I think Final Squall should have been the main A-Side. Singing ~Ano Koro no You ni~ Should have been on this single rather than the last one. And then To Tomorrow as the 3rd A-Side.

As much as I love Mugen Climax. Its not as much of a Good Bye song. I'd rather the last single be more underwhelming and good bye feeling. That way I cry less about the group disbanding. Its kind of selfish, but I'd rather not end with wanting more from the group. A clean break hurts less. I'll stick with the nostalgic melancholy for the final single.

Also the Curtain Rises would have been better packed with Mugen Climax. Similar vibe. And the two singles would be more balanced in general.

Curtain Rises is a culmination of all their recent singles, imo- it very much enforces the more generic/mainstream direction they've been hitting at (mainstream, yanno? for many of their recent singles- not all though, but most.), so I hope at least something like that will make this single sell well. :) (Well, being C-ute, I'm sure they'll sell well, anyway)

My move is keeping me distracted from C-ute leaving, but I looked at the date today and realized it's coming too soon...

Curtain Rises isn't even a sad song and I just kept tearing up while watching it with that realization.

There's not much difference between 1and 2. They might have a chance. Overall I wish this was a better single besides being their last.
