    So surprised no one has posted that Mana is planning a 25th Anniversary event. He already is talking with Seth to do a Klaha song and Kaya to do a Tetsu song. He was tweeting with them the other day. Along with Kozi talking about lunch... Ryux wants to do Baroque but since Mana said it is a hard song to play, who knows.

    I do not know when but there was the mention of June and then September. Whenever, it's in the works for this year. Along with an anniversary event for Moi dix Mois with possibly other people.

    Also, Kaya doing a Tetsu song? This will not end well :P

    I saw the chatter about this on Twitter but I wasn't sure what's really going on with all this. Is Kaya really doing something or was he just joining the conversation? It sounded like Mana was more just asking "What should we play".

    There will be an event. Don't know if Kaya will take part but they are good friends so I would not be surprised if that happened. Mana seems to be very inspired lately. He mentioned anniversary events at the last concert but no specifics at that time. I would not be surprised if one or two former Moi dix Mois members also showed up at that anniversary event since he's been with them lately too.

    I hope it's recorded too. I actually responded on Twitter with that suggestion for fans who could not attend. No idea if it was read or if it will happen. It would be good if he started doing some video again like he use to. It will get people's attention and is nice for the fans. Along with the fact if it's good enough and has most of the performance people would pay for it.

    If it were Freeze Me or 16 no Solitude consider me there! XD But it would probably be a studio release. I could see Kaya doing a good job singing Shojo no Hitomi regardless :)

    Yes please! Ryux also respond to my comment about Kioku to Sora xD Hope they record, studio, show, live, everything they do. A commemorative release as well even if there is no new re-recorded song. At least Mana can restore the old demo tapes and release them.

    I really hope they listen to our suggestions because Mana and the rest are so active in Twitter lately.

    I take it as a good sign. In that perhaps Mana is getting that new MdM album together and is really wanting to tour again. Even tweeted in English. Perhaps discovering he still has a strong fan base is invigorating for him? Love all the appreciation going on for us.

    Ryux is funny and nice. I mentioned Portugal when he was tweeting about wanting to do Baroque. He said it was nice too.

    Yeah Mana wanted Kaya to do Kioku to Sora and Seth to sing something from Bara no Seidou (was it "Saikai no Chi to Bara"?). Who knows what will happen but I do think something will.

    I was wondering how it will work out costume-wise. Although Mana has not worn dresses at the Deep Sanctuary events so I guess it's not a problem if Kaya outdresses him if the event does happen.

    This all sounds great. I'm excited and kind of in shock of how it's already been 25 years.

    Hello first post on here. Im a musician living in and working in Kabukicho so I heard some rumors and when I asked a friend who worked as staff under MDM about the absence of a deep sanctuary event and the talk of sessions of MM songs she said "that talk has grown larger it seems." and smiled mysteriously. So if we have a chance at reunion now is our best bet it seems. The September live is also going to be some kind of limited lottery system for tickets as well.

    The stories they must have ::meev::

    A reunion seems pretty unlikely though because of the whole vocalist issue. Mana tried and failed to find Klaha, and he would never allow a vulgar man ::gaku:: back into the band. I think it's more likely that it'll just be another Deep Sanctuary-type session where they get Seth or Kamijo or someone like that to fill in on vocals for 2 or 3 songs.

    From the little that has been put out by Mana and Ryux recently, the September show is going to be Moi dix Mois and details should be released soon. duo Music Exchange is a smaller venue than what they use for the Deep Sanctuary events.

    Well Mana tweeted that soon we will have more information. The number of tickets is limited ? What does it mean ? Less fan will able to enter (I mean less than for Dis Inferno Oo).

    Well, less than "an ordinary live", compared to the "special event" that this is. What precisely that amounts to, we'll see.

    I'm wondering if this lottery thing for the tickets is what is holding up the announcements since the members know the date, the venue would be most likely booked. Should probably go back to the Moi dix Mois' thread for writing about this show.

    My other thought about this is that Mana is hoping to have something recorded by the time of the concert. It has been happening. Although that wouldn't necessarily delay putting tickets up for sale but perhaps he may want to have something else go along with them like he did for the ESP event? Just guessing with this, could easily be another shirt if that is the plan.

    There is also the issue of contracts if other musicians are joining the concert. Japanese music industry isn't like most other countries. Sometimes it takes many people to say okay to things.

    Just thought I would add these two things to my post.
