Ambivalent on Music Station next week
Ongaku Shitsu ni Kataomoi
Unit should be called Team Autotune. It's a pleasant song but much like everything else on this single so far I don't find it very engaging.
Maybe autotuned, but I like this song better than their previous one on just the first listen. It is a light, airy song, 180 degrees from Ambivalent and Student Dance. You can clearly hear Koike's heavenly thin, crisp voice. Just like Paruru's and Riripon's voice, I can listen to Koike's voice for hours.
I feel engaged, lol. And the MV is yet to come.
"Team Autotune" is a perfect description, but personally I find some of the sounds produced by Neru+Autotune on Mata Atte Kudasai to be among the most beautiful sounds on any Keyaki recording. When Neru is involved, Autotune has to be turned way up, but from hearing idols sing live and then recorded, it seems that Autotune is probably used on almost every idol recording, even for the better singers. It was a bit of a shock to hear the Yuichans wavering off-tune live at TIF last year, in their a capella part.
I.... liked it
It won't become my favorite song, but.. the chorus start is quite nice.
I'm still not a fan of their voices thought, but that's just matter of taste.
As if there were any doubt, it has been announced that K46 will perform Ambivalent on Music Station next Friday.
EDIT: This matome report shows Techi's cartwheel in the Rock in Japan performance, with screencaps and a video of how to assist a cartwheel. Neru is there as Techi starts to go, putting her hands either side of Techi's waist and following her through the cartwheel. Sugai is on the other side to catch her is there's any problem. Two very reliable members in place.
Actually, Techi seems to do it a bit differently from the norm: she seems to grab Neru's right knee (or both knees?) with both hands and cartwheel over that, with Neru's hands on her waist helping move her through it. In the first three caps below, you can see Neru move out front to be in position just a fraction of a second before Techi gets to her. (click to enlarge):
Yes, you said it
This single is really shaping to be underwhelming. The only song I find passable is Hiragana's.
Has the Zuumin solo come out already?
Sakamichi series summer singles sort of suck this season. Both Nogi's Jikochu and Kanji Keyaki's could've been better IMO. That's for the entire single and not just the title song.
The video of Unrequited Love in the Music Room is out. As soon as it started, a smile rose to my lips, and it stayed there the whole time. In fact, it's still there.
Official site version, visible only from Japan. Sorry, that's all I have.
EDIT: Until someone comes up with an internationally visible version, here are some screencaps/offshots:
Tnx, i love to watch this
the MV is beautiful. But i don't like the song, im not a fan of loli songs/concept.
So zuumin's song left. Want to predict the sales?
it wasn't trendy for general idol fans to hate on kanji or techi back then because they werent popular with a less traditional image yet.

The MV is nice, song is good too.
i doubt cute unit will get another song next single, so i wont complain.
The PV is nice to watch mute.
Neru's voice is just so grating I can't.
Yeah I think she has the worst vocal out of all 46 girls. I like her but girl just can't carry a note. This is also why I never enjoy her solo or any of her unit songs... at least in Keya, her lines are shared with other girls, no long solo lines.
Watching this MV somehow made me feel like I'm not watching Keyakizaka.
I love this song. I love this unit. Best song of the single! Neru!!

Up to Futari Saison, there wasn't general idol fans nor non-general idol fans or such classification to begin with.
