When it comes to beautiful women, you can’t not mention Shiba-chan.

Shiba-chan is beautiful, but somehow she also has that “variety TV feeling” about her…

This face combined with that super sweet voice of hers…
I can’t get enough of Shiba-chan.
Henkka: I have to say that in my mind that one 3rd generation Tanpopo single really is a criminally underrated classic. You have that trademark H!P cheesiness with the adorably bad rapping in the verse, then the pre-chorus perks up its head and you’re sort of going “oh…?,” and then that magical chorus. To me, it has that same melancholic wistfulness of “Peanut Butter Jelly Love,” only condensed into a single chorus. And who could forget Tsunku♂’s hopelessly romantic lyrics?
I want mutual love
I want us to love each other exactly the same amount
And if we love each other mutually,
Then there’s nothing to be afraid of
Even if we lose our way
Let’s link our arms and go together
And since we love each other mutually,
I want you to know my weaknesses, too
Listen: I love you, I really love you, so…
I want us to be together forever
And while I don’t wish to downplay the Boy’s amazing songwriting, I do think a large part of the magic with this one lies in its fantastic arrangement. Nagai Rui takes Tsunku♂’s composition to new heights with those “aaahs” and “ooohs” and the Brian May-esque guitar wailing. It took a while for it to grow on me back in the day, but I’m telling you: I think this is a really fucking good song.
Agreed on “Be Happy.” Wonderful pure pop. In fact, *all* Tanpopo generations have been blessed with really good singles. Hell, the opening of “Last Kiss” has been my ringtone for years. (Sadly, virtually no one recognizes it.)
“Last Kiss” is probably my favorite from the 1st gen.
The interesting thing is I also like “Motto” from the 1st gent too. =)
“It took a while for it to grow on me back in the day, but I’m telling you: I think this is a really fucking good song.” I had a similar experience. One of those songs that didn’t immediately stand out, then at some point it comes up in my H!P playlist on shuffle and blows me away.
BE HAPPY 恋のやじろべえ is literally my favorite Tanpopo song. The song and the portion of the dance where they wave their arms.
Ahhh, such a nostalgic face, been awhile since I saw a Melon Kinenbi member.. So underrated for a group that gave us one of the best songs in H!P history “This is Unmei”… Think I’m gonna go watch some old Utaban episodes now, they were hilarious back then, so naturally talented at variety
Are you implying Maria isn’t amazingly beautiful?
I know this will sound trite, but it’s 100% truth.
During the Q&A session at the anime convention in New York last week, Maria actually “glowed”. I always thought that description could only apply if you were talking about old 50’s movie stars, but it honestly fits Maria so well. I actually felt my pupils enlarge as I was staring at her, and she isn’t even my oshi.
So yeah… Maria is something more than stunning, surely…
I know. I was there :)
I’m relieved I’m not the only one who noticed this! Again, perhaps trite, but: here comes Morning Musume out from the fire exit. Everyone sits down and that awful host starts the Q&A. I’m looking for Ishida and Sato because, hey, why do I need a reason to look for two beautiful women? Then all of a sudden my eyes are drawn up and to the left… and there’s Makino, emitting this lovely golden aura about her, 10,000,000 watt smile and all. It was enchanting. Hard to forget, too…
I really love BE HAPPY 恋のやじろべえ. But sometimes I wonder if it’s the melody I love or just those chunky shoes the girls wear in the PV. :D
Nothing but love for Shibata and Melon Kinenbi <3 Two of my top 10 H!P songs are Melon Kinenbi singles. So awesome and so underrated
