Huh. Nobody talked about this, did they? That's really surprising.

STILL WAITING ON THE ANGERME AND KOBUSHI NEW SINGLES THO
And with this, they have 5 new songs that aren't on any album, so I'm guessing their second album is in the works?? We'll see.
Posted 22 February 2017 - 02:34 AM
That's fine with me. Their first album was great and I'd consider buying the second one, too. I still regret not buying the last single because I actually liked the two main songs quite a bit.
Posted 22 February 2017 - 02:48 AM
I have their first album and I really like it, and I really like "Kono Sekai wa Suteta Mon ja nai" which is one of their new songs which hasn't been given a home on an album yet. I don't particularly like to listen to their singles by themselves but their album was great. I'd like a second one as well...
Just salty that J=J is the next group to get a single release when Angerme's last single was released mid-October, and Kobushi's last single was in late July =/

True, they're overdue for a release. I'd excuse Kobushi because of their movie thing, but ANGERME really needs something... (as we at least hear about Kobushi).

And let's not forget we're having 3 songs a single for almost every group, instead of one main song and a b-side. That's 3x the work, really... lol.
Posted 26 February 2017 - 03:40 AM
I don't care how many groups they have if they're good, and 2016 was a really good year, IMO.
Posted 26 February 2017 - 03:51 AM
I'm probably not going to be impressed with this single since its J=J, but hopefully I'll be surprised.

No more than they have had in the past. Back in the day they had more soloists than groups and sub-groups.
The problem lies in that they are relying more on outside help instead of just Tsunku micromanaging everything.

They were also not selling that much. Heike Michiyo did well in her first two years or something but then sank to the bottom. Melon Kinenbi constantly sold a few thousand copies. While they didn't sell badly it was a stark contrast to Morning Musume and all their subunits.
Granted, you could argue that some groups would sell around the same nowadays without keeping them artificially high with handshake events and the like.
Yeah but that adds to my point about H!P not being MM and Friends anymore. It was easy to have a million groups when more than half of them were inactive for long periods of time. Now they actually kind of treat them all equally and that takes up more time.
Posted 27 February 2017 - 03:34 AM
And Tsunku doesn't do majority of the work himself anymore, so I don't think there's too much going on that couldn't be handled by other people

Or merge it, as the info in Anderei's first post here is worthwhile.

I'm very interested in "Jidanda Dance", what with BLACC HOLE being involved. A lot of his (her, their?) K-Pop stuff has a retro vibe without being retro, if that makes any sense.
Rainbow Pixie - "Hoi Hoi" https://www.youtube....h?v=4oUtxee1QM8
Orange Caramel - "Milkshake" - https://www.youtube....h?v=5e2hR5zuGtA
Also did Rainbow's "To Me", which was a pretty successful song in 2011. https://www.youtube....h?v=xqvdj0Fl_MY. Or maybe I just thought it was successful since my wife played the shit out of it back then, lol.

Jidana dance does not feel like Juice=Juice song, for sure. The audio mix seems reaaaallly odd on it, as well. Maybe it's the rip but it's very odd.
Feel! seems like a less Kono Sekai wa Suteta Mon ja nai. I dunno, I prefer Kono Sekai. Feel! is like a mix of that and Wonderful World.

Watching it live, Jidanda dance feels like Berryz. It's odd.
Also, Yukanyan really showed her vocal improvement with this song in particular. She sounded great live.
