Poor Mayuyu…she admitted defeat that her song “Kokoro no Placard” is not as popular as “Koisuru Fortune Cookie”. Pretty much feeling that the world would rather dance to KFC. Of course, the members were telling her it’ s not true and Takamina had to come in and put a positive spin to things.
On Japanese forums, fans have been scathing towards Mayu as center. As long awaited for Mayuyu to be center, there were those who criticized Mayuyu’s dance ethic of being to sluggish, while others were upset that the song was not one of Akimoto’s best and was not suitable for Mayuyu.
One blogger went so far to write an essay (in Japanese) about why “Koisuru Fortune Cookie” did much better than “Kokoro no Placard”.
Yoshinori Kobayashi has taken to his blog to offer his comments about Mayuyu’s comments yesterday and showing his support for her. Kobayashi also emphasizes that people should not blame Mayuyu for the song.
