From Monday, December 21st to Wednesday, December 23rd, the Toy’s Factory Twitter account shared daily hints for the SU-METAL and MOAMETAL PROPHECY version’s of the “BEST ALBUM”.
Sadly these are the only official hints we have received, none at all for KOBAMETAL. However, I have added some answers they provided in recent interviews which may help.
To acquire these special editions of the BEST ALBUM, it’s a requirement to have the appropriate Prophet card, which came at random on pre-orders of the BEST ALBUM. With those cards, 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 at 23:59 (11:59 PM) to input their guesses. They will ship in March to winners.

The tweets contain lyrics of BABYMETAL songs, which should mean these are part of their 10 chosen songs. Below I put the 3 shared, with translations, as well as which song they belong to.

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.

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.

Sadly we know little from Koba. He mostly likes the songs that came out as singles, but that would lead to the same tracklist as the BEST ALBUM itself!
Help Filling Out Form
Since I saw people had trouble filling in the form, here is some help (I had trouble as well!).
For starters, the delivery address MUST BE IN JAPAN. So, if you don’t live in Japan or have a place to send it, you can use a service such as Tenso to send it there and get it sent to you after. They provide you a personal address (with phone number and everything) to fill in.
On the form the information asked is as follows:
- Last Name / First Name
- Last Name / First Name (in Katakana, use a converter such as this one)
- Phone Number
- Mobile Number (can be the same as #4)
- Postal Code (after putting it in hit the button next to it and it will fill in lines #7 and #8).
- Street & Number
- Building name (not required)
After finishing and confirming twice (the 2nd page confirmation button is the one on the left), you will be sent to a completion page. You will not receive an email.
