Great news, and the live mini-album seems quite nice too, Platina is one of my all-time favorite, its good to be able to listen to a new live version.

By the way, it seems they've choosen wisely the tracks for the mini-live to please everybody
* one anime hit from the Kanno time
* one of her last single
* one of the rare B track from the Kanno time
* one from her last album
If they have added something from Kazeyomi, it could have been a mini best-of, don't you think ? ;)

I'm looking forward to the preview of the song on Vitamin M in a couple of days!

The cover look nice, and I agree the katakana are really hard to decipher! ;)

I hope I'll like these songs, the last one I liked was More than Words, it was so long ago...

Just listened to the PV flying dog posted on youtube... Not impressed, but it is a short clip and hard to hear with the narration.

Flying dog posted some sample clips on their site. I'm liking the c/w track. :)

Here's also the TV version of Replica, which was included with ep 14 of the M3 Sono Kuroki Hagane anime.

This is a chaotic song!

The first verse sounded good except the reverb on Maaya's voice (the mixing is really not good...).

But then when the refrain comes it sounds like another song, and not a good one. The refrain melody, the distant chorus, the strings arrangement, actually everything don't fit together and the result is musically poor...

That's really too bad! Have now to wait for the next song announcement hoping this time it will be good.

Agreed!! I've always thought she looks do much better with long hair, and it really shows in this PV. :heart:

On a related note, why isn't the full version PV on the limited edition single? Arrhhg. Guess this short version will have to do for now (watched it 5 times already :D )
