Yay! I can't wait to get the new opening theme's CD and the soundtrack for the next movie. I was wondering how long it would take before there was a new opening theme.

I'm glad that Kimi no mune ni La La La is finally getting a CD release after all this time. I guess they just needed a CD to put it on as there really hasn't been that many CD releases lately that they could actually put it on. Looking forward to that CD for sure!

Wow... that's a lot of CDs at once for a series that doesn't have that many CDs to being with (I mean, compared to other series which got a CD for each new opening/ending song, and one, even two, soundtrack CD).

'Become a pointer'... what kind of title is that ? :p
Still, I'm reaaaaaly glad Rica's singing it again. Her opening songs are definitely my favorite in the series. I wonder what the opening will consist of... will they continue what they did with the first one? Like, having new Pokémon revealed each week in the opening sequence ? I really liked that concept.

And it's really cool we're getting the 3rd ending on a CD :), as well as that final DP ending song.

Cool for the movie soundtrack CD. I'm usually quite fond of Miyazaki's work for the series and movies.

And I'm quite looking foward to listening to BW's first ending new version :)

It's "pointer" as in "symbol pointing in a direction" (やじるし literally means "arrow symbol"), so it's presumably intended to be taken as "point yourself towards the direction you want your future to take".
