    Do you mean " we are waiting in hope for your next album?" XD Since I don't want him to think we will die of fright after his new album is announced, hehe.

    Maybe we should say "Everyone from a Malice Mizer web forum" as opposed to "Scape forums? So the letter would be:

    What do you guys think?

    But think 'good luck' sounds a bit too simple, what do you think of 'yours faithfully and with the best wishes from ~names~'

    in my opinion i'd write instead of 'for your next album release' only 'for your next release'

    Writing Malice Mizer forum is better than writing Scape Forums, but Mana is in Moi dix Mois at the moment and writing Malice Mizer probably would sound as if we're Mana tards who just pay a little attention to Moi dix Mois because of Mana.
    When there is something about him on TV, in a magazine or where ever and he is introduced, he is always introduced as Mana from Malice Mizer and while I doubt that he doesn't like Malice Mizer anymore or isn't proud of it maybe, wouldn't it be better to show appreciation for what he is doing now?
    That we indeed do acknowledge that he has a new band and that we know this band even though it's not as famous as Malice Mizer?

    "Everyone at a Malice Mizer and Moi dix Mois web forum" maybe?
    I know it's getting longer and longer but...
    What's your opinion?

    And I agree on the "Good luck" phrase. Good luck is something you wish a friend for a test. The test could work out but it could be horribly mean and they fail.
    But..does Mana need "Good luck" for Moi dix Mois? Maybe showing faith in him would be better?
    "Best wishes for a bright future.

    Yours Faithfully,

    [names]"



    And yes, I mean that we're looking forward to his next release.
    I was just mentioning the "wait in fear" because that's what Mana always tells us to do when something comes up.
    It's a little more personal and more fit to his character.
    In case it sounds stupid to you guys: "Mana-sama, we are all supporting Moi dix Mois and are looking forward to your next release". Like that maybe?
    Or just the "we are waiting patiently for your next release"?

    I agree with that :)

    And i think this personal phrase:

    is much better than the other one you mentioned Lardeen :D

    You'd better don't write "we wait in fear" or something similar. It is better to use "we are waiting patiently". I don't think Mana will understand what we mean if we write "wait in fear". His english is probably not perfect so there can be missunderstandings. for example, if you would say "wait in fear" in my language, it would sound ridiculous. it would mean, that you DON'T WANT the new release would come out. there are things that are different in languages so we MUST write him as clear as possible.

    it doesn't mean we can write "wait in fear" if Mana writes it. Maybe it is written in a joke form, but it can't be used in all the situations (i am sure, you WON'T understand what i mean...)

    I can't leave Kanon out, since it would be a bit rude [and I'm also a Kanon fan =P] so how does this sound? Also, we can't afford to keep changing it too many times, so I think the next change should be it.

    I must go soon anyway. Again, Thank you very much Yun for offering to bring the letter in! Have a nice night everyone!

    and for the texte since noone clearly made a final decision this is what i'm going to print :


    @flowers i won't mention scape ^^ I think i'll say something like "this letter is from some of your internationnal fans that are on a forum dedicated to MdM and Malice Mizer."
    I's okay if my english is not correct because i'll say this in french since i'm sur we'll have a translator like for kanon ^^!



    I hope everyone will be okay with that because it's half past midnight I still have a lot to do before going to bed and I'm going to wake up tomorow at 5 X_x ... so in 4 hours DDDDDD=!!!!

    Ugh yeah true 'XD
    Writing wait in fear in English might come across wrong.

    Yun, that version sounds good! =D
    I only would change the "hopes your projects" to "hope your projects" ;D Grammar thing.

    Have fun there! :grin:

    Wait so...everyones so thankful to Mana for international Mon Amour not running like it was supposed to, even after staff continued to process money, and after some months has finally recognized it, but hasn't necessarily done anything yet?

    Come on, people. You paid for the stuff, you should have been receiving it in the first place. He should be thanking all of you who -want- to stay a member of Mon Amour...

    OMG! I starting to beleive that probles are solved!

    I didn't recieve anything, but that probably because they shipped only up to August editions and I became Platinum member only in August.
