Makoto in a new movie, “Utsukushiki Mehyo BODY SNIPER”

Makoto has a role in a movie that just premiered earlier this month and will be released on DVD on April 7th. It’s titled Utsukushiki Mehyo BODY SNIPER (or “Beautiful Female Panther: Body Sniper“) and from the looks of it, it seems pretty raunchy: (NSFW, nudity)

Alright, not exactly the most terribly exciting news, but oh well… at least there’s boobs. No but still, some activity is better than no activity, right? Actually, in recent times it’s Makoto who’s been the most inactive out of all the members, so this at least serves as a way to let us know he’s alive.

Is it just me though or is the guy starting to look a little old?

In any case, here’s to hoping this brings us closer to the Aucifer reunion.

You can find more info on the movie here.

Aucifer are BACK!

Indeed they are! About damn time!

Though the news about this was originally announced a couple of months ago, I only found out about it now. Here’s a rough translation of the announcement made by Shinjo Mayu, the mangaka behind Kaikan Phrase that of course gave birth to the real life Aucifer.

Aucifer’s comeback!

“To commemorate their 10th anniversary, Aucifer are finally being revived!
For this 10th anniversary there’s a new game being released, a comeback for Aucifer…
As for the rest… it’s a secret! (lol)
We’re planning various things, so look forward to it!
Details will be found here →
You can also see a few old promo pictures at the website of Makoto’s new agency here! →

The members have had clashing schedules due to various projects, but they’ve finally made time for their comeback.
By the way, for all of you who don’t know…
Makoto has been doing solo activities.
Yuki has been a supporting member in Acid Black Cherry, solo project of Janne da Arc‘s yasu.
Atsuro has been a supporting member in Shokotan‘s band.
Towa and Santa are in a band together, and Towa has also been doing songs for AKB48
Atsuro, too, has been making songs for different artists

Though their 10th anniversary was actually on September 15th, because of these various individual activities of the members, their return was delayed until now.
But, finally I’m now able to pass on this news to you all.
All the fans, please wait for additional info.
I really want to go see them as well!!
It’d be nice to meet old staff and assistants again.
I’m really looking forward to it!”

¹ The hell? AKB48? This is something even I didn’t know!
² Like I’ve written previously, Atsuro has worked with Hello! Project before. Interesting, it’s like Aucifer are in kind of indirect competition with the AKB vs. H!P thing, no?

Mayu’s message was posted on November 18th. It shouldn’t take much longer until we hear some more news concerning this. Can’t wait! I’ll try to keep you updated as I hear anything more.


Hello and welcome to Henkka’s Aucifer blog, hereafter referred to as Silent Melody. How original…

In case you weren’t aware, Aucifer are a band. Actually, they’re a pretty damned good band in my books. If you’ve no idea what they’re about, the Jpopstop article on them would be a good place to start investigating — I would know, I’m the one who wrote it!

I’d call Aucifer my all time favorite J-rock band. I got to know them like anyone else: through the awesome Kaikan Phrase anime. I loved it! Since I’m a huge music fan, it was a very entertaining watch: whether it was the silly animated playing scenes, the ridiculous band rivalries, the “releasing five singles on the same day” schemes or the 24-hour live shows (what the hell?!), I thought it was magnificent. More than anything though, it was the music that stuck with me. It didn’t take long for all the songs to be completely burned into my memory. I started investigating, quickly dug out their whole discography and, well, here we are.

As to why this blog exists? I have another blog where I occasionally wrote about Aucifer but I figured, why not just make a new one focusing entirely on the band? Hey, they’re my favorite after all. Some might argue that there’s not much to talk about a band that’s been dead and largely forgotten for a good seven years now, but as it just so happens, there’s very strong reason to believe Aucifer are going to be back soon (more on that in the next post.) Even if that never happens though, I don’t mind: I like to occasionally check what the members are up to and then write about my findings. And hell, even if they stop doing anything at all, there’s still all those old songs to fangirl over, right?

Please join me as I write about anything and everything having to do with Aucifer, its music, its members’ recent activities and about how much I want to engage in sexual activity with Yuki‘s hair. Please bear with the site as I try my best to not make it look like shit!
