That arrangement is STUNNING! She kinda went very light and airy for the first intro bits!

oh wow the ending is magical!! I can't believe there'll be a visual to match this...

Deep snow 11th March 2021 03:17 PM

wait holy shit!!! is the song officially released or is this a leak?

truehappiness 11th March 2021 03:18 PM

It came out officially at midnight in a lot of places! PV probably later today.

The video will also be on some morning shows probably... there's two listings for her in the morning news!



Probably mezamashi too!

listening to it right now. oh my god. it's perfection.

!Lawi! 11th March 2021 03:20 PM

Just finished my first listen and I was so moved, I don't think I've enjoyed one of her ballads so much since Walk!

I said it already but I am in love with the arrangement, and I think the progression is really well managed. Such a great addition to her discography!

Deep snow 11th March 2021 03:22 PM

the ending with the choir. what a climax. I got goosebumps all over.

koumori 11th March 2021 03:23 PM

Absolutely perfect!!

errikkutrancex 11th March 2021 03:30 PM

a little disappointed by this version of Haru yoi koi... A taste of "too much" : her live performancewas really better because simple, perfect vocal.

truehappiness 11th March 2021 03:44 PM

Not too long from now!

kendelle 11th March 2021 03:47 PM

maxikot 11th March 2021 03:48 PM

Omg this is making my day!

Evan Odinson 11th March 2021 03:49 PM

A perfect rendition of this classic, loved it!

Love the arrangements. Glad they put some effort on them and not over relying on cheap synth sounds. It feels rich.

Her voice sounds different there. I have to say I'm not fond of how it comes especially during the first part. Itís the thing I noticed immediately. It sounds really nasal, almost ęliveĽ (a recent one when she tries to sound sweet but it ends artificial, like she restrains herself adopting an unnatural tone). I donít know how to describe it better. Like itís not a bad thing in itself but I prefer the voice weíve been used to on CD. Even her 2018 one. Hope I will get used to it if itís any indication of the way she will sing.

Other than that itís a really beautiful song, quite happy with the arrangements. Also like how gentle she sings even when the song is coming to the end with the choir and all. It reminds me of the way she sings on Secret. I absolutely love how she sounds on it. Wish she could have recreated that feeling.

omg the ending gave me so goosebumps!!! It's sooo epic!!
i too do feel she was restricting herself in the beginning. but I guess she really wants to control her vocals
