Who else is excited?! Oricon and fripSide’s official site announced that fripSide has officially scored their first #1 weekly on Oricon’s chart! sister’s noise has stayed in the top 2 every day since release.

The DVD version of fripSide 10th Anniversary Live in Tokyo sold 565 copies and charted at #22 for its first week. However, more fans went for the Blu-ray version as it sold 1,808, more than three times the DVD! The BD ranked #2 on Oricon’s weekly Blu-ray chart. Not bad for their first concert release.
fripSide also topped SoundScan charts this week with sister’s noise. The CD+DVD version between May 6 and May 12 sold 23,865 copies and the CD-only version sold 3,406 copies.
I feel so happy for fripSide! Congratulations!

fripSide’s upcoming compilation album finally has some official information!! A notice was posted by someone at RSK today and this line piqued my interest:
Participation by guest vocalists
Reservations begin 11.11.11 and the album goes on sale Jan 1, 2012. My guess is that it will be another “ships in Japan only” deal so prepare to pay extra for a middleman service.
And remember, the live stream about the album is also on 11.11 at 9pm JST. The page for the stream is >> here <<
Here’s the logo that’s been going around. I cropped it from the RSK poster:

m.o.v.e is releasing the third volume in their anim.o.v.e series where the group covers songs of anime. anim.o.v.e 03, set for release on Sept 7, will include their own eurobeat dance cover of only my railgun!
You can listen to the preview on the album’s page. Sounds like there’s going to be at least some insert raps! Looking forward to that~. I like their arrangement, but I’m not sure how I feel about Yuri’s vocals on this one

Animelo site revealed the artist goods for this year and fripSide has 3 different shirts (1 design from last year) and 2 towels. Like most fripGoods, these carry a techno/binary/computer chip theme. This year’s little animal is a mini lizard (last year at the infinite synthesis concert, some of the goods had a butterfly).
Can see them all here.
The lizard is awfully adorable~ what do you think? Haven’t looked to see if there’s a place to purchase them anywhere but the concert venue.
PS: new single release in one week!
PS II: this was my 200th post on WP! very anti-climatic if you ask me
is titled Last Fortune. A preview movie of Twinkle Crusaders -Passion Star Stream- has been playing all weekend at Comiket 80 at Lillian’s booth with this track. No previews yet!
