I think I just post this here. I already told Phono about this on IRC, but he didn't understand me I guess.

When looking at the current entry on CDJ, the album is tagged by the shop system as "regular edition". From my experience, CDJ doesn't add "regular edition" tags when no limited/special edition is available. It would then just omit the tag. However the tag is there, and it makes me wonder why there isn't any other release type to be found on CDJ at the moment. I wrote them a mail, so maybe they can clarify this.

Now, here comes Amazon Japan, where, when searching for the album name, just a release appears, which is tagged as "limited edition".

What I also noticed, is the difference in price, when comparing CDJ and Amazon Japan. CDJ lists them as 3000 JPY and Amazon as 3675 JPY. This doesn't look like a tax thing to me, or is it?

There's an LE for each of the albums. Not sure what the difference is.

Amazon actually has both regular and limited editions up for preorder but yea, no idea what the difference is exactly, lol. Going by the description it's a special case and (bonus?) booklet.

Maybe I'm just plain stupid, but I can't find this regular edition on Amazon Japan. Can you perhaps link to the product page?

I got feedback from Toshi Makiya of CDJapan. According to him, the limited editions are only made available through Gust's Salburg shop. He doesn't mention Amazon Japan, but Gust is probably going to have an exception (again) here.

Fantastic piece of work, much stronger than the red album this time. The red one really lacks some "killer" tracks this time, like Weathervane or XaaaCi. on AT3.

And I couldn't believe it at first, but ORIGA does a terrific job on her tracks. Glad I got the whole package, was really worth the money

Agreed with it being excellent. However, I personally thought that Class::EXPAJA;, Hidra Heteromycin and Class::EXSPHERE_NOSURGE; did an excellent job as far as "strong" tracks are concerned for the red side.
