All about the Girls ~Iijanka Party People~ / Together again (All about the Girls ~いいじゃんか Party People~/Together again) is MiChi’s 5th single and it was released on April 21, 2010. The single reached #24 on the Oricon Weekly Charts and sold 4,019 copies.

The cover is literally a mess. Was it made in a scrapbook?

It’s always a party with MiChi and she shakes things up a bit with All about the Girls ~Iijanka Party People~. This is an energetic dance track that instantly grabs your attention. It samples Scatman John’s Scatman (Ski Ba Bop Ba Dop Bop) and I thought that was really cool. You hear his “scatting” at the beginning and occasionally throughout the entire song, seamlessly blending in with the beats and synth.

The 2nd track is on the mellow side but still very good. Together again features electric guitars and heavy beats that accumulate into an uplifting chorus. Even though it’s not as exciting as the first A-side, I think it’s on the same level in terms of quality. I don’t find it boring at all either.

Originally released as a digital single, dance DANCE! appears as track 3. I thought this song was just alright because there’s nothing really striking about it. It has the same electric guitar and dance beat formula like Together again and a couple of other songs.

Pros: Such a fun single! You’ll have all 3 tracks on repeat.
Cons: dance DANCE! is the weakest track but even then, it’s not bad.

BASICALLY…it’s all about MiChi!

  1. i don’t like “together again” that much, but “all about girls ~iijanka party people~” was really good <3. "dance dance!" was okay. great review, i look forward to your ~special~ post tomorrow.

  2. I watched J Melo yesterday and she was on there! (along with Emi Maria). I didn’t catch the start of the interview but she seemed nice. She’s half British, half Japanese – her accent is really strange! She pronounces words with an English accent but Japanese intonation, it’s odd but interesting.

    At first I was like hrm… this song is weird (they played All about the girls at the end of the interview) but I’m quite hooked. I wanna hear it more! It does sound quite dated, but apparently she was saying in the interview that she was inspired by the music that was popular as she was growing up (hence the sample). It’s a pretty fun song. The PV is quite… basic. But I quite like the song – will have to hear it again, I like her voice :)

    How strange you reviewed her! She doesn’t seem that famous?

  3. She still pretty new in Japan. She released her debut album UP TO YOU last September.
