Oh, I misread it (makes appointment for better glasses).

My friend introduced me to the J-rock of his, but it hasn't sunk in yet.

ooo *raises hand* Wait you are talking about Mana from Malice Mizer/Moi Dix Mois right?

Maki Yu.Ki.Ame
06-08-2003, 07:35 PM
yes yes~ Mana-sama as from Malice Mizer and Moi Dis Mois!! Isn't she amazing?? (I always refer him as her....I dunno y!!)

**sorry for not specify at the begining~

...don't you think that adds another level of confusion? Hmmm...

Hehe...I guess I'm a fan...altho, I wouldn't want to assign ranking of fav jrockers...cuz there's quite a few I appreciate/idolize far more (...which is getting progressively more obvious...)
So how does one prove it? Why are you his fan?

I love Mana!!!!!!!!! He writes great music and is AWESOME on the guitar:)

i think she looks real pretty. Though she don't sing (mayb she dont' want to ruin her female image?) and gothic lolita is my fav!

yes mana sama...He does look better as a girl. The pictures in the Gothic Lolita bible are soo beautiful. God he is sooo pretty. ^-^

Yui

So...do you prefer his GL or EGL moreso? How do you feel about his acting skills and leadership qualities? What's your favorite MM song (cuz their songs jump somewhat all over genre-wise) and how do you feel about MDM in comparision?
...And is there anything about him you don't find attractive? And who else do you like?

(Sorry to be grilling ya on it...I just like to know specifics when people go fanatical...it's just very interesting to hear others' opinions on peeps I appreciate as well. But ever wanna get me started on Kami, Kaoru, Lida or Kirito? heheh...)

ryuichi fangirl
06-09-2003, 12:34 AM
welll...I like the GL a lil better..not sure why..it just appeals to me more....ummmmy fav song...(w/ Gackt) is Illuminati ...w/ Le Ciel a close second ...(w/ Klaha) it's Beast of Blood no contest....umm...I wish he would TALK ...I head his voice once on a clip someone had...but...that's it..an I rather liked it....and.....if we're talking who else in MM Ilike...then Kami and Gackt...^^

Velvy
06-09-2003, 05:09 PM
Ah, I like him. He has an EYE for elaborate, eye-catching costumes. And I haven't heard enough of Moi dix Mois to say I like his solo work (I've heard one song--Dialogue Symphony, but apart from the organ/harpsichord solos, I didn't like it), but his guitar playing in Malice Mizer was always good. Did he choose the name for Moi dix Mois? If so--he's an absolutely awesome namer XD. I like how it sounds.

Yui
06-10-2003, 09:05 PM
yeah...he kinda picks random french words simply based on their sound ('Me ten Months' doesn't sound so interesting in english O_o)
The Dix Infernal album is very powerful, but basically one long song...if you don't like it to start with, you probably won't care for the entire work...basically another, harder interpretation of what he started with BnS.
Yes, I appreciate Mana's drama in his image and flair in his music - and respect his remarkable business-sense as well. He certainly defined the role that so many other people have now come to emulate. I just kinda wish he was still as visually interesting, varied and fun as back in the Merveilles days. Um, but at least he still retains some of his personality, whereas poor schizo Gackt rewrites himself every month. X_x

06-11-2003, 01:11 AM
I actually like Mana's EGL
he look soooo elegant! My prince~~! (?)

hey, u guys like Malice Mizer better or Moi dix Mois? i like Malice Mizer's music better!

Michi
06-11-2003, 01:37 AM
...Solo.. work? ^^; Moi dix Mois isn't solo work.

Yui
06-11-2003, 03:42 PM
...yeah, it isn't, as is obvious from the cool album packaging. People didn't think Mana himself was singing, did they? ^_^*
I guess it's kinda like people off-handedly talk about Gackt's "solo" work, totally disregarding his huge harem.

Kaede
06-11-2003, 07:18 PM
I love Mana for his talent as a performer. He is the ultimate entertainer and musician. I think it's beautiful how he wears clothing like dreams as an everyday thing; we all should. The Oscar Wilde quote on the back of Parakiss 4 reminds me so much of Mana: "One should either be a work of art, or wear a work of art." ^^

ryuichi fangirl
06-11-2003, 07:24 PM
wow..Kaede that quote fits Mana perfectly lol..I never realized that before.. them's cool beans..

Kaede
06-11-2003, 08:20 PM
Yeah ^^

Just jumped out at me sorry but had to say "i love kirito" hah anyways... Mana's evolved a lot, I find it a bit unflattering that most of his fans give him respect solely because of his work with MM. hah I give him credit for sticking with his little lovechild letter "M" ^_- (MM, Mana, Moi dix Mois, Moi meme moite collab... randomness.

Velvy
06-11-2003, 11:05 PM
...Solo.. work? ^^; Moi dix Mois isn't solo work.

What I meant by solo is that it's his own separate band, in the sense that none of the old Malice Mizer members are included in the new band. ^_^ (I should've just said "new band" X_x)

Maki Yu.Ki.Ame
06-12-2003, 12:13 AM
i really really hope she can com with a solo too~ Coz i wanna hear his voice more, i really dont care if her image will change or wat so ever (see, i am already mixing up with her sexes, so who cares). I really wanna hear more of his voice!!

Holly
06-12-2003, 01:09 PM
I love him too, I love him so much Im cosplaying him.

Holly
06-12-2003, 01:12 PM
I love him too, I going to be him at AX this year. Gardenia mana

ryuichi fangirl
06-12-2003, 01:54 PM
lol..I am working on my Gardenia Mana for Nekocon!..and for next years Otacon I am going to have Illuminati Mana XD complete with my own Illuminati Gackt XD

Kaede
06-14-2003, 11:25 PM
Gardenia version seems to be the most popular...it is beautiful and the way the skirt falls makes it easy to hide hips while wearing the costume. Whats your favorite or dream costume to do of Mana's? I've got the urge to do some Illuminati cosplay right now...

Yui
06-15-2003, 10:00 PM
I rather enjoy how he's subtitled in interviews. XD His extreme methods to get his point across are oddly charming.

Hehe...my dream Mana costume...as in one I'd actually cosplay? The one from the (I think the first one, the red one?) Les Miserables de MM photo-interview book...where he's all slash-ravery and *almost* looking like a guy on the merry-go-round. I also dig his kimono one with the fan and all from that. Also I love his silly Eygptian outfit...especially because the other four MM boys look ~way~ more like girls than he does in that set. Even though hardly anyone would recognize any of those as Mana's outfits, I'd love to see cosplays of them someday. My very favorite look of his on -him- tho is probably Amusement in Nothingness....pvc, blue dreds, yum yum.

ryuichi fangirl
06-15-2003, 10:37 PM
hmm..I don't think I have seen those costumes Yui..lol..bu if I can find the pics I am sure I'll find a few I would be happy to make ^^ lemmie know if you ever need someone to do them w/ ya! lol

Yui
06-15-2003, 11:12 PM
Eep, the One with Too Many MM Books (tm) accidentally loses her audience...
Well, if you can't dig up any scans online, I'll get samples of all those posted after I get back from AX for sure.
And now you've actually tempted me to do obscure Mana cosplay...oh no...my list is getting so long... ^_^*

The obscure, obscure pics of him I've been looking to find for a while are the motorcycle photoshoot and the time he had pink hair. XD

ryuichi fangirl
06-15-2003, 11:25 PM
pink...hair...are you serious?!.....omg..I want those pics lmao ...I'm gonna have to look around for that...*snickers*...an I know what you mean ...gods...soooo many costumes I want to make gah..but obscure Mana ...tempts me so...:P...you just let me know okies?...*eg* ...pink hair...this I gotta see...lol

Kaede
06-15-2003, 11:30 PM
ano...pink hair? I need to see it. I think someone should cosplay either bunny Mana or that silly blue rainsuit costume he was wearing in the Ma Cherie book, complete with hovering multicolor bubbles.

ryuichi fangirl
06-16-2003, 12:12 AM
I want to do the bunny..lmao..he looks so *very pleased to be there ...lol

Kaede
06-16-2003, 12:16 AM
Hah I know he's giving off such bad karma in that photoshoot.

Yui
06-16-2003, 12:27 AM
Okay....I explained this -somewhere- long, long ago (like 900+ posts before), but here's the little I know about pink-haired Mana:

Okay, on the MM official website, I *believe* after the BnS concert but before the movie (my chronology may be off...), there was a pop-up window when you came on the main page. In this pop-up, it explained some kind of promotional MM photos you could purchase it seemed through a DigiCube printer kiosk. On clicking through that link, you got to the DigiCube page which gave -tiny- head previews of some of those photos:

- Klaha...looked very Borg-like, eye-scope and everything. Way most intricate (silly) costume I've ever seen on him. O_o
- Kozi...very short (lighter?) hair, (blue?) pentagram on his forehead
- Yu~ki...awesome-looking spiky-ish orange hair, single curved spiral horn on one side of head
- Mana...pink (very Aya-ish) hair, spiderweb neck thingie

Overall, they looked shockingly Psycho le Cemu-ish...even tho this was before PLC's era, really.
I don't believe these costumes were used elsewhere ever, but based on just the little thumbnails...they looked fantastically intriguing, and I've been on the hunt to find out more of this ever since.

So, you mission: seek out anyone who may have information related to these elusive pictures. They may just be some of the greatest post-Gackt & Kami costumes MM ever had. ^_-

Kaede
06-16-2003, 12:45 AM
wow...that description makes two words pop into my head: Pink Spider. But I'll be on the lookout for pics because now I'm interested.

Yui
06-16-2003, 01:39 AM
I think they were doing some kind of tribute to something...I mean there was some kind of theme that had nothing to do with any of their own songs...concert, video or interview as far as I can tell. Maybe they were just going to a costume party...who knows? ^_^*
But yeah, if you ever saw these, it would not be obvious it was Malice Mizer at all...you can pretty much only tell by their distinctive eyes/make-up shape that it's them at all. In fact, had I not seen it originally in connection with their official website, I probably would not have realized it myself.
I keep hoping one day I will stumble on a little website with big scans. Heh, but so far, it's like looking for the grail...

I find Mana amusing... he's not my favorite member of Mizer (Yu~ki! ^o^), but he is so stunningly creative and writes such gorgeous music. It's amusing that he's actually rather shy. I love his theory on why girls wear mini-skits.

I've seen at least two cosplayers do the bunnysuit. ^.^

Kaede
06-17-2003, 10:06 PM
*sigh* ((would love to see some pictures)) Now I think I want to do that, I'm discovering my humorous side more and more every day *cough* but I think I'd only take time to make it if someone joined me as Kozi in baseball garb. <--being sarcastic

I never consider Mana costumes because they're too girly for me... heh.. Mana is more of a girl than I'll ever be... but, I'd choose either the Beast of Blood or Shiroi outfits (gotta love black), Merveilles ("look, it's the blue fairy!"), or that amusing pope outfit that the group wore.

I know of no pictures per se, but you can get a better idea by watching the PV and simply looking at how the dress seems to come together. I'm revamping mine and bringing the wide fishnet that is a panel in the front all around the back. Oh, and don't forget the poufy trail ^^
edit: Yui - Found it ^^

Yui

Yea...baseball Kozi...I had so a double-take when I saw that cosplay. It be cool.

Mana looks...mean? That's the first time I've heard that. :thumbsup:
I guess maybe...sleepy-eyed, due to his make-up to imply larger eyelids.
Hmm. Guess it's just part of his egnimatic-ness.

Skullez
06-19-2003, 11:29 AM
well ive seen soem interviews and some amgazine artickls adn he just gets teh mean vibe from me personaly. he is fine as hell !! And i have amazing respect for him as a artist ! i mean huge respect!
but he is just a bit wrong / his words soemtimes. but again he does have a sensistive side as well! i guess its just being so popular you gota be cold sometimes. hell i think everyone would.

Kaede
06-19-2003, 11:42 AM
It's also due to his "ice queen" persona. Maybe they seem cold because they rarely talked for the press ^_^ ((just watched for the nth time Super Dream 98 interview))
