Kitahara Sayaka-Hajike-Yo preview

Recently the Inazuma Eleven Go anime started airing, giving us our first preview of Kithara Sayaka’s upcoming 3rd single, Hajike-Yo.

I love to poke fun at Sayaka a lot on this blog, because I’m not a huge fan of hers. And because her singles have never really left a deep inpression with me. But color me surprised, but I actually really like this song. I’m not even sure why. The music sounds just like 100 other anime ending themes. But there’s just something about this song I find so appealing. The song just has this really fun and cute feel to it. And Sayaka’s voice works really perfectly for this type of song. The odd tone in her voice blends beautifully with the music. And there are some parts of the song where her voice sound great and even adorable. The song might be mediocre at best, but it’s the first song by Sayaka I’ve actually really liked.

Kitahara Sayaka announces new single

It was recently announced that Kitahara Sayaka will be releasing her 3rd single. The single is entitled Hajike-Yo and will be released on February 8th. The song will also be used as the ending theme for the Inazuma Eleven Go anime, as well as being the theme for the Inazuma Eleven 3DS game.

Speaking about things I’m not excited for. I do admit that Sayaka’s songs are a tiny biy catchy and her last PV was actually really beautiful. I just can’t seem to get excited for her music. Perhaps I will be when she learns how to sing and starts releasing better music. Until then I’ll continue to sit here hoping for the best while expecting the worst. I think at best we’ll get a fun PV. Which makes no sense because Berryz Koubou’s Inazuma Eleven singles were amazing.

Kitahara Sayaka 2nd single preview

It was announced recently that Kithara Sayaka will be releasing her 2nd solo single. The single is titled Kanari Junjou and is being released on November 9th. The song is currently being used as the ending theme to the anime Inazuma Eleven, just like her first solo single, Yappa Seishun, was.

I can’t really say that I’m excited by the fact that Sayaka is releasing another single. Her voice isn’t really the most pleasant idol voice out there.
The song itself sounds a lot like Yappa Seishun. Listen to Kanari Junjou and Yappa Seishun back to back, and you’ll see that they have nearly identical instrumentals. And because of that I’m impressed with this song about just as much as I was with Yappa Seishun, which wasn’t a whole lot. I probably like this song less that Yappa Seisun. During the chorus you can really hear the screechyness in her voice. In the verse she doesn’t sound that bad. It’s just went she forces her voice to sing in a higher range than she’s capabale of, that her voice is nearly unbearable.

Kitahara Sayaka – Kanari Junjou [Regular Edition]

1 2 Tan Tan Taan

I didn’t expect the video to be out so soon perhaps I should stop making entire posts for just previews.

I never realized how good the Eggs actually are. I usually just focus on Koharu, mostly because she dominated Anataboshi. But they sound really amazing in this song. Especially Yuu, she sounds incredible. After listening to the song like 6 times I actually really like it. Even though it’s slow paced it’s still a really cute song. And I find myself singing the “ichi ni tan tan taan san shi tan tan taan” parts.

The video is very cute and colorful. It matches their new outfits perfectly. The video itself is pretty simple but it’s so adorable. I love it. And it’s nice to see focus on all the members. The dance is lacking a bit for my taste. The Anataboshi dance was amazing and fit with the song so well. This dance just kind of lacks imagination.

I really love Milky Way, but I wonder just how much longer are they going to last. I’m sure Kirarin Revolution is going to last for a while and Koharu will have more singles. But as for Milky Way won’t it be time to hang up the tambourines soon? Kira☆Pika only lasted one single, so it’s surprising to see Milky Way have two. Eventually new characters will come on the show and new Kirarin Revolution groups will form. Hopefully this single will sell well and we’ll be able to have another single or two by Milky Way.

But anyway enjoy the video.

Tan Tan Taan preview

There was a preview for Milky Way’s 2nd single Tan Tan Taan in Kirarin this week’s Revolution episode.

The song is a little slower than Anataboshi. But everyone’s voices sound amazing. And it still sounds adorable. I will probably like the song more when the PV comes out and I hear it a few more times. Like I usually do.

Milky Way single number 2!

So this is old news due to my delayed reaction about it. I completely forgot to post this. But c’est la vie.

Anyway, Milky Way’s 2nd single Tan Tan Taan, will be released on October 29. So pictures of their new outfits have been released. Which I’m sure most of you have seen already. >_>

I actually like the outfits, from the waist down anyway. I think the skirts and shoes are absolutely adorable. But the tops don’t really even match the skirts at all. And the sleeves/armbands are too bulky. They really weight the top part town. And the bows like out of place. Like they just stuck them there cause they needed to put them somewhere.

I feel slightly bad about voicing my opinion on the outfits because they were designed by kids. But they are defiantly kid friendly and semi cute. I still like the Anataboshi costumes better but that’s ok.

I really LOVE Koharu’s hair. It looks about 50 times cuter just by adding the waves! But couldn’t they done something to Yuu and Sayaka’s hair. I understand Koha’s the star and has always had her hair like that in Kirarin Revolution videos. But come one, at least Sayka’s has a little bit of a style to it Yuu has nothing.

Is it strange I keep talking about hair in my blogs? I guess it’s because the hair is almost as important as the outfit itself.
