    Man, I love this song. More than Sing Out even. Looks like I'm continuing this trend I seem to have of liking the coupling tracks more than the main song on Sakamichi (and 48 group) singles.

    Plus I'm just generally a fan of unit songs over a full senbatsu.

    Quick thoughts on No You na Sonzai:
    • Whoa! That was really interesting. I love it. It's been a while since we got a EDM-style track. I think the last one was Boku Dake no Hikari.
    • I wonder how many takes those scenes needed. I feel like it would be way too hard to keep it together during the silliness :lol:
    • Asuka being paired with Maiyan brings a new and different dynamic from the Nanase/Maiyan pair. It's really cute.
    • Nice cinematography. Not busy and super clean framing. Asuka in the square arch and Shiraishi "outside" it was a neat way to bring the MV's story into the dance section.
    • But my favourite thing is the choreography. Great to see that they're leaning more into the vogueing. It's a style that really suits them. It's nice to see them do a more standard form of it. Now, how long until we see a death drop[hehe]
      • Do we know who the choreographer is? I feel like this could be a CRE8BOY piece.
    Good stuff.

    Not fond of the whole tutor x student concept going on but the dance scenes where amazing especially the final one before the mv ended with that kiss. Asuka x Maiyan has got to be one of the best pairings in Nogi. Favourite unit song after Lonely Brothers.

    That’s some dorky cute flirting in the No Youna Sonzai MV :p. I like that it still stays true to their characters, since Asuka is fond of other members but keeps a distance (she's said if she wasn't in Nogi, she'd be anti-social like a hikikomori too). It might ring false if they had had a narrative where the two are fundamentally on the same wavelength, like previous duets. Maiyan is also mischievous and playful around close friends… although if she actually behaved like the MV, Asuka would probably laugh and encourage it.

    I can’t remember where, but I heard somewhere that Asuka once asked the staff why they gave her a single called Jikochuu de Ikou, and they straight up told her that she should feel free to be more jikochuu “self-centered.” It’s nice that the staff recognizes that Asuka’s appeal is she’s idiosyncratically weird and prickly (although I guess it could have also meant they want her to be more ambitious?). But it’s very strange that they keep giving her happy songs for centers. Are they telling her to lighten up? Does someone have a cheerful Asuka fetish? Regardless, Sing Out fits Asuka's character better than her previous solos, because rather than a “cheery” melody, it’s an “uplifting” melody. If there’s a message they’re sending her this time, I guess it’s that she may be dark (she’s implied to be “someone crying somewhere” in Sing Out), be lonely or expect that all things pass (“watching ice melt” in No Youna), but Nogi’s love is all around to support her.

    Asuka often prefers solitude, but that's partly because it’s difficult for her to connect to others out of self-protectiveness and discomfort in social situations. It’s a gift that they tried to give her a single that’s all about camaraderie and directly involves the audience at concerts, so she can feel connected without saying it out loud.

    Nice. I've always wondered about this. Happy, bright songs for a self-proclaimed, dark girl? It makes me laugh. But the more you watch Asuka do her thing, you see she loves to perform. She's always smiling and laughing in the lives. This is a dark girl? It makes me laugh. Personally, I love this paradox -- get me more Asuka centers!

    Also, bubble boy Asuka is a head scratcher...

    I really like the song, and the first lines by Momoko are heavenly. The MV is fun as well, but not something I am going to watch over and over.
