Honestly I liked what I heard of Magic Power so far, it is a bit of a departure from their more recent A-sides but isn't out of line of their songs like Romeo & Juliet and Aiing -Aishiteru-. And we're getting quite a few songs with this single, four new group songs and two unit songs that will finally be getting CD versions, HSB's School Days and HS7's Get!!. The only downside to it is that it marks the first nine member release for the group and I honestly can't help but think it won't be the last.
I am rather curious about the concert footage. I can't help but think it's going to have Ryutaro edited out of it as much as possible. It also makes me wonder if they were planning of releasing it as a concert DVD but after the scandal had to scrap those plans. But I guess that's all just speculation on my part and we'll have to see the footage ourselves to see what it'll actually be.
