5th Feb 2014 - new triple A-side single

Post by dillpops » 2013-11-23 07:07

Maaya will be releasing her first triple A-side next February featuring the previously announced tracks SAVED. and Be mine! collaborations with Suzuki Shoko and the band apart, respectively. It will also be featuring the Japanese-language version of the Monster Hunter theme song, to be title "Koe" (Voice)

Exciting news! There will be two versions of this single, and the tracklists will be shuffled to reflect the title track. So the anime using SAVED. as the OP will be the "inari" version of the single with that song as track number 1, and the other version will have Be mine! as the first track ^^

First press editions of the single will have a special live CD included featuring songs recorded at Maaya's latest tour, the Roots of SSW tour. And I know you'll all have been waiting for some of these tracks live for a long time!! Hurray!!

I wonder if we should merge the other 3 related threads into this new? Well guess it doesn't matter since this forum gets little traffic.

I'm not too keen on the 2 versions of this single (4 if you count the limited editions). It's just a marketing gimmick that adds no real bonus to release. If anything, it just annoys me and I bet it won't increase sales of the single. I can't imagine even the most hardcore Maaya fans buying multiple versions just to get the different cover art. The retail stores must love these multiple versions too. :P

In any case, I'm still excited for this single because it has 3 new songs and Maaya usually only releases one single a year.

CD Japan says that a DVD is bundled with the LE edition.... http://www.cdjapan.co.jp/s/detailview.html?KEY=VTZL-71

Limited edition comes with mini live DVD (6 songs) held at Shibuya Bunkamura. Includes additional jacket illustrated by Morohe Yoshida.*The DVD disc is encoded for region 2 (Japan, Europe, and Middle East), and no subtitles are included.

Really? What's so hardcore about some 1800 yen? I know a guy who visited every Maaya live since Tanabota 1, that's what I'd call "hardcore".

DVD? I don't remember any cameras... (though I was not at the 25th concert). The Japanese description only says "mini live album", so I think it's just a translation error.

Maybe it's not that much money, but I still stand by my opinion. Heck I've certainly spent lots of money on basically buying the same songs over and over. But even I draw the line somewhere. Guess I'm not "hardcore" enough. :P

I'll just get one of the limited versions since the only difference is the order of the songs. Would prefer to see the coverarts before making the order though. I bet someone will buy all four of them haha.

Don't worry, I think that buying four copies of the same single at 1,800 a pop is a bit hardcore too. I could pay my electricity, water and gas with that! ^^;; but I know that people can and will buy all the available copies. The instinct of a collector - but it will probably be a minority. If there's an album in the air in the near future, some people might hold out till then.

But to each his own! We all spend money on stuff that others would think was a waste. I don't play piano but own books of piano sheet music = a prime example! And I have met a woman in real life who buys 30 copies of a Kpop idol group's singles to get tickets to the handshake meetings. Haha, so the point is illustrated quite aptly between us.

Anyway!! Back on to the topic of the single, I think CDJapan has mistranslated too. Definitely says "album" in the CD info which would indicated a CD not DVD. And I think shuffling the order of the single is alright, I guess, but I'll be judging on the artwork ^^;;;;

We're commenting on a Maaya Sakamoto forum so I would say...yes.

I placed an order for the SAVED limited version. Couldn't wait for the coverarts 'cause what if the limited editions are sold out before I can get mine?? So I'm just hoping I get the better cover :D

The difference in price between the regular and limited edition is just silly. 500 yen? It's like nothing. Why wouldn't you buy the limited edition? I wouldn't have a problem with a 2000 yen price tag either. 3 new songs and 6 live songs for 1800 is crazy value.

But I guess with this mini live album and the medley released with the last single means no bluray release of the concert. Bummer.

Haha it is more buying four copies of the same single that we think is expensive ^^; of course the difference between normal and limited is perfectly reasonable.

Congratulations for ordering early - you definitely will have no problem getting the limited edition!

Apparently a short version of "Be Mine" is floating around the web. Maybe it's from a new trailer or aired on the radio.
