Cyborg Oretachi cover(s)



The one on the left is for the regular edition, the one on the right is for the limited DVD edition.

Although the size of these images from the Sony website means that it's difficult to get a good look at them, I have to say that my first impressions aren't that great. It's not that that pink mouse (?) robot thing looks just the wrong side of phallic, it's more that it's just kind of ugly.

I do like the idea that the limited edition CD gets a slightly different (and fairly funny) variation on the original though.

Also, from looking at that site, it seems like the very early pressings will come with a sticker which will give you a chance of winning a t-shirt. It doesn't specifically mention that you have to order the album through the site to get that sticker, but I'm assuming that's the case.

Anyway, thoughts on the cover (s)?

Thanks to sora kara!

i think its pretty cute.
partiularly the +dvd version.
im hoping that the booklet will actually have pictures of them in it though.

i guess youd have to be in japan to get that shirt eh? damn...id love to win something like that.

hey, this is halcali's first cd release with two different covers. (excluding the reprint of nosusume of course)

Hmmm I kinda like it. I cant wait to see it upclose and personal, especially the DVD edition one. I hope there are some recognizable faces on the robot suits there.

Crap. A chance at a shirt? Are you serious!? While im gonna be in Japan when this single comes out, Ill probably be back in the states a few days later. Does this mean that I wont be able to enter? If I dont get a Halcali shirt...

Oo, exciting. I didn't know HALCALI was coming out with a new album. I'm excited, even if the album cover isn't extremely exciting.

Is there much in the way of Halcali merchandise? I've never seen anything really mentioned, T-shirts etc..

But I have a feeling that I would have a hard job trying to fit into a hot pink T shirt designed for your average Japanese girl.

I've only ever seen a Halcali tshirt once, and that was on yahoo autions. It was just a white shirt with the nonsense kanji 春狩 (phonetically read Haru Kari, but it doesnt mean anything) on the front.
I think there were some headbands and underwear (?!) for sale once as some kind of promotion.
Basically though, no, not much.

Completely unrelated to the topic at hand(although I think the album's cover is cute too!), but I thought it would interest you to know(if you dont't already, that is) that HALCALI will be making an appearance on 口口口(kuchiroro)'s upcoming album, "GOLDEN LOVE":

Still kind of in disbelief about it myself, since I really like HALCALI, and am a HUGE fan of kuchiroro(absolutely adore them), so the idea of them collaborating is just Insane.

Here's a bigger version of the CD+DVD cover that I found on amazon.co.jp:

The big pink thing kind of looks like it's supposed to be some sort of pig-robot..?

Thanks cassie, i'll update the picture. I'm not sure what it's supposed to be...I'm still not sure I like it yet either.
