One of the singles, Akatsuki/Ikuoku no Chandelier, was used as the opening and ending themes for the anime series Ginyu Mokushiroku.

Not only will TSUBASA be released, but alice nine. also plan on releasing their new album, Alpha, on November 28th 2007!

Early 2008 alice nine. had to cancel several shows apart of a tour due to Tore injurying his hand.

Opinion: Only recently have I gotten really into alice nine., and to be honest I have no idea how to put into words how I feel about their music…Lets just say I’ve had one of their songs on repeat for the past few hours, it has played almost 300 times, and I am still loving it.

  1. Q and Stray cat are good songs. I dont know that much about Alice Nine but the songs that I have heard from them are AWESOME!! Thats the only words that I can think of to describe the music played by Alice Nine


  2. Yeah their music is ace, I’m going to buy TSUBASA and Alpha when they come out, and once my wallet gains weight again I will also buy Zekkeishoku. 😀

    I absolutely love Tora for Q., catchy tune, memorable lyrics, and Saga singing with Shou!
    Kya that made me such a happy fangirl, his voice is beautiful. (@___@)

    Sarah if you ever feel like buying some of their stuff I really recommend Zekkeishoku, I’m more than hooked to that album, and really look forward to being able to buy it.

    Yeah, yeah, what’s the point in buying it when you can or have already downloaded it for free?
    I downloaded GazettE’s “STACKED RUBBISH” and Antic Cafe’s “Kakusei Heroism ~The Hero Without A Name~” long before I even ordered them, I knew exactly what I would hear upon playing, but that just doesn’t beat feeling the tingle of excitement course through your veins as you hastily, yet carefully, unwrap the glorious disc.

    I love that feeling. *sighs*

  3. I love this band & thier my absolute favourate right know reason is that of thier melodies and shou’s vocals. I am looking 4 other bands that have good melodies and vocals with minimum screaming i know of duel jewel at the moment.
