BABYMETAL have announced the release of KOBAMETAL’s second book and T-shirts. The book was teased at the end of the last Da Vince News post back in July, and it will feature similar content to that of the series of articles released from December 2020 to July 2021 called “Metal or Not Metal?”. It will have double the number of articles as the Da Vinci News segments.

The book will be available at most stores/bookstores in Japan, but there will be a special tee available only on A!Smart, as well as a special bundle (book + tee) with different designs available on HMV and Tower Records. There will also be some pre-order bonuses depending on the store ordered from, and finally, there will be 2 events with KOBAMETAL at Tower Records Shibuya (Tokyo) and Umeda (Osaka) on September 30th and October 3rd, respectively.

The book releases on September 29th, the same day as the “10 BABYMETAL BUDOKAN” blu-ray/CD sets.
