Geki Atsu! Drama Euro Kizuna Hen – Update

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

I hesitated to pre-order this fearing that it would be another collection of repeats, but this seemingly final list contains only 3 repeats out of 15 total tracks so I’m sold! Even though it’s only 15 tracks, it’s still being billed as a non-stop mix, however.

It’s been far too long since Hime Trance queen, Kei, has been featured on a major release, so I’m glad Akiba Koubou continue to utilize her. Nagisa is also featured, but her sole song is a repeat. :/ For some reason many utaite appear on AKBK release under different pseudonyms, so for those wondering, Maier is actually Yuge, W-Y is Yamadan and No Doubt is Nodoame. There are a number of new, unfamiliar names here, however, which leads me to wonder if they’re also just aliases.

Baby Boom (Single)
Artist: Smile.dk
Release Date: 2012

Good news, everyone! Hot off the heels of Cecilia’s pregnancy, Veronica just announced that she’s pregnant with her second child. To celebrate, they’ve written a new song called “Baby Boom.” The title alone sounds like it’ll make for prime bubblegum dance. No release date has been set yet, as the song is still in production.

Price: 2190 yen

It’s taken a while, but even EMI couldn’t resist jumping on the Vocaloid bandwagon. Their first Vocaloid compilation will focus on Miku dance anthems. The CD will have a full-color picture label and will come in a special sleeve case, but other than that there haven’t been any other bonuses revealed. Right now there are 14-16 tracks planned. Whether they’ll use the originals or have remixes is still up in the air.
