1. Kono Chikyuu no Heiwa wo Honki de Negatterun da yo!
Starting off this ridiculously long titled single! Kono Chikyuu no… is kind of flashback to the days when Momosu did mainly disco tracks because of their producer at the time was way into it! I actually missed this a bit since they’ve moved on from DANCE☆MAN. I’m not surprised that it’s still essentially a Ai and Reina fest but the former has a good reason. Risa and Riho also get their groove on with lines but that’s about it. It’s a fun dance song and all the members sounds great.
2. Kare to Issho ni Omise ga Shitai!
But honestly, the main hitter was the main B-side. I mean it was that long ago that we’ve got our cute song “Maji de Suka Ska!” but damn this topped it by a long shot. I mean for one thing Takitty isn’t the important one in the song. Instead it’s Sayu and Reina this time and I loved she got lead lines on this one and add the fact that the members all have solo lines = WIN. I have to say that this one wasn’t what I was expecting to be after “Kono Chikyuu no…” but still my favorite off the single ^_^

There’s only ever been 3 songs to celebrate graduations. Asuka Fukuda’s “Never Forget”, Kei-chan’s version of “Never Forget” and now Takitty gets her own and it’s not that song XD. Unlike the previous two tracks, this is more pop/rock and it fits Takitty’s vocals quite nicely if not perfectly. I don’t know why but after a while I get a feeling like she’s not into the song since she’s just “singing the song” and not doing much else….though that ~wooooo!~ before the guitar solo was a nice surprise…but still doesn’t make up for the fact she sounds like she’s bored LOL.
Closing the “12, Smart” era, The uber long-titled single was pretty good and probably ranks as the best between the other two singles released. Kono Chikyuu no… is pretty catchy and has a good sway to it because of its disco pop roots. Plus Ai did a much better job singing here than she did in her solo song to be honest. I still did like her song’s arrangement however since it was rockin’ and if she had given a stronger effort…the song would’ve been ten times better. Kare to Issho ni Omise ga Shitai! though was the best oddly enough since it gave everyone chances for the spotlight and it was terribly fun! Think “Hyokkori Hyoutanjima” but more random LOL. Still for being Ai’s final single and the last before the 10th generation begins…I’d say there’s still hope for awesomeness!
