Buono! – co•no•mi•chi [6th Single]

January 18, 2009 at 5:01 pm (Buono!) (, )


Buono!’s 6th single, entitled co•no•mi•chi, was released on 01.21.09. The title track was used as the ending theme for the anime series Shugo Chara!

co•no•mi•chi is a catchy pop number that will make the listener smile. The song begins with the chorus. There is a very pretty and cute pop instrumental that supports the girls’ voices nicely and establishes a clear atmosphere for the listener. Then a few rock influences work their way in before the first verse starts. On the verses, there is more of a mellow feeling and the instrumentation remains interesting enough to keep the listener. They are actually stronger than the chorus because they have more of a mature feeling, which is not something that usually comes through Buono!’s music. The pure instrumental section puts those rock tints to the forefront and make for a great dance section. Overall, co•no•mi•chi is probably the girls’ strongest song to date and definitely one to listen to.

The B-side of the single is 無敵の∞Power. This song is more of Buono!’s usual style, going with the cute and happy atmosphere. It’s an okay track and it was expected that this sound would take over the B-side but it would have been nice to hear something new.

In order to promote the single, a PV for co•no•mi•chi was made. Fitting with the title of the song, the girls are seeing walking along a road through different places (the jungle, the arctic, England, etc.). The main road is just a street road in the middle of nowhere, which they dance on. This video may not be the most interesting but it does fit with the title of the song.

Single Ranking: B +

Buono!’s new single was a pleasant surprise. The A-side had more of a mature vibe than usual, which really suited the girls’ vocals well. Even though the B-side was a pretty generic, the single still had a good overall package. It’s definitely worth checking out.
