Unlimited Blade Works CD update!

Hi again! Did anyone rejoice in getting to watch Ryuusei no Gemini in their PlayStation 3 and PSP this November 25th? XD Now, there will be 3 CDs released to commemorate the theatrical film of Fate/stay night Unlimited Blade Works. All three CDs are to be released simultaneously on December 23rd, 2009.

The first and second was already announced which is Fate/recapture -original songs collection- and Mariage -tribute to Fate-. You can find Fate/recapture’s tracklist and information in Mari-chan’s post.

Mariage‘s tracklist is similar to Fate/recapture’s, the only difference is that it will all be the sung  by Sachi Tainaka. A new song, Alive will also be included in Mariage -tribute to Fate-. Mariage means “weddings”, “union” or “matrimony” in French.

Fate/recapture and Mariage will have a special sleeve for those who purchase the limited pressings. TMC-1012 and GNCA-1233 will be the catalogue numbers respectively. They are priced at 3150 yen and 2656 yen, including taxes.

The tracklist for Mariage -tribute to Fate- is as follows:

  1. disillusion
  2. days
  3. memory
  4. Over The Mountain
  5. Sakura Saite
  6. hollow
  7. Ataraxia
  8. Bokutachi no Mirai
  9. Ougon no Kagayaki
  10. Link
  11. Alive

The differences between Mariage and Fate/recapture are that the 2 bonus tracks and This Illusion (which is replaced with Sachi Tainaka’s disillusion) are not included in the former.

ricordanza -Fate/stay night TV song collection- is a best-of album of the songs originated from the TV series. A total of 10 tracks are chosen of which 2 opening themes, 2 ending themes, 3 character image songs and 2 insert songs. I’m still searching the information for the last track, imitation. Ricordanza means ‘memorial’ in Italian.

The first two tracks are the opening themes while the third track is the ending theme for the series. Hikari and La sola are the insert song for episode 14 and 24 respectively. Kimi to no Asu serves as the ending theme for the last episode for the TV series with Tooi Yume, Kirari, and Egao Hitotsu de being the character image songs of Saber, Rin Tōsaka and Sakura Matō.

Here is the tracklist for ricordanza.

  1. disillusion
  2. Kirameku Namida wa Hoshi ni
  3. Anata ga Ita Mori
  4. Hikari
  5. La sola
  6. Kimi to no Asu
  7. Tooi Yume
  8. Kirari
  9. Egao Hitotsu de
  10. imitation

 Done, see ya next time!

[Update#1]: According to the Japanese Wikipedia, “imitation”  is a new vocal song by Sachi Tainaka!
