P5 fans rejoice, here come some lost Pizzicato Five sounds!
Hit TV drama "dakishimetai!" was originally aired in 1988, and it's back this year as a special sequel marking its 25th anniversary. The original had music by Pizzicato Five —at the time Konishi Yasuharu, Takanami K-taro and Tajima Takao— that had yet to be released. That's not all, Konishi Yasuharu was asked to make the music for the sequel, and this CD contains both the new music and the rare tracks from the original. Theme song "Aquamarine no mama de ite" is also included in both its original version (performed by Carlos Toshiki & Omega Tribe) and a new Konishi-produced cover sung by Every Little Thing.
The one-time sequel "dakishimetai! Forever" stars several of the original actors, and will be aired on October 1st from 21:00 on Fuji TV.
