The full radio rip for Kisumai’s My Resistance Tashikana Mono off their upcoming double A-side new single, My Resistance Tashikana Mono / Unmei Girl, was just released. My Resistance will be used as the theme for Tamamori Yuta’s new drama Nobunaga no Chef.
When the song first started I knew I wasn’t going to like it very much. And, honestly, I’m still on the fence about the song. The song starts off with very soft piano music and accompanied with equally sad background music. The entire song sounds very emotional and sad. It’s times like this I wish I understood Japanese.
What I do find odd about this song is that Taisuke seems to be rapping through most of it. Not only does it not really fit with the sad music, you’d figure there would be a much bigger Yuta part in the song since it’s for his drama. I mean a good chunk of the song is Yuta. I mean, come on this is unfair Kisumai of course he’s prominent in the song. I was just expecting Yuta to sing 3/4 of the song.
Midway through the song the whole tempo and feel changes. Which is why I can’t really decide exactly how I feel about the song yet. The music becomes very upbeat and it sounds like the message changes from sad to positive, and maybe even inspiring. I don’t know, I feel like I really have to wait for a translation because this seems like one of those songs that will have great lyrics.
Anyway here’s the preview. My Resistance Tashikana Mono / Unmei Girl will be released on February 13th.
