This is not the first time that CDs have been released of Hawaii: Part II, however. The first round of CDs were not available for public sale, instead they were given away as pre-order bonuses, or to those who donated over a certain amount towards the ミラクルミュージカル project, via their website.
Joe explains in the 2018 Reddit AMA:
“There were at one point Hawaii: Part II CDs as bonuses for people who donated to the project, but they technically weren’t for sale, so we limited the run to 100.”
These 100 CDs were printed and sent out in brown paper cases, with personalised messages written in invisible ink on the reverse:
These new CDs will bring official Miracle Musical merchandise into the hands of the fans once more. Because the special double CD is limited edition, will we see a single disc version go up for cheaper? Will the vinyl get restocked? Will we see Hawaii Part II get released onto other physical media, like cassette tape?
Whatever’s the case, these CDs will definitely sell out, just like the vinyl did, so be sure to get in early if you want to get your hands on one!
Update: as of 29th August 2023, these CDs have indeed SOLD OUT!
