The other side of this Double A-side single, Tasogare Kousaten will be the ending to the OVA anime, "Kimi no Machi". (From H!O)

She looks like Hello Kitty. I don't know how I feel about this PV. It's kind of random and weird, which makes it fun, but the imagery and coloring seem a bit off from the song. At the same time, I really like Mano in this. She's really good at being cute and showing girlishness (like her :3 face when she looks at her cell phone) without being over the top or exaggerated. The song itself is fun and catchy, too.

PS. I'd hit it.

I guess it's because we're getting two PVs this time. I like how the video starts, I'd watch that movie.

No close-up shot of her face? WHAT HAVE THEY DONE WITH OUR PREDICTABLE BORING MANO??

I want a giant Mano eyeball for her next cover.

I wish they cartoonified her face a little more. I don't know, it just looks kind of weird to me as it is.

I'm really trying to say it's not just that I prefer one over the other, but surely a kick ass upbeat song like Doki should be the one being performed over the ballad?
Unless you had a singer who could WOW people with their voice (which she doesn't have).....

Doki Doki Baby wins hands down for favorite Mano song since uhm, it's been awhile.

The lyrics and music were both done by a completely unknown guy named 本上遼. The internet barely even knows how to read his name, but I've settled on Honjo Ryo for now. He has written exactly two songs in his professional career, and they are both on this single. I would say that this marks the first of Mano's songs that one of Tsunku's friends didn't compose, but it would appear that this guy is Tsunku's friend as well. Because, besides these two songs, the only other information about him is that he wrote all the filler songs for The Possible's upcoming album. Songs that apparently Tsunku was too busy or unmotivated to write himself. He also can't seem to arrange on his own because all of his songs are co-arranged by him and a slightly-less-anonymous musician named Harada Katsumichi.
Honjo's poetry has already started to show its tendencies in these two songs, and I wonder whether they will also be apparent in The Possible's album. He makes competent use of interesting interlocking repetition, and "Tasogare Kousaten" is a workmanlike extended metaphor. It remains to be seen whether he will continue abusing ellipses.
Despite Miura's absence, Honjo manages to tease us with a "mune" in "Dokidoki Baby", but then really establishes his place as Mano's lyricist by placing the complete "kono mune" in the second a-side. After a short break with "Genkimono", we are now on a three-single streak of this phrase appearing in a-sides (that makes this one number eight, plus one album track and one b-side).

Estimated first day sales for the last single, My Days for You, were 5,205.
Not very encouraging for Mano.
