Visual Kei Artists Rock Your Favorite Anime Songs (Again)

V-ANIME does it again!

vanimeartists2014

All of your favorite band members are participating in the third installment in the V-ANIME series, “V-ANIME collection -homme-“. The March 26th collaboration album, just 3000yen, features 11 cover songs with over 10 of the biggest names in V-kei. Along with special guests like JAM Project’s Masaaki Endoh, you’ll be able to hear the likes of Kaya, MEJIBRAY’s MiA, and DIAURA’s yo-ka give you their interpretation of hit anime songs.

You can already pre-order the album on CDJapan, but hurry – there are less than 20 copies left to be available for the release date!

The participating artists have also made some comments on the exciting omnibus, translated by our own Adventure Tim. Check them out!

Ryohei (Megamasso)
This’ll be my first time working on anime song covers as a producer/arranger, and I’m really excited about it.
I’ll be collaborating with three vocalists who are already prominent themselves, so I’ll try not to be outdone, and to come up with arrangements that show off how good the original song was.
If you believe you’ve figured it out just from the song names, please go ahead and ask!

Kazami (DaizyStripper)
We’re going to deliver a whole bunch of famous anime songs to you with a wide range of vocalists.
I’ve never collaborated with an artist from outside my band before, but the chemistry is already starting to form.
From the old songs to the new, every single vocalist’s style is gonna ring out, so this’ll be a collaborative sound you won’t find anywhere else–don’t miss it!

MiA(MEJIBRAY)
I like metal and anime songs, I listen to them all the time, so I’m glad I could take part in this project.
I get to work with Dancho-san [of NoGod] and Yuugiri-san [also of DaizyStripper], too, and and the matchup of their pretty, high voices with anime songs… it’s a must-hear!

Dancho(NoGod)
Yes, yes! Thanks very much! This is Dancho-sannn
I get to collaborate with MiA-kun, first on the list of young talents, and sing covers of famous anime songs!
I almost never sing things other people have arranged, so I’m quite excited.
With all the young folks helping, Uncle Dancho’s gonna leave it up to them and work hard!

yo-ka(DIAURA)
This is the second time I’ve been asked to work on anime-related productions, but with Ryohei-san from Megamasso on board, I’m sure it’s going to be wild.
Who knows what we’ll get when we mix my vocals with Ryohei-san’s world… I hope you’ll look forward to it.
