I'm glad to see that you reviewed this album, I was going to suggest it but never got around to it. I quite enjoy this album, and I feel you gave a fair grade to most of the songs (though I think I enjoyed Pierce a little bit more than you did, at least). I do have a couple nit-picks though:

Quote:
the band has performed in the United States at A-Kon in Dallas, TX

They actually didn't perform at A-Kon, they just hosted a Q&A session and two autograph sessions. Their first concert in the US was at Fanime '08. (evidence that I'm not just saying whatever I want)

Quote:
Click below for a clip of the song "Marionette"

You might want to change that to "S*B*Y."

Also, a couple suggestions for albums you might want to check out:
Yousei Teikoku - Gothic Lolita Propaganda, Metanoia (gothic techno/rock-ish group, has composed theme songs for anime, and the vocalist is Yui Itsuki)
Mucc - Shion, Best of Mucc (performed ED theme for Zombie Loan, plus their Best of album was released in the US, so it makes for a cheaper purchase)

Anyway, keep up the good work, and I look forward to seeing your next review.

Ah, my mistake then. I thought I read somewhere that they performed.

Yeah, that should read "S*B*Y." "Marionette" was the song from the Ayumi Hamasaki column.

Thank you Anime smile I will take your suggestions into consideration!

I love An Cafe. They balance the usually dark and heavy songs on my playlists. Their music is just so darn fun.

I second Anath_19. A MUCC review would be cool. And D'espairsRay is still on the list, right? Good column as always! Smile

Wasn't expecting D'espa on the list because of a lack of any connection to anime, but I'm glad to hear you'll be reviewing one of their albums. I love them quite a bit. I'll look forward to seeing it.

i remember readin about them in Shojo Beat. i LIKE them alot, i'm glad that they released a second album and just out of curiosity: has any of their songs been used for an anime yet? their songs can totally make a good opening or ending.

Sounds like a band I will have to check out! They sound like a good band to listen to for dancing beats and a more uplifting sound.

And they are super cute! Bonus! *grins*

Awesome! Thanks for the great column!

There will occasionally be non-anime-related bands reviewed - it just won't happen very often.

An Cafe? As I said in the review, “Kakusei Heroism~The Hero Without a “Name”~” was the second theme song for Darker Than BLACK.

It's a pity that an error in the original article that was pointed out on the same day that it appeared was not corrected in the original article.
