Last limited mini was eventually released on regular shop. It was limited as hell but still, was aviable at some point.

I still curse myself to this day for noticing it so late on CDJapan, when it was already sold-out... :-( (I think maybe it was only limited to 150 copies when it came to general sale? at least that's what I've seen on multiple online shops)

 

This time I'll keep checking every day after their first gig, lol.

Yeah, all their CDs are stupidly limited and you really have to chase them down. But it seems they are investing more into this?  Maybe they have a bigger press.

Just noticed those individual posters still got K.I.S on them.

Makes me wonder if all these EPs  they released as of late will actually be put into one and released as an album, maybe with 1-2 new tracks, some time?  🤔

 

That is actually such a VK thing to do, right??

Like when LYCAON releases 3 live limited singles, then putting all 3 into their album (Royal Order), in the end.

 

IDK, a hunty can wish

I know it was supposedly available in CDJapan/HMV at one point but I still question whether was it a accidental listing and it was never actually available to the public. The public release of the CD was not mentioned on their official twitter and why would I purposely print like an additional 500 copies just for public sales? Unless they solely underestimated the demand, else, if they want to keep the CD exclusive, its exclusive enough as it is as a live-limited CD and should keep it at that.

 

Anyhoo, I still see it listed for around 5000 yen at mercari/yahoo auctions just last week but I can say its not really worth the trouble 😜 The real exclusive release is the 2 songs that comes in the download code found in the pamphlet that you can only buy in their recently concluded tour in 2019 that's going for 8000yen in mercari now:

There are some that goes for 4000yen but the download code is not mentioned in the description so I assumed that the buyer has already downloaded the songs via the code and its only valid for a 1-time download.

The EP retail print was ridiculously low. The live distributed limited singles are their rarest stuff, but I really think they are a lost cause. We were really lucky video gayton ended up online since it was the same thing (only physical).

Video Gayton is selling for cheap (less than 1000 yen) in 2nd hand VK hands like Closet Child so I suppose there's a large print of it? You can get it as long as you bought a copy of 艶℃ at HMV or Tower Records:

Be glad you don't follow goatbed; they will 90% release a live limited CD ALBUM at any of their concerts like this:

 

 

and as of now, the number of live limited/mail order only releases are much much more than their public releases. And their website don't even bother documenting all these releases.

 

I'm trying to collecting all of Ao Sakurai's releases (including Lab the Basement's) but its hard when he has a couple of CDs (on CD-Rs!) given out for free on his yearly birthday concerts where he remake some of his old songs, including this beauty:

But no way am I paying 22000 yen for that!

Why does everything Shuuji touches come with 12013102 live-limited releases? Cali=gari has a whole mess of singles that were live only as well and weren't really advertised.

cali gari's official website do feature their live-limited/buy A, B & C to get D/lucky-draw only (I'll elaborate on this later) CDs like:

 

http://www.missitsu.com/disco/ZAVY.html

[2014.02.01] 非金属の夜 (given out free at their live; recording of their live gig of the same title)
[2014.03.16] 俺≠俺 (instrumental track; buy 10000yen worth of goods at a gig and you'll get it for free)

https://twitter.com/sakurai_shouten/status/1209033210614542337/photo/1

 

I'm not including the live limited DVD releases (there's ALOT) and CDs that are sent to your address, as long as you are a FC member and re-recorded version of cali gari songs by Ao that he releases only at his birthday lives and collaboration with book releases (yes, its a thing. He did 2 so far, from what I know).

 

You can find photos of some of the releases mentioned here:

Jesus christ! I knew they had a lot of limited stuff but I didnt know there was still THAT much stuff out there that's never surfaced lol

On the one hand it makes me kinda sad knowing it probably never will, but on the other hand.. most of their live dist songs haven't been THAT amazing. The only one I really wish would suddenly magically pop up some day is 0  (and those Ao covers that i didnt even know about)

True, their limited release songs ain't all that great (with the exception of '淫美まるでカオスな' where its a staple at EVERY concert. I prefer 'アレガ☆パラダイス' and 'いつか花は咲くだろう') and they'll play it once or twice straight after its release and then never play it again. 'Last Dance' was really good though; it's in △15th Caliversary 2018 LAST GIGS「オヤスミナサイーーー。」@ディファ有明 DVD that was released to the public.

 

Here's a photo of the album of Ao's re-recorded versions of cali gari/lab the basement/solo songs that comes with a BL manga:

 

https://ibb.co/TLzF8pH

 

Yeah, i still have no idea how to post photos into the posts. Moderators, help me edit to embed the photo if possible!

 

The other BL manga which Ao released a song for (download code found in the book) was mentioned in his twitter last year and I'm not going to search for it so you gotta take my word for it!

 

Edit:

Nevermind, I found the 2nd BL manga:

 

https://www.rainbow-shoppers.com/jp/www/list.cgi?id=G000713000012

 

I tried asking my agent to help me buy it for me but I suspect he's a homo-probe and made no mention of it, despite buying my concert tickets & yahoo auction stuff. Oh well.

 暗い日曜日 also sounds pretty good but i have no idea where/when that one was released... As far as I can gather it came out last year? Only found it as a live recording on YT.   I really don't get why Inbi is so well-liked either 😕 The song always felt rather 'eh' to me. 

 

Is there any chance anyone could translate the tracklist for that Ao album into romaji? Curious to see which tracks he chose to re-rec but I cant read the original characters  :^)
