I know a lot of H!P fans have been down on Manoeri's vocals since her departure from Ongaku Gatas (´⌒｀。)。。。and just wondering how she would develop or more accurately perhaps if she would ever develop.
I can't even begin to explain the elation~* I felt when I first clicked play listening to Manoeri's latest single just released on May 12th…..as I opted for the A type edition in hopes of receiving her "dance shot" pv version music video~♥!
You can instantly hear a most deliberate change~* in maturity and nuances in her vocals here with the title track beginning with the verses and it begs me to wonder perhaps there was a new vocal coach on board???….for me personally it's a bit bittersweet though as superior vocals are always most welcome in anyone's development and yet at the same time Manoeri's has so much enveloped that sort of….a "girl next door" sort of auru and it really genuinely carried over to her style of vocals since here debut♥. That being said that ever present sweet~* vulnerability in Manoeri's vocals remains…o(*´∀｀)o゛♥。But it's undeniable that Manoeri is singing with a very much different approach with this single and for anyone who's previously staged a negative opinion I can so understand your point….still I think hearing this new Manoeri~* here and now, many thoughts and opinions will be perhaps swayed….kiite kudasai o(*´∀｀)o゛♪♪～＊。
Over time artists develop, so is this a statement from Manoeri no doubt.
Perhaps it's a momentary departure from Tsunku I wonder as neither tracks were penned by H!P's musical♪ genius~*, and initially I was expecting very much an electronic~style of pop as the into and interludes would suggest….but all is doused quickly by the rest of the song's arrangement.
Simple, yet effective is the choreography and as always I so love seeing developing Eggs get a chance @ backing up main artists in a back~up dancer capacity ＾ ＾。

The b~side "Hana kotoba" is a complete contrast to the title track and wonderfully done so! as you're lullaby~ed♥ by the melody♪ and once again Manoeri's newly developed vocal strengths shine~* an in particular here in the chorus. It's so amazing to hear and visualize the step by step development of an artist both vocally and in stages of maturity, and if you've been following along♥, it's been a most cute~♥ and insightful journey of idols~* o(*´∀｀)o゛。
