Just released on the 23rd!~! ….the handsomest + cutest!! + I WANT THEM~♡~! duo on planet earth returned with a new double A~side single release!!
Now if you recall their “Trip & Treasure” album which was released waaaaay back in 2011, there was the inclusion of the song titled “Yamanotesen Sotomawari” which paid homage to the Yamanote Line and so now a few years later Tackey & Tsubasa revisits the motif with a now sequel titled “Yamanotesen Uchimawari~Ai no meiro~” featuring comedian Nakagawa Reiji with a no holds barred tribute to all that is the life of a railroad geek =P!
“Yamanotesen Uchimawari~ai no meiro~” is available in three versions: Limited Edition singles types A and B include an additional DVD, each exclusively with one of the double A-side music videos (ahhh a reason to purchase both of course!! =) ) while the regular edition includes two exclusive songs which aren’t included on either LE version.
All first pressings come with these oh~too~cute stickers ~♡, stickers which you readily know you will never dare use as they’re nothing like those Little Mermaid stickers that I had when I was very very little which I then proceeded to stick to various places in my bedroom not yet realizing that I so should have kept them intact （´∩｀*)。
~Tackey & Tsubasa “Jikan ryokou second!” (mv)~
I’d usually start with the first version however on this occasion I’m going to begin with the second, or more specifically, single type B’s A-side exclusive music video as it was produced with the cutest and most amusing animations (*´∀｀*) ♪～♪。
Just imagine Tackey & Tsubasa aka: too hot guys!!!! ….taking you along for a History Chanel inspired ~* ride across the globe hitting many of those wonders~of~the~world type locations ^^. I particularly love when their heads are superimposed upon animated bodies giving them that sort of bobble-head look which here comes complete with giddy facial expressions all reacting to this highly imaginative and worldly adventure made in animated bliss ^^. The song plays in deep contrast to its counterpart A-side as “Jikan ryokou second!” is a mid tempo contemporary pop tune with an underlying jazzy feel …pretty much a lighthearted and fun ….good feel song. While watching the mv be sure to be on the constant lookout for worldly known landmarks, historical sites, a bit of mythology as well as natural phenomenon =). And YES that would explain the boys being dressed in a bit of touristy wardrobes on this editions cover artwork.

no meiro~” (mv)~
Okay being that we’ve already covered the theme of the title track A-side in the opening here as it relates to the whole essence of a “railroad geek” life as captured in comedic form, let’s get right to this song’s flavor as “Yamanotesen Uchimawari~ai no meiro~” has got that whole hot salsa flair to it ….all wrapped and neatly choreographed into a soft flour tortilla ～♡ (*´∀｀*) ♪～♪。Everything here is really representative of T&T’s now deeply embedded trademark style which fully bloomed during their “Venus” single’s campaign! And you know what makes an already hot guy take it to the next level of smoldering cuteness?? It’s totally him not taking himself too seriously (*´∀｀) ー＞♥♥♥！And the reason why I mention this is that Tackey & Tsubasa have totally branded themselves in this way ever since they burst onto the scene all those years ago ^^. And a fun and endearing quality of this can be seen directly in their style of choreography for just this style of song here which YES goes way back to their “Venus” single and still further back in songs such as the very notable and memorable “Ho! Summer”…as it entertains an abundance of deliberately expressed movements all drenched with an aura of simplicity.
Oh and did I happen to mention just how hot the guys are looking here!!!! Especially my dear~♥ Tackey whom is about as yummy as a guy can be!~!, you know as allowed by the universe of course ^^!~!
