Nanjo has sung something new for another eroge. prismatic fate is an image song for the game プリズム☆ま～じカル～Prism Generations!～ (Premium☆Magical) included on まじかる☆ボーカルコレクション (Magical☆Vocal Collection). The ballad is credited like Yoshino Nanjo (fripSide), so no idea if it’s an official fripSong or they simply hired Nanjo for her voice. How do you get this song? I think you have to buy the ultimate or professional packages of the game and it comes as a gift. If 1st gen fripSide taught me anything, it’s that the song always finds its way onto an album sooner or later. I hope 2nd gen is no different?
I missed the concert, sadly. Apparently it was streamed on Nico~ buuut it’s my fault for not even bothering to look for a broadcast~. Once again, fripSide performed both Railgun openings near the concert beginning. According to this post by k1y0 (so thankful to have found this ♥), Nanjolno wore an adorable outfit reminiscent of the one in LEVEL5-judgelight- (click, click, click, ‘cuz there are pics!) According to other reports, apparently Magus Shinji made an appearance along with 2 other magicians (Magicians Toshihiro and Shirou). All performers sung this year’s Animelo theme song evolution ~for beloved one~ at the end.
fripSide would be the only reason for me to buy the DVD, so they better be included this year! I will be even more disappointed if they don’t than when I found out Amurochan didn’t make the a-nation 2008 DVD ;_;
Edit: Looks like some “pupils” joined the magicians on-stage during only my railgun. Awesoooome!
Finally, I’ve found time to get some of this done! Back in April, there was a huge interview with fripSide in the first volume of Sony’s newest magazine リスアニ! Listen to Animated Music!! This is just the first page. There are still two more pages of this section, then six with just the producer (and he discusses older music too, so I’m looking forward to it).
Unrelated side note, only 3 days until the big live at Animelo!
New lyrics time~ Here are the short version lyrics of “fortissimo-the ultimate crisis-” from the upcoming single, future gazer. Though unofficial, the romaji sounds correct to me. I think the translation makes sense, but probably still rough and too literal, etc etc (actually, I’m honestly unsure of the whole thing this time >_>). Corrections always welcome~

What an energetic performance!! Worth staying up until 5am for the third day in a row, that’s for sure. Yoshino Nanjo was SO cute and she sounded amazing, and Sat looked very cool playing the keyboards! She can definitely sing live. I don’t think fans could have seen better TV debut performance. The huuuuuge audience was very energetic too. For those who haven’t seen it yet, they were introduced right away and then a clip was shown of them recording only my radiogun as they talked about doing this live. On air, they performed first but in the actual concert, they were second. I liked the TV live arrangement – I’m just slightly disappointed that second last dramatic chorus didn’t make it. “LEVEL5-judgelight” did not make the broadcast and will not be on next week.
