LIVE (Erika Piano Only Version) – GODLY
I am sorry but comparing AKB48’s Haru single (So Long) with Nogizaka46’s similarly themed single
‘Kimi no na wa Kibou’, there just IS a gap so wide one can only shake their heads because it is the same writer for both groups!
First AKB is getting slaughtered by the sisters and now even Nogizaka is making them eat dust! Seriously, I am starting to get embarrassed by most of things AKB. I can’t even remember the last time I enjoyed an AKKBINGO episode, went bazonkers over a single or throw my money at the TV just because AKB48 is on it!
Those days are long gone. I think even AkiP himself is giving up on them because what other explanation is there for them to suck while their sisters and rival are only going up, up and away?! I have listened to So Long in full, I think only twice, or thrice at most! But Kimi no na wa Kibou on the other hand, damn girl, not only does the song touch me deeply compelling me to replay it and shed a tear, but the girls execute it so well that….
OMG you guyz, Kragorin, you have to watch their LIVE version of it where they didn’t use BGM in it except the piano…
THAT WAS BEING PLAYED BY ERIKA HERSELF!!!!
The girls’ voices…..
I sure hope the AKB girls watched this because…I mean I know it wouldn’t change anything since they aren’t in charge but…Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh
And since we are comparing singles, let’s not forget the couplings….SHAKISM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! If Kimi no na wa was combo breaker, then SHAKISM is the ultimate move, pulled off as a finisher! So Long stood no chance! First AKB single I didn’t buy since I became a fan!
And let’s not even go into the beauty of the PVs! I think everyone here knows of AKB QUALITY when it comes to their PVs, which is still, even at this moment, a mystery to me. I now have no choice but to believe that they actually hire terminators who specialise in turning things ugly! So, let’s not go there. Needless to say, Nogizaka wins in Quality hands down to.
If only all the time wasted on So Long was instead donated to SHAKISM….
Jump ahead for glorious caps…..
PS: RINA’S HAIR….OMFG!!!! *faints*
