Kikkawa Yuu-Hapirapi ~Sunrise~ preview

After officially confirming that Hapirapi ~Sunrise~ is Kikka’s 2nd single a few dys ago, releasing on Spetmeber 21st, we now have a short preview of the song.

After hearing the short preview, I gotta say I’m not instantly in love with the song like I was with Kikkake wa You and it’s B-sides. The song is a lot calmer and laid back than Kikkake wa You. I was expecting another upbeat and cutesy single from Kikka. This song is pretty slow and on the bland side. I also don’t really like how Kikka is singing the song. So has an incredible voice and vocal range, but instead she seems to be forcing her self to sing in a cute voice. But it’s so unnatural that’s it’s coming off as too much and obviously fake. Kind of the same way that Koharu’s voice was forced in Papancake. Obviously not to the same screechy degree, but the way that they both were forcing themselves to sound cute is similar.

I don’t know, I’m not really feeling the song right now. Maybe it will eventually grow on me.

Kikkawa Yuu announces new song

Kikkawa Yuu announced, via her Kikka Mail, the she will be releasing a new song. The new song is entitled Hapirapi~Sunrise~, but no other details about the song are known. Not even the release date, or whether this song is an upcoming single or just a B-side track to one.

Regardless of the information being pretty vauge as of now, I’m just really excited that we’re getting new info on her music. Which means it won’t be much longer until we get another single from Kikka. Which is great news because I absolutely love Kikka and I adored Kikkake wa You. She’s only released one single and I already like her 10 times more than ManoEri. Since Kikkake wa You was released in May we probably won’t get another single until September. But I honestly don’t mind waititng a bit.
