This is the song that got me into AKB48, the song that got me into listening to girl idol groups. Prior to this fateful single, I wasn't much of a fan of girl idol groups, let alone AKB48. I gotta say, the opening guitar riff is ridiculously catchy. The beginning leading into the chorus and the chorus itself is just impeccable, a perfect gem. The first few "MAYBE, MAYBE"'s hits you all at once and it just sounds so amazing with all the synchronized voices of these girls. Overall the song flows extremely well and it just makes you want to put it on repeat for the whole day. After one listen it gets stuck into your head. The B-side for this song is average at best. I'm not really too big on it. I believe the selling point of this single lies in the very strong A-side. This is probably and will be for a long time, my favorite tune from them.

I love the music this group makes. This is another great single that has been released. The music is so upbeat, it makes me want to dance sometimes. This is exactly the type of music I like to listen to when I am having a great day. I am definitely going to see them in Akiba the next time I go to Japan.
