Stargazing: September - Hara Yumi

Look, I know it's not September. But when a song features one of the most elegant and unique characters with actual depth from THE iDOLM@STER series and sounds absolutely fantastic in the winter season, I just have to feature it.

There was quite a big number of fans for Shijo Takane, the silver-haired beauty who lives out her life speaking mostly in a poetic tone. People also really enjoyed her gluttonous side, chomping down unimaginable amounts of food whilst keeping her waistline perfectly thin. She proudly set her foot down with her impressive height, standing out in the midst of all of her 765 PRO idol friends. It's undeniable that she leaves a lasting impression on anyone familiar with the series. She also has such a sophisticated fashion sense.

Just as usual, we got another set of MASTER ARTIST albums that give each character their chance to shine with a mix of THE iDOLM@STER original songs and covers of popular songs of all eras. Out of all of the ones I've listened to, Hara Yumi's 'September' is easily my favourite song. It has a really relaxed tone that gives me that feeling I get when the colours of autumn start to fade into the white magic of winter. I sincerely hope you'll enjoy this one as much as I do.
