Have not really talked about it much before but I produce lounge music together with the Japanese group called vividblaze where the tracks have been used on all seasons of the TV Show Culture Japan.
We decided to put together a CD with all those tracks and so the album Mirai Music was born. We completed production of the CD mid last year but only found time to get it onto the distribution networks of late.
If you are feeling broke then do a search for "Mirai Music" + "vividblaze" + "mp3" on Google or Youtube and download it for free ^^;
Mirai Music is also Creative Commons meaning that you are free to modify and distribute the source tracks as long as its not for commercial purposes - so use in videos you make is fine. If you got ads on those videos then thats fine too. Just dont repackage and re-sell the original tracks thats all ^^;
First photo is of the whole package which as you can see comes with some nice booty.
The following videos contain music from the CD.
The CD comes with a sleeve like so.
11 tracks - I sing the chorus on Mirai Mechanism ^^;
The CD includes postcards of many popular illustrators who have doodled Mirai-chan for us. As the CD went to production last year however, the set does not include some of the latest illustrators like Iizuki Tasuku.
Mirai in Winter school uniform illustrated by Kobuichi-sensei.
Mirai in Summer school uniform by Hagure Yuuki-sensei.
Mirai in her Solar Marine uniform illustrated by Piromizu-sensei.
Mirai in her Aqua Skin swimwear by Refeia-sensei.
Remove the CD from the sleeve to find the bog standard plastic CD case.
The booklet contains artwork from the Mirai Millennium universe.
Lyrics contain original Japanese language and romaji so that you can sing along to and learn Japanese at the same time.

And just to recap, the physical CD of Mirai Music is available from AmiAmi (shipping in a couple of weeks time), digitally on iTunes and Amazon or if you are feeling broke then search on Google sensei for the mp3 to download for free ^^;
If you want to use any of the tracks for videos that you make and distribute then feel free to do so at no extra cost ^o^
