Taking a break + New additions to mp3 player

You always hear “time flies”, and it sure is the case here. 5 years really passed in a blink since LosslessONE was found. During all those years I stayed up numerous nights when possible to put out new releases asap, with all tags as accurate as possible. Those were the days I will never forget. Unfortunately, everything has to come to an end. I won’t call this the end of LonE, but since I’m the main ripper and I will be taking a long break, you can expect a major¬†decline in LonE’s activeness. I will still try to put out some personal picks from time to time if time allows. I hope you all enjoyed your time with us, I know I will miss it. ūüė¶

As for my mp3 collection, I have added 7 new songs to “complete” it for now. You can find them in Download section, with DDL available.

1. My Soul, Your Beats [Lia] (to be honest, to me this song is “okay” at best. The first 12 seconds of the song is the best part. I’m adding this song mostly because of my attachment to the show)
2. Brave Song [Tada Aoi] (love this song so much that I translated it. This is 1 of the only 2 translated lyrics I have submitted there, so you can imagine how much I love the song. Instrumetal version of this song is also highly recommended)
3. Get Back My Dear Friend [CHUA CHURAM feat. Sakakibara Yui] (one of her best songs as of late. Caught my attention right away when I listened to the album for the first time)
4. Ruri no Tori [Shimotsuki Haruka] (one of the 3 songs I picked from her latest album, “Michibiki no Harmony”. Also one of the songs that I should have added earlier. A very nice song to listen to at late night)
5. Omoi no Kanata [Shimotsuki Haruka] (I think this is her only upbeated songs in my collection. Might not be the best choice, but it just catches my attention somehow)
6. Snowdrop [Shimotsuki Haruka] (once it passes the introduction part, the rest of the song will just wrench your heart)
7. I have a dream [Kalafina] (a concert-encore-like song from their latest album)

PSP Marriage Royale -Prism Story- Character Song Album

If you have never heard of Marriage Royale series before, you can read up its wiki entry. Putting the harem story aside, its seiyuu cast is definitely a catchy one, and hence you can imagine its character song album is nothing less than an all-star (seiyuu) collection, as you can see from the tracklist below:

1. Yumemiru Sekai ga Hajimaru tomorrow [Asakura Miyako (CV. Kotobuki Minako)]
2. first love [Umeda Minami (CV. Yoshida Mayumi)]
3. Hop, Step, Full Full Jump! [Tenryuu Ena (CV: Shintani Ryouko)]
4. Futatsuiro [Shinjou Otoha (CV. Kitamura Eri)]
5. Fushigi… Naze ka na? [Saeki Sera (CV. Matsuki Miyu)]
6. Hello My Love [Daiba Minato (CV: Koshimizu Ami)]
7. Saikyou Love Link [Hamayuu Ebino (CV. Gotou Yuuko)]
8. White out [Hidaka Yakumo (CV. Takagaki Ayahi)]
9. Pink Days [Uwajima Iyo (CV. Toyosaki Aki)]
10.Nagareboshi Kirari [Nago Uruma (CV. Chihara Minori)]
11.Yume he Tsuduku Tabiji [Sanjou Asahi (CV. Morinaga Rika)]
12.Dokomade mo Anata to Isshoni [Akita Komachi (CV. Nakahara Mai)]
13.TWINS YELL (Bonus Track) [Miu & Miku (CV. Kuwatani Natsuko, Tomatsu Haruka)

There must be someone you like from that list (character-wise/seiyuu-wise/combination of both), right? ūüėČ

Cross Days Original Sound Track

It’s x Days, there are already plenty of discussions about the game (series) everywhere, so I will save it. Besides, I have yet to try out Cross Days, and strictly speaking I didn’t finish School Days & Summer Days. I have to say though, I was one of the first few¬†proud(?) ones to get the patch working on Summer Days and¬†try out Kokoro’s¬†H-scene.¬†ūüėÄ Anyway, like the previous works’ albums, Cross Days’ OST features OP/ED/Inserts etc. that are performed by singers whom you should be highly familiar with. Let’s take a look at the tracklist below¬†(those tracks without [ ] means they are BGMs, written by HIKO):

1. First Note [KIRIKO]
2. Hitotsuboshi [yozuca*]
3. be there [Rita]
4. timeless melody [Chata]
5. Eternal Flow [Ceui]
6. Sunadokei [Riryka]
7. First Note -Wake Up Ver.-
8. Aruhi no Dekigoto
9. Daisuki na Basho
10.Haruka na Mado no Akari
11.Aoki Shousou
12.Vale no Mukou
13.Jugyou ga Owatta!
14.Yaburekake no Kokoro
15.Nagai Kage, Kimi ni Todoke
16.Sono Page no Saki
17.Gikochinai Fureai
18.Jibun he no Uso
19.Nukumori ha Toki wo Tomeru
20.Eien nimo Kaegatai Mono
21.Makoto ni Ikidoori wo Kanjimasu
22.Tsume ga Amai!
23.Kimi ni Tsutaetai Koto
24.Yuuki wo Dashite Fumidasou
25.First Note -Mellow Reprise Ver.-

The songs are pretty okay, just that the OP song “First Note” sounds really depressing to me for some reason (nope, it’s not because of the lyrics, even though the lyrics isn’t exactly cheerful). I wonder if it’s just me. Anyway, “Brave Song” is occupying my mind too much right now to comment on anything else. Talking about that, our background BGM has been updated, read this post for more details.

Sakura no Mau Koro ni -Sotsugyou Album Dai Ichi Gakushou-

First of all, in case you wonder, this album has nothing to do with Higurashi or Umineko. Produced by Chambers Records, after¬†putting out¬†albums about summers and snowing winters¬†(Natsu Uta series and¬†Yuki Furu¬†Uta series. In fact, we still have Natsu Uta 2 -Kimi to Kanaderu Ai no Uta- on our current tracker), this time it’s about graduation. Like its previous albums, they have also put together a¬†group of recognizable singers together for this one, as you can see below:

1. Brand-New Spring [Rita]
2. Akaneiro no Kimi he [Oomori Mariko]
3. Ashita ni Mukatte [Yuduki]
4. a-tempo [yuiko]
5. Sotsugyou [yukana]
6. Sakura Illumination [Marie]
7. 2nd Introduction [Nakahata Takeharu]*
8. Sayonara Arigatou [Chata]
9. Bokura no Ashita [Uchiyae Yuka]
10.Let’s go on everyday -Kono Basho kara- [Mint]
11.Watashi no “Sayonara”. [Katakiri Rekka]
12.Boku ga Otona ni Naru Hi [Gojou Mayumi]

Personal pick of this album would be track 8. Even though I have been mentioning on IRC that Chata is the one who’s been standing¬†out lately among the “doujin queens”, no, I didn’t pick the song because of that reason. It’s a pure coincidence.

Veil’s 2nd album – color me pop

In case you wonder why¬†we did not release the 1st album, “assorted voices”, it’s because I have yet to get ahold of its scans. But anyway, let’s take a look at this one’s tracklist:

1. Shinsei Philosophy [Yui Yamamoto]
2. Hoshikuzu no Kizuna [Lia]
3. For the Truth [JURIE]
4. Kono Sora no Dokoka de [Aoi]
5. Fly away [misuzu feat. Aoi]
6. Aitakute [karuta & Hirona]
7. a drop in the water -duo version- [Lia & REI]
8. believe [YU‚áíKA & REI]
9. Tsubasa wo Kudasai -acoustic ver- [Lia & Aoi]
10.Kagayakeru Basho [Lia, Aoi, YU‚áíKA, karuta, REI, Hirona, misuzu]
11.Silent Message [Lia]

If you have my mp3 collection, you should recognize the first song, “Shinsei Philosophy”. Yes, it’s the OP song of the game “Yoake Mae Yori Ruriiro na -Moonlight Cradle-“. Yes, that means FEEEEEEEEENA (sorry, I just had to say that :P). And if you wonder about track 9, yes, it’s that “Tsubasa wo Kudasai”.¬†Two things I would like to note though: 1) there’s a picture of the singer(s) under each song’s lyrics, other than first one’s, which means Yamamoto’s is missing. That’s quite a pity; 2) “Aoi” in this album is Tada Aoi, who is recognized for performing the ED of GUNSLINGER GIRL -IL TEATRINO-, “doll”, and most lately the ED of Angel Beats!, “Brave Song”.

Shimotsuki Haruka – Michibiki no Harmony

Meeting the expectation, this album is nothing short of amazing. I mean, songs like “Kaze no Kotowari” (no, it’s not “Kaze no Ri” as listed at some places), “Ruri no Tori”, “Omoi no Kanata”, “Snowdrop”, “Eien”, etc. are there, how wrong can the album go?¬†Whether you are a fan¬†of Shimotsukin or not, this album should easily¬†impress you.

1. Kaze no Kotowari
2. Ruri no Tori
3. Everywhere With You
4. Omoi no Kanata
5. Hajimari no story
6. Snowdrop
7. Blade of Tears
8. Hoshi no Yume -Gathering the stars of love-
9. Rakuen no Kagi
11.Tabidachi no Uta
13.so happy days
14.Nemuri no Hate no Aoi Hana
15.Michibiki no Harmony

The most noteworthy song of this album is none other than the original song of this album, whose title is also used¬†for the album’s title, “Michibiki no Harmony”, featuring both music and lyrics written by Shimotsukin herself. The music is nice, but more importantly it’s the lyrics¬†that describes how she feels about her music, or how she would like you to feel about her music. If you can understand the lyrics, it’s a pretty interesting song.

New additions to mp3 player

Added 5 new songs. You can find them in Download section, with DDL available.

1. You & Me [Tamura Yukari feat. motsu from m.o.v.e] (even though it’s not exactly a song that you can loop continuously, it can get pretty addictive. It’s the kind of song that you want to listen from time to time)
2. natalis [eufonius] (if you downloaded our single “Online RPG MapleStory November Theme Song Single – Divinity”, of which the song is from, the cover drawing depicts the song, or the other way round. Its image is¬†like a fairytale world, but not exactly quite so. I’m not sure how to describe it well, you just have to listen to it yourself)
3. Hikari no Senritsu [Kalafina] (before my PV of that song on youtube got removed, lots of people commented that it’s the best Kalafina song. Maybe some of you don’t agree with it, but you can’t deny that it’s one of their best songs)
4. allegretto -Sora to Kimi- [KOTOKO] (OP of the so-famous high-ranked game “Kono Aozora ni Yakusoku wo”. Too bad there’s no English translation of the game, if it ever happens. It’s the game that gave me most laughs, and tears to many in the grand ending scene. The OP song reflects the game really well)
5. Sora no Sukima [Katakiri Rekka] (not sure why¬†I didn’t include this song earlier. It’s the insert song of yet another so-famous even-higher-ranked game “Sharin no Kuni, Himawari no Shoujo”. There is an English translation of the game, even though the translation seemed way too literal to me from the little bit I tried, you HAVE to play the game. It¬†has changed¬†the views of life¬†of many. As for the song itself, there’s only one word for it: passionate. Heartrending kind of passionate)
