Yun*Chi has teamed up with some notable(ish) people like livetune and Taku Takahashi for this anisong album which features a delightful music selection. That alone sets it apart from the rest.
The only work of hers I’m familiar with is Log Horizon though so I’m not super familiar with her work before going into this.
This is it folks. The final one. I’ve bemoaned having to do this series for a long time but really I could have stopped at any time. However, honestly it brings in the most people and I’ve enjoyed talking to everyone over the years about the albums as they come out. People letting me know the album is out, anticipating my post and then chatting about what songs we liked best. I liked all those things so I did these posts even as I grew more and more disenchanted with the series.
So I’m not that sad it’s over. And I know I keep saying this but I do have another really big Exit Trance post that has been a draft for probably at least a year now. Maybe that’ll come out eventually.
Alright so if I even began to TRY and explain how excited I was about this album, I doubt I could explain how thrilling this was. Regardless of how I have felt about IOSYS in the past and how I feel about them now, ALBATROSICKS has always had a special spot in my heart. After all, their first album came out seven years ago. Months after this blog was started even!
Still, the last album had been Rebirth Era (which was my favourite of their entire discography) but came out at the very end of 2011. There was a Best Of album and then nothing. It seemed like all hope was lost and that the group was done for.
Obviously that isn’t the case now and I couldn’t be happier! (Now if only I could get my hands on Rebirth Era too…)
It would have been easy to fit this in the Feature but eh from the looks of it, this series could really be ending soon so I’ll just stick it out.
As I was filling in the info for this, I noticed the site copy and pasted some stuff from the last album. Haha. Not the first time their own site has been incorrect but I guess at this point it’s not top priority for them.
