Namida no Tane , Shiawase no Hana is Hilcrhyme's 22nd single & it was released last month on 22nd Nov .
The single was released a month + after their last single Koi no Honou .
Namida no Tane , Shiawase no Hana is a ballad & it was used to promote Tokai TV / Fuji TV's Sakura no Oyako Donburi drama starring Maya Miki .
Vocalist/rapper TOC said that he rewrote the lyrics of Namida no Tane , Shiawase no Hana a whopping 100 times & he drew inspiration from the Sakura no Oyako Donburi drama script .
2 remixes serve as B-sides this time round . The 1st is a violin & piano version of the A-side and the 2nd B-side is a TeddyLoid Remix of Koi no Honou .
This's 1 of the rare occasions that I like the B-side remixes quite a lot more than the A-side , not that the A-side is bad but both remixes elevate the qualities of both Namida no Tane , Shiawase no Hana & Koi no Honou to another level .
I have mixed feelings in writing this as Namida no Tane , Shiawase no Hana is possibly Hilcrhyme's last music offering after they experienced an unexpected setback last week .
And the fact that I've been supporting them for almost 7-8 years , it's a terrible feeling as now their releases (be it physical and/or digitally) no longer can be purchased which I thought it's ridiculously drastic .
I'm thankful that my friend managed to help me purchase Namida no Tane , Shiawase no Hana digitally before this happened (which I didn't saw it coming) and I personally feel it's unfair for TOC to endure this as well .
Seeing that Universal Japan own the rights to Hilcrhyme's material , should this be considered as the end of Hilcrhyme , I think it's only fair for Universal to put out 1 more release of them as currently it's impossible to buy their discography and that will proper signify the end of the duo's career .
It's unfortunate that things have to come to such an end for Hilcrhyme as they were on a roll celebrating their 10th anniversary just last year & just 1 major big mistake sent everything crashing down for them .
