The cover of the CD+calendar edition
Moshimo Negai ga… (もしも願いが・・・) is Nami Tamaki’s 18th single and it was released on October 14, 2009. The single reached #20 on the Oricon Weekly Charts and sold 3,408 copies. The title track was used as the theme song for the video game Valhalla Knights: Eldar Saga.
I like all of the covers but the CD+calendar edition’s is my favorite. Looking good, Nami! ♥

I’m glad that Nami Tamaki’s music has been improving little by little since the label switch. It’s safe to say that Moshimo Negai ga… is her best A-side so far too. I’ve gotten over the fact that she’s not doing the dance oriented stuff anymore so I’m trying to approach her “new style” with an open mind now. As for this song, it has a nice production value that features a mid-tempo arrangement done with piano and light beats. There’s also some synth in the background as well.
The single includes 2 B-sides. The first one is Sukiya de ~Itoshii Hito e~ and it appears on all the editions. I thought this song was pretty good and it elaborates on the fluffy pop sound heard on some of the tracks from the Friends! single. I was a little turned off by the male vocals that show up during the chorus but they’re not too distracting.
The CD only edition has an exclusive track and it’s a cover of the song MAGIC (originally performed by Tina in 1999). It’s an upbeat track and has a lot of synth and beats. Like the first B-side, it has a polished sound that I thought was great.
Pros: Overall, her best Universal single yet.
Cons: Minor stuff. Don’t falter now, Nami!
BASICALLY…she’s off my shitlist! XD
