Rouge et Noir 第5弾 情報屋 柏木セナ編 『Pure Bluff』(Rouge et Noir Vol.5 • Jouhouya Kashiwagi Senna Hen)

Hanakagami has announced the fifth volume (symbolizing the Joker) for their Rouge et Noir series! ( • v • )

Synopsis (Paraphrased):

After having their operations crippled by the special wide-area criminal investigation unit, the syndicate “House,” distributor of the drug “Rouge et Noir,” has been gradually losing its power. 

During this development, you, a new member of the narcotics suppression squad, are ordered by your section manager (Suou) to act as liaison between your unit and an information broker named Kashiwagi Senna.

Thus, your section manager’s orders mean one thing—you will be responsible for his well-being.

Senna who is overly capricious, frustratingly manipulates you with his words and actions—but even so, for the sake of ensuring the annihilation of House, you secretly commute to and from your base of operations and Senna’s hiding spot. However…

Release Date: November 29th, 2017. 

i have gathered my thoughts after the concert tonight and i would just like to say that btob literally sound better than their cds irl and they are such amazing performers that i’m incredibly humbled to have had the opportunity to be a part of this. recordings don’t even do their voices justice at all and changsub’s voice in particular is one that cannot be accurately captured. i’m still completely floored by them and i wish i could fully thank them for giving me one of the best nights of my entire life. 💙

I answered all of the "Interesting Music Asks" because I was bored. Enjoy reading (or not reading) the depths of my music tastes.
