Weekly Movie/Music update: Around 220 new J-Pop, Anime, Soundtrack & Movie releases - Koda Kumi Black Cherry Live Tour, L'arc~en~ciel - Drink it Down, SomaBringer OST, Bangai-O OST & more


Welcome to this week's Movie/Music news roundup, containing new Japanese and Hong Kong Video and Music releases from this week listed at Play-Asia.com. Around 220 new items are covered in this week, including new J-Pop, Anime as well as Japanese, Hong Kong and Western movie releases and much more.

Koda Kumi Live Tour 2007 - Black Cherry - Special Final In Tokyo Dome [Limited Edition Jacket A] is one of the interesting releases. Koda Kumi is known for her soulful voice and the strong tempo of her dance music. She is also considered a trendsetter, therefore being able to listen to her sing and dance in her fashionable outfits and make-up are a double treat.

An all time popular rock band, L'arc~en~ciel also released their newest single Drink It Down. It carries the theme song from the hit game Devil May Cry 4, and is a blend of gothic spookiness and sheer kinetic power. Like the game, it overwhelms the listener with its raw passion.

Other exciting video game soundtracks that are released this week include SomaBringer Original Soundtrack and Bangai-O Spirits Audio Collection Plus.
