The only surprising thing about a gaming-themed denpa album is that it hadn't been done before. Either through lyrics or musically, all of these songs have to do with gaming and the love we share for this hobby... nay, lifestyle. Whether you're a casual or hardcore gamer (and occasional translator), you'll find something relatable here.
Personally I was immediately drawn to Master Katahotori's fantastic Gradius hommage 「あなたのコアにLove Shot！」. Now that we know his influences, one can figure he was probably chomping at the bit to write a song like this. You can shoot my core anytime, Lady ななひら! Having been a REDALiCE for a number of years (thanks in no small part to ななひら and ARM being featured on many of his albums) it was a pleasant surprise to finally see him returning the favour. The small preview presents a sharp and stylish song (as expected) but with a happy-go-lucky twist.
「課金厨のうた -More Charin Ver.-」 from task was originally released on Colorpop 2 last summer but it has undergone some tweaks since, so we're looking forward to this upgrade. Another ear-catcher is 「びっくりさせたらおこるよ！」 from Child Prodigy (soon to become Wonder Boy) かめりあ, these two are always such a great duo! Finally 「女流ハンターななひら奮闘記」 from 塚越雄一朗（NanosizeMir） has high epic-potential, in the true sense of the term. Just a week to go!
