Eureka 7

As I mentioned a few days ago, Halcali’s new number Tip Taps Tip will feature as the closing theme to the new (3rd) season of the TBS anime Eureka 7. The new series kicks off this Sunday (23rd) from 7-7.30 am. Tune in if you’re around (and awake). If all goes according to plan I should be back with first impressions of (the new look?) Halcali next week.

Could you possibly also try to record the song and share the love?

I'd like to, but I don't have the means. On the other hand, Yukari said on Buzz Room last night that they'll be playing Tip Taps Tip on the show next week. If you can find some way of listening to Tokyo FM, that'd be your best bet. Although thinking about it, the Eureka 7 site might put up a clip of the ending theme at some point too.

This is off-topic, but having just recently learned of Halcali and since having devoured every song, picture, and video I could find and this being the only English internet resource I could find, I wanted to offer the observation: have you noticed how H is invariably on the left and Y on the right? Almost as if it is like a rule of some kind.

...you're crazy.

I can share the song when Eureka 7 premieres.

No, I can't say that i've noticed that before. I'm not sure it's intentional though, unless its some photographer quirk showing through.

I can share the song when Eureka 7 premieres.

I'm without internet connection at home (again) until early next month, so it'd be great if you could provide me with a link or something if you manage it.

Re H & Y on the L & R: Look at the videos for Tandem, the one with the two gangs, and Baby Blue -- never is it the case that H is not on the left of the pair. This holds for all but one photo I've seen as well. And what really tops it though, is that they are switched on the Ongaku no Susume cover, *but* facing the other way!

on the cover of strawberry chips single, haruka = right side, yucali = left side!!!!!

contradicts your conspiracy theory.

Correct, that's the one. My guess, though, is that the photo was left-right mirrored during the editing stage for aesthetic purposes. (I could find no identifiable asymmetry in their faces, so could not prove it.) And somehow it slipped past the evil-genius responsible for this conspiracy.

Also on the QuickJapan cover, which I've only seen on this website, Y is on the left.

But otherwise it holds. I just wonder if this is a pop-duo thing or a Japan thing or a Japan-pop-duo thing. The near invariableness of it I find intriguing: I mean watch the videos I mentioned, Y is *never* on H's right side.

Wonder if this H/Y placement means that Yucali is always designated driver? (at least in Japan)

I didn't really notice the left-right thing until I saw the Strawberry Chips cover and thought something looked a little funny about it.....

hehe. How weird is that eh?

qazmonster - please do share!

I like Brian's theory.

So apparently the left-right issue has not gone unnoticed. Should I have not brought it up in the first place? I can't say for sure. What I can say for sure is that a helicopter landed on my front lawn last night. And from it stepped a wizened japanese octogenerian (did they track me by IP?). He spoke to me in *very* broken English for about twenty minutes. All I could make out was something about "order" something about "universe and order" and he kept pointing to the Moon, which happened to be quite full. After a while of this he started coughing rather violently at which point two Yakuza-looking thugs came out of the helicopter and helped him back in. As the engines started up again, one of the thugs came back out and rather solemnly handed me a sword, sheathed. Considering I was in a robe and slippers with half a can of diet coke in one hand and a really expensive-looking samurai sword in the other, I felt uncomfortable. Are there greater forces at work here, forces greater than H and Y put together? Undoubtedly.

Some time having past now since my unexpected visit, I am more able to look back on it with a clearer mind. I feel I should admit that just prior to seeing the helicopter land on my front lawn, I was in fact dozing, half-asleep, on my La-Z-Boy. And also, in the interest of full disclosure, the half a can of diet coke was mostly filled with whiskey -- an hour ago of which was filled to the brim. A dream? I think that would actually be more disturbing: the Halcali underworld trying to communicate with me through my dreams. A total whiskey-induced fantasy? Well, there is still the matter of the sword, sheathed, sitting on my kitchen counter. It is very real. To test its in fact being real, I (very slowly) unsheathed it, just enough to slice some jalapeno jack cheese. The very exquisitely sliced cheese which I am eating as I type this.

What do you think of Tip Taps Tip?
