Super Euro Smash Vol. 6 – Final Release Info

Posted by DanceMaster on March 15, 2015

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.

Super Anime Freak – Digital Downloads

Posted by DanceMaster on April 14, 2014

Super Anime Freak
Release Date: 4/2/14
Price: 900 yen

The CD editions came out in late February, but digital versions of these three Akiba Koubou-produced albums just popped up on April 2. Unfortunately, the digital versions are all non-stop mixes. What’s even worse is that they’re all just under an hour long. Still, at least they’re charging almost half what the physical editions cost.

Anison Euroid Mix ~Mahou Shoujo Hen~ – Pre-release Info

Posted by DanceMaster on March 13, 2014

Anison Euroid Mix ~Mahou Shoujo Hen~
Release Date: 4/25/14
Price: 1800 yen

The second entry in the Anison Euroid series, which pairs eurobeat anison covers with vocoder vocals. The first album was recently made available digitally worldwide, such as on Amazon MP3. It doesn’t sound like they used Vocaloid, though. I think they just took the existing vocals and tweaked them to sound like Vocaloid. I have no idea what the hell the point of that is.
