It’s been a while! But we finally have some news to discuss again (and I expect we’ll have all the more to discuss as we near the end of the year, but more on that later).
Mr.Children have announced that they’ll be providing the theme song for this season’s Fuji TV Getsu 9 drama, “Nobunaga Concerto”. This will actually be the first time in 13 years that the band have supplied the theme for a Getsu 9 drama, since ‘youthful days’ was the theme for “Antique” in 2001. “Nobunaga no Concerto” will start airing on October 13th.
The song has been called a “mid-tempo rock number”, and one that Sakurai apparently kept changing over and over again until he felt it was just right. No title or release date yet, but they’ll probably announce those soon enough. In addition, there are rumors floating around about another end of the year album. We’ll probably know more after they finish up their fan-club lives (I didn’t really see much of a reason to report on these when the news dropped a while back).
Here’s to another active holiday season with Misuchiru!
I’m back! Quicker than expected, but not for long. Just wanted to make a post with a link to the full (radio-ripped) version of this song, since I actually really like it. In terms of ballads … they haven’t written one this good in some time. I’m pleased with both the vocals and the arrangement on “Hanatareru” and am now a fair bit more curious about their new album considering the two tracks we have thus far. Anyway, enjoy:
Well, it’s been a while since I’ve updated, but we finally have some news worth talking about!
It was announced today that Mr.Children will be providing the theme for the film “Seiten no Hekireki” (“A Bolt from the Blue”), which is based on the 2010 novel of the same name written by Hitori Gekidan. The song is titled “Hanatareru” (放たれる; Emergent – not quite sure on that translation) and is described as a mid-tempo ballad with a bright message. The method of delivery for the song has yet to be decided, but the movie will release on May 24th of this year. I’ll provide a brief preview of the song below – enjoy!

One more quick update – today, Mr.Children released their new Live DVD/Blu-ray and commemorated the occasion by uploading one more of the live performances from it. Today’s video is “Dakishimetai”, and it really sounds great. Please enjoy, and support the band by purchasing a copy if you can (and want to)!
Just a quick update – Mr.Children updated their Youtube channel again and released the live for “Happy Song” from their Tour DVD. Enjoy and comment if you want!
Today, Mr.Children uploaded the CM for their Tour DVD/Blu-ray and the rendition of “Not Found” from the Tour itself to their official Youtube channel. I’ll link the videos below, but I really like the look of this concert – seems somewhat more theatrical than what they usually do, at least for the opening.
