Read Nana-san’s blog post with regards to Animelo Summer Live 2009 RE:BRIDGE here.
This is probably posted elsewhere already but… The mystery surrounding who Nana-san will be doing collaborations with is no longer a mystery!
2 of my predictions came true. :O
The opening was DISCOTHEQUE and MonStAR medley!
Yup. It was Mizuki Nana and Hirano Aya!
I’m not surprised that Nana-san sang a song with Hirano Aya. Really. Ever since Nana-san mentioned she has a few ideas as to whom she wanted to do collaborations with, I had a feeling Aya would be one of them. The two of them have been getting along quite well ever since WHITE ALBUM.
But what I am surprised about is the choice of songs. Aya singing DISCOTHEQUE is a bit hard to imagine for me. MonStAR, on the other hand, although not one of my favourite songs, is a logical choice of song. It works to get the crowd hyped up (seeing as the medley is the opening song for the 2nd day).
While I’m at it, I feel a need to defend Aya’s singing talent a bit. Yes, the quality of her singing is like a roller coaster ride. I personally think God Knows…, LOST MY MUSIC, NEOPHILIA, and WIN are great songs. Yet songs like SUPER DRIVER and Love Gun makes me cringe.
The problem lies within the songs that she has been given to sing. Crazy high bubble gum pop isn’t her style yet they keep trying to promote that style for her. Aya is fine when she sings slower rock type songs that don’t require screaming and yelling and hitting high notes.
Next collaboration is Gimmick Game with m.o.v.e. Well, apparently, it’s only with motsu-san but I DON’T NEED TO HAVE HEARD THAT VERSION TO KNOW THAT IT MUST’VE BEEN EPIC!!! I would’ve preferred with Yuri to have been involved too. That would’ve really made it epic. XP See? Gimmick Game = racing song (because m.o.v.e is known for their Initial D songs. XDD)
Finally… Mizuki Nana and SUARA singing Shin Ai. The song suits SUARA’s style now that I think about it. :O
And it’s really obvious Nana-san has been wanting to sing with SUARA for a while now. So it’s great they finally got the chance. :3
I hope they’ll release the DVD/Blu-ray soon… Gimmick Game with m.o.v.e is a must-watch/hear for me. XD
