An Cafe – what are they doing now?

I’m not the only one who miss An Cafe’s happy tunes and wonder what’s going on in the members lives during their break.

The happy gang.

The happy gang.

I’m happy that I got the chance to see them live at least once:


They were a pretty successful oshare kei band, but how will they make it on their own?

Well, there’s at least some news about Miku and Kanon.

At Pinky Distortion webpage you can download a free sample of the game for you iPhone! I don’t have any iPhone myself, but hope my boyfriend will be kind enough to try it out on his.

Take a look at their webpage here: Pinky Distortion.

For you lucky bastards who will in be Baltimore, Maryland, USA July 30 – Aug 1, Kanon will participate in panel and autograph sessions and be a guest DJ at Otakon; a “convention of the otaku generation”. Check it out here: Otakon.

I wish both Miku and Kanon the best of luck! I wonder though what’s happened to the other An Cafe guys; Teruki, Yuuki, Takuya – and not to mention Bou!

Well… Good things come to those who wait.

NYAPPY! o(≧∀≦)o

Welcome! This is not an actual news site but a personal blog, run by an ordinary person who loves visual kei. This is my space where I ventilate thoughts and values and shares happenings within the scene. My goal is to make information easy to access and to support artists and movements that I admire. Especially smaller bands that need an extra push in the djungle of major bands. English is not my native tounge so please condone my linguistic mistakes.
