Since Paradox Live is an AVEX project we won’t review any of its releases nor will publish links to CDJAPAN’s store (or any store) as all are abiding to the label’s request not to export any of AVEX pictures‘ artist releases. More info on this can be found – HERE.
If Avex change their stance on anime/anisong exports, we will then review releases from this project.
