The lyrics for Seidenki are soooo cute. I'm really loving the choreo, too.
The horns in Singing make me think of the music in Pokémon games. It's a nice song, and they all look great in the video. :thumbs-up:

I find the timing of when the singing starts in the song interesting. It feels like Airi starts singing (half?) a beat sooner than what I would expect, and I still do. I'm not sure if there's a reason as to why it seems like that and/or if it's an actual stylistic thing done in music where it has a technical term I've never heard of lol It trips me up quite a bit when I'm trying to sing along because I actually have to mentally count the beat in my head after hearing that elongated piano key note to time the "Sa" in "Sayonara" correctly rather than just having a feel for the timing.

Also, Mai's "Shinario/Scenario" sounds like "shinanimo" to me and it's a bit awkward xD

Regardless, this song is fantastic, and it seems like almost everyone (including me) has had it/still has it on replay.

I don't think it started early, it's just that there isn't a real tempo up until that point, so it's hard to distinguish when exactly it's REALLY supposed to begin, so it must feel like it kicks in a bit early. Your brain's just taking what it thinks was a tempo at the very end of that measure, and uses it. That's my theory, anyway. xD
Watch it be totally wrong, but it makes sense to me.


--
Am I the only one that thinks that the chorus to Mugen Climax is a bit fast? I mean it's an amazing song, but I wish the chorus was, idk... slowed down, or something. :O Something about it feels.. .fast?

I was kinda thinking the same, because it feels like the tempo slows down but then bam the singing starts "right away" for me.

When you say fast, do you mean it goes by too fast, as in, the chorus is too short, or do you actually mean fast as in it seems like the tempo is faster than the rest of the song? If the former, then I agree, it definitely is shorter than other choruses, but I wouldn't really go as to say it's too short to the point where I'd think there should be more to it. If it's the latter, then I don't think it's going at faster tempo.

It's not a faster tempo, it's just... sung too fast, idk. Like, it just seems to go by and come too fast, and the words/melody is just... very fast. I mean, the rest of the song is too, but the chorus just feels a bit... idk it's so hard to explain, yet the song is so good.

so that's like their usual first day sales? damn :o
its such a shame that the oricon rule changed because we have no idea how much the real sales are considering its their last and just curious as to what the impact could've been with so much promo.

I'm really glad that UF is still supporting these girls for their last hurdle until disbandment.

I really love this single. I'm going to miss them a lot.

It's always a bit bitter sweet when it seems that all the promotion is working for a group that is about to disband.
