Posted on: August 14, 2008

Tanimura Nana’s debut single, entitled Again, was released on 05.30.07. The title track was used as the theme song for the dorama, Oniyome Nikki Ii Yu da na.

Again is a sweet sad song that Nana brings to life. The song starts off with a very pretty piano instrumental that very quickly establishes the song’s atmosphere. Following is the first verse and Nana brings some very pretty vocals to support the music and as the verse continues, the song’s beat becomes very clear. The chorus really stands out as Nana brings strong vocals to reflect the song’s sorrow. The song’s beauty really comes out on the pure instrumental section, spotlighting just how fragile the music is and how well it keeps the listener entranced. Again is a fantastic song and Nana definitely brought her A-game on this one.

The first B-side of the single is get it on. The opening instrumentation features a cool rock-tinted sound that stands out immediately. The first verse comes in and Nana delivers attitude and power to her vocals, which help create a sleek and strong atmosphere. She sings “turnin’ me on, turnin’ me on” to open up the chorus and the following English phrases all stand out strongly. After a little pure instrumental section, she delivers some absolutely fantastic vocals, displaying her power and control. For a cool attitude, get it on arises as an enjoyable number that the listener can love from beginning to end.

瞳の中のモラル is the single’s second B-side. The chorus is what really stands out for a really cool atmosphere, driven by a rock-hinted instrumentation. There is a real carefree attitude about this song that catches the listener’s ear, making it another enjoyable song for this single.

In order to promote the single, a PV for Again was made. There is a very natural prettines about this video that really shines, keeping the viewer interested. There is no significant plot and just features Nana singing in various places such as in her house and outside.

Single Ranking: A
