It's probably "B.... is my worst enemy". Just take the initial letters of the names.

The first five letters were "Bxtce" instead of Bx222 according to the rule.

Why did you remove two words from my text?

Probably another Japanese substitution cipher. ⸚ is hyphen with diaeresis, so hyphen is a letter. I'm guessing that 9 is the final nasal.

The idea is that toad and clock are both period 2 oscillators, and that it is an eater 2.
Bx222 IS MY WORST ENEMY.

I haven't been able to find out the meaning of the little characters, which are ³, ⁹ and ᶻ. The little 3 corresponds to a little a, which apparently exists but I don't know what it means. The little 9 is probably ョ (little yo), which turns the previous syllable to cho/sho. The little z should probably be ッ (which doubles the consonant after it), except that it only appears before "yo" characters, which makes no sense. It's possible these may be typos and should be replaced with normal characters. Now, we run into an additional problem, which is that translation of katakana without spaces is hard.
(note: you may be able to "crack" the code by looking up the song and using the translated subtitles)

You also posted the word "rer" elsewhere.
Using erictom33's table, these correspond to "hi-n-to" (hint), and "su-i-su" (Swiss/Switzerland). Why didn't you try this?

Hint 1: This is a substitution cipher. Each group of 2 letters corresponds to (usually) one letter of plaintext.
Hint 2: Multiple ciphertext digraphs can correspond to the same letter of plaintext.
Hint 3: "hint" is "mwmtfgbh"
