There honestly hasn’t been much in the way of relevant I’ve news. Oh, I could say something about KOTOKO’s fan club, her revamped website, and her Short Circuit show with Kaori in Taiwan. I could have also said something about how Mami has her own fan club, and didn’t even wait a month before announcing a fan club-only mini-tour. But it’s nothing that pertains to 99% of the readers here, I bet.
First impressions on the Special Life single:
Special Life! itself, I’ve already semi-reviewed, nothing has changed.
Capriccio is definitely a Maiko Iuchi song, so if you hate her arrangements, you probably won’t like this song, if you’re a fanboy, this will be great, and if you’re kind of ambivalent like I am, you’ll just wish there was something more. It’s not that bad of a song, really, but like so many of her recent slower songs, it’s not as soft and more energetic as it should. Still, it’s an improvement on the first track.
As for the PV, I guess I was right. It IS “KOTOKO goes to the tropics – making of.” I just wish I wasn’t right…
