REALies will have lasted for 4 years, with no member changes, and with a definite growth compared to their start at UNDER CODE PRODUCTION. I'm quite proud of them for that. Good luck boys!

REALies dual costume exhibition
In celebration of their upcoming single, REALies will hold their costume exhibitions at two little HEARTS. locations from 2014-09-02 through 2014-09-08. Drama costumes will be at the Shinjuku location, while Irohauta costumes will be at the Sendai location.

By the way, it seems that this single was mixed by some dude named Tom (@tom106zany), who also mixed songs for SuG and D=OUT (ダウト) before...!
REALies double-A-side single
REALies has announced their new “2 lead” (double-A-side) single, HEARTS/CINEMA SYNDROME (HEARTS/シネマシンドローム). They've also revealed their two(!) new looks.

The new single will be released in three types: all will feature the two title tracks, plus a different third bonus track. The first two types will further feature a PV for one of the title tracks.

As for their two looks: IMO it's their best AND worst look yet! The colorful look seems to be for the CINEMA SYNDROME side, and it's super cool. The HEARTS look is rather plain, and too “let's go major” -smelling to me, but at least they wear it well ;).

Long-running visual band MoNoLith is disbanding this August, and have been doing special projects as part of their last tour. Today, they announced that they'll “redo” their twoman live vs CindyKate (シンディケイト), which was originally held in 2012... which means that CindyKate will hold a one day revival!!

Here's the latest mini-news roundup, featuring 12012, 2 Gatsu 22 Nichi, ARLEQUIN (アルルカン), chariots, E'm ~grief~, Megaromania, Oneness, REALies, and SIVA members.

  • After over 11 years of activity, 12012 will indefinitely pause activities after their 2014-12-12 event/oneman (details TBA). Their reason given is essentially “lack of direction”, but the members' full comments are available (in Japanese) here.
  • Oneness will hold a free oneman, KANSHA SAKURETSU (カンシャサクレツ), on 2014-04-06 at HOLIDAY NEXT NAGOYA to celebrate the #4 indies ORICON ranking of their latest single. The title strip from any type of the single (including the 2nd press) is required to receive a ticket.

  • As far as I can tell, Lilith's upcoming 3rd “EP” might be a single with the songs Galassia and Legacy. They will also hold a oneman in April. Details should be released soon.
  • ex-Megaromania drummer 邑詩-yushi- was supposed to appear at VAMPIRE ROSE's 2014-02-16 oneman at Kanazawa (金沢) van van V4. However, the live was cancelled and will be rescheduled at a later date (TBA), due to support members' inability to travel because of bad winter storms.
  • ARLEQUIN (アルルカン) international street team has translated the band's interview with ViSULOG. The translation is available in three parts (so far): part 1, part 2, part 3.
  • The lineup of ex-SIVA vocalist KAIRI (カイリ) session band Bakeneko (化け猫) has been revealed: 【V. KAIRI / G. ShinyA (ex-Signal) / G. Keisuke (圭介) (ex-gaNesha) / Dr. Majyu (摩珠) (ex-E'm ~grief~)】.
  • The lineup of Raychel BAND (れいちぇるバンド) on 2014-03-08 has been finalized: 【V. 樹-Itsuki- (SUZAKU) / G. Ao (碧) (ex-paradeis) / G. KAEDE (カヱデ) (ex-MEKAKUSI (メカクシ)) / B. Ray (ex-NEGA) / D. REIYA (ex-LIN)】

GOEMON RECORDS bands updates
Recent updates from GOEMON RECORDS and its bands:
  • REALies released live photos from their 2013-12-08 tour final. The photos are available in Japan via 7-ELEVEN, and online via AOO Store.
  • ARLEQUIN (アルルカン) held a hastily-decided experimental live—Jikkendai × MARMOT (実験台×モルモット) on 2014-01-12 at Shinjuku (新宿) RUIDO K4—in celebration of the release of the final press of the band's demonstration CD. The live encouraged more ferocious participation than usual, and the band members donned special doctor uniforms during heavy songs SynonyM and Zou ().
  • GOEMON RECORDS has re-released its 2014 lucky bag through its official web shop. The “remade” version includes 2 random GOEMON RECORDS badges, rather than the random band members' object that was in the original. (The new version still includes PV making DVDs, signed paper, and New Year postcard/photocard.)
  • REALies and ARLEQUIN will participate in fiveStars' 2 year anniversary circuit tour Realistic ideal 2014.

UNDER CODE LAST COLLABORATION 「D・N・A」 revealed!!


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.

UNDER CODE teases last collaboration


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.
Collection album privileges
I've compiled a list of all shop privileges for UNDER CODE PRODUCTION's recently-released and upcoming collection albums. So if any of you are planning to buy any, be sure to get the best privileges! (And maybe even coordinate with each other to get different privileges and share them~!)

UNDER CODE PRODUCTION memorial omnibus


UNDER CODE PRODUCTION has announced that, in collaboration with SHOXX, it will release its 10th anniversary memorial last omnibus, High Style Paradox 2003~2013.

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.

KISAKI 20th year memorial event


As part of UNDER CODE PRODUCTION's 10th anniversary special events, a special live will be held to commemorate KISAKI's 20 years (!!) of legendary band activity. UNDER CODE's biggest bands will appear at the event, and will each play 2 cover songs from KISAKI's bands.

By the way, this is labeled the “Chikasen (UNDER CODE) version”. I wonder if there will be a Matina version announced later??

REALies has announced their next activities: several new live events and a B-side collection album featuring new songs! But more importantly, the band has sent a clear message with the titles of those lives and releases: despite UNDER CODE's closure, REALies will continue.

The band's B-side collection album, to「B」continued, will be released in February, 2013. The album will come in two types: TYPE A will include a PV collection DVD, including a PV for new song YUMEOI PLANET; and TYPE B will feature a bonus track, It ties with future.. The official web shop privilege is a signed cheki and personalized message DVD.

Then, on January 26th and 27th, REALies will hold its two day sponsored event, two DAY continued, at SHIBUYA-REX. This leads into the band's Tokyo-Osaka-Nagoya oneman tour, まだ终わらねぇ。 (Mada Owaranee。 {translation: We're not done yet.}).

KISAKI also recently mentioned in his blog that the members of REALies have moved their base of operations from Osaka to Tokyo―this assuredly means an increase in the strength of their activity. With that, as well as the titles of their collection album and oneman tour, we can rest assured that REALies will survive UNDER CODE's closure. Looks like they have a bright future ahead of them!
CLUB CHIKASEN


UNDER CODE has hastily decided to hold another edition of CLUB★地下线 (CLUB★Chikasen) immediately after its New Year countdown live. At the event, all UNDER CODE band members (except from Cu[be]) and 120 lucky attendees will drink and have fun!

WE LOVE UNDER CODE privilege sharing program
Although it's ahead of schedule, I'm happy to announce the WE LOVE UNDER CODE privilege sharing program!

Starting today, those of you who purchase qualifying releases through CDJapan and provide proof to WE LOVE UNDER CODE will receive copies of Japan-only store privileges! The catch is that this only applies to certain releases (those which will be purchased by WE LOVE UNDER CODE staff participating in this program), and they must be purchased via the affiliate links below (this allows me to confirm the purchase, and any funds will go to special WE LOVE UNDER CODE programs planned for the rest of the year).

Participating in the program is simple: purchase one of the following qualifying CDs using the affiliate links below. Once you have completed your purchase, forward the CDJapan confirmation email to weloveucp@gmail.com, and the privilege will be mailed to you upon its release.

Further clarifying information will be forthcoming in the next week, but these are the basics. I will continue to post updates any time that releases are added to or removed from this program, or if any there are any changes in privileges.

Although CDJapan is the best store for international visual kei purchases (because of its point rewards and multitude of payment options), it's sometimes sorely lacking in privileges when compared to Japanese stores. Hopefully this program can change that, even if only for a few people. I hope that this is a welcomed program for those of you who can only purchase from CDJapan!
Vior gloire, SUZAKU, and REALies album updates


SUZAKU (朱) has revealed the cover art and tracklisting of their upcoming (one week!) first full album. The cover art is pretty cool, but the tracklisting includes a SUPER disappointing only 4 new songs. Let's hope that some of the old ones are rerecorded, shall we?

Vior gloire has revealed the tracklisting for their upcoming first full album, but no cover art yet! Contrast to SUZAKU, Vior gloire's album features 14 tracks (originally announced as only having 10!). Four of them are story SE tracks, but the album still features a hefty 8 new songs, and only 2 previously released ones. Go Vior gloire!

Megaromania VS REALies


It was announced today that Megaromania and REALies will “clash” in a twoman battle. The two-day twoman is called Clash of the survivors, appropriately enough, and will be held this September. Quite a strange pairing, but it should make for a great live!

REALies announces first album!!
REALies' fan appreciation session live

REALies has announced their first full album, LEVEL.!!

The album will be released on October 3rd in two types. The album will contain 10 total tracks; four of the tracks are old (“from impossible-to-get singles”), but the other six are brand new. The A type will include a live DVD with 10 tracks from the band's 2012-06-30 first anniversary oneman. The cheaper B type, on the other hand, will include a bonus track. All copies of the album will also include a trading card (randomly selected, of 6 total).

※ I've included speculative and unofficial tracklists. For example, the album will included 4 songs from old singles, and the band has, conveniently, only released 4 singles—so, it's 90% likely, but unconfirmed, that those title tracks will appear. Furthermore, REALies played a new song, As'ever, at their oneman; again, unconfirmed, but likely to be included. Finally, the live DVD will only include 10 tracks; I've listed the full 14 track setlist from the live at which the DVD was recorded, so we at least know which tracks are possible.

Normally I don't like to post speculative tracklists. In this case, however, we had so many hints that I figured I might as well—besides, UNDER CODE is notorious for releasing tracklist information way too late, so who knows when we'll get it this time!

Phantasmagoria tribute 2012


In 2007, UNDER CODE PRODUCTION sponsored a “Tribute to Phantasmagoria” tour at which all bands payed homage to Phantasmagoria. It has since become tradition for the label to host an annual “Tribute to Phantasmagoria” memorial live on the band's disbandment anniversary. And this tradition continues in 2012!

UNDER CODE 9th anniversary addition
UNDER CODE PRODUCTION recently announced an additional event to its “RIOT GALE of NINE YEARS” live series, which celebrates its 9th anniversary.

The new event is called 江坂遊戯 (Esaka Yuugi; Esaka Games) and will be divided into two parts: the first part featuring most of UNDER CODE's bands, and the second part featuring session bands made up of those members.

Tickets are on sale now: a regular ticket (good for one part of the live only) can be purchased for 3,150 yen through the normal venues; but a special picture ticket, which is good for both parts of the live, can be purchased exclusively through the official web shop for 5,500 yen. Tickets #1 ~ #100 were initially sold at the web shop, but those immediately sold out, so tickets #101 ~ #200 have now been added.

SELFISH DREAMER with Anjyu'
UNDER CODE is sponsoring an event for 兼継 (Kentz), ex drummer of 「あゃ」 (「Aya」) and chariots, as he retires from the music scene. (I mentioned this live in a previous post, but full details have since been revealed.)



The live is called SELFISH DREAMER with DEAR FRIENDS and will take place on April 21st and 28th. At both lives, 「あゃ」 (「Aya」) will hold a revival performance, and chariots will appear as a friendship guest. Furthermore, NEGA and REALies will appear during the first day, and Dali, REALies, and Vior gloire will appear on the second day. Furthermore, Anjyu' will hold a revival performance during the second day.

REALies important announcement...


As mentioned long ago, REALies had an important announcement to make at their twoman this morning... They'll release their first mini-album!!

REALies' mini-album is called to the REAL and will be released on 2012-05-02 in two types. The A type will include a PV while the B type will include a bonus track. Those who buy both types from the official web shop will receive a one-of-a-kind message DVD as well as a signed cheki.

To support the release, REALies will embark on a 9 city tour called -2012- the REAL [9] AROUND. The tour will start with a oneman live, REAL [A] GaINST, and will end with a three day tour final of sponsored events. Finally, the band will hold a two day oneman live, NuWAVE ROCK SHOW ~THE ЯEVERSE~, to celebrate their one year anniversary.

So much success already! Go REALies!

REALies previews and new look
REALies have revealed a new promotional photo (same costumes as NEXT⇒, but with a different backdrop). And more importantly, they've uploaded samples of Plug[I]n and HALJION from their upcoming limited single.

⇒ Check out the new look and samples here!

What do you think? I'm really liking Plug[I]n so far!

REALies limited releases
1) REALies has just announced a new limited single. 2) I've discovered some distributed releases that REALies failed to mention online. 3) REALies has announced some new limited goods, which include more distributed releases. ~It's a limited/distributed release party!~

First, as I mentioned, REALies has just announced the release of a new limited single called Plug[I]n. The single features two tracks (the title track being one of their newest songs—funny how they keep releasing new songs so quickly after writing them, but still have several unreleased songs from the day they formed...), and it will be sold only through the official web shop and at live shows.

Secondly, as I said, I just recently discovered that REALies distributed a comment CD called REALadio Vol.2 at their 2011-07-23 sponsored event. I assume this means a Vol.1 was sold at their 2011-07-03 event. I'm not sure if any more have been release since.

And finally, REALies has announced the sale of new goods during their upcoming 5 city tour—including three more volumes of REALadio and three volumes of an offshot DVD. Anyway, the new goods are original REALies pin badges (set of 3 for 500 yen), original muffler towels (2 colors, 1,300 yen each), original glow bracelets (2 colors, set of 6 for 500 yen), and a REALies SPECIAL BAG (3,000 yen each). Each special bag will cost 3,000 yen, and only 50 will be sold in total. Here are the contents of the bags:
  • REALadio Happy New Year Ver. – type A, B, or C (randomly selected)
  • REALies OFFSHOT Ura DVD – type A, B, or C (randomly selected)
  • Happy New Year cheki – set of 2 (randomly selected)
  • member purikura – set of 2 (randomly selected)
  • CHANGE!

DELUGE and NEXT⇒ release date
NEGA's new single, DELUGE, and REALies' new single, NEXT⇒, have been released in Japan!

You can buy the digital versions of both singles at Amazon JP MP3. Because the store is limited to Japanese customers, you'll have to use a proxy—I used 182.48.54.133 port 8080. (Let me know if you need help through the process.)

⇒ Buy REALies - NEXT⇒ TYPE B at Amazon JP MP3


You can, of course, also buy the physical copies through CDJapan! If you plan to purchase, please consider using the links below, as they help the community. (But hurry! There's only 1 copy of TYPE C of DELUGE!)

[Archived] NEGA and REALies samples
Samples of upcoming NEGA and REALies singles have finally been uploaded at Amazon. The preview widgets won't embed for some reason, so you'll have to check the links manually: NEGA, REALies. (As usual, you can only buy if you live in the UK or Japan, and only after the release date.)

If you liked the samples, don't forget to buy the CDs through CDJapan! Using these links helps support the community♥ ⇒ NEGA - DELUGE TYPE A

[Archived] REALies next updates
I come bearing a handful of updates about REALies! First of all, a CM for their upcoming single has been released! The covers of the upcoming single have been revealed as well, albeit in super tiny form. At any rate, this new flyer is much bigger.

Furthermore, I posted earlier this week about the band's five city tour; well, today they've announced details of the tour final (don't forget about the important announcement that will be made there!):

REALies has just announced a 2012 five-city tour, although it's not yet clear whether all of these lives will be sponsored exclusively by the band. At any rate, they'll make another “important announcement” at the tour final in February, so be on the look out for that.

important announcement



I really hope that this important announcement thing doesn't become a trend for them, because it's bit exhausting to wait four months for something which is probably [hopefully] just a “we're releasing a mini-album, you guys!” (Plus there's the whole cry-wolf syndrome; when they eventually do have an important announcement about disbandment, no one will believe them!)

At any rate, that's exciting for them. I'll update with individual info about the lives when it's available.

[Archived] REALies lyrics
Hello! I decided to type up and romanize the lyrics from REALies' first single, NuAGE. The lyrics aren't super inspiring or anything, but they're formatted in really cool ways, so I thought it would be fun to do. So, enjoy~

[Archived] REALies new single + event full details
REALies' new single, NEXT⇒, will be released in two types on November 30th. Both types will feature the same title and coupling tracks, but the A type will feature a PV while the B type will feature a third bonus track. As of now, the official web shop privilege is undecided, other than an early shipping date of November 24th.

To celebrate the release, they plan to sponsor two events in Osaka and Tokyo. At each event, a present (as of yet unspecified) will be freely distributed to attendees.

[Archived] REALies lives + release
REALies held their tour final last night, REALive Vol.3 「Stund UP!! NuAGE ~FINAL~」. If you're curious, bassist 明イ-akino- posted their setlist:
01. CHANGE!
02. D.O.P.E
03. 曖昧カテゴライズ (Aimai CATEGORIZE)
04. NEXT⇒
05. 浮遊グラフィック (Fuyuu GRAPHIC)
06. ハルジオン (HALJION)
07. I can't live without U
08. ヒカルセカイ (HIKARU SEKAI)
09. NuAGE
EN 01. Stund UP×3

As you know, the band freely distributed a single called CHANGE! at the event last night, but the real draw of the live was that they were going to make an important announcement. Well here it is:

REALies will release a new single called NEXT⇒ on 2011-11-30!

In addition, the band has announced a handful of special lives. First, the band will hold two sponsored events, REALive Vol.4 「NEXT⇒DOOR ~OSAKA~」 and REALive Vol.5 「NEXT⇒DOOR ~TOKYO~」 on 2011-11-19 and 2011-11-26, respectively.

Second, the band will hold a 2 days twoman event called 2012 MOVE ON BRIGHT. The first day (2012-01-14) will feature REALies vs Called≠Plan, while the second day (2012-01-15) will feature REALies vs 2nd Dyz.

---

Specific details about the single and lives will be posted when they're available. But in the mean time, I'm excited! Even though I didn't like REALies much at first, their songs are pretty catchy, so I'll wait until this next single to completely form my opinion.

[Archived] REALies event + important announcement + new song
Back in July, REALies announced their tour final, REALive Vol.3 「Stund UP!! NuAGE ~FINAL~」 (and my bad for not posting about it back then); today, full details about the event have been revealed.

The event will be held on 2011-09-19 at ESAKA MUSE, and will feature several special acts. First, special band R'z (Ritsu's B'z cover band) will open the show. Second, each member of REALies will play with his own session band. And finally, REALies will play a longer-than-usual setlist of 60 minutes.

Additionally, a one-day-limited single with a new song, which will feature a special picture label, will be freely distributed to attendees. Unfortunately, the single, which is called CHANGE!, will be given away at that live only—so if you can't attend, there's no chance of getting the CD.

Lastly, REALies will also make an important announcement at the event.

To be honest, I kind of hate bands for distributing stuff at lives. It's really nice for attendees of course, but I wish there was some way us overseas fans could hear such songs ;( Ah well!

Let's all hope that the important announcement is a good one!

[Archived] REALies - NuAGE Full PV
i just saw this on youtube and decided to share ^^



[Archived] REALies first oneman
REALies held their debut oneman yesterday, so I thought I'd do a little roundup post about it!

KISAKI and fellow label-mates NEGA and Vior gloire attended the show and lent their support. Furthermore, even though it was one of the band's first lives, there were already fans lending their full support as well. The fans—called リアっ子 (REAkko)—brought presents for the band including flowers, cheesecake, and home-made guitar picks! So overall it seems that the show was a great success!

明イ-akino- posted the setlist, below:
01. NuAGE
02. D.O.P.E
03. plug [I]n
04. 曖昧カテゴライズ (Aimai CATEGORIZE)
05. CHANGE!
06. 浮遊グラフィック (Fuyuu GRAPHIC)
07. ハルジオン (HARUJION)
08. ヒカルセカイ (HIKARU SEKAI)
09. I can't live without U
10. STUND UP×3
-ENCORE-
01. ヒカルセカイ (HIKARU SEKAI)
02. plug [I]n
03. STUND UP×3

It's surprisingly fleshed out for such a new band! In total, they played seven unreleased songs. But on top of that, 明イ-akino- revealed way back in May that the band already had at least 15 fleshed out demos. So if this first single is successful, we could be seeing a lot of output from REALies!

---

I have to say, I'm still not entirely sure what to think about these guys. I'm not normally into bands of their style, but they seem to be working really hard and I appreciate that. Well, I guess I'll be sure what to think after hearing their first single!

What do you think?

[Archived] New band! REALies (w/ PV sample)
The new UNDER CODE PRODUCTION band has been announced: REALies!


Official profile at the OHP


Their concept is “Nu wave”, and they've officially started activities as of May 1st. They've already announced their first release, a single called NuAGE, as well as their first sponsored events and oneman live.

Here's the exciting bit (at least for me): the vocalist and bassist are ex-Synside! I'm not sure about the other members yet, but speak up if you recognize them! ---





Their first release is a two type maxi-single, in celebration of their formation. Both types will contain the same two songs, while the A type will include a PV and the B type will include a bonus track. The privilege for buying both from the official web shop is an early ship date (2011-07-06) and a message + live DVD recorded at their 2011-07-01 oneman.

Surprisingly, their first live is also set to be their first oneman! The live is called REALies 1st One Man -NuWAVE ROCK SHOW-, and will be held on 2011-07-01 at OSAKA MUSE. Those who attend will receive a special DVD present, although the contents haven't been announced.

Then, on 2011-07-03 and 2011-07-23, they'll sponsor two events under the name Stund UP!! (hopefully a typo). A special present will be distributed at those lives as well, although details of that have not been announced either.

So! What do you think? It's a little weird for me to see Rayka doing something “light” like this; but then again, the sample makes it seem like it may be a mixture of light and heavy sounds. They seem like they're going for a mix of NEU and HEISEI ISHIN, but hopefully they'll carve out a niche of their own. I'm really excited and will definitely be buying their first release!

[Archived] Off topic: new band discussion~
Off topic 'cause this is more just bits of info for discussion~

  • 2 new bands Last time, I said that Vsoku had reported plans for 2 new UNDER CODE bands this year. I have no clue where they got that info—I thought they'd said it was from KISAKI's latest interview with Cure, but I can't find that anymore, and didn't notice any mention of new bands in the article—but Vsoku is trustworthy, so.

  • New band 赤 At any rate, one new band was already confirmed: 赤 (Aka). —and speaking of which, I emailed UNDER CODE to confirm the romanization (can't be too careful with one-character names), [2011-03-22 edit: the official romanization was later revealed to be Suzaku] and they said they won't reveal it until later. But anyway, aside from a name and live date, we know nothing about them.

  • New bands under way, totally fresh Today, KISAKI updated his blog, saying that he'd held an interview about and had some meetings with the new bands. Promisingly, he said that they'll breathe new fresh air into UNDER CODE, hahaha.

  • 3 new bands?! The next line in that same post starts off “though it was 3 bands in quick succession...” Assuming that means he held meetings with three bands in a row, does that mean three bands are already planned to join UNDER CODE this year?! I could be misunderstanding, or he could have met with two new bands and one current one, but if it does mean three new bands, increíble! [2011-05-01 edit: yep, it was three new bands total; aside from 朱 (Suzaku), the remaining two were REALies and Vior gloire

  • Potential costume designs Lastly, also in the same post, he uploaded a tiny picture of some official documents. Seems that two of them are prototype costume designs for the new bands? The one on top—I'm assuming 赤—seems really dark and kote-ish, which is awesome. The one on the bottom looks like DecoLa Hopping, which just confuses me. But I guess that would be fresh air, huh?

    Oh, one final thing: there are only two costume designs. So does that mean no third band? Or the third is so new that it doesn't have costume designs yet? Or the design drawings aren't for the new bands at all? Hmm~
Whatever's going on, it's very mysterious and exciting, isn't it? Let's hear your thoughts!
