Why didn’t any of the current fans tell me this?

“Koi wo suru ni wa ososugi demo / asette nanka inai no yo” (“Although I’ve been slow to fall in love / I’m in no hurry.“)
Especially this lyric. So heartrending and painful.

Especially when it comes after the interlude. That’s the best part. I didn’t like the song at first for some reason, but now I just love it.

Tsunku’s songs always make you go “oh, I see, it’s just another one of your typical Tsunku songs,” and you forget about it entirely… until it comes back to bite you in the ass. Then you’ll be hitting yourself, going “why didn’t I realize how great this song was sooner…?!“

Do you guys mind if I just listen to ENSKY?!

I like the song but honestly, the dance is just weird. (laughs)
33: 名無し募集中。。。 2016/11/01(火) 23:39:02.63 0.net
For me, the lightness of that weird dance and those outfits that only remind me of Rumando only amplify the sadness of the song for me.

It’s a good idea to watch Sayashi’s final Budokan concert and just have a good cry.

People were going crazy over Utakata and Sexy Cat, so why didn’t anyone say anything about ENDLESS SKY? Or is it just that I didn’t notice? I’ve listened to the song tens of times even just today.
13: 名無し募集中。。。 2016/11/01(火) 23:33:18.69 0.net
Um, it was already considered pretty much legendary even at Sayashi’s Budokan concert.
14: 名無し募集中。。。 2016/11/01(火) 23:34:05.53 0.net
People were pretty crazy about it last year.
15: 名無し募集中。。。 2016/11/01(火) 23:34:18.42 0.net
But it’s not like ENDLESS SKY is an amazing song by itself though, is it? It’s just that everyone got hooked on it because the performance of it at Budokan was so awesome. That really was an amazing concert.

Though this is just pure conjecture, I think since Sayashi’s graduation came so suddenly — which left them with not a lot of time to prepare — they pretty much let Tsunku have complete freedom with this song.

H!P has had lots of graduation songs throughout its history, but I love ENDLESS SKY most.

Tsumetai Kaze / ENSKY / OaO are all amazing songs.

You could really sense Terada’s parental love in all three.

I want a Japanese version of OaO.

No one’s mentioned it yet, but I love the instrumental.

ENSKY isn’t very Tsunku-like. It doesn’t have anything that makes it addictive. It just feels like they decided to release a throwaway with this song.
183: 名無し募集中。。。 2016/11/02(水) 00:08:56.38 0.net
This song, if anything, has one of those very “H!P-like” melodies that they’ve always had.
36: 名無しさん募集中。。。 2016/11/01(火) 23:39:49.95 0.net
It sort of feels like Ai Araba or Seishun Collection in a way. You only later realize what was good about it.
39: 名無し募集中。。。 2016/11/01(火) 23:41:05.03 0.net
And songs like that are essential. Sure, that initial impact and explosiveness is important, too, but I think the reason H!P has become such a long-lasting thing is because they have songs whose greatness you realize only with the passage of time.

I love the interlude.

I still remember how the members one after the other were breaking down crying at Budokan…

But do you guys know of another legendary song called Egao no Kimi wa Taiyou sa?
59: 名無し募集中。。。 2016/11/01(火) 23:44:44.07 0.net
The Vision is an even greater song.

I don’t care what anyone else says — for me it’s all about Katasumi.

“Naku wake nai desho / naku hazu ga nai / jibun de eranda mirai dakara” (“there’s not a chance I would cry / there’s no reason to / because this is the future I’ve chosen for myself.“)
Just seeing Sayashi singing this, desperately trying not to cry… that already makes it the best possible version of ENDLESS SKY there could ever be.

I think both Tsumekaze and ENSKY will become songs I’m always reminded of around this time of the year.

I finally get what was so good about the 14 Message album. I now love it. I’m happy they’re doing songs off it on tour nowadays.

Although they’re all quite simple, Tsunku has released a lot of great songs this year.

I love this song. I’m always reminded of Sayashi’s graduation when I listen to it.
3. カラフル名無しさん 2016年11月02日 23:10 ID:nihwQUmE0
ENSKY and Vision are both songs that, when I listen to them, I suddenly notice that I’m crying.
8. カラフル名無しさん 2016年11月03日 01:33 ID:ZD4x5wnw0
I had a couple of non-wota people listen to this song and they both said they loved the lyrics. I cried when listening to this song later on. It really was all about Sayashi.
12. カラフル名無しさん 2016年11月05日 11:54 ID:NACphd.s0
This song really tugs at the heartstrings. Wouldn’t this also be a good song for graduation events at school? Like, as a song to get everyone headed for their future paths.

The lyrics are so good.
“Shinchou ga nobita sono wari ni, kokoro no nayami wa dou na no ka na?” (“While I have grown taller, what’s happened with the worries I carry with me?“)
“Joshitachi no zenbu mieru wake mo nai shi, miseru wake mo nai shi” (“You can’t see everything about women, and it’s not like we would show you either.“)
“Chiisana koro homerareta koto ima mo munennaka takaramono da yo” (“I still treasure within my heart the praises I received when I was younger.“)
“Ichininmae ni natta you na ki de ita kara ouhei na taido muishiki ni shiteta wa” (“I felt like I’d become an adult, so I found myself unconsciously being arrogant towards others.“)
“Koi wo suru ni wa ososugi demo asette nanka inai no yo” (“Although I’ve been slow to fall in love, I’m in no hurry.“)
I ended up typing out pretty much all of it, but it’s all stuff that people go through when they’re young. It pretty much applies to every type of person out there. If it was anyone else, you could take just the keywords from these lyrics and make it into four or five separate songs. But Tsunku threw all those topics in there while also keeping it consistent, and that’s what makes him so amazing. Isn’t that exactly the kind of thing one would mean when they’re talking about “good lyrics“?
