Oriental Diamond
Oriental Diamond single cover - click for larger picture Tamio Okuda and Yosui Inoue, who co-wrote Puffy's first single Asia no Junshin (True Asia), team up again eleven years later for this song.

Oriental Diamond was featured on the September 5th, 2007 single along with Kuchibiru Motion and Neji Potion. It was also featured on the Honeycreeper CD. The single can be ordered from CD Japan and YesAsia.

On her September 9th Amigator blog Ami said: "Oriental Diamond makes you feel like 'Here Puffy comes!' doesn't it? Even I was like 'Wow!' already in the rehearsal. Mr.Tamio and Mr.Yosui are both so fantastic! That's what I felt."
(Thanks Mikachi and friends for translation help.)
