Looks like we'll have to wait a little longer before we'll know how to read the title of Art Cube's mini-album.

I had asked several friends, both among the Art Cube fans and Japanese people in general, but no one could say what the correct way of reading it was. So I asked the band's staff at tonight's live, and this was the answer I got: "Rasentsuk.... eh? Getsu? eeeeeh? D: D:  I can't read this!!? @_@;;;"

The next Tokyo live isn't until the end of November, so they might update their website before then, letting us know what the title is. The poor staff girl looked slightly panicky when she realized she couldn't answer my question, so she'll probably find out as soon as possible.

Haha nice. Not even their staff knows how to pronounce it. At the next live she probably will know about it though.

Do you think it's likely that Art Cube will only have lives in France?
Because by now I doubt that they will have more dates than just that. There are more listed on their MySpace (without any info), but...Only France it seems. So I won't get to seem them :(

She looked surprised herself, at not knowing the title x) If they don't write it anywhere online before the next live, she'll probably come running as soon as she sees me then, to tell me what it is.

This whole EU tour thing seems a bit like a disaster D: All the band has said about it here is "We're going to Europe in October", announced last Monday by a not very enthusiastic-sounding Seiji before he quickly moved on to talk about something else... A band should be really excited about their first performances abroad, but they just don't seem happy about it at all :/ The other fans keep asking me "Are you going to Europe?" But how can I when I have no idea where I'm supposed to buy a plane ticket for.. -__-; I really wanted to go.
But yeah, it's supposed to happen next week, so I guess they might as well cancel those other dates and focus more on promoting the gigs in France. And I'm sorry you probably won't get to see them :(

they only have the two concerts in france plus one signing hour in a vicky store in paris

I just saw they updated the information. Too bad the two dates are a week apart, it would make it a lot easier for fans traveling long distances if we didn't need to hang around for six days waiting for the second live. But it's good to hear they finally confirmed which dates are happening and which are not.

well, usual it was planed that they play in greece on the 9th and 10th october (or at least, that was, what the company told the guys) on the 11th in paris, the 12th in strassbourg and the 17th in marseille and if the company would have worked a bit better, they would have had two more dates in germany.
but now we all see, that there never were lives planed for greece, at least not from the company.
So, i guess thats why they all for a sudden make this signing hour at the vicky store in paris on the 10th october.
And the two concerts in france on the 11th in paris and the 17th in marseille.
but i don´t think that there will be much fans, cause they just announced the dates three weeks before and thats simply to less time :o(
really sad, cause this band is such a great band :o(

Wtf? The organization is really great. Instead of visiting three countries they will only see one and only have two concerts there instead of three.
I feel sorry for those guys :/
Oct. 3rd, 2009 10:12 am (UTC)
what do you expect?
the organization is build of two fan girls oO
one of them is still going to school and the other girl...well, we see how she´s working.
calling this an european tour is a bit high spoken and i really fear that this will break the neck of art cube :(
Oct. 3rd, 2009 10:16 am (UTC)
I didn't know it's made by two fan girls. I actually thought they had a real company helping them or something.
Do these girls actually have any idea of how to organize something like this? Or did they just write them "HEY GUYS we want to see you live and will bring you here :DDD"?
Indeed, they rather should have announced they will go to play live in France, not in Europe. For most people that means more than just one country.
I don't really see why it should break their neck, but they might not be too eager to come and play and then do it again somewhen else, seeing how "well" it went this time.

one of the founding members met shizuki two years ago with plasma jet.
when they build the company, she contact him, that she works for a company who organzi concerts of japanese bands in europe.
when i just listen to how she organized, i was just like:
that´s your way of tourmanagment? why for god´s sake do you think i had to study to do that job? oO
Oct. 3rd, 2009 10:22 am (UTC)
So she actually does work for a company? But without having graduated in that field? I wonder how she even got the job then.
It's sad to see this happening to Art Cube. It'd been great if they would have a nice big Europe tour with a few countries to visit and a bunch of lives to play. They better had waited for the right time to come, but they might be more careful about what to do in the future.

her friend (she´s 21 and jsut finnished school XD) build this company XD both of them don´t know how this business work as everyone now can see...but i don´t want to fill chounohana´s blog now with private talks ;o)
so if you want to talk: danniebelle@live.de

It will be a lesson for them though. They will know that they need to do things a bit differently the next time. So let's just hope they'll have fun in France :) (I'm looking forward to lots of pictures in Kazune's blog.) With a live both in the north and south, maybe some fans will take the trip from Germany and Spain to see them as well.
And the European fans should be greatful for the chance to meet the band at the signing event! They never do any events in Japan.
Oct. 3rd, 2009 10:20 am (UTC)
the signing even is really cool.
and of course, i guess a lot of fans are happy that they come to europe and in germany we have also fall break at schools during that time, but i just noticed that a lot will stay away.
It´s simply a lot of money needed to drive to paris, pay for the concert & for hotels etc.
Oct. 3rd, 2009 10:28 am (UTC)
Not only the money, but also the time. For pupils it might work depending on if they have fall break or not, but for students or people who work it also is a time problem. The concert in Paris is on a Sunday, so being back in time on Monday is highly unlikely and Marseille is quite a bit from Paris. It's on a Saturday, but travelling there takes a lot of time and money.
Travelling out of country always is a bit of a bother, no matter where you live.
At least people living in France should have the opportunity to go.
Oct. 3rd, 2009 10:12 am (UTC)
Yes it seems like I again won't have the change to see them. Someday I will manage, someday :(
Either when they really will do a Europe tour which is actually organized or when I go to Japan.
What a bother X(
Oct. 3rd, 2009 10:15 am (UTC)
i hope that this tour won´t break their financial neck that much so they can still make a second europe tour :o)
but when i talked to one of that girls she was like:
for europe, art cube is our band and we are their manager for europe.
if thats true, which i really doubt, but if, then i fear that art cube will be ruined during the end of the year :S
Oct. 3rd, 2009 10:20 am (UTC)
The second Europe tour won't happen anytime soon anyway I think. Maybe in one or two years, if that isn't too soon.
Mhh somehow I doubt that. It seems they also have contact to a guy in Norway, or that is what I got to hear at least. Someone there who actually wanted to bring them over. That guy probably has more experience with that business though than those two girls. But who knows if that is true, I certainly don't.
I don't know about costs for something like this, but I can imagine it to be not too nice if they barely have audience.
