Album cover + track listCollapse )

I love that she's doing the space/futuristic thing again. I have very high hopes for this!

Announced at Aira's one-man live today:

New album on August 21st, titled I'LL BE BACK (she must really still be into K-pop).

Last performance and official retirement temporary hiatus on September 29th.

Will update with a credible source when I can find one, but as for now, it's all over Twitter if any of you guys want to take a look. :c

Edit: Update from Natalie.mu, Aira has described it as a "temporary hiatus." I'm personally doubtful of her being able to come back, but I definitely hope she does.
I don't know if everyone here knows about this, but apparently Universal Music Japan lists both Aira Mitsuki and Saori@destiny as artists of its sublabel Universal D (yes it's my first time hearing this sublabel cuz all I know is the J one):

See this list here:

And also these:

Don't know when these links are updated though. All their discographies from their Victor catalog up to their D-topia Universe releases are listed.

The other 2 songsCollapse )

I suppose the latest to report in D-topia news is that they're launching a new idol group called Happy Super Generation (はっぴ~超じぇねレ~ション Happy~ Chou Genera~tion if you're following the original japanese and feeling pedantic.) They are signed to D-Topia Universe and their first album "Dare ga Debut Dekiru no?" (誰がデビューできるの?, Who'll be able to debut?) will be released November 7.

The Happy Super Generation project was started at the end of 2011 and had auditions at the beginning of 2012. The theme of this idol group is "experience" rather than "newness." Or at least that's what I gather from their website.

Member ProfilesCollapse )

A clip from a song of theirs has been uploaded on the Dtopia youtube channel. Titled "HappyGen no Theme", it resembles the older, earlier Harenchi Punch sound with some... dance elements. Yes.

Their staff twitter can be found here @HappygeneStaff and their website is here http://happy-super-generation.syncl.jp/

I swear to god that Yuzuki looks a lot like Aira, but maybe that's because I miss her that much. Regardless, I wish these girls all the best in their debut.

These have just come up and it seems as if that D-topia is wanting to make a quick buck with them as each DVD retails at 3000 Japanese yen (which according to the current exchange rate is 37.67 U.S. dollars)

Aira x Saori Live DVDs
Aira Mitsuki Live DVDs
Saori@destiny Live DVDs

This is probably the only time that any of Saori's live performances will ever be released so if you've got cash to burn and a proxy service who can order for you, then they're up for the taking at D-topia's online store.

The SATD Info twitter account retweeted the following:

【決定!!】6/9(土)"Saori@destinyバースデイ前夜で集う会" @LOUNGE_NEO_DAY デス!4/1以来でサオリちゃんの楽曲を大音量で聴き踊り語ります!Glad飛び出してNEOで開催!!

It seems as if that they're holding a birthday party celebration in honour of Saori's birthday (her birthday is on the 10th, this is a "day before saori's birthday celebration"). There are rumours that she might turn up but (or people hoping she will turn up) but even if her fanbase wasn't the biggest, it seems as if she left a big impact on them.

Saori's blog entry after the live.Collapse )

You'll notice that Saori's post tiptoes around the words "graduation" or "retirement," and I've heard from multiple sources that the event itself was just as unclear about her future. With no one giving a real announcement, whether Saori herself, her management or other news outlets, it's uncertain whether or not she'll ever do music again. That said, NERD@AKIHABARA has a long post about it written in English here that's really worth reading for a better perspective on the whole issue.

In any case, let us look back on the good times. Share all your favorite Saori memories in the comments below. ;_;
