Morning Musume-Renai Hunter preview

A short radio rip of Morning Musume’s upcoming single, and Risa’s graduation single, Renai Hunter has been released.

Well this is certianly something that I would have never expected to come together, Morning Musume and dubstep. And I gotta say that it is throwing me off a bit because I don’t get the appeal of dubstep at all. But luckily the dubstep only lasts for a little bit in the beginning of the song. And most likely during the instrumental break, but since this isn’t the full song I honestly have no idea. After the dubstep ends the music does transform into some awesome dance music along the lines of what Morning Musume has released before. The musics reminds me of a toned down version of C-ute’s Kiss me Aishiteru mixed with Momusu’s Aishite Aishite Ato Ippun. And I really do like the music, it’s danceable and more importantly it’s powerful. It really is the perfect type of song for Risa to graduate with. It’s the type of song that really showcases her powerful and deep voice. I also don’t really mind that Reina is co-leading the song with Risa since she did the same thing with Ai in her graduation single. And I’m pretty much prepared to be bombarded with even more Reina from now on since when Risa leaves Reina will become the best singer in the entire group. I do wish we heard a bit more from the other members, but this is Risa’s song so I get why we don’t.

This song is a nice throwback to Morning Musume’s “Emo Musume” era, and it is nice to hear this type of song again since I became a fan of Momusu just a few singles before that era. But now that we’ve had the throwback singles for the 5th gen, and everyone with a mature image is graduating, they really need to hang up this sound for a while. After this Reina will be the member with the most mature image. Actually I think they are going to give Haruna a cool and fashionable, maybe even slightly sexy, image. But it’s still to early to really tell. Especially since Sayumi told her she should try for a funny or air head character. I know I sound like a broken record over here, but I want super ubeat energetic Morning Musume back! And I won’t be happy until I do. I’ve been waiting 5 years here, I think it’s time.

  1. This song is very good, but I’m hoping for something along the lines of Go Girl Koi no Victory for their next few singles. They performed that song in concert recently, and I liked how it sounded.

    What I DON’T want is Reina-Riho-RoboSayu getting all the lines.

    1. I completely second that. Go Girl ~Koi no Victory~ is one of my favorite Momusu singles of all time. I really would love something that upbeat again. Even something along the lines of Maji Desu ka Ska would be good.

      Sadly it kinda seems like that’s what’s going to happen. I don’t want that either. And it looks like Ayumi is going to be the pushed girl of the 10th gen since she got the most lines of the 10th gen in Kanashiki Koi no Melody. So, you probably have to add her to the equation. Also, sorry for the super late reply.

        1. I’ve already talked to Ray and the domain is going to continue to stay up just like all of his other domains. I guess it’s just going to still exist even though it’s not updated, or something like that. I’m terrible with computers and not really sure how that works. But Ray has assured me that I don’t have to worry about my blog. If the domain ever did shut down completely he already said I could switch over to the new domain if I wanted to, so my blog will always be up. :] Thanks for your concern though. I actually thought that IW shutting down would mean my blog was going to be shut down too. XD Lol.
