Protip: If someone tells you they’re listening to hope. They are most certainly referring to Track 02 from the Tomoyo After Original Soundtrack, which was composed by Maeda Jun and is 02:43 in length.


C75: 5? and more

The road to C75 is getting shorter…

BLACK ANGEL has their C75 radio up (just click on the 再生 button). Playlist is here. You should try it out if you’re wondering what to expect from this year’s event. They even have full albums for you to listen to~
Twenty or so releases are added to the radio each day, so don’t fret if they don’t have what you’re looking for. :0

Before I begin, here’s some news tidbits about doujin related stuff:
– Shikata Akiko’s 3rd album “Harmonia” will be released on 02/18

Chaos;Head and Itou Kanako

“Sono me wa dare no me?”

Itou Kanako first caught my attention with the Myself;Yourself anime ED, Kimi to Yozora to Sakamichi to, and has managed to always draw an interested eye ever since. And when that artist does three different openings for the same franchise, as in the case of Chaos;Head, we get something like this:

PC Version: Find the Blue

Mysterious with low-key tension. It builds up to the chorus, and holds the listener there before letting them down calmly at the end.

Anime Version: F.D.D.

An attempt to be edgy accompanied by a rushed and uninteresting beat and doesn’t actually go anywhere. Much like the anime.

Xbox 360 Version: fake me

Catchy and with a quick beat right from the start. It starts off with energy and maintains it throughout. At least, it does so far.

It’s amusing to analyze the artist’s feelings and approach with respect to each version. While they’re all from the same franchise, each has a unique tone to its own that is representative of the rendition its portraying.

Or perhaps this was all just an excuse for me to post fake me somewhere, as it’s been stuck in my head for the past week.


anNina’s first mini album “natal”

So it turned out that I made a typo in the filename of the latest release “[LonE]_aaNina_-_natal_[w_scans]_(FLAC).rar“, the artist name is supposed to be “anNina”, however the artist name is correctly stated in the tags of the music files so I won’t be releasing a patch or re-release the whole thing. Personally I found the album a bit too weird for my taste, how about you guys?
