KOTOKO tweeted yesterday after finishing her summer tour that she is currently making a new album with Tomoyuki Nakazawa. They just finished a new song called Fukigen na Mermaid | Ill-tempered Mermaid.

Yeah, the initial announcement of "tears cyclone -Kai-" had mentioned "two albums" (for the 15th anniversary of her major debut) with "-Kai-" being the first one, so the newly announced "-Sei-" is the second one.

It seems the recording is now finished (after six months).

Though we could still be some time away from a release date.

It will be interesting to compare the two albums.

Wow, this forum seems to be dead at this point. That's sad.
Here are very short Previews of the new Album.


First I have to say that I LOVE the Covers of this Album. I now it's not hard to beat KOTOKOS previous Album Covers, because most of them sucked, but I think these are very good.

In terms of the Tracks, I know the Previews are too short to judge anything, but from what I hear, I have to say that most of them sound quite mediocre. Nothing new or fresh. The most promising are Track 5,6 and 7

I agree about some of the tracks sounding mediocre, but I hope to like them more with the longer versions. I don't think this new album will be better than the previous one, but it's been always this way with I've albums, I like half the album and the other half I forget (Epsilon and parablepsia are good exceptions).

I also love the album covers, the limited edition one looks especially good. Not very excited by the previews, but I still hope KOTOKO and Nakazawa can bring something interesting.

I’m liking 1, 4, 5, 10, 11, 12. It’s too hard to tell with such short previews, though. This will probably be similar to her last album for me, not much new. But it is an anniversary album so I don’t mind that there isn’t a lot of unique things since that’s not the theme of the albums. I think I’ll like this one.

The new album sounds so nice. I’m pretty sure I like every song, even though I was a little worried after hearing the previews. I think this is the first KOTOKO album where I like all the songs.

Here's the Album:

It's better than expected but still quite underwhelming. But it's extremely summery and that's a plus!

Tracks 1, 5, 7, 9, 10, 11 and 12 are very good, but nothing too special about the others. I really disliked the cute songs like "Thank you birthday". 11 and 12 reminded me of Nakazawa older songs, they are a bit nostalgic.

I got my copy of the album (the Amazon Japan Limited Edition one) in the mail today.

The concert was really good.  Singing

I was excited to notice that this album was available on iTunes! I haven't bought a physical copy 'cuz importing is expensive and I can't right now, but I immediately took the chance to get it for less than 10€. I haven't finished listening to it yet, but so far, it's a pretty good album: not really a weak song in here, though I didn't find any songs great stand-outs either. My favourites: Minazuki no Koi ~mimetic memory~, Fukigen na Ningyo, HACHI, and Tobiuo. (I wasn't super into HACHI until the spoken-word bridge, but that charmed the hell out of me. Singing )

Also, I have to say a few words about KOTOKO's cover of Asu e no Namida: it's ok, but I feel like this song benefits from a soft delivery and sparser arrangement, like in the original. Unfortunately, KOTOKO didn't go very delicate and Nakazawa amped up the arrangement to match her, and in the end, the song is weaker for it. It's too bad they didn't go for a different style.
