«Jinsei ga Mou Hajimatteru» is Sayaka Ichii in CUBIC-CROSS’s debut single.
It contains the title track and its instrumental, as well as a b-side (Sora). The single ranked at #11 at the Oricon charts.
Sayaka Ichii in CUBIC-CROSS is a band consisiting of Ichii, Naoki Yoshizawa and Taisei (a former band mate of Tsunku; he used to play in Sharan Q with Tsunku who ended up creating Morning Musume).
Ichii graduated from Morning Musume in May 2000 with the official statement that she was to return to school. Six months later, however, she released the album FOLK SONGS with Yuko Nakazawa, and a year after this her debut single was released. Rumours has it that Ichii was supposed to be «the second face» of Morning Musume after Asuka Fukuda had graduated. If this is true, then management must have changed their mind when Maki Goto joined, as she was given this role. This bothered Ichii so much that she graduated, and was given a «solo» career instead.
