** It's worth pointing out that not only are the number of characters in each song symmetrical, but frequently the scripts used are symmetrical as well. For example, the first and eleventh tracks on ''Kalk Samen Kuri no Hana'' have two Kanji characters in their titles, while the second and tenth have eight katakana characters, and so on. Even when the characters themselves aren't symmetrical, she'll sometimes make the track listings symmetrical in other ways; for example, the even-numbered track titles on each disc of ''Utaite Myōri ~Sono Ichi~'' are written in English, while the odd-numbered ones are in Japanese (which does not always match with the language(s) sung in the songs).

And often there is thematic symmetry as well; for example, the first six songs of ''Shōso Strip'' describe a crime and the last six describe a punishment, with the first song translating as "I Am a Liar" and the last translating as "I Am an Addict". Or consider "Fair" and "Foul" on ''Sports''.

Considering the amount of control she has over her music and her eccentric personality, it can be argued that she does it on purpose.
