I remember talk of that around the time Sanmon Gossip came out. Was there ever confirmation? It's definitely plausible.

It's samey but I dig it. The vocal melody seems memorable and SAPS is a reliable collaborator. The track seems well balanced and I get similar vibes to Usurahi Shinjuu. Plus it doesn't hurt that...

We'll see if the other new...
