectation.

    What about the possibility of a seven-member front? So Yui-pon and Berika are still there (or Mona-Risa). And the whole formation is 7-6-8. Could that happen?
