Lunar: Eternal Blue Premium CD

 

Review by · September 28, 2005

So you thought you had heard every Lunar album ever made? If you skipped this one, you would be wrong.

The Eternal Blue “Premium CD” was a bonus 8cm CD that came with the Japanese version of Eternal Blue for Sega’s “Mega CD” console (just “Sega CD” in America). The bonus album contained five tracks: three short and cutesy drama tracks, and two vocal tracks. Were it not for Lunar Songs 2, Lemina’s “Money ga Ichiban” (or “Money is #1” would be exclusive to this album. However, the only things found only on this CD are the drama tracks.

Since the vocal tracks are talked about in other reviews, I will leave them be and consider this a much more “informative” review. Let’s just say that this is the single most obscure Lunar album we could find, and we found it!

Lucia’s voice actress is Chisa Yokoyama, and Lemina is voiced by the well-known Megumi Hayashibara. They manage to pull off a delightful little banter in these audio tracks, though my basic knowledge of Japanese only takes me so far in enjoying these tracks.

If you want this CD, try to hunt down an import copy of the original Lunar: Eternal Blue. There is a good chance this CD will come with it. Of course, like many obscure CDs, I hereby declare that this CD is “for collectors only!”
