Seiyuu Unit Rhodanthe* from Kin-iro Mosaic TV anime held a new year concert earlier on January 1, 2016. The concert is called FIRST MODE, same as their first album. I feel the meaning is kinda collide with Hatsumode which is an activity of visiting shrine for the first time in new year. Not sure it is intended or not.
Anyway, the great news is the released date of the Blu-ray Disc is already announced. It will be released on June 22, 2016 and the price is JPY 7,500 + tax. No PV or commercial videos available about this for now. No image for BD Cover as well. We are still partially in the dark about this.
A little bit information, Rhodanthe* consists of Nishi Asuka, Tanaka Minami, Taneda Risa, Uchiyama Yumi, and Touyama Nao. They are the main casts of of Kin-iro Mosaic and they also performed the theme songs and insert songs for Kin-iro Mosaic and Hello! Kin-iro Mosaic. In this live event, Suwa Ayaka also made appearance as secret (special) guest. So, the line up is pretty good.
My wish is simple but can be difficult. I just want Rhodanthe* to keep the unit active even without Kin-iro Mosaic. Their studio recorded songs are pretty damn good although their live performance is pretty decent. 5 member is pretty well-balanced and the voice of each member can cover different range. They can keep perform as an independent unit. Perhaps my wish is too much but who knows?
