Review forthcoming. TL;DR: Chiptune that doesn't feel quite as gimmicky as it probably should. Some seriously excellent hooky guitar lines with some solid instrumentation show why Anamanaguchi are leaders in the "chip-punk" (god, that's a bad name) scene.
Incomparably greater in size and scope than its predecessor Dawn Metropolis, and even though it can get exhausting listening to an album over an hour and fifteen minutes long of the same style of super sugary electropop over twenty-two tracks, this is as good as serious chiptune music gets.
Since I first heard them a while back doing the opening theme for The Nerdist (;geek plug) I've detected a lot of potential; and on Endless Fantasy they finally realize that potential. While Anamanaguchi were by no means bad, I have to admit their previous albums/EPs were more akin to snack-foods than real meals. rWith chip-tune and the like it is very easy to be a one-trick pony; Anamanaguchi easily avoid this as most songs on here stands out well on their own. In addition, the key use of vocals on "Japan Air" and "Prom Night" works perfectly with rounding out the edges of an already well put together album. 4.1/5
Fuck yes new Anamanaguchi! It rules but I'm not a fan of those club tracks with the autotuned femvox. Thankfully there's only a couple. But I really like the direction of this album, it's sorta a mix between Dawn Metropolis and the Scott Pilgrim soundtrack, with some added dub and trance elements.
