Re: [2024.05.15] Juice=Juice - Tokyo Blur / Naimono Love / Oaiko

Ah, so Riai is still in J=J! Good to see her getting some real burn finally, even if it is on an off-the-rack neo City Pop track like this. Seems like she's been forgotten in the push to promote the girls from the last two gens. This single isn't really hitting it for me so far, though.

We got two songs moving on, but then a tie appeared at the end.

Re: UFP/OG Spam Thread :: All things non-Hello!Project Related!

So Sayubee released a song back in February, and apparently none of us knew about it, lol! It's straight ahead mid-tempo J-pop, and while it's not a heater, I kinda dig it.

"Lonely Night"

Woah. I guess we're gonna find out if she learned how to sing over the last year!

I'm honestly pulling for her based on how she handled her crash-and-burn at last year's Shinden test. I'm also looking forward to see how much Nina has progressed.

Re: Kasahara Momona Becomes Candidate on Produce 101 Japan

"Sugar Bomb" is more solidly in the K-pop realm than "Click" was, and doesn't stick with me as much. This is more like what I was expecting from the start, tbh.

Re: [2024.05.15] Juice=Juice - Tokyo Blur / Naimono Love / Oaiko

Honestly didn’t listen to the concert rip so that dance break felt like such a record scratch. It’s okay but it’s missing a pop. Like it’s not going to its full potential. The vocals just aren’t hitting me right. I feel like Karin could have added a lot to the vocals if she were still in the group....

Last year I posted some YT vids of a guy who did voice replacement of newer H!P songs with OG voices. I think they're in the H!P spam thread, but not positive. They were pretty hit-and-miss. I haven't messed with A.I. that much myself.

There's been some discussion on Twitter about whether the company made her lose weight or if she has an eating disorder. I'm not gonna speculate on the why, but she is really thin compared to just a few months ago.

The first of the multi-group Round 1 polls features Juice=Juice and Country Girls. As with all the previous polls, you get six votes. I should probably keep a public tally of the winners and losers of each poll, so I'll add that to the first post some time this week. And yes, I have been keeping tra...

Those covers are very H!P :lol: . Nothing wrong with any of them, and a couple are very nice, but pretty formulaic for the company by this point. It seems like OCHA and Biyo are the only groups who get to color outside the lines in terms of cover art.

Seeing a vote for "Zanshin" makes me happy, because I wanted to vote for it, but there were just too many I like more. I really dig that song, though.
