Was Kono Shin the In the Silence 2011 tour band master? I really, really liked that concert. Everything about it was gorgeous. EDIT looking at Kono Shin's work history, I find it amusing that he was the arranger for some of my favourite Hello! project song s back in the day. Long live golden era Hello! project :-DD what a nostalgia trip. Kiroi 5's boom boom boom!! Maki Goto's Yaruki it's easy! Who would have thought I'd be listening to him through Maaya as well.

The only unfortunate part of SAVED is when she pronounces it as 'you save-ED me' near the end. Whyyyyy? It was perfect pronounciation up until that point. Doesn't bring me out of the song but unfortunate!!

So, is that one of the covers at the end of the tv spot?

Her reverse mullet thing is...ok? I can't decide. Although I like the pv itself!
her legs look good, but her face looks thin and almost sallow. Hopefully she isn't working herself too hard.

The preview for Saved looks wonderful!!! :D

EDIT:

Yup, that's one of the covers.
Honestly, I was expecting 4 covers, but it looks like there won't be different covers for the 2cd editions.
The Saved/Be Mine cover (first one) is the one I'll be looking to order. :)

Me too.

I don't like Saved, I think the singing melody doesn't fit Maaya's voice...

To my ears, Maaya's voice fits better with Saved than Be Mine. *shrugs* :cool:
Just under 1 month until release... Victor Ent / flying dog should be posting some more updates soon...

- You saved me - lovely piece of music :)

added to my cache of lost-and-found memories, hehe the ending part sounds like Oasis style mix. British fangirls would know. it was like, meeting the 'one' kind of love song.. you'll get to understand it eventually..

weirdly enough, after a quick study on the lyrics of 'be mine', due to her tenacity she just did not leave out even the small details (love her for that). but it was an anime themed, so it has to be that upbeat.. I don't mind, I love studying lyrics.

Me too, I prefer SAVED. We should have a poll to see which track is more popular, haha.

Yes he was.
He has been live master from We are Kazeyomi until In the Silence, and I think they've changed staff for Mitsubashi, and that is why there is no more string section in the new concert. I miss those.

I kinda want to read the English translation for Koe/Voice badly.. <- yup >_<

onegaishimasu, and thank you in advanced..
@song-translators


She using a different slang for koe (imho, its really rare for her to sing like this), as I'm unable to translate this one by ear.. the Saved one however is possible/in progress maybe... if I had my hands on the romaji/kanji, it would be faster to make a word map for both songs.

'Koe' is on-par with 'Utsukushii hito' ^^

So... the booklet says that Koe is the coupling track. So It's not a triple A-side single... It's just a double A-side single with Koe as the B-side.

Found the kanji.. some of the google translate gave gibberish words, so I did a romaji translate.. my eyes sparkle reading the romaji..

The translation for voice just completed it, the words did made some sense now (in a bigger scope). Hope you enjoy it.
