Look at that +05 for Nijika and +03 Oda!
And Takase Mana sells out her first session. She says she's really, really happy, and so grateful to people that she can't express it in words.
all i see is poor Mao ;_;.
if only i had the opportunity.

Here's hoping that Iguchi can squeeze in one slot
@ukifune I actually just got around to watching Imaizumi on Sing! Sing! Sing!, I just have a whole new appreciation of her. She sings really well! I wonder if all the other girls also have that sort of singing skill. As much I love Techi, I don't feel like she has a powerful singing voice. Hearing how well Zuumin can sing, made me wonder about the other girls too. As I am an HKT48 fan, this is all very strange to me, because there are barely any members that can sing ok without sound editions on HKT. I guess they really handpicked the keyakizaka girls... I don't even know why akb still has a singing phase on their auditions process, since it doesn't seem to matter much if they sing well or perform well these days
I wouldn't get too carried away with praise just yet; a lot of girls in the group still really need to improve in that area:
but there are a few who are rumored to be good singers: Kobayashi, Berika, Oda Nana, Nijika (but I think I hear her in this and she doesn't sound the greatest? maybe it's someone else singing over her) Neru (but hers is something that might be up to personal taste)... I think Risa has a nice soft voice too, and I like Sugai's tone but she's not a very good live singer (as you can see in the video linked above).
I agree that that some of them really need to improve on their singing technique not that their voice is bad or anything ( in fact they're really good and refined compared to the 48 group) and if i remember well you can hear them actually singing a lot of their parts live in "Tereasa Summer Matsuri SUMMER STATION 2016" (alot of shakiness lol thats a given since dancing and singing is hard )
another raw vocals(I think so)
I enjoy a lot of their voices, but I really want singing to be right in tune (unlike mine, lol), and none of them are, as far as I can hear -- not even Zuumin, who seems to have the strongest voice. But I'm probably asking too much. They sound great processed by AutoTune (or whatever they use). I've been impressed with the fact that their singing does seem to have improved, though, and I think management is gradually letting them sing live a bit more. I'd love to get a better listen to more of their individual voices. Suzumoto has been said to have a good voice, too.
I was bowled over by the Hiraganas' unaccompanied singing in their Omotenashikai, but even they weren't really stable on the notes.
EDIT: That second video, of Kimi no Na wa Kibou, is from over a year ago, so it doesn't count as an indication of their present skill-level, which is much higher than it was then. But it's better than I remember it, except for a certain flatness of expression.
@uki indeed that's why I shared the 2 videos for comparison because of the time gap
at the same time being the only raw-ish live in front of audience vocals as a group that i know of so far.
Is there any futari saison or any other live-singing? I'm curious how they sound right now since it has been a while since the summer station too!
oh and i just watched the karaoke party lolll~that was something.. i personally won't judge their ability based on the karaoke though~~really unfair i feel haha2
@hmmero -- I'm pretty bad at being able to tell, but I thought the One-man Live Saison -- and some of the rest, such as Yuuhi 1/3 and Otona -- was live singing, even if there was backing going on, too. I only judge by the quality of the sound and some bits of dissonance, so I'm not sure.
EDIT: karaoke party I thought they were partly making fun of more normal idol groups, with their gestures, etc. But a good number of them knew the words, lol. I thought the singing was more or less okay, enjoying and parodying the style.
Their video of Toki wo Kakeru Shoujo is also good comparison to see how their singing skill improve.
@ukifune ohhh nice i actually have not got the chance to watch the one-man live yet, i will definitely check that out this weekend
@Titidus nice share, didn't know someone actually made a side-by-side comparison video even isolated the sound to right and left speakers
There are two songs on the CD that do not have MVs. I have made subbed versions of them using video from the one-man live. Sorry for the difficulty, but in order to make them as private as possible, I have left out their titles and the stream will require a short password, which is in the spoiler tag. The title is shown in the sub. Here is the first, as a sort of test of this method:
EDIT:....video rejected and deleted. Lol. so much for that. Not private enough, evidently.
Futari Saison cover by Goose House!!
^ Got goosebumps. Cool cover.
Their harmonizing is soo good. Love me some Goose House.
makes me want to hear an A capella version of Futari saison from Yuichanzu.
But the guitar part might be a little bit too hard
Why they didnt make sekai?
Goosehouse always make 48/46 cover sound so good, even some better that original lol
^they only cover popular songs
