Last Call is flumpool's 17th single & it was released on 15th March .

This's flumpool's 1st single release of 2017 & Last Call was originally supposed to be released on 22nd March .

Last Call was picked to be used as the theme song for the movie Sakurada Reset : Zenpen/Kouhen .

Sakurada Reset : Zenpen/Kouhen is a live-action film adaptation based on a light novel series written by Kono Yutaka . It's directed by Fukagawa Yoshihiro , who is known for his Kamisama no Karute series . The story is about 2 high school students named Asai Kei (played by Nomura Shuhei) & Haruki Misora (played by Kuroshima Yuina) . Asai has an unique power to store memory while Haruki has the ability to reset the world in 3 days . Other cast members include Taira Yuna , Kentaro , Tamashiro Tina & Tsunematsu Yuri .

Last Call was written by vocalist/guitarist Ryuuta & composed by guitarist Kazuki . On this song , Ryuuta commented, "The theme is 'hope for the future' . I incorporated Asai's strength & fragility as he tries to search for the meaning of his past sorrows , while desperately trying to look for the answer he can only find in the future ."

Part one of the film opened in Japan cinemas on 25th March & the 2nd part will be released on 13th May .

Nomura Shuhei appears in the Last Call video as a special guest . He last appeared in flumpool's Mitsumeteitai video 8 years ago .

2 B-sides are found in Last Call . The 1st 1 Namida Reset will be used as the 2nd part ending theme song for Sakurada Reset : Zenpen/Kouhen while Kizu na Kizu was used in NHK's Minna no Uta for last & this month .

flumpool showcase their emotional side with the release of their latest single offering Last Call .

After releasing the EDM driven FREE YOUR MIND , Last Call brings back to a more old school mid tempo vibe of flumpool which also reminds me of some of their older works such as Frame .

Between both B-sides , I prefer Kizu na Kizu a bit more as it's upbeat while Namida Reset takes time to appreciate as it's almost 7 mins long so time duration wise , that might be a drawback for the song .

It reminds to be seen what flumpool will do next music wise but I will not be surprised if they will release a new album . And since they will be doing a tour in the last 4 months of 2017 , I think prior to that , it might happen if not I wouldn't mind another new single if not mini album .

V6 - Can't Get Enough / Hanahirake

CD

CD + VR

CD + DVD A

CD + DVD B

Can't Get Enough / Hanahirake is V6's 47th single & it was released on 15th March .

This's the group's 1st single release of 2017 & their last single release was last June's Beautiful World while their last double A-side single release was 2011's Sexy.Honey.Bunny! / Takara no Ishi .

Unlike Sexy.Honey.Bunny! / Takara no Ishi where only Sexy.Honey.Bunny! had a video made , this time round videos were made for both Can't Get Enough + Hanahirake .

The 1st A-side Can't Get Enough was used as 7net's Spring promotional song & it's described as a cool dance track .

Described as a joyful pop number , the 2nd A-side Hanahirake was used in the ads of House Foods' Tongari Corn .

2 B-sides are both only available in the CD only edition of Can't Get Enough / Hanahirake :

- Ashiato ; used in Prince Hotel's Winter theme ads . Beautiful World was last year used in Prince Hotel's Summer theme ads
- MANIAC

For Can't Get Enough / Hanahirake , V6 has experimented with virtual reality for the 1st time . A CD VR version of the single is issued which will allow fans to download special content to a smartphone . By connecting the phone with a VR set , fans will be able to experience content as if they're physically there .

1 of the most respected senior Johnnys group finally released new material & after the awesome uplifting Beautiful World , I was hopng they could release another new single last year but to no avail .

Thankfully , Can't Get Enough / Hanahirake is quite a good single although for some reason/s , their double A-side single/s have been hard for me to like both A-sides equally as for Sexy.Honey.Bunny! / Takara no Ishi , it took me quite a really long time not to dislike Sexy.Honey.Bunny! .

Let alone for only dreaming / Catch , I like the 1st A-side a lot more than the 2nd A-side .

In Can't Get Enough / Hanahirake , I like Can't Get Enough slightly more than Hanahirake . The 1st A-side reminds me of a slightly less cheesy but edgy version of Sexy.Honey.Bunny! .

As for Hanahirake , I wasn't fond of the song initially but the video more or less changed my opinion on it .

All in all , I'm still glad that V6 is still going on strong & I do hope they can release a new album next as it has been 4 years sine they last released Oh! My! Goodness! .

Saito Kazuyoshi - Iden

Cover for both CD Regular & CD Limited

1) Iden
2) Ikisaki wa Mirai
3) Himawari ni Tsumoru Yuki

Iden is Saito Kazuyoshi's 46th single & it was released last month on 22nd Feb .

This's Saito's 1st single release of 2017 .

Iden was chosen to be used as the theme song for TBS's family comedy Gekokujo Juken that starred Abe Sadao and Fukada Kyoko . The A-side was specially written around the theme of the priceless love between parents & children .

2 B-sides are included in the single which both of them were released digitally last year .

Ikisaki wa Mirai was released digitally last year on 9th Sept . It was used as the theme song for the movie Cho Kosoku! Sankin Kotai Returns that starred Hey ! Say ! JUMP's Chinen Yuri .

The 2nd B-side Himawari ni Tsumoru Yuki was released digitally last year on 8th July & it was used to promote Shiseido's Snow Beauty 2016 Sakasa ni Furu Yuuki short movie .

Shiseido produced various short movies to coincide with the release of Snow Beauty III whitening face powder that was launched last year on 21st Sept .

Saito Kazuyoshi's latest single offering offers a mix bag of different music styles . I quite enjoyed both B-sides prior to them being included in Iden so I'm not so fussy about that and the A-side itself is quite nice too .

It reminds to be seen what Saito plans to release next but I think it's about time for him to release a new album as he last released 2 different albums on the same day 4 years back .

Kis-My-Ft2 - INTER

CD

CD + DVD A

CD + DVD B

INTER is Kis-My-Ft2's 18th single & it was released on 1st March .

This's the group's 1st single release of 2017 & it's also their 1st triple A-side single even though 2 songs had videos made .

INTER covers the bases with a bright dance song , a love ballad & a positive medium-tempo number .

The 1st A-side Tonight is a dance song in which the video has a wild & sexy theme . Promo wise , it was used in the ads of Daiichi Kosho's LIVE DAM STADIUM .

Kimi no Iru Sekai is the 2nd A-side & it was used in the ads of Kowa's Hokkairo Nuku Nuku Toban . The accompanied video has a love & cute theme .

The last A-side SEVEN WISHES was used in the ads of JR Kyushu's Atarashii 7tsu no Nagasaki e KISS MY NAGASAKI & this song had no video made .

Zenryoku Fighter serves as the B-side in INTER & this uptempo track is only available in the CD only edition of the single .

Kis-My-Ft2 made a statement with the release of their 1st triple A-side single INTER .

I feel their previous single Sha la la☆Summer Time to be on the weaker side singles wise so luckily the group stepped things up with INTER .

The 3 A-side songs offered something for everyone but to me Tonight is no doubt the star of the single as it's a great mash up of FIRE BEAT , Another Future (visual/video concept wise) , Kiss Damashii & Gravity .

As for Kimi no Iru Sekai , the song & video is enough to rival/be on par with their senior ARASHI's One Love as Kis-My-Ft2 nailed every aspect of it downpat .

And I do agree that SEVEN WISHES should not get a video made as out of the 3 A-sides , this's the weak link while I find Zenryoku Fighter only a-ok for my liking .

Kis-My-Ft2's 6th album MUSIC COLOSSEUM will be released on 3rd May & all 3 A-sides will be included in the upcoming new album .

Ken Hirai - Boku no Kokoro o Tsukutte yo

CD Regular

CD Limited

CD + DVD

1) Boku no Kokoro o Tsukutte yo
2) YUMING (CD Only Regular Track)
3) Ho~tsu (CD Only Regular Track)

Boku no Kokoro o Tsukutte yo is Ken Hirai's 41st single & it was released on 1st March .

This's Ken's 1st single release of 2017 & prior to the physical release , the A-side was released digitally on 22nd Feb .

Boku no Kokoro o Tsukutte yo was used as the theme song for the Doraemon Nobita no Nankyoku Kachikouchi Dai Bouken movie that opened in Japan cinemas on 4th March .

This's the 1st time Ken provided a song to be used to promote an animated movie .

2 B-sides YUMING & Ho~tsu are included only in the CD Regular edition of the single .

The 2nd B-side Ho~tsu was used to promote the ads of credit card company Credit Saison .

For some odd reason , when I 1st heard YUMING , I thought it reminds me of Ken's 24th Bye My Melody as both songs have the same happy go lucky upbeat vibes .

Whereas for Ho~tsu , it's a very simplified piano driven ballad . I was surprised to hear children's voices that partially sang with Ken as normally this tends to be heard in the background but not this time round .

Ken Hirai's latest single , the resonant medium-tempo ballad Boku no Kokoro o Tsukutte yo was written in mind by drawing inspiration from the irreplaceable bond between Doraemon & Nobi Nobita .

The previous single Mahoutte Itte Ii Kana ? was just Ken singing alongside with an acoustic guitar . In this case for Boku no Kokoro o Tsukutte yo , it's Ken singing together with a piano .

As such overall on all Boku no Kokoro o Tsukutte yo felt considerably mellow & calm as compared to Ken's past single songs like Plus One & Sore Demo Shitai which saw Ken go into experimental music routes that he never ventured before .

I only wished that Boku no Kokoro o Tsukutte yo B-sides were more experimental as I think they sounded a bit safe for my liking . Other than that , it's another good single song added to Ken's ever growing music discography .

CD Review :: GRANRODEO - Pierrot Dancin'

CD

CD + DVD

1) Pierrot Dancin'
2) TRASH CANDY
3) Namida Bana
4) Kimi ni one way love
5) Nichijou Horizon
6) Owaranu Yume
7) Punky Funky Love [with FIRE HORNS]
8) Lovers High
9) Fake lover's true heart
10) FAT SHAPER
11) Shounen no Hate
12) Memories
13) UNDER THE SKY

Pierrot Dancin' is GRANRODEO's 7th album & it was released last month on 8th Feb .

The duo's last studio album release was 2014's Karma to Labyrinth . 4 singles & 2 B-sides are included in Pierrot Dancin' .

All songs in the album were written by vocalist KISHOW while all songs were composed by guitarist e-ZUKA .

Kicking things off in Pierrot Dancin' is the 1st album track that shares the same title as the album . Pierrot Dancin' (song) is also the only album track to get a video .

KISHOW sang Pierrot Dancin' (song) in the opening as acapella & then the track's melody changed to a full out aggressive no. which sets the tone on what to expect in the subsequent parts of Pierrot Dancin' (album) . You also can hear KISHOW's falsetto in the 2nd part of the song as well .

TRASH CANDY is GRANRODEO's 24th single & this was used as the opening theme song for the Bungo Stray Dogs anime .

Out of the 4 single songs in Pierrot Dancin' , TRASH CANDY is my favourite as GRANRODEO went all out in utilising lots of synthesisers . I normally don't like such songs but TRASH CANDY is an exception & it also has quite a dark gritty tone .

Namida Bana is the 2nd album track & it has a really cool Oriental feel introduction wise which carries on well throughout the entire song .

The next album track Kimi ni one way love is a lot more simplified in that it's a mid tempo fun upbeat song .

Nichijou Horizon was originally included as the 2nd B-side in GRANRODEO's 23rd single Memories .

Prior to hearing Pierrot Dancin' , I did not listen to any B-sides in GRANRODEO's past singles . I didn't quite like Memories but I enjoy Nichijou Horizon .

Owaranu Yume is 1 of 2 album songs that're ballads . This's also the longest song in the album . Frankly , GRANRODEO should do more ballads as Owaranu Yume is quite good despite the length , this I have no complaints over .

Punky Funky Love is GRANRODEO's 22nd single & this was used as the opening theme song for the Kuroko's Basketball anime .

In Pierrot Dancin' , this's tagged as Punky Funky Love [with FIRE HORNS] .

I like the original take of Punky Funky Love & the album version is interesting as it has a different melody which emphasised more on the funk aspect of the song .

Both versions are equally good & Punky Funky Love [with FIRE HORNS] has an edge or 2 over the single version .

Lovers High was originally included as the 1st B-side in GRANRODEO's 24th single TRASH CANDY .

Just like TRASH CANDY , Lovers High is also another synth driven song except it's less serious sounding & more groovy .

Fake lover's true heart & FAT SHAPER are the next 2 album tracks . Fake lover's true heart is 1 of my favourite album no.s as it's a really fun song .

Despite the questionable title , FAT SHAPER has great dynamics as the melody is very drums driven & strange as it's , this sounds like a very military influence no. .

Shounen no Hate is GRANRODEO's 25th single . This was used as the ending theme song for 2nd season of the Mobile Suit Gundam : Iron-Blooded Orphans anime .

Out of the 4 singles , Shounen no Hate is a mid tempo ballad & I like this a lot as it displays a more emotional mellow side of GRANRODEO .

Memories is GRANRODEO's 23rd single & this was used as the opening theme song for the Kuroko's Basketball anime .

Unlike the rest of the singles included in Pierrot Dancin' , Memories is actually my least favourite even though now I'm ok with it . Just that compared to the duo's past single songs , Memories had something missing in it (even though it's their best charting single to date) .

Concluding Pierrot Dancin' is UNDER THE SKY which's the 2nd ballad album track after Owaranu Yume .

UNDER THE SKY has a really dreamy feel & the only thing I don't like is when the song ended abruptly which's the same thing as what happened with Shounen no Hate . Other than that , it's a fitting song to wrap things up .

Overall , I have a lot of fun listening to GRANRODEO's latest album offering . This's the 1st review I wrote about them & I wanted to write about their past releases but I decided to start off with Pierrot Dancin' instead .

Compared to the duo's last album Karma to Labyrinth (which I did listened & I will write about it next) , Pierrot Dancin' on whole is a lot more fun , upbeat & uplifting . Some feel that this album has old school vibes which's not necessary a bad thing .

The 1 problem I had with Karma to Labyrinth was that its sound consistency was not there even though both the album & single songs were good . I don't have that problem with Pierrot Dancin' & I get nothing but good vibes in hearing the album .

The duo's 26th single Glorious days will be released on 22nd March & this was chosen to promote the Kuroko's Basketball LAST GAME movie that will open in Japan cinemas next Sat on 18th March .

On that note , Pierrot Dancin' is a record to check out if you're looking for some good 'ol Rock n Roll music to listen to .

Hey ! Say ! JUMP - OVER THE TOP

CD

CD + DVD A

CD + DVD B

OVER THE TOP is Hey ! Say ! JUMP's 19th single & it was released last month on 22nd Feb .

This's the group's 1st single release of 2017 & their 1st release in celebrating the group's 10th anniversary in the business .

The A-side was used as the opening theme song to promote the 2nd season of the Time Bokan 24 anime . It's the same anime that their 17th single Fantastic Time was used as its opening theme in promoting the 1st season of Time Bokan 24 .

OVER THE TOP once again demonstrates the group’s synchronicity with a dramatic dance . In addition , this energetic song conveys a powerful message of determination .

4 B-sides are available in total in the single . The 1st 2 songs are only available in the CD only edition of OVER THE TOP .

PARTY!! is an exciting electro house number while Our days is a medium tempo ballad .

Vanilla Ice is only available in the CD + DVD A edition of the single & this's described as a funk long song .

Funky Time is the last B-side & it's only found in the CD + DVD B edition of OVER THE TOP .

Unlike the other B-sides in OVER THE TOP , Funky Time has a video made & the last time the group made a video for a B-side song was for their 2011 / 7th single OVER (for Ai-ing -Aishiteru-) .

Hey ! Say ! JUMP kicks off their 10th anniversary year with OVER THE TOP which's overall a really fun entertaining release .

On 1st listen there's definitely music similarities between OVER THE TOP & Fantastic Time seeing that both songs are used to promote the Time Bokan 24 anime but OVER THE TOP still managed to stand out on its own . My favourite part of the song is the last part where they went all out .

The 4 B-sides in OVER THE TOP are equally good as well . PARTY!! & Vanilla Ice are the 2 standout tracks (I feel either 1 should have a video made instead of Funky Time) & I'm only a-ok towards Our days .

I didn't liked Funky Time at 1st but the video changed my perception on the song as it's a good contrast against the A-side .

All in all , OVER THE TOP is a solid single release & seeing that this year is Hey ! Say ! JUMP's 10th anniversary , I'm sure this will not be the last release coming from them .
