My power’s been out all week, sorry this is late.

So we all know Animelo was held last weekend. Well, on the second day, the concert had a special surprise: a secret debut of a group called ALTIMA. A 3-person unit with female vocalist Maon Kurosaki, motsu of m.o.v.e on rap, and Satoshi Yaginuma on synthesizers and composition. That sounds really awesome! I’m having flashbacks of vanity destroyer right now.
Anyway, the song ALTIMA performed was called I’ll Believe and it’s the ending song to the anime 灼眼のシャナIII (Shakugan no Shana III). Here’s the first preview of the song I’ll Believe.
The anime will start airing in October.
As for fripSide, Sat posted a backstage picture of him, Nanjolno, their stage guests, and back dancers on his blog. Nanjolno wore the same outfit from the Heaven PV. Also, if you have a Nico account, you can watch fripSide’s back stage interview at Animelo.

I’m excited. I love Sat’s compositions and vanity destroyer remains one of my fav fripSide songs partly because of the awesome drive and stimulation that kikuzo’s rap brought to the party (even though I still can’t understand a word of it to this day, lol). I’ll Believe is my favorite style from Sat!
Let’s take a moment and see what activities Sat has going. There’s fripSide, Nagareda Project, the LisAni auditions, and now ALTIMA. He’s really branching himself out and spreading his music. His world’s expansion reminds me of Tetsuya Komuro, which is no surprise considering TK is one of Sat’s biggest influences. I don’t know if I can keep up!
EDIT: Forgot! ALTIMA’s official website is already up!
