I listened to the rip, something was off about the song. It sounded familiar and after confirming with a friend the only conclusion is that Tsunku and his posse leached from Berryz Koubo's Dakishimete Dakishimete.

Even though a lot of people don't find the song special, I like it more than most of their last songs. I'm glad Maria is center and I hope she does a great job, but I still hope for another Nonaka (co-)lead song. Also I'm quite excited for the other songs and the MV's.

LOL it does have a resemblance (in the chorus) to Daki Daki. but not exactly... IT's weird, but the bass is too strong in this preview so it's hard to really hear the song too well.

I am the last person who should be saying this, I know, but, shouldn't the first title be romanized as Sou Ja Nai?

^You could go either way I guess, but personally since I say 'janai' together like it's a word and I'd never pause between 'ja' and 'nai' to take a breath or separate the two parts onto two different lines if it was at the end of a page, 'janai' makes more sense to me. Japanese doesn't have spaces though, so *shrugs*.

As for the song itself, it's not bad, but I'm at the point that I need something more than just 'not bad' from Morning Musume. I need their songs to be at the same level as the other groups right now. The fact that I have to even think that saddens me. I like the end though, when they let the girls off the leash. I want to guess from the LQ concert rip that it's Masaki and then Sakura? But honestly if it's the other girls I'd be pretty happy because it means that they're starting to be able to put a lot of oomph into their singing. With Riho gone, Masaki is the only one I feel does that really well (with Mizuki and Sakura getting it from time to time)

if you listen to the MM concert rip (the one I just uploaded), you can hear a better recording of Sou Janai, Maa-chan goes for the high note at the end. Maria sings the last lines.

The Japanese writing system doesn't typically need spaces because particles and clitics written as kana serve in most cases as adequate semantic boundaries between kanji word units. Therefore romanizing そうじゃない which has no actual spaces as so "Sou Ja Nai" or "Sou Janai" or "Soujanai" is totally up to the romanizer -- they're completely equivalent.

Sou Janai reminds me a little of Inshoha Renoir no Yoni - Elegies.

No, the bass lines sound similar, that is all.

In regards to the Sou Janai group pic, Maachan really should go to the toilet if she feels the need to poop. But, that's Maachan for ya.
