    especially if you live in Korea ^^
    i really hope there will be a DVD of this concert for a special edition of the OSTs :D

  4. mai Says:

    Cris – I just remembered, have you listened to the vocal version of Yoru from the Ragnarok 2 OST? It soulds very much like Ilaria! I’ll make a post about it soon. Probably tomorrow :)

    djsilt – Someone has to record that. Someone has to! That’s actually what I hope will happen :)

  5. cristian spain Says:

    WOW
    I’ve been disconnected from the ost (so lazy ^^), but I’ll check it out right now! Thanks!!!

  6. cristian spain Says:

    Awesome! new ilaria’s song… and so beautiful… xxx

  7. mai Says:

    I recommend Intro Theme, Din Don Dan Dan Fo, Hodo, Jumping Crisis, Arpia_Full, and Yoru of course! But everyone is wired up in different ways, so I guess everyone should just try listening to all of it :)

  8. A Gabriela Robin Site » Yoko Kanno Mini-Concert in Korea Says:

    [...] late than never. This performance happened in May 9, where it was apparently announced that the Ragnarok 2 Concert was going to happen [...]

  9. A Gabriela Robin Site » Ragnarok 2 Website Updates - The Superband Says:

    [...] I visited the site at a time they were updating their concert page… and it looked like there was a misplaced css div and the images were floating everywhere. After 2 minutes, the page was gone. Apparently, they have a new set of Kanno images to show off, including her portfolio, and the portfolio of her “Superband” that would appear later at the Ragnarok 2 Concert. [...]

    Very interesting information! Thanks!

    Bye

  11. Terrence Walker Says:

    Maybe Yoko Kanno doesn’t KNOW that she’s Robin?! ;)

  12. mai Says:

    Interesting theory, but that’d make her… a psycho :D

  13. marco Says:

  15. mai Says:

    Hi Yuu, all of the videos of the Ragnarok 2 Concert in Korea have been requested by Yoko and Maaya to be supressed from the public, and have also been removed from this website.

  16. Yuu Says:

    OMG that’s a pity.. Well, I’ll wait for the DVD! (If there’ll be one XD)
