1. This game
An enchanting piano melody starts off the song, quickly creating a cheerful and lively aura. Although, it doesn’t stay peaceful for long, it’s soon joined by aggressive bass lines and energy-filled vocals which is done impressively. The bridges are done extremely well, they transition without losing speed or impact. Konomi delivered confident and powerful throughout the song, keeping the whole track solid. The instrumentals were elaborate and captivating to the fullest. Yup, a great way to start off this single!

2. Delighting
A more simple version of This game, but has more of a techno edge to it. Delighting is delivered fairly quickly thanks to the fast electronic beats and Konomi’s swift singing. But other than that, there’s not much to point out due to it being a toned down version of the previous track.

3. Cyber Thunder Cider
Cyber Thunder Cider added another side of the single which is needed since Delighting was a simplified version of This game. A short track filled with synths and filtered vocals. It starts off with fast, filtered chanting until Konomi’s vocals blitz through with a very memorable chorus. Konomi is able to maintain her vocals and keep up with the complex instrumentals, despite the increasing speed from verse to chorus. Yup, great way to finish the single too!

This game is a great single with two outstanding songs. Konomi Suzuki managed to deliver such powerful tracks that must be listened to multiple times!

Rating: 4/5
