Ok, the single came out today; so, Mana appears in the credits?
other post xD...
here are the 2 PVs http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FMkIWyG4gw8 and http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jiMxhXG_f6I
Well, that was the Sueeeeeeeper appearance of our dear Mana. The Luis PV remember me the Philosopher PV from Hizaki GP for the use of plastic roses xDD
I haven't gotten the single yet or heard it, might try to see if they have it in Kinokuniya tonight
My copy arrived today, I bought the regular edition.
Basically all the songs are credited as Lyrics & Music: KAMIJO / Arrangement: Ateller Temple.
Ateller Temple is listed as being KAMIJO, Yasuharu Ikeda and more
No mention of Mana anywhere or who any of the musicians are. Disappointed by the lack of names because I really was curious who were the backup musicians.
I sent in a question to the U Stream event asking him who the back up musicians are. I also told him to say I like big butts and I cannot lie.
- "Guess who's behind you!"
I thought the Mana appearance was pretty awesome, but now I just wish even more that he'd make some PVs for Moi dix Mois. Well... maybe someday it'll happen, but if not, I'd settle for a new DVD. Make it happen Mana!
I just bought the last limited edition (with poster and DVD) copy of the single on CDJapan. I'll be sure to post scans and etc when it arrives if anyone is interested.
edit: I unknowingly bought the "type B" limited edition that has an interview dvd and no PVs. I'm so fucking . I only bought it so I could see Mana in high definition.
I ordered the regular edition so I could get the extra song. It's on the way via SAL, so who knows when it'll get here.
I got in the single yesterday and... I dunno, it filled me with ennui.
"Grazioso" seems like something that Malice Mizer might have been able to make something good out of, but it just turned out like some sort of goofy dinner-theater thing. I'll give it a few more listens and see if it grows on me, but I'm not overly impressed.
I think the single is just too short, the title track I really like though. Everything else is just forgettable fluff.
Grazioso is just too short to be even be rememberable and the last track with the moon speak title is just not interesting at all. Louis is definitely the highlight of the single.
On the fence about future releases, I don't think I'll buy another single and probably the same with any future album release. I don't want to fork out 3000yen to end up with an album that only has two good songs and a bunch of forgettable songs full of flat nasally vocals. At least that's why we have YouTube.
I think the single was pretty bad :/ I wrote a review for swedish JaME and it was really hard not saying anything mean about XD The title track was the most boring one in my opinion... the last song reminded me of Lareine and New Sodmy a bit.
I just got my limited edition version 1.
It did not come with a poster.
It did contain a card with a picture (I will upload in an edit).
The booklet was nearly identical to that of version 2.
The only difference worth note is that the DVD with the music videos is Blue, while every other disc (Single1, DVD Interview/Making of Kamijo's Audio Recording, Single2) in Louis has been Red.
I think it is nice that The only disc that Mana appears on is Blue while all the others with just Kamijo are Red
Trailer for the new mini album -> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pIzFoYvl3g8
xD is the same music as usual!!!
yeah...I wonder if he'll never get tired of it X'D I can barely hear a difference between the songs....
Why doesn't he try out different styles now that he's gone solo? :-/ I expected it to be more like lareine but this sounds like versailles to me. The only song that really stood out for me was the last one.
The mistake is expecting him to get back to Lareine sounds when he was not really the brain of that band anyway
If anyone wants to hear something remotely similar to what would Lareine sound nowadays they should have a listen at EMIRU's long-awaited album MYTH -遥かなる旅路-, Lareine's true main
I wasn't really expecting much when I got it but man, taking out the instrumental crap, the actual songs are really good imo.
Oh yeah, I forgot about that Emiru album - it's out now, isn't it? Maybe I'll pick up a copy.

edit: I quote myself from the MdM thread:
when I wrote that they are only assumptions, and turned out to be true!!! xDDDDDD someone from japan is reading thiiis!
Oh wow... I can't get over the band members faces at 0:31... "OMFG, We're playing METAL!!! "
And I began to feel like Mana took it a bit far with all the darkness
But Kamijo is really overdoing the vampire theme
Can someone just let him do a remake of Interview with the vampire, togheter with Tom Cruise and maybe he'll finally let the vampire stories go
