CDJapan is taking orders for the To Aru Majutsu no Index opening single (as announced below) which will be Mami Kawada’s 6th single. The release date is October 29, a time of year that so far has worked well for her. The limited edition comes with a PV, but so far, no first press goodies.
The most recent issue of Dengeki Magazine has produced an info sheet on the upcoming To Aru Majutsu no Index anime. Guess who’s back and looking for work? That’s right, it’s IKU, who will sing the ending theme. Mami Kawada will sing the already promising opening theme, but hers is the only one of the two that will be I’ve produced. Despite the low-quality scan on the MOONPHASE blog, it is still possible to see that I’ve is next to Mami’s name, yet not IKU’s. Kazuya Takase may still arrange the ending, but that info hasn’t been revealed, nor the names of the songs themselves nor when the single(s) will come out.
You may recall that KOTOKO had earlier claimed to have recorded a song for To Aru. Do we take KOTOKO’s word or Dengeki Magazine? Or is my translation of “今日は、とある曲のレコーディングでした。” that bad?
Also, Nicovideo has the MELLSCOPE commercial up, for those who want a tiny taste of the SCOPE PV.
