Announcing it three months before the release? I guess there's a lot of events coming again. Granted they'd kill the hype if they sold around 50k copies like the other non-MM groups atm.


/EDIT: Two months. I'm blind. That's pretty normal.

Surprised it’s not an album, because I’d be surprised if they get another release this year unless it’s like the last week in December.

I'm ready for Tsubaki to wreck my lowly opinion of them again :)


Honestly, if this single is a hit for me as well, they'll probably pass Kobushi song-wise for me. Let's just say I have expectations that this single will be good!!

I was thinking about how such a long title could only be a Tsunku song and yeah, it is. From Jplop:


First song is an electro dance number by Tsunku since Just Try
2nd song is a sad song by Teion Yakedo lyrics writer
3rd song by Kodama and Takui, a summer digital ska beat song. Pay attention to their yukata in the MV

Just Try sucked, so I don't trust Tsunku one bit.

Yeah Just Try is one of my least favorites of Tsubaki. The girl who did Teion Yakedo and Ameko though are awesome!!

I read Junjou Centimeter as Juicy Center at first and it made me want to die temporarily.

Kishimon's hair is such a refreshing style right now, I think that kind of length looks great on her and her personality.

Junjou cm PV is on Hello Station
It’s nice- not an instant love, but I like the chorus.

Outside of both A's -- and Limited A in particular -- this is a really nice set of covers. WTF is the deal with Lim A, though?  :facepalm:

Ami kind of looks like Park Hye-Shin. I wonder how she would do in Korea.

Some of those covers are straight up embarrassing LOL.  I hope Hello!Project's graphic design team is paid barely minimum wage tbh.  They continually serve junior high level skills.


I have to hand it to Tsubaki... not only is their music getting better, but I can finally listen to them without grimacing.  Their vocals used to be painful even on the studio cut.  I can't attest to their live skills, I doubt they're very good, but they've come light years in terms of studio vocals.

Management is probably already saving money for the new groups.

Albiet boring, I think that some of these are pretty cute and I’m really really liking Tsubaki Factory right now (limited A though, lol wat). I also feel like I understand why the covers are consistently boring and basic— H!P just has SO many groups right now that have maybe way too many editions of every single, and they probably stretch their small graphic design department thin with these, so I can imagine it’s hard to be creative with every single one of them when the graphics department is just handed some stock photos of the girls and told to work with what they have. I’d then like to think maybe we could at least get one like awesome cover per single if they NEED all these limited versions but what’s the point when sales don’t seem to really seem to be effected by the cover quality either way lol. I don’t anticipate the trend of boring covers ending any time soon.

Probably my favorite part of the entire video was the fact that they put a little border on the top and bottom of the thing to make it look like a centimeter ruler and I thought that was a nice little touch.


Other than that, I loved the song and I really hope H!P keeps that lyric writer because they are doing wonders.

This song really reminds me of a Nogi46 B-side and I am here for it!

I like how they’re incorporating the mainstream Idol sound into Tsubaki. It keeps H!P more interesting!

Preview of the PV for Date no Hi in this week's Station episode.


Both of these songs are pretty solid, but I definitely prefer Junjou.  This song is a little too generic, to the extent it could've easily gone to any other active group other than Kobushi or ANGERME imo.  Like I can easily see MM doing this as one of their slower tracks or J=J doing it as one of their "mature" releases. 


It's a shame the videos so far are very cheap, 'cause Junjou might be my favorite H!P song this year.  H!P videos are always cheaper than they have an excuse to be though so it's not like I can say anyone else is getting superior treatment lol.

I’m not instantly in love with this single like I was with the last 2, but it’s still pretty solid. I’m hoping the 3rd song will be more upbeat.

#29 DonJuan


Posted 28 June 2018 - 04:58 PM

It is more upbeat indeed :lol:

I wonder if they'll do a dance shot with alternative outfits because I can't imagine them dancing in yukatas to this :lol:


I think Tsubaki is going the more mainstream idol way, which they might success at. If there's one positive thing I can say about H!P right now, it's that they are starting to get a bit more deverse:


  • Morning Musume: "Cool"/"lame-cool" EDM
  • ANGERME: alternative (not so much the song as the general group dynamic - of course compared to actual alternative idol groups they still seem very traditional, but among H!P fans they're the most likely to be considered that)
  • Juice=Juice: mature, voice-focused
  • Kobushi: rockish
  • Tsubaki: mainstream

It makes sense that the least talented group should be the most mainstream :lol:
