It has been revealed that Mika-chan will simultaneously release two best-of albums « DEARS » and « TEARS » on November 5.

« DEARS » and « TEARS » will contain 20 songs each (10 per CD + 6 per DVD), totaling to 40 songs that the singer has released since her debut song « STARS » to her latest collaboration single with Miliyah Kato, « Fighter / Gift ».

The two albums will have the concept « two tears » with the theme « tears for tomorrow » for DEARS and the theme « tears for somebody » for TEARS. Nakashima therefore commented, « It would make me happy if it becomes an album through which everyone can reflect on various memories while listening to the songs. »

The jacket covers for these albums were made with her debut single « STARS » as the base design. Changing the motif from « lotus » to « snow crystal », DEARS features the same picture of Nakashima that was used for « STARS », while « TEARS » features a picture that was taken in 2014.

Mika has released 39 singles since the debut.

Is there anyone who wonders "Why 40 songs?".
The answer is....YEEEES!... the latest single is a so-called "double A-side single" which is the first one for Mika-chan!! Yeah, as you know, the CD is always written "Fighter / Gift".

........................................................................... To tell the truth, "anyone" was me!! :oops: ....

Mika's talk on the web-radio about CD covers.... 2014.09.16

:arrow: Do not lay them side-by-side!!! Coz 18-year-old and 31-year-old!!... Who decided that???
At the photo shoot, I strongly insisted that I wanted to wear lots of makeup as it was pretty impossible to compare images side-by-side. But there was no room to resist... and I put a 'natural makeup' with natural hair.
The radio host said comparing 2 pictures and Mika in front of him... "Ultimate triangle eating! Three gorgeous dishes!" "I'll be able to have a nice alcohol!"

:!: btw... Mika was asked "Which song do you like best among your songs?" by a listener that night.
Mika answered "Favorite songs vary moment to moment, but I always like 'KUMO NO ITO'."... 8-) wow....!!
