Kono Mune no Tokimeki wo preview

ManoEri's new single, Kono Mune no Tokimeki wo, is being released August 30th. So today we have the full song preview.

Since I loved her last 2 singles that were upbeat and happy, I was expecting the same thing from this song. However, I was actually pleasantly surprised. The song was a lot softer and mellow, like most of Erina's songs. But unlike Mano Piano this is a slow song I don't absolutely hate. And another plus is her voice in this song doesn't make my ears bleed. It's actually a lot more polished sounding, showing just how far she's come from Ongaku Gatas.

I'm not really a fan of ballad type song, but this one is undeniably sweet. Her voice actually compliments the music nicely. While this song isn't my favorite song by ManoEri, it's not my least favorite either. I like the song. Which I blame on becoming a ManoEri fan no matter how hard I try to fight it.
There is one weird element to the song. The random sleigh bells in the background. The seem really random and out of place.
