Geki Atsu! Drama Euro Deka Hen – Update

Posted by DanceMaster on February 17, 2012

Geki Atsu! Drama Euro Deka Hen
Release Date: 3/7/12
Price: 2000 yen

DJ Command and 2bad…will not be on this compilation. Instead, you’ll just have to settle for Sugano(!), Dizzi Mystica(!!), and Y&Co.(!!!). Yup, Akiba Koubou went all out for this series, as evidenced by the latest group of guest arrangers that they’ve assembled. Sugano had mentioned on his website that he’d be doing some work with AKBK, and Dizzi Mystica collaborated with them a few times in the past, but the inclusion of Y&Co. is quite a surprise.

Elementas, Ovrar, Asahi, Sumijun, Tks, Beat Charger, and valle blanco round out the rest of the list, so you can expect plenty of variety. Vocalists include Satsy, Kei, Mi->Na, DJ Kazma, and Hiromi. There are also a number of instrumental tracks, including 3 tracks that were also covered on EMI’s Speed Deka. Kinda disappointed there’s no Rhythm & Police, though 🙁

Vocalo Dance – Update

Posted by DanceMaster on February 17, 2012

Vocalo Dance -Best Age! Tracks-
Release Date: 2/15/12 ⇨ 2/29/12
Price: 2190 yen

Vocalo Dance Mania! It looks like EMI are marketing this as part of the Dancemania series, as they’ve put a special site up for it: Vocalo Dance Official Website.

The first Vocaloid compilation from EMI comes with a bevy of bonuses. In addition to a special cardboard sleeve and picture label CD for all editions, first-press copies will also come with a special calendar and fake credit card. Retailers will also be distributing B2-sized posters on a first-come, first-served basis. If you go to the URL listed on the obi strip and answer a quick survey, you can also download some special wallpapers for your PC or smartphone, though this offer only lasts until August. CD Japan says there’ll be a sticker, but there’s no longer any mention of that on Amazon or EMI’s website.

As for retailer-exclusive bonuses, Animate will be offering a special “can badge,” which is just a fancy Japanese term for a pin. Tora no Ana will also have special can badge with a different design.

I can’t help but be disappointed by the track list, though. I was hoping for new arrangements, but most of these appear to be the original versions.

House Nation Platinum 2 – Final Release Info

Posted by DanceMaster on February 17, 2012

House Nation Platinum 2
Release Date: 2/15/12
Price: 2476 yen

Sequel to House Nation Platinum, which was released all the way back in 2009. Odd strategy, releasing a sequel so many years after the first came out. Like the First HN Platinum, this release focuses on chart-topping hits, though at this point some of the tracks are a bit dated.
