August 23rd, Conifer Forest.
NEVER ENDING UNIVERSE…
We’ll hit all 10 years!
Let’s play for the Alice Nine up until now, and for the future Alice Nine!!!!
Shou’s statement on twitter, 14.8.19
It’s confirmed that we as a band, Alice Nine, will officially leave PS COMPANY on August 25th, 2014.
We’ve grown up so much, from our fledgling start; there’s a lot of memories. I’m overcome with emotions; but with our 10-year anniversary here, it’s perfect timing for us to graduate and take another step with the aim of further growth.
I’m sure you’re all worrying, but I can affirm that our bonds as a band are stronger than they’ve ever been in these past 10 years, as well as our bonds with everyone who has supported us. I feel that taking this step, starting over from scratch and going back to basics is perfect for our 10th anniversary.
As such we will perform at Conifer on August 23rd with a smile.
I wanna burn it up, and give back to everyone we are leaving at our office; regardless of whether or not you’ll be there, please lend us your voice. For this culmination of 10 years, for Alice Nine’s first steps into our future. FujiQ is first. We’re gonna burn it all.
Saga’s blog 14.8.19: Something important
We’ve been working hard at this three-legged race of ours, and we’ve resolved to leave PS COMPANY after our 10th anniversary live at FujiQ Conifer Forest on August 23rd.
Rather than a termination of our contract, it was something we had all discussed over a long period of time, weighing all our options, and this came as a valid answer.
We’ve made it these ten years; and undeniably we had our struggles with the company’s president and staff. The choice to leave was not a simple one. We as a band wanted to get back to basics in the truest sense, to what Alice Nine really is.
There is no security as a band; we chose to walk this difficult road.
And with our ten year milestone coming up, that became the drive we needed to do this.
Whenever you want to start something new, there will always be pain and struggles associated with it. But because of those you want to do your best to try and overcome it.
However, with us not being able to make appearances for the time being, I had to say something now.
How long that ‘for the time being’ is going to be is something I can’t answer, but I can say it can be just for the not-too-far-off future.
We are not disbanding.
I just wanted to give a simple answer before we step out on our own.
As for our 10-year live on August 23rd, I feel we’re gonna go all out.
I know you’ll all be worried for various reasons, but please wait for Alice Nine. We’ll give a powerful performance to remember.

THE BOOK IS IN!
Look at it! It turned out so great!!! THANKS TO ALL OF YOU! We couldn’t do it without you! I’ll be adding a card from another fan into a pocket it came with, and then it’ll be wrapped up and ready to go with me to Japan on Tuesday. I’ll keep you all posted on its journey!
Thank you all!—robin.
Hi, everyone! Sorry it’s been silent over here for awhile. Life has gotten really busy! reblogging this from a910th to show more of you what we’ve been working on—the Alice Nine 10th anniversary fan book! Looks great, doesn’t it? This is going with me to Japan on Tuesday, to be delivered to the band at their 10th anniversary live. I’ll take pictures if I can!
If/when the craziness dies down a bit, I’ll try to do more translations when I can.
LIVE REPORT: Alice Nine - Asia Tour 2014 [Supernova Symphonia] @ HardRock Coliseum (Singapore) ~ Visual Kei Heaven
Hi, guys—one of the live reporters at VKH (the site I’ve been translating for) posted a live report of the band’s performance in Singapore, and I wanted to share it. Enjoy!
Saga’s blog, 14.6.20: good morning.
I took a shower, and I’m refreshed.
I’m the type of person whose day just can’t start until they’ve taken a shower.
Just about to head out to work.
This is the real deal.
I’m a little nervous! Lol
Japan vs. Greece
They can’t lose.
If they lose, they’ll be eliminated.
Watching a bit of England vs. Uruguay now, and they can’t lose, either!
As a fan of premium league Arsenal, I want them to do their best!!
Note: Saga is hosting a special episode of Alice9 Channel today starting at 6:45am Japan time, where you can watch the Japan vs. Greece World Cup match with him. Scheduled for two hours. Don’t miss it!http://live.nicovideo.jp/watch/lv183350061

14.5.29: We’re leaving!
The time has come for us to set out on our journey.
It’s our first time going to China.
I still have these images of China in my head from Drunken Master 2, the scene with fight in the fish market… It’s only because I haven’t gone there before.
Our manager says we’re going to a pretty large city. I’m looking forward to it.
I went to my usual hairdresser yesterday, and while I was there, there was this young kid saying they were gonna go to Luna Sea’s 25th anniversary live tomorrow, and it made me happy.
14.5.29: Hong Kong
Hong Kong is 33℃
Summer is coming early.
And I am already having food problems.
I’ve finally started putting on weight, and I’ve been firming up a bit… But it seems like I’m going to lose weight again.
I just wanna try to maintain 65kg!
My goal is 71kg.
I can’t answer everything, but I’m the type who will sit and read each and every reply to all my tweets. (I never have any idea on which to react to, though.)
Sorry for lack of translations!
Between my new, longer work schedule and my comic work, I haven’t had a lot of time to post translations. Unfortunately, updates may be sporadic for awhile, but I will do my best to keep this blog active! I am also currently working with Visual Kei Heaven, a visual kei news site, as a translator, posting things about various bands. Please feel free to check it out! http://visualkeiheaven.us
For those of you who asked for song translations, I haven’t forgotten! They will get done!
Now it’s time for our ASIA TOUR! First up is China! We’re off. To all our fans, we’re heading out! We’re heading out.
