Joysound presents Anison Trance Laboratory ~First Report~
Release Date: 3/2/11
Price: 2095 yen

A brand new series from Universal Music featuring trance covers of anime themes. The songs were picked out based on their popularity on the Joysound service. Exit Trance producers will supposedly be involved, while vocals will be supplied by various idols and idol groups.

If you get the first-press edition, you’ll receive a bonus CD with 15-20 minutes of content, likely karaoke versions, which would be rather fitting. You’ll also get a bath poster featuring the art of Kaworu Watashiya.

Exit Trance presents Speed Anime Trance Best 12 – Pre-release Info

Posted by DanceMaster on January 27, 2011

Exit Trance presents Speed Anime Trance Best 12
Release Date: 4/6/11
Price: 1905 yen

I was starting to think that Quake had abandoned the Exit Trance series completely, given that it’s been a while since the last ET release, and they didn’t even bother with a Speed Anime Trance Complete Best 3. Thankfully, the SATB series will continue with a 12th edition coming out this March. Pretty interesting choices so far. Some of the tracks will obviously translate easily to speed trance, but “Down Town” should be pretty crazy.

Comes with a fake credit card, and if you send in the survey you can get a bonus karaoke CD.

Anime Euro Best ~Girls Edition~ – Final Release Info

Posted by DanceMaster on January 19, 2011

Anime Euro Best ~Girls Edition~
Release Date: 1/19/11
Price: 2286 yen

Only 3 new songs, and one of those is a resing. 🙁 One of the new songs is by DJ Command, while Sumijun of Halozy is responsible for the other two. “Shinryaku no Susume” is certainly up to DJ Command’s usual standards, and I actually really enjoy Sumijun’s work, but 2286 yen for a handful of new songs sure is a lot to ask.
