Here’s something out of the ordinary, even when it comes to Visual Kei.
This band has been around since the summer of 2012, but since we have not introduced them on Shattered Tranquility yet, this is being filed under an introduction post.
VAMPIRE ROSE is the solo project of Count ROSE, who is actually the chief of a themed restaurant in Ginza called Vampire Cafe. Support members are from different bands. They have had a few lives this year already, but they will be having their first one-man event on April 29th at Birth Shinjuku, followed by a dinner party at Christon Cafe in Tokyo. A big announcement is planned for that day, so if you’re interested, you’d better go!

Secilia Luna 4th Anniversary
『Angelianity Myth』LAST LIVE
OPEN 17:00 / START 17:30
Terrible new today for Secilia Luna fans today. We’re sad to inform fans that members announced a few hours ago on their ameblos and their official site that Secilia Luna will be going on an indefinite hiatus after their 4th year anniversary live on May 28th. Members are adamant that the hiatus is not due to disagreements between members or musical differences, but a strong desire to continue on their own individual paths. This fact brings much hope to fans.
They have written the following:
An Important Announcement from Secilia Luna
Thank you for your continued patronage to Secilia Luna.
At this time we would like to announce here that it has been decided that after the Secilia Luna four-year anniversary one-man live, “Angelianity Myth,” on May 28th at Ikebukuro EDGE, we will enter an indefinite activity pause.
We would like to offer all of our gratitude and apologies to the fans and staff who have supported Secilia Luna since we began activities on May 26, 2009.
The remaining time with these five members is short, but we will continue to fly until the end.
Tenshi Kyouto*, let’s become one at the one-man on May 28th.
Below are comments from the members.
*This is the name of Secilia Luna’s fans.
Even if Secilia Luna ceases activity, I believe that the songs we’ve created before now will continue to live forever.
My feelings of wanting to put my own emotion into songs and convey them to everyone who has listened to our music have never changed since our formation.
I’ll sing each and every song with importance until [after] the one-man on May 28th, so please give me your support!!
First, thank you to the many people who have supported Secilia Luna until now.
Though we’ve been active because of being cheered on by so many people,
I’m sorry that today it’s come to this kind of announcement.
This is not something due to one person’s circumstances or selfishness;
It’s the result of the five of us talking over and over.
With each member carrying his own thoughts we became active as Secilia Luna,
But at the present, this is the very best decision we could make.
Specifics, and what we’ll do after this –
Those are things I’d like to convey to you directly at the last one-man live.
There are only a few lives left,
But in order to keep from leaving any of us or any of you Tenshi Kyouto with regrets,
We’ll deliver our feelings with all our power.
There, everyone will be as one with Secilia Luna.
There, I hope we can all smile.
Up until now I’ve received so much love through [being in] Secilia Luna that I can’t even say how much.
I think that it’s thanks to the support of so many people that we were able to fly as angels until now. I am truly grateful.
We have arrived at the decision of an “indefinite hiatus” now, but it doesn’t mean that the future we’ve considered and envisioned will change; there is also no feeling that the end has come.
The one dream of Secilia Luna is eternity.
There is only a little time remaining before the May one-man, but the time we can spend with all of the Tenshi Kyouto and the time we can play our music — I want to make it more precious than ever before.
I think it would be nice to be able to convey a more detailed story and talk of what will come from here on through our blogs and directly at the last one-man.
Everything is for your smiles. Really, thank you.
This is a sudden announcement. I apologize for surprising everyone.
During the never-ending discussions, when we thought about the future of each of us, pausing our activities became the first-choice result.
There are no disagreements and we feel no musical differences between us. It is a result of the mutual respect we have for each other.
At the one live that is left, “Angelianity Myth,” Secilia Luna would like to express with all our might the music we tried to communicate to the Tenshi Kyouto, so please, somehow support us until the end.
Concerning the activity pause, first of all, I want to say that it is not because the relationship between the members has become bad.
In the studio we are noisy and tell funny stories.
There are many reasons for the hiatus, but I personally feel like the biggest one is the thought that among our different options for the future, the choice of a hiatus will also broaden future opportunities.
Regarding my activity from now on, I don’t have any intention to stop doing music. Because I like entertaining people, I think I want to stand in front of everyone in one way or another. But at the moment, I want to do my very best in Secilia Luna until the pause, so I’d be happy if you came [to the live].
For the last time I want to see smiles, not tears.
I love all of your smiles.

Thanks to Eos for asking us to check this out!
Although they didn’t make a huge announcement about it, on the 21st Kyoki from Secilia Luna got into an accident and was injured and hospitalized.
Kyoki has updated his blog with information about what happened and an explanation as to why he didn’t mention it sooner.
[Report] Kyoki is slowly getting better
I don’t know if it’s slowly or not, but, I’m getting better (´0ﾉ｀*)
I’m sorry for not really being around recently.
First, I’ve gotta apologize, right?
I’m really sorry.
But let me give you a simple explaination to why I haven’t been around.
In the morning of the 21st, I got into an accident and ended up with injuries to my face, head, and body.
At first, I had no idea what had happened,
but then I realized that I was in a wheelchair, in the hospital, with Saki* and some of my close friends
as far as I was told, I had gotten some tests done and such.
It really hurt, and my body felt really strange, but
if you look at the silver lining, the CT (?)* and skull x-rays showed that everything was fine.
So even though it looks like it hurts, there really isn’t any pain.
So I was like, man, I’m invincible aren’t I?, and I calmly got dressed and went to write a bit in my blog…
I then realized that I didn’t want anyone to worry about me, so I couldn’t say anything about the accident.
But then, I kind of started to wonder if my blog post seemed more “normal” than usual.
I was kind anxious about it all, and my head and body still really hurt, so I decided
that I’d take a bit of a break.
Do you get what I’m saying? (Laughs)
In short, I was in a pinch.
I’m sorry. (:_;)
I really wanted some time to think about stuff, but
I didn’t have that kind of time, and now, finally, the swelling and whatnot has gone down,
so I started to think “hey… I’m human… wait no, I wonder if I kinda became an angel”, so I’m writing in my blog.
Maybe, without any mishaps, I’ll go back to being a regular, healthy angel.
Oh yeah, today Secilia Luna is going to be on NET TV, but…
I’m not sure if I can go or not, because I’m not sure if Camaro will be stepping in or not.
Maybe by some chance I’ll be able to be on it.
I don’t know, I want to make a decision about it around noon today.
And, I just recently watched the DVD of the Rutoufuru・Rafuman oneman live that I was in on the 20th. (Laughs)
When I watched it, I thought that I looked really energetic, jumping around like that.
And, I really started thinking that the saying, “staying healthy is the most important thing”, really is true.
When my body is in bad condition, my heart feels the same way.
I’m usually really positive, but I got really negative.
But hey, I’m better now (Laughs)
Because it’s me? You don’t need to worry, okay?
But everyone was really worried about me.
I love you all.
I swear on my heart that while you’re all still alive, nothing will kill me.
I used to think that it’s easy for people to pass away,
but I won’t die as long as you don’t.
I tend to think that my injuries were exaggerated a bit, but
they weren’t. (Laughs)
I’m going to take extra care of my life now.
I also want to take care of each and every one of you.
The members, my friends, my family, I want to take care of all of them.
So that the memory of me will be 100.
It’s a small promise, but I’ll remember it.
It’s a promise that can’t only be said in words, and one that hasn’t been asked for, but someday, I’ll definitely be
able to repay everyone.
At any rate, I’m working hard to make a full recovery.
So, see you (laughs)

Hello everyone! it’s that time again!
Today’s random fact comes from Kyoki of Secilia Luna.
Kyoki says he cannot be bitten by mosquitoes! He says that when they’re tired from flying they’ll stop and land on him, but they don’t bite him. He doesn’t gets bites or itches.
How amazing! Does anyone else not suffer from mosquito bites??
I don’t suffer from them, of course! I’m too much of a ninja-bunny for them!
