She was really the best back then.
My image of her was a cute Hikaru Utada
Her vocal prowess though is on the same level as a mosquito crying
She's actually so damn beautiful
She's like a cheap knockoff of Hikaru Utada
And it seemed like everything became a mess when her dad came into the picture
She looks good and her songs are nice too.
The problem with her is the volume of her voice when she sings live.
Kuraki's so damn cute in the cover of Fairy Tale.
It also had a lot of good songs.
The way she was sold was really good
She was cute, but it was tragic that her image just overlapped with Utada's
She's actually pretty slender and tall
It really can't be helped if she's called an Utada copycat.
I think everyone thought that way.
I could't believe that such a cute girl existed.
But she started losing it when she appeared in cosmetic commercials.
People call her a copycat, but putting that into consideration, I do think that the way she was marketed was really good.
What was her Conan song again?
There aren't any more singers who have this mysterious-beauty kind of vibe about them anymore
I also heard that her father was behind the criticisms aimed at Fuji and Hama-chan during the plagiarism fracas
"Time after Time" really suited the movie well, it was the best
I like this one
She's the last great rookie to come from Being
It's just that Aika Ohno is a genius
Kuraki was able to make use of her own assets so all was well for her.
I don't like her songs now, though.
Hamada: "It seems that you have a copycat running about these days."
Utada: "The people around her may be aware of it, but that's out of the question."
I also liked Hitomi Yaida whom they called Ringo Sheena's copycat
She's more decent than the current Azumi Uehara, though...
"Aoi wwww Aoi wwww Kono hoshi ni ww"
The way they marketed her by not making her appear on TV at all was really good
