The title for the 9th Story CD is revealed, but it’s only provisional. A piece of conceptual art (or key visual) is released, showcasing a futuristic look that includes girls with cat ears and a Revo-looking character with sunglasses. Is this a new installment of Revo fools his fans for a laugh?
Cat-eared “Revo” and his cat-eared friends from the future
The following image was made public today via the Sound Horizon official website:
The sci-fi look seems to clash with the tagline associated with this new Story CD:
“A story beginning from a certain antique shop.
If it had been this way back then, would something have changed?”
However, anything is possible (and anything makes sense) when it comes to Revo and Sound Horizon. Many theories have sprung up since the release of the image. The yelow and green blocks turn blue and purple when inverted, reminding of Hortense and Violette.
Also, it has been suggested that the grey shadow surrounding the main character’s face could be the sillhouette of a woman reaching out to him from above.
Album title revealed… or is it?
Along with the image, the 9th Story CD was given “provisional title” Bastet. All in all, many doubts are still yet to be cleared:
- Will the 9th Story be based in the future?
- Will it actually bear any connection with Super Marvelous Dimension?
- Does Bastet have anything to do with the Egyptian cat-looking goddess with the same name?
- Is it just a coincidence that “cats have 9 lives”?
- Is this an April Fools joke?
