Japanese title: 微炭酸/ ポツリと / Good bye & Good luck!
Announced on today's The Girls Live.

Already in H!P's listings.

 

Clip of announcement on twitter.

 

Considering Nanami's graduation is planned for March this should be her last single - also fits the title of the third song. 

Come to think of it, it is the first Juice=Juice graduation since Aina just left..

I hope GB&GL is a Nanami center.

MAH GIRL DANBARA BACK AT IT AGAIN. So excited for a new single from them... Curious how this whole Manaka-thing will be

I hope GB&GL is a Nanami center.

I'll actually fight the producers if it's not.

 

But the title is quite fitting. It's rather bittersweet how this is Yanamin's graduation single, though... If it were anyone from 1st gen I likely wouldn't thought much of it. It's probably just that she's the youngest that's making me feel this way.

 

Though I wonder if that song title would still be the same had it been any other member graduating.

Has anyone’s SECOND single in a group ever been their grad single before? This would be much more meaningful if it was a CG release.

Bitansan radio rip: https://mobile.twitt...562866868269057

Sounds like cheap eurodance/90ies anisong/a DDR track.

Why do I feel like it was mixed poorly even though I don't know anything about mixing songs??

This is a throwback to turn-of-the-century Jpop, and I dig it. It's very Folder 5. There are a couple of nice little chord changes and harmonies, and the girls sound really good.

I'm hella into it. This is totally the kind of thing that got me into Japanese music. I'm getting all my BeForU feels, haha.

It's a muddy radio rip.

I like it as well but this kind of J-Pop is also what got me into the genre as a whole so it feels like a big nostalgia throwback to my ddr filled childhood. I also get strong BeForU vibes from this.

Yeah, this really does call back to that europop phase Japan went through in the early 2000's.  BeForU is a solid comparison.  I'm all for it, that was one of my favorite eras of jpop!  I'm not sold on the chorus yet, I feel like it could have more impact, but not bad so far.

Ah yeah, that would probably do it. I'll wait till I hear a clean ver to give my full opinion. It definitely is nostalgic though <3

Also I legit forgot Manaka was in this group until now, oooops

These look mailed-in to me. I kind of like the Special, and to a lesser extent, Lim A, but even those are familiar. Reg B should be awesome -- the styling and poses are great -- but the lame-assed P-shopped background just kills it. Why do all of them have plain backgrounds?
 
On the positive side, I like Sayuki's new haircut a lot.

I was staring at the picture of her the special cover for a good few minutes trying to figure out who it was 😂

Both C edition covers scream Morning Musume to me and I don't like it.

 

I absolutely love the colors in Lim A though!

Yeah, that Morning Coffee Tribute pose is played-out.

GOOD BYE AND GOOD LUCK'S OUTFITS ARE SO CUTE.

 

 

That's all I have to say, besides I agree with Sayuki's haircut. And Manaba looks really pretty. As always, Danbara makes me glad I follow H!P at all.

I like the covers a lot, honestly. Clean, simple, nothing too ridiculous. I gotta say though, I HATE the "Good bye & Good luck!" outfits. The color scheme is pleasing and I like a pleather jacket on most anything, but everything looks so ill fitting! Hopefully it's better in motion, but the long floofy skirts and baggy sweaters are not pleasant.

I'm loving the hell out of 'em--those tulle skirts and chunky shoes are Japanese fashion 101 <3 <3

waaaow these are nice! They’re like not crazy creative but they just somehow look a lot more polished and coherent than H!P’s unfortunately typical slop lol. I also do like the long skirts, it’s really on trend for Japanese fashion right now and tbh a welcomed departure from the routine idol miniskirt. the radio preview was a bop, the covers are nice, I’m excited for this release 👌🏻

Looks like an old C-ute MV lol... It's okay, at least bearable to watch. Hoping they'll have something a little more engaging with the GOOD BYE & GOOD LUCK MV
