Staying true to the retro style, even the jacket artwork is done up to look like showa idol Matsuda Seiko.
In an interview, Watanabe Miyuki said her dream was to become a solo idol singer like Matsuura Aya. Now that her dream has been realised, she hopes to appeal to everyone. Will you be “fished” by her too?
