I might be wrong, but... Could be Megumi Nakajima singing the backing vocals?

I don't think she is, the audio quality is so bad to tell actually ^^

And that's so Rasmus Faber like. He always uses the same chords too... It's very childish anime like though, and. But it seems good, if you like dance music... For me it sounds better to what she did this year.

I agree, it's a really beautiful pv and I can't wait to see the whole thing!
Is it just me, or have her recent pvs really been trying to highlight her beauty? Not that I have complaints with that! :P

Musically speaking, this is.... chyotto...
I'm in the same state as when I discovered "Honey Come" 10 years ago, I think this kind of dance floor hard beat don't suit her singing (and don't suit anybody, by the way).
Shiawase ni Tsuite Watashi ga Shitteiru Itsutsu no Houhou will doubtly become one of my favorites. Maybe if they succeed to make a good live version ? I totally loved Hemisphere at Budokan, but I don't like the studio version that much, so that is still a possibility...

Whaaaa... Hemisphere is one of the all time favorite songs. The live version only enhances the awesomeness already in the song. :D

Personally speaking, Honey Come and the rest of Yunagi Loop, aside from (Tsubasa Chronicle) Loop and track 8 are so horrible and almost unlistenable. And this comes from one of her massive fan like me.

But this new song is catchy as hell. Both in terms of melody and arrangement, I love it. And also I can't help but think that her singing voice here sounds pretty best from what I've heard for a while.

Oh just realize that this one written by Ms. Iwsato, It's very nice to see her working with Maaya again.

Hm, the first song, written by Yuho san kinda reminded me of riding that Sky Kayak, similar to Bounen no Xamdou.

Like on two people team, she was leading, and I was linking up with her speeds. The world has a sky like waterfall that spins like large water spirals (imaginative world) well remember Interstellar waves, like those tall waves, using this Sky Kayak to fly low on the waters vertically, she was in front and I was tailing her at very high speeds..

A picture of the concept Sky Kayak

But I kinda want to mix the design of the Kayak like the mounting canon (Quartz Gun) design in Eureka Ao

Another picture of the Quartz Gun

Well, gonna wait for the full song.. it needs to be in a good quality one, so I can imagine more clearly.

^^

Some of my imaginations:
"Hey, come and link up with me, its going to be a rough ride ahead" she said. I just nodded to her request, and click on certain buttons on the head up display on my holographic screen. [Link start] was displayed as our ships are parallel parking on high speeds wind trails. There was also a holographic lines to guide our ships together, her ship was in front leading. [Sync Drive: On] it kinda meant that my ship will imitate all movement that she does now.

Then she dived, downwards at an immerse speed, well she has full control, diving through the clouds like slicing a soft cake with a knife, avoiding all obstacles carefully. It was much faster than I imagined, that these ships could go. Most probably it was due to her sky-diving capabilities are far better than mine, is what I thought. I was in love, at that instant as she just kept the ships throttle up, and just braking to make turns, or what one would say; air drifting.

"Are you okay?" she said, since I was being all quiet. I just answered through the [text-only] menu and said gave a smilie :)
