  • @ElGuerreroNegro I think her works more into commercial now (Akatsuki no Yona and New Cross Ange). Or probably she is currently interesting in Asian Folk music, so maybe she wanted to make something different than her dark music before. I too want to listen her usual operatic vocal, I hope so~
  • I'm sad she doesn't make neoclassical darkwave anymore. Wokashi is weird and not in a good way. :(
  • Wokashi is really nice album, I think this ep much lighter than her previous releases. I agree with KP-X, her voice kinda weak than before but I'm still enjoyed it. And my favorite Hyakki Yagyou probably fit with Halloween theme~
  • Otoshimono, Kaguya and Kago no Tori are my favorite tracks in this album. Still, her voice seems a bit...weak lately.
  • Wokashi is definitely a must-buy. I guess I can call this album an "ecstatic journey of the soul".
  • Akiko-san is forever a goddess. By the way, this layout that last fm used now, really ruined a lot of thing. There isn't even a previous page section any more for the comment? And thanks for the hard work, SchwertRosen.

  • Can't wait for Wokashi, the first song in the trailer is everything that I need right now
  • And by the way, RIP Last.fm :(((
  • Wokashi trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tnVK44Dg1rA Sounds pretty great. Diverse and creative as usual.
