Yay, Eiko is back! I wonder if she's doing the Higurashi Kira themes~~~

^ I guess not...

The OP is called "Happy! Lucky! Dochy!", and will be performed by Rika (Tamura Yukari), Satoko (Kanai Mika), and Hanyuu (Horie Yui). The ED is called "Unprecedented Miracle Change" (前代未聞☆ミラクルチェンジ), and each arc will have its own unique version of it.
is it a good thing that they are now working on things like touring and the FC events more than new music? E5616568bd4e8991cba4bb392105821777defba3_r

Awwww. Sadface.

They could have different OPs for the different arcs since they're being released over a year or something, right?

I'm inclined to wonder if the apparent new music hiatus is tied to the 'announcement' that Lantis have still to re-schedule? But to take your question literally, yes, touring is good because during hard times it's the best way of earning money and at a moment when there are no new releases scheduled, keeping the fan-base on-board takes on extra importance.

I've been reading all the hidden stuff in the first post. Thank you Tij. It's quite the best synopsis of I've Sound that I have seen. Of course, I have a few comments, not all of them to be taken seriously.

I did pause for a moment when I read the description of Yasutaka Ipposhi. Could it be that it's a bit of an undersell? If you read what Harry Yoishida has written on the I've USA website, he seems to effectively describe Yasu Ipposhi as co-founder of I've/Fuctory. The impression I have formed is that Kazuya runs the artistic side (I've) and Yasu runs the business side (Fuctory). But then again that's just my impression.

So Wata's departure was not all champagne and warm speaches? Well, I'm no wiki-nazi so I'm not going to tell you that a citation is needed. But rather, it reminds me of very similar things I have read on the net regarding Fishtone's departure from the I've camp (no pun intended). The TTB studio website isn't that much fun and I don't visit it that often, but it has struck me as odd that Fishtone seems to have deleted pretty much all reference to his involvement with I've, even in respect to his own personal history. [As an aside, I notice that despite the digital single we had last year, the new album from Hitomi Momoi (MOMO) isn't via TTB, but via some other indie outfit.]

"Reina ... her current whereabout is unknown". Wow, you make it sound so suspicious. Where did Kazuya bury the body? We need an answer! There are quite a few utahime we have lost track of. Whoever was MAKO and what ever happend to that wonderful voice?

Looking at the blurb about the new Creators FC on the I've website, the thing that strikes me most forceably is the list of names. Kazuya, Tomoyuki, C.G and Takeshi. No Maiko. How should we interpret this? A tacit admission from I've that they realise no-one really likes Maiko's stuff that much? Or a telegraphed signal that unbeknown to us, she has followed wata and fishtone out of the door? Or maybe neither of those. When I look at the credits on I've albums, the names Kazuya, Tomoyuki, C.G and Takeshi are normally followed with (I've/Fuctory) in parenthesis. Maiko on the other hand tends to be credited by name alone. It seems to imply Maiko has a different relationship with I've. Not a member but an associate. Someone who works with I've but who isn't on the Fuctory payroll. Whatever, I find the omission of her name slightly suprising.

Thank you TauCeti ;__;

You're right about Ipposhi. In the video on the USA website Takase said that he and Ipposhi had been a group long before C.G mix and Nakazawa came into the picture. It looks like Ipposhi switched to the business side around the time I've was formed.

Wata and Fishtone...
ugh wiki-nazis. I would have cited the sources but they'd all be like japnese wiki or 2ch or twitter lol.
There's no mentioning of their past work with I've on both sides, except a few blurbs here and there from some I've Twitters (Eiko, Mami, I've Bus, ...) where they answered questions about wata and Fishtone in a warm manner. Fishtone had a very long interview with the Fuctory FC a few months ago and he didn't mention anything about I've either. I just hope they will eventually resolve the problems.

I like her songs ;__; I always imagined she's a plumpish western singer~

I don't think Maiko has ever been the least favorite. She's been credited without the (I've) or (I've/Fuctory) from the start (that's when wata and fishtone were still around and she was Miu Uetsu). I think it's her decision. Maybe she's more of an independent artist / contractor. I was very surprised at first but then it's always been the case. And she's my favorite <3

ok i'm still shocked about this Eiko's "final best album"...

New cover album "Tribal Link" mentioned in Eiko&Takase's video message. Eiko will perform 2 songs (originally performed by ?-san and ?-chan lol). Release date: July 6.

Rumor has it that it's that I've x Lantis project. Apparently it's going to have popular seiyuu (who are signed to Lantis) sing I've songs, and the I've Utahime sing popular seiyuu-related songs (if there actually are any lolololololol).

And for those who still care about wata, he restarted his touch trax project and is now producing VOCALOID songs with two other people as "WOM".

Oh Eikos last Album...and then no new I've Songs from her in the future?...
But to be honest I always felt that she wants to do the calm Ballad Songs and that her Techno/Rock Songs aren't her Type of Music.

But I'm happy to see that all the Songs I love from her are on the Album, except for Taiyou, which is the worst Song from O for me
So happy to see VANILLA and Scarab no Inori here again, I always wanted to get her ULYSSES Album because of those Songs ( and ULYSSES of cause which is her best Song ever ) but it's not available anywhere.

Hopefully the two new Songs aren't both Ballads
