think that KOTOKO is slowly loosing her spark since graduating from I’VE. There aren’t
any differences from all the other Anime-Singers in her Music now...
But as for
I’VE in general, I really miss the days when we got a Single or at least an
Eroge Song from the girls at least every two month. Now with KOTOKO’s and Eiko’s
graduation and MELL’s one and a half year illness, we only can wait for Mami
Singles and half-ass produced Singles from LSP.
wished that after the loss of almost every strong Utahime, it would be Kaoris
time to shine, but they still trade her like she’s not there. It must be
really frustrating for her to be in the buisness for 11 years now, and
everything you’ve got were 2 major Singles (not counting “End of refrain”) and
one major Mini Album. It seems
that Geneon isn’t interested in her at all, they seem to be more interested in signing
new Artists like Maon Kurosaki, Ray, Nagi Yanagi and let them sing I’VE
produced Songs that would perfectly fit Kaoris Voice...And the
Producers seem to have lost any hope in advancing her career as well. Yes, Kaori
still doesn’t have any stage present, she doesn’t show any personality when
speaking to the crowd on concerts and her Voice is thin as air, but I still
think it is unfair treating her like that after all those years...
hardest thing for me is that I really miss the dark/mysterious I’VE songs.
Tracks like Higurashi..., KILL, Real Onigokko, all the Songs Eiko, MELL and
KOTOKO used to sing. There are
no Girls left that could sing those Tracks. Kaori, of cause not, Mami never did
those Tracks as well, and from the LSP girls only Nami would be making a good “mysterious
girl” but she’s still too inexperienced to give us a believable performance,
when singing those Songs...
But now I’m
really waiting for Mamis new Album, I really hope we will get some surprising
Tracks on there!
