1. Koi no Tsubomi (恋のつぼみ)
2. Koi no Tsubomi 
   (A Cup Of Milk Tea Bossa Nova Version)
3. Koi no Tsubomi (Instrumental)

This is Koda Kumi’s 31st single and it was released on May 24, 2006. The single reached #2 on the Oricon Weekly Charts and sold 273,060 copies. The title track was used as the theme song for the drama Busu no Hitomi ni Koishiteru.

Koi no Tsubomi is a high quality sugary pop song with cute vocals and mid-tempo beats. The chorus is catchy and it is without a doubt my favorite part of the song. This song did follow the same style as Birthday Eve and I thought Kumi pulled off another great and upbeat bubblegum pop track.

The A Cup Of Milk Tea Bossa Nova Version of Koi no Tsubomi is a much more mature version of the song. It removes all of the pop elements of the original version and adds some new instruments like the acoustic guitar. I liked the direction of this version because it is unique compared to Kumi’s past work.
