Koshi Inaba News

Five and a half years following the release of his last solo single on CD, Koshi has announced the release of his long-awaited ninth single 「Hane」(Feather). The title track of the single will serve as the opening theme to the anime series Detective Conan from January 9th. The song made its world-premiere during the InterFM radio show Happy Hour! held at the HMV & BOOKS TOKYO opening event with Koshi Inaba as guest.

The single will be out on January 13th, 2016 with Koshi’s solo tour 「Koshi Inaba Live 2016 ~en III~」 kicking off just three days later. Several packages are available for purchase: CD, CD+DVD, CD+Blu-ray, CD+DVD+Bluray. The limited edition package comes in CD+DVD and CD+Blu-ray flavors and contains the songs that were rotated on a daily basis during the en-ball tour and were not included on the Blu-ray release of 「Koshi Inaba LIVE 2014 ~en-ball~」.

The “Ryu ga Gotoku” (“Yakuza”) special edition includes a special music video featuring 「Receive You [Reborn]」 as well as a special talk with “Ryu ga Gotoku” creator Toshihiro Nagoshi. Furthermore, the “Ryu ga Gotoku” edition includes a special download code for “Ryu ga Gotoku Kiwami” which unlocks a special opening sequence in the game. The content contained on the DVD as well as the Blu-ray that comes with the “Ryu ga Gotoku” edition is the same—to suit both DVD and Blu-ray viewers.

    Hm… I’m a little confused. Does the Ryu ga Gotoku Special Edition also include the 「Koshi Inaba LIVE 2014 ~en-ball~」 material?

    1. Tobias says:

      No, it is not included in the Ryu ga Gotoku edition.

  2. Christoffer says:

    Thank you very much for your quick reply Tobias! Then I will preorder the Limited Edition and maybe buy the Ryu ga Gotoku edition in the future.
