Just like the previous full album, it was announced that K-On’s new album got No.1 spot at the ranking which will be published on 8th November with selling over 127000 copies in a first week.

As you might know, the theme song of the Evangelion Movie “破” by Utada Hikaru was not included in the sound track album of that movie.

However finally you will be able to listen to the song “beautiful world”, because Utada decided to put it into her best album, “Utada Hikaru Single Collection Vol.2” which will be released November. This song will be acoustic version, according to Cinema Today (Japanese).

 As you might know, Anime is deeply loved by almost everyone living in Japan. Age and sex does not matter. Also songs related to Anime are popular in Japan. In fact, Anime has been a huge impact on the music industry. I found another proof today.

Do you know a temple which features “moe” style? No, it’s not an otaku’s new business. This temple, 了法寺 (ryouho-ji) is an established site and it is said to have been worshipped since 1489.

This temple has a unique approach to its operation. They feature “萌え (moe)”. For example they have the “moe” board and Maid Cafe at the site! And now they have got a theme song (actually this was released at the comic market 78). And the title is : 寺ズッキュン!愛の了法寺!フルVar. (Temple of love…. sorry it is impossible to translate!) You can watch the videos related to this song including choreograph here.

And this song have been downloaded from the Anime channel, Animax‘s official mobile site more than any other song!
