It was just announced that Dream Morning Musume will be releasing their first original single. The single is titled Shining Butterfly and will be released on February 15th. This also marks the group’s 3rd original song. Or 4th if you count Afternoon Coffee, which is technically Afternoon Musume’s song because it existed before Dream Morning Musume did. Or even 5th if you count their version of Joshi Kashimashi Monogatari.
You know this seems to be a pretty unpopular opinion but I fully love Dream Morning Musume. Say what you want about it being a step backwards in their career, but I could care less honestly. I just love that I get to see my favorite OG members back in action together. And I pretty excited because I think Atto Odoroku Mirai ga Yattekuru is an amazing song. Throw another song like that my way and I would be happy.
The only thing I’m worried about is line distribution. Distribution was pretty fair in the album, but albums are always a lot more fair than A-sides. And while nearly every member of Dream Morning Musume were the top members during their stint in Morning Musume, obviously there are members who are more popular then the others. And because of that I’m afraid my favorite members are going to be shoved in the back. And on Koharu’s part it’s probably going to be because of senority then anything else. But Kaori and Kei-chan aren’t exactly super popular, at least not compared to the likes of Yuko or Nacchi. It will break my heart if they are shoved in the back.
