"Kanashimi Twilight" is the thirty-third single released by Morning Musume. The single was released in limited A, limited B, and regular editions. Limited A came with a bonus DVD and limited B came in special packaging and with a 40-page booklet. The first press of the regular edition came with a photo card. Both limited editions and the first press of the regular edition came with a serial number card which, when entered in a lottery, could win a ticket to one of the single's launch events. The single reached #2 on the Oricon charts and charted for four weeks, selling 61,322 copies. The Event V was sold only during launch events, and therefore did not chart on the Oricon charts.
