Sashihara Rino Soredemo sukidayo LE types A, B & C with hologram jacket card extras

This post has been in queue for awhile now unfinished and while all that’s happened since its release nothing about this release has been dampened even in light of Sasshi moving to HKT48, this solo debut single of hers most triumphant still.

Even the first press jacket cards are glittery~* and with only five different types available I was a bit lucky to not receive any duplicates with all three versions here =). For each single version you also received a random external photo extra (10 different types available) and these were sealed in individual foil packets (pictured below).

All three versions entice with exclusive tracks not found on the other versions and here it’s by far Sasshi’s rendition of Ayaya’s classic “Yeah! Meccha Holiday” which shines~*!!!! And with Sasshi being such a knowledgeable and immense fan of fellow and former J~Pop artists/idols it’s only fitting here….”Yeah! Meccha Holiday” can be found on the type C version.

~Sashihara Rino “Soredemo sukidayo” (pv)~

It’s such a joy to hear Sasshi’s vocals without ensemble and hers is a cutesy tone and style which the title track is perfectly tailored for~….here the choreography is simple yet very effective in spreading that love vibe~♥ and I have just a tinny bit of an argument with the skirt’s poofy~ness..well it’s just not a look I’ve ever really been fond of in any environment but still its vibrant red~pink~and purples win me over and this song is perfect~*.

Now getting to the DVD extras starting with type B’s disc in addition to the original pv there’s also a quite amusing clip featuring special monomane (impersonation) of AKB48 with Sasshi being a part of um…AKB~look~a~likes and some of the girls are most obvious as to whom they’re impersonating. Just think SNL does AKB48 music video spoof or something like that…(^q^)! The girl impersonating Tomochin gives me the fuzzys like where did they find this girl?…(^q^)!

Type A’s DVD extra features Sasshi’s stage drama “Muse no kagami” and here the clip captures perfectly the many many many many many……faces of Sasshi~♥!

Her comedic timing and just how naturally animated she is really make her the perfect cast~mate for any production of this genre. (._.)`ヘ´)ヘ´)(`ヘ´)ヘ´)  ....♥!!

And not to be outdone and type C’s DVD extra is perhaps the greatest of them all as Sasshi goes through the complete fan calls/chants which would accompany “Soredemo sukidayo” from start to finish in live performances!!

It’s cute as she points out where each will occur following the song’s lyrics along a chalkboard and it gets even better when she puts it all together with a complete fan ‘performance’ right alongside herself as a double window gets you perfectly acquainted with the proper calls for this cute and catchy song っo(*´∀`)o!!Yup just like at her favorite maid café, Sasshi does wota equally well as she does idoling~♥.

And last but certainly not least are the 3~part extras which accompany each version’s DVD with a part apiece, it’s the “33 Nin no Sashihara Rino x Nakamura Taikou” and in hindsight it’s in some ways a tinny bit ironic as these are acted out and portraying a relationship~♥ through a vast tapestry of life events and musings through thirty three mini clips~….here just a few of my favorite visual Sasshi~isms which occur throughout.
