While the song is decent in a generic sort of way, I feel as though voices like Kotobuki’s and Toyosaki’s are wasted on songs like these.

Kisses at random… Emotions are running around.

Connect the grains of the sun with a twinkle of light. my fantastic method!!
The basics won’t make a right about-face. Our meeting was a miracle! It’s my policy to enjoy myself.
