I didn’t ask for much for Christmas, and this is plenty already:
- Tsuda Kenjirou’s Haterumade Radio on 12/26 with Inoue Go (Sky High) and Kusunoki Taitem (Rock Bison) as guests at Nathan’s Fiery Room. Available on Hibiki Radio until 1/9 when the next one is airing.
- Tiger & Bunny New Years Special on Ustream. The channel is most likely still region restricted, but it’s possible to view if you use a VPN service.
- Hoshizora Sunrise New Years Special on FM NACK5 on 1/1 23:00 JST. They are planning to sample the upcoming character song album BEST OF HERO during January. You can listen to the radio on Keyhole TV. (NOTE: Songs will be sampled starting 1/8, Sky High’s and Blue Rose’s new song are the first ones.)
Hirata Hiroaki also posted on his blog about the character songs – he and Morita Masakazu (or Banikazu-kun as he called him) are singing a duet and solo songs again.
Update: Morita Masakazu tweeted that he was recording Bunny-chan’s song for the album. (“Bunny-chan” was his exact wording, not mine.)
Update 2: Inoue and Ozaki were having a conversation on Twitter earlier, seems that the first song to get sampled from BEST OF HERO will be Sky High’s. It’s supposed to be very fitting for the character, and also will get stuck on loop in your head, so you’ve been warned.
Thank you for this informations!
please, where can I hear the previous songs by Hirata Hiroaki and Morita Masakazu?
You can find them on Youtube if you search with the song titles, Seigi no koe ga kikoeru kai, Hamidashimono sanka and Power of Justice. They’ve both sung more character songs for other anime, too, so you can probably find some if you search using their names.
Oh, thank you very much!!
Another duet? My body is ready.
Thanks for the info! Another duet… best Christmas news ever!
Thanks for the info!
Just out of curiosity, is it possible to listen to Hoshizora Sunrise through other means like Radiko? And I was just looking at Hoshizora’s website and saw a “We’re sorry. Our current service is not available in your country.” right next to the Twitter widget. I haven’t found any working proxies, but is that where the radio is streamed as well?
Radiko lists NACK5 under Tokyo area stations, so if you can use Radiko it should be available there. I’m not sure about the on demand streaming version, since Bandai Channel is blocked where I am, too. VPN might help with that, but I haven’t tried it myself.
If everything else fails, there’s Keyhole TV.
