So unactive ;A;

Since this news is quite new I felt the need to share it here:

MUCC announced (click) that they will be touring for 7 months through Japan. (they also had this on youtube) It's called SIX NINE WARS and they will hold a total of 55 lives, seperated in different tours. (click for overview and click for translation of dates and places, etc.) They also briefly mention how they wanted to tour overseas, but are unable to do so, so instead they welcome us to come to their lives in Japan instead.
What they also announced is that they will be playing new songs of their new album (!) during the tour, so it's possible to hear the songs live before the album is even released! How cool is that!

Let me know what you think about all these announcements, are you able to go to one of the gigs? How do you feel about a new album?

As for me, I'm extremely excited, I might be able to go to the "Thanatos vs Thanatos" gig and the "The End of The World" gig! Tatsurou mentioned in the video that the new album will have a sound that's also new to MUCC. I actually thought they tried all kinds of styles already, so what will it be? All I can say is that I like it how they try all kinds of things, so I'm very interested to see what else they will create and do.

So yeah the community has been rather inactive, but for those who are still interested but aren't keeping up with Mucc here's what's been happening with them!

* In August, as part of their 15th anniversary celebration, they held a contest in which fans could apply to JOIN MUCC. Yes, you read it right, the fans would get to records, join in on photoshoots and interviews. Out of the 700+ entries, they chose Dean and Hancho as the lucky winners.


I actually really liked Dean. He reminded me of myself and how I would act if I was in his shoes, except for the fact that he didn't glomp Miya and hang on for dear life like I would. Also, the song they were singing sounded promising! A funny interview with all 6 can be found here http://www.en.barks.jp/news/?id=1000003132
Sadly, the two band members only lasted like 2 weeks. I wonder if they too couldn't stand MUCC's new sound *sad lol*

* In September They released a bland sounding single, "Halo" with an equally bland cover (or rather it is the most messed up one piece cover I've ever seen). I wish bands would find out how words are pronounced before proceeding to mispronounce them for the duration of the song....One of the bsides was a remix of 狂乱狂唱 21st century baby with only the children's choir during the chorus, much like the 暗闇に咲く花 but obviously not as good strictly due to the vast difference between the two songs.
Watch the single here as it's blocked on youtube (sorry video won't embed) To add insult to injury, Tatsurou's outfit is atrocious.

* End of October, they will be releasing "World's end" (not 世界の終わり!!!)  which is going to be a theme for some anime full of people with glasses.... the cover also has a ship on it, are they trying to tell us something? Since the single isn't out till the end of the month and the short version of the youtube PV is blocked all I can say is that the snippet I heard from the preview for the anime also sounded bland and generic. le sigh

So to focus on the only fun thing out of all of this, if you got to join Mucc even for a day what would you do? I'd cut a lock of Tatsurou's hair and prick Miya with a pin so that I can clone him!

I have a question about MUCC live DVD regional codes.
I'm looking into purchasing MUCC live DVDs at some point in the future as I've listened to MUCC for many, many years now and have never made a point to ask about this anywhere before.
I'm afraid to purchase DVDs from Japan that are listed to be region 2 coded, however, as of the last two or so years, I've purchased DIR EN GREY albums that contain DVDs listed to be region 2 coded, but when I get the album, they're actually region free. That's happened with every single thing I've bought of theirs now that is a Japan version containing a DVD, but its their newer stuff, so I'm not sure if that's how it was with their releases before 2009 because I never had the money to purchase Japan releases back then. I've purchased the GazettE's past two albums in special edition with DVDs thinking I would get lucky with the region coding being listed wrong, but the DVDs are region 2 and I can't watch them.
This is my main worry about ordering MUCC DVDs. I'd hate to spend the money on them and not be able to watch them.

So, I was wondering if anyone living in a region 1 country who owns MUCC live DVDs could let me know what is actually region free/all and what isn't, just so I don't waste my money on anything. I'd appreciate it so much!

I wrote this in a fit of insomnia last night, and I'm aching to discuss the whole 'MUCC's difficult period' with whoever is willing...

My apologies if fanfics are not the done thing here. I will delete upon request.

Title: The Day After Miya Punched Me in the Face
Summary: Miya decides to apologize to Tatsurou after punching him in the face, but since they're both dumbasses difficult people, it gets a bit passive aggressive.
Warning: Nearly all dialogue, some swearing, no pairing. Just the boys being catty.
Disclaimer: MUCC is not mine, please don't sue, I'm a student and have no income...
Author's Notes: Purely my speculation on what happened during MUCC's 'difficult period' circa 2006. Apparently, Tatsurou wasn't singing well and Miya had a fist fight with Tatsurou over it. I was all, "whoa, I hope Miya was careful with Tatsurou's face! And I hope he apologized afterwards." (I know, Tatsurou probably threw in some punches too, but come on, his arms are like twigs.)

( Miya wrapped his hands around his tea mug and cleared his throat. "I'm sorry about your face." )

Hello! Newbie MUCC fan here, please treat me gently ^^;

I only got into MUCC a few months ago, and during this Easter holiday, I pretty much lived and breathed MUCC music. I felt so gluttonous gorging on 15 years' worth of music, but man, was it glorious! The incredible thing is, I'd listen to a new MUCC song, and sometimes I'd be all, "eh, this is not my kind of thing," but after 5 listens or so I'd be all, "LOVE." Thanks to MUCC, I've started listening and enjoying a greater variety/style of music. I'm gutted that I didn't get into MUCC sooner, but better late than never I guess!

I'm really curious!

1) How did you get into MUCC?

2) Do you have certain MUCC songs that you listen to in certain circumstances? Do you wake up to a certain song, go to sleep to another song, or listen to song to psyche yourself up before a night out?

I got into MUCC through a friend who forwarded me video clips of MUCC doing a cover of Luna Sea's "Dejavu" and L'Arc's "Shinshoku ~lose control~". Mind blown.

I have a tendency to listen to "hanabi" when I wake up at 2 AM for no reason, "FUZZ" before a night out, and "Ryuusei" and "Haruka" when I'm studying, but other than that it's pretty random.
