Super Anime Remix presents Techno Pop – Update

Posted by DanceMaster on March 31, 2009

Super Anime Remix presents Techno Pop
Release Date: 6/17/09
Price: 2381 yen

Would it be at all possible to have an anime remix album without “Sousei” or “Zankoku”? I guess the answer is a resounding no, because the tentative list for SAR Techno Pop has both. On the plus side, it also has “Naraku no Hana.”

Unlike the main SAR series, Techno Pop will be a single CD. Whether or not it will be a non-stop mix has yet to be determined. If the final list only has 13 songs, however, I’d expect full-length versions plus a short mega mix.

Super Anime Remix Touge 2 – Update

Posted by DanceMaster on March 30, 2009

Super Anime Remix Touge 2
Release Date: 5/27/09
Price: 2381 yen

The tentative list is out, and it’s an eclectic mix of anime, J-Euro, and, for some reason, Mega Man songs. “Airman ga Taosenai” has certainly been getting a lot of airplay recently.

Love ParaPara ~ Eurobeat Hits 30! – Final Release Info

Posted by DanceMaster on March 29, 2009

Love ParaPara ~ Eurobeat Hits 30!Love ParaPara ~ Eurobeat Hits 30!
Release Date: 4/8/09
Price: 2381 yen

The final list is out, and it’s essentially the same as the earlier one posted. The tracks have been switched around somewhat, but otherwise no real surprises. Well, Amazon do list track 26 as “Age Age Every Night,” but since the artist is listed as Coo Coo it’s safe to say it’s just a misprint.

According to Star Fire’s website, special DVD’s will be handed out at a special event on March 28. It also looks like you can get the DVD if you pre-order at Tsutaya. More info at their website: http://superloose.net/SF/index.php

Ghibli*Speed ~Piano Kumikyoku~ – Final Release Info

Posted by DanceMaster on March 28, 2009

Ghibli*Speed PianoGhibli*Speed ~Piano Kumikyoku~
Artist: Piano Master
Release Date: 4/3/09
Price: 2190 yen

The only thing seemingly more popular than anime dance compilations are piano house compilations, so why not combine both for a piano anime dance house compilation? Throw in some Ghibli and you’ve got a recipe for success.

Charlie – Charlie’s Party – Pre-Release Info

Posted by DanceMaster on March 27, 2009

Charlie’s Party
Artist: Charlie
Release Date: 4/29/09
Price: 1886 yen

Charlie is a UK R&B artist who has had some songs remixed for the Mega Trance series. The DJ U*Hey? and Nasca Joker remixes of her “Everyone Falls in Love” have never been released in full, so I’m somewhat hopeful that they’ll finally appear here. Then again, it looks like the focus will primarily be on house remixes. That’s not necessarily a bad thing if it means The Standard Club will be involved.

Anime*Max – Update

Anime*Max
Release Date: 4/22/09
Price: 2500 yen

Ventura Music confirmed! The producers of last year’s Anime*Mania and Techno Pop Anime will also be behind this latest Anime-themed dance compilation.

A slightly revised tentative track list has been revealed, for a total of 15 songs. That’s how many Anime*Mania had, so there’s good chance this list will be final.

Super Anime Remix presents Techno Pop – Pre-release Info

Posted by DanceMaster on March 25, 2009

Super Anime Remix presents Techno Pop
Release Date: 6/17/09
Price: 2381 yen

A new SAR release for the third month in a row. I can’t even remember the last time there were Dancemania releases three months in a row. This latest sub-series in the SAR series will focus on Techno Pop arrangements rather than the usual Eurobeat.

Pre-order at CDJapan.

Super Anime Remix Touge 2 – Pre-release Info

Posted by DanceMaster on March 24, 2009

Super Anime Remix Touge 2
Release Date: 5/27/09
Price: 2381 yen

The second release in the Touge series comes out a mere month after Super Anime Remix 3. It’s a little sad that the SAR series is currently more prolific than the Dancemania or even Trance Paradise series. I also don’t get why the single-disc releases in the Touge series are more expensive than the two-disc sets of the main series.

Anyway, there’s no early track list yet, but you can obviously expect lots of Akiba Koubou tracks. Red Monster will also be back with another collaboration with Tugumi.

Pre-order at CDJapan.

Release Date: 4/1/09
Price: 1905 yen

100% new material this time, with no repeats from Quake Trance. There are also no themes from Western shows or movies. I guess they’re saving those for the inevitable Cinema Trance 2.

Release Date: 4/1/09
Price: 1905 yen

“Caramelldansen” gets remixed for the umpteenth time on this 4th release in the UmaUma Trance series.

In happier news, Ryu* takes on “Airman ga Taosenai.” And yet another Ouendan song, “Kokoro Odoru,” gets the Exit Trance treatment. It won’t be long before Ouendan Trance, I’m sure!

Dancemania presents Natsu Monogatari 2009 supported by 9LoveJ – Pre-release Info

Posted by DanceMaster on March 20, 2009

Dancemania presents Natsu Monogatari 2009 supported by 9LoveJ (CD+DVD)
Release Date: 6/10/09
Price: 3000 yen

Natsu Monogatari returns for a third year in a row! Despite last year’s average release, it is nice to see the series return since it’s pretty much the only thing keeping Dancemania alive.

In the past, Natsu Monogatari albums were released on the last Wednesday of June, so theoretically NM 2009 should be released on June 24. However, the actual release date this year will be a few weeks earlier, on June 10. The change is most likely because Avex have decided to release Campus Summit 2009 on June 24, perhaps in an attempt to supplant the competition.

Release Date: 4/8/09
Price: 2381 yen

Just a quick update with a look at the cover art. As you can see, the logo has been completed changed, almost as if they’re trying to pretend it’s a new series. They’ve kept the same illustrator, however, so there’s some continuity with the character designs.

You can now pre-order at CDJapan.

Release Date: 5/8/09
Price: 951 yen

Quake had better be kidding about including Cascada’s “Faded,” as it’s well over a year old already. Heck, why not just throw “Bad Boy” in there, too?
