C-ute's next single title and release date has been announced. Based on the title, it seems to be a good bye song for Berryz.

Yeah, especially because the release date is a week after the last Berryz single

Plot twist; C-ute disbandment! Doubtful, I think they're still doing decently well.  That'd be hilarious, though, for them to knock out both H!P kids groups back to back.
 
Sounds like it'll probably be a ballad. Considering I don't think Maimi, Saki or Mai have much business singing ballads, I'll hold out hope for some sort of Platinum-era Emomusume sad synthy dance number.  Probably not, though.

If they disbanded ℃-ute, then everything bad would happen.

I think one will be a ballad and one will be fast paced. It'd be interesting if they made it as if they were intertwined stortlines for the music videos. For example (kind of) like MoMuSu did with Kono Chikyuu no Heiwa wo Honki de Negatterun dayo! / Kare to Issho ni Omise ga Shitai.

It'll be utterly amazing if this single is a goodbye message for Berryz :) Like others have said I Miss You could be a goodbye message but THE FUTURE could be C-ute's way of looking forward after Berryz go on their hiatus :) It would make sense as both groups made up H!P Kids :) Honestly if this doesn't turn out to be the case I'll be disappointed lol

Urg, right in the feels T-T

Honestly, I think they are just going to let C-ute get to their 10th year (if they can keep up sales which they should) and then send them the way of Berryz. C-ute wouldn't bother me as much as Berryz does, but I do think its just odd for one of the H!P kids groups to be around and one not. I don't know, it will just feel weird without Berryz but with C-ute still there. The way I see it, its an all or nothing deal.

Idk, C-ute has been selling well recently. Definitely more than Berryz over the past 5 singles.... With around 50k per single (double A), I can't see H!P dropping C-ute quite yet. They seem to be getting to their peak instead of dropping off. Berryz has also been selling better than usual recently (30k/40k>20k), but C-ute's sales are just stronger (60k>20-40k). I'm looking at the Wikipedia discography, btw, for numbers so hopefully they're somewhat accurate. 

 

I mean, C-ute has only hit under 20k one time in their career, while Berryz did about 8 times. Hell, J=J is selling better Q_Q While the girls are close I don't see C-ute disbanding simply because Berryz isn't in the biz anymore... Not yet, at least.

C-ute will be here for a while unless the girls wish to graduate.. And I don't see that unless one of them wants to get married. I mean, C-ute don't look as haggard as Berryz, Berryz has been looking like they are sick of being idols in recent years.

C-ute's 10th year would put them in 2016, and that's when Maimi turns 24. They'll definitely be on their way out once they get too old. 50k won't save them from that.

That's true, I can't really speak for about a year and a half in the future... I guess I was thinking more short-term in that I can't see them leaving within the next year. Though I could totally be wrong about that, but as stated C-ute seems to still have a passion for performing and they're selling well so I also can see them being around for a bit longer :)

I see them being on their way out in 2017, barring any unusual circumstances.

As an outside observer, that's the exact feeling that I got, too.

I'm also expecting C-ute to graduate soon based on ages but at the same time I really don't want them to because they clearly still have their passion for their work. I'm kind of hoping that when they do eventually graduate they'll be kept as a group under UFP but I also don't think that'll be very likely :(

Oh wow, I actually got my wish for a synthy platinum era type song rather than a ballad LOL I'm so surprised!  I'm not overly impressed but I do like it.  Feels weird to hear such a midtempo song from them.

This song would be a perfect theme song for Vampire Knight or any anime which is of mystery, supernatural genre.

 

Actually it reminds me of "Another" opening song:

and Vampire Knight ending song:

I like it but the reception for it on the other sites was so crazy good that I'm underwhelmed by it.

I like it and like smtmissin said, it reminds me of the Vampire Knight ending but much faster.
I wonder what the lyrics are actually talking about.

Sorry if the first one was really hard to read, was doing it as I was writing out the lyrics by ear hahaha.

Ok reading that gets a little confusing with everything broken up and interrupted, but I like it, not quite what I wanted though.

Covers are out.  I like them, even if they are somewhat simple.

I agree wholeheartedly.

I actually really like both songs.  This is a huge step up from The Power / Kanashiki Heaven.

I can't help but crack up when H!P covers use hideous, Microsoft default fonts, though.  The design department up at UFP must be a dismal place.

All covers are cool and the girls are beautiful, I can't wait for hearing (and seeing) it ! (I wait for the MVs to be aired on H!S to listen to the music ^^)

"I miss you" PV has some good concept, but what good does a good concept do if it doesn't fit the atmosphere of the song??? I am disappointed. And what's wrong with Airi and the hair touching?

 

I felt the song a lot more before I watched the PV. It is usually the opposite.
