Toutoi is flumpool's 18th single & it was released last month on 26th Dec .
This single was released 9 months + since flumpool's previous single Last Call . Toutoi originally was supposed to be released on 27th Dec .
The covers & promo picture of Toutoi are illustrations that represent the world view of the song . The Toutoi video is like a drama & it stars actress/ex Momorio Clover Z Hayami Akari as a manga artist who faces challenges as she works on her manga , flumpool themselves do not appear in the video .
2 B-sides are included in Toutoi which were both released digitally prior to the single physical release .
To be continued... was released digitally last year on 4th Oct & it was used to promote the Infini-T Force anime .
On the other hand , WINNER was released digitally last year on 14th Sept & it was used to promote TBS's S☆ sports programme .
flumpool concluded 2017 with the release of 2 pretty solid singles .
On whole Toutoi is actually not bad as it kind of reminds me of EGG's Ubugoe cos both songs have quite a strong Folk sound .
This's 1 of the rare times that I like both B-sides on par if not a bit more than the A-side as I wasn't liking the B-sides of Last Call that much .
I hope flumpool will make a comeback soon as right now they're on hiatus as vocalist Ryuuta is currently recuperating due to problems with his voice once again & here's wishing Ryuuta a speedy recovery .
