  1. Theology of Haruka Amami

    After listening to the same iDOLM@STER tracks for years, I began to parse some of the text; usually it comes as a sudden understanding while driving along. The full message often remains mysterious. For example, it appears that Agent deals with prostitution (canonically performed by Makoto, Ami and Mami …

  2. More IM@S CDs

    According to Quadrain, "Slowly but surely Columbia has started to roll out the Master Artist albums." He has Anglospheric-looking cover scans, but no links to anywhere. Amazon has nothing. Googling for "COCX-36511" brings up the same CD, but with Japanese cover. Pretty fresh too, release November 3, 2010 in Japan …

  6. Sososo's "Reboot" is available

    A couple of weeks I was marshalling Youtube links to troll Miku-haters at #animeblogger, when, entirely by accident, I noticed that Sososo posted a promo for an upcoming album "Reboot". It popped up on Amazon today and I immeditealy grabbed a few tracks. It's quite nice, if you're into this …

  7. May'n and Megumi Nakajima at Anime Expo

    Anime-expo announced that "Megumi Nakajima and May’n will perform together on Friday afternoon, July 2, in Nokia Theater as well as participate in guest panels and autograph sessions." I suppose that it's a good antidote to the mooted staffers' boycott. If they stage a strike now, I'm not going …
