I’ve also got (earlier than the CG one) Kobushi Factory’s 2nd single, Sakura Night Fever / Chotto Guchoku ni! Chototsu Moushin / Osu! Kobushi Tamashii. This is my first CD from them and I also plan to get their major debut single.
To be honest, I don’t like this release now as much as I liked it when I ordered it. I don’t regret getting it, though. This is my first Kobushi Factory CD and I got Hamachan, my favourite in the group! I was pretty happy when I saw her photo! ^-^
In the end, I like the cover as well, it turned out nice. I keep telling myself that Minamina has strange face on the Sakura Night Fever one (which I kinda regretted earlier not to get), so this was a better choice. (I didn’t like the Osu! Kobushi Tamashii one at all.)
And the poster:
I like it, it’s cute, it’s got sakura petals on it and all, but…. HOW ON EARTH BECAME HAMACHAN SO BIG? It looks really odd. XD
The songs and MVs:
Sakura Night Fever: This song is my hands down favourite one in this release. The outfits have very spring feel to them, the song is catchy, the MV is beautiful and Tagucchi being the sakura tree is hilarious. XD I also like Reirei‘s kimono scene. I listen to this song very often, since it’s spring. What else would you listen to? :3
Chotto Guchoku ni! Chototsu Moushin: This is a song that I listen to when I’m feeling like it, but didn’t grow on me enough to include on my usual playlists. It has some catchy parts (mainly the chorus for me), but I don’t like when Hamachan and Reirei crack their voices. The dresses are cute, you can’t make a mistake easily with black and white outfits. The MV is your usual H!P MV, but I really like the triangle chair scenes and the moments when the girls break through that wall of boxes; that’s pretty cool.
Osu! Kobushi Tamashii: I could copy-paste the first sentence of the previous song, so imagine it being here. The outfits… ohmygosh… I get the concept, but ohmygosh. I don’t really like them. x’D That panther(?) pattern… Not to mention that the not all the colors work with this costume imo. Minamina‘s, Tagucchi‘s and Renako‘s are okay with me, but the others are kinda strange. But the MV! It works so well! The girls did a great job, it’s too much fun to watch! I don’t even know what to highlight, it has so many great moments. You should check it yourself to see! 😉
