I apologize to anyone who may have found out about the KUBANA live streaming on this blog and waited for the Moi dix Mois concert. What happened was the information of posted on the KUBANA site was misleading, so I was as much in the dark about the information as everyone else.
Since the site said they would be broadcasting the festival live, my first thought was "Why didn't Moi dix Mois announce this information?" but then I began to wonder if they even knew about it. Regardless, I thought to myself "well if Moi dix Mois does show up in the end and nobody knows about it, I feel like I'll regret not saying anything..." I saw other posts floating around the internet about the live streaming before I even decided to post it, and I even considered not saying anything, but that feeling of "what if" kept sticking with my conscience.
In the end I posted about it because I didn't want fans to miss a potential chance to watch their favorite band.
Although I usually don't trust any sources that don't come directly from Moi dix Mois, it seems in some cases even I can be mislead from time to time!! (^^;; )
But I suppose thats happens when another organization is in charge of everything and situations can be changed in an instant. Its kind of like how all of a sudden Moi dix Mois had an autograph session at KUBANA and yet nobody was informed of this until the day of the live. Theres a lot of confusion involved when it comes to things like festivals...
Anyway, since there was a lot of misunderstanding concerning the subject I figured it would be a good idea to address it.
By the way, I started working on Game Lab translations again and I can't wait to share them because I have a commentary I am really excited about adding to it!! As soon as its finished it will be posted on here, so I hope everyone looks forward to it!!
This month's issue is on Tomb Raider Definitive Edition. According to Monologue†Garden, this Tomb Raider article is more or less a report about the game since its one of Mana's favorites.
As always, once I get a chance it will eventually be translated...
In other news, another tweet was posted by Mana earlier today on the official Moi dix Mois twitter.
無事に現地に着きました。 なかなかの長旅でした〜 Mana / Moi dix Mois— Moi dix MoisOfficial (@M_d_M_official) August 15, 2014
The translation is: We have safely arrived on-site. It was a very long trip~ Mana / Moi dix Mois
If more tweets show up while Moi dix Mois is in Russia I will continue to update with translations on here.
Also, if you cannot attend KUBANA don't forget to watch their online broadcasting. Hopefully we will get to see some coverage of Moi dix Mois on there.
As promised, I wanted to keep up with translating the Moi dix Mois twitter as it updates. Here is the newest tweet.
今日は、朝から潮風を浴びながらリハーサル。 21時からは、Moi dix Moisサイン会！ そしていよいよ22:30からは、KUBANAをMoi dix Mois色へと… Mana / Moi dix Mois— Moi dix MoisOfficial (@M_d_M_official) August 16, 2014
Today starting from this morning there will be rehearsal as we bathe in the salty sea breeze. There will be an autograph session from 21:00!
And then finally from 22:30 Moi dix Mois will go to color KUBANA... Mana/Moi dix Mois
8/17 New Twitter Update
KUBANA FESで出逢えたみんなへ とても楽しかったです♪ 刺激的な一夜をありがとう！ Mana / Moi dix Mois— Moi dix MoisOfficial (@M_d_M_official) August 17, 2014
To everyone we met at KUBANA FES
It was very fun♪
Thank you for such a stimulating night!
Mana/Moi dix Mois
M_d_M_official: それでは日本の皆さま、行ってきまーす♪ Mana / Moi dix Mois— Moi dix MoisOfficial (@M_d_M_official) August 15, 2014
The translation is simply "Well now everyone in Japan, I'm leaving~♪ Mana / Moi dix Mois"
I imagine by this time they must have finally arrived.
However, the main point of this entry is for those who can't be at the Kubana festival, there is live broadcasting of the festival and concerts! Moi dix Mois performs Saturday August 16 from 11:00 pm - midnight Russian time, which is about 4:00-5:00 am Japan time. If information serves me correct, the festival can be watched live on the following youtube channel ↓↓↓
Theres also a link to information on the public broadcasting on the official Kubana site.
Hopefully now everyone who wants to will be able to be a part of the live, even if its simply by watching online, will be able to see it!
8月16日、ロシアの現地時間でMoi dix Moisの演奏は23:00〜0:00（日本の現地時間、午前4:00〜5:00)
Thank you so much to everyone who has sent me birthday wishes today!! ( ´ ▽ ` )ﾉ
It was a little disappointing waking up to a typhoon, and then my phone resetting itself...but in the end today turned out wonderful!!
First off, I wanted to get my birthday gift from my parents!!
I know that probably sounds really strange, but since my parents are in the US and I'm in Japan, usually what happens is they let me choose what I want on my own, but of course we already discussed what it was before hand. Since it was an expensive gift I was planning on paying for a part of it, but I was told "NO!! WE will buy it for you!!" by my mother...
My parents are really great!（人´∀`）
So after the typhoon had died down for a little while I made my way to Shibuya!
A giant Maleficent poster was standing out amongst all the signs so I couldn't resist taking a photo.♥
Anyway, eventually after some walking around and doing various things, I made it to my target location-- the electronics shop.（￣ー＋￣）
Quickly after I made my way back to my apartment with all my excitement ready to unveil it!!!
My new Playstation 4!!!
The game I chose is Assassin's Creed IV Black Flag. I've wanted this game ever since its debut at E3 in 2013 so I'm more than excited to start playing it!
I also would really love to own Child Of Light, but unfortunately I couldn't find it at any of the game shops I went to today so I will more than likely end up downloading it from the online shop.
By the time I got home I was starving for dinner, so I ended up treating myself out to the Pikachu Cafe.
I had really hoped on a day like today it wouldn't be so crowded, but I must have waited in line for 2 hours...(;ﾟ∀ﾟ)
It was worth the wait though, and the view was extremely interesting from where I was sitting!
For those who don't know, the Pikachu cafe (and Pokemon XY Museum) is in Roppongi Hills in the "skyview" tower, so you're on the 52nd floor. I love Roppongi Hills and their exhibitions, so I've been to this area a lot, but I've never seen it on a day like today.
Usually its easy to see the far reaches of Tokyo, but with the typhoon it was hard to see much of anything. The interesting part, however, was watching the clouds move quickly and the rain pouring onto the city. Unfortunately pictures don't do much justice, but in person it was fascinating.
This was before the downpour.
I guess it might seem a little lonely that I did all of this by myself, but I didn't really mind so much. I was able to still have a nice day and take time out to do things I enjoy (which believe me, is a rare opportunity now days), so I'm still very happy!
By the way, I was wearing sort of a new Moi-meme-Moitie coordinate today!
I bought the blouse last month to wear at the August 2nd live, but since it was postponed I decided to wear it for the first time today. I still feel like I'm trying to figure out exactly how I want to coordinate it, so this was just sort of an experiment. Its hard to tell from the picture, but the skirt underneath is blue and black, so the socks match it better in person.
Heres the blouse by itself along with the bracelet that came as a novelty gift.
Anyway, now to finally set up my new PS4!!! (´･ω･`)=з
Moi dix Mois just uploaded a new PV for Je L'aime!!
Check it out!
According to Monologue†Garden, Kozi will be playing as guest guitar for Moi dix Mois during Deep Sanctuary this year and then at the end of the concert Mana, Kozi, and Yu~ki will get together for a MALICE MIZER session song. Mana's blog entry on the subject was touching as he mentioned K having a lot of respect for Kozi. You can read the translations as always on my translations site.
