On preorders alone, the book is the #1 bestseller in Amazon JP's “cat book” category, lol. (This will definitely be why TBS eventually breaks up, huh?) MASKED RIDER SYSTEMwill release their live-limited live DVD, CAST OFF, from 2016-02-20. I want it :( Mis†akesold an armband and face masks. They also freely distributed their custom tea.

Mischievous has already been through several changes; having started as session band ABSOLUTE TERA.F, changing to formal band ISORA, and finally Mischievous, losing and gaining members all along the way...
After only 2 years of activity,
I've added 5 live-limited live DVDs to the Tatoeba Konna Hanashi discography. As usual, they were privileges for spending 5,000 yen at a live.
Tatoeba Konna Hanashisold lucky bags (5,000 yen each) via online mail-order, limited to 10 copies. Unfortunately, they didn't contain any CDs or DVDs―instead, they contained a calendar, photoset, masks, and t-shirt.
In an attempt to promote their upcoming oneman of the same name,

LIN's re-recording mini-album, Recollection of Phoenix, is available on Japanese iTunes. Unfortunately, it's not available on American iTunes―not sure about European, etc. Fairly pointless if we can't buy it though :'D
ALVION, ARLEQUIN, LIN, and label king zeebra are featured in Vol.021 of freepaper SEVEN.
With their latest single,
Onenessreached #8 on the ORICON indies and #65 on the ORICON major charts, respectively. Good job!

LINbegan shipment of the double-purchase mail-order-application privilege of their single Chaotic Resistance―a signed postcard. (There's no explanation of why it took so long... a postcard shouldn't take much time to produce, I would think!)

As much as I hate to say it, SIN and KKY can't keep a band together to save their lives, so don't expect much... haha. We'll wish them luck anyway, right ;)?
