We still have about a week or two until Comiket and you know what? I’m more excited, at this point, about the upcoming OST’s about to be released instead of what I’m expecting from Comiket. We have Katanagatari’s second OST on the 22nd and Panty & Stocking’s OST exactly a week after. It’s going to be good listening all around.
ALBATROSICKS – MERGE THE STRAWBERRY
It looks like Albatrosicks will be screwing us over treating us to a remix album for their winter release. It appears to be their only release for us which is a little bit like a kick in the face but I can’t really complain. It just seems like they passed most of the work on instead of creating something new. Eh. The previews on the site for the five tracks being remixed (ミコリザ4世, Eternal Voyage, 聖樹, Cosmo Phoenix, and ストロベリーラブジェネレイター) are pretty meh but perhaps a full version will change that opinion. It usually does. Some of the remixers include D.Watt of OTAKU-ELITE RECORDINGS (/IOSYS), Minamotoya of MINAMOTORANCE and REDALiCE.
Also, it appears there will be a doujin being released as well. But it will most likely never be seen by us.
Melodic Taste – Anime Song Orchestra
There is nothing I love more than a diversified tracklist when it comes to anime theme arranges. Anybody can do the Eva theme, anybody can do Uninstall (they do manage to squeeze in a Genesis of Aquarion but we can overlook that). But if you do unique(ish) titles like this, you will instantly win a thousand times in my book. That is why, as I browsed along, I was shocked and excited when I saw Zakuro on the cover of this. I ignored the slut though. Orchestrated isn’t usually my tpye of music but this looks like it’ll be hard to pass up. Feautring Moon Signal from Otome Youkai Zakuro, Renai Circulation from Bakemonogatari, Higurashi no Naku Koro ni, and Strike Witches 2.
I’ll update this more (hopefully) as we get closer to C79 with things relevant to the interest of this blog.
