HIMEKA Debut Single Announced

Sony Music Shop Link (also listed on various other CD sites)

The debut single of our fellow friend/IRC user/anime fan/whatever-you-might-want-to-call-her, HIMEKA, has been officially announced! If you didn’t know already, she’s singing the OP song of this season’s show, Senjou no Valkyria. I’m going to save the speech here of how we have seen her coming all the way to where she is now, etc etc. However, if you have no idea of anything about HIMEKA at all, I do have to let you know that at least.

Wikipedia entry about her (nope, it’s not written by me)

The links of her blog and official site are also listed there. To show our support, LonE will not be releasing her single which is due on 5/27. We have also got the words of the other Rizon music group, Nipponsei, that they will do the same. I urge you to also show your support by purchasing her debut CD.

ef – a tale of melodies. ORIGINAL SOUNDTRACK 2 -felice-

Since I introduced the 1st soundtrack, here comes the 2nd, “felice“. Let’s see… I would say the featured BGM of this OST is the 10th track, “It returns to the dark”. I bet some of you might say it’s the 33rd, “It through all eternity”, but it’s the 10th one that makes me feel like seeing a grand, heroic ending in front of my eyes, regardless of the anime scene it’s played in. An image (insert?) song, the lyrics’ed version of “A moon filled sky”, performed by Mizuki’s seiyuu, is also included in this OST.

2/25-2/28 Releases

So on this big release day, tokyotosho decides to go down. Oh well, just stay tuned to this post, I will update it whenever there’s a new release. We’re expecting no less than a dozen (if not two) releases in the coming 3 days.

1. Maria-sama ga Miteru 4th Season ED Single – Kumori Garasu no Mukou [Hikita Kaori] (flac, mp3)

2. Akikan! OP2 Single – Juicy Extacy [Little Non] (flac, mp3)

3. Sora wo Miageru Shoujo no Hitomi ni Utsuru Sekai ED Single – Hikari to Yami to Toki no Hate [Ceui] (flac, mp3)

Comment: this one is good. Really good. Get it even if you’re not watching the show.

4. HiNA [Hinagiku Katsura starring Shizuka Ito] (flac, mp3)

Comment: ok, I’m not exactly a fan of Hinagiku, but even so I still quite like this album. We also included the Limited Disc, which features a symphonic medley of 4 of the songs. If you’re a Hinagiku fan and not getting this, I’m telling you… IT’S A SIN.

5. Zettai Karen Children ED4 Single – Soushunfu [Hirano Aya, Shiraishi Ryouko, Tomatsu Haruka] (flac, mp3)

6. GA-REI -zero- Character Song Vol.2 Jingujin Ayame & Nikaido Kiri [Aizawa Mai, Tsuchiya Maki] (flac, mp3)

7. Asu no Yoichi! Character Song Vol.1 Ibuki Ikaruga [Satou Rina] (flac, mp3)

8. Asu no Yoichi! Character Song Vol.2 Ayame Ikaruga [Tomatsu Haruka] (flac, mp3)

9. Fly To The Future [Karen Girl’s] (flac, mp3)

Comment: their first and last album, because they’re graduating from elementary school soon (hence not loli anymore). As you can expect, all the Zettai Karen Children’s songs are there, plus 3 songs I don’t remember hearing before. Lolicons must get. Here’s the complete tracklist:

  1. Pikatto Kiratto! Dash Girl’s
  2. Over The Future
  3. Top Secret
  4. Zettai love X love Sengen!!
  5. FULL THROTTLE
  6. MY WINGS
  7. Bye! Bye! Bye!

10. ef – a fairy tale of the two. ORIGINAL SOUNDTRACK “Alato” [Tenmon, Eiichiro Yanagi, Harada Hitomi] (flac, mp3)

Comment: soundtrack of the games (both, i.e. first tale and latter tale). It has 3 discs, that’s why the size. All the tracks in both games should be there. It’s not exactly a 2/25 release (it’s C75, actually), but no one would mind, right? 😛 The games’ BGMs are better than anime’s imo, so if you love the anime’s OSTs, you should get this one too. All 3 theme songs are also included.

11. Merry! Merry-go-round [Satou Hiromi] (flac, mp3)

Comment: an easily overlooked singer. Her new album, “Merry! Merry-go-round”, features a few songs that I like, e.g. Taiyou no Aria, Sayonara, Tsunagaru Mirai. Give it a try.

12. Melonbooks 10th Anniversary Memorial Song Single – I’ll be there [Sakakibara Yui] (flac, mp3)

13. Gundam 00 Second Season Insert Song Single – TOMORROW [Tsunematsu Ayumi] (flac, mp3)

Comment: aka Marina Ismail. Not really fond of the song personally but I’m not watching the show. Maybe the ones who do will feel differently.

14. FictionJunction – Everlasting Songs (flac, mp3)

Comment: read here.

15. Toaru Majutsu no Index ED2 Single – Chikaigoto -Sukoshi dake Mouichido- [IKU] (flac, mp3)

Comment: pop-like feel, but I don’t hate it. The c/w song, on the other hand, is a slow and peaceful song.

16. N’s [Noto Mamiko, Gotou Mai, Shimizu Kaori, Ueda Kana, Satou Rina] (flac, mp3)

17. Toaru Majutsu no Index Original SOUND Track 1 [Iuchi Maiko, Kawada Mami, IKU] (flac, mp3)

Comment: with scans, finally.

18. Yoake Mae Yori Ruriiro na -Moonlight Cradle- OP Single – Shinsei Philosophy [Veil ∞ Yui Yamamoto, chicchi] (flac, mp3)

Comment: read here.

19. Xbox 360 CHAOS;HEAD NOAH -TRIGGER 5- Kusunoki Yua [Takahashi Chiaki] (flac, mp3)

20. Xbox 360 CHAOS;HEAD NOAH -TRIGGER 6- Aoi Sena [Nabatame Hitomi) (flac, mp3)

21. Xbox 360 CHAOS;HEAD NOAH OP&ED Single – fake me [Itou Kanako] (flac, mp3)

22. Mamiko Noto Character Song Collection (flac, mp3)

ef – a tale of melodies. ORIGINAL SOUNDTRACK -elegia-

ef, don’t you just love it. It might have made you sad, it might have made you cry, it might have made you /wrist, but whether you love the show or hate it, its music should have impressed you. Here we introduce the 1st OST of melodies, “elegia“. The 15th track, “Twins, separate place”, is the featured track of this OST (although personally I think the 17th track of memories’ 2nd OST fortissimo, “True feelings”, is the most epic). Enjoy. 🙂

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~

Kannagi ED PV – Musuhi no Toki

It seemed people really liked the OP song of Kannagi “motto Hade ni ne!”, my posted PV of it on youtube has lots of hits and comments, but personally I definitely prefer the ED, “Musuhi no Toki”. After intensive hunting I finally found the DVD! Here’s the PV encoded from it, enjoy. 🙂
