The only thing I have reservations for is that she's using her Ivy voice here. I don't know how to describe it. It sounds raw at times, e.g. "Tatta hitotsuu moshi negai gaaaa" - in the bold part she sounds...struggling to be on pitch. And I noticed this repeated several times in the preview as well. Raw, is probably a good way to describe it. It would be good if she touches up on her voice for the final mix but somehow I have a feeling that that's not gonna happen :s (but it happened before in her old songs, i.e. STEP you, About You, GREEN, Moments - they're all different from their CM versions)
Yup, I agree about that raw-ness, I think she needs to work on her technique for that part, don't think its going to be good for her voice in a long run.
It sounds like a good song but the music is abit cheap I think, for a movie like this, I feel they should have went with more orchestra sounds to get the real impact.

There's definitely an orchestral backing here.

Lots of strings/piano/horns going on.

Not really my type of ballad if the whole song is like that, but we'll see.

I'm happy that it reminds me a little of older ayu, and I'm also happy that it seems like she's pushing her vocals a little bit. I mean, I liked that ayu tone. She's played it really safe for the last few years, and I think that was smart, but. I still always miss her old higher pitched vocals, even if she wasn't perfect with them.

Finally, she's on the right track again. The most promising thing she's released in ages, especially regarding ballads.

Also, her voice sounds very controlled.
