I really think that KOTOKO is slowly loosing her spark since graduating from I’VE. There aren’t any differences from all the other Anime-Singers in her Music now...

But as for I’VE in general, I really miss the days when we got a Single or at least an Eroge Song from the girls at least every two month. Now with KOTOKO’s and Eiko’s graduation and MELL’s one and a half year illness, we only can wait for Mami Singles and half-ass produced Singles from LSP.

I really wished that after the loss of almost every strong Utahime, it would be Kaoris time to shine, but they still trade her like she’s not there. It must be really frustrating for her to be in the buisness for 11 years now, and everything you’ve got were 2 major Singles (not counting “End of refrain”) and one major Mini Album. It seems that Geneon isn’t interested in her at all, they seem to be more interested in signing new Artists like Maon Kurosaki, Ray, Nagi Yanagi and let them sing I’VE produced Songs that would perfectly fit Kaoris Voice...And the Producers seem to have lost any hope in advancing her career as well. Yes, Kaori still doesn’t have any stage present, she doesn’t show any personality when speaking to the crowd on concerts and her Voice is thin as air, but I still think it is unfair treating her like that after all those years...

 But the hardest thing for me is that I really miss the dark/mysterious I’VE songs. Tracks like Higurashi..., KILL, Real Onigokko, all the Songs Eiko, MELL and KOTOKO used to sing. There are no Girls left that could sing those Tracks. Kaori, of cause not, Mami never did those Tracks as well, and from the LSP girls only Nami would be making a good “mysterious girl” but she’s still too inexperienced to give us a believable performance, when singing those Songs...

 But now I’m really waiting for Mamis new Album, I really hope we will get some surprising Tracks on there!

I completely agree. When Kotoko was with I'VE you could at least look forward to 3-4 heavy hitting dark trance tracks on her albums. She has "graduated" into blandness. I don't really bother to follow her because whenever I check out anything new it is just a chirpy anime sounding track. As for Mell, i was hoping she would end up being the premiere I'VE girl since Kotoko left, since her 2 albums were very strong. I have not heard about this illness. Are there any links explaining? I guess I'll do a search.

basically my thought is RIP I'VE Sound....it was a good ride. Glad I got the 1Oth Anniversary Live in Budokan DVD to document before the downfall.

At the End of 2010, right after the Tour for her second Album, MELL felt unwell and went to a doctor.
That's all what I'VE told the Fans via MELL's official Twitter. Since then there is no Life-sign of MELL.
Due to this "illness" MELL wasn't able to participate in the I'VE+Lantis "Tribal Link" Project, she wasn't included in the " IVE presents - Holly Knight diffusion"concert  last December and she won't be participating in the Big "Visual Arts 20th Anniversary Live" Concert in June, held at Yokohama Arena were all of the I've girls (even KOTOKO and Eiko) will be singing some Eroge Songs.
Its very mysterious...

Here's MELLs Twitter https://twitter.com/#!/MELLMIRAGE

wow. That is a mystery. I hope it isn't something terminal like ovarian cancer. Not even being able to show up and sing a song or 2 at an event for over a year and a half sounds extremely serious.

MELL was always so passionated with her Music and I guess if she would be able to sing even 2 songs, she definately would do this...
To be honest I really think that she has cancer or something like this, but I hope that I'm just wrong with that.
I hope she will be well soon

KOTOKO's new song Restart for this new game called Renai Replay. Maiko did a good job again, or maybe I just enjoy everything she does... anyway this is one of the new I've songs that I really like, after Mako's Level Octave, Mami's Spiral Staircase & Koubou (the last Shana song).
btw, again, feel free to PM me if you have any song or lyrics request.

Thanks for update. I guess that's good news and bad news about Mell. Still, why only 2 "new" songs after so many years and why retiring from singing? I have my doubts about them being new and think they were probably recorded while she was still active around her 2nd album....just seems weird.

thx BUFFIE ~

MELL's final album!? I cant =.=
what about her 'illness' and the excuses from I've (IVEBUS), about 'waiting a little longer' because it's a 'secret', last I checked (albeit long ago)? at least tell us some made-up story...

also, if any dear soul wants to take over the thread, please feel free to do so by posting/sending a request to our lovable mods. I no longer feel like updating (regularly) anymore.


what Kazuya Takase wrote to MELL here... http://ive.mu/mell/guest.html

Kazuya wrote:
「ああいつまでも歩き続けたい
そう絶えまなく湧き出る希望のように
ああ穏やかに時を見ていたい
そう果てしない星達の海のように」

この歌のような人生(旅)がMELLに訪れるように願っています。

「ah... I want to go on forever
like this nonstop forward aspiration
ah... I want to quietly witness the flow of time
like this vast sea of stars」
(lyrics from Utsukushiku Ikitai)

A journey of life like the one in this song will come to MELL, that's my wish.
Kazuya.
