Perfume World Tour 3rd finally heading to USA, London, Singapore!


It is a pity that I will not be going to Perfume’s Japan tour “Gurun Gurun”, but sure made me happy in the wee hours of the morning.

At around 5AM (GMT+8), Perfume fans from all over were going bonkers over articles both online and on newspapers from Japan.

As of 7AM Singapore time, Perfume’s official site has announced World Tour 3rd and its venues!

AFA11 – zomgwtfbbq


I suppose you can already guess what this is going to be about! As you have probably heard, the next Mikupa will be held in Singapore, at the Anime Festival Asia 11, on the quirky date of 11.11.11, Friday night. If the Sapporo concert was anything to go by, we’d be getting the magical glass screen and also an exciting lineup of new songs by popular producers. I do hope they play some old favorites too, though!

One of the things to look forward to is definitely the 39’s, the live band who played for the previous Vocaloid concerts. I really enjoy their live arranges of classic songs, and damn, their skill level is really something to behold! Also, I wonder if we’ll see any music producers being invited, too.

The Limited Edition version of the CD comes with a DVD with a short version of “Laser Beam” PV and some jacket cover with photographs of the making of the PV.

White Rock Shooter !?


Just found out from Siliconera then Famitsu.

Could the figma of the Special Edition be this White Rock Shooter design or just a Black Rock Shooter repaint?

>> Siliconera article
>> Famitsu article (Has pictures of BRS’ ally, “Prototype”)
>> BRS game official site

EDIT: Apparently this design should be the figma for the Special Edition as a picture of the prototype is seen on 2chan.
