1. Dance de Bakoon! VS 4. I miss you / THE FUTURE
The great thing about this tournament for me is how some of these songs I originally ignored have grown on me from repeated listenings. "I miss you" is one of those songs. "Dance de Bakoon!" is not.
2. Mugen Climax / Ai wa Maru de Seidenki / Singing ~Ano Koro no You ni~ VS 6. Crazy Kanzen na Otona
"Mugen..." is obviously King Shit here, but "Ai wa Maru..." is outstanding, as well. I've even gotten over the idea that it might have been better suited for a different group. It's a stellar J-idol track performed by a strong group at the peak of their abilities.
1. Kiss me Aishiteru VS 4. Naze Hito wa Arasoun Darou? / Summer Wind / Jinsei wa STEP!
"Naze Hito..." is the weak link, but "Summer Wind" is my favorite Tsunku song of the last... decade? I don't know, I'd have to research it, but it might be. "Kiss me Aishiteru", otoh, is just an okay song to me.
2. Massara Blue Jeans VS 6. Aitai Lonely Christmas
I like "Aitai Lonely Christmas", but we're into the Big Boy rounds now.
