Love Dynamics: Toshi Fan Community
I am sorry this community is so silent. I am afraid I have no real news updates to offer you readers because ToshI has been rather quiet.
What I mean by that is that he has not appeared in many online news articles, nor magazines. He doesn't have an active blog anywhere as far as I know. He has deleted all of his mixi accounts so even if I had wanted to translate his entries there, I no longer can.
But, his official website and his MySpace still remain!
Official site: http://toshi-samuraijapan.com/top.html
He currently has two song samples on his MySpace: Crystal Piano No Kimi, and Aisuru Hito Yo.
On his official site, over the last few months, he has mentioned:
-Releasing the single Crystal Piano No Kimi.
-An explanation of why he closed his mixi account.
-The opening of X Japan's Official Website for North America
-How the release of Crystal Piano No Kimi will take some time. As in, it's production and shipping is delayed I believe, in order to meet customers demands or something of that nature.
-Announcement of a special dinner show that he will be having with Yoshiki as co-star.
-Announcement mentioning that a new X Japan song will be featured in the "Buddha" movie.
-Announcement of a special Box Set and a DVD to be released soon.
I will describe the box set and DVD below:
DVD: cost: 6800 yen. contents: footage of the special dinner shows that will be held January 24th-25th, 2011 with Yoshiki as the co-star. This DVD is also in the box set.
Box Set: cost: 24000 yen. contents: The DVD listed above. Photographs and an essay detailing the long friendship that Toshi and Yoshiki have, dealing specifically with the events of the last year where Toshi got a new start as a solo artist. Documentary DVD showing all the preparations leading up to the special dinner shows, along with off stage footage from the day of - a behind the scenes DVD if you will. Another DVD where Toshi and Yoshiki send their regards to the fans, sharing with them any personal messages and some rare stories. A CD made specifically for this box set. And some memorial goods for the special dinner shows.
As you can see, the cost of the Box Set is quite high, but it does come with 3 DVDs, 1 CD, Photos and an essay - perhaps all in a book?, and some goods. I have no idea how you can order it at the moment. If any of you have an idea, please share with the community.
And that's all the news I have to report. By all means, please share any fan art, fan fiction, thoughts, discussions, news posts, links, pictures with the community. As long as Toshi is in it, it should be alright!
And if you have any ideas for the community, please feel free to suggest them. Thanks!
