thanks for the new info Hamu!
i really like what they’ve done graphically wise as the teaser for the Uta Hime Best, as opposed to the previous more “old fashioned” (Empress Box Set) and “lame” (walk-of-fame-cross-my-palm Best Finger) efforts. this one’s breezy and a style reminiscent of Silent Love!
i’m proned to believing Iihitabidachi will be released as new material on the album instead of as a standalone single. if she’s clever, she’ll do that to secure better sales. but then, she can milk our love for her since i am willing to slurp up ANYTHING she releases these days. so yeah, bring in on, Akina!
i know it’ll most probably be a compilation across all Uta Hime series, but if i have it my way, i’d make overhauls to all selected tracks so they’re all renewed. but then again, i’ve always shuddered at her “self renewal works” (Regeneration horror, True Akina half heartedness, and SuperBest-where-in-the-world-is-the-remix-remix? oh i geddit, it’s in the heavier bass beats).
other dream list items even tho it’s not congruent with the theme: remixes of Raka Ryusui (ala Dinner Show ’05 version) – technically that’s a remake, no? hahahaha – and Hana yo Odore (can’t get enough of that song!! i swear she’s singing witchcraft to us!)
and finally, a non-stop dance remix of Destination – the album that shall have the honour of being the most ubiquitous album in my car, house, hotel, gym, bathroom… you get the drift.
i love you, Akina! thanks for keeping us hooked and continuing with the releases and i’m finally ok with the way you pronounce “gras rei. rey ey.”
