Wednesday: is this anyone else’s favorite day of the week, purely for the fact that most Jrock CDs and DVDs/BDs are released then? I could run on and on about why this this day is so grand but, since you’re reading this, chances are you already know why! Below we’ve collected titles from over 30 bands, all to be released within September. Let us know what you guys are most looking forward to this month, we’d really like to know! Personally, I’m super excited about a particular mini-album coming out very soon; need a hint? Look up! Next time we’ll be looking at the releases of October, so be sure to return next month!
