Last time it took me 2 years to get my 2012-2013 list out. LOL This year, I’m early. I’m pretty happy with my picks at the moment, so I hope nothing mind-blowing pops up in these last remaining weeks of 2014. In the meantime~ you know where to go.
Archives For comeback
OMO~ OMG xD
According to the site formerly known as Nippon Cinema, Eigapedia, Shunji Iwai is working on an animated prequel of Hana & Alice, because- WHY NOT? It’s always good to have Yu Aoi back together with Iwai, despite the lack of Noboru Shinoda and Iwai’s uncertain background in animation. xD But I have a weakness for Yu Aoi voice-over acting. Both Aoi and Anne Suzuki were back in their respective roles, and apparently are done with their recording, telling us the story of how their friendship became what it was.
The production teased already with brief stills of the movie, and rough vignettes of the animated frames. The movie is set to open some time in February next year.
User Plano Piloto has translated the audio and on-screen text:
Hana: By the way, what’s your name?
Alice: Arisugawa Tetsuko
[Alice, the most powerful transfer student in history.]
Hana: I am-
Alice: Arai Hana-san.
[Hana, the most powerful hikikomori in history.]
Hana: Why do you ask knowing it?
Alice: Eh? You asked my name, you hikikomori.
[The world’s smallest murder case happened when the two met.]
Hana: I don’t enjoy being one.
[The first animated feature film by Shunji Iwai.]
Alice: A murder case?
Hana: Want to know what happened?
[Voice Actors / Yu Aoi as Alice / Anne Suzuki as Hana]
Alice: Well… I’m not sure.
Seo Taiji’s been busy this past week with the release of both versions of Sogyeok-dong (소격동) [IU Version][Seo Taiji Version], and now here’s the much awaited teaser for Christmalo.win (크리스말로윈), which will be his 9th album.
And it will release the same day as Marit Larsen’s 4th album!
So much music~
I felt kinda okay-ish when the song was leaked a couple of weeks ago, but now I kinda have started to really like it. Marit Larsen’s I Don’t Want to Talk About It shall be included in Marit’s 4th full-length studio album titled When the Morning Comes .
I wonder if it will be available in Amazon. I think it’d be sad to discontinue my Marit album collection, even though -according to my records- I’ve shifted 99% of my music activities to stream and downloads. With a record of just one physical album released in 2013 (which was a special gift I got).
Good news and bad ones~
First, about a week or two ago Yuguo announced that they were finally releasing their third full studio album Sunset Strip (日落大道), which seemed like it had been in the planning for ages .
It’s the 23rd in China, and it happened!
You can listen to the album (and download the songs) via Xiami.
