After celebrating five years in the music industry, anisong songstress Aimer is set to release her Best of Collection albums in May this year!
The Best of collection will be released as two different CDs, titled BEST SELECTION ‘blanc’ and BEST SELECTION ‘noir’ – a reflection of the name of her official fanclub, Blanc et Noir. Each CD will be released in three different editions as well: Limited Edition A will come with the music CD and Blu-ray disc, while Limited Edition B will come with the music CD and DVD. The regular edition will come with just the music CD. The coverarts for her best collection albums has been unveiled as shown below:

The tracklists of two CDs has also been revealed on her official site. The songs are organised and arranged in such a way that there will be a theme to both blanc and noir. ‘blanc’ will mostly contain heartfelt ballads and hits such as Akane Sasu and bouncier songs like Kataomoi while ‘noir’ will have upbeat and powerful songs such as LAST STARDUST and insane dream.

Video content for the DVD and Bluray would be composed of music clips and selected performances from Aimer’s performances of Aimer Hall Tour 2016 at Tokyo International Forum Hall A last November 6, 2016.
In addition with this release, each part of the collection will come with a newly recorded songs which will be announced at a later date.
Aimer’s first best collection albums are scheduled to release on May 3, 2017.
And finally! What excites me most is the announcement of her very first concert at prestigious Nippon Budokan!! AAAAAH! Well, I noticed that most Sony artists who releases their BEST albums usually decided to hold notable concerts like this, Kalafina or ClariS for example. But I’m hoping for a BD/DVD release since I can’t attend in August due to school huhu T_T. It sucks right? Can’t wait for this! Here’s some details, btw:
