CommentsEdit

Comments from Tsunku (her producer):

"My impression on Nakazawa Yuko hasn’t changed much since I met her very first time.

I’m sure she’s gone through some changes along the way, but while I was creating the album, I came to a conclusion that my first impression of her was just like this album. After graduating from Morning Musume, she has been gaining experiences in a variety of fields such as TV doramas and musicals. Maybe that’s why she seems to be maintaining the same attitude as the first time we met.

As for the title, Tsuyogari, I wanted to express a woman’s stubborn courage for not revealing the true side of her, as well as the part where she feels she needs to change into a more sincere, honest personality. The concept of the album is “a complete shift in a mindset”. It is as if to commemorate a new beginning.

Currently, Nakazawa Yuko still holds freshness from her debut era, so I thought, she might as well shift her mindset right now into a completely new direction so she can have another new beginning to discover more of herself!

After completing the album, I was listening to the finished product by myself and thought, “My impression of her is still the same, but my impression on her songs has changed a lot. I didn’t know she was able to express such a wide range of emotions.[1]
