    Wow his photoshop "skills" are getting out of hand lmao.

    Additional info:
    The new song has been composed by Yume Suzuki, the same composer of Frosty Rain, which has rearranged the song for the new single.
    The -Remix- song has been remixed by DJ-KAYA, and no, it's not actually Kaya himself.

    Is it bad I really like these? I just love the "drawn" outline.

    I'm gonna have zero expectations for this but at least we're getting two kaya releases (incl. the new schwarz stein single) in early '17. I wasn't really sure what to expect after he left chateau agency.

    If you quote the original post you can see them. I think something about the Ameba server they're linked from doesn't like direct links.

    I like them enough too. The style reminds me of Klimt, and the composition is like something you'd see on a cafe window during the belle epoque.

    I agree for the composition (I think Mucha was the biggest commercial artist during the belle epoque in Paris).
    But the whole semi-realistic face, etc, technique seems more Klimt.

    Either way, I guess this means Kaya's going to continue with the blasted chansons, huh? lol

    Too much space above the head, maybe there will be text there on the final one to balance it out?


    ...maybe?

    I like the covers and the pictures, look like those old trading pictures (in swedish they're called bookmarks, is it a swedish thing or does anyone know what I'm talking about??? http://dst15js82dk7j.cloudfront.net/210355/54779460-JML8d.jpg?name=F7.jpg)
    Don't get why everyone is complaining about the artwork...I'm more worried about the song :P Gonna do my best to be able to get into the Tower records event for this.

    That is really pretty, but I have no idea what you're talking about. The only thing I associate with bookmarks are those slips you put in a book so you don't lose your place.

    Okey, then it might be a swedish thing X) They're not that popular anymore now that the kids have their computers and whatnot::ash:: But it's really old, I still have some that my grandmother had when she was a kid. Presently I thnk they're more common to buy for decorating cards etc than actual trading like you used to do. And we also call what you described as a bookmark, swedish has very few words so a lot has two meanings XD

    Judging by that cover and information I'm guessing this won't be a new Taboo, what happened to Kaya's electronic/pop sound, I prefered that over his slow songs....

    Not really digging it, although it reminds me a little of 桜花繚乱ー百鬼夜行 era which is a good thing anyway.

    I quite liked it actually -- decent production and vocals, reminds me more of something like Last Snow. At least there are (mostly) "real" instruments in this too.

    By the way what does Yumeji actually mean? I looked it up and only got results for the painter Yumeji Takehisa (and the film loosely based on his life). The subject matter seems like something Kaya would cover.
