My first thought was…a~h! there's "arashi♥" written in the title~* (人∀`*)。。lol not having many deep thoughts XD~*! But the title track "Haru no arashi" is quite an enchanting song♪ albeit I wouldn't consider this to be one of Tsunku's more remarkable compositions as he opted to skip the lyrical content and instead penned the music for both tracks~.
In a sort of rare case with Manoeri it took me a couple of listens before I was really appreciating this new song…still it's a mild affection~* (*´∀｀*)♥。。。and I found myself even further apart in liking its coupling with track "Hello! Esper! Hello", given it's a drama theme song and in most cases they simply go hand~in~hand with the drama itself often lending to a greater love of the theme or vice versa perhaps~? ＾ ＾ Here it's quite special though as "Hello! Esper! Hello!" serves as the theme for "Hanbun Esper" which also stars Manoeri herself~♥ and began airing in January…..also after a few listens～♪ it does grow on you and is surely a cutesy~* styled song but somehow it almost seems as if Manoeri herself regresses backwards to her less nuanced vocals of the past (・д・`*)。
While LE Type B's cover I think is much more eye catching~* and prettier, it's Type A which includes an additional DVD with a pv version and ended up being the version I chose to purchase….I'm also thinking that the original pv~♥ version may be included on her just released (3/3/10) "Clips" collection DVD which I haven't received just yet~, as with Type A you'll receive the "Dance Shot Ver." only.
With the major debut of S/mileage upcoming~* and surely their schedules now full of tweeting~*, school and idol♥ lessons becoming much more demanding these days, I imagine it's also the reason why four new Eggs have now joined in as Manoeri's back~up dancers and much like how Johnny's grows their talent from within it's always wonderful to see more and more Eggs getting a much needed opportunity to learn and shine in the spotlight ne~ (￣▽￣)！
