森川由綺 恋色空 (White Album Character Songs by Hirano♥Aya)

While adult visual novels brought to life~* through video games may be a genre of gaming which will never truly "translate" to outer markets outside of Japan, the possibility with anime♥ may perhaps prove more fruitful I wonder~?

The "White Album" series has now crossed over into anime♥ this winter and here one of its central characters Morikawa Yuki whom is voiced by multi talented seiyuu~* Hirano♥Aya has her very own solo single release~!! \(^o^)/☆~*~!

Two character songs~ are included along with karaoke tracks for both and I really love these cardboard style jackets which are meant to resemble mini vinyl record albums….here even the disc itself is picture labeled with a vinyl look~* ^ ^。

Morikawa Yuki "Koi Iro Sora" CD single can be ordered here at Cdjapan.

Morikawa Yuki: (CV: Hirano Aya)

It's been awhile since I've been this this~* in love with both tracks of a single this much!!! o(*´∀`)o゛♥♥♥ and here I've included the second track first as from your very first listen~* I think you'll find this most genki and upbeat melody♪ to be undeniable in its quest to charm~* you fully ^ ^!"Kanashimiyo, konnichiwa" is J-Pop♥ at its catchiest best~* and Hirano♥Aya's vocals here quite different from her styling and approach for much of her other solo~ works….I'm sure this song♪ will make you smile~* so much….kiite ne~ kono *~Kira kira~* melody! o(*´∀`)o゛。

Edit: I've just recently learned from Anise & Cloves (*Thank you~*!!!) that "Kanashimiyo, konnichiwa" is actually a cover song from an 80's idol, Saito Yuki! I'm thinking that White Album had Hirano♥Aya re~do a version as it's just so so much a catchy~* song♪!!!It was originally the opening theme~ for the anime "Maison Ikkoku" and Anise & Cloves also posted a link to the actual opening anime with this awesome song…it's embedded just below:


The title track "Koi Iro Sora" is much more an elegant~* composition with a beautiful arrangement from tip~toeing piano notes♪ which gradually build up to a sweeping~~* orchestration…cradling Hirano♥Aya's heart~♥ful performance~* in a melancholy draped~sweetness. Both tracks so so well written and performed making this much more like a double a side for sure….as these songs♪ are both are my current obsession~♥♥♥ ^ ^!

I so love~* what Ayachan's wearing for sleepy~time here! (*´∀`*)。。。and hm "♥JUICY?" I think I'll leave that up to interpretation~***(。ーωー。) ♪。。。

(Photo scans are from Hirano♥Aya's latest shashinshuu release "Brand New Day" which depicts in chapters, a day in the life~♥ from waking..to twilight…to epilogue~ ^ ^♥。

  1. Actually, I think the Kanashimiyo , Konnichiwa is actually a Yuki Saito (80's idol) cover from an intro of an older anime – "Maison Ikkoku"~ 😀 http://video.tiscali.it/canali/truveo/370330448.html

  2. A~h! I had no idea that this was a cover song?…interesting that White Album would use it as theirs also for their recent anime version…hm but maybe not surprising as it's such a catchy~* song ne~!! (*´∀`*)♪。 Saito Yuki's original version is so cute too~ and thank you for linking the opening anime clip…will embed here too in case anyone is interested~. I love that most of the song arrangement is very very similar and those pauses during the chorus really add a bit of extra impact too to the song in the original~.

  6. I always see these style of record vinyl like releases on Cdjapan with the cardboard sleeves and some even open up gateway style but they're mostly of American reissues~. I think you may like the song "Kanashimiyo, konnichiwa" as I've been learning that it's an 80's idol♥ release and it so has that true J-Pop touch~* to it's writing and melody (*´∀`*)。’
