Oh yes! Been waiting for that Music Fair performance ever since I saw the preview caps of it. Thanks Amplifier and YKT!

Mayuyu did well dancing AND singing to the song live! She seemed a little nervous but heck, this is her first solo single after all. I'm looping this video for sure! :heart: :heart: :heart:

Thanks for finally putting the vids up. Her live voice wasn't so bad. I could hear a tone of nervousness, but I can't blame her. It's one of the first few times she sang this live xD The dancing covered it up! I can't say anything bad about it because I can't sing myself  :nervous Great performance overall! :twothumbs

Ohhh I hear and see a piano in there. I'll try learning it on the piano when sheet music is released just like what I did for Ue Kara Mariko and Valentine Kiss :wub:

From the preview clips, I'm liking 新宿優等生 (Regular Ed) the most so far. It has a "cool" sound which is totally right up my alley. Really glad I ordered the Regular Ed too. And then there's サバの缶詰 (Type C) which I took an immediate liking to ever since I heard it on Saba Doll. Enka + Mayuyu's low voice = Pure WIN.

Mayuyu's voice is too heavily processed in マユユロイド (Type B) until she sounds like a Vocaloid. Probably my least favourite song of the bunch. It's a cute number but I'd like to hear less autotune.

The other tracks sound like pretty standard idol pop fare which will possibly grow on me after a while. The title track Synchro Tokimeki still has the highest replay value. (I'm still looping Mayuyu's Music Fair live :strawberry:)

NINKI ratings for the week of 27/2~4/3/2012



Albums:

01 179.90 Ikimonogakari - NEWTRAL
02 41.30 U-KISS - A Shared Dream
03 25.60 Hirahara Ayaka - Doki!
04 24.10 Crazy Ken Band - ITALIAN GARDEN
05 23.60 Chihara Minori - D-Formation
06 21.80 Do As Infinity - TIME MACHINE
07 21.40 GARNET CROW - GOODBYE LONELY ~Bside collection~
08 20.50 Tommy february6 & Tommy heavenly6 - FEBRUARY & HEAVENLY
09 15.90 POLYSICS - 15th P
10 14.70 ISSA X SoulJa - ISM

Singles:

01 111.10 Yamashita Tomohisa - Ai, Texas
02 100.70 Watanabe Mayu - Synchro Tokimeki

03 50.50 U-KISS - Forbidden Love
04 47.20 TOKIO - Haneda Kuko no Kibo / KIBOU
05 43.20 T-ARA - Roly-Poly (Japanese Ver.)
06 36.40 GReeeeN - Misenai Namida wa, Kitto Itsuka
07 28.00 NIGHTMARE - mimic
08 26.70 FLOWER - SAKURA Regret
09 21.60 Secret - Korekurai no Sayonara
10 18.50 BONNIE PINK - Tsumetai Ame

Note 1:

The NINKI ratings are the results of a POLL conducted by Oricon indicating degree of interest/degree of purchase intention in an upcoming release. Although the ratings are never a true reflection of sales, it does give a strong prediction about where the single/album will place in terms of popularity amongst the Japanese public. However, they are NOT an indication of how it will perform in terms of chart positioning and total sales for the week.

Note 2:

According to Oricon's note under the NINKI page, Oricon researches about 870,000 of its members by random sampling of 400 members in their 10s until 40s. 50 men and 50 women are chosen randomly to participate in each age group. (However, some popular artists have had NINKI exceeding 500, so we can only assume that Oricon has extended the polling to around 600/700 people now.)



Not surprised at Ikimonogakari getting no.1 next week, so go Iki! Only hoping that acts like Do As Infinity, Tommy february6/heavenly6, TOKIO, GReeeeN and FLOWER would surpass their NINKI. Also, it'd be interesting to see who gets the no.1 single as I think that both Yamapi and Mayuyu will battle it out.

Mayuyu's voice is too heavily processed in マユユロイド (Type B) until she sounds like a Vocaloid.

The song's name in romaji is literally Mayuyuloid, the goal of the song is to pretty much make her voice very Vocaloid-like. I like it, it's showing her Cyborg Girl side again. :twothumbs
And the NINKI ratings are just more proof that Mayu's solo debut would be a complete success. There's barely a difference between Top 1 and 2, which is a very small 0.40. :lol:
I hope I can get my dad or my brother who are both in Japan to buy Type B and Regular Edition for me. My birthday's coming soon. :wub:

Thanks for the clarification! Now the Vocaloid-esque voice makes sense although I still prefer Mayuyu's original voice. But I can't really judge the song till I've heard the full version. It being a Mayuyu solo means there's a high chance I'd end up looping it at some point :heart:

The NINKI ratings are a positive sign. May Synchro Tokimeki enjoy splendid sales so that Mayuyu will get to release more solo singles!

AKB48's Mayu Watanabe's Solo Debut Streamed on Ustream

Singer to perform 1st solo single "Synchro Tokimeki" on live show on February 29

AKB48 Team B member and self-professed anime fan Mayu Watanabe (nicknamed "Mayuyu") will stream a live performance of her solo debut single "Synchro Tokimeki" on Ustream on February 29 at 6:45 p.m. in Japan (4:45 a.m. EST). Watanabe will hold a press conference starting at 6:45 p.m. where she will reveal another song, and the solo debut program, "Dokidoki Jōtō. Synchro Shiyō Ze!," will start at 8:30 p.m. (6:30 a.m. EST). Watanabe's solo debut single will be released on the same day.

Watanabe will star as 13-year-old Chieri Sono in AKB0048, the spring television anime series inspired by the all-female idol group AKB48. Watanabe was one of nine winners chosen from 200 members of AKB48 and its sister groups: SKE48, NMB48, and HKT48 to star in the anime series.

^ Ah, was hoping that the trading cards would include images of Mayuyu in her warrior and princess outfits. Nevertheless, I'm still looking forward to receiving my 4 variants of the single from HMV and CDJapan. This is my first time buying so many copies of a single from any artiste. SUPPORT MAYUYU!  :grin:

I admit a smile found itself on my face when I saw that picture of magazines with Mayuyu gracing their covers. I hope all this exposure will push up Mayuyu's ranking in this year's senbatsu elections. CG Revolution FTW!! (Too bad that issue of warp ABC was sold out on CDJapan before I had a chance to order it. Really love the images inside.)

And those photos of Mayuyu's single being promoted in music stores? Man, I wish I lived in Japan!
