Because this is news I cannot not be excited about…
Yes, for those who haven’t already heard, Mizuki Nana and T.M. Revolution are going to perform “Preserved Roses” together — the opening theme for “Valvrave the Liberator” (official Japansese name translation is more closely translated as Revolution Machine Valvrave).
Below, I’ve translated the messages both Nana and Nishikawa Takanori left on the official home page as well as Nana’s blog post regarding this announcement.
This is T.M. Revolution Nishikawa Takanori who will be in charge of the opening theme. With the “Kakumeiki (Revolution Machine)” being involved in the title, I thought “doing something that is revolutionary would fit with this series”, which is what led to this collaboration. I am very honoured to be able to have this opportunity with Mizuki-san, and I think we managed to create a song that reflects this series. Please look forward to it.
This is Mizuki Nana who will be in charge of the opening theme with T.M. Revolution. This song is both hyper and cool that I’m filled with the desire to deliver it to everyone soon. I get excited just thinking about what kind of animation would go along with this song, and in order to raise the excitement for this series, I will do my best.
And here is Nana’s blog post regarding this news:

There was a big announcement made today…!
Together with T.M. Revolution, we will be in charge of the theme song for the TV anime Kakumeiki Valvrave that will be starting in April~ (≧ω≦)/
To think I’d get such an opportunity!!
I was truly surprised yet very happy!!
The truth is that the recording took place 5 days after LIVE GRACE 2013 -OPUS II-…☆
I was deeply touched when Nishikawa-san celebrated my birthday (T^T)
I was nervous, but I think I managed to insert my Mizuki-ness by putting my soul into the singing!!
Everyone, please look forward to it ヽ(≧▽≦)/
I’m looking forward to both the song and the series. At first, when I read the summary, the first thing that popped into my mind was “Gundam.” And then I realized this is a series by Sunrise… so I guess I kind of understand why… ^^;;
Anyway, more information can be found on ANN.
