A few random things came up long after returning from Japan to see Animelo Summer Live 2011.
Firstly, sometimes you don’t realise that you’ve been somewhere that you’ve seen in a movie or anime until much later.
Secondly, after hearing and meeting Minori Chihara and Chiaki Ishikawa at Animelo Summer Live 2011, it was intriguing to see that Minori Chihara’s forthcoming album, D-Formation has a track, この世界のモノでこの世界の者でない 作詞, written by Chiaki Ishikawa and Daisuke Kikuta of Elements Garden. (Thanks Keiri for the help with the translation!)
D-Formation (Dream Wonder Formation) Album details in Japanese are at http://lantis.jp/special/chihara/d-formation/
Thirdly, the DVDs and blu-rays of Animelo Summer Live 2011 are now available for pre-order from CD Japan, with a scheduled release date of 28 March 2012.
NOTE – It again appears that some of the performances will not appear on the videos. Check http://pc.animelo.jp/anisama/2011/rainbow/goods/#cd_dvd_bd closer to the release date. At this stage Isao Sasaki, Kalafina and T.M.Revolution are *NOT* listed as appearing on the videos.
