Notwithstanding the lack of creativity in concocting the titles for its songs, H!P has done well yet again with the latest single of C-ute, Kimi wa Jitensha wa Densha de Kitaku. Why? One word: Airi!
Airi is the star in the main version of the song (supposedly there’ll be one for each C-ute member), and she STILL gets a cool solo version. Another good news from all this is that H!P really is moving to the girls singing on their own in their respective versions, a trend started by Buono!’s Hatsukoi Cider.
It seems the solo version thing is still in its experimental stages, though, because the ones released for C-ute’s Kimi wa Jitensha Watashi wa Densha de Kitaku greatly vary from one another. Yajima Maimi gets a traditional one shot on a plain static backdrop, Nakami Saki receives the Maimai treatment (she moves around in her music video, like what Mai does in her solo song, Yuke! Genki-kun), while Airi does a “Train Lip Version” (lip version on a train – go figure).
Or maybe it’s going to be like this for subsequent releases? I mean, a unique version for every girl instead of them just singing their parts in front of the camera? I doubt anyone would complain if that’s the case.
Turns out that H!P will actually be releasing THIRTY versions of this song. That’s right, THIRTY!
Here’s the newest one for Airi:
Another Airi version!
Also, because I like Airi so much in this. Sakura Chirari under the sakura chirari!
