So first off, who even said this was an American Debut? Don't you think she'd release an english song for all that?
Second, when she signed with Universal it was for a world wide release type deal. meaning she could finally have her music on itunes etc the world over. Some of you are reading WAY too much into this.
As for the Cover, some of you need to look into other shit besides Jpop cuz a ton of indie,pop,electro artists are doing out of the box Album and Single covers like that.
Smh...now I remember why i left this place...lol
