H-el-ical aka Hikaru!!!

Atlas Star

Dripping with Kajiura
Wow wow wow thank you so much!!

im genuinely shocked Hikaru tried to hit those high notes, like in the chorus when she was melody and during the don’t believe in action bits — but it came out great (well, not accounting for the fact that there may have been studio magic).

Lmao kajiuran isn’t kaiiuran unless Yuriko is onboard holy crap

Is this the first official live video we have seen since H-el-iCal started??

Her voice sounded kinda muted like it was stuck in her nose. But at least she didn't crack hue. Though she should probably refrain from sing that high. It can't be healthy for her already injured voice.
She sounded fine in the verses, and kinda cute in the English phrases.
The other girl (Pray? or what is her name? hue) sounded fine in the verses, but damn did she sound ugly when singing the high notes in the refrain.

She had a livestream last year. She sang Fly me to the moon and some other songs IIRC.

Did hikaru forgot her Kajiurago ? She could do them at least during the bridge instead of just moving around. I was disappointed the True girl got to sing more of the song, but overall it was a good performance but without the kajiurago it gets way too repeatitive. Im surprised it became kinda like a must song for such lives.

So to commemorate 15,000 subscribers, Hikaru filmed a broadcast where she also had a bit of a mini-live. During it, she performed:

01. 空 (Sora)ー Look ahead
02. 千日紅 (Sen’ichiko)
03. Fili
04. Pulsation (English Version)

Tomorrow, she will upload a cover of Yoasobi’s 夜に駆ける (Yoru ni Kakeru) to her YouTube channel.

Loved the event, seeing a cheerful, lively Hikaru always improves my mood.

English version of pulsation was a big bow towards foreign fans, so I won't say a single bad word about it. Her english sounded very well, as expected.

Regarding 夜に駆ける - never knew the original before, extremely vocaloid-ish, not my cup of tea. I think pitching it down to suit Hikaru was a good idea, this, combined with Hi-chan's "dark" voice and her expressiveness make the song somewhat entartaining. I adore the "shinjite itai kedo shinjirenai koto [...]" part, She NAILED it.

Kinda wish they covered the instrumental as well, with a rearrangement of sorts - add some slap to this boring bassline to spice up things a little bit or somethig.

Still, I think it might eventually grow on me, it's catchy.
