ToS OVA-Ibitsu Preview

So as mentioned before, the second Tales of Symphonia The Animation United World Episode ending theme is going to be released on 4/29 and Frontier Works uploaded a preview of the songs on the single. Ibitsu's preview starts at 1:30.
Even though the preview uses the same part of the song as the OVA, it sounds like a new recording, which isn't too surprising considering the original short version was done 3 years ago.

The tracklist of Akatsuki is as follows:
1: Irodori
2: Ibitsu (Tales of Symphonia The Animation United World Episode Ending 2)
3: Akatsuki (Akatsuki no Yona Ending 2)
4: Akatsuki -instrumental-

ToS OVA to be relased in Germany

According to a news post KSM made on Facebook, they'll be distributing the Tales of Symphonia OVA next year on DVD and Blu-Ray. And yes, they do mean all 11 episodes.
(Sorry to any English speakers who got their hopes up when they saw the title in the backroom.)
