Itano Tomomi’s Solo Single Sneak Peek

It was said that AKB’s fashion queen Itano Tomomi was having a solo single called ‘Dear J’ set for January 26, 2011. Being the only Itano fan among the writers here, I suppose I’ll come out and say I’m excited about this.

It makes sense considering Itano’s incredibly popular status.  Her image has more of a ‘lone wolf’ feel that fits naturally for a solo route(though I really liked ‘Elizabeth & Queen’s  ‘Love Wars’). Her voice isn’t outstanding, but her image and presence is powerful and charismatic for someone so small.

I wasn’t expecting to hear much about it but I came across this video that seems to show some clips that could be part of her PV, and possibly her song(instrumentals):

I think it’s sounding pretty good. If the song is as electro-poppy as the music playing in the latter half of the video, I think it’s a cool direction and suits Itano well. I wasn’t expecting any tidbits this soon but I’m keeping my eyes out for any more info.
