So, is Lia rejoining I’ve? Eroge-song princess Rita dumping her GWAVE connections for a more well-established brand? The return of Reina as a full-time member? Nope! In fact, this new girl is a complete unknown – whether she’s one of Shimamiya’s pupils like most of Love Planet Five or a random find by Takase like IKU remains to be seen, but it would seem to be confirmed that Airi Kirishima (桐島愛里) is now an official member of I’ve.
Her debut will be the song “two HeaRt” for bootUP!‘s eroge Futa-Ane, and as has been mentioned before the song will be composed and arranged by oft-maligned producer Maiko Iuchi with lyrics penned by KOTOKO. Additionally, the game itself will feature background music from I’ve, with the only outside help on the soundtrack coming from sometime collaborator Yui Isshiki (Hyouketsu no Yoru, My Friend). No release date has been announced as of yet, but expect one in due time.
