~Single Daizenshuu~ the Epic: Part I

I don’t even know how many months it’s been, but this DVD was truly worth the wait.

I’m going to review this concert differently than usual. I will comment on each single as it is, the performance itself, then rate it. Normal ratings are based on the average of 1) vocal performance/unity and 2) dance performance/unity on a scale of 0-10. <– That’s the number listed on the last bullet point of each section. Originally I had included “expression of emotion,” however, I decided that it was too subjective after much contemplation. The original ratings chart with all three categories will still posted at the bottom for comparison purposes.

Just keep in mind that the charts don’t tell you anymore than whether or not it’s a good performance, so even the top rated performance may be the least enjoyable to you. Original and new performance ratings chart, plus medley ratings chart are all posted at the bottom of this entry.

Ready? Here goes the longest review I’ve ever written:

There’s something about High-King…

Or perhaps there’s more than just something?

I questioned myself today: Why was I not as excited about this unit as I should have been? I do realize what great variety of members we have here: Leader Takahashi Ai (Morning Musume), Tanaka Reina (Morning Musume), Captain Shimizu Saki (Berryz Kobo), Leader Yajima Maimi (℃-ute), and Egg Maeda Yuuka. For those of us who are non-ReinAi haters, this is the dream team. We’ve got the big names of Wonderful Hearts all together on the same page.

So it must be first impressions, I thought, since the unit name didn’t help heighten my hype at all.

High-King, hiking, Lion King, Hong Kong? I’m not sure about you, but if I were a H!P unit and named High-King, I would probably… My level of expectation was fluctuating.

However, during the moment when I double-clicked to watch C\C’s PV, when its enticing, nearly addicting rhythm traveled to my ears – who knew? – I was completely blown away.

キタ――――(゜∀゜)――――!!

Highlights of the week. Spoilers ahead.

.

1. I do not know my own heart’s maximum capacity. orz.

To make the long story short, Niigaki Risa and Kamei Eri are now my current absolute top favorites in all of H!P.

Actually, a while ago when GAKIKAME started showing up everywhere and all during the same week, I had a feeling…just slightly, that they were both going to take over my world by doing something like…teaching me how to manage my money by securing their spots on the top of my list. (Do I have to go back and purchase all your past PBs? ^^;;

We’ll see how that turns out.
