Dec. 28, 2008 Nice feeling!? Middle Feeling

At this Dis Inferno those who know the early Malice Mizer were able to hear a rare thing.
The song that was played "Speed of~" was the very first Malice Mizer recording.
The early member Tetsu also came and said "It was deeply moving!"
However, during my drum solo it is said the bass drum accessories flew off and a double was asked for, however do you think perhaps the excitement and energy were a little too much [for it]?
That cannot bring down a fun spirit because this is a party!
something or other burst open in victory.
Also, Kozi unexpectedly waved at me to do the "Bikei" pose for you!
For a long time, Kozi has been standing on stage doing single guitar so his chest throbbed.
After all, it was a nice middle.

For Moi dix Mois, I have been anticipating this song we've been making.
Although yesterday was the first announcement of the new song, I hope the disuto (dixtors) will bond with this piece and raise it up.

Also, yo-o-wo**!!

Mana

**yo - o - wo is abbreviation for "yoi otoshi wo" which is a kind of New Years greeting.
It directly translates to "A Good year" basically looking back at the year currently passing and saying it was a good year.

Nov. 24, 2008 The Rose Dances and the first reunion

I'm back. You who are noisy!
The weather was also, and I have quite a bit of the wedding day information.
I wore a Moi-meme-Moitie suit in with a cross accent which was effective along with my blue eyes and jet black eyelids I decided to be elegant and gothic.
No, I had to decide it.
Katsuo's younger brother's middle school daughter seemed to admire me (It was quite a good tendency) My image could not be destroyed.
The male and female friends of my relatives were also invited.
fufufu......

I ran across a band member of Malice Mizer whom I am friends with.
Various fellow red haired, blond, and long haired rockers gathered at the place of the wedding ceremony where there was a mysterious maado (?) in the air.

There were also many respectable adults there such as politician Mr. Kame ____ and a mysterious concert was held at the assembly hall.

The church bells then resounded more and more......

and then there was a continuation.

Nov. 11, 2008 marriage

Next week I am going home for a three day vacation.
Why am I visiting my parents at this time? you are probably thinking.
With it being the peak of autumn, every day continues to be unpleasantly cold, however I got some warm news.
It is because for those who know him, you know my cousin Katsuo is getting married.

Congratulations!!!

His companion is, for those of you who are familiar with reading the Madousho and have made a goal in conclusion, Katsuo's mysterious girlfriend who has made many appearances.
Its wonderful, its wonderful.

Thus, for those of you who know about Katsuo, please whisper "Congratulations" in your mind.
Also, please watch over this year's end of the year Dis Inferno performance warmly.

Nov. 3, 2008 The Fated Blue Rose

In my body,
The feeling of your pulsation is resounding beside me.
Also, the warmth is,
tenderly wrapping around me.
your thoughts, desires are,
give me power that illuminates a pathway to continue to advance.

Because the beginning of this clandestine meeting had to be brought forward a little,
the time with two people felt slowed down without being pressed for time.
Therefore, beyond the door, It was a lovely feeling to go with you but it was very painful
to see you off before the other door.

The blue rose is,
yours and my bond.
various things surmount,
Let's obtain the best of the future.

Oct. 30, 2008 Dye to red, and to the blue abyss

The sky stained with an autumn scene,
The gentle breeze and warmth
will soon wrap you and I together.
Once a year, at this place
you and I will walk an eternity together.
At the edge of this illusion, only this moment
is certainly warm of our exsistance,
I am crazy about it because it is carved in my heart.
I am tired of waiting
That time is now before my eyes......

Oct. 24, 2008 Early Impulse

Every year we begin practicing by revelries of the year end party.
Dis Inferno VI will be on December 17, held at the Ebisu Liquid Room.

Keep on waiting!!
Because this is the first concert after a long time, I want it to burst open with everyone's strength.

Of course, I expect everyone will also burst open.

Also, this time the guest performing will be Kozi!
We will be having a session after a long time!
Typically, I will have a Jack Daniel's in one hand and I will be striking out the rock feeling, baby!!
And, it is an exciting place.

What will come dashing out, fufufu...

Well, I hope you will look forward to it.

In January I will be performing at Stylish Wave.
It seems this is also becoming customary.
Shall we dye the assembly hall in the color of dix?

Oct. 10, 2008 A gentle time of entrust flowing in our bodies

To prevent the dazzling time of two people on this "Clandestine Meeting" from being invaded on even a little,
the beginning time will have to be quickened a little bit.
Here I will wait as usual during this time in the room to escort you.
On this day, together we will come out together in a restful and dark world.

10-2-2007 A Wise Commentary

To those not able to come to the Tokyo live,
The Moi-meme-Moitie 8th anniversary "Secret Meeting" will be at the Shinjuku Christon Cafe on November 24th.

On this day, the two of us will have a short randezvous This short inderdiction of Romance is a special day.
I am waiting now with you to spend the day for this sweet moment.

P.S.
At this Tokyo live there was a lot of crowding/pushing.
Dixtors faces had a look of "aahh~!" in them due to over crowding.

Although, I understand a little that you want to get as close to the stage as you can...

Sept. 23, 2008 Keep waiting

It feels like I'm crossing a mountain with production work and such.
I seem to have been shifting my activities little by little.
Various types of pieces have been wonderfly written for the sake of the album production (one I'm producing) It was difficult, but I hope you will be able to enjoy it.

You will be able to feel my new drawing out because there are musical pieces of every type.
Though it is good, these musical pieces are still being finished by me.

Also, appearing in November is a first time privledge of the newly released production.
For those who want to hear a Mana sound this is a vital check because I am compiling the installation.

I think there will be quite an interesting response because two tracks I'm compiling are opposites.

Well, I want to begin drum practice soon.

What will appear this time!

I want to announce the new song.

Sept. 9, 2008 TV

The other day I undertook coverage of NHK's "Tokyo Kawaii TV".
This time the theme was "Gothic and Lolita".
There were also new pictures taken of the Shinjuku Moi-meme-Moitie.
I went to Aoyama's photography studio for my interview recording.
A soft and blue roses were made for the set, like Mana-sama's room?
It was sort of like that feeling.
Will you look forward to it to see which kind of feeling is televised?
There is becoming a feeling because no rehearsal was recording..
A feeling of fear...
It seems it will be televised in the middle of this month.
the official should confirm a detailed schedule.

August 31, 2008 Hiroshima shop store closing hand shaking session

To all of you who came out,
I received your great power. Thanks.
Lately over here it has been contiuous heavy rain...
I had been worried about it but on the very day the weather was great and I was feeling great!
It was also good for sightseeing for the people who had come for the first time too.

It was very important to me, that I was able to hear everyone's desires first hand at this personal session event.
Understanding the size of everyone's love was proof of reaffirmation to my life.

Then my creative urges were beginning to bubble and boil.
Of course, I will appear on stage again soon and I want to make it to become even more powerful.

Be waiting, because now I am preparing lives and other things.

Necessarily, I have been vowing to elevate this and make it even greater.

I hope you all will wait for me, because I will be waiting for you.

August 16, 2008 At the Hiroshima Sun Mall

On the 31st of this month, I will be at the Hiroshima shop closing event.
This really gives me a lonely feeling because this is the place of my birth, but I intend not to be sad at this event.
Above all, It will be the first time for everyone to meet up in a while.
I am looking forward to meeting all of you.
Also, those of you who have never been, will be able to visit Hiroshima!
For this occassion, how about enjoying yourself by taking a tour of Hiroshima?
Hiroshima is a great place, so come out for this one occasion.

July 6, 2008 Dinner of Blood and Roses

The other day, since many years ago I ate dinner with Yu~ki, Kozi, and three other people.
Nobody has changed.
Having said that, conversely we all felt rejuvinated!
You might say, The count is a vampire and the style of Kozi's tatoo's make him like a rocker.
The vampire and rocker are immortal things.
Also, We rose a toast to blood dripped meat and red sparkling wine and a conversation arose about music and equiptment.
After all, I do have a fondness of music.
In translated impression (?), the dinner of blood and roses had come to an end.

June 21, 2008 Did you see it! The Magnificent La Kitchen Knife Aristocrat

The recording of the next production project I am working on has come to a close,
however nowdays I am starting pieces and music data of my own.

Well, the Madousho should have reached the Mon+Amour members by now.
The Phantom Chef "La Kitchen Knife Aristocrat" mystery recipe was seen.
Did anyone challenge it?
Please send me letters.

June 6, 2008 Logic.......

Today I talked with the expert.
Who is the expert? you're thinking!!
Well, its not a dixton baby.
Certainly, Mon+Amour members will be able to understand it.

Currently I'm working within *'s leading * business
I thought about exposing the expert's identity but he is very stubborn.
As one would expect, his high speed fingers and head gear leads a group of juvenile delinquents.
Amber liquid increases entrobe from the brain!!
On the contrary, have I seemed to be exposed?

fufufu....

Well, lets look forward to it.

May 30, 2008 Hurry!

After yesterday's monologue update, the DVD sold out surprisingly fast.
They disappeared as soon as several preliminary stocks were added.

Not everyone is able to see the Monologue.

I want to say it is regrettable that not everyone is able to buy it...

However, There is still hope, so don't give up!

It is said to be irresponsible.......

However, It is not understood whatever happens in real life.
If you desire to stay strong, it is likely to come true.

May 29, 2008 It seems you want to watch more?

Things such as my druming in Mana's Not Dead and Seth's version of the Prophet have been recorded
and released in the "Visual kei DVD magazine".

This DVD is being sold only for foreign countries, but a small amount will be sold in the Midi: Nette shop.
There are already some there.

I want you to see the kind hearted spirit and embarrassement in Mana's Not Dead.

The sound recorded at the beginning of the live and the performance balance make me anxious.

I am certain there is a freshness of meaning of the live.

The puppet show that I challenged is one of the highlights!?

I have no doubt this DVD is somewhat of a rare thing.

Mana

May 26, 2008 Long time no see
How do you do, everyone?
Somehow since the last entry my updates have become extremely empty.
In Monologue, Updates have stopped for an underground production that Moi dix Mois and myself are scheduled to announce next.

Has this caused concern to everyone who looks forward to Monologue?
To change the state of mind here, I am thinking of renewing Monologue Theater.

Photos will be put up next, along with my usual appearances along with hobbies of my world will be updated and put up publicly little by little.

I will introduce new equiptment and I am beginning my next work creation right now.

It will take some time.

Feb. 28, 2008 Squirming

Less than a month until the madou gathering.

This is how I celebrate my birthday every year.
I am able to have an event and I am very happy.
But there is a surprise for the birthday event.
But will anything jump out at you this year?
decay decay decay...look forward to it.

p.s. I am producing an artist, but we decided this spring will be the major debute.
Right now, preliminary arrangements are being finalized and things are fairly noisy around here.
Next month, information will be released and later an announcement will be made.

This project will be a new challenge for me.
This will be a big project that expands my own activities to great widths.
By all means, I want you to watch over this warmly.

The DIXANADU Europe Tour Paris Live DVD has been safetly put on the market and I have been enjoying reading people's impressions through email.

The guitar fair ended successfully the other day too. (Now I am a little lonely)
To those who came and those who bought Jennufeeya, Thanks!!
From the ESP manager yesterday,
Everyone who came to the fair was heard, and everyone had a great time.
People who weren't fans were even suprised by my shining guitar, and looked interested in the DVD.
It is also said that they bought Moi dix Mois CDs too.

When I heard this, I was really happy.

P.S. Today let's eat melon bread.

Jan. 21, 2008 Tonight was the best dix!!

The Zy. Event was quite fun.
Overall, there were a lot of violent bands. It was quite stimulating.
Were all of us Dixton babies able to have fun? (uhh..wtf? XD)
The disutos (dixtors) showed guidance (and the mania people too)
dix Love! was associated all around, however I felt real pleasure in becoming one at this event.
After this, I think we have broken the boarder lines of dix Love power!!

Moi dix Mois was the last appearance.
Until now, Moi dix Mois was never the ending appearance.
It was an unexpectedly fresh and interesting feeling to be the last band, because for the first time we had a large crowd.
For Moi dix Mois, it was a very happy sensation for us to feel.
decay decay decay......
Anyway, yesterday was the best dix!!

Jan. 19, 2008 Getting fired up! and waiting

It will be the best night ever!!!
Also, 1/3 of the Live in Paris "DIXANADU ~Fated raison d'etra~" DVD will be shown the next day at the Shibuya ESP craft house.

and then, the guitar exhibition will be reopening again.
I will be waiting early there for you and the guitars will be on sale for those of you who have been waiting to purchase one and for those of you who want to look.
How many of you have been waiting for this opportunity?

Jan. 14, 2008 The out break of war is very soon

One week until the Zy. event.
Everyone, prepare yourselves well!
I want to see your disuton powers.
Still, Moi dix Mois cannot see everyone because they become swallowed up in a swirl of jet black.
Surely we will fill the ZEPP hall and bring ourselves together as one.

Jan. 7, 2008 Tokyo, the city that never sleeps

I was able to relax in the stillness and greenery of my hometown,
but then I had to return to the contrete jungle.
Moreover,every day I keep up with my war cry without any time.
Today the Live DVD is finishing into the final steps.
After that, we just have to wait for the day it goes on sale.

The view of the live DVD is wide screen, and the presence increases compared with 4:3 before because the live images this time are a screen specification of 16:9 of the panoramic screen.
Also, this is the first attemp of an audio commentary of the "Documentary".
Each member has input in it, so it should be quite fresh and interesting.
However, look for the normal "Documentary" first!!!
I guess it is good to know this first hand.
decay decay decay...
Please look forward to it.

Jan. 1, 2008 A-o-ko-yo!!
