Kis-My-Ft2 - Akai Kajitsu
CD + DVD A
CD + DVD B
Akai Kajitsu is Kis-My-Ft2's 20th single & it was released on 29th Nov .
This single was released 5 months + since their previous single PICK IT UP .
Akai Kajitsu was used to promote TV Asahi's Juuyou Sankounin Tantei drama starring member Tamamori Yuta & NEWS's Koyama Keiichiro .
This song was made for the purpose of being the theme song for Juuyou Sankounin Tantei . With its mysterious + mature charm , Akai Kajitsu is unlike any other single Kis-My-Ft2 has released .
Akai Kajitsu is described as having a mysterious & mature atmosphere that's reinforced by strong lyrics and the group's innovative performance .
The B-side tracks include everything from dance to pop tunes , mid tempo songs that's perfect for Winter . The songs that have been recorded allow fans to experience the various facets of the group .
HOT!×2 was used in the ads of Kowa's Hokkairo Shin Nukunuku Touban starring Kis-My-Ft2 themselves .
FUTURE TRAIN & Ima wa Mada Touku Hateshinai Yume mo are only available in the CD only version of Akai Kajitsu . For FUTURE TRAIN , it was used in the ads of JR Kyushu's GO! GO!! Kis-My-Kumamoto Oita starring Kis-My-Ft2 themselves .
Kis-My-Ft2 wraps up yet another fruitful year with their latest single offering Akai Kajitsu .
With Akai Kajitsu being their 20th single , I like that they chose to commemorate this milestone by doing something different ie. creating 2 different music videos for the same song which I thought it's interesting .
B-sides wise , I like Ima wa Mada Touku Hateshinai Yume mo the most followed by FUTURE TRAIN . Both songs have a strong Winter influence & it's bit unfortunate Kis-My-Ft2 didn't chose to release another Winter theme single as I thought both tracks have potential .
For Kis-My-Ft2 , even though I don't think this's possible but I hope that they can consider to slow down releasing new material in 2018 . This year was the 1st time I didn't like a studio album of theirs ie. MUSIC COLOSSEUM but at least singles wise they still got it .
Kis-My-Ft2 will kick off 2018 with the release of LIVE TOUR 2017 MUSIC COLOSSEUM DVD + Blu-ray which will be released on 31st Jan 2018 .
