tbh, I never expected See-Saw rather an insert song for Lacus. Takanori is already obv. but somehow Nami Tamaki isn't announced for ED considering her appearance in SEED FESTIVAL?

Anyways, as usual:
Music will be Kajiura while lyrics by Chiaki

January is going to be epic with three new tie-in releases from Kajiura! That being said, I'm not very hopeful concerning the re-vitalisation of See-Saw apart from this singular release to be honest. The fact that we're not even getting a new studio-B-side kind of hints towards this being a one off for the sake of providing fan-service to Gundam fans... I think maybe a new concert is the absolute maximum we can realistically hope for.

Ι dont know. There have been tons of new GUNDAM series and even Seed / Destine HD remakes with the (failed in my opinion) Re-tracks arrangements, but a whole new song from a 18-year inactive group doesnt seem to be just for fanservice. If Kajiura wanted she could release it under FictionJunction, just like it had happened with Distance (that too was for Gundam) but she chose to resurrect See-Saw instead. Maybe she had nostalgia due to all the See-Saw songs they do on the lives and the 30th anniversary, or something.

Lets hope they ll catch this opportunity to release new album with those unreleased See-Saw songs from the lives (Cars, Mune no Yukue etc)

I see your arguments. I hope I'm wrong, but I definitely won't start hoping for anything for now.

Also, Mune no Yukue is technically released, just not as a See-Saw song. But it would be interesting to hear the original version.
 
Ιm not holding any hopes either. If its one off so be it. But for me it probably isnt. We'll see pretty soon, probably after the single's release.
 
Two don't resurrect if one don't want. Is Yuki the one who want or is Chiaki? What happen in 2005 and what changed in 2019?
TBH I have no hopes on a new album if they didn't even create a new B side for the single.

i mean money is always a good motivation. tbh looking at that anna ni issho datta no ni live from that flying dog event i do think this is an one-off thing. maybe it's just me overthinking and overimagining things, but that live performance was chiaki ishikawa singing with yuki kajiura playing the keyboard individually, not them being see-saw the duo. but there could always be surprise like chiaki ishikawa's special appearance in YKL 15 (or was it 16?). still kinda holding on for at see-saw mini reunion and/or special live because see-saw's songs are too good and (kinda like Kalafina with Wakana), their songs just don't hit hard without chiaki ishikawa's voice.

They re not too far from each other on stage. And its unlikely they d go to a huge event https://canta-per-me.net/live-events/2019-flying-dog-anniversary like that without rehearsing together. Besides the setlist says See Saw. Kajiura had her own section earlier at the event and that song was at the end of Chiaki section as a surprise. Also look at how both smile at the beginning of the song.
