SAIKA (ex-the:Ø vo.) joins BLOOD STAIN CHILD
SAIKA (ex-the:Ø vo.) joins BLOOD STAIN CHILD

After short-lived band the:Ø had suddenly dissolved back in January 2015, it seemed unlikely that vocalist Saica (槐) would resume band activities. However, the latest band he's joined is quite a surprise.

Now going under the alternate spelling, SAIKA, the indie vocalist will join the popular rock band, BLOOD STAIN CHILD, on May 15, after their previous vocalists had already departed. They've already recorded a new single, which you can check out below:



The single, called NEXUS, is expected to be released this summer.

♦Because neither this band or SAIKA are UCP-related, further activity/news will not be covered here.

Jikkentai NEMESIS one-day revival
Jikkentai NEMESIS one-day revival

Jikkentai NEMESIS will hold a one-day revival on 2016-01-05 at OSAKA MUSE.

If you don't remember, Jikkentai NEMESIS was a continuous session band formed by guitarist SAN after the disbandment of NEGA. It featured ex-Reeper vocalist Saica and ex-Vior gloire drummer ARU. Guitarist Hiroya and bassist Nagi joined for the session's last live, and that lineup became official band the:Ø.

It has been confirmed that the 2016-01-05 performance will not feature the full lineup, but Nagi and SAN have already confirmed their participation.

That should kill the rumors of SAN being hated by everyone for joining BFN, lol.

EDIT: Saica and Aru, plus ex-LUCHE. guitarist Hikaru, have also confirmed their participation in the revival.
槐-saica- session members revealed + Nagi to play in another session band
The members of Saica (ex-the:Ø)'s session band (who are performing at Saica's birthday live on 2015-10-20) have been revealed:
Vo.槐-saica- (ex-Ridiot→Reeper→the:Ø)
Gt.瑠璃 (luri) (ex-BASH!)
Ba.凌央 (ryo) (ex-RevleZ)
Dr.白 (mashiro) (ex-メビウス(mebius))

They will be performing alongside ex-Soniqrush. vocalist Shiki's session band (which features another former member of the:Ø, bassist Nagi) on October 20 at OSAKA MUSE.

Shiki session members:
Vo.Shiki (ex-SoniqRush.)
Gt.乃逢(noa) (ex-FORTE)
Ba.凪(nagi) (ex-the:Ø)
Dr.ReN (ex-SoniqRush.)


News roundup 8/11
Here are some minor pieces of news from GOTCHAROCKA, KISAKI, Oneness, Paranoid≠circuS, REALies, and the:Ø:


  • 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-. In addition to distributing an acoustic version of their song Utsusemi (空蝉), the band will hold a photo session, and distribute kizuna's apple juice. (IDEK)
  • REALies sold this towel. Rest in peace, REALies!
  • LIN will participate in the latest edition of HOPE AND LIVE, an AIDS awareness and benefit concert series. The event, to be held on 2015-10-04 at Shinjuku ReNY, will also feature SPEED-iD, HIGHFASHIONPARALYZE, and Kawamura Ryuichi (河村 隆一) of LUNA SEA, among others.
  • KISAKI had an interview in freepaper VR Virtual Reality SPECIAL ISSUE.
  • ex-Oneness vocalist JUKI (ジュキ) will appear in a session band on 2015-09-01 at Ikebukuro (池袋) CYBER.

  • 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.
  • GOTCHAROCKA has collaborated with jewely brand GIGOR to produce a series of GOTCHAROCKA pendants. Each member's version has a different jewel color. Orders were accepted through 2015-07-31, but seem to be closed now.
  • ex-the:Ø vocalist 槐-saica- will hold his birthday presents live at OSAKA MUSE on 2015-10-20.
Minor news roundup 4/27
The latest minor news from ARLEQUIN, Black Gene For the Next Scene, LIN, PENTAGON, REALies, Tatoeba Konna Hanashi, and the:Ø:


  • ARLEQUIN has released some new goods.
  • Black Gene For the Next Scene uploaded the full PV for their new song Uragaeri (裏返り):

  • I added lyrics for LIN's latest single, Memento-Mori.
  • In TYPE:C of PENTAGON's new single, Shounen WALTZ (少年ワルツ), the bonus track ANEMONE (アネモネ) was misprinted as Suisai (水彩). GOEMON RECORDS apologizes for the mistake.
  • REALies vocalist Rayka has produced his own clothing brand, MY/WAY. The first item of the collection is a shirt called “-DROWN ME-”, which he designed. The size-free shirt will be sold at lives beginning on 2015-04-28 for 3,500 yen. Check it out here.
  • At their 2015-04-29 live, Tatoeba Konna Hanashi [performing under the name NOBEL LABEL (ノベルラベル)] will release a demo of “new song 5” (awarded to those who spend 5,000 yen on goods).
  • Recently-disbanded the:Ø has re-opened their web shop after their previous drama, and is selling limited quantities of their last mini-album, cold the:Øry. I bought a copy, so I'll share it here if it's not available any more...
the:Ø webshop down
the:Ø's web shop has been temporarily closed, apparently due to fraudulent activities. If I understand correctly, someone was placing orders using the name and address of someone who didn't want any items, resulting in the band spending large amounts of money on shipping, etc. The band is currently investigating whether or not to involve the police and how to move forward.

That being said, although the band had mentioned that their mini-album would be sold through the web shop, it never appeared in the days after their last live, so I guess that's no longer happening. Also, the band said that they will accept orders from overseas, as long as those customers can wire money via bank transfer. But as I said, the mini-album isn't for sale there, and the shop is temporarily(?) closed anyway...
the:Ø live clip uploaded
the:Ø has uploaded a live clip of their song The PURGE:


the:Ø mini-album preview
When I posted about the:Ø disbanding, I wasn't sure if their mini-album cold the:Øry would still be released―but now it's been confirmed that the CD will still be released, as the band has uploaded a trailer on YouTube. Funnily enough, it already sounds better than their previous works!


the:O to disband
the:Ø has announced that they will disband at their free oneman live on 2015-01-23. The members apparently couldn't agree on a direction for future activities after the intended secession of guitarist Hiroya (尋弥)―however, since the group is disbanding so soon, Hiroya has rescinded his withdrawal so that they can end with 5 members. The band has not mentioned whether or not their mini-album cold theory will still be released as planned.
