SCANDAL; “Yoake no Ryuuseigun” singles
It’s the flying-get day today for SCANDAL’s YnR singles! I got my LE copies early this morning so I thought I’ll share them here! Also comes with the B2-sized ad poster.
In the DVD, SCANDAL also brings you along behind-the-scenes for their May “Kyu ni Kite Gomen. In Kita" tour, which involves the girls, besides performing, visiting the zoo, walking in parks and having barbeques. It was really fun for me to watch (held myself back from all the internet leaks ;__;). RINA has also blogged about the DVD earlier before, which you can read HERE.
Please support SCANDAL in the best way by buying the original! You can still order your copies HERE ^^

SCANDAL; “Ototabi” Broadcast Contents
This round, the ones going on a journey in search of sound is…SCANDAL. The place of departure SCANDAL has selected for ‘Ototabi’ is Kyobashi station, a place that is 15-minutes max by train from Shin-Osaka. The reason for selecting this place is…
Kyobashi, Osaka is where there was a school where these 4 had the chance of forming a band. At that time, they would come from each of their hometowns to gather together in Kyobashi during the weekends, stimulated by practices.
During the time the band was formed, the mere radius of 500m from Kyobashi station were these girls’「World」…This scenery…the sounds they got used to, sparking memories of that period of hardship…their feet bringing them naturally to the band’s place of formation.
Up to now, (Caless) was a prestigious music school in which many artists have been sent out into the society. When their time approached, SCANDAL has lessons together with the seniors in their school. At that point of time, the girls didn’t have their instruments and were only encouraged by dance as their only weapon.
With dance hammered into them, the girls’ direction from the school had hurriedly became that of a formation of a band. The 4 people who practically aren’t acquainted with each other were grouped to be a band…without knowing anything as it is, there was nothing they could do about dancing as their life took a complete turn and they went forth with the band activities that they could not get used to.
They started their life as a band, that is mixed with joy and insecurity. A nostalgic sound appears as they thought of then…
8m from the school’s backdoor. There was a mansion where they girls would lodge together every weekend. The noise that came flowing from there were their lives at the point.
Right next to the school the girls went to was a cafe-restaurant that was famous for its cakes. Returning after practice, they stopped and stood here as if it were like those days…
There was a sweet scent of cakes from the kitchen. They took a smell as they dreamed of the days where they’ll eat, using the money they’ve earned themselves. After that, with sound coming from above, the memories came…
While they listened to the sound of the train rushing by, they watched the cake in the kitchen that time. Only during the birthday of a member, they would share the cheapest Profiterole amongst the 4 of them. It’s been 6 years since then. The taste of that…
Next, we’re headed for…
A bakery that holds memories, 500m from Kyobashi station. They’d visit here often after practice. Going into the shop after 6 years…
That time, RINA and MAMI would come and go into the store. They’d always receive bread crust from the shop’s old lady. They could never forget, up till now, that gentle voice that said,「Take this and go.」
It’s been 6 years since then. That person has…
The never-changing, gentle voice of that shop assistant has them welling up with feelings.
With that, there’s a taste of thankfulness that they can’t possibly forget. Looking at the shop assistant whose image has gotten bigger, the girls wished they could give back a little. Next, we go towards…
In midst of being in a harsh, low social class, these girls continued with their band practice without quitting. The result of that was the increase of audiences in their street lives. However, could they really go pro? They wondered to themselves. There was a place…
That was the Higashinoda Park in front of the school.
As they swung on the swings, they’d exchange「thoughts of going pro」in this park.
They won’t forget the impulses in their early days…Chatting together in this park, these 4 swore on fulfilling their of going major.
That SCANDAL, the sound the wish to hear the most now…

“In midst of such atmosphere, my fingertips have became cool-looking☺︎ Recently, I like hologram☆Sparkly. In the night, I went to have dinner with 2 writers that have taken care of me. The photo’s of some sweets that I got. Happy.”
“It’s courteous of listeners of people who write articles, the conversation is never-ending. Your mind and heart gets more organised as well when you talk about yourself to other people. It’s great to be riding on words isn’t it. During the times when you don’t know what to convey, just go on and write what you’re thinking of anyway. For a moment there, because you know yourself, you’ll feel that the things you say and can convey will increase☺︎ Articles are fun.”
