Continuing the promotion of her upcoming MEG and MEG ZOMBIES singles (to be released on June 5th), MEG revealed the online game MEG THE WORLD today. Humorously touted as “what might be the world’s longest sideways-running RPG,” MEG wrote on her Twitter that upon clearing the game, fans will be able to understand the world of her new songs.
As well, an 8-bit version of the MEG ZOMBIES track “KISS OR BITE” is used prominently as background music. The full song was produced by TeddyLoid and will feature NARASAKI as a guitarist. So far, only the first stage is available to play, but there are three in total, and Natalie.mu has reported that the next stages will include more songs off the two singles.
Check it out for yourself at megtheworld.jp, and I’ll post a translation of the first stage here shortly!
By now, everyone knows about the mysterious MEG single announcement from several days ago (or I’m guessing you all do, since this post is so late?). Just in case there’s still confusion, though, I wanted to clear some of the details up.
This single is being released in two formats: one as MEG, and one as MEG ZOMBIES. Each of these contains different songs. The MEG + MEG ZOMBIES limited edition is both of those packaged as a special set, so while we still don’t know anything concrete about either of these releases, if you want the best of both, get that one! Besides, do MEG’s limited editions ever disappoint?
Like I mentioned in my last post, I do hope to keep up with this blog as much as possible, but I won’t always be able to update with news exactly as it breaks — so if you have new information to share, please feel free to let me know about it through my ask and submit pages!
Until now, MEG’s photo had been displayed on each of these sites, but currently, only a set of green footprints appears on every one. A few days ago, she tweeted, “I’ve absconded!” This connection remains a point of interest.
Furthermore, MEG will be taking part in the Shibuya and Harajuku joint fashion project “SHIBUYA HARAJUKU EVA PROJECT Vol. 2” starting April 24th. In accordance with the DVD and Blu-Ray release of Evangelion: 3.0 You Can (Not) Redo, she will be designing an Evangelion collaboration one-piece dress which is currently in the works.
So… MEG disappeared and so did I, kind of. I’ve been gone for almost five months! It’s a wonder I still have followers. :x There were a lot of reasons I stopped posting (mostly personal, some quite ridiculous), but I’ve really missed this blog and I want to come back. I’ll try to stay on top of things as much as I can, even if I’m not able to update too much.
Anyway, enjoy the weird viral marketing for her upcoming single!
MEG graces the cover of MARQUEE’s October issue, which also contains a 15-page feature on her (ten pages are said to be all pictures). CDJapan listed the magazine for order yesterday, so if you’re interested, be sure to check it out!
The online program DOMMUNE will host MEG for a second time following her previous LA JAPONAISE stream there several months back, this time promoting the release of her new album WEAR I AM. She’ll be talking about the creation of the album and will stream some of the live footage from the DVD of the limited edition release. A live DJ mix of MEG’s songs is also planned.

The covers and artist promos for MEG’s upcoming October 3rd album WEAR I AM have been revealed! The new album’s design is a collaboration with the British fashion brand Eley Kishimoto, and the limited edition cloth box art features the brand’s signature print. Meanwhile, on the regular edition cover, MEG is seen modeling an exclusive dress from Eley Kishimoto which has yet to be released.
WEAR I AM’s limited edition will contain a special DVD, origami paper using the same pattern in five different colors, and photo cards. See this post for more details on the contents of the album if you missed them before!
Any first press details have yet to be confirmed, but I’ll update when they’re announced.
Starchild has updated MEG’s page on the label’s official site with further details on her upcoming album set to release on October 3rd. Here’s a rundown of the information that’s been made available so far:
