SAR Super BestMelodic Lover Digital Album

Price: 2400 yen

Melodic Lover was a CD originally released in 2008. It received an iTunes digital release on the same day as the CD. Now, almost eight years later, Universal randomly decided to release another digital album with longer edits and more songs, some of which originally appeared on FARM’s Love Para series. Right now it’s only available on Amazon JP and a few other Japanese stores.

SAR Super BestSuper Anime Remix Super Best
Release Date: 7/22/09
Price: 10,000 yen

Super Anime Remix Super Best originally came out in July of 2009, but about a year later it was discontinued and any trace of it was expunged from Dreamusic’s site. The 2CD+DVD set became quite a rarity. Then in 2015, SARSB randomly popped up on iTunes with all 50 songs completely intact in non-stop mix form. The kicker, however, was that they didn’t allow for the album to be purchased as a whole, meaning you’d have to buy each of the tracks individually for 200 yen. That means 10,000 yen for the entire album. Yeah, good luck with that.

Kantai Collection, frequently shortened to “KanColle” or “KanKore,” was a browser game with a warship theme released in 2013. For some reason it features girls dressed as warships, because Japan.

Super Euro Smash Vol. 6
Release Date: 12/26/14
Price: 1000 yen

It’s been a while since I’ve done a roundup of doujin releases, so in honor of the upcoming Comiket and M3 Spring 2015 I’ll be catching up on recent releases and previewing future releases.

First up is sixth release in the Super Euro Smash series, which was released during Comiket 87 late last year, almost a year after Vol. 5. 2014 wasn’t a very good year for Akiba Koubou, to put it lightly. They had a few repeat-laden releases in the first half of the year, but the second half saw almost nothing from them. Even this release is just a non-stop mix featuring repeats from volumes 4 and 5.
