Koi no Honou is Hilcrhyme's 21st single & it was released last month on 18th Oct .
The duo's last single release was last Nov's WARAE ~In The Mood~ . Koi no Honou was released on the same day as Hilcrhyme OFFICIAL YEARBOOK 2017-2018 「H」 .
2 B-sides are available in the single which both were released digitally prior to the physical single release of Koi no Honou .
After Story was 1st released digitally on 10th June . The song was used to promote the Shunkashuutou Monogatari movie & TOKYO MX's Kon'ya mo LL ♡ (LIVE & LOVE) drama .
The 2nd B-side Magic Time was 1st released digitally on 8th Sept & it was used as the tie up song for Natsu Matsuri in Sanrio Puroland .
I was surprised when I 1st heard Koi no Honou as it's not a typical upbeat Hilcrhyme song . In fact , I had vibes of Little Samba ~Jounetsu no Kinyoubi~ (B-side in debut single Jun'ya to Manami) as both tracks have that Latin music influence going on in them .
Not that it's a bad thing as I feel Little Samba ~Jounetsu no Kinyoubi~ is still 1 of the duo's best B-side songs and despite the inclusion of 2 songs that were already released digitally , I'm actually fine with it .
Hilcrhyme's 22nd single Namida no Tane , Shiawase no Hana will be released later this month on 22nd Nov .
