This CD contains new songs from primarily the Paris Hanagumi, but also includes a few songs from some of the members from the Teito Hanagumi. These are full-length versions of the songs found on the drama CDs. Tracks 11 to 20 are instrumental versions of the songs -- NOT karaoke; these songs have an instrument playing the melody. Sometimes, I prefer the instrumental versions because they sound very very nice!

[Quick note: I got to listen to this because of a friend who let me hear the tracks, so I do not own the CD. I listened to 20 tracks in total, but Neo Wing/CDJapan claims that there are 10 tracks. I'm pretty sure there are 20 tracks and that this is the right CD, because there is no other CD with the same track listing, but if someone else could confirm that there is 20 tracks, it'd help me out a lot!]

Individual track comments:

  • Aijou Ippai
    Very cute Erica song. Very hyper march-type piece. She sounds very happy and cute in this, as if she's running out breath! Very happy-sounding.
  • Tsukiyo no Mori he
    My favorite song. It's a very classy-sounding jazz-ish upbeat song. The combination of Takamori Yoshino's voice and Inoue Kikuko's voice is very very nice! This is not a song you'd expect Lobelia to sing, but it turned out very nicely!
  • Ciseaux no Teema
    This is based off Ciseaux's actual theme in the game. Very nice! Very mysterious-like, but still cute. I love the "chokin" scissor noises he makes!
  • Koi wa Maka Fushigi
    I don't know if I like this combination of Maria's deep voice with Iris's childish voice. The song is OK. It's a pretty orchestrated ballad-ish opera-style song? It's very short, too. Disappointing...
  • Shima Kaze
    This song reminds me of THE BOOM's song, "Shima Uta"! Well, it is sung in a similar style, at least. :) It's performed very well by Tanaka Mayumi, but I really don't like the style of the song, so... ^_^;
  • Kuroneko Rumba
    My second favorite. This is a very cute rumba song! It has a very catchy beat, the lyrics are cute, and the singing is cute, if you don't mind hearing "nyao" noises. (Shimazu Saeko's "nyao" tries to be "sexy" compared to Kozakura Etsuko's and Hidaka Noriko's cute "nyaos." ^^;) Just a very cute song! Very jazzy and cute song!
  • Boku no Paris, Watashi no Paris
    It's a very pretty jazzy ballad, and Takamori Yoshino sounds very nice! However, Ecchan's voice is very... unfitting for the song? ^_^; Hanabi and Coquelicot are not French, but they feel as if Paris is their original home, hence the song. Still, it turned out very nice!
  • Montparnasse no Yoru
    I'm not sure what to make of this. It's a dramatic pop ballad and the combination of Shimazu Saeko and Inoue Kikuko sound like a nice match... but the song is too draggy. Saeko sounds especially nice, though.
  • Yozora no Hana
    Hmm... I was expecting the Sakura song to be better, but oh well. It's a very pretty sad-sounding ballad and while it sounds nice, it just sounds a bit redundant compared to past Sakura Taisen songs. Sounds a lot like Chisa's "Cinderella" duet with Takano Urara.
  • Sumire Cha-Cha-Cha
    This is Sumire's retirement "final" song. A light samba like number. Sounds like 50s-style, sort of? Very cute. I especially like the chorus. For some strange reason, it reminds me of Matsuda Seiko... ^_^;
