Ishikawa Rika’s 12th PB titled Hana Kokoro ~hanagocoro~ has been announced.
It has been about a year or so since her last release titled Lucky so fans who have long awaited another PB will get their wish next January. I’m not that surprised to see that a PB for her has been announced, since she is the only OG member that continues to release PBs, and while she releases only about one a year it’s well worth the wait.
The title means “Flower Heart” and from what I can tell it’s written in both Romaji and Kanji, which is a bit confusing (especially if the Romaji doesn’t match well) although something that’s usual in some releases. It’s a cute title and among the first written in Kanji in a while, since most of her latest releases tend to have an English title such as 24 twenty four or Lucky.
I’m really looking forward to this release since Rika has never disappointed with a PB, and while we only have the title and release date I hope we get a cover sometime in the next few weeks. Hopefully all Rika fans reserve their copy!
The release date is set for 1/27.
