    I suggest you're watching: Grand Pain, Saikai no Hana, Billet ~osankai natsu no binsen~, Fuyu Tokyo and Fiancialles. If you're looking for the modern Lareine then you can only watch "Image of Never Cage" because it's the only PV I know which includes all 4 current members: Kamijo, Mayu, Emiru, Kazumi.

    By the way: Am I right when I think that Kazumi is playing the role of "Scarlet Majesty"? Because his pendant is similar to the pendant on the Scarlet Majesty DVD.

    Dammit. I want that Izabel Varosa song...

    But as for Lareine, I haven't heard too much of their stuff. I've only heard maybe, three songs? They aren't bad, but I haven't exactly been following them like I do with other artists. Ever since I heard Izabel Varosa's songs, I've been to their website and that seemed to rekindle some the little bit of interest I once had.

    Shoxx's publisher DOES ship overseas, and you can buy back issues of Arena37c and Shoxx through them, along with specials that they've published on certain artists - however for some reason the Lareine book isn't there. Maybe it will be listed after they finally ship out the preorders?

    I wish they'd release another live DVD, but they haven't been doing a big tour or anything lately, have they?

    (and I'm irritated that I preordered Never Cage before the deluxe edition was announced and so missed out on the DVD. :| :| :|)

    All CDs I got of them are Fierte no Umi to Tomo ni Kieyu,Crystal Lethos and Never Cage, but I really like them. Most from my favourite songs are from Never Cage.

    @Illaparatzo-sama or Lydia

    The last really great thing was their 10th anniversary show on 26.03.2005. Lareine is going to release a DVD of this show but this is supposed to be a gift for the concer visitors at 30.06.2005 in Shibuya O-EAST when they play a conceptual Oneman-Live.
    This sucks, but maybe they sell the 10th anniversary afterwards? I hope so.

    The 6/30 present DVD is a "live document" one, which I think means it's going to be quite short. It'll probably have only a few excerpts from the 3/26 concert. They wouldn't give us a DVD of the whole concert for "free". (I put "free" in quotes because every time Lareine includes a bonus CD or DVD with a concert, the ticket price is higher than usual by at least 1,000 yen. *LOL*) The two FC-only "live document" videos of last year's Kinema Club shows were only around 30 minutes each of excerpt footage and cost something like 4,000 yen (each) so I will be very surprised indeed if the 6/30 DVD is anything more than a quick souvenir. I'm sure it's going to be a nice memento, but I really don't think it will be an "OMG everyone needs to have this!" item.

    Lareine had a break from 2001 to 2002 and Kazumi replaces Machi who was the only one who didn't returned after the "Saikai no Hana" concert. They're back in Buisness since 2002 as far as I know.

    I mean with my complaint about the Giveaway: "Why aren't they releasing the full concert instead of only extracts?"

    Nox_Solace:
    Lareine was not at Dis Inferno II, it was only Kamijo and Mayu. They performed "Baroque" with Sanaka. I don't know why it's listed in the band history because it wasn't a Lareine appearance.

    Akurei:
    Thanks for the link to my site! Another one is Niji's:
    http://www.geocities.com/emeraudesea/

    Akai Nami:
    To put it bluntly, Lareine isn't in a position now to easily release PVs and live videos. They're on their own label, Applause Records, and have considerably less financial and staff support than Midi:Nette, Loop Ash, or many other indies labels. It would surprise me if they had the money to front the costs of producing a full-length video now. Maybe they will be able to do one sometime, but I think right now they're probably tied up with trying to work on new songs for a CD and arrangements for a summer tour. (The summer tour hasn't been officially announced yet, but Kamijo mentioned preparing for it in his online diary)

    @inertia
    I just thought that their 10th anniversary was a good oppertunity to make a live DVD. Thanks for clearing the situation of Applause Records. I didn't knew that they're smaller than Midi:Nette.
    We should be happy because Lareine is still active. I will wait for new Lareine stuff.

    Oh God... *o* I love Bara wa Utsukushiku Chiru (Only after playing it over a dozen times :/) I think I'm officially a Lareine fan.

    Is "Bara wa Utsukushiki Chiru" the whole name? I don't think it is...

    That was that the name of the opening song (or was it ending song?) of the anime "Rose of Versailles." ^_~

    Yeah, opening. And "Bara wa Utsukushiku Chiru" is the full title.

    I like Lareine's version a lot more than the original one, but that's probably just because of my preference for male vocals...
