In light of UNiTE's new look, I decided to update my headers and journal layout. When the page is refreshed, the header will show one of three new images.
Much more of a neutral color palette compared to before, which is a nice change. I also updated my the code on my profile page, took tumblr link away (stopped using it ages ago--didn't really get into it as much as I thought I would), and kind of cleaned some things up.

As for UNiTE's preview, I have to say out of all three, I think this one's the best. It's quite catchy and I really want to hear the whole thing.

Now DIV: Chisa sounds great and DIV isn't letting me down. I didn't love it the first time I heard it, but it's quite good.
Personally, I could do without that bit from 2:50-3:15 though...

On a side note, Shogo and Chobi fit in better with DIV than they did with xTRiPx in my opinion. I do like some xTRiPx stuff, but their recent album was .. ehhh.. very so-so. Too much of that DJ crap than I would like, but not horrible.

I guess I'm going to post DIV stuff more regularly now, too because.. why not?


And they have a new single coming out in July titled ゴールデンキネマ劇場 (Golden Kinema Theater) I wonder if they meant cinema...?
Seeing as their last few releases have been really good, I don't think they will disappoint with this one!

First off, I must confess that originally I really didn't like Chisa's voice at all. Not a big surprise considering he didn't actually start out as a vocalist--he was on strings and just replaced the vocalist le-a..le:a(?)  when he left NEXX.
When DIV released Mudai no Document with ANSWER on it,  my first thoughts were that the song itself was really quite good, but would be even better with a different vocalist. Didn't care too much for the other songs
Natsu no Yukue comes out: whoa I love it, despite how similar Hotarubi and Natsu no Yukue sound. And, although auto tune is a bit of a touchy subject for me, it suits Chisa's voice in milky latte. Ultimately, that single became my most played at that time.
Sotsugyou is released: SEASONS is incredible. Seriously. I was completely thrown by how much better Chisa sounded compared to ANSWER. The other 2 tracks are also really great. I mean, I could do without the absolutely unnecessarily drawn out ending of Tokyo Necropolis Hakubutsukan (It sounds like someone's snoring....?!) but otherwise, awesome.

As for Taste of Life, when I heard the preview the first time, I already knew I was going to love it with the piano melding in with a light, catchy tune. The video is... very strange... I actually caught myself paying more attention to what types of fonts they were using (like marker felt, slab serif, bauhaus..ok wtf)..and the song of course. It has a bit of a childish feel to it with all those random effects, but I guess some could find that fun or whatever. It's a great song regardless and that's all that matters to me.

Now to patiently wait for my copy.

Sticking with the whole typography-collage-ish theme again.
Edit: Finally! I got the right code down and so now you'll see one of four headers each time you refresh! I don't really know why I spend so much time on a blog I don't really use often/is rarely visited, but oh well! Ahhhh I'm so happy I finally got it to work^^


I am liking the new OHP a lot--it's very clean and straightforward.

I've never joined a fan club so I'm not sure what to expect. I know some are crazy expensive to maintain a membership for and/or only offer things that benefit fans in Japan i.e. early ticket sales or FC events...
They already announced a FC members only live -aka if you don't live there, then this means absolutely nothing- so right now it looks less like an international type FC, but eh maybe something else will come up in the near future.

Maybe I'm just being overly optimistic, but I'm keeping my fingers crossed for an overseas (more specifically, East Coast, USA) tour/show/thing...not saying it's very likely, but one can always hope!
Or maybe they're going major...mixed feelings on that.
What do you, possibly-invisible-or-nonexistent-person, think?

Prefer this type of look over their other overly colorful one. But I must say...Icchi's hair (or rather the top/front part) is.... (how to describe...) interesting....
