Man, it's been some time since we had a non-grad single from the generational groups. Looking forward to this.

This is great, of course, but why is Anju jumping the queue in front of Beyo?

To be fair they're doing a stage play in November. As much as this sucks but I think this kind of seals the deal of Biyo not getting another single this year. Hoping for an early 2024 single so they can get at least two next year.

What is it with the music shift during songs in the latest H!P songs? I'm pretty pissed by now because if it wasn't for that weird chorus it could be a great song.

I dig this. I remember lamenting Hashi-Rin's entire existence in Anju not that long ago, but she's come a long way since then. Her solo line leading into the 2nd chorus was a "wow" moment for me, even if it is tuned all to hell. (Every H!P line is tuned all to hell now, sadly.) Anyway, it's wild how Anju is such a well-oiled machine that they can lose Takeuchi, add two n00bs and still not miss a beat.

I hope Life is Beautiful has a fun MV. The covers give off that vibe. But I’ve been burned before so I shouldn’t take too much stock in it just yet.

Hana Goto is like a puppy that's constantly surprised by new things in this Red Line MV reaction video. She's basically the anti-Wakana in the way she's not reserved at all, lol. It's super adorbs.

Hana moves her head around like she’s in the middle of the Brady Bunch opening.

I like the Life Is Beautiful covers a lot more than the Red Line covers.

Completely different from the MV I had in mind (thanks to the latest trends in H!P i connect outdoor MVs to ballads), but still very fun.

This feels like an OCHA song to me. It's fun, but not all that memorable.

I listened to a smidge. But I'll wait for the music video. It makes or breaks a song for me. At least in terms of H!P.

This is like a less memorable welfare version of Aisubeki Beki Human Life.

Lmao, exactly my thoughts, Jpope!

The MV is a lot of fun though. And of course, the Anju newbies are already perfectly integrated.
