wow! does this mean she's leaving immediately, with no final concert etc?
Yeah I think that’s my fav track too, great album.
It was a wild ride.
Never seen you write up so much about news like this. I only listen to a few of their songs, but I can imagine it really sucks for the fans.Yeah I think that’s my fav track too, great album.
It was a wild ride.
On one hand, I was thinking ”Should they really be putting the spotlight that much on her?”. The few times she couldn’t perform, Habu, Risa, Kobayashi, Suzumoto... showed that they could nail the center position.
On the other hand whenever she‘d came back I was like ”Oh right, that’s why she’s the center”. She’s got that IT factor, that charisma, I just can’t look away, and I can’t imagine her not being the heroine of the whole thing. Putting her in a different position would just feel weird.
It’s a mix of ”well, that’s because we’re used to seeing her as the center” and ”yeah, but she’s also on a whole other level”.
I don’t really know how to process it, I’ve been thinking about this the whole day lol
Like... she’s the one of the main reasons why Keyakizaka46 are Keyakizaka46. She’s why I got into them and into idols in general. I’ll never forget the impact she had on me.
And at the same time, to quote an infamous game review, ”Hirate’s only problem is that she’s almost too good”. I feel like the only way the group can evolve and go the next level is by parting ways with Hirate. Maybe they’ll just fade away, who knows.
I dunno, I’m just rambling and sounding like a disgusting wota (I guess I am, but I don’t want to admit it!) at this point... lol
So yeah, I’m both gutted, and incredibly curious to see what happens from now on. What does a post-Hirate Keyakizaka46 look like. Wait and see.
Not my usual wheelhouse so hard to suggest anything, but I wonder if you might find something of worth in Wednesday Campanella's most recent EP, Yakushima Treasure?
Happy to hear that Any new artists you’ve enjoyed in particular?
Gave this a follow over at Spotify, will check it out from time to time. Thanks!Happy to hear that Any new artists you’ve enjoyed in particular?
I’ve also started a 2020 playlist. I put singles, and like 2 songs from every album/EP I’ve liked.
Should be a good way to stay in the loop since I pretty much update it every week with new releases.
No problem buddy, hope you’ll discover new cool stuff thanks to this
Just saw this, Enon is crazy. Any year with new Gesu and new indigo albums is a great year. and hopefully an ichikoro album too >.>
group has been in a state of falling apart for the better part of 4 years but I'm stoked I got to see them live and cover jun togawa with hijokaidan no lesslooks like Avandoned are finally throwing in the towel
6 years is a long time for any group, hope Beni carries on in her inimitable way in some form or another (is the Childish Tones collab an ongoing thing?)
here's their lovely final single Margaret which was released last summer
I’ve watched some but they don’t look nearly as impressive as Eve’s since they’re mostly live-action + a bunch of stills instead of fully animated shots.
mol-74 are fantastic. Had the chance to saw them at Viva La Rock in 2017, and the first notes ofエイプリル made me cry lol
maybe look into the whole Koutei Camera thing? there's been various lineups & group names, lots of genres and styles covered, but basically the same production staff throughout
