Since Monday, December 21st the Toy’s Factory Twitter account has shared daily hints for the SU-METAL and MOAMETAL PROPHECY version’s of the “BEST ALBUM”.

To acquire those (as well as the KOBAMETAL one), one must first buy one of the other editions, which come with a randomly selected card. Then with that card one must input on the special Toy’s Factory website the 10 songs that the member chose, and in order. Fans have until January 22nd to input their guesses. They will ship in March to winners.

Direct links:
SU-METAL
MOAMETAL
KOBAMETAL

More info on the BEST ALBUM Definitive Guide

The tweets contain lyrics of BABYMETAL songs, which should mean these are part of their 10 chosen songs. Whether they will share only these, or all 10 remains to be seen. Either way, one must also guess the correct order, which will be harder too.

Below I put the ones released so far, with translations, as well as which song they belong to.


Hint 1 – December 21st

SU-METAL’s – Akatsuki

静寂の中で瞳の奥に光るのだ

Tweet

Romaji:

Seijaku no naka de Hitomi no oku ni hikaru no da

English:

In the silence, shining in the depths of the eyes.

“Akatsuki” lyrics by DU-METAL

MOAMETAL’s – Shine

永遠の旅へと時空を超えるのだ

Tweet

Romaji:

Eien no tabi e to jikū o koeru no da

English:

You will cross time and space on an eternal journey.

Shine Lyrics

Hint 2 – December 22nd

SU-METAL – Catch Me If You Can

とっておきの場所をみつけたのだ

Tweet

Romaji:

Totteoki no basho o mitsuke ta no da

English:

I’ve found the perfect place (to hide)

“Catch Me If You Can” lyrics by DU-METAL

MOAMETAL – Iine!

ひとりきりでも空を見上げるのだ

Tweet

Romaji:

Hitori kiri de mo sora o miageru no da

English:

I was left alone. I looked up the sky.

“Iine!” lyrics by DU-METAL

Hint 3 – December 23rd

SU-METAL – Road of Resistance

時は来た、心の炎を燃やすのだ

Tweet

Romaji:

Toki wa kita, kokoro no honō o moyasu no da

English:

Now the time has come, burn your flame of heart

“Road of Resistance” lyrics by DU-METAL

MOAMETAL – Arkadia

誇り高く旗を掲げるのだ

Tweet

Romaji:

Hokori takaku hata o kakageru no da

English:

We will raise our flag proudly.

Arkadia

Further Hints

Sadly there were no more hints posted by the Toy’s Factory twitter, so fans looked for clues elsewhere.

There are tons of interviews over the years where the girls have mentioned their favorites, but they change over time, so more recent interviews matter more.

Hedoban (Vol. 28)

In the latest Hedoban released this month, SU-METAL says she likes Road of Resistance, Onedari Daisakusen, and BxMxC; Meanwhile MOAMETAL says she likes PA PA YA!!, Road of Resistance, Catch Me If You Can, and Akatsuki.

So that would give us so far:

SU-METAL

  • Akatsuki
  • Catch Me If You Can
  • Road of Resistance
  • Onedari Daisakusen
  • BxMxC

MOAMETAL

  • Shine
  • Iine!
  • Arkadia
  • PA PA YA!!
  • Road of Resistance
  • Catch Me If You Can
  • Akatsuki

We are missing some songs, and that doesn’t give us the order either… not to mention no hints at all for KOBAMETAL. Either they have to give us more or the chances anyone wins them really is almost zero.

    Sadly, we only got those 3 hints so far. Nothing else we have to go on yet at the moment 🙁

Still only three hints so far. · December 28, 2020 at 1:04 PM

Is there still only three hints so far?

    BABYMETAL News · December 31, 2020 at 3:32 AM

    Sadly, yes.

Niclas · January 2, 2021 at 4:11 AM

But if we have the final tracklist and right order it will be posted right?
Entry ends 22.01.21 right? So hopefully we will know.. But it has to be.. Noone can guess it so nobody would win if they dont give any hints… If we could get it then a tenso account is needed right?

    BABYMETAL News · January 4, 2021 at 1:38 AM

    I added some more hints at the bottom. But honestly, it’s still really too difficult…

    We will get it once people start getting them… they might choose the closest correct answers. It does seem that only Japanese addresses are allowed, yes (Tenso counts as one).
