On August 26 in Ikebukuro Sunshine City alpa fountain plaza, palet held an event for their 3rd major single “VICTORY”. This is their first single since Yumi Nakano joined the group in June, making palet a 7-member group.
アイドルユニット「palet」が、新メンバーの中野佑美を迎えて7人組となって初となるシングル『VICTORY』の発売を記念して、8月26日に池袋サンシャインシティ・アルパ噴水広場にて発売記念イベントを行った。

Dressed in their colorful outfits from the music video, palet was greeted by waves of applause and shouts of joy when they appeared. Performing three songs, which included “VICTORY”, its coupling song “Glory Days”, and “Keep on Lovin’ You” fans were heated up instantaneously.
カラフルな7色の衣装に身を包んだpaletが登場すると、集まった多くのファンから拍手と歓声が沸き起こり、力強くも聞き心地のいい新曲『VICTORY』やカップリング曲『Glory Days』など3曲を披露するとファンも一気にヒートアップした。

Following the self introductions, Mitsuki Kimijima gave her thoughts on the new song: “In this world where people can get hung up on winning or losing, for me, because this is a song which has a reassuring message about overcoming, every time that we sing this song, I receive a lot of power (from it)”.
その後のMCで改めて自己紹介をした後、新曲について君島光輝は「勝ち負けにこだわってしまう世の中ですが、まずは自分自身に打ち勝って上を目指して行こうという心強いメッセージが込められた曲なので、私たち毎回歌うたびにパワーを沢山もらっています」と紹介した。

Ichirou Mizuki, the “Emperor of Anime Songs” made an appearance as a special guest at the event. The venue came together as one as fans shouted “Z!” during his performance of his famous “Mazinger Z theme song”. When Mizuki Kimoto commented about it, “Big Brother” Ichirou gave a lecture about the true meaning of “Z” and how to do it properly to the members. They then shouted together “Aiming for the summit, Z!” (teppen mezashiteru zeeeeto!), while striking the famous pose.
 また、アニメソングの帝王・水木一郎がスペシャルゲストとして登場。名曲『マジンガーZ』の歌を披露するとファンも一緒になって「ゼーーット!」と掛け声を発し、会場に一体感が生まれた。そして木元みずきが「ゼーーット!」という掛け声が好きとコメントすると、水木はpalet全員に「ゼーーット!」の意味と振りをレクチャー。そしてファンを交えて全員で「テッペン目指してるーゼーーット!」と高らかに叫んだ。

In a gesture of praying for the success of palet’s single “VICTORY”, Mizuki and palet collaborated to sing another of his big hits, “Combattler V theme song”. Kimoto brought the mini live to a close by declaring, “Because my beloved Ichirou Mizuki came to support us today and we were able to do the “Z!” together, I will do my best, believing that we can take that summit!”
 さらに、アニメ『コン・バトラーV』の“V”は『VICTORY』の“V”ということで、新曲『VICTORY』の大ヒットを祈願して、水木の代表曲『コン・バトラーVのテーマ』をpaletとコラボ歌唱。最後に木元は「今日は私の大好きな水木一郎さんが来てくれて「ゼーーット!」を一緒にやれたので、私たちは絶対にテッペンを取れると信じて頑張っていきます」力強く宣言し、ミニライブは幕を下ろした。

When I heard from another reporter that “VICTORY” was going on sale the same day as AKB48’s new single “Kokoro no Placard”, they asked palet if they thought that they could claim “VICTORY”. Yui Fujimoto answered, “Because we received power from Mizuki-san, I think it would be great if we keep steadily moving toward the summit.” Kimijima added, “Our feelings will not lose to them!” When asked about their expected ranking in this week’s Oricon, the members of palet exclaimed in unision, “There’s only the summit (#1 ranking)!”, meaning that they’re hoping to somehow knockdown AKB48.
 ライブ後の取材では、新曲『VICTORY』の発売日とAKB48の新曲『心のプラカード』の発売日が一緒ということでVICTORY(勝利)できそうか聞かれると、藤本結衣は「水木さんにパワーをいただいたので、どんどんテッペンに行けたらいいなと思います」、君島は「気持ちは負けていません!」とそれぞれコメント。週間ランキングの目標順位を聞かれると、palet全員が口を揃えて「テッペンしかないです!」と打倒AKB48を掲げた。
