C-ute’s 17th single Sekaiichi Happy na Onna no ko continues where Momoiro Sparkling left off. Meaning you got more positive, super happy pop from Airi, Maimi and those other girls in the back.
This is not necessarily a bad thing as they can only milk the hyper dance songs for so long before it gets a little routine. With that said Sekaiichi Happy na Onna no ko should please many Hello! Project and idol pop fans. The line distribution has become somewhat more even with each member getting a fair amount of singing time.
That’s been the pattern for the past few C-ute singles so it’s nice that they are not reverting to the Airi and Maimi show and are allowing the rest of the group to get some extra attention in the vocal booth. The only odd thing about this song is that there are some speed singing sections just before the chorus. It’s like there were too many lyrics and the producers tried to get the girls to cram as many words in as possible before getting to the meat of the song.
The b-side Idai na Chikara wo sounds like one of those songs you would hear at a Caribbean festival, on a cruise ship or in any movie about the islands. You know the ones. The fast paced songs with frantic drum beats and some dude with a thick accent you can’t understand rapping over the track. Well this time you have cute Japanese girls singing over the track instead of the random dude.
Much like the a-side it continues the whole happy vibe. I did notice that it started kind of deceptively with a slow, church organ intro that would possibly lead one to believe that this was a ballad.
As a whole this was a fairly entertaining pair of songs from C-ute and a nice way for them to end the summer season.
