Comiket 78 Previews and Anticipation

I wasn’t going to do this. I always plan that I will but I never do. However, given my free time and how excited I am, I suppose it’s better to do this here than spamming twitter.

Let’s start with the big one: PARAMOUNT FEVER!!!!!!!!!!11111 (the 1’s are actually apart of the name; I keep feeling the need to clarify that)

That’s right, the newest Albatrosicks album. Seems like it took forever, doesn’t it? It was only a year but still. It felt like forever. More so, given the fact that Star Cracker wasn’t their best work. This, however, looks a lot more promising. I listened to  a few tracks (pretty much all of them but I didn’t want to ruin it for myself by sampling them all) and it seems like more of what we started off with. Which sounded awesome. A lot less Quim? It sort of sounded like that. Also, who’s the third girl on the cover? I can’t place her exactly. Huh. Well no PV this time but there’s still a couple days. Star Cracker didn’t have a PV either, if you’ll recall. (It had the monologues though)

The next one I’m looking forward to is the one I look forward to every Comiket.

The new Motion Graphic! I’m not too impressed with the song this time around. It sounds a lot more generic and sounds like it’s missing the same emotion and feeling the original songs had. However, I haven’t heard it entirely yet so I’m really in no place to judge. Also, there have been other times when I judged harshly right off the bat. This will feel relevant to us too because most of us in the western fanbase have just finished EP6 within the last few months. So. Yeah. Yay relevancy!

Another Umineko one I’m looking forward to is Millenary for うみねこのなく頃に散 which is alone the lines of Observer -witch who lives- because, well, there both by Pre-Holder! You can hear the crossfade here.

Haha, this one I mostly want to listen to because the PV was hilarious. It was actually pretty catchy too. That Yuka isn’t even trying though.

I haven’t listened to any Frontier Create stuff though so I’m not sure to expect a drama album or an entire music album? Huh, well. Mostly I just want to hear cause of the video, like I said. That ExKeine is really cute too!

I’m no Angel Beats fan. Some know this. Many do not. However, this is just too amazing.

I don’t normally listen to TAMUSIC (yeah boo whatever) however I was curious and so now I can’t wait for this album. While I may dislike the show (and one character in particular… a lot) I like the music. Really though. I couldn’t think of a better circle to pull this off. You can give the crossfade a listen here.

That’s it for now. I have a list going on of albums I liked the CF of and would probably forget when Comiket rolls around. There’s still some time left before C78 so this may end up getting updated, hopefully.

    I have not heard anything by Albatrosicks however upon seeing the PARAMOUNT FEVER picture I can tell it must be somehow related to Miracle∞Hinacle somehow

    Well, you’re half right on that one. ALBATROSICKS (the group behind the new album, PARAMOUNT FEVER) is a sort of ‘spin-off’ of IOSYS feauturing Quim, miko and Arm. It’s like IOSYS producing an original album instead of an arrange album. Only with a storyline (sorta) and stuff.
