From 21:00 today, a new KISAKI lucky bag has been released at the LINofficial web shop!
Each bag costs 10,800 yen, and only 10 copies are available. It is eligible toward the 8,000 yen privilege (LIN last live DVD or demo CD). There aren't any details about the number or worth of the contents, but the shop does give this brief description:
“Precious releases, goods, and α [unspecified bonus contents], related to KISAKI's various bands, which were just discovered in the warehouse.”
Of course the part about the warehouse is probably BS, but I still wonder what the contents are... probably some reproduced photos, stickers, and maybe a bootleg live DVD? Like the other lucky bags, we'll have to wait until the mid-July shipping date to find out.
KISAKI will participate in a 90s visual kei event in September!
The event, 「GLAM POP WORLD」 ~1990 Nendai Osaka BAND Daishuuketsu Matsuri~ (「GLAM POP WORLD」 ~1990年代 大阪バンド 大集結祭り~), will be held on 2016-09-18 at Osaka (大阪) BIG CAT. KISAKI's special session band will perform as a special guest:
KISAKI SESSION BAND V. Haruhi (春陽) [ex-Ove~etc.] V. Taniguchi TOMOROU (谷口トモロウ) [ex-【denno:oblaat】~etc.] G. YAYOI [ex-MIRAGE~etc.] G. Ryu (龍) [ex-Mystic Moon~etc.] D. Yomi [ex-【zɔ́ːdi̽æ̀k】~etc.]
As previously announced, ex-KISAKI band STELLA MARIA will hold a one-day revival at the event--but KISAKI still won't be participating in that one, lol.
wyse, Ravecraft, GRASS, LAID, and GIGASLAVE will also hold one-day revivals at the event, in addition to further unnamed bands (TBA).
STELLA MARIA will hold a one-day revival on 2016-09-18!
The news was announced yesterday by ex-guitarist seine. He revealed that the band will hold a live somewhere in Osaka on 2016-09-18, but further details are TBA. (KISAKI was the band's bassist for a short time, but somehow I doubt he'll participate. Will keep you updated, tho❤ Edit: KISAKI clarified he will not participate.)

THE BLACK SWAN had an English interview at Shattered-Tranquility. There are a few interesting bits in there, but I'd thought I point out that they say the next version of OUSIA will include a few more songs, including a ballad.
KISAKI (LIN) will appear in magazine ROCK AND READ Vol:064, to be released on 2016-02-26.

LIN will appear on nico nico channel FOOL'S MATE channel on 2016-02-17 from 20:00 through 21:00.
The YouTube version is a completely different recording from the DVD version, so please check it out even if you own the DVD. And by the way, these videos will only be up for a month, so watch them while you can!
Vasalla × WITH SEXY one-day-revival live DVD, Film of LOVE INSANE, is finally being shipped. It was supposed to have shipped on 2015-12-10, but was delayed due to an error in manufacturing.

Paranoid≠circuS will participate in a threeman with REVINE and Galumia, and it appears that the band plans to “hijack” the event as a celebration for drummer 紲-kizuna-.

At Oneness' last live, a lottery (3,000 yen spent on goods = 1 ticket) was held, through which members' personal belongings and other items were available. One of the items was a live DVD of their 2015-07-10 live.

LIN is the cover artist for free paper SEVEN Vol.025. They'll have a special interview about their activity pause.
Oneness, who recently disbanded, are liquidating their goods via the Double River Record web shop. Rare posters, towels, cheki sets, and other goods are available again, as are additional quantities of their memorial pamphlet.
Back in his Syndrome days, KISAKI was a guest member of ANTIFEMINISM (アンチフェミニズム). This year, the project will reach its 15th anniversary―and KENZI and KISAKI have collaborated to produce an ANTIFEMINISM special event!
Before that, LIN will serve as special guest during MANIPULATED SLAVES' 20 year anniversary event in November:
LIN is now available on Namamail V, a service in which you pay 300 yen per month (per subscription) to receive realtime emails from your favorite musicians. Users can actually reply to these emails as well, although the musicians' email addresses are kept secret.
Some of you might remember that KISAKI actually did this last year as well―anyone who still has a subscription to his solo Namamail will be transferred over to the new one.
KISAKI fractured his foot at a recent LIN (凛 -THE END OF CORRUPTION WORLD-) live, and it will take about a 1½ months to heal. LIN will be very busy lately, but it seems that KISAKI plans to push through the pain.
By the way, KISAKI also mentioned that LIN are doing photography for something today.
KISAKI's monster 90s VK band revival project, Rin・ne・ten・sei, continued today with ~Cry-Max Pleasure 2014~ (輪・廻・転・生 ~Cry-Max Pleasure 2014~). The event was held at ESAKA MUSE and was completely sold out!
I'm sure we'll see setlists and the like in coming days, but here are a few details in the mean time:
The first 100 people who purchase LIN goods at lives will receive PROMOTION DVD 「Chaotic Resistance」. According to the photo in this post, I'm guessing that it's a live clip or live footage PV?
Paranoid≠circuS' latest single, Chikonka (鎮魂歌) is now on sale. By the way, if I haven't mentioned it yet, they're signed to ex-DAS:VASSER label ELE-MUSIC!
Paranoid≠circuS drummer YUSURA (ユスラ) seems to have left the band on 2014-05-21, due his mental instability caused by an accident he was involved in. The band announced that it seems implausible for him to continue band activity, although this wasn't a 100% concrete statement.
Here's the latest minor news from BALA★NCE, KISAKI, LIN (凛 -THE END OF CORRUPTION WORLD-), Oneness, REALies, and Tatoeba Konna Hanashi (たとえばこんなはなし).

At the chariots-requiem live on 2014-04-15, the band will sell special cheki, chariots releases, and “Alfred rich rock” branded lighters.
I thought I'd posted about this, but guess I didn't...?
KISAKI and KAMIJO will hold a special talk event sponsored by ZEAL LINK on 2014-04-11 (today!) as part of the store's new ZEAL LINK CHANNEL series. Kaya and Kon (紺) (CELL) will appear as special guests. Tickets were awarded to those who purchased special ZEAL LINK-limited photocards.

KISAKI and the other LIN (凛 -THE END OF CORRUPTION WORLD-) members have been TwitCasting occasionally. Follow KISAKI's TwitCasting account for future updates.
LIN guitarist CERO has clarified that his name is pronounced セロ (sero); I guess some people were mistakenly calling him ケロ (kero).
Oneness is in the middle of shooting photos for their new look. In the mean time, vocalist JUKI (ジュキ) has written an interesting blog post about the band's past costumes.
On the topic of Oneness, we all know that the initial press of their single SETSUNA SAKURETSU (セツナサクレツ) sold out immediately and reached #4 on the ORICON indies chart. Well, if you recall, the band quickly put out a 2nd press, and it seems that too has sold out.
ex-SIVA drummer Kiri (霧) will hold his session at Freaks' Music Production's sponsored event, Age of the Neo Freaks Vol.1, on 2014-05-01 at Birth Shinjuku. 【V. (TBA) / G. REI (レイ) (@NNIVERSARY) / G. Ue (Vampire) / B. MA-YA (Pan-d-ra) / D. Kiri (ex-SIVA)】

As you recall, KISAKI announced his 2014 birthday celebration event, FREEDOM 20140309, to be held at shinsaibashi BASSO. A high resolution version of the flyer for the event has been released (above), and KISAKI has cleared up the LIN “revival(?)” business:
the end of corruption world is just a one-day-limited reunion of KISAKI and the ex-LIN (凛 -the end of corruption world-) members. So it's not an official revival of LIN as some of us speculated. However, KISAKI mentioned that he does plan to properly revive LIN in 2014, so wait for that news to come, perhaps in the later half of the year.
KISAKI has announced a memorial event for AYAME, the ex-drummer of MIRAGE who passed away this year. The 3 day event features a slew of one-day revivals from infamous 90s visual kei bands, with MIRAGE headlining each event. Check out the full details below:
As I revealed in October, KISAKI will be returning to Taipai with special guest Sui (ex-Megaromania) next year! Complete details (mostly) of the event have been released:
KISAKI will return to Taipei on 2014-01-11 for a special additional performance of his 20th anniversary celebration event series. C'est la vie ~REMAIN OF THE 20TH YEARS HISTORY~ Taiwanhen (台湾編) will be held at PIPE Live Music, and will feature KISAKI in a special band with ex-Megaromania vocalist Sui. (The full lineup of the special band is TBA, but my guess is that it's similar to SchwarzVrain!)
Several Taiwanese visual bands will appear at the event, as will ex-VAGERKE leader's new band GLARD. A special tour package for Japanese fans, which includes exclusive events and an exclusive novelty present, has been prepared. Furthermore, special presents will be distributed to attendees on the day of the event.
The organizers of this year's “KISAKI advent in Taipei” have announced that KISAKI will return! On 2014-01-11, he will appear at Taipei live house PIPE Live Music with the event C'est la vie ~REMAIN OF THE 20TH YEARS HISTORY~—this time featuring ex-Megaromania vocalist Sui and ex-VAGERKE band GLARD. Full details TBA on 2013-10-26!!
KISAKI has announced a special Christmas Day sponsored event, at which his one-day-limited special band SchwarzVrain (featuring ex-Megaromania and F・B members) will perform!!!!
C'est la vie ~REMAIN OF THE 20TH YEARS HISTORY~ Saishuushou is the final chapter in the celebration of KISAKI's 20 years of band activity, and will be held on 2013-12-25 at OSAKA MUSE. It will primarily serve as a oneman for special band SchwarzVrain, but will also feature a friendship performance by Raychel BAND (れいちぇるバンド), and special opening acts GLARD (ex-VAGERKE) and DECIDE (produced by Ray).
So what do you think?! Personally, I'm super excited. I just wish we could see this event!! Let's pray for a live DVD... and that SchwarzVrain and Raychel BAND will become real bands!!
KISAKI has mentioned that he will make an announcement in his blog, etc. on August 31st. IMO it seems that this won't be a huge announcement (eg. a new band), but will probably be about his participation in a session band that he mentioned.
KISAKI announced via Twitter that he has decided to perform this year after all (he had previously said that LIN's activity pause live would be his last live for 2013). He will release information regarding the performance on August 31st (incidentally, that's a very important day for him).
Before anyone gets too worked up, he has also said the following: the performance won't be “just a half-baked session”, but it also isn't a LIN revival, a new band, or a previous band's revival (ie. don't expect Phantasmagoria). Regardless, I'm happy for KISAKI to return in any form.
The UNDER CODE PRODUCTION OFFICIAL WEB SHOP has announced the second (and last?) part of its last special fair. This 2nd part introduces a handful of new, rare items, but unfortunately does not include any new privileges (however, the 5000 yen bootleg live DVD privilege from the 1st part of the fair still applies―at least until the end of July). Check out the list below:
Earlier this week, the official web shop added two special KISAKI photoset sales. First, an ultra rare collection―limited to 1 only!―of over 30 photosets (about 150 photos in total) of KISAKI's time in MIRAGE, Syndrome, and ANTI FEMINISM. Second, 53 sets of 5 random offshot photos of KISAKI from his time in MIRAGE~Syndrome~Phantasmagoria.
The super rare 30 photoset collection costs 15,750 yen and is limited to 1 copy only. It contains 4 photosets from the MIRAGE era, 1 from his appearance in ANTI FEMINISM, and 25 from his Syndrome era, as well as a bonus MIRAGE postcard. As of this post, the collection is still available here, so grab it now if you really want it!
The more accessible SPECIAL OFF SHOT photosets are only 1,575 yen each, and 53 of those sets are available. The photos in each set are completely random, and although the listing states that they're from MIRAGE~Syndrome eras, the preview photo shows mostly Phantasmagoria era pictures, so take that as you will. Those sets are available here (and do apply towards SPECIAL FAIR PART:1).
As previously mentioned, UNDER CODE PRODUCTION's treasure book ARCHIVES 2003~2013 includes a ticket to a special launch event. Since it was originally announced, the event has changed venues, and additional details have been released:
The event (which will still be held on June 29th at 14:30 JST) will now be held at Rozetta (across the street from Shinsaibashi FANJ-twice), rather than Shinsaibashi food & bar Beginning as was initially announced.
The event will feature talk sessions, Q&A, games with prizes, and more. UNDER CODE is currently asking for question submissions for the Q&A section (email with title 「インストアイベント」 to email@example.com). And, of course, goods will be sold during the event, with those who spend 4,000 yen being allowed to participate in satsueikai.
The following goods will be sold at the event:
cheki (set of 2)
LIN: 「Obscure Ideal」, 「Reflect of Killing Fleur」, AWAKING FROM -INDEPENDENT “MAZE”-
Megaromania: Megaromania (TYPE A/B/C), Artistical Glint TYPE A, Propaganda (TYPE A/B)
KISAKI and LIN are heading to Taiwan in a few days. Check out their special event lineup below:
The main event is KISAKI ADVENT IN TAIPEI 「~Obscure Extra Show~」, at which LIN will perform a oneman show (with opening act Taiwanese visual kei band NARAKU).
The night before the oneman, KISAKI will appear as special guest at a visual event featuring Chinese visual bands Lycoris (蕊), SPADE14, Initial Retribution, virulent hana (罌粟花), and Februarius (貳月).
While KISAKI is busy at the special event live, other LIN members RIKU, KANATA, and REIYA will appear at a special handshake event. The event is limited to 100 participants, and tickets will be freely given to those who arrive with a copy of Chinese visual magazine VISUALZINE VOL.9 (which features a pullout poster of KISAKI).
UNDER CODE PRODUCTION has closed・・・ In memorial of 10 years of this legendary and unorthodox label, a new bible will be released: ARCHIVES 2003~2013. Furthermore, this timeless collector's item will include UNDER CODE PRODUCTION's last live DVD!!
UNDER CODE's “treasure book” is called ARCHIVES 2003~2013 and will be released on June 20th, 2013, through the label's official web shop. The book will collect 128 full color pages, and will cost 12,600 yen. The book will feature 6 major sections, but will also include a two-point special privilege, as well as a web shop limited privilege:
A great number of artists' official photos

【WEB SHOP PRIVILEGE】
Unique, only-one-in-the-world special CD by Ray (NEGA) × CO- (F・B) special unit AD LIBBERS (アドリヴァーズ), in which they create a completely original song based on the title you specify
KISAKI has finally revealed the “UNDER CODE PRODUCTION LAST COLLABORATION”... It's a special collaboration unit band, 「D・N・A」 which will appear on a new tribute to hide omnibus!!
As part of hide anniversary project ROCKET DIVE 2003-2014 (which celebrates the 15th anniversary of his passing, 20th anniversary of his musical activities, and 50th birthday), his tribute album series hide TRIBUTE SPIRITS has been expanded. Throughout these two years, 6 more entries to the series will be released―starting with two visual kei entries, hide TRIBUTE Ⅱ -Visual SPIRITS- and hide TRIBUTE Ⅲ -Visual SPIRITS-.
UNDER CODE PRODUCTION special collaboration unit 「D・N・A」 will appear in the second omnibus, covering hide's Junk Story. The lineup of the unit is unknown, but the photoshoot featured all vocalists of UNDER CODE's currently-active bands, plus KISAKI―so, we can assume those people will be involved.
hide TRIBUTE Ⅱ -Visual SPIRITS- will be released on July 1st, 2013. Tracklist is below:
KISAKI has been dropping hints about “UNDER CODE PRODUCTION's last collaboration.” Although it's unclear what the collaboration is, we have the following information:
It involves the vocalists of all current UNDER CODE bands―they just did a photoshoot (see above) with KISAKI specifically for the collaboration.
It probably involves music―KISAKI's been in the studio working on arrangement.
It seems to have been decided at the last minute―KISAKI said that he's been in the studio for hours, under intense pressure, trying to finish by the upcoming deadline.
My guess is a last collaboration song, maybe something like KISAKI did with Wataru, RIKU, and Jui in 2007 when 12012, Phantasmagoria, and VIDOLL were graduating from the label (...well, were planning to, anyway). What do you think? Whatever the last collaboration is, we'll find out on May 3rd, when it's announced at UNDER CODE PRODUCTION's last live.
2013-04-30 edit: A special photoset of the collaboration photos (seen above) will be sold at UNDER CODE's dissolution event for 2,000 yen. Cheki from the photoshoot will also be sold, in pairs, for 1,000 yen.
Long story short, I'm super happy with the lucky bag! Even though I own a ton of UCP releases, it still managed to give me 4 new ones (so normal fans should be even more pleased!). And anyway, what I really care about is the goods, and I was extremely satisfied in that area.
So, if you've been thinking about it, go ahead and buy one!
KISAKI will release a special lucky bag to celebrate his 20th year of band activity! Furthermore, he has decided on a spur-of-the-moment birthday party, to be held shortly after his 20th anniversary memorial live.
KISAKI's lucky bag will include a great number of rare items (music, goods, etc.) of his successive bands from throughout his 20 year history. Furthermore, the purchase privilege is 1 cheki, and 2 photos (of 5 possible) from KISAKI's mysterious early bands (when he was only 18~20 years old!). The bag is available, in extremely limited quantities, for 3,675 yen through the official web shop.
Furthermore, KISAKI has decided on a spur-of-the-moment birthday party, to be held late on March 10th at Shinsaibashi soma, shortly after his 20th anniversary memorial live at Osaka BIG CAT earlier that day. KISAKI will appear along with his hand-picked “Chikasen's most interesting”―Ray (NEGA), KANATA (LIN), KEETO (Dali), CO- & YUKIHIRO (FUTURISM・BOYZ)―and will spend the night comfortably celebrating (no performances will take place) with attendees.
Tickets to the party are available now through the official web shop for 6,000 yen. Only an extremely limited number of attendees will be allowed, and only those 20-years-old or older will be allowed to enter!
14 years after pausing activities, 90's visual kei monster band 【zɔ́ːdi̽æ̀k】 (zodiac) has announced their revival. The band will revive at their December sponsored event, Zodiac,Resurrection~THX'90, which will feature lots of Matina-era musicians!
Most importantly, KISAKI will appear as a special guest, with his own session band featuring musicians from throughout 90's visual scene. Soleil monster band 覇叉罗-vasalla- will also appear for a one day revival, as will ex-Matina session band S-M-L, which features ex-members of Matina bands MIRAGE, Zephyr, and Lavender. It seems that more acts may be announced as well!
Pretty exciting stuff. Love these 90's visual revivals―only wish we could see them!
The KISAKI PROJECT feat.砂月 (SATSUKI) single Sou ~Twinkle Vitality~ has sold out! ...Accordingly, UNDER CODE PRODUCTION has labeled the single a “limited first press” and announced a new second press, to be released this October.
The second press is called 壊詞~an ideal of beauty Desperate~ (Kowashi). It features the same contents of the original press (three songs plus a live DVD), with the addition of one new song and one re-recording. Furthermore, this second press includes an application paper which can be mailed in for the chance to receive an additional live DVD (specific contents unknown). That live DVD will be given to 100 random applicants, in a lottery style system.
Unfortunately, KISAKI has revealed that this was the end of the 輪・廻・転・生 ~A RETURN OF “VISUAL MONSTER” (Rin・ne・ten・sei) event series. Furthermore, he revealed that it's the very last revival live of MIRAGE as well. This was a great year for 90s visual kei revivals―can't last forever, can it?
A few days ago, KISAKI seemingly deleted all personal posts from his blog (release/live information posts were spared). For those of you who have been asking about it over twitter, this is the story:
As you know, KISAKI was in the hospital for a few days last week. After being released, he posted a picture of paper cranes he had received from fans during his hospital stay. However, a Japanese fan recognized this photo―recognized it from a simple Google image search for “paper cranes.”
When this came to light, other fans stepped forward and revealed that KISAKI had passed off pictures from Google as his own in several other entries as well. A list was compiled of all of entries containing faked images: in all, there were 10~20 entries.
The problem with this is twofold. First, KISAKI effectively committed copyright infringement, as he passed these pictures off as his own. Obviously none of us really care about that aspect. The second, and more insidious, problem is that it calls into question whether KISAKI was telling the truth about the contents of the entries to begin with.
For example, KISAKI posted a picture of food he had eaten while in the hospital, and that image turned out to be stolen. Does this mean that KISAKI was never in the hospital to begin with? Similarly, KISAKI posted a picture of his shattered car window after it was broken into during the night, but that image too turned out to be stolen. Was he lying about his car being broken in to?
The vast majority of the stolen images were benign―a picture of pancakes, a glass of alcohol at a bar, etc.―but, as you can see, a few cases are troubling. In an attempt to avoid the issue altogether, I suppose, KISAKI deleted all of his almost 5,000 personal blog entries.
Although I could never condone using stolen images so brazenly, I'm extremely saddened by the loss of years of information and memories.
KISAKI has been released from the hospital! After being taken in for emergency surgery on the 12th, KISAKI has finally been given doctor's permission to leave. Furthermore, KISAKI says that he is well enough to perform, so 凛 -the end of corruption world- (LIN) will appear at today's 2012-07-17 event as scheduled.
Yesterday morning, KISAKI awoke to pain and repeated vomiting of blood due to his long standing condition of internal ulcers. He has been taken to the hospital and will receive emergency surgery today. His doctor has ordered a stop to KISAKI's activities for the time being, and as such, he will not appear at today's planned live with 凛 -the end of corruption world- (LIN). Any changes or updates to his condition will be shared here.
In 2008, KISAKI was featured in a manga anthology called 新日本タブー地帯 (Shinnippon TABOO Chitai), in a short story about his history as a musician. Well, fellow UNDER CODE fan _hibuki_ has translated it to English! The translation is available at her deviantART, below. Be sure to thank her (and check out her awesome illustrations too)!
KISAKI has announced that he will appear as special guest at a Chinese visual kei event in Shangai, China! The event, KISAKI ADVENT IN SHANHAI, will be held on June 29th at Kento's Live House.
The event will feature live performances from four Chinese visual kei bands and one Japanese band. KISAKI will participate in a session band along with ex-Synside guitarist Lin (who lives in China). 凛 -the end of corruption world- (LIN) will also “appear” by way of a film concert (eg. pre-recorded live footage of the band will be shown).
After the concert ends, KISAKI will participate in a handshake and signing event open to those who purchase merchandise at the venue. Sounds like it's going to be a great event! (And now that he has his passport updated... maybe KISAKI will finally come back to the West!)
As previously mentioned, UNDER CODE is supporting ex-「あゃ」 (「Aya」) [and ex-chariots support] drummer 兼継 (Kentz) by sponsoring his “last stage” events. It turns out that “last stage” doesn't just refer to musical retirement...
Through a press release, Kentz has revealed that he has been diagnosed with terminal cancer. He wants to take the stage one last time to, quite literally, celebrate the last stage of his life. Below is a rough translation of his statement:
I've come to understand that I have terminal cancer, and I decided I wanted to return to the stage in my short remaining life, so I talked with the ex-「Aya」 members about a revival live.
Each member, despite his current activities, willingly agreed and so we set about determining the details.
It crossed my mind that I was with chariots two years ago.
Since this will probably be my life's last live, I thought chariots should by all means appear and suggested this idea to KISAKI, who agreed.
At first I intended to produce the event myself, but since I didn't have any experience I found it difficult to book a lineup, and so I contacted KISAKI (who has considerable experience with event production) and he agreed to arrange everything.
For KISAKI's willing agreement, I am truly grateful.
KISAKI has been involved in many crossroads in my life.
Back when 「Aya」 was expanding through Kantou, whenever we had office problems, he constantly invited us to chariots lives and always kindly gave us advice.
And now, with my cancer battle, he tells me “don't give up”.
In that way my respect for KISAKI has grown considerably, and for his help producing my last live, I am truly grateful.
After all of this, I consider him an older brother.
Everyone, please come to my life's last stage and burn the images into your eyes and commit them to happy memory.
UNDER CODE has announced that the privilege for buying KISAKI PROJECT's new single, Sou ~Twinkle Vitality~, from the official web shop has changed.
Those who buy the single from the official web shop will still receive an instrumental + live footage data disc. But as a special Valentine's Day present, those who purchase from the shop will also receive a bonus 8 page booklet signed by KISAKI!! This bonus privilege, however, is limited to 100 copies.
By the way, more info about the data disc was also revealed: it will contain an MP3 of the instrumental version of Kagen, and an mp4 video of the band's live performance of Wasurenagusa from their 2012-01-30 live.
Yay! Several goods from KISAKI PROJECT and the 輪・廻・転・生 (Rin・ne・ten・sei) ~A RETURN of “VISUAL MONSTER”~ live series have been added to the official web shop. Most importantly, the KISAKI PROJECT demo single that was previously live-limited!
KISAKI PROJECT feat.砂月 (SATSUKI) has announced a new single! The single includes one new song, a re-recording of an old KP song, and, as a bonus track on the initial press only, another new song with lyrics written by SATSUKI. The single also includes a live DVD with band's performance from the A RETURN of “VISUAL MONSTER” event that was held last night.
Additionally, those who purchase the single from the official web shop will receive a data disc which includes instrumental versions of the songs and additional live footage. (Those who purchase from the official web shop will also have their item shipped a few days earlier, on February 11th.)
KISAKI PROJECT feat.砂月 (SATSUKI) -
想~Twinkle Vitality~ (Sou)
2012-02-15; 3,150 yen; single CD + live DVD; first press; complete pressing
※ official web shop privilege: instrumental tracks + live footage data disc ※ official web shop privilege: early release date 2011-11-22 CD 01. 想 (Sou)
CD 02. 勿忘草 (Wasurenagusa) (new arrangement, rerecording)
CD 03. (Unspecified song) (bonus track) (first press only)
DVD 01. (30 minutes of live footage from 2011-11-27 event)
The lineup for this release is: Bass & All Compose. KISAKI; V. SATSUKI; G. JACK (ex-Gilles de Rais); G. Yoshitsugu (Eins:Vier); D. HAYATO (ex-Blue).
Ok, so this isn't official yet, hence the member-locked post.
But anyway, KISAKI posted some photos recently, and, although they're tiny as usual, they've revealed KISAKI PROJECT's next plans a little early. First, the evidence in question: exhibit A and exhibit B. ---
From the first photo, we can see that KISAKI PROJECT did some new photography (SATSUKI previously didn't wear lipstick), so that's cool. The bit of text we can see announces a new release: the vertical line is likely part of 「 (quotation mark), and below that is CD, below that is the Japanese phrase for tracklisting, and below that is LIVE. So my guess is that at least one type (if there are multiples) contains a live DVD.
Things I can't make out: below the word LIVE, there's “《Bass&”, but I can't think of any meaning for that. Bass and vocals rerecorded -versions? Also, at the bottom, we also see the word KISAKI and the forehead of some guy.
The second photo is a shot of the same flyer, but in the design stages. This one is tiny and so a lot harder to work with. However, we can see that the release is titled in the form 「X -yyyy yyyyyy」 (I can't make out any characters beyond that). We can also see that it will be released on 2012-02-13!
Now, you might notice that there are two smaller blocks of text below the main one. In UNDER CODE's flyer style, this usually indicates more releases, advertisements for old releases, or celebration lives. Or the blocks might also be explanations of multiple types. But I can't say for sure—any clues/ideas?
Finally, the lower half of the flyer appears to be an advertisement for a live; we see that “KISAKI PROJECT (japanese)” band that was hinted at in the first picture, and, at the very bottom, we see Ikebukuro CYBER. So definitely a live; looks like a two day sponsored event, in my opinion. Finally, keeping in mind that the bottom half of the flyer is for a live, I looked back at the first picture and I'm now thinking that “forehead guy” is HIDEAKI of DAS:VASSER (check the latest photo of them).
So! Total results: new release on February 13th, may or may not have multiple types, but one of them probably has a live DVD attached (or live recordings?). Furthermore, a new event, possibly two days, but at least featuring DAS:VASSER. Maybe.
Great news! KISAKI PROJECT's upcoming single, Lin's live and video clip DVD, and NEGA's upcoming live DVD are all now available at CDJapan!! CDJapan is the only place to buy these releases if you live overseas. But hurry—quantities are very limited!
We were a bit too desperate buying presale tickets for the KISAKI PROJECT revival gig ( http://www.under-code.jp/20111127/ ) so we have 8 tickets left over - 2 tickets around number 50, and 6 tickets around number 200 (from first presale, not bad numbers considering the size of the venue). So i anyone is interested, we're selling them for the original price of 6800yen+handling fee=7000yen (the handling fee is originally higher so we're making a little discount)
please comment or message if you're interested, thanks!
UNDER CODE has released a sample of the new KISAKI PROJECT single! (There's also a nice high resolution picture of the band's new look~) ⇒ 消影 (Shouei) sample
What do you guys think? I thought it was a bit unusual compared to what I was expecting, but I quite liked it! Don't forget, I'll be making a group order at the official web shop soon so you can buy the single!
For weeks now, KISAKI and SATSUKI (and too many support musicians to mention) have been in and out of the studio, recording for KISAKI PROJECT. However, they recorded their upcoming single pretty early on, so I had no idea just what they've been recording! Today, KISAKI finally gave a clear summary of what they've been doing:
KISAKI PROJECT has recorded 5 songs so far—3 of which are new and 2 of which are rearranged and rerecorded versions of old songs (one of those old songs is Garasu no ALBUM, I think). In addition, KISAKI says that the unit will recorded 1 more song before their first live in November, for a total of 6 songs.
If we remove the upcoming single (which is 1 song only) from the total of 6, that leaves 5 songs that have yet to be released. So I'm really hoping for a mini-album sometime in the future! But what about you, what do you think KISAKI will do with these songs?
(And by the way, I'll start a group order for KISAKI PROJECT's new single soon, so don't worry~)
Hey guys! As you know, KISAKI hoped to reach 5,000 followers by August 31st, and I announced a contest to help him reach that goal. Well, he did—he currently has 5,034 followers—so the contest is over. But I thought you guys should know that it was a resounding success!
Around 20~30 people followed KISAKI directly because of the contest, but many more followed him because of the fan-promotion that it spawned. In the days before the contest, KISAKI gained around 20 followers a day—but less than 24 hours after the contest was announced, KISAKI had gained over 100!!! And it only took two days after that to reach 5,000. I'd say that's damn successful!
So, thanks to everyone who participated in the contest and even more thanks to everyone who spread the word about KISAKI's goal. (Thanks to our Spanish-speaking friends in particular!) Whether he realizes it or not, KISAKI has us overseas fans to thank for that final push—I'm super proud of that.
These are the people that followed KISAKI (@KISAKI_LIN) and are eligible to receive a WE LOVE UNDER CODE sticker (I'll be contacting you via DM soon): @Shinsoukyoku @hisaki_ayame @cheriebunny @kairigiu @EternalParadox @NEGA_FC_Col @VaLDecadence @holstering @29403622405 @Amentia_Red
Two people manged to get over five followers for KISAKI, so they're eligible to receive a WE LOVE UNDER CODE poster (will contact you via DM soon): @DemoHeartless @VaLDecadence
And finally, these Spanish-speaking fan twitters (and the people who run them) really helped spread the word. Please follow these guys if they're relevant to your interests: @NEGA_Mexico @NEGA_FC_Col @MegaromaniaMex @VersaillesMexST (double thanks for promoting outside your fandom!)
KISAKI currently has 4,795 followers on twitter, but he has a goal of reaching 5,000 by August 31st—a week from today! If he reaches his goal, he'll plan a special event; but if not, I'm sure it will shake his confidence. So, I've decided to help in the only way I know how—trying to bribe others to follow him |D!
I'm offering two types of prizes, both completely free and out of my pocket.
First, I'm offering free WE LOVE UNDER CODE stickers. I'll give these away to anyone who follows KISAKI on twitter and notifies me. Second, I'm offering a free WE LOVE UNDER CODE poster (the same one I posted about here) to anyone who gets five other people to follow KISAKI. In specific terms:
Winners will be announced at the end of the month, and prizes will be shipped out soon after.
Please help out with this, even if you're not interested in the prizes. His goal of 5,000 by August 31st is doable, but it's also possible that he could narrowly miss it. So let's help him out and show him WE LOVE UNDER CODE PRODUCTION!
KISAKI PROJECT feat.砂月 (Satsuki) has already announced their first release. It's a single called 消影 (Shouei), and will be released on 2011-11-01. Unfortunately, the single is mail-order-only, so the only place you can buy it is through the official web shop.
Although the tracklist hasn't been confirmed, chariots' mail-order-limited single was the same price and included only one track, so I assume this will be the same.
KISAKI was sort of joking when he tweeted this, but I think he'll hold to it: KISAKI said yesterday that if he reaches 5,000 followers in July, he'll organize a oneman live for Lin. Furthermore, RIKU added that he'll try to negotiate for a free oneman if KISAKI reaches that goal. KISAKI is currently at 3,567 followers, so spread the word! ⇒ Follow @KISAKI_LIN
(KISAKI was definitely joking with this one, but he also tweeted that if he reaches 10,000 followers, he'll organize a twoman with Moran and take a vacation with Moran's Hitomi/Versailles' KAMIJO~ Hahaha)
This might be a good time to mention @We_love_UCP, the community twitter, for those who don't know of it.
So they had their first revival live with Ayano! So I found some of the images! (I've been curious to see what Ayano is looking like now!) I'm just putting these up so they are all in one place and people don't have to blog trawl on the ever down Ameba >>
Kisaki's ever tiny images first XD!!
Giru and Rame's better Quality ones!!
Then.....we have this gem in size and quality courtesy of Shun!
Shun and Giru look so happy XD!! <3 What do you guys think~? I personally think this is most likely my favourite line up Kisaki and Kansai Kizoku have ever had ^__^! But it also makes me wish they would just make it as a real band XD! Because it would have 4 members I loved in their old band! (I'm a big Arc and Vidoll fan and they are my favourite two members of each XD!) It's also great to see Ayano after so long too~
Earlier today KISAKI gave a little hint that 妃&関西貴族 (Kisaki & Kansai Kizoku) might return, and now the announcement is official: 妃&関西貴族 will make an appearance at both UNDER CODE PRODUCTION 8TH ANNIVERSARY「DYNAMITE EXPLOSION」 3/6 and 3/10 lives with slight changes in the cast.
3/6 Kichijoji CLUB SEATA Vo. Rame (Vidoll) Gu. Ayano (ex-Vidoll) Gu. Giru (Vidoll) Ba. KISAKI (Rin) Dr. Shun (Arc)
3/10 Osaka BIG CAT Vo. Rame (Vidoll) Gu. Yuki (Arc) Gu. Toshiya (Arc) Ba. KISAKI (Rin) Dr. Shun (Arc)
Excited? I AM! 妃&関西貴族 is my secret passion. : D And they sure seem to do alot of collaboration with Arc. Too bad KO-JI couldn't attend.
So Kisaki thought it's a good idea to forget to mention one member. 総長 (Souchou) of 水風船 (Mizufuusen) will attend at both lives as a counter partner of Rame. THIS IS EVEN COOLER!
Hello~ (＾▽＾)/ I commented about this before but... I think it actually makes sense to make a whole post as well, so nobody will miss this~
Rame (Vidoll) put some nice news into his ameba! Kisaki and him will be guests at Cures online tv program on the first of march. (remember, that was also the day some info about aka will be revealed, so maybe this has something to do with it?)
It will stream from 19:00-19.45 japanese time.. and I think you can watch it here----->
Today KISAKI revealed the lineup of 妃&地下線オールスターズ (Kisaki & Chikasen ALL STARS), the special band that's set to appear at UNDER CODE's new year countdown event. (By the way, I think they were originally announced as the countdown band, but it seems Nega's doing that now.)
Sort of a weird lineup, huh? Arc members are a given in any KISAKI session band, but for some reason I don't imagine Sui leading a group like that! Anyway, the members have been in the studio recording a backing track to their live song. Maybe that means they'll release it some day~ What do you think?
By the way, anyone else going through finals at school? Terrrrrible time ;(
I just opened the official KISAKI fanlisting! So go ahead and join if you're a fan of KISAKI, his bands, or his works. (I think there was previously another fanlisting that closed, so feel free to join this new one if you were a member of the old!)
Surely you all remember KISAKI 復活記念特別番組 MONOLOGUE (KISAKI Fukkatsu Kinen Tokubetsubangumi MONOLOGUE), the KISAKI memorial program that aired online beginning in May. Well, it looks like it's officially been taken off the air, as of June 20th. However! The program is getting a limited DVD release through the official web shop!
The program footage itself should be unchanged, but the DVD release will have a few special qualities to make it worthwhile: it will come in a tall case with original artwork on the jacket; it will include a one-of-a-kind, signed KISAKI cheki; and it will include a CD with a message plus instrumental versions of songs.
The DVD costs 1,575 yen and will be officially released on 2010-07-01 through the official web shop. As usual, this is a limited item that won't be re-released, so buy it now if you're interested!
KISAKI - MONOLOGUE 2010-07-01; 1,575 yen; Memorial DVD+CD; MON-01; Complete limited press
※ includes signed KISAKI cheki
※ includes bonus comment + instrumental CD
DVD 01. MONOLOGUE CD 01. (Comment)
CD 02. (Unannounced instrumental(s))
Kisaki is having the last meal of his hospital stay and getting discharged tonight~~ He's promised the doctor that he'll report to the hospital regularly so he doesn't have to live there anymore. And...because living at the hospital is no fun, he's going to take care of his body even while working hard. Yay~
**Unrelated but...his hospital food looks better than any hospital food I've ever seen!
KISAKI was discharged today from the hospital, and so he will be appearing at the 2010-06-18 live (should be about to start!).
: Actually he hasn't really been discharged from the hospital yet... >.> The doctor in charge of his case gave him permission to go out for a bit.
You would think being discharged means he's better, but he admitted in his blog that he hadn't eaten for the three days he was in the hospital, and he definitely won't be getting any rest with a live to play at. So it's not time to stop worrying yet. Hopefully he'll get through the live without incident and actually take some time to recover.
Apparently, the official web shop found a few stray copies of some KISAKI books: seven copies of 喪 失 ~Optic in Vain~ (Soushitsu ~Optic in Vain~), KISAKI's last photobook + PV DVD (5,250 yen) and four copies of 地下線神言基地 -EPISODE:1- (Chikasen Shingenkichi -EPISODE:1-), KISAKI's blog collection + photobook (3,675 yen).
So of course they're selling the books, but with the special addition of KISAKI's signature. And not only that, but if ordered before 2010-06-02, you'll be able to take a twoshot cheki with KISAKI at the 2010-06-06 live! As you can tell, this is super limited, so order now if you want them!
Will any of you be splurging on signed books? I've personally always wanted the Optic in Vain photobook~
Just a few updates on the KISAKI memorial program MONOLOGUE, which I posted about here. First, the YouTube version has been replaced and now has working sound. However, the new version is not as high quality. Second, the Bands@id version stream is now working. And finally, INDIVISUAL has posted it. The INDIVISUAL version does not yet have English subtitles, but they are coming soon. I'll update again when they're up.
So yeah, pick your venue and enjoy! The 凛 -the end of corruption world- (Lin) samples are really good, now that they're not ruined by corrupted audio. Oh, and I saved the HQ version before it was pulled from YouTube, so maybe I'll combine that with the correct sound and upload that in the future. What do you guys think :D?
It's May 1st in Japan, so the “KISAKI come-back commemoration special” MONOLOGUE has been released. It's a special video that will be airing through Bands@id, YouTube, the UCP official site, KISAKI's MySpace, and INDIVISUAL. So far, it's only been uploaded at Bands@id and UCP's YouTube account.
For Bands@id, you'll need an account, and the stream doesn't seem to be working correctly. The YouTube version is working correctly, but the sound is corrupted and doesn't synch. Hopefully these errors will be corrected soon. And INDIVISUAL is supposed to upload a translated version, so be sure to check for that soon as well!
And here's a special bonus: the video has clips of 凛 -the end of corruption world- (Lin) songs, including a clip of their As If Forever Exists. PV!! Sounds like their debut single will be pretty cool, and it's pretty ballsy of them to release a ballad for their first song!
And a small note: in previous cases, I've just used the tag “website” for online events such as Phantasmagoria's twitter event the online stream of their live. However, I only did this because I thought they would be one off deals. Because of MONOLOGUE, I'm making a “web event” tag; please use it on any future posts, if UCP continues to be generous and do these things!
① 凛 -the end of corruption world- (Lin) will hold a special event at TOWER RECORDS to commemorate the release of their first single. Those who reserve the single in store (phone orders and online orders aren't accepted) will receive a ticket to the event, which includes a mini-live and a handshake session. The event will take place on 2010-06-17 at TOWER RECORDS 渋谷 (Shibuya) STAGE ONE.
② 凛 -the end of corruption world- (Lin) will also be participating in an event sponsored by INDIVISUAL (the people who streamed Phantasmagoria's last live). The event, INDIVISUAL DAY, will take place on 2010-06-15 at SHIBUYA-AX. (Among others, VIDOLL will be there as well!)
③ The OFFICIAL WEB SHOP has updated with 凛 -the end of corruption world- (Lin) single As If Forever Exists.. The privilege for purchasing any type is a signed cheki from the member of your choice, to be sent out on 2010-06-15.
④ E'm ~grief~ is planning a new release! They haven't announced what kind or when it will be released, but details should be announced soon.

⑥ UNDER CODE still hasn't officially revealed the tracklists for Arc's latest single, but it's actually out now so... Details below, for completion's sake.
⑦ Similarly, UNDER CODE just got around to releasing the covers for the latest シンディケイト (CINDYKATE) single, even though you could see them at Brand X for a while now. Anyway, check out the A type and the B type, both of which feature an alien!
⑧ KISAKI's blog now has an updated header to reflect his new look. Seriously Mr. Designer, it sucks balls. Please do better next time.

① KISAKI and UNDER CODE PRODUCTION are sponsoring the live area side of this year's STRAIGHT LIFE event on 2010-06-06. The event is basically a massive tattoo convention featuring over forty tattoo shops, pole dancers, an S&M show, a DJ, and live bands. As I said, KISAKI is producing the live side, and he's chosen 凛 -the end of corruption world- (Lin) and BALZAC to headline. Additionally, VAGERKE, 平成維新 (HEISEI ISHIN), 宇宙戦隊NOIZ (Uchuu Sentai NOIZ), The ROMEO, In The Enz, and WHITEBLACK will also appear.
② 凛 -the end of corruption world- (Lin) will also be appearing at Kaya's ソドムの晩餐 第一夜 (SODOM no Bansan Daiichi Yoru) event on 2010-07-03 at O-EAST. The cool thing about this event is that La'Mule will also be holding a one-night revival! (Which is totally relevant since La'Mule was signed to Soleil, which was the precursor of Matina.)
③ VISUNAVI will be kicking off a new event series, SUMMER MASQUERADE 2010, in Kansai. And, well, you can't say Kansai without saying UNDER CODE PRODUCTION, so the live will fittingly be UCP supported. The specific show is called SUMMER MASQUERADE 2010 ~Phantasmagoria MEMORIAL TRIBUTE NIGHT~ and will take place at 梅田 (Umeda) SHANGRILA on 2010-08-31 (as if any other date was possible!). 凛 -the end of corruption world- (Lin) will be performing and カレン (KALEN) will hold a one-night revival. The rest of the lineup hasn't been revealed yet.
④ Eternal and CLIMAX ENTERPRISE are having a one-day revival and co-sponsoring a crazy event. (How is this relevant? Eternal was a sub-label of Matina and CLIMAX ENTERPRISE was the next version of Eternal.) The event is called ETERNALISM†CLIMAXISM and will take place on 2010-08-08 at 目黒鹿鳴館 (Meguro Rock Maykan). 弥生 (Yayoi; president of Eternal), E'm ~grief~, and ex-members of Syndrome, Earl Grey, and Kilah will appear, along with many, many others (I've only mentioned the ones relevant to UCP/Matina). Additionally, guests are allowed to exit and re-enter one time (which is rare), a secret guest will appear, a spur-of-the-moment guest will appear, and a large session featuring everyone will be held at the end of the show. Pretty freaking awesome!
⑤ Edit: Forgot this one, which was the whole reason I made this post! Anyway, Shinobu (vocalist of the perpetually inactive band Zephyr) is getting married! And since he and KISAKI are such good friends (Zephyr was once a Matina band and their comeback mini-album was to be released through UCP), he's holding a special live event to celebrate. The event is called Shinobu HAPPY WEDDING LIVE PARTY ~みんなに幸せおすそ分け・リターンズ~ (~Minna ni Shiawase Osusowake ・ RETURNS~) and will be held on 2010-05-02 at ESAKA MUSE. This basically means a bunch of Matina bands are holding one-day revivals (I love this trend!): Lavender, Zephyr, MIRAGE, DAS:VASSER, Eze:quL, ZXS, vellaDonna, Lagna, DERAIL, オルゴール (ORGEL), Distray, and a large session of random members called Shinobu&Friends. Obviously, not all of these bands will have complete lineups (ex. RUIZA definitely isn't showing up for Distray), but it's still super awesome. I wish UNDER CODE would film and release these Matina lives!
I think it wasn't posted here yet and if yes, please let me know.
There's been a notice on the UCP site that KISAKI's official site will be "coming soon". Actually, it's already HERE!
I found it while I was checking the Lin announcement at INDIVISUAL.
The site contains the whole history of KISAKI's career and all the lives he's done so far. It has also Matina section with pictures of Matina bands! It's pretty cool, I think. And just like with UCP OHP, KISAKI's can be switched to English too. Though I don't think it'll work out.
March will mark the 7th anniversary of UNDER CODE PRODUCTION's formation. It's a huge milestone for the label, especially because that means it has officially outlasted Matina! To celebrate the anniversary, the label is making some very rare releases available via the OFFICIAL WEB SHOP, for a very limited time only!
① First, they're releasing official bootleg live DVDs of several session bands. Since they're bootlegs, the camera quality isn't amazing, but there will never be another chance to see these bands again! The DVDs range in price from 2,000 yen to 2,940 yen, so I'm assuming some are longer than others. Get them now if you want them!
② Second, the label's releasing a brand new lucky bag! Like the new year lucky bag, this one will contain 25,000 to 30,000 yen's worth of goods for only 3,675 yen. However, this one is even more special. Each set will contain a designed tote bag, the aforementioned goods, and a special “trading” DVD! Each DVD contains a comment and rehearsal footage (1 song) from one band. There are seven DVDs in total, and the one you get is completely random. However, anyone who buys three sets of lucky bags will receive all seven DVDs automatically! Reservations begin March 1st, and the bag will be sent out on April 10th. Quantities are extremely limited, so order now!

I honestly wish I could get it all! The bootleg DVDs especially. I know UNDER CODE actually films a lot of its lives, so it's like getting a peek inside their secret archives. I'll definitely be getting the Tsumidan ones at least. And as for the lucky bag, well, it's always a great deal, and this one has the added bonus of the special DVDs. I wonder if I'll actually be able to get three... Must get that Dali DVD!
I don't remember seeing any official announcement about this here or on the OHP (if yes, I'm blind), but I thought that I should post about it because I personally wasn't aware of this until recently (and I follow UCP quite closely. Anyway...). Also, it might be an "old news" for some persons.
It's quite simple. Both KISAKI and UNDER CODE have an official MySpace!
This is a recap post since I've been somewhat busy throughout the day.
① KISAKI announced that Phantasmagoria's limited revival would end on 2010-04-05. He also announced he is ending his retirement and will form a new band. Read this post for more information.
② Phantasmagoria's online event was today. You can read details of the event here. It might still be going on as you read this post, so check the twitter and Facebook to see.
③ I watched the online event for almost 9 hours... And I'm only stopping now because I'm so tired. During the event, I logged some major events here. Also, a bunch of members and I chatted live in a chat room. So if you're just turning in, drop by the room and maybe someone will still be there!
④ Thanks to everyone who chilled in the chat room with me. It was really awesome, and you guys are awesome. And thanks to everyone who commented on the entry about the online event—over 50 comments, which is insane! I really love this community! Hopefully I'll be able to pay you guys back with some cool uploads or something, haha~
I've been pretty lazy, so most of this “news” is somewhat old.
① KISAKI: KISAKI's blog header has been updated. Also, KISAKI will appear as a special guest at Seven's upcoming event, ヴィジュアル大フィーバー (VISUAL Dai FEVER), at C.C.Lemon HALL on 2009-10-03.
② SIVA: SIVA is officially over, as of 2009-07-25! The DVD of their last live (a privilege of buying their best album through the UNDER CODE NET SHOP) has been completed.
③ 平成維新: Unless I'm misinterpreting, 平成維新 (HEISEI ISHIN) has been doing photography for the cover of the next issue of Cure! It seems that the band has new costumes as well (here's a preview).
④ Megaromania: It was mentioned that those who attended Megaromania's events on 2009-07-20, 2009-07-21, and 2009-07-22 would receive special presents. The presents were memorial postcards, which can be seen here.
⑤ Megaromania: To celebrate their first full album, Megaromania will be sponsoring two events in November. Mythlogical of Hallucination -First Day- will be held on 2009-11-08 at 心斎橋SOMA (Shinsaibashi SOMA), and those who attend will receive a special DVD. Mythlogical of Delusion -Second Day- will be held on 2009-11-13 at 池袋CYBER (Ikebukuro CYBER), and those who attend will receive a special CD.
⑥ Arc, Megaromania: Arc and Megaromania will sponsor a series of coupling events, Sympathize with One's Voice, on 2009-10-12, 2009-10-23, and 2009-10-24.
⑦ UNDER CODE: A new volume of the old UNDER CODE PRODUCTION live event series act unlawfully has been announced. act unlawfully Vol:20 will be held on 2009-09-29 at 高田馬場CLUB PHASE (Takadanobaba CLUB PHASE), and will feature chariots, ClearVeil, and others.
⑧ 平成維新: 平成維新 (HEISEI ISHIN) will take part in a coupling tour with n'DooL and お遊戯ゎが魔々団×【PaRADEiS】 (Oyuugi Wagamamadan ×【PaRADEiS】). The Revolutionary Supper ~革命の晩餐会~ (The Revolutionary Supper ~Kakumei no Bansankai~) will take place on 2009-10-03 at OSAKA MUSE, 2009-10-16 at HOLIDAY NAGOYA, and 2009-10-17 at 渋谷RUIDO K2 (Shibuya RUIDO K2).
⑨ chariots, ネガ: chariots and ネガ (NEGA) will take part in a two-day twoman live. UNDER showcase will take place on 2009-10-18 at 渋谷RUIDO K2 (Shibuya RUIDO K2) and on 2009-11-03 at OSAKA MUSE.
⑩ UNDER CODE: UNDER CODE's official store has changed addresses and been updated. The store is know being called UNDER CODE PRODUCTION OFFICIAL WEB SHOP (not a huge change) and can now be found at the address http://under-code.shop-pro.jp/. The new shop looks much cleaner and has more detailed information about each release. It also includes goods sections for many of the artists, so you can now buy photosets of most of the bands.
Features 22 full colour pages of Phantasmagoria and Kisaki throughout their various costume changes. Bonus back page with pictures of the band in the Harajuku store. Mint condition with only very very slight wear at the corners, no bends, folds, or scratches. Picked up christmas 2007 at the store with other mago goods. A must have for any Kisaki fan!
£15 OBO. Shipped from the UK. I accept Paypal from international buyers (buyer responsible for fee) and bank transfer within the UK.
① KISAKI will be composing a song, ダークネス (DARKNESS), for the C type of Seven's first single, キラーチューン (KILLER TUNE). Seven is the latest random-ass project by ミチル (MICHIRU), owner of L∞p・Ash RECORDS, and is, for now, a collaboration with 真矢 (Shinya) of LUNA SEA.
② The covers of Megaromania's upcoming singles were put up at the UNDER CODE OHP a few days ago. You can view the covers here: evil, holy, and deus. Also, their pictures at the UNDER CODE OHP have been updated. Lastly, Megaromania's blog header has been updated as well.
③ ClearVeil's pictures have been updated at the UNDER CODE OHP. (Previously, only the group photo in the flash header had been updated.) You can see those here.
④ KISAKI announced in his blog a few days ago that a sampler CD of ネガ's (NEGA) album will be distributed at a few UNDER CODE lives.
⑤ Information about some UNDER CODE NET SHOP privileges has been put up. Kneuklid Romance's singles: three track karaoke CD; Megaromania's singles: digest DVD of their session event on 2009-06-01; SIVA's album: message + three tracks from their last live (thought I posted that one before, but can't find it).
⑥ UNDER GROUND MUSIC's ranking was updated a few days ago... It's basically the same, except that I noticed Dali's "herbit" is now on there, lol ("herbit" is the site's horrible misspelling of a habit).
⑦ Oh yeah, Kneuklid Romance's event sold out! Pretty sweet.
⑧ Oh yeah×2, KISAKI said a few days ago that there would be some sort of surprise regarding UNDER CODE lives. Wonder what it is!
Also, how weird is it that there were like NO releases from UNDER CODE this month?!
Today in his blog, a notice explained that on Monday, KISAKI was rushed to the hospital after his health rapidly deteriorated. Upon examination, he was diagnosed with a severe case of Ulcerative Duodenitis (Duodenitis is basically inflammation and irritation of the wall of the first part of the small intestine, and this type has ulcers involved). He will be hospitalized at least three weeks, and at the moment he is in the ICU under doctor’s orders of complete bed rest.
KISAKI has been hospitalized after a checkup, due to a problem in his duodenum (a section of the small intestine). He's currently in the ICU and can't leave the hospital for at least three weeks.
(I'm confident that this post is correct, but as I used a translator service, there's a chance that some detail is incorrect.)
Let's wish KISAKI lots of luck and hope that he heals quickly and without problem. I know he's had plenty of medical problems in the past, so I hope that he gets over these quickly. Get well soon KISAKI!
E'm~grief~, currently without a bassist, has announced that KISAKI is no longer providing support bass on their releases. In his stead, the lead guitarist, programmer, and band leader Yuuze will now be doing all of the bass on future releases. Whether or not E'm~grief~ will acquire a bassist in the near future is unknown.
This sounds pretty decent, as Yuuze was previously Juka's live support bassist. I'm confident UCP's friendly gothic band will produce wonderful music in the future.
① This actually isn't that new, I just forgot to post about it. KISAKI announced another memorial release, this time his last solo photobook. It will contain his "last message" along with 40 pages of photography (no word on whether or not it's all new; probably not). The book will come with a DVD featuring the PV for 勿忘草 (Wasurenagusa) (which was his first single as a truely solo artist), as well as an application to receive a ticket to a "KISAKI PRESENTS SECRET PARTY" that is to be held in the future. Whatever that means. Sales of the book are limited to live venues on August 30th, but the price is undecided at this time. This is a limited release; after supplies are sold out, there will be no more pressings.
KISAKI - 喪 失 ~Optic in Vain~ (Sou Shitsu ~Optic in Vain~) 2008-08-30; Photobook + DVD; Limited pressings Photobook + DVD 01. 勿忘草 (Wasurenagusa) PV
① It has been announced through Brand X and VISUNAVI that there will be a new solo release from KISAKI. The CD+DVD two disc set features no new material (that I am aware of) except for more footage from the 2004 KISAKI PROJECT live in France. The special edition release comes with a photo booklet. Supposedly the release is being distributed worldwide, with only a certain number being available for purchase in Japan. Of course, specific details are very sparse (can anyone figure out the distribution label by the product number?). Reservations through the UNDER CODE OHP will begin on the 29th and will come with a special privilege.
② VIDOLL's 2007 two disc best album is being re-released. The second press is to feature a new jacket and the addition of one old song.
③ VAGERKE will release a two disc best album featuring songs from all of their releases with the addition of one new track. The price is actually pretty good for a two disc album.

SPECIAL CD 「Past New Phase」-Phantasmagoria Tribute Album DELUX EDITION- 2008.8.20～発送開始!!
Basically, a new live only CD limited to 1,500 copies with a new song. And a documentery + CD to commemorate the one day revival. Also a second pressing of the tribute album. With 2 covers by chariots.
I'm sorry for my lack of formatting, but I'm far too tired to make this post as beautiful as the lovely usually does.
① As of May 8th, select UNDER CODE PRODUCTION music is available for purchase of iTunes. It's the first time that UCP has offered digital downloads and I highly recommend purchasing something if you are at all interested; strong support will probably encourage KISAKI to make more available, and it's a LOT cheaper and easier (the iTunes store takes credit cards as well as PayPal) than important CD's or even buying them in Japan. To make the deal a little sweeter, the offerings are iTunes Plus releases, which means that they are basically free of DRM and higher in quality without costing more than normal releases. It's pretty cool, very much worth the small price. Here's the info of what is currently available:
KISAKI PROJECT feat. JUI - Untitled Single 2008-05-08; 1.98 dollars; Digital Single 01. Glass No Album 02. Michi-Shirube Phantasmagoria - Untitled EP 2008-05-08; 2.97 dollars; Digital EP 01. Hikari Ni Furu Ame 02. Gensoukyoku - Eternal Silence - 03. ...Lost In Thought V.A. - UNDER CODE PRODUCTION SPECIAL COMPILATION ALBUM VOL:1 2008-05-08; 4.95 dollars; Digital Omnibus EP 01. Nega / Soul Cry 02. Arc / Calculation Megami 03. Chariots / Cold Pray 04. Siva / Brave 05. Dali / Hoshikuzu
Edit: reminded me that I should specify this: the downloads are not limited to iTunes Japan or anything like that, they are readily available for purchase through the normal iTunes store. The prices are in dollars, there is no weird process to go through, just purchase the songs like you would any English artist. (You can use the links I provided to make it even easier!)
① KISAKI has announced one more memorial release, this time a solo CD (it does feature ジュイ (Jui) on vocals, but it is not a KISAKI PROJECT release). It's a single with three new tracks and one remastered track (weirdly enough, the original version of the remastered track was only released a few days ago). I personally think it's a much better idea than some of the other memorial stuff being released. Anyways, info ahoy:
KISAKI -FINAL SOLO WORKS- - memory of tears ~忘却の落陽に映る情景~ (~Boukyaku no Rakuyou ni Utsuru Joukei~) 2007-10-31; 1,995 yen; Limited 10,000; UCCD-150 01. 勿忘草 (Wasurenagusa) 02. memory of tears ~忘却の落陽に映る情景~ (~Boukyaku no Rakuyou ni Utsuru Joukei~) 03. fragments voice (Remastered) 04. farewell
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.
tried to post this, but her account isn't working right now. So here's her post:
Just some quick Kisaki news since that's obviously my specialty, haha.
① It's confirmed that fuuin means kaisan. Phantasmagoria won't be coming back, it seems... the news comes from May's Holiday monthly schedule. I plan on translating the messages from each band member on the label to Kisaki in the near future.
② Furthermore, Kisaki is not quitting his position as president and producer of UNDER CODE PRODUCTION. This news also comes from the Holiday monthly schedule.
Some good and some bad. Now to wait for July.
As an afterthought, since this is news, some of you may have noticed that updates have been coming few and far between on my Phantasmagoria fansite. I posted on there about this, and since I haven't said anything lately on here and the member count has climbed, I figure I could ask again...
If any of you want to help me with translations, I really REALLY need the help. I don't want it to sound bigheaded but I need someone as good as or better than me in Japanese because I really need help with translation sometimes! If you have knowledge of HISKAREA/Mar'derayla, etc, that would be really helpful, too.
① It's safe to say that most of us have been expecting new UNDER CODE CDs for quite some time. So, it's not very surprising that a slew of upcoming releases have been announced today. Arc, hurts, KISAKI PROJECT (surprise!), ネガ (Nega), and Pashya have all announced very cool things, including some second presses (apparently the first presses have sold extremely well; good job guys!). It's a bit weird that Siva hasn't announced anything, but I'm sure we'll hear from them soon.
② Arc, hurts, and ネガ (Nega) all have new [very cool] outfits and photoshoots. It's easy to see that UNDER CODE is putting more money into that region. Last but not least, ネガ (Nega) and Dali (!) have brand new logos. Very nice. See the cuts for release information, and check out the new costumes at UNDER CODE's OHP.

Get your wallets ready! This summer is going to be fuuun. As usual, corrections are welcomed.
im pretty sure this is allowed here..? i ripped the kisaki project video called "the last show", and decided to upload it ^^ this show: http://www.ohkey.jp/vstation/the_last_show/
the other day i was asked to rip the new vidoll one and share it, so i thought i would also share the kisaki project one..altogether the files equal about 1.84 gb, and are ripped and uploaded into about 350 mb chunks. im currently uploading them to megaupload (since the ul limit is over 400) but if there is another server that someone might need it uploaded on (ie - if someone cant use mu), then please tell me right away what server you want me to ul it to. the offer to ul it on something other than mu is for a limited time..so hurry XD and im sorry but once the mu links dont work, i wont be reuploading any of them again since its too much work. youll have to ask someone/somewhere else :x anyways, please comment if you take & enjoy!
Ok, I just had to delete the last post; it was already getting out of hand. Sorry about that. Here is a direct translation of KISAKI's situation. Please note that KISAKI has NOT been arrested, he has only been accused. And please, let's keep the comments fair. This post has potential to turn ugly, and I want to make sure it doesn't.
Ok, I've gotten way behind on the release news (these like, stealth releases keep getting announced, so there's A LOT). So, here's kind of a quick overview:

OK. There seems to be a flood of news lately, and I just can't keep up! (I know, I know, I'm horrible) Sorry!

Hello, everyone. I'm.. sort of new here, and wasn't quite sure if requesting mp3s were allowed here or not, but..
Does anyone have the song called "Dohyou" (I think it's called.. Not quite so certain. o__O;;) by Kisaki Project (again, not sure)??? I've been wanting the whole entire song for my iPod for a long time, ever since I got to hear it on a loop at the UNDER-CODE enter page. If someone could provide me with it, I would be very very grateful. Sorry, I bring no bribes.. ;;;
Yep, even more news from the good people over at UNDER CODE! KISAKI has announced the cast for the fourth book of the ARISTIC in BLACK series. For those of you that have somehow forgotten, ARTISTIC in BLACK is a series of coupling photobooks which will be released at the rate of one per month, for twelve months. Anyways, it seems that this time, KISAKI is teaming up with a very popular oshare band! Speaking of photobooks, Himitsu Kessha Codomo A has announced that they will finally release one of their own! They've also announced a--get ready for this--PV DVD, along with a new maxi-single! Codmo lovers rejoice! They've been releasing a lot lately, but who can complain? Here's the info:
[Photobook] 「ARTISTIC in BLACK 4」 (2006/04/25) Features: KISAKI × Shoujo-Loliita-23Ku
[Photobook] 「CODOMO STYLE~Menomae no Bokuha Dare Desuka?~」 (2006/06/25) Features: Thirty Codomo A photos
[CD] 「Jinsei GAME」 (2006/07/19) Features: Three new tracks
By now, almost everyone knows about KISAKI's sudden love of photobooks, so it should come as no surprise that he's announced another one. However, the surprise this time is that he's announced to do a photobook with Kalen! Like all the other photobooks, this one will have 30 color pages. This photobook will be unique though; it will come with a free CD featuring 10 live Kalen songs. Because it basically comes with a full album, this photobook will cost a little more than others.
[Photobook] 「ARTISTIC in BLACK 1」 (2006/01/25) Features: KISAKI × VAGERKE Bonus: 01 Track CD
[Photobook] 「ARTISTIC in BLACK 2」 (2006/02/25) Features: KISAKI × Tenten (KuRt)
[Photobook] 「ARTISTIC in BLACK 3」 (2006/03/25) Features: KISAKI × Makoto (Doremidan)
[Photobook] 「emotional graduation」 (2006/04/25) Features: KISAKI × Kalen Bonus: 10 Track live CD
Yes, Kioku has moved again xD This time, it's at it's probably permanent home of Decieved Doll... NB. I'm going to embarass my friend by saying that it was she who registered the domain, and she who spelt "deceived" wrong xD
UNDER CODE News → As you all know, 2005 has been a great year for UNDER CODE PRODUCTION (and a horrible year for our wallets). Well, it looks as if 2006 will be an even better year for UNDER CODE, and several releases have already been announced. Please check out the list, as all of UC's artists have several releases planned (Some of which haven't been announced until today). (To clarify, 12012, 秘密結社コドモA, カレン, KISAKI, 音鬼, -Phantasmagoria-, and ヴィドール are all on this list)
12012 has two albums planned, both of which will be released on February 01st. The first of these is a best album called not obtain+1, and will contain 10 tracks. One track will be a completely new song, while the rest of the tracks will be rare-ish songs from their live only CDs and various omnibus CDs. The second album will be called PLAY DOLLs, and will contain 10 completely new songs. There will be two versions--A type and B type (KISAKI's such a sneaky bastard isn't he!). The A type will contain a PV for a song from the album called "icy~cold city~." The B type of the album will come with a CD with one more new track. More information as it comes.
秘密結社コドモA (Himitsu Kessha Codomo A) will be releasing three mini-albums, along with a bonus CD that can be obtained when you buy all three. The first album will be called 再放送+予告盤 (Saihousou+Yokokuban) and will contain five tracks. It will be released on December 07th. The second and third album will both be released on January 25th of next year, and will contain five new songs each. Their titles will be オトコノ個 (Otokonoko) and オンナノ故 (Onnanoyue). Buying all three mini-albums will entitle you to a special present of some sort, which hasn't been decided on yet.
カレン (Karen) has the most release planned at this point. Later this year, on December 14th they will release a DVD entitled mellow~創の旋律~ (mellow~Sou no Senritsu~). No other details about it are available yet. They will release three CDs in the first two months of 2006. The first will be a best album entitled primary song memorial~奏の旋律~ (primary song memorial~Sou no Senritsu), and will have a release date of January 18th. The second will also be a best best album, and it's title will be primary song memorial~想の旋律~ (primary song memorial~Sou no Senritsu~). It seems that カレン is playing word games with the titles of the albums and DVD, but someone who knows Japanese will have to figure out what they're trying to say. After releasing the two albums, they plan to give away a CD at live shows on four dates. Those dates are February 19th, 21st, 26th, and 27th. The CD will be entitled プラウド (Puraudo) and will most likely contain only one track.
KISAKI is next jump on the release-bandwagon, and seems to really have a love for photobooks. His first collection of photos comes out on October 19th of this year, and will be named a basement Melody 2.... It will include 30 full color photos (and 60 pages in total), and a free CD with one unspecified track (a new KISAKI PROJECT song perhaps?). Apparently, he already knows it's going to be a hit (the UNDER CODE site seems to suggest that demand for the book has been huge), and has already announced his second photobook, which will be called a basement Melody 3.... It will be released on December 15th of this year, and will come with a bonus DVD of the making of the photobook. (And no, as far as I know there has never been a a basement Melody 1...)
音鬼 (OTO-ONI) has only one CD planned this month, and it was released a few days ago. It's official release date is October 12th, and is entitled 哭 (Koku). It contains four new tracks. This is good news for 音鬼 fans, as they hadn't released anything in quite a while.
-Phantasmagoria- has several releases planned (which isn't surprising) and are taking advantage of all the forms of media available to them. First they're releasing a single on October 19th (the same day as KISAKI's first photobook) which will be called 未完成とギルト (Mikansei to Guilt). It will contain only two tracks, but will come in two versions; A type and B type. The A type single will include a bonus DVD with a "MEMORIAL LIVE CLIP" of their tour "TOUR#2「NEO ARK」." The B type will also include a bonus DVD, but this version will have a "MEMORIAL LIVE CLIP" of their tour "2nd concept TOUR「NEO ARK」." After that, Their PV DVDs must be selling really well, because they already have a third one planned! The new PV DVD will be named 幻影像III~for degradation crowd~ (GeneizouIII~for degradation crowd~). It will be released on December 14th, and will come with an eight page booklet. The DVD continues their tradition of releasing two PVs at a time; one will be for "NEVER REBELLION," and the other for "未完成とギルト" (Mikansei to Guilt). The very next day, on December 15th, they'll release their own photobook called 幻影グラフティー I (Genei Grafitti I). Like KISAKI's photobooks, this one will contain 30 pages of full color photos, and 60 pages in total. The number on the name seems to imply that -Phantasmagoria- anticipates making another photobook, so keep your eyes out for news of that as well.
ヴィドール (Vidoll) is last but certainly not least on this list. First they're planning to release a maxi-single, which has a street date of October 26th. It will have the strange title of Chocoripeyes, and will include only two tracks. Then ヴィドール will be joining KISAKI and -Phantasmagoria- and releasing their own photobook on December 15th. Like the other two photobooks coming out that day, it will contain 30 full color photos and 60 pages extra, but will also come with a free CD of some sort! The title of the photobook will be Back of 『AI』lids. Then will be the first UNDER CODE band to release a CD in 2006. On January 01st their new five track mini-album called Deathmate will be released. In keeping with the recent trend, it will come in to versions; A type and B type. Each type will sport a different jacket, as well as a different bonus DVD. The A type will include the PV for their recent single "シャットダウン," (Shutdown) and the B type will include the PV for their upcoming single "Chocoripeyes." When both versions of the mini-album are purchased, a special present DVD will be included, which will contain a making of clip of "シャットダウン" (Shutdown). According to the UNDER CODE site, the mini-album is being released in celebration of ヴィドール's upcoming one man tour "TOUR 2006-「Reload to living doll」."
Omnibus albums are also planned for release. First is SHOCK WAVE CD the SELECT, which is the next installment of the famous omnibus series. It will contain some of the best tracks of the series, and will features songs from 12012, カレン (Karen), -Phantasmagoria-, and ヴィドール (Vidoll). The omnibus will be released on October 25th. Then UNDER CODE will release the next installment of its omnibus series, "High Style Paradox." The new CD will be entitled High Style Paradox SPECIAL ~RARE TRACKS COLLECTIONS~. It will be released on November 09th, and will contain around fourteen to fifteen tracks total. The UNDER CODE website describes it as a second press of "High Style Paradox IV~re acceleration~" with a different jacket and "rare tracks" from KISAKI's favorite bands. So far ネガ (Nega) and Zephyr are the only non-UNDER CODE bands that are known to be on the CD, but expect more information on the actual tracklist soon.
ダリ and Pasyha haven't announced any upcoming releases yet. I suspect they'll announce something with their debut during UNDER CODE's Japan-wide tour, so keep an eye out for these guys!
Well that's it. This took me a looong time to write up, so I hope you at least scanned over it all! If you have anything to add or correct, please let me know! I'm sure I made mistakes (especially with CD names xD), so any help is appreciated. Also, if anyone could explain the word-play in the titles of カレン's new CDs, I'd be really greatful.
I'm looking for the Discography or at least line ups of the bands Kisaki was in. that would be line up and discography for:
Levia Laybial She≠de Garden (not the band which was in Matina, since this was another band, that was named after Kisaki's band.) De=prive Stella Maria Ruby La:Sadies Mirage Syndrome Kisaki Project + Kisaki & Kansai Kizoku Phantasmagoria
It shouldn't be a problem for me to find it since La:Sadies... but I can't find info about the other Bands T.T anyone can help?
