review ?? it is. although i won’t really say much 😀

First, Mami Kawada with L’Oiseau Bleu. I don’t know how much i should blame C.G mix for composing and arranging such plain song for Mami. He simply makes Mami’s vocal become dull. The song itself is rather boring. it’s never been my favorite since the preview.

and then, there’s KOTOKO with snIpe. Honestly, this is my favorite song ever since i heard the preview. Maiko Iuchi did a good job in composing and arranging this song. it fits KOTOKO well. it’s BRILLIANT !! i don’t care if they say Maiko Iuchi is not as talented as the other I’ve Sound Creator, but you can see how talented she is here !! xD xD

next, Paranoia by Eiko Shimamiya. i don’t really like it when i heard the preview (i admitted that it’s good song, though). however, everything’s change since i listened to the full version. It’s GREAT !! Kazuya Takase and Eiko-sensei Combi is really great x3 x3

now… another composition by C.G mix, Kara no Tsubomi by MELL. i loved the preview, but not the full version. there’s something unexplainable that cause it. it’s good to see Takeshi Hoshino, who is a guitarist for Mami’s live tour, arranged this song along with C.G mix. will he be another arranger like Takeshi Ozaki ?? we’ll wait for it =3

last song, Kaori Utatsuki with end of refrain ~Chiisana Hajimari~. it’s a mid-tempo ballad just like L’Oiseau Bleu, but it’s far better. it’s NakaZaki Combi that we love so much x3 x3 i love the strings used and combined with Ozaki-san’s guitar play… it’s AWESOME x3 x3 maybe it’s not only Mami who can produce good songs when combined with NakaZaki Combi, but Kaorin might do, too 😀 especially when Kaorin has improved this much =3

last words… if i should list from the most favorite to the less favorite, it would be like this:

1. snIpe – KOTOKO
2. end of refrain ~Chiisana Hajimari~ – Kaori Utatsuki
3. Paranoia – Eiko Shimamiya
4. Kara no Tsubomi – MELL
5. L’Oiseau Bleu – Mami Kawada

it’s rare to see me putting Mami’s song on the bottom of the list, isn’t it ?? but it’s the truth. L’Oiseau Bleu is so boring. while about Paranoia and end of refrain… well, it’s actually on the same rank, but i put Kaorin on no.2 since i like her more than Eiko-sensei 😛 sorry Eiko-sensei, your song is good, too x3 x3

    “it’s not only Mami who can produce good songs when combined with NakaZaki Combi, but Kaorin might do, too especially when Kaorin has improved this much =3”

    well MELL too w/ Two face. 😀

    Well all of the songs are really nice but we can safely say that not all songs are meant to be upbeat. Out of those 5 songs, there should be at least 1 or 2 ballad (be it midtempo or slow) on them but I don’t understand why give Mami the ballad one. ~_~

    Aww I think you already saw my ranking in the LJ community nee? Haha. But oh well here’s my ranking:

    1. Paranoia
    2. Kara no Tsubomi (although the start kinda reminds of KOTOKO’s Sasakure.)
    3. snIpe
    4. end of refrain ~Chiisana Hajimari~
    5. L’Oiseau bleu

    Oh and btw, I’m currently DL’ing L’Oiseau bleu and I’ll be uploading that to YT after I downloading it. But still, no Kara no Tsubomi PV. TT__TT

  2. April 1, 2009 at 9:49 PM

    “but I don’t understand why give Mami the ballad one. ~_~”

    because no one wants ballad ?? xD xD *gets kicked*

    talking about Kara no Tsubomi, i only like the chorus part. maybe that’s the reason i love the preview and not the full version xD xD

    “Oh and btw, I’m currently DL’ing L’Oiseau bleu and I’ll be uploading that to YT after I downloading it. But still, no Kara no Tsubomi PV. TT__TT”

    HEHHH ?!??!! don’t forget to put it in Mediafire, too freedd xP xP HQ PV ?! DO WANT !!! x3 *gets kicked by fred*

  3. April 1, 2009 at 11:14 PM

    Yes yes just like the other PVs I uploaded, I’ll both upload them to YT and Mediafire. 😀

    “because no one wants ballad ?? xD xD *gets kicked*”

    Maybe. But who wants to have a cheesy ballad when she’s rockin’ with both rock and techno? o.O Or maybe Mami’s been on the spotlight and they want to focus and put the others in the same spotlight for now so that they won’t forget that there are actually 4 other I’ve Sound girls other than Mami. XDDD *MAJOR BRICKING BY OTHER I’VE SOUND FANS*

  4. April 1, 2009 at 11:19 PM


    i wonder what will happen to you if i’m not Mami’s fans either xD xD

    well, indeed, Mami’s really on the spotlight lately… aside from MELL.

    anyway fred, have you got the booklet ?? if not, i will upload it for you… but not now =.=;;

    i’m uploading Paranoia (approx. 26MB) since around half hour ago and… it’s just 50% xP

  5. April 2, 2009 at 3:30 PM

    I do want the scans!! XDD if you can, please upload them!! XDDD;; But you can upload them later when everything’s settled. ^__^

    Well it’s just so happened that we we’re both big fans of Mami so I really don’t know what will happen if you’re not. xP *totally bricked* |D;;

  6. April 2, 2009 at 3:48 PM

    okay, i’ll upload it ASAP, possibly tonight or tomorrow night or even on sunday since sunday is my only free time. xD xD

    and just pray that my stupid ISP, which happened to have the name SPEEDY but the connection is SLOWLY, won’t disconnect all the time -_-;;

    well, it seems that the booklet scan is rather hard to find and so far, i only see this scan available in torrent (which i downloaded). the scans’ file size is around 33MB. it’s complete from the CD Box booklet to each singles and dvd booklets =3

    and… the contents of the CD box booklet are interesting !! x3 it’s unfortunate that i can’t read japanese so i can only guess what they say in the interview T-T

  7. April 2, 2009 at 9:00 PM

    Well it’s okay. We’re both suffering from slow DL’s. Kara no Tsubomi PV is DL’ing slowly. >,>; Thanks to the uploader that he (or she?!) uploaded it in shitty jsharer.com again. o.O’

    Wow now I’m interested in seeing the scans. x3 So just inform me when you’ve uploaded them and take your time. ^_^ And don’t worry, I can only read hiragana and katakana and some kanji but not all. And the worst of all, I can slightly understand Japanese. >.<

  8. April 2, 2009 at 9:28 PM

    at least your connection is not disconnecting, isn’t it ??

    okay, i’m uploading the booklet first and i’ll put the link above with the review =3

    well, at least some of what i can read from the booklet is what MELL said when she’s telling something about/to Mami: “Watashi no Onee-san. (laugh)” xD it’s so hillarious !! don’t know what she actually mean x3

  9. April 3, 2009 at 3:34 PM

    I think she (MELL) just made herself younger than Mami that’s why she laughed. xD because “Onee-san” means older sister. xP Well it’s pretty obvious that MELL’s older than Mami. xD

    Actually, this is the second time I’m downloading Kara no Tsubomi PV because aside from being slow, my first DL kinda “died out” and once it did, there’s no chance of getting it “alive” so I’m DL’ing it again. x__X That’s why I hate f*cking jsharer — it pisses you off at the wrong turn. It was already 50MB (57MB total size) when it died out. ~_~

  10. April 3, 2009 at 3:38 PM

    *lol* yeah i know onee-san means older sister =3

    well, everyone call Mami using “-chan”… doesn’t it means she’s the youngest between Love Planet 5 ?? xD

  11. April 4, 2009 at 12:17 AM

    That I really can’t confim but there’s a high possibility that Mami is the youngest among them. x3 Then Kaorin, Kotoko, Mell and Eiko. XD

    Wow, you actually bought the whole boxset??? expensiveeeeee~~~~~

    I’m interested to watch the suicidal emo movie! Actually I can take a pretty good guess why they made the movie about suicide. With a title like “departed to the future”, they don’t have much choice xDDD

    Actually, I think Kaori looks younger to me. It’s really hard to tell if comparing the five girls, but I would guess Mami’s about 29-32 this year.
    And, chillax, dude. Hold back the expletives. I once was downloading an anime episode and it was 99% when it failed.

  13. April 4, 2009 at 9:33 PM

    there’s no way i’m gonna buy it, grace 😛 i only downloaded the FLAC version via torrent 😛

    although i do have abit of feeling of guilt since the boxset isn’t sold well xD xD

    well, i ever thought that Mami and Kaorin are probably on the same age… but… well, if they’re at the same age (born on the same year), then Mami would be older than Kaorin *lol*

    about the movie… well… watch this:

    it seems that “MAMI” is the first one to commit suicide. that’s why she’s left out in the group scene…
    and that might also be the reason why “MAMI” was introduced first in the character introduction 😀

    Oh. Was misled by what you meant by “finally got my own copy” xD

    I’m hoping either of you two kept a collection of mami kawada song downloads somewhere online…because my computer and handphone memory card crashed one after another, all my files are gone, including all the mami kawada songs. It would really suck to go find them all again, especially the non-anime, older songs. Please help~ T_T

  15. April 5, 2009 at 7:36 PM

    *lol* sorry for misleading you x3

    wew… i’ll try =.=;;

    but don’t hope too much since my upload speed is too… slow Y-Y

  16. April 6, 2009 at 8:11 AM

    As for me, I’m not that interested to watch the movie. *splat*

    Well I could help you with the Mami Kawada songs. xD It would be imbecile of me as a fan if my collection is not complete. XD *jokes around*

  17. April 6, 2009 at 7:51 PM

    *lol* i’m starting to interested in the movie =3

    this sucks… i’m also a MAMI fan, but her song is… well… is BORING! BO~RING~! DX i can’t believe it; i truly love her when it comes to her ‘Masterpiece’ single! they should’ve included ‘Masterpiece’ in this CD Box, too! aaaahhh~! DX

  19. 19 seirenXasakura
    April 30, 2009 at 11:36 PM

    sou! =D i love RIDEBACK (MELL) and Naraku no Hana (Eiko) so why don’t they include in the CD Box too? TT_TT

    April 30, 2009 at 11:41 PM

    or… shouldn’t it be that way? o_O

  21. May 1, 2009 at 8:48 AM

    *lol* it IS boring, but i grew to like it after hearing it “thousand” times. xD xD

    about including masterpiece, RIDEBACK, and Naraku no Hana is obviously impossible. since this box is just a 10th anniversary, not a best compilation, which i believe there won’t be any compilation again as long as I’ve Sound is still under Geneon.

    and, FYI, shitty Geneon even goes so far as releasing the standalone version of Mami’s L’Oiseau bleu single. if it don’t have a far better b-side track, this single will surely be flopped.

    I need to buy the DVD

  23. September 19, 2009 at 5:24 AM

    Damn….looks like i have alot of necks to break……I come from Youtube and i have a page dedicated to THE ILLUSTRIUS I’VE GODDESS KOTOKO. There is only one crown and she has it!
    Yes, KOTOKO had a bit of falling down but now she is back! What can you say of Snipe, 蒼-iconoclast or Daily Daily dream? Her part in the Budokan live show, 2005 and 2009! KOTOKO has a radio show with almost 300 episodes!She had Mami in her radio show suporting Mami. Now she will release her 4’th album, i want to see what you have to say then…..
    I know this blog for some time, i know you hate KOTOKO for wath Mami can’t be…..but understand…Mami can be just Mami, Kotoko can be all the other singers and far better, she IS the goddess, she has that superstar statute.

  24. September 19, 2009 at 10:09 AM

    ah Welcome to my blog, Maiku-san 😀

    haha… I don’t really hate KOTOKO… It’s just that… she is overworking and she has to, at the very least, take some rest ~_~

  25. September 19, 2009 at 1:15 PM

    I didn’t thought to see my comment posted, i just wanted to send my opinion. But one thing atracted my atention, who bought the Budokan 2009 DVD set, how and from where?

  26. September 19, 2009 at 4:49 PM

    some guys from aibublog bought it… usually via CDJapan or Amazon.
