UNDER CODE PRODUCTION has announced that, in collaboration with SHOXX, it will release its 10th anniversary memorial last omnibus, High Style Paradox 2003~2013. The mail-order-limited omnibus will be released in March, and will feature all significant bands (32 in total) signed to UNDER CODE PRODUCTION throughout its 10 years of activity.
Those who purchase the omnibus before February 28th will receive a special 24 month calendar.
Because the omnibus is mail-order-limited through SHOXX, it will not be available to overseas customers via usual means. However, I organize a group order as soon as I find a viable shopping service—expect a separate with details.
I really don't want to start a flame war or some kind of long debate on the subject, but Eiji (the leader/vocalist/songwriter for both キボウ屋本舗(kibouya honpo) and 秘密結社コドモA (himitsu kessha codomo a)) just posted this on his blog, and I really felt like this is something fans of his/theirs should definitely read.
September 08, 2008 00:47 Reasoning in today's world
Toketsu Kuma has recently been receiving many e-mails recently that apparently, my previous bands are releasing CDs?
Weeeeell... I had no idea. Did the other members?
I understand that it's just business and many different things happen for different reasons, but I just wish someone would've let me know. I know it's the past, but since this is our flesh and blood, I'm angry, and also sad.
I really just wanted to say that sanbun and Toketsu Kuma records didn't have a thing to do with this. I'm sorry.
*notes: Toketsu kuma is eiji's own label he formed after kibouya's disbanding, and sanbun is the abbreviation for サンドイッチで１２０分？, eiji's current band/project with takken.
I know there's probably some little translation errors, but those are the basic ideas.
The main reason for posting this is that, since both of these are re-releases, many people buy under the ideal of "supporting the artist", and I feel like it should be known that in this instance, you're only supporting the label, not the artist.
① Brand X has posted news of a few new UNDER CODE releases. The three releases are alternate versions of old best-of compilations, but they are unique in that they are being sold by WORLD TEMPTATION ENTERTAINMENT. That is the same company that sold KISAKI's solo album The Solitude Songs, which means that these new releases will similarly be distributed "worldwide."

as much as it pains me to sell off my dentaku collection, financial situations are tight this month and i am forced to sell off my two dentaku cds. Only a handful of these where made and released at Eiji's lives. I paid $60 for each album ordering through a friend who went to his live, but i know that is completely unreasonable to ask for full price so i'll be cutting the price that i paid in half. This is the best 8bit angura kei I have ever purchased and it makes me sad to see them go, but it is a great thought that I'm able to spread the albums around to different people. I only have one copy of each album so its a first come first serve type of thing. I ship next day, and accept paypal. i also ship internationally and will provide you with a tracking number (if you want it that is)
Looks like Kibouya Honpo is giving us one last farewell present! It's recently been announced that UNDERCODE PRODUCTION will be selling DVD's of their last two performances (Feb 10/11). More information below!

① Tons of releases were announced through Brand X today, some surprising and some not. Arc has a new look and is releasing something new, and there's a new volume of High Style Paradox, the first in over two years!. There are also a ton of new releases from chariots (I guess KISAKI wasn't lying when he said he was going to push them to the top!) and tracklistings to ClearVeil's upcoming CDs. Heeere you go: ② UNDER CODE's 5th anniversary soon~

① Surprise surprise, Kibouya Honpo will be simultaneously releasing two new singles this fall. Entitled EREKU Tousui (エレク統帥) and ANARO Gunsou (アナロ軍曹), both singles will contain three new tracks and will sell for 1,575 yen on 8/22. I'm sure we can expect a flood of other fall releases to be announced soon.
② To add the already insane spate of memorial releases, KISAKI has announced two more, this time for KISAKI PROJECT. First will be a 2-disc "gorgeous" memorial CD set, entitled Eien no Yume (永遠の夢). The first disc will apparently contain only one track--KISAKI PROJECT's "last song," Eien no Yume (永遠の夢). The second disc will contain 14 tracks (including a Jui-only version of Shinki [深絆]). After the memorial CD set will come a memorial 2-disc DVD set, entitled for Lovers・・・. The first disc will contain five PV clips, while the second will contain seven tracks and a special message track from the band's last live. Here are the tracklistings to both releases:
Eien no Yume (永遠の夢) Disc 1: 01. Eien no Yume (永遠の夢) Disc 2: 01. Kioku ~After Confession~ (記憶 ~After Confession~) 02. Mayaku ~Taiyou no Genkaku~ (麻薬 ~太陽の幻覚~) 03. Midnight Promise 04.

③ Of course we know that the memorials to KISAKI can't end there. SHOXX will release a special edition entitled KISAKI CHRONICLE, which will chronicle his entire history. The publication will come with a CD, a poster, and a card with a serial number, all for 4,100 yen (But sorry guys; it's mail order only). The CD will contain two tracks: 01. Soumatou ~PAST SKY~ (走馬灯 ~PAST SKY~), which is a brand new song by Phantasmagoria, and 02. Material Pain (LIVE VERSION). To further frustrate overseas fans, ID JAPAN will be collaborating with KISAKI to release a slew of memorial items in stores, which, among other things, will include a memorial photobook. Finally, it seems that Cure will be running a large feature on Phantasmagoria in the newest issue.
Hey everybody. How are you doing? I'm back from a break with a new computer and Kibouya Honpo in said computer, so I'm doing pretty good. Hope you all are too. I'm just got finished ripping Type B to my computer and I'm translating the albums. However I can't read kanji.. so I'm using a bot to translate the song titles. Can someone who actually knows Japanese confirm or correct these for me?
① Himitsu Kessha Codomo A (秘密結社コドモA) is back! With six members! I don't know why! Anyways, they've got new costumes, six members, and two new releases. Pretty awesome. Check behind the cut for information about the releases and a link to the new costumes.
