    I’m going to need this. I pre-ordered it on CD Japan, just waiting for the package now. I’m not sure which version … I have not heard any of the songs yet, but I’m sure it will be worthwhile.

    The AKS company makes it very difficult to be a fan, which is increasingly obvious that it is intentional.

    Type B it is. Just received it in the mail yesterday.
