    I'm assuming Taboo, Madame Rosa, and Yumeji are the original versions, but the newer singles seem to be remixes.

    got advanced copy yesterday around midnight from kaya and the album is super good! Though the genre mix makes it feel like a compilation at first after a few listens the whole feel of it completely came together, it was really nice hearing him in a band format again in some songs too, that was the highlight of the album.

    Like, come on, man. Why is it so difficult for Japanese to sell albums to people outside Japan?

    We are working on amazon sales for overseas for this album it seems, I will ask him if we can set up just overseas orders for the regular label site too when we are shipping out overseas orders for the crowdfunding so maybe can get an answer on that by the end of this week and post on the kaya_itn twitter account about that.

    What, are you a staffer for Kaya now? Maybe I should break out those "industry contact" crosses again.

    yes! do translations,overseas related stuff etc. and am producing a song that is for after this album~

    Tomorrow we ship out all overseas crowdfunding packages and then I talked with him about making a bandcamp since cdjapan takes 40% of all sales @_@!
    so hopefully can set that up so people can get CDs, digital stuff, and goods too easier. so can probably update about that tomorrow night.

    CDJapan takes 40%? That's wild. Honestly, in this day and age of digital sales that sounds like a business suicide.

    And oh my gawd, I can get my Kaya album now! Thanks!

    Right? I talked with them once about carrying our stuff and they were so rude as well, I straight up told them in this age of everyone being able to create their own shops and distribution deals that the only thing they can offer is not being rude and that they need to change their attitude @_@ but honestly all VK related cd shops are crap here too, no communication, stalling on paying you your money etc.

    I am glad if you could get your stuff ^v^! am shipping out first batch of orders next week.

    all them new goods are so good right @v@? want them all...
