    • onigiriakemi

      Liked it! Quite original for a JE group

    • Touch, and Tegoshi (and his damn vibrato) got me interested this days haha, the preview sounds pretty good and that’s a really cool PV as well.

      Probably this album was released on my Birthday and it’s clear that they would love to dedicate that album to us birthday calebrants on that day especially to me!! (March 9) … Probably I love the song “Wonder” (with that Americanized/Jed Madela high notes from my only favorite idol and ichiban Tego-kun as he sang very horizontally). On the other hand, Yonjuushi is probably their best anison (anime song) ever since the song is about the heart of teamwork! :)
