Attention please! We are looking for a new writer!
電波の世界 started in December 2007 and while our passion for the genre has only increased over the years, it's been difficult to find time for new articles and features. That's why we (denpanosekai and mandichan) are looking for an enthusiastic new writer! Here are some typical articles and tasks:※ album previews and reviews
※ event reports (comiket, M3, live, etc.)
※ artist spotlights and interviews
※ denpa watchlist renewal
※ a new theme would be nice!
Do you want to make a difference and contribute to the original and leading source for English denpa news worldwide? Please contact denpanosekai [at] gmail [dot] com today!

But wait... what's that little nugget of information hidden in the middle of the page? Apparently, it was announced that a new album is set to be released in March 2008, from Lantis Records! Pretty hot news, and a quick turnaround time from a band that just released a full-length in late August 2007...

A PV has been released along with the single, watch as it shows KOTOKO in all of her ultra-moulant latex glory. Sexy! It should also give you a feel of the movie, which is to say, a very cheap one.
For an in-depth analysis of both songs, go to 愛撫-I’ve Sound Blog-

- Denpa is mainly performed by Japanese artists. To some people, that's an instant sell.
- Denpa is deeply rooted in the anime scene, songs are often used as opening/closing tracks.
- There is a strong connection to gaming, with sound FX from classic games frequently used as beats and instruments. Denpa is also closely associated with eroge, or "erotic games".
- The genre is incredibly happy-go-lucky and morally uplifting.
- Akin to punk and hardcore music, denpa is "by the fans, for the fans". No generic mainstream regurgited music here.
- Despite a very strong DIY aura around denpa, production values are fairly high.
- Basically it should be a soundtrack to every otaku's life!
- High pitched female voices can be a little nerve grating.
- BPM ranges from mid tempo to extremely rapid (200+).
- Denpa is the ultimate fodder for weaboo-haters
- Some of the songs are just nauseatingly cute/horrid (depending on your perspective!)
