The upcoming new album of Japanese Nu Metal band Maximum the Hormone (Death Note, Akagi) will include a special 156-page manga with 5 chapters. As this will be the first full album by the group since 2007, there is a lot of effort and expectations around it.
Yoshu Fukushu will be released on the Japanese market on 31st July 2013. Amongst the 15 songs are also four from previous EPs.
Here is the full tracklist:
Yoshu Fukushu [Our Merciless Home’war’k]
Bluetiful Intro:Tsukino Bakugeki-ki
Utsukushikihitobitonouta [Ode to Bluetiful People]
Benjo Sandal Dance [Toilet Sandal Dance]
Chu2 The Beam [8th Grader Beam]
Tsume Tsume Tsume
Rock Oreimairi～3 Chords de Omae Fullbocco～ [Rocking Retaliation: Beat the Hell out of You with 3 Chords]
Unbelievable!: Swomints Hockeleiro Mifeho
Mesubuta no Ketsu ni Binta(Kick mo) [Bitch Ass Slapping: and Kicking]
maximum the hormone
Koino Sperm [Amorous Sperm]
Alongside the songs of the Japanese band will also be a manga. The 165-page work is created by professional manga artists as described officially (“Ryo-kun’s inner world is exposed by professional manga artists.”)
This is not the first instance of connection between MTH and manga as they have provided theme songs for many anime shows including Death Note‘s “What’s Up People” and “Zetsubou Billy”, Akagi‘s “Akagi” and Air Master‘s “ROLLING1000tOON”.
