    I own that tape... but sealed!
    I don't want to unseal it, but I really want to see what's inside :'(
    Sadly it's already sold, I was looking for an unsealed copy lol.
    I also own their first demo tape, "scéne d'amour...", which is rarer, and I'm looking for their decades later 2015 album "FANTASIA".

    Not surprised since they were signed to his label, or produced by him, or whatever it was. I never heard the tape myself since I wasn't quite curious enough to buy a copy, but I'll be interested to listen once you've got it ripped.

    Oh thank you so much!
    I could share there scéne d'amour... demo tape with pleasure, the tape surprisingly got band pictures inside which is really neat. But first I need to learn 2 rip better :P all of my rips are the wrong speed for some reason.

    Is it only your rips that are in the wrong speed ? Or is the cassette player always playing at a wrong speed ? If it's the latter you'll have to buy a new one (or repair your cassette player)

    Yup the cassette deck always makes the pitch a little higher, so I assume it's just old lol.
    But my dad he says he has a super good cassette deck in the attic, he used to make a lot of demo tapes in the 80s-90s as a musician with my mother.
    So when he finds it he'll give it to me!

    Considering my experiences (I found out while being with the sellers that their old cassette decks didn't work... twice) I think you're probably better off just buying a refurbished cassette deck. I think the bands on most cassette decks are past their expiration date in 2018. I hope it still works though !

    https://item.mercari.com/jp/m85094568537/ The CD is on sale here. The price seems fair considering it was ¥ 10,800 on Puresound. Sadly the CD was only sold by mailorder.
    Btw I wonder if Freesia is a cover of the Lareine song ::zoom::

    Edit :

    Also there's a signed copy of an Amadeus CD for 2999 yen

    https://item.mercari.com/jp/m87259749193/

    Edit 2 :

    https://item.mercari.com/jp/m52907744739/ is this a good price for a first edition Voyage Sans Retour ? No idea (it's 4999 yen)

    I'd say it is the average, I have seen it sell for a lot more. I saw one in store recently for a bit more, but can't remember if it was PureSound or Closet Child in Tokyo or Osaka.

    Holy F******* Shit! Heutre you're a literal angel!!!
    I have AFTER IMAGE (same members as AMADEUS) signed CD in my collection, and every AMADEUS item except a FC distributed CD. Even their rare 100-limited demo tape.
    AMADEUS is one of my favourite bands ever! I have postcards and never go on sale (got from another collector)
    I was missing AMADEUS signatures, since I want the signatures of all the bands I collect.... I have AFTER IMAGE, LAREINE, MALICE MIZER, New Sodmy, and more.
    This is amazing!!!! Thank you so much heutre!
    And the FANTASIA too, I sent an email to my JP friend to order the items for me (he does that with Mercari).
    I have given up on searching for AMADEUS and CHARLES since those are such common names a lot of different stuff shows up, and almost never something of the actual bands comes up.
    PLEASE NO ONE ELSE GET THESE!!
    I got my Voyage 1st press for 6800JPY so this is pretty good. I've seen it often for more.

    Edit. LOL Freesia is a GACKT song XD and it's not the same

    Someone should PM that guy who was asking about obis on all the releases, he'd probably flip for that.

    I got the Laliene flyer!
    I'm sooo happy with it. I thought I would never get my hands on that flyer, I've been looking for it for so long.
    Now I have two flyers and one poster with the old "Laliene" logo on it. I think that might be all, since they discarded that logo pretty fast for an uppercase one. (LALIENE). Any oldest logo stuff is near impossible to get. I almost got a heart attack when I saw that flyer show up lol. Yes it costed a ton of money, but in my eyes it has that value.
