Hi, it's around that time of year again. The summer Comiket, i.e. C78, will take place from August 13 to 15. Not many circles have put up info concerning their C78 releases so far, though several Umineko-related groups have posted info about their upcoming releases.
dai and Luck Ganriki will be collaborating on Umineko no Naku Koro ni musicbox -霧のピトス- (Kiri no Pithos). Incidentally, Kiri no Pithos is the name of the new opening theme for Umineko episode 7: Requiem of the Golden Witch, composed by dai and Luck Ganriki. The song is sung by 木野寧 (Kino Nei), who also sang "Happy Maria" and "Usan no Kaori". Presumably the new OP song will be included in the album.
猫招き歌劇団 (Neko Maneki Kagekidan), the circle that provided several Umineko ending themes in the past, will release a new single, temporarily titled 惨美歌. 本木咲黒 (Motoki Zakuro) will return once again as the lead vocalist.
グラサンねこ will be releasing When They Sing vol. 3, which will include tracks from past Umineko games.
Voltage of Imagination has announced recently that its latest project will be an image album based on Nakamura Erika's light novel series, Double Brid. The project, titled Depth Break, is headed by vocalist Mitose Noriko, who will also write the lyrics for the song. Oshima Hiroyuki, Luca, and Dani will be responsible for the composition. The album will be released early at C78, but its official release date is Sep 8. The album will be bundled with a short story written by Nakamura Erika herself.
Concerning the request, it has proven difficult to locate some of the requested items, particularly the M3-25 releases. Therefore, I'm afraid I am unable to fulfil all the requests. If any of the other staff is able to find them, that would be great.
