Buono! – ロッタラ ロッタラ [5th Single]

November 11, 2008 at 11:55 pm (Buono!) (, )


Buono!’s 5th single, entitled ロッタラ ロッタラ , was released on 11.12.08. The title track was used as the first ending theme for the anime Shugo Chara!! Doki.

ロッタラ ロッタラ is a fun song that makes the listener want to smile. The song starts off with a very catchy instrumental that evokes a cool and fun atmosphere. Once the first verse comes in, the girls’ vocals go perfectly with the rock-tinted music and it’s very cute when they sing the title of the song in the background. The chorus is nice although it definitely could have been stronger had their been an instrumental change or the girls’ vocals showed more power. The pure instrumental section really does stand out as the rock edge is spotlighted when the guitar is given a powerful solo. ロッタラ ロッタラ  is actually really catchy even though the chorus falls a little flat.

マイラブ is the single’s B-side. Strangely enough, this song has the more aggresive instrumental that should have made for an addictive song but the overall quality is a bit lackluster. The girls’ vocals aren’t particularly strong and the music just loses its edge when they are singing. At least the pure instrumental section has a little more flavor but not much. It’s not a great song and it’s not a very good addition to the single.

In order to promote the single, a PV for ロッタラ ロッタラ was made. The video is absolutely horrible, just featuring the girls in a room dancing. It doesn’t even come across as being cute, just strange.

Single Ranking: B

While ロッタラ ロッタラ is a nice and catchy song, マイラブ is pretty boring. The A-side carries the single nicely though and deserves a listen.
