Exit Tunes at C79!

Posted by DanceMaster on December 31, 2010

Quake will once again have an Exit Tunes booth at the 79th Comic Market this December, where they’ll be selling exclusive merchandise.

First up is the Exit Tunes 2010 Winter Comi Goods Set. For only 3,000 yen, you’ll get:

  • 1. Original Super Big Size Paper Bag – A super big bag to carry all of your Comiket goodies. Features original Exit Tunes art.
  • 2. Mikeou Special Color Print – A special illustration done by the artist, Mikeou, just for C79.
  • 3. Akane Ikegami Special Bath Poster – A special bath poster illustrated by Akane Ikegami.
  • 4. Mana Mitui Special Desk Mat – A special desk mat featuring art by Mana Mitui.
  • 5. Matsuda98 Special Clear Book Cover – A special paperback book cover drawn by Matsuda98
  • 6. Chan×Co Clear Bookmarks – A set of 6 bookmarks illustrated by Chan×Co.
  • 7. 2011 Speed Anime Trance Best Model Desk Calendar – A 2011 desk calendar featuring cover art from various SATB releases

20 random sets will also come with posters signed by Mikeou. Not quite as good as the Summer set, I think. I really liked those alternate covers they had.

More merchandise after the jump.

Posted by DanceMaster on December 29, 2010

Anime Euro Best ~Best Edition~
Release Date: 2/23/11
Price: 1905 yen

Seriously?! Dreamusic will be releasing an AEB best-of collection next February despite there only being 3 albums in the series so far, and a majority of those tracks were repeats from the Super Anime Remix series. The only upside about this release is that it’s 2000 yen instead of the usual 2400 yen.

30 tracks in all, with perhaps 2 or 3 new songs.

Anim80s – Final Release Info

Posted by DanceMaster on December 19, 2010

Anim80s – Anime Hits in 80s Disco Style (Animeighties)
Release Date: 12/22/10
Price: 1886 yen

I didn’t think it could get any stranger than Ghibli Reggae (yes, it’s real), but somehow DJ Yossy and EMI have managed to create an even more bizarre amalgam of musical styles. Anim80s features popular anime themes, including many recent ones, done in 80s disco style. That means a booming bassline, 80s synths and, of course, hand claps! Think Dancemania Super Classics/80s, except with anime themes.

Mind you, the synths don’t come across too well in the video, and not all of the songs quite hit the mark, but all in all it’s a fantastic release for fans of that classic PWL/SAW sound. I’ll have a full review up shortly. In the meantime, you can also download the album from iTunes Japan for 1200 yen. Unfortunately, iTunes doesn’t have full versions. It’s just the same non-stop mix as the CD. 🙁

Also worth mentioning is that technically Akiba Koubou didn’t produce most of the CD. Instead, many songs were outsourced to dance Beyond, who have previously worked on Hyper Yocomix and the bootleg Hime Tra series from Get Over the Records. Many tracks were also done by Youhei Fujita. Rayto ended up with 3 tracks, while DJ Command arranged only one song on the album.
