流岚maaya from YKFan upsampled it, and it sounds clearer by a bit. You can already hear some of the lyrics:

Agree 100%... I just listened to the upsampled mp3 and it sounds lovely (even with the event announcer popping in). Okay Victor Ent, where's the catalog # and release date for the cd single?!? XD

A bit late on this, but from what I've heard from the video I agree with everyone else here :P Looking forward to the high quality one :)

Thanks for the heads up, dillpops! /o/

Wish they'd make such things accessible worldwide though, not every Maaya fan resides in Japan and at least people won't have to resort to piracy or sth similar, idk ;o;

ps, 1400 posts dillpops! /amused

I know, tell me about it. That's an obsession of nearly a decade right there!

Maaya's site has announced the ringtone too:

www.jvcmusic.co.jp/maaya

When they say 'full' does that tend to mean the whole song? I have no idea about ringtones ^^;;

Wikipedia says yes.

I don't know if anyone has seen this, but i believe this is the (almost) full version at high quality or at least medium :)

Wow, this is an absolutely beautiful song. The music has Kanno written all over it. I really hope this gets released to CD someday.

Wow, it's beautiful :cry:

EDIT: also, Maaya's voice is sounding wonderful, it's back to full Nikopachi glory, no curling notes or anything. It's beautiful!

I hope this gets put on CD soon.
