Kikkawa Yuu’s 2nd single titled Hapirapi ~Sunrise~ had it’s release date pushed back to 10/5 instead of the original release date of 9/21.
The news was announced via mails sent to Kikka’s FC members.
When I first saw the announcement, I was a little surprised since there seem to be no clear reason as to why the release date has been pushed back (even though it’s a matter of ~10 days), which got me wondering if it was made to have more time for promotion or just because they needed more time to finish everything concerning the single.
As some might remember, Kikka’s first single also had it’s release date pushed back, but it was mostly because of the tsunami/earthquake that hit Japan by this time, so many fans are stating that the date change for the 2nd single is due to the many artists releasing on 9/21 that would be ahead of Kikka on the charts, so maybe pushing back the release date to 10/5 will help her score a stable position on the charts with less rivalry.
Overall, I’m really surprised by the announcement but hopefully this was done to promote the single even more and to assure Kikka a place on the charts for more people to take notice.
The release date for the single has been pushed back to 10/5.
