Sakura Matsuri (桜まつり), the first ever talk show/fan meeting with the voice actresses of Hinabitter and Coconatsu, will be held on 17 April 2016 at Miraichushin Hall, Kurayoshi city, Tottori prefecture. During the event, a new song will be announced.
Yesterday I went to the Live5pb.2016 in Shinkiba Studio Coast in Tokyo. Live5pb. is an annual live held to showcase all the artists under 5pb. records. 5pb. is a video game manufacturer and a record label producer. 5pb.Games’s most notable work is Steins;Gate. They also do plenty of console ports, bringing famous games such as Muv-Luv and ever17 from PC to consoles.
Meet Hinabita’s rival, the idol group Coconatsu! Coconatsu consists of elder sister Shinonome Natsuhi and younger sister Shinonome Cocona. The group name comes from the twin sisters’ names. Unlike Hinabita, which is a rock band, Coconatsu does various genre of electronic music such as technopop, dubstep, and trance.
Hinabita (short form for Hinatabi Bitter Sweets), is a fictional band of five girls produced by Funaki Tomosuke, a composer of Konami Digital Entertainment. Initially a project of Konami Digital Entertainment to sell music digitally through downloads on iTunes, Hinabita has since gained popularity with Bemani players and even a considerable number of non-players and has expanded to many other kinds of merchandise.
