A few days ago the new opening for the Crayon Shin-chan anime aired. And sinceWatarirouka Hashiritai7’s upcoming single, Kibou Sanmyaku, is being used as the new theme, we get to hear a preview of the song. There’s also a full radio rip of this song floating around, however I can’t find it.
I was completely not expecting this song to sound the way it does. The music is a lot heavier then what they usually release. The song and music almost has dark undertones to it. Well, about as dark as a song can sound with the sugary sweet voices of Watarirouka Hashiritai7. The song also, in an odd way, reminds me of Muten Musume’s Appare Kaiten Zushi. Just the parts where they repeat the words sa and mae.
I do have to admit, I am not in love with this song. This is hardly their best song. Quite honestly, a majority of their past A-sides have been 100 times stronger than this song. I prefer my Watarirouka Hashiritai7 to be super upbeat and cutesy. This song is just to different of a sound for my taste. AndI don’t really think it fits them at all. How do you go from Hetappi Wink to this?
