Review

Sakura Night Fever / Chooto Guchoku ni! Chototsumoushin / Osu! Kobushi Tamashii is Kobushi Factory’s second major label singe and it features a cover of KAN’s 2015 song Sakura Night Fever.

It is readily apparent from the opening notes of the first song all the way to the ending of the final one that Kobushi Factory have been given a sound on this single that is a throwback to a previous era of Hello! Project.

For old school fans that may be something that is a welcome change from the current musical turmoil that the older, more established H!P groups have been releasing lately. Newer fans may not notice the difference. It really depends how far back you go with the entire Hello! Project I guess.

The cover of Sakura Night Fever is probably the strongest track of the three songs in this package. I’d say it’s an improvement over retro disco cheese that the original KAN version is. Whether you agree will of course depend on your own musical preferences.

Osu! Kobushi Tamashii has some of the trappings of certain H!P productions that long-time fans can probably catch fairly easily. But, those are not necessarily detrimental to the enjoyment of the song.

In the end this triple a-sided single is a series of fun songs that should please most idol fans regardless if they like current Hello! Project or not.
