SO GOOD. Man, that blew me away. If that's what she can do in her first real performance ever under enormous pressure, then I'm looking forward to seeing her in 6 months from now. I'm impressed, way to go Wasamin!

All media coverage on solo artists from AKB48 always ignore Ohori Meshibe, even though she was in AKB48 at the time of her solo release. Just because she graduated doesn't mean she wasn't the first girl to get a solo single...

Dammit announcer.  Stop talking over her singing! XD  I wish we could hear more, but from what I did hear, I'm getting more and more excited to hear this release in full.  I wonder if she was singing live there?

I love it! :D  It's got a really nice rythm and of course Wasamin's vocals are superb.  It's funny really, before the announcement of this I didn't really know much about Wasamin.  I knew who she was but I'd never really paid much attention to her.  But I can now say that this has definitely changed that.  I wont overlook her anymore.

+1, I absolutely love it.

She's topping the Enka sales chart at Amazon:



First press of the regular version comes with:

<jafeijai> "application ticket for signed goods"

Probably Japan only.


Quote
<atskv9> wasa sounds like yukirin on the radio

+1. Singing voice is sorta similar too. Actually, I might even take it a step further and state they are even starting to look a like:



The eyes... the hair...

Either way, Wasamin is awesome. :twothumbs

Iwasa Misaki 2012.02 - Mujineki (Radio Rip Edit)

Full song - mixed 2 versions together. The intro from the short version with the full radio version to get rid of the talking at the beginning.

@YKT I thought you posted my version but I see now it's a different one. Forget about my previous comment if you read it. =P

EDIT: MP3 @ Mediafire: http://www.mediafire.com/?7npim1hvp45jay9

Wassamin :wub:
I just have to say I like this single. It make me feel like Wassamin in the PV..typical japanese landscape under the snow, feel a peacefull atmospher.
Really surprised me because I don't listen so much of enka^^°
I heard that the b-side is an enka cover of heavy rotation, I really look forward to hear it!

^ Wow, that is so much better than an Enka version of Heavy Rotation has any right to be.   :shocked

Seriously, it's a lot better than I expected; and certainly beats some remakes we've heard. *cough*Maria*cough*

I'm looking forward to hearing the whole track.

After listening to tons of Hebirote covers in various genres on YT over the years, I could easily imagine what an enka version could sound like. Wasamin's version sounds more ...professional? than I expected. The pace is higher and closer to the original than I expected and the instrumental track has more power than expected, which makes the song sound really full. I especially dig that they used similar guitars as in Mujin Eki.

Wasamin has this shit under control. That HR cover is pretty awesome. I hope this publicity she's getting translates into better sales.

The Mujin Eki PV is beautiful as expected.

And the Hebirote cover is pretty good too.  I didn't expect much from it and I figured that I'd most likely skip that track on the CD but I think I'll be listening to it a few times actually.  It really is quite good.

Thank you jafeijai for this youtube vidéo.
I said yesterday that I was looking forward to hear this hebirote enka version.all the night I was like.."maybe it's not a good idea to do it with hebirote.. :doh:" but finally..I like it! :twothumbs
Sounds little bit strange the first time because we only know the original version of AKB, but after the second time you feel that this version is good too..I think it's because Wassamin is doing this cover..she has alot of talent and I hope this single will have good sale.

^First press selling like hotcakes at CDJ, so order soon (:




#1 on Recochoku Enka Rankings  :twothumbs


Her single has a Ninki rating of 34.90, which would put her at a weekly #4th.

Competition:
Nagabuchi Tsuyoshi
CNBLUE
S/mileage
ClariS

However, those Ninki rating don't mean that much. I think we should be happy if she can make it into the weekly top 10.

I'm digging Tsubasa wo Kudasai  :twothumbs In fact, there is not a weak song on this single. Epic debut.


First day: #4

For reference, #3 - ClariS sold 10,023.

Let's fightingu for #3!  XD

S/mileage is #2 with 11,840 meaning it will be a close race for #2, #3 and #4  :panic:
