      lol seems like AAA got tired of performing midtempo ballads at kouhaku. Excited to see this fan favorite track being performed instead of koi oto to amazora or sayonara no mae ni.
      Btw what is that song that Shiina is performing?

      • HyperMoot .

        this one but I guess it’ll be with new arrangements, possibly with a more jazzy edge, just a thought though

        I used to love Hurricane Riri…ten years ago. It became so overplayed that just seeing it on the list made my heart sink. They had so many more upbeat songs that would have been way better than Hurricane Riri. What about Flavor of Kiss? That is more recent and quickly became a fan favorite. Or New? At least that one was released this year! Heck, Music!!! Is their second most overplayed upbeat song and it would have been better than Hurricane Riri.

          I know what you mean it’s in literally every single one of their concerts haha but every act has one of these songs. I think it’s nice because during the time they released it, not a lot of people knew about them I guess and since kouhaku is more of an event watched by the general public than just fans of the specific acts, it’s cool that they can give this song that probably means a lot to them and the fans some exposure ^^

      Besides Hikki, Shiina, AI, and Ayaka, the red team looks like shit. And when will JUJU get her due!? UGH! Praying these 4 Holy Goddesses have enough power pull off a win.
