Keitai Sousakan 7 – First PV/Trailer released!

Following our previous post about Back-on singing the ending theme for the new jdrama Keitai Sousakan 7 (Cellphone Investigator 7/Cellphone Detective 7) we’re happy to announce that the production team have released the first promotional trailer for the series!

Alas we don’t get to hear the OP or the ED songs in this 4-minute preview clip, but it does give us a good idea about what the show will be like. As far as I can see, there is definitely some quite high-budget-looking CGI going around (think of the movie: Transformers (2008)) which includes the Phone Braver series characters (There’s at least one evil Phone Braver!) as well as a scary looking digger-truck that threatens the main protagonist at the start and end of the trailer.

The news comes courtesy of Affenheimtheater.de, who have cited Ryuganji.net as their source, although the video has been uploaded by tenmusu66 on Youtube. We’ve included the video at the end of this post, but a thank you to the three people above!

Let us know what you think of the PV? I have to admit I’m not convinced that I’ll like it yet, which is a view shared by Todd Brown of Twitch, as well as some commentators on Japan Probe, although trailers can be quite misleading and the series might turn out to be alot better! Either way, we do know that Back-on are practicing hard at their new song Sands of Time (pictures taken by Teeda from their official blog)!

Group Practice Kenji03 and Gori!
Icchan Shu!

Download the flower and Butterfly previews on Myspace as mp3s!

This probably qualifies as Yet Another Media News Post (YAMNP), but now that we’re just under a month away from the release of both flower and Butterfly, the wait has almost become unbearable (for me at least) without listening to the previews of either track at least once a day! >_<

So if you are experiencing the same kind of symptoms, and haven’t already recorded both previews (available from Back-on’s Myspace), fear not, because you can now download both clips from BOO as mp3s! They are a little quiet, so you might need to turn up the volume a little on your iPod equivalent, but hopefully they will be of some help whilst we all endure the wait!

New single covers for flower and Butterfly released!

As we reported earlier in the month, Back-on are releasing two singles – flower and Butterfly – on the same day of September 19th 2007! To add to the happy news, we can now oogle the new single covers for both releases, and they are (as usual) quite artistic!

The first images that we received (last week) were courtesy of avalonstar12/Tsubame, which you can find below:

Flower, courtesy of Tsubame! butterfly - courtesy of Tsubame!

which coincided with the preview clip release of the flower pv, and you can now see larger versions of the single covers in our Gallery by clicking on the images above or viewing some larger thumbnails below, courtesy of Amazon.co.jp!

I love both designs, especially after hearing previews of both songs – now available on Back-on’s Myspace! In case you weren’t aware of it already, flower is the new ED for the anime Eyeshield 21; and Butterfly is the theme song for the new j-drama Shinjuku Swan, where the latter is about:

Shiratori Tatsuhiko, a young man who becomes a scout for Shinjuku’s red light district

where the synopsis is from the D-addicts’ Wiki. Personally, I really do think that the two new singles will actually be even more popular than Back-on‘s most recent release BLAZE LINE/a day dreaming…, because if the previews are anything to go by: the songs are *really* good, particularly the chorus imho! Some fans have already suggested that the singles may build up to a full album release by Back-on, so hopefully that will happen soon!

Preview of flower PV on Back-on’s Myspace!

The video preview of the the flower PV was actually released last week (around the same time as the music clip I believe) but alas, I managed to completely blank it, so gomenasai for not including it in the previous news post! >_< Without further ado, you can click to visit Back-on’s Myspace for the preview clip, or watch it below on BOO! Please let us know what you think! :)

p/s: I ask this, because not only do we get to see Teeda‘s new hairstyle, this is also perhaps the first time that there has been an acting 3rd party (girl, in this case) in one of Back-on‘s music videos! Who is the lucky person, and how come it isn’t *cough* umm, seriously though, what does it take to be the lucky girl!?

Answers on a back of a postcard (or comment section) please! :)
