Immediately the cover alone strikes you as so cute♥!!…as it was shot in a sort of a “Hard Day’s Night” type of way where Manoeri improvises for the camera creating a wall of adorable and funny facial poses to create a collage of colorful expressions~. Mm before getting to the album tracks which features many new songs including just a few single tracks there’s a couple of great surprises on the LE’s DVD =)!
First there’s another variation of the director’s cut pv and this version is so so entertaining as it plays out like a live~action comic with how all of the dialog pops up in bubbles throughout and if for no other reason than seeing how this super~powered genki* beverage when consumed can materialize both Mano and that red~guy into your room in an instant…..watch it to…….
..see Manoeri whip him, just a few more times (^q^)!
..and remember the world premier movie event for “Kaiki Tales of terror from Tokyo” @ Club Nokia which occurred in LA coinciding with the 2010 Anime Expo event? I’m so looking forward to watching this movie!!!..and there’s just a tiny glimpse here but I imagine with the movie’s official DVD release happening early next year there may be lots of additional candid footage from the event to come and here it includes her mini~live, some fan reactions and Manoeri’s @ the Anime Expo and it looks like she’s shopping?….so lucky~* if had the chance to meet here there!!
When it comes to Manoeri~♥ I hope she never sheds that innocence and that sweet girl~next~door aura she has in her voice and demeanor, still with songs like “Tomorrow” Manoeri shows a great maturity and growth in her vocals and the double~tracking sounds great too here =)! “Genkimono de ikou!” powers up lol if that was even thought to be possible 😛 and some of my other favorite songs include the latin~jazzy~pop feel of “Dare ni mo iwanaide”, the bouncy “Gomen, hanashitakatta dake”, the sweet~ballad “Arashi no mae no candle”, “Uchi e kaerou (sad version)” which is the theme for “Kaiki”….and surely by far the most interesting song “Datenshi Eri~” (“駄” meaning “fallen” as in “fallen~angel”) which plays very much like a radio comedy/musical =D.
