8 May Weekly J-pop “Review” but my crippling sadness took over

And that is why I’m ridiculously late in publishing this but I always say mental health first when it comes to blogging, making videos, or any sort of content creation. Plus, why would I want to write when I’m a blubbering depressive mess? No one really enjoys reading that sort of stuff. Anyways, I hope that you still find this week’s lineup of songs to be enjoyable.

初音ミク (Hatsune Miku) -シネマ

This is a YOASOBI production using Hatsune Miku it seems and it honestly doesn’t sound so bad. Give it a shot.

=LOVE 齊藤なぎさ(なーたん)- 現役アイドルちゅ〜

=LOVE have two more songs that I guarantee you will sound similar so if you’re into the typical girl group J-pop kawaii uwu sound then skip ahead.

=LOVE(イコールラブ) – セノビーインラブ

Yup, I wasn’t wrong but there is quite a bit of English dropped in this one.

=LOVE 野口衣織 (Noguchi Iori) – 拝啓 貴方様

This is from just one of the =LOVE’s girls and I must say, this song does carry a more mature (velvety?) tone to it that differentiates it from the previous two songs enough to keep me interested. So yes, this one is different and you may want to listen to it.

日向坂46 (Hinatazaka46) -『声の足跡』

A pretty chill song if not a bit boring.

HKT48 -「君とどこかへ行きたい」

This one is pretty much the same.

FAKY – HappyEverAfter

Okay, but not feeling it at the moment.

4s4ki – FAIRYTALE feat. Zheani 

Jesus, both the music video and the song was taxing on my ears and eyes (eyes I especially didn’t appreciate since my eyes are already damaged enough thank you). Yeah, no thank you.

ネクライトーキーMV「気になっていく」/ NECRY TALKIE – Kininatteiku

I actually really liked this song and would also give it a shot especially if you’re feeling down like I am, it may boost some endorphins with the feel good vibes it gives despite the lyrics being actually a bit opposite of that.

WurtS – 分かってないよ

This song isn’t half bad either and would also recommend a taste of this if you wanna.


The “First Take” Section

EXILE TAKAHIROxHarami-chan – Motto Tsuyoku 

A pretty classic Japanese ballad song. Not much else to say besides it’s sounds nice.

HENTAI SHINSHI CLUB – YOKAZE

Must say, appearances were deceiving because I thought this was gonna be some straight up rap/hip-hop sorta song but it’s more RnB though the rap is still there but it’s a pretty chill song overall which…I kinda appreciate. Also, the guy on the left saying “vroom vroom” in a “I’m so into this” way every time the other guy mentions the word “highway” is golden.

adieu – aitte 

This song is similar to the first song in this section. It’s alright…sorta.


吐息. – ありふれて花束 feat.菅原圭

Not a bad song either. It reminds me of Ado’s songs so if you like Ado, you’ll probably like this.

milet「checkmate」

It’s okay.

DISH// 『No.1』

Pretty average.

Hakubi – 道化師にはなれない

About the same as the last one.

anewhite「切言」

A pretty chill song but not much exceptional is going on here to make it stand out too much.

あいみょん – 愛を知るまでは

Eh, not feeling this one.

宮田 俊哉 (Toshiya Miyata) (Kis-My-Ft2) feat. 一ノ瀬トキヤ (ST☆RISH) / 「Nemophila」

Really, the only thing I could think of watching this was how weird his group’s name is…”Kiss my feet too?”

神様、僕は気づいてしまった – 僕たちの

Don’t got much to say here honestly…


Yay~ I finally did it. This week was tougher than most due to my mood, of course, so this was an accomplishment. I’m not even going to jinx it, so the next “weekly” J-pop “review” will come out when I get around to it. Bye for now~
