Day 4: Favorite Solo(s)
I made a rule for myself that if my favorite of anything is related to best girl, then I'll make sure to list another option for some variety.
µ's: Yuuki no Reason, Watashitachi wa Mirai no Hana, and Yume naki Yume wa Yume Janai. (Not that it matters, but I actually made this cover. Feel free to use it if you want!)
Even if Umi wasn't best girl, her solos would still more than likely be the best; they're really just that good (though it's a shame we never got a full-length Yuuki no Reason live performace...)! That aside, what about Yume Janai? Well, the song is a banger (a given). While I don't necessarily think that a solo has to reflect the character well, Yume Janai does pretty well, though maybe not as well as others.
Have you seen µ's 3rd Anniversary live?
Emitsun comes out riding an actual bike.
Like ok that's pretty dope.
It got nerfed for ENDLESS PARADE.
Another fun fact: DYK that Ai wa Taiyou Ja Nai? was never performed live? Wild.
Aqours: One More Sunshine Story.
Even before Chika was best girl, OMSS was the best Aqours single FREE, so I decided to make an exception to the rule; the runner-up would be RED GEM WINK. Anyways, I just really love this song. Chika's (and Anchan's), energy really gets across to the listener. And, while this is obviously her solo so it makes sense, but this song really captures Chika's character well. Like super well.
Nijigaku: Diamond, ☆Wonderland☆, and Nemureru Mori ni Ikitai na.
Kasumi's solos are almost the entire reason why I started to even like the character, the same with Kanata. I really just love Kasumi's energy and enthusiasm with these songs, and just her whole character in general. On the other hand, Nemureru is just such a good, chill, calm song that I can't not like it. And, in comparison, not that many of the Nijigaku solos are much higher than average imo.
