It's the Play-in round, where we pick the menu for the 1st Round top seeds! This is the C-ute Play-in. Vote for the song in each match-up that you want to see move on to the Tournament.
 
Voting for this round will be open until 12 PM Sunday (March 19).
 
For more info on the Tournament, check the information thread.

Half of these matches felt a little out of place, simply because they're high energy vs low energy songs... If you have a preference between the two it will automatically overshadow, imo. Then again, it made for easy voting :)

 

 

Zekkouchou is such a feel-good song for me, it'll be hard to beat against even more of C-ute's other songs. Not only is the MV pleasing to the eye, the message is nice and the bangos infectious.

You can do what I did and go listen to them (I just listened to intro through first chorus), or just not vote on songs you don't know.

This one was a lot easier since I know at least one from each pair! But this one will be a lot more fun haha. Especially since they were my first.

I didn't know so many of you had not heard old Berryz and C-ute songs :o

 

This comes as a surprise to me!!

After Special Generation, I got tired of Berryz. And other than 3rd ~LOVE Escalation!~, I was never much of a C-ute fan, until the Naze Hito / Summer Wind / Jinsei wa STEP! single.

Cmaj9 is a really good album if you haven't given it a listen yet...  :)

  • EVERYDAY Zekkouchou!! vs Arigatou ~Mugen no Yell~ / Arashi wo Okosunda Exciting Fight!

Song: Arigatou > Zekkouchou > Exciting Fight. The last one is just meh overall. Arigatou... I kinda got into it. Through H!P Tap Live. 
Outfits: Casual outfits, eh. Hard to judge. However, Zekkouchou > Arigatou > Exciting Fight. The Zekkouchou ones are pretty cute. The others aren't bad, but since they're available on H!P Tap Live as lousy SR cards I can't like them  :dammit:

MV: Zekkouchou > Arigatou > Exciting Fight. I know the last two were theme songs for the olympic team but... could do without them in the official video. Or make two versions.
Covers: Zekkouchou < Arigatou/Exciting Fight. It's pretty obvious °C-ute got the best covers in all of H!P for a while, that single was no exception. Zekkouchou is... so 2000's. 
Lyrics: Zekkouchou > Arigatou > Exciting Fight. Though Arigatou is pretty close.

Winner: EVERYDAY Zekkouchou!!. Though Arigato isn't that much worse. I think what got me the most was the fact that Maimi still sounded ok back then.

  • FOREVER LOVE vs Kono Machi

Song: FOREVER LOVE > Kono Machi
Outfits: FOREVER LOVE suits > FOREVER LOVE casual outfits > Kono Machi. The fabric choice in Kono Machi basically ruined it all.

MV: Uh... what's that filter in Kono Machi. FOREVER LOVE > Kono Machi
Covers: Uff, that's hard. FOREVER LOVE's are decent, Kono Machi was from a time when °C-ute's covers weren't that great yet but still better than everyone else's. FOREVER LOVE > Kono Machi since that one at least has no weird photoshop on it.
Lyrics: FOREVER LOVE < Kono Machi. Neither are amazing, just like Kono Machi a bit more.

Winner: FOREVER LOVE. Don't be fooled, I dislike them both.

  • SHOCK! vs Koero! Rakuten Eagles

Song: I've already forgotten what that Rakuten song sounds like. SHOCK! > Rakuten Eagles.
Outfits: I'm really not into baseball and think baseball kits in general are ugly. Same for Kobushi's Bacchikoi outfits btw. SHOCK! > Rakuten Eagles.

MV: It's a white background for Rakuten Eagles. Wow. SHOCK! > Rakuten Eagles.
Covers: SHOCK! > Rakuten Eagles. Not that SHOCK!'s are good or anything...
Lyrics: SHOCK! = Rakuten Eagles. I honestly don't care.

Winner: SHOCK!, and this judgement basically shows what I feel about very early °C-ute aside from Massara Blue Jeans.

  • Bye Bye Bye! vs Sekaiichi HAPPY na Onna no Ko

Song: Bye < HAPPY. I actually really like HAPPY na Onna no Ko. 
Outfits: The color-coded outfits are adorable, don't tell me otherwise. Bye < HAPPY.

MV: Bye < HAPPY. I thought the little boxes they were "living" in were cute.
Covers: Bye < HAPPY. They're pretty similar actually! Happy na Onna no Ko just had a budget.
Lyrics: I never even know what they were singing about, but the whole "girls are like that, you can't change them ;)" things annoy me to no end. So Bye > HAPPY.

Winner: Sekaiichi HAPPY na Onna no Ko. Gotta be honest, especially before they went the mature route this was one of the few °C-ute songs that I liked.

Thanks arco! I made a typo though, it should've been "I never even knew"... and then I looked it up.

You must cast your vote in each question of the poll.


Noooo!

I really only have one opinion about these songs and that's a vote FOR Shock!, can you add that in your count manually?

Just vote for others based on cover art or costumes if you don't want to vote on the music.

I could do that if I knew the votes weren't close, but I don't want to shift the voting based on a one second impression!

Then go listen to the songs and pick your favorites. Shoujo Q posted links to all of the songs in the info thread. Or don't vote. Your call. I'm not gonna keep track of stray votes, though.

Votes are only close for the 1st and the 4th matches, which is only 4 songs to listen to.

Okay, the Selection Committee missed one of C-ute's major singles when doing the pre-seeding ranking. There will be one final play-in match pitting this single against the lowest seeded winner of this round. I should've caught this error when I received the ranking, but I didn't, and this is how I'm gonna fix it. 

 

EDIT:

 

Never mind. One single was listed twice, and since that single is currently in a play-in match, I gave the missing song the higher seed.

 

Carry on!

Alright, I voted on what seems better on whim.

Bye bye bye is better than most people probably want to admit.

Yeah, not gonna lie, I've been listening to these songs while working on the bracket ( a HUGE undertaking, btw) and I can't understand how this is in a Play-in match. Then again, it's currently losing, so what do I know? I love this song, though.

Same here, it's one of my favorite songs from C-ute as a whole. So damn BOPPY! Makes you just want to get up and dance.  :lol:

 

But lol Ap, I haven't heard that version in a long time.

Bye Bye Bye! and EVERYDAY Zekkouchou!! earn hard fought victories, while FOREVER LOVE and SCHOCK! cruise into the main tournament.
