binaria's 10th anniversary

C90 came and went without much fanfare, but I'm liking Annabel's new album slow light, slow glass. M3-38, which will take place on October 30th, should prove to be more lively.

binaria is celebrating their 10th anniversary this year, and they have been busy throughout the year. In August, they released their first major single, "Kami-iro Awase", which was used as the opening theme for the TV anime Danganronpa 3: The End of Hope's Peak High School ~Despair Arc~.

The group has announced that they will be releasing their new album diez at M3-38. They will also be releasing a "10th anniversary box", which will contain 10 discs in total. Nine of the discs will be remaster of their past releases, from their 1st mini album Alhaja right up to their latest maxi single "双子のダイアログ" (released in 2012). Their best album sonido will not be included in the boxset. The anniversary box will also include the new album diez. For more information, please visit binaria's website.

Regarding Reupload

Hello everyone. I've been lazy lately, so there hasn't been any updates. I'll be posting some M3-37 news soon.

Regarding reupload, I am aware that all the DL links on this blog are broken. It's been several years since Nakidori started out, and since then several great English-language websites and forums devoted to doujin music have popped up. It's also becoming easier to purchase doujin music online. As a blog for introducing doujin music to music fans, Nakidori has run its course, and it is time to turn a new leaf. All DL posts have been taken down, and from now on Nakidori will become a news and information-only blog.

If you are looking for doujin music, you can go to They have an extensive amount of doujin music there, and they have multiple members uploading and reuploading stuff. You can also try the forum for new releases or request for older releases.

I sincerely apologise for the inconvenience. Thank you very much for your support after all this time.
