NMB48 was featured on a morning show recently to promote their debut sing, Zetsumetsu Kurokami Shoujo. And during their breif segment they previewed about a minute of the song. Which is the first time fans get to hear it.
I have to say the song is completely different than the type of song I was expecting. I was expecting something similar to enka. But this song isn’t even remotely close to enka. Which is actually a relief. The song itself is extremely laid back. The song has a very soft and soothing feel to it. Which makes it very pleasant to listen to, but doesn’t really work as a debut song. You’d figure that since this is their debut single, that they would have a very elaborate song to draw attention and new fans to them. SKE48’s and SDN48’s debut singles both were attention grabbing. Tsuyokimono yo with it’s heavy anime sounding instrumental, and GAGAGA with it’s unique club sounding music. But I think ABK48 did the same thing. I always thought Aitakatta would have made a better first single, and for a while I actually thought it was their first single.
Back when I was a bigger AKB48 noob then I am now. XD
After a couple listens I am starting to find the song enjoyable and likeable, but I still think it’s pretty lack luster for a debut single. Perhaps NMB48 will win me over with the PV.
As always, you can but this single from CDJapan by clicking the links below.
