Two graduation singles in a row for Juice=Juice, oh my oh my! On today’s installment, we get the graduation song for 1st generation member and leader Miyazaki Yuka “25sai eien setsu (25歳永遠説)”. Lyrics by H!P stable songwriter Kodama Ameko go a long way to express the peculiar situation that Yuka finds herself; I particularly though the bit about high heels that seem to fit better. For plot, the departing leader takes an early train back to her hometown Kanazawa for a day alone, while her group-mates worry about. Protected by a rainbow umbrella meant to evoke the members of Juice=Juice, Yuka turns out just fine. Yuka actually leaves her umbrella behind in Kanazawa, signifying her graduation from the group. If you’re a sucker for symbolism like that (like me), you’re going to love “25sai eien setsu”. The 12th single from Juice=Juice “‘Hitori de Ikirareso’ tte Sorette Ne, Hometeiruno? / 25 Sai Eien Setsu” goes on sale June 5, 2019.
