Genjitsu no Yohane: Blaze in the Deepblue is out today! And my copy was waiting for me when I got home from work! :akko_excited:
So much for doing anything else at all for the next week or so.

Another Anime Con was a lot of fun! Got to hang around today with some friends today to wrap up the con.
Highlight for me was of course my first time performing in an idol showcase. :mexcitedmiku: And getting to share some excitement for Genjitsu no Yohane by doing Forever U & I (from the penultimate episode). It was really fun putting together the cosplay and figuring out the choreography from the episode, which is all I had to go on since it hasn't been performed live yet. :TamakoLaugh: (I'm actually really interested to see the choreo that Aikyan will use in the Yohane Live; there are a lot of cutaways in the anime MV that I had to fill in, and which will probably be filled in differently by Aikyan. :akko_excited: )
And all the other performances were all so good. :akko_listen: I really love the idol community around here; everyone's so good at performing, in addition to being so supportive and full of positive energy.
An instagram story with part of my performance (I'll post full video later when I have the official video or a friend's): https://www.instagram.com/stories/cavoritelizard/3219339293166979068/

Here's the official chart for translating the runes from Genjitsu no Yohane into Japanese. Charts like this have been floating around on Discord, but I can't find them anymore cause Discord :akko_sad: . Also this one is shiny, new, and official. :anya_amazed:
Time for a Mood Music Monday, this Monday's music mood being Heroic.
Gonna go with Be as one!!! from Genjitsu no Yohane ( :akko_cry: ), because nothing makes me want to dress as a tokusatsu hero and save some possessed deer with a katana more.
Be as one!!! by Dia Kurosawa, Ruby Kurosawa, and Chika Takami - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZqlckYMGafo
This was apparently announced on stream last night but I was like 75% asleep during that...
We're getting a Yohane scale! :akko_excited: We're already getting a prize figure too. So two new Yohane figures in the near future, and Alter's doing a reissue of the Halloween figure (already have that one though :nadeshiko_2: ).
I hope they make figures of the rest of the cast in their Genjitsu no Yohane outfits too (they would make for a really neat set).
New song from the Genjitsu no Yohane anime! La la 勇気のうた. Also has a very distinctive "idol" feel to it, though unlike Wonder sea breeze did not feel like early Aqours/μ's.
When I heard it, I thought it sounded vaguely like a Liella insert song, or maybe a Nijigasaki song. Well, turns out Niji was the better guess: Morito Yonezawa, who's written a few things for Niji (Itsu date for you!, Analog Heart, Maze Town) was one of the composers. Another was alura, who hasn't done anything Love Live I think but has written for some idol groups, and Fi'Ne, who I know nothing about.

Time for the final episode of Genjitsu no Yohane (for real this week) :3540_Aqua_cry: .
I finally got the GnY neso in, and I decided to make her a little staff of her own. I might put on the cosplay later myself for some celebrating. :AquaYeah:
Today's #AniAnimal are all these animals from "YOHANE THE PARHELION -SUNSHINE in the MIRROR-". Is that dog Shiitake?
今日の #アニアニマル は『ヨハネ・ザ・パレリオン -SUNSHINE in the MIRROR-』のこの動物たちです。あの犬は しいたけ じゃない？
There's gonna be a new Aqours song for the Genjitsu no Yohane game! :mmikusing:
Looking forward to the game of course. I preordered it for Switch, since I wanted a physical copy with the limited edition goodies and I'm hoping that it will work well as a handheld game for plane/train rides.
New Aqours song from Genjitsu no Yohane! :mexcitedmiku:
"Wonder sea breeze" - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IAiqYXOiZA0
This song feels the most idolish out of anything in the series. Composed by 倉内達矢 [Kurauchi Tatsuya], who did several µ's songs including Sunny Day Song, so it makes sense. Also apparently composed 冒険Type A, B, C‼, which really makes sense. It's neat to see a callback to the ocean motif in Aqours songs, especially with the video; it looks like they're underwater, with fish, a reef, and clamshell background. Overall feels kind of like a return to traditional Aqours.
Also love the splitting into GnY subunits for the verse parts. Guilty Kiss front and center almost needs no comment. I really like the other two subdivisions' vocal blends, but especially Maru-You-Kanan. :nnezukolove56:
And the outfits are nice. :zerotwoheart: Again, much more idol-ish than what we've seen previously in the series. The white tailcoats actually look similar to the MIRAI TICKET costumes, but the tops are different (and with subunit colorings!).
Today's #AniAnimal is Lailaps the wolf from "YOHANE THE PARHELION -SUNSHINE in the MIRROR-". Yohane seems to be the only one able to understand Lailaps and everyone just hears her bark.
今日の #アニアニマル は『幻日のヨハネ -SUNSHINE in the MIRROR-』より 狼のライラプス。ライラプスの言葉を理解できるのは ヨハネ だけのようで、誰もが彼女の吠え声を聞くだけです。
