スコット と リバース (Scott & Rivers) ニマイメ

Nimaime (Japanese: ニマイメ) is the second album by pop/rock duo Scott & Rivers.


The title, Nimaime, is a double entendre. "Nimaime" in Japanese can translate to "handsome man", or "second flat object."[1][2]

In December of 2014, Scott & Rivers released the standalone single "California" (Japanese: カリフォルニア). In 2016, the song appeared on Weezer's eponymous White Album, in English, under the title "California Kids." A new version of the original, Japanese, Scott & Rivers version appears on Nimaime under the title "California Sunshine" (Japanese: カリフォルニア サンシャイン). Later, the song "本音なんだ。" would appear on The Black Album as the song "I'm Just Being Honest". The song "Kaze Fukeba" (Japanese: 風吹けば) was later released on Van Weezer under its original title, "I Need Some of That."

On June 19, 2020, the band's social media accounts uploaded a photo of new CD covers of the album with the band's name in English, suggesting a potential release in overseas territories,[3] though no such release materialized. In October of 2020, the album was re-issued in Japan on translucent orange vinyl.
