Ok, now that Mis†ake has paused activities, I guess it's finally time for me to post about what they've been doing for the past 6 months, lol.
So here's a roundup of their lives and releases, since announcing their limited revival at the beginning of the year. Some of it's been posted already, but much of it has not. (Sorry for not doing this earlier, but the sheer amount of distributed/limited releases―and the zetsubou of knowing I can't get them―has made me put it off |дﾟ)

The latest minor news, featuring: AiM MaiM, ARLEQUIN, DECIDE, GLARD, LIN, Paranoid≠circuS, and REALies.
AiM MaiM will make an announcement at 19:00 JST on 2014-09-28.
ARLEQUIN have collaborated with fashion brand WRouge to produce their own t-shirts, which feature a caricature of vocalist Aki (with his signature hairstyle). They could have been purchased here―but sold out immediately.
DECIDE, the band which ex-NEGA bassist Ray produced, has announced their disbandment.
GLARD have announced their first oneman and mini-album!! The mini-album, From The 3 Words, doesn't have a release date yet, but their first oneman live, Straight Ahead, will be held on 2014-12-13 at FANJ-twice.
GOEMON RECORDS has re-opened its OHP. It seems that the label will start something called “goemon club” soon―maybe a fan club or a live stamp card.
GOEMON RECORDS has announced its Christmas live, which will feature ARLEQUIN, REALies, and a mysterious opening act: which―let's be real―is probably Call Me in their “we're an official band now!” form. Right?
Paranoid≠circuS will begin their second tour, SUICIDE PARADE ~Kyousei Renkou~ (SUICIDE PARADE ~強制連行~), on 2014-11-27. Their tour final oneman, NECROPHILIA, will be held somewhere in Osaka in January, 2015.
Ray will appear in the radio show VISUAL Tamashii (ビジュアル魂) on 2013-12-19. The show will also feature Otake (おたけ) (ex-CindyKate) and members of DECIDE and PLACEBO (プラセボ) [the two bands which Ray now produces].
Ray started his own online radio show called Raychel to Yukai na Nakamatachi (れいちぇると愉快な仲間たち), which aired its first episode last night and featured PLACEBO. By the way, it is produced by KSP, who also produces the REALies/GOEMON RECORDS net radio show.
In collaboration with the radio show, two lucky people will win special presents: a signed copy of NEGA's VANITAS, or a signed copy of PLACEBO's (produced by Ray) new CD.
Raychel BAND (れいちぇるバンド), the ongoing session band of ex-NEGA Ray, has announced a February performance. This time the lineup features ex-NEGA, SUZAKU (朱), and Vior gloire members, with an additional member TBA. Personally, it's a lineup that I would love to see as a real band!!
By the way, the event is sponsored by ELE-MUSIC, which is the label of ex-DAS:VASSER bassist Hideaki (秀暁). And the event features Pink-Tribal (ex-Aliene Ma'riage~DAS:VASSER~La'Mule members), DECIDE (produced by Ray), and Paranoid≠circuS (ex-SUZAKU roadie band). So it seems like a pretty cool event all around :)
ex-KALEN (カレン) bassist (and president of label Livqueur Records) Takaya will participate in a session band on 2014-01-05 at OSAKA MUSE. DECIDE, the band produced by ex-NEGA bassist and leader Ray, will also perform in a session at the same event.
