C-ute’s latest and 22nd single is simply their crowning achievement to date, with a double A~side worthy of its billing and complete production efforts on both sides “Kanashiki Amefuri” and “Adam to Eve no Dilemma” sizzle musically and choreographically with an energy and passion filled of conviction not seen or shared on this level by any of their fellow H!P group mates in recent times. C-ute continues to receive the very best from Tsunku as both compositions resonate as powerfully as concert openers with an electricity comprised of both musical and sexual allure plus the added dynamic of lyrical visuals brought to life through flawless and incredibly inspired dance choreography, this ‘single’ emulates all that is the trifecta of musical and entertainment excellence which one could wish for~. I decided on purchasing single types A and B as in addition to each A~side’s original music video, both dance version videos are also included.

Perfect wardrobe choices also make for perfection here as the girls dance to complex choreography coupled with a whirlwind of changing outfits presenting in casual to dressy styles all edited together in seamless eye catching movements. And while the main set resembles that of a photo shoot stage the inclusion of well timed props and of course the simulation of rain itself make for the total package herein.

Easily one of the most stylish and sexy wardrobes to date for H!P, “Adam to Eve no Dilemma” also is presented upon a most stylish set which breathes imaginative genius in both its simplicity as well as its heavy dose of symbolism throughout playing backdrop to the girls and song perfectly in both a powerfully visual sense all the while keeping the subtlety of not overshadowing the girls’ movements as well as the highly technical dance choreography performed. C-ute has been of late but as with the arrival of this A~side has become fully the most alluring and mesmerizing even, of groups within the H!P family, here too as has been the growing case within, C-ute has outgrown its duo lead vocalist status giving the entire quintet of girls their due chance to shine individually.
What more is there to say?…as this single stands as really a true double A~side giving pure validity to the title as both songs are true stand outs on their own with such individual musical grooves, styling, lyrical meanings, allure as well as passionate symbolism~…and if H!P is smart about it, both or all wardrobes featured on the entirety of this single should be readily headed to a stage in Japan or otherwise very very soon! And it wouldn’t hurt to open any show with either song too.
