Nanda collection

Kyary Pamyu Pamyu Nanda Collection
Kyary Pamyu Pamyu Nanda Collection

If you thought Kyary couldn't get any weirder after Pamyu Pamyu Revolution, you thought wrong. I mean this in a good way though, because I adore Kyary. This album really takes me back to a few years ago when the singles were being released. Even though I'm super late, I'm glad I bought it eventually. I love Kyary, she's one of my fashion inspirations, and her music is so fun to listen to. She's also a Karaoke staple amongst my friends. The title is a pun on the phrase Nanda kore? ("What is this?") Which pretty nicely sums up my feelings for some of the songs on this album. I love it, and I can't stop listening to it, but there comes a point when you're doing homework at 2am (whoops) and listening to "mi" and you start to question your life. The album is a decent length, with 12 songs on it.


  1. Nanda Collection
  2. Kimi ni hyaku percent
  3. Super Scooter Happy
  4. Ninja Re Bang Bang
  5. Invader Invader
  6. Mi
  7. Fashion Monster
  8. Saigo no Ice Cream
  9. Noriko to Norio
  10. Furisodeshon
  11. Kura Kura
  12. Otona na Kodomo
The album's intro track is called Nanda Collection, same as the album. It sounds like the music at a theme park, and makes me excited, Good use of Kazoos.

A big part of the album is catchy single tracks, like the Halloween single Fashion monster. Also Ninja Re Bang Bang, Invader Invader and Furisodeshon.

Another part of the album is the crazier tracks: Mi, Noriko to Norio, and Kura KuraMi, is completely inane. Really. The chorus doesn't really have any lyrics apart from "mi" over and over again, and it is super catchy, and  also a little hypnotic. I love it so much. Doesn't stop it from slightly driving one crazy though. try and explain to someone that this is music. Go on. 
Kurakura is another of the slightly crazier ones, but it's still really fun to listen to. The lyrics in the bridge are just like "chu chu kura kura chu chu kura kura". Who says songs have to make sense anyway. Kura kura means dizzy by the way. Noriko to Norio  is also totally mesmerising.

Cuter tracks like Otona na Kodomo and Kimi ni Hyaku Percent. The lyrics for these were so cute! Kimi ni Hyaku Percent is all about how you shoud tell people your real feelings and try your best and stuff. I love Super scooter happy too! It's so happy and cute, and the melody is so catchy. It's quite relaxing too. Saigo no ice cream is really pleasing, and the 8-bit style melody just kind of washes over you. I think in the chorus they have remixed the melody from the mini games in the princess peach DS game.... Does anyone remember that game? Fusisodeshon was about turning 20, (Hatachi means 20 years old) so I've been listening to it a bit more now I'm 20. Lastly, Otona na Kodomo is such a nice way to finish off the album, it's a bit more low key and relaxed than the rest of the album, so you can slowly adjust back to normality from songs like "mi". I love the lyrics to it too. 

All in all, a rad offering from Kyary! If you wanna be made happy and also slightly weirded out/ confused at times, Kyary is for you~
I'm filled with new determination to collect the other Kyary albums now :D 

Thanks for reading! -Amy xoxo
