Just when you're feeling glum... moumoon reappear with a bright and shiny song to cheer you the fuck up. Seriously, a song couldn't possibly be more cheerful than this. And, you know what? It's awsome. Frackin' awesome. Musically, it packs highly addictive beats that will have you bouncing around in your seat; Kousuke Masaki has really out-done himself here. You know how some Asian pop songs have that effect on people, right? There's just something more stimulating about them than Western pop songs. You'll never hear an American pop song with happy-go-lucky beats like this.
