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~* ＾ ＾。
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。) ♪。。。
