EN04. Manatsu no Sounds good!

Since the pre show and the actual concert was streamed on YouTube, I was just one of the thousands of people who are able to follow it.

The mini show was not streamed but I wish it was. In itself, it already had a good lineup. The whole setlist could actually last for 3 hours or so.

There was this awesome DJ who was really one of the highlights of the show.

Highlights of the show

– Lost the way from Diva. Even without Yuka, Sayaka managed to hold out and sing her parts really well. Umeda was so full of energy. Sae was the best dancer for this song.

– Ikujinashi Masquerade from Sashihara and 3 others. It was basically HKT on this one. The cameraman focused more on Murashige, Nakanishi and Motomura and not on Sashihara who is supposed to be the main focus of the song. I remember the backlash AnRiRe got by being in the single.

– Kuroi Tenshi – I kinda missed this song so I was happy it got performed. Not too many moments here but a decent performance.

– Faint – The only time I saw Jurina perform on that day. She looks energetic and she looks the same old Jurina we all know and love. Moriyasu and Muto were also in good vibes.

– Masaka – Kasai Tomomi was not really that into singing her song. I don’t think she’s that good in live performances but hopefully her solo career will continue.

– Shortcake – Kashiwagi finally performed it. I love the song but when I listen to the full version, I think I won’t be disappointed. She is one of Team B’s best singers so she’s really up to it.

– Otona Jellybeans – Not really performed by Mayuyu who is supposed to sing it. I can see why Kashiwagi and Sashihara are that close. They probably knew each other back then and are Mayuyu’s friends so yeah props.

Hikarumonotachi – Great song really can’t expect more out of it.
