AHHAHAHAHAH

OH GOD

OH GOD I DON'T KNOW IF I SHOULD SAY OH YES OR OH NO


Well actually, it's still Kirari so I'm not THAT surprised. I'd be surprised if she really got a second single as just herself. Making the most out of this anime thing makes sense, and is good pimpage :D Hopefully some Kirarin fans will switch over to Momusu, too.

I'm not looking forward to hearing this stuff though, actually I still don't have Koi kana :o

Sure they will use Kirari until Kirari says stop XD
By that time, I hope Kusumi to be a big name already and sell with it :D

That says "Kirarin Revolution Song Selection"

「バラライカ」

And that says "Balalaika".

A balalaika is, as aedon may know, a Russian musical instrument. Here is a link that explains in more detail.

Koharu exposure for the win! She really grew on me; I'm curious to know how well she's doing 1 year from now...

Omg, excited about this! 8D I have to admit that I love Koi Kana ^^;;; I'm having too much fun watching Koharu grow out of her awkwardness and develop both as a person and singer. So yesh.. this will be interesting! :D

New album = more vocal training which she needs. So I think it's okay. She's still really young, but seems like a hard worker so I think she'll do well with another year or two of training. I think she's already grown a lot as a singer in the past year.

I'm curious to see how the songs turn out. But I'm sure they'll be the standard anime sound XD

she isnt in this poll but I would like to make it known that I vote Odango for Ultimate Cutest  :theking

As someone mentioned before, this is Kirarin, not Koharu. Let me explain: the mini album is called "Kirarin Revolution Song Selection", and as far as I know, Koharu only plays the Opening song, and only for the first 17 episodes. She plays the voice of the main character, but she does not sing all the songs this character plays in the series. From episode 18 and on, the opening song will be a C-ute song. So this mini-album will have only 1 or maybe 2 songs (someone said she does the Ending song too) by Koharu. The second single is the real news here, but still it's Kirarin.... Koi Kana has sold very well because it's aimed at the kids that watch the anime, and it's those kids that want to have Kirarin's song (as a friend living in Tokyo wrote a few days ago, most kids don't even know the singer's name is not Kirarin). So I would not say she's living to her "Miracle Girl" title.

^ The character's name is Kirari, not Kirarin. But I guess it could be true that not all of the songs might be sang By Koharu on that mini-album :o

And damn, wtf with Balalaika? Is Kirari going to invade Russian music market as the answer to tATu? XD

Balalaika has a rather weird sound, it resembles koto but it's still something I wouldn't expect to be used in a J-pop song o_o Oh well, it would be cool anyhow.
