The song is nice. It definitely has that Anime opening sound to it but still stays true to her own style. Actually it kinda reminds me of Love Fantastic a little bit, might be the strings arrangement.
I'm also curious what XOX is gonna sound like. I always thought it was such a shame that she never released her own versions of Dame Dame da and Happy & Happy so I'm glad she finally decided to release this. It's been a while since her last English song as well.
