I like how she it's done in a way it shows is determined to go on in the end of both tracklists.
I just listened to the reverse order while re-reading the lyrics and I agree.

How I see it-
Jacket A: starting with We are the Queens feels like she has her guard up while ending with The way I am shows a growth towards the acceptance that some will abandon her but she will always be here for them.

And with the contrast of jacket B: she starts off with this soft and a bit vulnerable persona, which by the end evolves to become stronger and aggressive.

The determination theme that you mentioned is definitely there and it's very interesting to see the two different ways she created to show it.

This is interesting, and given some people were speculating about a ''DOUBLE TROUBLE'' concept that might fit somehow. Really hoping something great is coming out of this.

Both do have a very different feel to them, ending on WATQ feels more optimistic but I think I like the first tracklist better because WATQ makes more sense at the beginning for me with that long intro that doesn't really match the rest of the album. I also prefer WORDS after aeternal since it feels like WORDS is a response to it. W is the only one I'm not sure fits where it is in terms of lyrics or music. I think i would have preferred it next to WATQ but it does provide something upbeat near the end which i like.

I totally appreciate what she's doing with the two reversed tracklists. I just don't think it justifies two seperate versions.
She should have done it on streaming sites (maybe it will be ) and for the mu-mo versions.

According to this tweet:

Trouble has sold 18k so far on NetEasy platform in China. Also, apparently it's doing very well in KKBOX in the Japanese section.

Hmm, when I enter japanese weekly singles of the same week as you it shows slightly differently. But from what I have noticed is that your links shows "Taiwan" while mine "HK"

With the two versions she will make collectors happy by having more stuff to collect while other people can buy one version and stream the other.

I think so, too. The way I am sounds less generic when put as an opening track.

^ oricon only counts sales within japan, also these sales are digital i think? Oricon separates physical and digital sales, but i don't think they track digital sales from abroad neither
