    I swear on my life, I was just sitting here fantasizing about the Eri Ito song from Tsubasa Tokyo Revelations being released on a new Works for Soundtracks, and thought, “How has there be no recent news about a new YK release in the near future? I better check canta-per-me” and BOOM! Dream come true!!!!
