Geki Atsu! Drama Euro Kizuna Hen – Pre-release Info

Posted by DanceMaster on November 18, 2011

Geki Atsu! Drama Euro Kizuna Hen
Release Date: 1/25/12
Price: 2000 yen

It’s been a while since a Geki Atsu! release (May 2011 to be exact), so I thought Tokuma had abandoned the series. Well, the new year will bring not one, but TWO new releases in the Akiba Koubou-produced series. Whereas previous albums focused on anime and pachislot themes, these two new albums will instead include themes from J-Drama.

Another Infinity make two appearances here, one of them featuring Mayumi Morinaga. Rap Bit, Sexy Synthesizer, and 40mP are just some of the other producers who contributed.

First album from DJ Miya, who has been a frequent N.O.-SYO collaborator in the past and has made numerous appearances on Quake albums.

Best Idol – Final Release Info

Posted by DanceMaster on November 14, 2011

Best Idol Non Stop Mixed by DJ Mocchi
Release Date: 11/16/11
Price: 1800 yen

Previously known as Idol Euro. I’m not sure why they changed the name; the old one was far more descriptive. Anyway, cover art and a seemingly final track list have been released. Half of the album is composed of repeats or resings, and many of the tracks from the early list didn’t make it. Worst of all, there’s no Shihori. 🙁

Release Date: 11/23/11
Price: N/A

Tsutaya-exclusive collection of songs from the various Utatte Mita Collection singles. Not only is it exclusive to Tsutaya, but it’s also for rental only. Seems like a strange business move. It’s almost as if they’re begging you to rent and rip the disc.
