New song at 22:04. Before I give my impression, this was how Nana-san introduced/describe the song.
The idea/theme behind ミュステリオン is a girl’s feeling after breaking up/finding out crush is going out with someone else. It’s a very fast song (hard rock close to metal) it was a difficult song even for those on the instruments.
That pretty much most of what she said.
The following is a little bit of research I did on the word/name: ミュステリオン
About the name of the song: ミュステリオン = Mysterion… Anyone here know Greek? Because it’s apparently pronounced Myusterion in ancient Greek according to the Japanese Wiki, which is why it is written as ミュステリオン as opposed to ミスティリオン.
My impression of the song is… I don’t really know what to say. It’s different. I’m expecting a really cool PV/music video due to the pace of the song, but I honestly don’t know what to say about the song itself. Not one I’d find myself on repeat… It’s one that would requite A LOT of getting used to on my part. But then, I said that about Etsuraku Camellia and that song ended up growing on me so… 8D
By the way… Her voice was LOW in that song. I don’t think she’s ever sang with that tone except for her character songs where she voices a male character…
Now onto Smile-Gang… Nothing particularly worth noting except that Nana-san rates the cleanliness of her apartment a 2 out of 100. 😄 Yes, TWO out of ONE HUNDRED. That’s how messy her apartment is at the moment. Misato gave herself a rating a 3, one point higher than Nana-san because she at least ATTEMPTED to clean her apartment the day before. XDD
Another thing is that one of the listeners sent in a mail asking if Nana-san and Misato has ever gotten into a fist fight. Somehow, the fact that Nana-san immediately burst into laughter is amusing to me (this part is at 11:47. The two of them VERY BRIEFLY acted out what it’d be like (at 12:04). So obviously, no, the two has never gotten into physical fights with each other.
So then, have they ever argued? The answer is an obvious no because, as Misato pointed out, Nana-san is sempai (thus they share a sempai-kohai relationship). I think most of us know how the whole “code of respect” works in Japan (and Korea)? Kohai must always respect the sempai.
But in general, Nana-san said she rarely gets into fights/arguments. Misato, on the other hand, said she often does. XDD
That is all for this week. 😀
…For some reason, it feels like it’s been a while since I wrote about Mizuki Nana. ^^;; Heh, this is what happens when I’ve got a Tales of… game on my hands (Tales of Graces). Apparently, not even Nana-san can peel me away sometimes. XDD
