Wa Euro Premier Best – Pre-release Info

Posted by DanceMaster on May 26, 2010

Premier EuroWa Euro Premier Best
Release Date: 7/21/10
Price: 2171 yen

Uggh, you’ve got to be kidding me. 7 songs from Wa Euro Best, 6 from WEB 2, 6 from WEB 3, and 4 “new” songs. The first Wa Euro Best was already full of repeats, and now we have to be subjected to them again? Even worse is the fact that this best-of album is more expensive than normal.

The new songs aren’t really too new, either. “Cat’s Eye” and “Hoshizora no Okurimono” could just be the original versions with different vocals. The only song I’m looking forward to is the new remix “Du-Du Di-Da.” It better not be just a re-edit of the Red Monster mix….

I guess Natsu Monogatari is officially dead, then. 🙁

RippleAD Best GigAnime*Dance Best Gig
Release Date: 5/26/10
Price: 2381 yen

18 new songs and 14 repeats. I don’t get the need for the repeats. All they’re doing is taking time away from the new songs.

It seems that CDJapan won’t be carrying it, but it is in stock at HMV Japan.

Also out is a related release from Nomiko, who sings two tracks on AD Best Gig. Ripple*Ripple Twinkle Show! features the original version of “Ripple+Ripple.”

Exit Trance presents UmaUma Dekiru Trance wo Tsukutte Mita 8 – Final Release Info

Release Date: 6/2/10
Price: 1905 yen (Regular Edition) or 3143 yen (Limited Edition)

I’m really surprised to not see “Scatman.” Looks like a fairly interesting mix of tracks otherwise. I do spot a handful of repeats, but it is nice to see the return of Acid=Stone Valley. Still no B.U.S., though, and I’m a little afraid that the Vocaloid artists are starting to take over.

The limited edition comes with a figure of Miko Hutae, the cover girl from UmaUma Trance 3.
