Ren solo live and Mis†ake revival
Ren solo live and Mis†ake revival

Sanada Ren (of Tatoeba Konna Hanashi) has mentioned that Nanjou Riku (南條 戮) (of chariots) will appear at his 2016-01-11 solo live at Shinsaibashi (心斎橋) JU-ZA.

Zaidan Houjin Kurojuuji (as “Kurojuuji”) will perform, and cheki of both vocalists will be sold at the live. Those who purchase 5,000 yen worth of goods will be allowed to take a twoshot with either Ren or Riku, and will further receive a 2004 photograph of Zaidan Houjin Kurojuuji. There's also something about personal goods/live DVD in regards to cheki being sold, but I don't understand it.

---

Furthermore, Ren's 90s-visual alter-ego band Mis†ake will hold a time limited revival as Mis†akeⅡ (From.加古川). Their oneman, Mezamereba, REMEMBER (めざめれば、リメンバー), will be held on 2016-02-12 at Shinsaibashi (心斎橋) JU-ZA, with opening act Paranoid≠circuS.

I've no clue who the Mis†akeⅡ members are, as the flyer just shows weird stick figures. (In the past, it was Dali members, but I assume that's not the case anymore.)

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.
Ren solo oneman with Zaidan Houjin Kurojuuji
Sanada Ren (the solo project of Tatoeba Konna Hanashi vocalist Ren) will hold his oneman, ed, on 2016-01-11 at Shinsaibashi (心斎橋) JU-ZA.

It appears, from the flyer, that Zaidan Houjin Kurojuuji will appear as a guest act. There's no mention if ex-chariots vocalist RIKU or any other usual members of Zaidan Houjin Kurojuuji will participate, but I'll update if more information becomes available.

Recap of Ren (Tatoeba Konna Hanashi) 2015 activities
Here's a chronological recap of what Ren (Dali, Tatoeba Konna Hanashi, etc.) and his projects have been up to this year:


  • Tatoeba Konna Hanashi paused activities on 2015-03-27.
  • Tatoeba Konna Hanashi vocalist 真田 廉 (Sanada Ren) and bassist Takahashi Kento (高橋 研斗) then formed unit NOBEL LABEL (ノベルラベル), which played on 2015-04-19 and 2015-04-29.

    NOBEL LABEL (ノベルラベル)

  • At NOBEL LABEL's first live, the 5,000 yen purchase privilege was either: the unit's first demo CD-R, or a DVD-R of Tatoeba Konna Hanashi's encore from their oneman. The unit also sold their first photoset and badge set.

    NOBEL LABEL photoset

    NOBEL LABEL badge set

  • At NOBEL LABEL's second live, they sold their second badge set, and the 5,000 yen purchase privilege was a Tatoeba Konna Hanashi new song demo CD-R.

    NOBEL LABEL second badge set

  • Tatoeba Konna Hanashi members G. Ninna Kousuke (仁和 恒介), B. Takahashi Kento (高橋 研斗), and D. Kishihara Masami (岸原 雅巳) participated in the TOWER RECORDS “VISUAL LIFE Vol.1” project. It was basically a pamphlet featuring artists' comments (and some photos) that was awarded to those who purchased participating artists' CDs during 2015-05-12~2015-06-12.
  • On 2015-05-25, NOBEL LABEL held another live, and sold their third badge set.

    A new Mis†ake (Dali alter-ego band) “best album” was released at the live. Also, the 5,000 yen purchase privilege was either of these Dali live DVD-Rs:
    - 2012-10-28 Dali Halloween alter-ego session Happy☆Everyday (はっぴい☆えぶりでい)
    - 2012-08-08 Dali sponsored event

    NOBEL LABEL third badge set

  • Later in May, Dali made a few items available for mail-order through their official blog (despite being disbanded). The band's last live DVD and last original CD were available, along with the aforementioned Mis†ake best album. (See this page for instructions.)
  • Apparently, Takahashi Kento (高橋 研斗) became absent (seceded? became too busy?) from NOBEL LABEL some time in June?

    The unit held its first sponsored event, Shimesu EMOTION 3 (示すエモーション), on 2015-06-19 at Ash OSAKA. ex-paradeis guitarist Ao (碧) acted as support. The unit sold their fourth badge set.

    NOBEL LABEL fourth badge set

  • LOTMAN's 2013 mini-album was made available for mail-order through the Tatoeba Konna Hanashi blog on 2015-06-22.
  • At NOBEL LABEL's 2015-07-23 live, the unit sold its fifth badge set, and the 5,000 yen purchase privilege was a demo CD-R of Tatoeba Konna Hanashi's seventh unnamed song. ex-tomodachi bassist Io (伊緒) acted as support.

    NOBEL LABEL fifth badge set

  • On 2015-08-07, vocalist Sanada Ren (真田 廉) held his first solo live during a twoman with umbrella. umbrella to Sanada Ren (umbrellaと真田 廉) was held at Minamihorie (南堀江) SOCORE FACTORY.

    At the live, Tatoeba Konna Hanashi's first USB collection, USB oh! memory, was sold for 4,000 yen. It contained:
    - demo of Tatoeba Konna Hanashi's eighth untitled song
    - acoustic demo of Tatoeba Konna Hanashi song ed
    - lyrics
    - flyer images from 2013~2015 (6 total)
    - photos from 2013~2015 (19 total)

    Sanada Ren (真田 廉) vs umbrella Sanada Ren (真田 廉)

Also, the Tatoeba Konna Hanashi official website has closed... Ren stays messy and impossible to follow, unfortunately ;x. I've personally given up trying to get Tatoeba (etc.) releases, but it's nice to know that Ren is still chugging along and having fun, somewhere.

Sad news for fans of Tatoeba Konna Hanashi...
Tatoeba Konna Hanashi has announced during their live, 90min no auditorium, that they will go on a hiatus after their live in March 2015. Sadly, this doesn't come as a surprise as the band had not been doing well recently.
We wish the best for the members in their separate ways.

Here's some minor news regarding ALVION, ARLEQUIN, AVANCHICK, LIN, Oneness, Paranoid≠circuS, and Tatoeba Konna Hanashi:

  • In January, Tatoeba Konna Hanashi sold 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.
  • In an attempt to promote their upcoming oneman of the same name, Tatoeba Konna Hanashi is performing under the name 90min no AUDITORIUM (90minのオーディトリアム) at their 2015-02-17 live.
  • LIN's re-recording mini-album, Recollection of Phoenix, is available on Japanese iTunes. Unfortunately, it's not available on American iTunes―not sure about European, etc. Fairly pointless if we can't buy it though :'D
  • ALVION, ARLEQUIN, LIN, and label king zeebra are featured in Vol.021 of freepaper SEVEN.
  • With their latest single, Oneness reached #8 on the ORICON indies and #65 on the ORICON major charts, respectively. Good job!

    http://weloveucp.com/lives/28/
  • Today, LIN began shipment of the double-purchase mail-order-application privilege of their single Chaotic Resistance―a signed postcard. (There's no explanation of why it took so long... a postcard shouldn't take much time to produce, I would think!)

Tatoeba Konna Hanashi updates
  • Guitarist Niwa Kousuke (仁和 恒介) temporarily paused band activities on 2014-09-21 due to his spontaneous pneumothorax (自然気胸). He was able to return on 2014-10-29―however, on 2014-11-30 his symptoms reappeared and so the band will continue with only 3 members for now.
  • Vocalist Sanada Ren (真田 廉) mentioned in his locked blog post that he wonders if guitarist Niwa Kousuke will return at all... Niwa Kousuke might be demoted to support member only, or replaced with support members, as the band needs at least one guitarist.

BALA★NCE change
New Sanada Ren (真田 廉) project BALA★NCE has made a change to yesterday's announcement: instead of a comment CD, those who spend 5,000 yen at their live will receive a live DVD recorded on that day (to be shipped at a later date). They've also uploaded the cover of their single: BALA★NCE discography.
More limited releases from Ren project BALA★NCE
The other day, Sanada Ren (真田 廉) (ex-Dali, etc.), announced his new project BALA★NCE. He mentioned that they would release a CD at their first live on 2014-06-11―instead, they'll actually release three things.

They'll freely distribute a one track song called DANCING ALL RIGHT! (ダンシングオールライト!) to everyone who attends. At the same time, they'll sell a two track CD called Sarasa RANGER (さらさレンジャー) for 1,000 yen. Finally, anyone who spends 5,000 yen or more on their goods will be rewarded with a comment CD, a group cheki, and something else (unspecified).

Apparently, two of the songs are remakes of Mis†ake songs. You know, the gothic kote kei alter-ego band of ex-Dali members? Check out BALA★NCE's discography for more information.
Ren (Dali ~ Tatoeba Konna Hanashi) new project
Sanada Ren (真田 廉)―vocalist of Dali, Tatoeba Konna Hanashi (たとえばこんなはなし), etc.―has announced his latest musical project: BALA★NCE.

BALA★NCE are:
  • V. †SODOM† (†ソドム†) [ex-Mis†ake] {alter-ego of Ren}
  • G. OSCAR (オスカー)
  • B. MUTTLEY (マトレー)
  • Support D. Kisshan。 (きっしゃん。)

So it seems that this will be some weird time-limited alter-ego band. I remember "SODOM” being the vocalist of Mis†ake, so that has to be Ren, but I'm not sure who the other members are. The other members of Tatoeba Konna Hanashi? Someone else? Maybe Trombe knows?

Anyway, BALA★NCE will hold their first live on 2014-06-11 at Ash OSAKA (other details about the event TBA... even though it's only days away...). To commemorate their formation, they'll release their untitled demo CD-R.
Tatoeba Konna Hanashi demo CD-R and PV preview
Tatoeba Konna Hanashi (たとえばこんなはなし) has mentioned that certain member(s) will appear in a live on 2014-06-11 at Ash OSAKA, at which a demo CD-R will be released (the full band will not be appearing). Full details on that TBA. In the mean time, the band has posted a short version of their MONOLEON (モノレオン) silent PV:



I assume the link to the full version is within the booklet of the Yougenkyou-WEST- THE CONQUEST OF NANIWA booklet. Did anyone buy the omnibus to confirm?
