By the way, Seraphim previously pointed out that
AVANCHICK's new single uses their own UPC instead of the usual UPC for ROCKSTAR RECORDS. However, I've since confirmed that the release is still coming out through ROCKSTAR RECORDS. So I guess they haven't changed anything~
AVANCHICKcheki are being sold at Chaotic Harmony. The site also sold signed copies of Eternal, but they've already sold out ;(

The band's memorial best box, The End of Corruption World 2010-2015, has already shipped to those who purchased it via the official web shop! Turns out that it actually is a box, similar in size to KISAKI PROJECT's final confession. Here's a shot of the booklet, taken by SEPIA (@rojam_darwin):

Courtesy of KISAKI, here's a shot of the custom IC card case that was awarded to those who purchased the memorial box through fiveStars:
The LIN × SHOXX lucky bags finally shipped, about a week ago. It seems that the bands at least contain a comment DVD, and possibly a bootleg live DVD. Will have further details once my copy arrives.
LIN's first and last talk event and handshake session has changed venues. The event will be held on 2016-03-19 at Osaka (大阪) Ainsneus HALL [previously, it was to be held at Nipponbashi wktk THEATRE (日本橋wktkTHEATRE)]. It's also been announced that the event is limited to 60 attendees. SUI (LIN) and 我儿-garu- (
Paranoid≠circuS) will moderate the discussion. Tickets are on sale at the official web shop.
The official web shop supposedly added a bunch of rare cheki today. I don't pay attention to them so I can't say which ones are new, though ^^;

Morerevealed the tracklist to their upcoming mini-album, PARADIGMA.
Paranoid≠circuSreleased the tracklist for their upcoming mini-album, DREAM BOXX. It includes 4 old songs and 4 new songs―which is longer than a mini-album, so I wonder if some of the new ones are SE tracks...
PENTAGONhas released new goods through the GOEMON RECORDS official shop, available for order 2016-02-01 through 2016-02-05. (They appear to be sold out already, tho...!).
Se'ikspiaposted a trailer with some footage from their “replay” live (tho they unfortunately didn't use the live-recorded audio). It seems that the band hopes to play another live, but that's still undecided.
The event will take place on March 18. Until then, tickets will be available for sale at the band's official webshop, starting on January 17. Guitarist CERO will perform alongside

The band's first PV DVD will be sold at the live, and there's also something about tea and SNS, but I have no fucking clue what they're talking about. It also appears they'll be hand-selling tickets somewhere, but, again, idk.

The full lineup of masked idol group Kamen Joshi (仮面女子) will appear as a second special guest. The bands XENON,
Paranoid≠circuSwill 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-.

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.
