Was worried aoi tsuki would end up on it. They should've left it off and had a 10 track album, one track for each personality from the cover (because the yaburekabure and soldier! soldier! outfit personalities are already represented)

I actually kind of hate how every song is showing a different "side" or sound -- it makes the album lack cohesiveness and just sounds like they're throwing everything at the wall and seeing what sticks. "Flare" was six years ago and this is almost a complete retread of it: a bunch of watered-down demo-sounding tracks that are far below a singer of Shimatani's ability.

I honestly don't know if I'll be picking this up.

Despite the diversity, the whole thing still felt cohesive to me overall.. Sure the flow won't be perfect but it's on par with Hitomi's musical identity

Based on the previews, I think my favorites from this album will be "Oss Mess Kiss Killaly!!", "Cali≒Cata≒Luca ~カリカタルカ 仮初めの呪文~", and "ソルジャー!ソルジャー!".

I was wondering the same, and found this on google:

"Oss Mess Kiss Killaly" means "Male, Female, Kiss, Twinkle." This is nothing but a string of words.

Just got my album! The photo booklet is really nice. There's about three~four pages for each of the different Hitomi's, and profiles for each different Hitomi at the end of it.

And the music sounds a lot better in high quality! It's not the super powerful, banging album I was hoping for, but it's still pretty great overall. (Now we just have to figure out what happened to "VENUS" and "COMMUNICATION".

So I am pretty happy with the album~ There's a fair shared of more upbeat songs. The Seiya! Seiya! is awesome The ballads are nice as well. I think there's only 2-3 tracks I don't like much. Over-all I think the whole release is more cohesive than Flare.

I quite like the album! There's some enka (I think?) and the songs are excellent. "Cali≒Cata≒Luca" is probably my favorite song. And I agree, it's better than Flare! The booklet pictures are also funny haha. I found this one quite disturbing though lol.

Album at #52 with only 1,717 copies sold. Ouch. I was hoping she'd at least break 2,000. I hope this doesn't cause her to stop releasing music again...

New "mini album" out February 3, "kokoro no mama ni & sessions"

Features new song "kokoro no mama ni" (the way of the heart) and a bunch of old songs re-recorded. So more of a single. The new song is the theme song to a new drama too.
