According to the I’ve Sound Explorer, which was updated awhile ago, Eiko will release her very own first best album entitled E.P.S -Eiko PRIMARY SELECTION- and it is set to be released on June 29, 2011. And it has to be noted that on her official web page, it is indicated that this will be her “final best selection album”. So does that mean Eiko will graduate from I’ve after this release?
Tracklisting for her upcoming best album is here:
- ひぐらしのなく頃に (Higurashi no Naku Koro ni)
- Super scription of data
- 太陽 (Taiyou)
- 誓い (Chikai)
- ひかりなでしこ (Hikarinadeshiko)
- Dreamer -Remix- ※SORMAアレンジ (arrange)
- 奈落の花 (Naraku no Hana)
- 砂の城 -The Castle of Sand- (Suna no Shiro)
- WHEEL OF FORTUNE （運命の輪） (Unmei no Wa)
- スカラベの祈り (Sukarabe no Inori)
- inner child
(Song title in bold indicates new songs — original compositions by Kazuya Takase and Tomoyuki Nakazawa but did not indicate which of the new songs they composed/arranged)
There is also a video on her web page which contains an interview of Eiko and the interviewer is none other than our very own Kazuya Takase. And one more thing, according to the I’ve Sound Explorer, which is the plot of the video interview, Eiko’s “graduation” was her own decision however, it was also indicated that her relationship with I’ve will not change.
On other news, WHITESOFT has come up with another eroge entitled ラブライド・イヴ (Love-Bride Eve) which is set to be released on July 29, 2011. No other credits has been revealed but I’ve Sound will produce the theme song and the BGM for this game. Wanna bet on who’s going to do the theme song? Bring it on, folks!
