New Halko Momoi album release date set for August 9th
Way back in January, I posted a small note about a planned Momoi album. Then it was never discussed again and I forgot about it. So imagine my surprise when Plug announced a release date for "Momo-i quality ~Best of Momoi~", a new compilation album featuring much of her post-UNDER17 work. The album will go on sale August 9th, 2006 for 3000 yen (3150 after tax, which is irrelevant if you are ordering outside of Japan).
Although Momoi may have dropped some hints during her fanclub concert earlier this Sunday, Plug says they will release more details at a later time so there is no official word on goodies or the tracklist yet. However, only hours after the announced release date, CDJapan has listed the product here and promised to include a promo poster if you get the first pressing, so definitely preorder if you want one!
Also, I finally managed to buy the elusive "Akihabalove" DVD from last summer, so expect some videos making the rounds at Youtube very soon. :)

I wish she insert the original song into this album.

I finally ordered it! I'm looking forward to getting her post-UNDER17 songs in one convenient package.
Did you know that there is an American DVD of the UNDER17 Live 2003 ~I am going to master the cute lobe songs!~? And here's the even better part (at least for those of us with only a little Japanese language skills): the entire concert is subtitled in English and Romanji (selectable)! Pretty neat. It's not quite as good as the Japanese LE version with the extras, but it's a pretty impressive first concert-type release for RJP-PRO.
I grabbed a copy at AnimeExpo--only $20. They also sell from their website at http://www.rjp-pro.com/

Yep, I grabbed the same RJP copy at Otakon 2004. Translations are a bit shoddy but they do a decent job for a first time. $20 isn't expensive anyway. If only they'd do the final one too...

I have a massive question/request.. Do you know anyone who has the karaoke version of Perfume's 'Akihabalove'? I cannot find it anywhere, and I would really like to get hold of it ^^; Any help at all is much appreciated!

Sure. I have it. Shoot me an email and I'll send it to you in the reply.

^^; Please could you upload it onto MegaUpload or something? I'm a bit of a no-email person ^^;

Just out of interest, does Momoi's version of Akihabalove have a karaoke version?
