Mano Erina’s 4th single titled Kono Mune no Tokimeki wo has been announced. Like usual the release will have 4 versions – Regular, Limited A, B, and C – and it will include an event card for a Mano Premium live.

The lyrics are by Miura Noriko, composition by Hatakeyama Toshiaki, it’s arranged by Solaya and it will be released on the Pony Canyon label (Buono and Guardians 4 are on that label), this is the first single that is not composed by KAN.
From H!O: Hatakeyama Toshiaki is an ex-Sharan Q member who also composed Goto Maki’s “Yokohama Shinkirou” and “Blue Island”, as well as Viyuden’s “Koi no Nukegara”, and Heike Michiyo’s “GET”.
From the title (Google translation says “Kono Mune no Tokimeki wo” means “this beating chest”) it sounds a bit like a ballad, although it could just be an upbeat song.
Mano has been getting a lot of releases lately, this being her 4th single in a year (she has been releasing a single every 2 months since Otome no Inori in March, all of them major), so hopefully the publicity she has gotten will help her get good sales.
All info about Mano’s 4th single is gotten from that image, Play-Asia has it listed so it is somewhat confirmed, but I will update if some of the info changes.
The release date for the single is set for 9/30 and there is also a mention of the Single V’s release date (from Play-Asia) being 10/7.
EDIT: Single and date releases confirmed.
