As part of the 10th anniversary edition of Prism / プリズム, a “special benefits” CD called “Hikigatari Maniac Compilation” was included. I still haven’t found anything about the new album since its release, but Oku Hanako tweeted something about scribbles left over from a recording session and mentioned the bonus CD:
The songs listed:
- Harukaze / 春風 (5:20)
- Koi no Tenki Yohou / 恋の天気予報 (4:34)
- DROP (4:37)
- Birthday (5:00)
- Niji no Mieru Ashita e / 虹の見える明日へ (4:30)
- TAKOYAKI (Electric Piano) (4:03)
- Michi / 道 (Electric Piano) (4:40)
Of these, “Koi no Tenki Yohou” is the only one that was already hikigatari, and its timestamp matches, so it might have been included as-is.
Furthermore, there was a tweet mentioning a ballad version of TAKOYAKI posted shortly after:
I hope we get to hear these someday. Which one are you most interested in hearing? Did I completely misinterpret these tweets? Leave your thoughts in the comments!
