Concerns the blog.
Yup. It’s all up & done. If you were here yesterday, you know what I mean.
I noticed a pattern so I removed the download menu above. Use the search to the right to find what you want. Using the Japanese name can help.
Also, One week from now, I will disallow Google from indexing my website. So, bookmark my website if you wish to continue following my updates.
Hey guys, here’s your short November update.
So, today, I received the CDs described in the last update… which is just below this post. All CDs were accounted for… except Halozy’s Cinematic Disc, for some reason. I have reached out to my forwarder in hope for an explanation as he told me he got all of my Halozy request. So, hopefully, he just forgot to put it with the rest. If that’s the case, then, there’ll be another week delay for that particular disc. If not, I guess… mistakes happen.
B’z’ new album “Dinosaur” pre-order still stands. Should be here beginning December.
As for the next Winter Comiket, there’s a list of already released releases I’d like to get, in priority:
- Bad Apple Feat. Nomico Compilation (Alstroemeria Records)
- Raver’s Nest Best 2017 Toho Hyper Rave (Digital Wing)
- NRG Nation Vol. 1 (Eurobeat Union)
- 烏賊 -Ika- (Sound Holic)
- Angel Time (Digital Wing)
- Eternal Fantasia (Digital Wing)
- Digihalo Nexus (Digital Wing + Halozy)
- Digihalo Pride (Digital Wing + Halozy)
- + new releases from A-One, Eurobeat Union, Crazy Beats and Sound Holic
If money permits, at some point:
- Euro Baka Ichidai Dub-Mix Collection 1-3 (Eurobeat Union)
- Sound Holic discography (there’s way too much, it’ll be in wave and SEB volumes)
Super Eurobeat Vol. 246 releases December 20. Yeah… Such a bad timing. In Avex’ mind, I guess they want SEB 250 in August…? Like they used to be released in? Well whatever, it’ll come with my doujin order in January. As for SEB 245, not before February. Sorry guys.
I can confirm you what CDs will be in my next order! So, these will be shared probably around beginning to mid November.
- New single “Brand New Sky”, released for Aki Reitaisai, Koromu and M3.
- The Best Of Non-Stop Toho Eurobeat 2011
- The Best Of Non-Stop Toho-Eurobeat 2012-2013
- Eurobeat Festival Vol. 4
Since they were going into a hiatus for a while, I decide to binge on Halozy CDs. There are quite a few available already here and, all of them had a rip in “Touhou Lossless Torrent”, but I’m here to make my own rips of them. And there are… 10 of them. No joke.
- ブチアゲ♂トウホウ 1 (Buchiage Touhou 1 (with 556mm))
- ブチアゲ♂トウホウ 2 (Buchiage Touhou 2 (with 556mm))
- Viva Evolution
- Toho Cyber Trance 赤 (Aka) Halozy Trance Collection
- Bayside Beat
- Aqua Trytone (yes, that one)
- Cinematic Disc
- Snow Melody
- Future Love
- Crescendo Planet
- Starry Presto
So, with these, I’ll have 15 Halozy releases! And then, it’ll be a pain to hunt down the remaining discs…
Also, for B’z, I took the CD+Blu-ray edition. Coz why not, right?
- About September CDs…?
So, unfortunately, I did not get to buy any CDs last month after all. I saved that cash to be able to buy Pokemon Ultra Moon in November but…
- October CDs!
However, I did buy at least 3 CDs this month. The TEBs I was missing (the most expensive of the bunch ;_; ), Eurobeat Festival Vol. 4 (yes, it’s coming this early) from Sugano and a few Halozy CDs (which one I get is still pending). But… I took a big decision: NO SUPER EUROBEAT VOL. 245. It’s a trash mix. So, priority went waaaaaaaay down. I’ll probably get it somewhere early next year; maybe along with SEB 246. So, don’t rely on me for this one. Also, there’s a non-doujin, non-eurobeat, non-japan CD coming this week. I don’t know if you guys will care about this one. You’ll probably laugh at it more than anything. But whatever.
- November and December CDs…?
I don’t plan on buying much if any CDs at all because I’ll be financially tight for these two months. The only thing I plan to buy is B’z’ new album “Dinosaur” coming at the end of November. I don’t know what edition I’ll get since they didn’t announce the editions just yet. Also, there’ll be C93 at the end of December. Raver’s Nest Best 2017 and Sound Holic’s Ika (which releases next week at Aki Reitaisai) are probably sure fire. I’ll have to look into my budget as this will fall into my January budget which is still tight AF (loosens in February, and yes, it’s my car “repair payments”). Also, I know for a fact that there won’t be new Halozy stuff because they are taking a break for some time. FeelsBadMan
That is all for now… or is it? Keep your eyes peeled TODAY!
Hey guys! Update post!
- August 2017 order update
My stuff only got shipped Wednesday Japan time. This includes SEB 244 and all the doujin CDs I talked in the previous update. So, unfortunately, they’ll come eventually in September instead of the planned end August.
- What’s in store for September 2017?
Unfortunately, I’m bringing bad news. My car decided to “break”; it still works but it’s very inconvenient for me and induce me a lot of stress. And I NEED my car, I just can’t say that I’ll walk instead or take a taxi. The repairs are going to be over a 1000$CAD. I’m struggling to find a way to pay for that. So, since I’ll be probably me loaning cash, I’ll have to slow down on CDs for quite some time. I don’t say that there won’t be any new rips, just less of them. If I get new discs, don’t expect them until the end of September, beginning October.If I buy anything it’ll be what I said in the previous post and ONLY that.
SEB 245 (which is a fucking mix), will be purchased in October but I dunno if there’ll be anything else with that. MAYBE SEB 204 and 221. MAYBE. Will depend if even allowed to retain my sanity while I repay back my car repair loan.
That is all. I’ll keep you guys posted.
Oi guys! It’s time for another update!
- August 2017
SEB 124-127, 197, 199, 201-203 got here like… on July 24th. It take a while to get everything going. They all should be shared in the coming days. I only have a few things to be done with the scans. Please note that the rips of SEB 197, 201 and 203 are not fresh per se. I have done these rip with EAC 1.0b3 a few years ago actually. They still hold and re-ripping them with EAC 1.3 will not change the quality whatsoever.
As for new CDs this month, I talked about it briefly in the last update. But I finally have a list.
- V.A. – Super Eurobeat Vol. 244
- [SuganoMusic] Eurobeat Festival Vol. 3 (Remember: this will be made available until Sugano uploads it to bandcamp!)
- [Eurobeat Union] ユーロバカ一代 Vol. 9 (CD + DVD)
- [Eurobeat Union] Nu-Ko – Best Of Nu-Ko (Momiji is love <3)
- [Crazy Beats] 頭文字T T-Selection Vol.05
- [Crazy Beats] Toho Euro Night Two
- [A-One] Toho Eurobeat Vol. 16 -永夜抄-
- [A-One] Montage Blue (A-One Best Collection Feat. 越田Rute隆人)
- [Sound Holic] 強敵 -Last Boss-
All the doujin will be delayed by SEB 244’s release on August 23. Then, it’ll take a few days for my forwarder to send everything. So. Don’t expect anything until September, unfortunately; unless I decide to have the doujin and SEB shipped separately. In which case, I’d have the doujins two weeks or so after August 11. I still haven’t decided.
- September 2017
There won’t be much that month. I wanna take it slow for once and focus my cash somewhere else.
So, there will be Raver’s Nest Best 2017 Toho Hyper Rave and MAYBE, if they are still available, the two last mixes I’m missing from the Toho Eurobeat series. There’s one month left before I can figure it out.
Alright. That’s it for now! Cheers.
I’m able to confirm the next batch of rips and/or scans I’m going to upload!
July (final list):
- V.A. – Super Eurobeat Vol. 197 -King Of Eurobeat-. I could already up the mix since I made a rip a long time ago, but I’ll do it with a new set of scans.
- V.A. – Super Eurobeat Vol. 199 -Collaboration Of Eurobeat-
- V.A. – Super Eurobeat Vol. 201
- V.A. – Super Eurobeat Vol. 202
- V.A. – Super Eurobeat Vol. 203
That’s it for the “unimpressive” ones. Now, for the more valuable ones.
- V.A. – Super Eurobeat Vol. 124 (First Press 2CDs)
- V.A. – Super Eurobeat Vol. 125 (First Press 2CDs)
- V.A. – Super Eurobeat Vol. 126 (First Press 2CDs)
- V.A. – Super Eurobeat Vol. 127 (First Press 2CDs)
As far as I know, SEB124-129 First Press 2CDs only three volumes were ripped together: SEB 126, 128 and 129. By that, I mean, that the both CDs in the package were ripped together and just not have 2 different rips stitched together. You just can’t assume that the first disc is bit-pefectly the same across editions. But they all have faults in my eyes. SEB 126 have Russian logs (probably perfect but can’t make sure coz all log checkers check against English) and multiple-things-on-the-platter-and-no-post-processing scans. SEB 128 is a EAC 0.99 log with no checksum and no scans. SEB 129 weren’t perfect rips (65%). It also has scans but they are incomplete and “OK” quality.
ETA: End of July, early August. However, I can’t promise hard dates since it’s a LOT of work making rip & scans. Prepping everything is a good week of work easily.
- V.A. – Super Eurobeat Vol. 244 – that’s a given
- [SuganoMusic] V.A. – Eurobeat Festival Vol. 3 (as long as the bandcamp page is not up)
- Other doujin stuff. We’ll see what’s announced for Summer Comiket. Only Sugano’s release is confirmed.
If I have to stipulate, A-One and Sound Holic will have new material. Zun will release Touhou 16 soooooooooooo… yeah… I hope that Crazy Beats, Eurobeat Union and Halozy will release new stuff too.
Regardless, we’ll talk about that in the next update post! Which will be, hopefully, be a thing from now on.
Just an heads up. Sugano finally uploaded Eurobeat Festival Vol. 1 & 2 to bandcamp:
So, this effectively means I’m removing download links for them. Hope you enjoy your preview files and please encourage Sugano! Those are very good Eurobeat compilations!
Note that, if a Vol.3 gets released, that doesn’t mean I’m not going to upload it. I will just follow the same rules: keep it up until Sugano put it up for sale on Bandcamp.
Sorry for the inconvenience.
I did not expect to have been away from my PC that much time. So, I won’t have much of anything ready at least next week. And that’s generous.
Hey there everybody.
The good news: I received my 10 CDs today and started ripping. SEB 190’s improved scans almost done.
The bad news: I… won’t be able to scan and upload anything until March 7. March 7 is everything is ripped and ready to go. Chances are that won’t happen (ie. 99% sure that won’t happen). And I also like to make Discogs entries for everything so that will make things even longer. I’m really, really sorry guys.
Reason: Important family member health issue that needs surveillance.
Cheers y,all and sorry for all of the delays.
