As many of you may know, Shochuu Omimai Moshiagemasu is actually a cover of the original song by Candies. It seems that Tsunku has given each of H!P’s flagship groups their own cover song recently and unfortunately, this is the worst one of the three. The song has been given a more modern and fresh breezy arrangement with a very typical pop sound. The vocals were also made to match this, being very high pitched, even Maimi’s parts, not to mention Airi who are the only girls that get solos. The song is pretty short at just 3 minutes but thats really all it should be. While not a terrible song and having a pretty memorable chorus, overall it’s weak compared to their previous a-sides and not anything groundbreaking.

Surprisingly, the b-side Zansho Omimai Moshiagemasu., is a solo by Suzuki Airi. Don’t let the title confuse you though, it’s not at all similar to it’s counterpart. It’s a mellow, mid-paced pop song with pretty synth and an almost heartbreak atmosphere. It should be mentioned that Airi did a very nice job vocal wise though nothing extremely impressive. This couldn’t have passed as an a-side, but as a b-side it’s particularly well made.

Once again Tsunku has equipped °C-ute with that typical boring pop sound. Unfortunately, it doesn’t end here and my expectations of their next album are beginning to get real low. At least the b-side this time around wasn’t bad and was the more eye-catching part of the single.
