So that’s what they’ve been doing with all the stuff that Armor Girls should be doing!
The question before was whether Kamen Joshi could match the success of “Genkidane” from 2015. That standard is “reach #1 on Oricon.” I won’t say that it can’t be done (who all else is releasing at the same time matters, obviously), and I’m not even going to pass any kind of judgment on the song itself (it sounds like a Kamen Joshi song!). Just: Is the magic there? And is it possible that it’d flop? I ordinarily wouldn’t want to ask those kind of questions because so many factors play into how well a particular release sells, but I think it pertains if you’re doing #1 singles and shows at SSA and the like.
The thing will be available on Tuesday, and we’ll see pretty shortly just how well it does.
