Opinion

Asuka is one of the -let’s be frank- less popular singers and I don’t really know why. She has a nice round voice that doesn’t puncture your eardrums, she isn’t immature and childish, she nails her lower and mid registers and you can tell that she likes music. These are all positives. Good, now let’s talk about the negatives. And I can only find two: 1. the J-pop cliché where the singer has to shout while singing up high and 2. I want to listen to her singing J-rock. She. Would. Rock it.

I really like her very first release, the one that was the second Ending Theme of Sakura-sou no Pet na Kanojo. I appreciate that the musicians who worked on this song, Tashiro Tomokazu and Honma Akimitsu, respected the fact that her voicebox was still maturing, as she was not even 18 years old at the time. The melodic lines didn’t push her and the song was interesting enough as well as pleasant to listen to. The other thing that I like about ASCA is that her coupling songs are good. I don’t feel like the people behind the production have the “It’s all about Track #1. The rest don’t matter.” mentality. Au contraire, I could argue that she is given the opportunity to sing what she would like to sing. And this is probably why I enjoy her less popular releases more. This also explains my choices in the Videos section. I had to skip the OP of SAO: Alicization and choose “Hibari” instead. I just like it more and I think that more people should listen to it. Thumbs up.
