Arpeggio's Trident release first single, "Blue Fields"


Virtual idols? Ai-Fi approves.

Arpeggio of Blue Steel's ending theme "Blue Fields" features several of the voice actresses from the series, Mai Fuchigami, Manami Numakura, and Hibiki Yamamura, who've formed a virtual idol group with their characters from the show. A pretty cute idea, and something I think we can totally get behind -- even if the show itself could use a bit of work. They even threw together a nifty CG promotional video to promote the song, which Jeff posted a few weeks ago, but the complete single is just hitting Japanese stores today.

In addition to the catchy theme from Arpeggio, the single also features the adorable b-side ballad, "Innocent Blue," as well as instrumental or karaoke versions of both tracks. In my honest opinion, the B-side is the better of the two, thanks in large part to some beautiful piano work. That said, it's still your typical J-Pop ballad, so if that doesn't float your boat, I'm not sure what to tell you. The single's available via CDJapan for a little over $10 plus shipping. You can also catch the video for "Blue Fields" below.
