Digital release of Buchiage Parance #11. Almost exactly the same as the CD release, right down to track lengths, except five of the tracks have been removed. Still, it’s only 1,200 yen, so if you don’t care about the DVD it’s not a bad option.

Buchiage Parance #11 (CD+DVD)
Release Date: 9/22/10
Price: 2848 yen

Right, let’s try this again. Victor Japan initially announced Buchiage Parance for release on March 24 but canceled the album soon after. Well, it looks like they’re giving it a second try this September. Again, it’ll be a CD+DVD release, with the CD featuring a non-stop mix of trance, euro, and psychedelic songs. All of the announced tracks so far are repeats from Trance Rave Best 19 or the Koakuma magic series.

Buchiage Parance 10*Special – Final Release Info

Posted by DanceMaster on September 18, 2009

Buchiage Parance #10Buchiage Parance 10*Special (CD+DVD)
Release Date: 9/23/09
Price: 2848 yen

The good news is that they changed the title to something a little more intelligible. The bad news is that the track list is mostly licenses from Exit Trance and Super Anime Remix, along with some repeats from Speed Anime M@ster. There are no actual repeats from previous Buchiage releases or even Euro! Panic, yet the list still looks rather stale. It doesn’t even have a new Kei song 🙁

The DVD has a surprising number of tracks, though I don’t know how many of them are ParaPara routines.

Buchiage Parance #10th Best – Pre-release Info

Posted by DanceMaster on August 30, 2009

Buchiage Parance #10th Best (CD+DVD)
Release Date: 9/23/09
Price: 2848 yen

The 10th release in the long-running Buchiage Parance/Trance series has a strangely perplexing title. Placing a # sign in front of an ordinal just strikes me as bizarrely redundant. Then again, this is the country that gave us Super Anime Remix Super Best. I really hope this isn’t another Best release, though, since they already released one shortly after Buchiage Trance #6. CDJapan’s description does mention that it’ll be a mix of best hits and new songs. Let’s just hope it’s more of the latter. #9 had mostly Akiba Koubou songs, and I’d expect this one to have those as well as Euro Panic! repeats.

The series has sold over 1,000,000 copies over the past few years, but sales have declined recently. With Wa Euro Best selling well, however, the appetite for Euro may be on the rise once again and we could see another surprise hit on our hands.

Pre-order at CDJapan. Amazon Japan also have it for only 2,452 yen.

Buchiage Parance #9 – Digital Downloads

Posted by DanceMaster on June 28, 2009

DanceBuchiage Parance #9 (Haishin Gentei Mix)
Release Date: 7/8/09
Price: 1905 yen

Victor Japan aren’t usually known for putting their albums up for download, so this comes as a bit of a surprise. The track list is mostly the same as the physical release, except with 5 tracks omitted (Caramelldansen and a few Zipang tracks, so no big loss). It’s unknown if the downloads will be of full versions or if it’ll be another non-stop mix. I’m crossing my fingers for full versions; the 2 bad techno mix of “Iteza” is 2 good.

Edit: It looks like the digital release has been canceled. 🙁

Buchiage Parance #9 – Final Release Info

Posted by DanceMaster on March 7, 2009

Buchiage Parance #9
Release Date: 3/25/09
Price: 2848 yen

No Euro Panic! repeats! All right, that’s not entirely true because there are a few on the DVD. Surprisingly, however, the CD appears to be mostly new songs and remixes from Akiba Koubou. A few of the tracks are even labeled as 9LoveJ remixes, so it seems that 9LoveJ are involved with this release.

Other tracks include the obligatory “Ponyo” and “Caramelldansen” from Quake. There are also a few songs from artists known as L-mode and Stylish Heart. I’ve never heard of them, nor could I find any further information on them.

The DVD mostly has tracks from Zipang along with the aforementioned Euro Panic! repeats.

Buchiage Parance #8 – Final Release Info

Posted by DanceMaster on September 3, 2008

Buchiage Parance #8Buchiage Parance #8
Release Date: 9/24/08
Price: 2648 yen

Oh, joy, both “Caramelldansen” and “Sousei no Aquarion.” We certainly haven’t heard those two enough this year! And as a bonus, there’s also “One Million Miles,’ which has only shown up a few dozen times on other compilations.

If all those Quake repeats weren’t enough, there are also quite a few repeats from Victor’s old eurobeat series, Euro Panic!, which was last seen in 2001. I really can’t believe that Victor are so cheap that they can’t bother licensing newer eurobeat from Saifam.

Ah well, there are at least a few new songs on this, including Kei’s cover of “Tamashii no Refrain.”

Just a quick update about Buchiage Parance #8. The new Kei track will be a cover of the anime song, “Tamashii no Refrain.” It’s unknown if it’ll be trance or euro, but Kei has been doing a lot of euro lately.

Buchiage Parance #8 – Pre-release Info

Buchiage Parance #8
Release Date: 9/24/08
Price: 2648 yen

Before there was Hime Trance, there was Buchiage Trance. Victor’s Trance Rave sub-series was the best-selling trance series in Japan until Hime Trance came along. It’s been struggling in recent years, and by the time the seventh release came out they rebranded the series as Buchiage Parance with a new emphasis on eurobeat and Para Para (hence the title), though trance, techno, and psychedelic continued to be featured. The upcoming eighth release continues the Para Para theme and will once again come with a DVD. No early list yet, but expect Kei to appear.
