It's so hard to believe it's true, we've benn waiting fos so long. This song is so beautiful, Hikaru's vocals are so good and convincing, Sakura Nagashi makes me wanna cry. Violin, drums, piano, the whole arrangement is perfect. Touching lyrics. A soft ballad, but definetely not boring. my fauvorite moment is in 3:01, the culmination point. Awesome. It reminds me "Kairo" (the way Hikaru sings), Passion (from 3:01 until the end) , Show me Love (Not a Dream) (slow at the beginning and sudden change of mood from sadness to despair).

"I can't believe I'll never see you again
I haven't told you anything yet"

This line reminds me of Shinji missing Kaworu, I don't know what will happen in Evangelion 3.0, but if it's as sad as Sakura Nagashi, watching it will be heartbreaking.

Though it's not the end of hiatus, I'm happy to hear her once again. We'll have to wait for new songs, but if they are going to be as wonderful as Skura nagashi, it's worth even years waiting. I'm sorry if I misspelled anything, I'm just so excited. Thank you so much Hikki, you amazed us again.

An intriguing collaboration, Utada's beautifully constructed sound illustration, combined or intertwined with Naomi Kawase's subliminal definition of a deep respect for the creation of life expressed "voyeuristically" through the panes of a hospital window........experience the first waking moments of "womanhood", a simple message of hope and love.

Open the link and scroll down to Emotional Rescue.

How to portray Naomi Kawase?

A fascinating insight;

In Rien ne s?efface (Nothing vanishes), Laetitia Mikles explores the art of Kawase.

Utada certainly pulls the rabbit out of the hat this time.....

This is so exciting! The song isn't the best I could have hoped for, but my best hope is another jam in English...which won't happen for a LONG time, probably even after the hiatus is over! But I digress. I'm so glad we have this!

Anyone else excited for the DVD single? :)

It's been huge news here in Japan! They are talking about it everywhere! I guess the video got over 1 million views in less than a day!

I swear I'm connected to Utada spiritually somehow. My bestfriend paid for my airline tickets to visit during Christmas and it reminded me of when we both went to Chicago to see Utada in the Flesh tour. I paid for that trip. So I listened to some Utada songs on youtube, resubscribed to Hikki, and found out about the new song. This encourages me to sign on Utadanet.com after years and behold I have a request for my Chicago audio that was sent this very month. I haven't been on in forever, my friend turns this season into something I can cherish and because of that, I see a message sent this month. And for some crazy reason I'm still remembered as the guy who has audio of Chicago's concert. If for some uncanny reason I see Utada at the Borgata, I just might die with joy.

The lyrics from http://www.sakuranagashi.jp

桜流し

開いたばかりの花が散るのを
「今年も早いね」と
残念そうに見ていたあなたは
とてもきれいだった

もし今の私を見れたなら
どう思うでしょう
あなた無しで生きてる私を

Everybody finds love
In the end

あなたが守った街のどこかで今日も響く
健やかな産声を聞けたなら
きっと喜ぶでしょう
私たちの続きの足音

Everybody finds love
In the end

もう二度と会えないなんて信じられない
まだ何も伝えてない
まだ何も伝えてない

開いたばかりの花が散るのを
見ていた木立の遣る瀬無きかな

どんなに怖くたって目を逸らさないよ
全ての終わりに愛があるなら


Music by Utada Hikaru and Paul Carter
Words by Utada Hikaru

Yea there will always be haters because they can't achieve anything close to what she has. I enjoyed commenting on them too =(, I left one for goodbye happiness and the Kuma Chang troll. If you want the full versions of the song and video go to the facebook group. I posted them up there.
