=LOVE – Sakura no Saku Oto ga Shita
Maybe I should have added this to the long series of Hitomaika? Maybe but something was lacking and that is of course clear cut relationship between Hitomi and Maika here, my top ship for the group!
Spring is of course here and this single is rightfully themed for Spring, which is when graduations happen in Japan! Speaking of I guess this is a missed opportunity to have that love story centred on that inevitable separation, though I guess they had to read the room given but still, I am sure fans can tell the difference between fiction and reality.
Anyway, I loved too that Maika is finally coming back to her position, actually, this is like someone read my misgivings about the latest singles and how Maika has been relegated to lower positions! I guess they took the right message from how her B-side centred song performed from the previous single. Now we are back to the original three and I might just be projecting but it seemed to me Maika had a super high screen time count in here, if not the most!
Of course I wish there was more to the story especially the nekoze band members and especially Hitomi and Maika because come on, there is definitely something there!
Question is though, who is that ribbon, that plays a big part in the story, from?! I mean, I am already instilling my own logic here but a sure answer would have been fine!
I guess this is why Fan Fiction exists, huh! To feel in the gaps like these! You could just insert your own threads where the pieces are missing!
Seriously though, It’s been single since we got a yuri MV from you =LOVE (And you AKB48), so get with the programme and do something about it!
At least =LOVE is trying though and they already won me over with the step up in quality with these 4K MV releases! Meanwhile AKB…Eh, let’s not beat that drum just yet, eh…
