Ayu, Warrior Princess. She'd give Xena a run for her money XD
Big Xena fan here!
That did come to my mind when I first saw it.

The commercial looks great! I think she looks really pretty in it. But this song is making me so excited. When she first started the refrain of the song at A Nation 2016, I was like "Please don't let this be a new song. It sounds idiotic." But now that the 30s cm is out and I've heard more of the song. I'm REALLY loving it! I can't wait for the full song. The 30th just needs to hurry up and get here.

I wonder if we're getting a PV for We are the QUEENS, since it's a digital single that's probably being released only to help promote the game.

I haven't watched many Ayu PVs, but this CM looks better than the ones I watched.

Probably on the album it will be a part of, I think.

Or you could take Dentsu for example, Japan's very own #1 award-winning advertising agency. Their campaigns are world-renowned and employ the best practices.

Good advertising is universal. The thing is, there's not a whole lot of good advertising, lol.

And again, the problem isn't outlandish advertising, I think it's just a weird language thing. By definition I took Clash of Queens to mean a coming together of various and multiple powers in a battle for supremacy. Communicating that as "Race Queen (a type of queen)" vs "Clash of Queen (multiple queens in battle, or the games concept itself, )" is a fail in my opinion.

Anyways, this isn't a critique on Ayu (she looks phenomenal in the CM and as mentioned the art direction is on point), but as someone whose been studying advertising for the past 4 years I can't help but analyze the idea itself and critique whether or not I feel the message is being delivered in the best possible way, as well as make an attempt to follow the logic. This is especially important considering my end goal is to work at an advertising agency in Japan. I guess it's good to know that you don't have to come up with particularly smart ideas to do it. Lol.
This CM was done by DENTSU... just to say lol

Anyway I hope we will have a PV for this song!

I feel like the chorus when she's singing "YES WE ARE THE QUEENS" is a bit too high, but other than this I am loving everything bout this so far, especially her looks

Omg, I am actually shocked, lol. I wonder who wrote the copy - the CM itself isn't bad, the copy is what threw it off for me.

Wow, that is a huge sword for small Ayu.
But these days she has the guns for it.
I really like that promo picture.
It would be great as a poster or in a frame hanging on the wall.

I also tried playing it because of Ayu, but I remembered that I can't get into these strategy games. Like, I don't even know what I'm supposed to be doing in the game
