Compete with River

It is not a surprise or special for me that again AKB48 hit the #1 oricon weekly with 179K sales. The one that make me surprisingly happy is that mana and her gang made it in the safe place in #10! This is a new record that they manage to that place against such a huge name (and size). I just realized that both of ’em released at same day! Well, i don’t know too much about AKB and won’t know farther about them.

Mana was even more amazing in this single, both her voice and appearance in “Daisuki ni nare”‘s PV. I think she born as a soloist, since she got too many solo line in any canary’s songs. After two consecutive single for anime “Gokujou! Mecha Motte Iinchou” she only act as model and din’t get a line at all, now she lift NGP to the surface again. It remembered me when last year she release her debut single “Suppin Rock” was released with Aya Hirano’s “Namida Namida Namida”. But that’s a different story because both of them were at the same anime “Hyakko”. This time she really compete with a big name in japan music industries.

As one of NGP’s ace sure she can prove that she is really an ace that worth. May the force be with her and she choose the Diva career path.

Kalafina – Progressive (full radio preview)

Yet another awesumness. Kalafina, the current Yuki Kajiura’s active team still won’t stop with yuki’s classic-modern contemporary music style. And just as it said in this song’s title “Progressive”, this song can be categorized as progressive too, just like their other awesome song that included in this single’s limited edition DVD, “Love Come Down”. I love Yuki’s music style since she still in see-saw. I love classical music, like Beethoven’s ,Tchaikovsky’s, and many others. And love it even more if re-arranged or made with modern style.
