Preorders began for the Honjitsu, Mankai Sakura-iro! (Today is Full-Bloom Cherry Blossom-Colored!) album last month. The album contains songs that will be performed at the joint concert of the same name between The World God Only Knows and Hayate the Combat Butler anime on April 21. The album will feature duet songs between Shizuka Itou & Nao Tōyama as Hinagiku Katsura & Kanon Nakagawa, Haruka Yamazaki & Saori Hayami as Ruka Suirenji & Haqua d'rot Herminium, and a set between all four girls. Other tracks are also listed to be revealed at a later date. The collaboration album will be released on April 10.
Two more duet CDs have been revealed for the crossover as well. A first, “Advance,” will feature duet songs by only Hinagiku and Haqua, while the second CD, “Ringo Ribbon” (Apple Ribbon) will feature the duet of Ruka and Kanon. Both duet CDs will be released on February 13.
