Song of the Day #100: Mano Erina – Next My Self

Here we are, the 100th consecutive day (almost) of idol blogging. And it’s time to say that this is going to be my last entry in this series before I put it on hiatus. While I’ve found blogging about a different song every day to be an interesting and fun challenge, it’s gotten to the point where it’s taking up a lot of my time, and more importantly it’s getting in the way about blogging about other things. I’m planning on reviving a blog series here that I wondered if I could even do with my daily posts, which I feel is the opposite of what I wanted to do here. I’ve enjoyed making these posts a lot, but at the end of the day I want to be able to blog more about other things on this blog and on my other blog (

When thinking about my last post before this series goes on hiatus, Mano Erina’s last single Next My Self came to mind immediately. While I was never the biggest ManoEri fan, her music is often underappreciated and Next My Self is pretty wonderful. The reason it came to mind was because it’s her last single before her graduation as an idol to go on to be an actress, and even though this 100 day blog series is hardly the same as a several year idol career, it felt fitting. The song has a heavy piano song (an ode to her early songs where she played piano) and has a really nice feel to it – it’s not happy nor is it sad, but it makes moving on feel like a fitting move.

Perhaps I’ll start this series again, which is why I’m saying hiatus, but farewell for now!
