This is WaT’s 5th single and it was released on December 6, 2006. The single reached #4 on the Oricon Weekly Charts and sold 87,273 copies.

IMPORTANT NOTE: This a review of the normal edition. The limited edition features a music box version of Boku no Kimochi.

Bokura no Love Story is the first WaT song I have liked in a LONG time. Sure, it’s your avarage Christmas themed song but what I enjoyed the most was the harmonizing vocals of Wentz and Teppei during the chorus. Also, the additional brass arrangement was a really nice touch and it blends well with the strings and percussion.

The B-side, Jitensha, features the instrument that I don’t really like hearing, especially in a WaT song: the harmonica. However, I didn’t really mind it this time. This is one their better B-sides and I might sound crazy saying this, but the overall BGM reminds me of a country song. Wentz and Teppei do what they do best in this song and it’s great.

Overall Rating

4 stars
