If I recall correctly, Kami was the youngest among the members!
In MALICE MIZER photo shoots he would turn over my skirt when I would wear mini skirts (smiles)
Kami…was a mischievous pubescent boy! It was an innocent type of act so it was somewhat sweet.

At the time when Kami joined MALICE MIZER his hair was short, but while looking at it in total amazement, his hair grew out down to his back and it became really glossy long hair! Before I knew it my hair length surpassed his.
A-actually, why was I so attracted to women's clothes? hmm~ its a mystery (smiles)

And then, during the indies time of MALICE MIZER at the "Uruwashiki kamen no shoutaijou" event (Its was a special event where each member did skits, performances, etc…) Kami had the chance to do special effects make up, but (now I think its the late Takadanobaba's Arenos Hall) the night before the event I got a call from Kami saying… "Mana-chaa~n I don't know if I can do a very good job at art make up for that day, so can you come over now and do my make up?" I cheerfully went over to Kami's house and painted half of Kami's face white for art make up… the concept was a mask (two-sided). Its the theme from Kami's early days.

It was like there was a mask under this mask…

He said that I was a make up magician, and so for me it felt something like "Would you like to decide on a course, customer?" (smiles)
[I think] It felt like Kami got into it and could finally sleep safely in the beauty parlor? But I didn't sleep.
Painting the moon on his face and this and that…huhuu didn't I do a really good job? Kami!
Anyway, on that night Kami went to sleep just like that with his art make up on and then proceeded on to the event the next day.
Some how that scene was so cute… Ukeru!
I really can't run out of stories…

Since I can't run out of stories…how about we all noisily gather at the 90's visual kei cosplay holy ground, Harajuku's Jingu Bashi in MALICE cosplay~!!!
(I'm joking)

Well then, we will gather on August 7 at Akasaka BLITZ!

Today I hope you will drink melon type drinks (MAX coffee is good too)
and eat while coming alive with Kami stories!
I hope you will have your fill of the cool drummer Kami with MALICE MIZER CD's, DVD's and even while watching the Shinwa video, etc!
Those of you who can drink alcohol, you can even drink Calpis Milk. Although Kami had a boyish presence, he liked alcohol milk!
Hes cute like that (smiles)

**Translation note: I kept all song/video titles in Japanese as they may be easier to understand in that way. I also kept "Ukeru" in Japanese because if I'm not mistaken I believe its supposed to be a play on the word Mana has often used in the past for Kami, which was "ukyo, ukyo"

Honestly I still don't understand now whether these two years time have gone by quickly or slowly.
Because he was a partner who was always there for almost 10 years and then suddenly he was gone.
K-kun died and then approximately half a year later Ryux joined, and somehow we were able to move forward.
Ryux is a man, but he seems like a younger brother and hes such a reliable guy.
Even now under these conditions fans still can't sort out their feelings, and keeping up emotionally while seeing Moi dix Mois go up on stage must be difficult.
At the lives a scene of K-kun imprinted somewhere in everyone's mind sporadically passes by in the midst of it all, and Ryux has felt he had to enjoy the lives unaffected by it.
He is together with the wicked one.

Of course it might be a complex feeling, but he has been able to change that sadness to smiling faces.
Its been about 1 year since Ryux joined too.
I decided I want to welcome the support Ryux has given me up to now with a group photo on the top page of the Moi dix Mois site.

I want us to engrave this day in our memories today and move forward again as one.

K-kun is probably keeping a kind, no, a proud beast evil eye watching over the 5 of us from behind.

Because K is an eternal Moi dix Mois member.

I headed with the Moi dix Mois members to K-kun's second year memorial service to report on the current status of Moi dix Mois to K-kun.
I have also been in the middle of doing recording work for "Beast side" recently, so I made a request to K-kun that I would like to include his beast spirit.
Just before praying in front of his tomb the wind became strong, but then suddenly it calmed down…
This time at least the mischievous K-kun didn't try to attack me in some way (smiles)
K-kun grew up!

As we returned, I got into the dix formation with the members!
Ryu-kun has work to do in Nagoya this evening, and since he had to finished things up a bit early, we left two spaces open in the dix formation!

Go mad un deux trois dix !!!!!!!!!! (by Beast side)

I think its really horrible that these days continue that the people in Kumamoto and Kyuushuu can't sleep.
I'm reading emails from you all. If you lose those feelings by sending me emails, then please continue to send them to me freely. I always look over them.
You are always near to me in my heart.

This time it was 2 consecutive days called the 2days, so the venues were different for both days, and that made it a clear divide in the concept.
Monophobia, Tentation, etc were songs we tried that Moi dix Mois has not performed before! The key is original. I also had to add in a twin guitar arrangement.
It seems some how Seth-kun's voice range really went UP! He has managed to sing some rather high songs!

You must have been so surprised when I showed up on the 2nd floor on the first day! Since there were a lot of surprises last year on the first floor, it felt like those on the 2nd floor were left out, and it seemed so lonely…This time, those of you on the second floor! I wonder if you were satisfied?(^_-)

Day 2 was completely done in jet black! The Sabbath was resurrected!
Because of the Sabbath, I was happy even if it was more obscene~huhuhu…
Also, were you happy about the Sugi-Sama and Haya-Sama special session?
On this day I was called the tyrant king Satan, so I displayed a tyrant-like pose I have not done before! But it was a little embarrassing!(#^.^#)

And then, I was really happy for the release of the "Game Inferno Ultimate" [book] that I issued on March 19!
Since it is a compilation type book of my gaming life, its a totally timeless edition!
I hope even natural born game fans will read it.
I think it could become a reference book for game history, so if there are any game maniacs around you, please by all means recommend it to them.

Anyway, these 2days were very passionate and it was a fun two nights to have had experienced together!
Thank you for giving me such a grand celebration!

I am rapidly accepting your live thoughts and impressions, etc. Its fun to read the questionnaires!

I'm getting your thoughts on Game Inferno Ultimate too sometimes!

Well, now to look towards album work and DSV!

I think everyone always looks forward to my photos wearing Moi-meme-Moitie in the Gothic&Lolita Bible, but this time I got this from the person in charge

"Every issue we've always requested Mana-Sama x Moi-meme-Moitie pages, but according to the publisher it has been decided that from next issue on those plans will come to an end…"

Thats what they said.
I have always taken part in the Gothic&Lolita Bible since the very first issue over a span of some 10 years, so as you might expect I'm a little sad.

I have been carefully reading through the questionnaires. Everyone's passionate thoughts have really been transmitted to me.
It seems there were a lot of people who came for their first Moi dix Mois live. From here on out I look forward to seeing you again dix!
(The questionnaire doesn't have a cut off date, so for those who want to take a longer time to write feel free to send them in at any time. Its in the right hand column mail form)

This time at Duo the drums were positioned lower down so I think it may have been difficult to see me playing them. I'm a little disappointed!
Also, it was my first time to wear headphones in both ears 🎧 so it was a challenge to perform with Moi dix Mois while I could only hear clicks!!!
Compared to a typical performance session it was really difficult, but I was glad I got to perform one of my own songs~!(^_^)

And, since I had a picture of blue sticks that I had taken in the studio, I imagine there were people who thought, Hes going to use those wooden sticks at the show? Actually, if I used the blue sticks to play the blue paint would have come off and stuck to the snares. I can't just go and defile the drums of Hayato-kun, who loves cleanliness, now can I (smiles)
And then, Ryux's way of drinking "Jack Daniels" was so forceful and then he reflexively spit it all out without even leaving a single remanent ( ゚∀゚)pfft!!He showed us his Hiroshima spirit!
(Rest assured it was just watered down alcohol)
When I watched the video shot of the live, I noticed Sugiya-kun frantically attacked the first balloon. (^O^)Ahaha!! Hes secretly an aggressive person.

Seth-kun has been in [the band] for 10 years now! Hes really had a lot of fighting spirit! and his head-banging is impressive!
However 10 years is amazing…seriously.

 photo IMG_7295-300_zps3j6hptue.jpg
(To congratulate him on 10 years, I gave him a bouquet of 10 roses. Thats Seth-kun's hand)

Also, this time your yelling wasn't very good~. To everyone in front of me who was bad at it, maybe you just think you're trying to be elegant, but please give me more of your voices~ (^o^*)/~
Because its a live! Make it burst more and more with voices that reach the stage even more so as if they could almost make you faint or like they're going to break your ears! huhuhu…

Duo, the venue this time, is the place where K-kun was supposed to stand at last year. I'm sure all 6 of us were probably on stage together. So, I wonder if the howling was him getting up? I've never heard that kind of howling before. ( `-ω-)?hm
Maybe it was was K-kun being mischevious saying "I'm here!" to make an appeal. However, the moment I was going to start playing my guitar for the song I made for K-kun, "Beast Side" my guitar tuning suddenly went haywire...(^_^;A
Its like it was a moderate prank (smiles)

It was a really good live, and we were able to make it a fun end of the year live, and even as it came to a close everyone was in good spirits having fun drinking and singing and getting excited. 🍻 weee〜* ((ヘ(●^д^●)ノ)) Wahaha〜♪
(Well I don't sing though…)

The next live is in March so I want to write more information later on about HP preceding [tickets] for the 2DAYS.
Next year will be a shining year!

p.s. Thank you for the letters and presents.
