Ono Erena in Bog no.16

Ono Erena Fighting Hero type C single

How much has Erepyon grown up vocally?

Just take a listen to her latest single (her 5th) “Fighting Hero” which is the theme song for the drama “Tank Top Fighter” and while Erepyon may have taken a bit more of the cutesy persona in her vocal stylings of her past even into her solo career, it’s clear that she’s now aiming much more towards a mainstream audience with her latest effort here as it’s just so much more grown up and just note her vocal phrasing throughout this single, really developed and great!! Of course nothing wrong with the idol approach for cuteness on the vocal chords as I would otherwise always encourage it but for Erepyon “Fighting Hero” really shows her growth as an artist and the title track here is just so so well written which always helps! The song structure has everything composed for greatness with a wonderful build up in tension, grooving verses, w/ one of the best chorus sections and of course an infectious melody throughout with a backbeat that really gets you going and I love when drums are recorded in this ‘live’ reverberating manner as it always adds such a lively aura to any recording and let’s justOno Erena Fighting Hero first press photo & photo card say, leave the rest to Erepyon’s well performed vocals….impressive~! The coupling with track “Matte itano” is fittingly on the opposite side of the spectrum as in it’s a lovely ballad but not a sleepy one for that matter as it’s more of an upbeat ballad (if that makes any sense =P) and here Erepyon gets to display her strength, nuances and range a bit more than in the title track (particularly in the chorus sections) and really this could have been billed a double~A~side without question as both songs not only compliment each other in giving this single diversity in having polar opposites but also in the strength of the song writing for each, definitely a ☆☆☆☆☆ release! As you can see I chose the type C single version and this was certainly a case of aesthetics getting the better of me as I’d typically always choose (if not going for every DVD version) the version including the original pv which is usually the type A version (as was the case here) but it was absolutely type C’s cover art which got me….I mean it’s the cutest of the three ‘and DVD’ versions as the regular version also has a most pretty cover also but unfortunately no DVD included. Her first press editions include a photo as well as a photo card (above, right).

    • Loved her longer haired~look too! This look though really kind of represents the image I think she’s going for now and you can hear it in this new single release, a more mature Erepyon~*.

        • Haha just a little inside joke with SagSousuke ;).

          Somewhere there’s an unwritten rule about how a shorter hairstyle look equals…take me seriously/ maturing up, although of course that certainly doesn’t apply to everyone. Just a image makeover for some although many girls will get a shorter cut and at some point wear extensions anyway. Mmm the neko song =)!

            • Mmm..SagSousuke will appear out of the shadows like a superhero, a super intelligent superhero =D!!

              Let me see…idols whom i wish hadn’t gotten a shorter hairstyle @ some time or another: Gomaki, Kamei (although she did match that look and she did grow her hair long again not too long after), Ayaya, Takamina (although that was a freakish accident to say the least and she did match the shorter look too) and most recently would be Koike Yui (btw are you ever going to read that post?)…she matches but I’d still prefer her longer look.

                • With the context we spoke about it awhile back I was thinking we were going to talk about it?

                  And regarding the second part of your comment here, please please go back and look at just about any thread of comments you’re a part of and note how many times you speak of things outside of the post’s content as in change or add to outside of what we’re ‘talking’ about. Think about it for awhile and then please retract your comment above.

                  And to think I was seriously thinking about sending you my extra copy of her “Pink” photo book as a gift:

                  But seeing as you have no interest here, oh well.
