Announcing it three months before the release? I guess there's a lot of events coming again. Granted they'd kill the hype if they sold around 50k copies like the other non-MM groups atm.
/EDIT: Two months. I'm blind. That's pretty normal.

I'm ready for Tsubaki to wreck my lowly opinion of them again :)
Honestly, if this single is a hit for me as well, they'll probably pass Kobushi song-wise for me. Let's just say I have expectations that this single will be good!!

I was thinking about how such a long title could only be a Tsunku song and yeah, it is. From Jplop:
First song is an electro dance number by Tsunku since Just Try
2nd song is a sad song by Teion Yakedo lyrics writer
3rd song by Kodama and Takui, a summer digital ska beat song. Pay attention to their yukata in the MV

I read Junjou Centimeter as Juicy Center at first and it made me want to die temporarily.

Kishimon's hair is such a refreshing style right now, I think that kind of length looks great on her and her personality.

Outside of both A's -- and Limited A in particular -- this is a really nice set of covers. WTF is the deal with Lim A, though?

Some of those covers are straight up embarrassing LOL. I hope Hello!Project's graphic design team is paid barely minimum wage tbh. They continually serve junior high level skills.
I have to hand it to Tsubaki... not only is their music getting better, but I can finally listen to them without grimacing. Their vocals used to be painful even on the studio cut. I can't attest to their live skills, I doubt they're very good, but they've come light years in terms of studio vocals.

Management is probably already saving money for the new groups.

Probably my favorite part of the entire video was the fact that they put a little border on the top and bottom of the thing to make it look like a centimeter ruler and I thought that was a nice little touch.
Other than that, I loved the song and I really hope H!P keeps that lyric writer because they are doing wonders.

This song really reminds me of a Nogi46 B-side and I am here for it!

Preview of the PV for Date no Hi in this week's Station episode.
Both of these songs are pretty solid, but I definitely prefer Junjou. This song is a little too generic, to the extent it could've easily gone to any other active group other than Kobushi or ANGERME imo. Like I can easily see MM doing this as one of their slower tracks or J=J doing it as one of their "mature" releases.
It's a shame the videos so far are very cheap, 'cause Junjou might be my favorite H!P song this year. H!P videos are always cheaper than they have an excuse to be though so it's not like I can say anyone else is getting superior treatment lol.

It is more upbeat indeed
I wonder if they'll do a dance shot with alternative outfits because I can't imagine them dancing in yukatas to this
I think Tsubaki is going the more mainstream idol way, which they might success at. If there's one positive thing I can say about H!P right now, it's that they are starting to get a bit more deverse:

It makes sense that the least talented group should be the most mainstream
