The TOWER RECORDS Shinjuku store in Tokyo has announced the weekly TOP 10 anime single/album of October 21-27. The number one single of the 43rd week of year 2013 is Nana Mizuki x T.M.Revolution's "Kakumei Dualism" which was released in Japan on October 23. Following their first collaboration song "Preserved Roses" for the 1st season, the song is now featured as the OP theme for the 2nd season of the Valvrave the Liberator TV anime. The CD single also gets a super-good 2nd place in the Oricon weekly single ranking selling 80,775 units in the first week.
Because of these great success of the Valvrave songs, it was once rumored that Mizuki and T.M.Revolution's Takanori Nishikawa were going to get married sometime soon. It was true that we saw them together on Japanese TV so often recently. But happily for Mizuki's fan, Nishikawa denied the rumor clearly, saying "Absolutely not." on August 4 after he appeared on her concert at Seibu Dome as
a secret guest. Nishikawa married Yumi Yoshimura of Puffy AmiYumi in April 1999, but got a divorce in July, 2002.
Valvrave the Liberator is now available to to viewers in the following territories: US, Canada, United Kingdom, and Ireland.
