It doesn't actually bother me all that much. It will probably be weird to get used to, since we've had Amano for every game since 2003 now, and I'd really like to know why they suddenly decided to go not only with someone else but a high schooler debuting with her very first single... but it's okay. It doesn't sound bad at all, and to be honest I really haven't been liking Amano's stuff since she came back from "retirement" at all - there are some good songs in there but apart from Sora no Ki it's been distinctly not to my tastes, and quite dull - and while I do think she could probably pull it off for a theme song, I'm kind of ready for something new as well. I would, though, much rather we stick with one main singer for the theme songs rather than just change for every game, if that's what they're planning. We can only wait and see how it works.
Aye, I know exactly what you're saying too.
I liked one song from Daisy, and ever since she went solo and whatnot, I just haven't been feeling it. Sora no Ki was rather nice though, I guess that might be an exception. I like her for Zero though, and it just feels so strange to be changing the formula at this point.
Maybe it's particularly because... I don't like this new theme, not at all! It's too soft, very one note. I won't call it bad, just a tad boring in my own view. As far as the preview goes, the song doesn't really build, but hey, it's a preview. It's just a taste. I like rock, and Amano was as close as I felt the game would get to that (while still veeery pop...y)
Change isn't always a bad thing though, and I do say perservere, let it roll, and see what it all turns out like.
Plus, I really don't think they'd give us the ending song; that just seems against the whole point! The song was always somewhat of a reward for me, and I'm sure we'll get some other song to compliment the new one, regardless of who performs it.
