I was so sure that this was going to be a tie-in for NYC so I'm surprised that it's HSJ instead. Though I'm not really disappointed because it's about time that they get some releases out on a timely matter. Though it's going to be strange to have them go from the more serious and cool image they had going for their more recent singles back to something that I'm assuming is going to be more cutesy.
And I'm pretty sure this will mean a single as movie tie-ins usually get them. In fact I can't think of a case where there wasn't a single for a movie theme song when it comes to Johnny's.
Of course I think the big question will be if Ryutaro will be a part of the single or not, since he's currently on suspension and there's really been no further official word on what his status will be when he returns.
