Itsuka no, Ikutsuka no Kimi to no Sekai (いつかの, いくつかのきみとのせかい)

I was so fascinated with this song once the opening aired and I’m glad it follow a calmer route than the previous 2. I feel some “Que sera sera” vibes all over the song but having a more anison sound, but the cheerful sound makes up for it. I love the piano at the beginning and after finishing the chorus. About towana I think she does her job great as well, because she keeps me interested all the way, which has worked in her previous singles as well. But the way they handled the middle section was really cool building more tension (at least for me) and mixing some dude’s voice as well at some parts like a type of conversation. This song works even better if you see the opening because the colors of the characters and the way they are shown makes it even better. This was another amazing song.

ARE YOU SLEEPING?

Considering that all B-sides have been quite different I knew this was going to happen as well. But I didn’t know this was going to be slower, but the way they manage the song with the arrangement was really cool at the verses because the sound at the back was making the song a little creepy and working really good with how towana was singing, but the chorus was really happier and kinda ruined the mood, but still safe. But one of the good things about this song is that it sounds like something like Spangle Call Lilli Line would do in one of their eras and I think that’s what made me like the song more. The song being so different from what they do normally really made me glad they try different things sometimes, but I’m still unsure of the chorus.

I was trying to guess what it will sound this one, but apparently they made the bass more predominant for the song and change the arrangement but keeping the same rhythm of towana’s vocals. I’m not that sure about certain parts because the bass doesn’t fit the sound it should and only some parts worked correctly for me. The song tried something different at the middle section but still I’m not fond of this, and I’ll stick with the original.


Is it worth listening? Yes

I’m glad they return with another good single and tied to Bokura Minna Kawaisou, the A-side was really cool and colorful and playful as well and keeping fhána’s sound. Meanwhile the B-side was quite different from their other stuff and in general it worked for me, but the remix was a little meh and made me appreciate more the original one.
