This is WaT’s 9th single and it was released on April 23, 2008. The single reached #8 on the Oricon Weekly Charts and sold 26,279 copies.

WaT presents another pleasant pop rock tune with Toki wo Koete ~Fantastic World~. This song is a considerable improvement over their last single Yume no Tochuu because it is simply not as boring. The music has a progressive percussion section plus some additional acoustics and edgy electric guitar chords. Wentz and Teppei’s vocal harmonizations are good as well.

The B-side is also of high quality and I found it to be a little better than the A-side. Hana Sakeba is more upbeat and features stronger riffs with faster drums. The chorus and the rockish instrumentals are the best example of this because the arrangement has a more alternative sound compared to their older works.

Overall Rating

4 stars
