Oricon #1 / Billboard Hot 100 #1: Kis-My-Ft2 – Akai Kajitsu (not available for streaming or download)

Ronald: All I can think about is how borderline juvenile this sounds. I’ve this before about this group, about how they try to present this bad ass masculine vibe, but it doesn’t really work. 4/10

Streaming Songs #1: DAOKO x Yonezu Kenshi – Uchiage Hanabi (Oricon #139 / Billboard Hot 100 #8 / Download Songs #13)

Ronald: Same as before: This is basically a Yonezu Kenshi song featuring DAOKO. I have my problems with Kenshi, and they’re evident in this song. While listening to this, all I can think of is a rehash of a The Chainsmokers song. But I will say that DAOKO’s voice has improved. I listened to one of her albums a few years ago and I had to stop it a few songs in because her voice literally gave me a headache and made me want to vomit. I don’t have that issue now! However, I’m a bit lost as to what her point is. She was a rapper, and now she’s trying to be a popstar? I don’t get it… 5.5/10

Download Songs #1: Kegani feat. DracoVirgo – Seiren naru Heretics (not released physically / Billboard Hot 100 #6 / not released for streaming)
