Something I Want to Say

Hello and Welcome, and i know its a bit late but Happy new year. i know its been a very long while since i update this blog, but i feel like after what i said recently, i thought i need to make this post. now, a couple of days ago, in my most recent podcast -which you can see here- i said that i am no longer will be a fan of the AKB48 group. and yes, i do not making that up, i really am no longer a fan of the 48 group, but not for the reason that you might think. yes, a part of it is because of the clusterfuck that the 48 group is in right now, but that is not the only reason to why i no longer a fan, and i'm going to elaborate what i say on that episode here.
i've been a fan of the 48 group for a while now, if we count my JKT days, i'm already a fan since 2013, and being an AKB fan since 2014, most of it dedicated to HKT48.
But in 2016 something change, the group is not as enjoyable to watch as it used to. AKBingo is not as fun to watch as it used to, their singles start…

Hello and welcome to another post, this time we're going to talk about the new Nogizaka46 single Jikochuu de Ikou. i know its a bit late, i have to wait for the Spotify version of the audio to be released before i can make this, so yeah that's my excuse. anyway enough of the excuses, let's just get to it.

Jikochuu de Ikou (Senbatsu)



As usual, we're going to start on the main song. Saito Asuka's 2nd solo center (3rd overall) and its another summer song. after the absolutely brilliant Hadashi de Summer in 2016, Asuka finally center the summer song of 2018, and its pretty alright to be honest. ok, its not anywhere near as good as Hadashi de Summer, but its still pretty good, i like it, i like the summer rock feel to it, the chorus is pretty good, a solid song i have to say.
The MV is also very good, they filmed it in Vietnam. i think for the most part it looks great, i can tell that a lot of the shot in it was taken in one take so they can get the best reaction possib…
