Since the PV is out, we have the full song, so what do you think about it?

I don't like it...It's just so boring X_X When I was listening to it and I felt like I've been listening to it for 10 minutes, but only 2 minutes >_> It just drags on and on...
It feels like a b-side instead of an a-side...

I'm indifferent. In my opinion, this song is so JPOP... Nothing is special on this song. Unfortunetly, this song is a A-side.

Edit: Wait... Ikiru is B-Side, right? xD

Edit2: After a few listen to this song, I'm looking foward to the translation of this song xD

I like it !!
but in my opinion she got a lot of better b-sides (Namonaki Tane, Beauty, blah blah)
Ikiru is relaxing and good, but i hope this song can grow on me.
And about the pv, i love the scenes, but i think they can make more with a beautiful scenery

It's nice I guess, but I was waiting for an exciting climax and it never happened. It would of been so much better with some dramatic high notes or instrument changes near the end.

But it's nice, calm...but I wish it wasn't an A-Side. It doesn't show the best of alan. It would of made a better B-Side or album song.

However, she looks so, so beautiful in the PV Skip

To be honest, It's a bit boring and too bland for my taste. It sounds like those generic J-pop ballads that anyone can sing. As someone said here, I was waiting/hoping for something special... something to make the song sound more exciting as well, but there was none. Overall, this song is not so alan-ish because it's too monotonous so I guess it's one of Alan songs that's not gonna be on repeat much. :( I'm sure the lyrics are beautiful though.

As for the PV, I think it's quite okay. It's pretty and relaxing to watch but I think it needs more scenes. I'm sure they could've done it better. If you ask me, I'd be happy if they'd made the PV for "Namonaki Tane" or "Over the clouds", which was obviously another A-side, more popular than "Diamond" and totally deserves a PV, instead.

The PV is really pretty, but I agree the song itself is kinda bland. It indeed feels like a b-side.

The lyrics are nice though. I can't understand some parts by ear unfortunately >_>


A rough translation of the chorus:

♪ Where is the future?
You can search but you won’t find it
It’s something our hearts’ eye pictures and creates
The future isn’t [???]
We live while carrying sadness and happiness
In both our arms ♪

Oh pommy you don't like it ? :(

I understand the feelings of everyone, it sure is a bit bland and boring... and nothing special happens. They could have put erhu into this song, it would have sound so great and something special could have happened XD

But I TOTALLY LOVE it. I listened to it today morning while waking up, and as I was already late for school, I couldn't listen to it again, but I was excited the whole morning because I loved it so much. The song is so soothing, it's totally what I need and expected, and about the PV... Best PV since Gunjou no Tani IMO. I love outdoor PVs, and alan looks stunning.

But I understand everyone thinking it's just "nice". Ikiru is the type of song which doesn't have anything wow but also the type of song I give a special mention just for the feeling.

I love it. I love the melody and the arrangement of the song.

I usually like it when alan takes a break from the epic ballads she's so used to doing. This fits really nicely with summer.

Yeah >_< It's not growing on me either...but it might if alan sings it live Sneaky We'll see~
It's just too easy-listening for me...nothing special happens Mobster

It might grow on me, but for now it's kind of boring. It's kind pretty and alan's voice sounds good, but that's not really enough... With a title like "Ikiru" I was expecting something a little more dramatic. alan can do easy-listening well (just listen to the My Life album), but I hope this isn't the direction she is going in with her music :/

ugh, I'm so negative in this post. At least Minna De Ne is great XD;;

Avex has this habit of highly producing one single and then the next single is kinda cheap or in this case...release a mega-expensive compilation album and then this single

So hopefully the next single will be better *_*

I hope so too. We probably won't have to wait too long for the next single either, considering the speed at which alan has been releasing stuff in the past XD And we have that song for the Chinese drama to look forward to as well.

i have to agree that the song itself is quieter than most of her other ones. but i think i like it for that. it helps me to relax a bit, and for me thats pretty awesome.
i guess i am trying to say that is nice that she makes some songs like this, and i still like i as well because it is different. not in a good or bad way, just different

I like it! I love these themes that are so relaxing, perfect for some times of the summer, and more for when I´m very busy in the job XD. I love this song in the way that it is a big change in her musical Style.

I like it so much!!! I think this song need to listen to again and again,then you will feel that it's good..I don't know why so many Chinese fans from tieba don't like this song...

this song have a same feeling with 白い翼,which I listen to almost everyday ..and I think except the powerful songs like久远の河, such pure songs are my favourite...since 生きる was out,I listen to it many times everyday...

in a word,I like it so much!!!can't help to see the lyric.. Hohoho

I'm not crazy about "Ikiru" or anything, but it's okay. I like to listen to it from time to time, but it's definitely not one of my favourite alan-songs.
