Yeah, sounds like a new song to me. I'll go look through my heap of magazine clippings later and see if they ever had any setlists that might tell what it is.
Misashito told me that they saw song unknown song name in track list in the past, so that would be great if you find anything ♡

I do that so people can view the links without having a Twitter account or logging into anything. Nobody should be on Twitter anyway.
I see! and yes I agree hahaha

I dunno, personally when Lupee got into that Grimace outfit is about when I decided Pleur was a bridge too far to... wherever that bridge was going XD
Fair LOLL Noble and Lupee is what got me into Pleur in the first place personally hahaha I love Grimace XD

Well, here's what I found and took some lousy phone pics of.

pleur_may99_1.jpg pleur_may99_2.jpg

There is at least one unreleased song, "hanabira". But there's no way of telling if that's the song from the video.

By the way, it looks like Mana isn't the only "Youkai Ningen Bemu" fan :lol:

Then came the second part of the story. First, Kyon-chan and Noble made a friendly entrance. While they tossed candy to the audience and interacted with them, suddenly Kuro Pie appeared!! Faced with this unexpected arrival, the two of them fled to the corner. Kuro Pie was holding "Evil Tools" that he intended to use to make the other members evil like him. The wily Kuro Pie said to Kyon-chan "You can't do a thing against me" and managed to put an evil cape on her. "Whatever kind of animal you are, you can't win", he said to Noble, tying a butterfly necktie on him. Then he used a magic pistol (?) to put Reeno and Kuruto (who had arrived on the scene) to sleep together. Then, as he said "Dariiiii", the next song, the nostalgic "Youkai Ningen Bemu" theme started! (But did anyone in the audience know what it was??)

Pleur lives were interesting, sounds like XD

So recently I've been translating the interviews of Pleur, because trying to do it is better than not trying at all, and I've been wanting to know what they talked about for years haha
It's probably full of errors, but if anyone wants to check them out or help, I put them all here : https://docs.google.com/document/d/19DelAUTSCxj8VdkHinis-Xacgi_oFCTq0yGllnVDSbQ/edit?usp=sharing

I also listed the interviews and magazine I might be missing, and I listed the ones I wanted to do for Da'vid as well

When I had my fansite (that I would like to revive eventually haha, but I lost everything, so it will be a lot of work.) I had all the lyrics of pleur in kanjis and did translations for them, I actually found back all the translations I did back then, and I'm trying to correct them to the best of my abilities. That said I realized that I can't find the kanjis for MINUET anywhere anymore, does anyone either have the scan for Kreis 1999 or Kreis 2000...FOR DEAR (I assume the lyrics are in there since I did have the lyrics at some point), or the lyrics on their computer somewhere? I would be really grateful haha

This is pretty thorough :shock: I don't have time to read through it all now but I'll check these out when I have a chance.
What's that thing about Eruze going by a different name?
Haha I tried to at least! And thank you! Looking forward for your input <3
The Eruze thing was this picture we found on twitter :

I thought it was from this thread, but maybe it's from my discord conversation with misashito haha

thank you so very much for this, very interesting to read things I've tried to piece together for years. Hope these guys and girl are all doing good today.
Also not sure if this was an error or on purpose but I can't access the live report translated link? says I need to request access

Wow everybody. First off hi!! I just discovered that Natten Tengoku VHS rip on youtube that you all shared a couple years ago (idk how i glossed over it when it was originally posted here, I have logged in at least twice since then lol) & second off I know what that mystery song is in the video.

I remember years and years ago when I was still into v kei and really into pleur I tried to learn as much as I could about them and remember finding numerous live reports buying magazines and discovered at least two unreleased songs known as Hanabira and Sunadokei. I also had the lyrics to these two songs from an archive of the pleur website and the lyrics at the end of Hanabira line up with this video.
here is an excerpt of the lyrics in the video, the end of the chorus of Hanabira:
終わる頃に降り出す 春の雨ははかなく 長く
見失う 君の前に僕を~


This has gotta be it right? or am I mishearing things lol. Anyways, I was so happy to see something new to me of pleur after so many years of nothing. I learned about this VHS when I was younger and tried so hard to track down a copy or rip for years and gave up when I mostly got out of VK a few years back. Now the only holy grail of pleur material I can think of are the full tapes the band members have of their lives that were teased on their twitter years back. Kyon tweeted something about maybe sharing them one day but would have to ask Kuruto, can't exactly remember verbatim lol.

Nowadays I hardly think of VK but certain bands will pop up on my shuffle (like pleur did today) and it brings me back and makes me want to check up on things. Hope everybody is doing good. Sending peace to everyone. :grin:

Oooh That's so nice!
Now that you mention it... Sunadokei sounds familiar.. Nowaday I only know this archieve of the website but it's only for their last release and Kuro Pie, do you have the link of the other one? https://web.archive.org/web/20010515091000/http://www.newbit.com/members/rsc/
Thank you for confirming it's Hanabira!

We all wish Kyon or Kuruto would give us news for that VHS rip lol... *crossing fingers*

Otherwise, recently I've been buying magazines and doing more translations, I did a little WordPress page, it's not complete yet tho haha : https://contedefee0109.wordpress.com/
And in the Wedge 2, I found these pictures of Kuro Pie I never seen before!

wow I don't think I have ever seen these either.. so cool. As for the archive, I don't have or remember where I got them but I can paste them here since I copied the lyrics to a txt document years back, here's what I have:

はなびら

なん色も色付けられた 景色が
いとコマ ゆらり 落ちて行く
花びら 散る

水面に沈む世界に生まれて
静かに ツタで繋いで 声から知る

しゃくとり虫は変わる僕は蝶に鮮やかにきっと
でも 変わる姿にも 届かなく
終わる頃に降り出す 春の雨ははかなく 長く
見失う 君の前に僕を~

砂時計

紙に書いた言葉をくり待ち合わせる場所に
砂時計が止まるくらいの速さで
胸がおくようになっていたあの時
流れてきた昨日と変わらずうつした歌を

あなた告げる二つの意味を
絵に浮かべずっとそこに自分の思いを乗せて
君の想い出をたどる絵を
目に浮かべずっとそこに自分みたいに残して

あぁこの胸にあるこのあがれ
いつかきっと・・・そっと開け

Boy I would LOVE to hear these songs one day. I hope they come to their senses and share this stuff before its gone forever but I highly doubt it, doesn't seem like a common practice in the vk world.

I had flirted with the idea to make a pleur fansite back then (I think I even began to design a homepage at one point) and wanted to include all the weird finds I made on the net but never got around to it. Maybe one day.

Thank you!! So nice to be able to read them TT^TT

They probably never recorded them so they probably don't have them either way… Maybe one of them (or maybe both??) could be on Kyon's VHS, but who knows...?

That would be so nice!! I did want to revive my da'vid/pleur/kuro pie fansite (porte-a-porte) but never got around that, since the original files were lost... So for now I'm using my wordpress to put the info I gathered and weren't online anymore haha (and I wanted to add more bands as well)
I would love to see a pleur fansite! <3

I hope they did. One day hopefully it will all be out there. And I really appreciated your work/translations and material you shared, was the first time I saw some of those things.
