Ten is a good round number for introspection, and former AKB48 Itano Tomomi does just that with her new release “Just as I am”. Her tenth single puts our girl in the deserts outside Los Angeles and on beaches of Santa Monica for a power ballad of a song. Tomomi brought a dazzling selection of weather suitable attire to LAX and gives us great looks with yuccas playing silent sentinels in the background. Everything looks beautiful in “Just as I am”, and this is the way it ought to be for this release. As far as ballads go, Tomochin picks a pretty good one here with inoffensive guitars rolling through the chorus like the waves crashing in perfect barrels behind her. Itano Tomomi’s “Just as I am” goes on sale February 28, 2018.
