The release date for ULTIMATE DIAMOND has officially been delayed by two weeks to June 3rd. I was not amused when I first found out, but after a little research (and recalling a certain blog post)… I guess it can’t be helped. Nana-san did express how shocked and upset she was over that certain particular news, but I guess I hadn’t expected it to affect the release date of the CD (she didn’t mention anything with regards to that).
From what I understand, KING RECORDS is taking out COSMIC LOVE and DISCOTHEQUE, and that is the main reason for the delay. All the current ULTIMATE DIAMOND CDs have to be scrapped and re-printed. Logically, considering what happened with the lyricist (園田凌士 – he was caught doing drugs) of COSMIC LOVE and DISCOTHEQUE, this makes sense. It’s a necessary step to protect Nana-san’s image.
Honestly, it’s sad though. Especially to think how much of an effect it might have on Nana-san’s upcoming releases (anything which might have the name 園田凌士 in the credits might have to be taken out).
At any rate, when you think about how upset Nana-san herself must be over this, fans really don’t have a right to be upset over the delay.
So I take back my original shocked outburst… XP
On another note… I need to finish my term report by next week and I have… two lines written down! \(^0^)/ Yes, I am screwed. Badly, I might add. -__-;; Seriously, nothing is helping my mood. D:
