As for the second part of June, scandalmania tumblr will get another week of holidays! This time the blog will go on break for all the next week (17-23th August).
Things scandalmania will miss in its break:
21/8 SCANDAL and RINA’s birthday + 'one piece' book release
Everyone please check the other amazing tumblr blogs while I am apart and enjoy your summer!
anyway, did someone understand what the text says on one piece cover? ‘cause it doesn’ make much sense to me lol
sometimes confident a bit sentimental
pieces of words that SCANDAL RINA (your?) on her blog
anyway what’s your opinion on this? I personally wish it will be more tha just regular RINA writing as we can alread see on her blog. as it will be released on the 21th it might be a looking back, something personal about her life until now.
books are totally getting famous in japan in these days. RINA’s idol, ayumi hamasaki, is releasing them since a while (even if I doubt this release will be something similiar to life style book).
Do you mean SCANDAL MANIA? (looks you made a typo writing MANIA)
To be able to join scandal official fan club (remember, SCANDAL MANIA is not the same as CLUB SCANDAL as the second is for mobile devices) you need a japanese address. For this reason you’ll need middlemen as for buying goods to the kitty web shop as stated in the faq.
So please, check all the information in the faq! If you don’t understand something or you need more informations don’t hesitate and send as many messages you like in the askbox

SCANDAL; “Q&A and Now” blogpost by RINA☆
Q. I want to recommend SCANDAL’s songs to friends! What would be good to listen to?: "Your No.1 favourite song, please let them hear it☺︎”
Q. Are you able to buy the SCANDAL MANIA goods that’s in the SCANDAL SHOP even if you aren’t in the fanclub?: "You can’t buy it☺︎ Fanclub goods, they are only for members. You can buy if you show your SCANDAL MANIA membership certificate (a must to have your signature & photograph)! You can enter the fanclub even at the SCANDAL SHOP♩”
Q. What’s the No.1 SCANDAL tune that’s been copied?: "Shunkan Sentimental / DOLL / Shoujo S. It’s often overwhelming. I’m happy♩”
Q. Other than Shun-Sen (Shunkan Sentimental) / DOLL / Shoujo S, what are other songs you’ll recommend to beginners at instruments?: "If it’s about the singles, SAKURA Goodbye / HARUKAZE / Awanai Tsumori no, Genki Dene. If it’s about those in the albums, Aitai / Sono Toki, Sekai wa Kimi Dareke no Rain / Hikare / Rock’n Roll / Koe / Namida yo Hikare / STANDARD. If it’s songs from the indies period, Space Ranger / Koi Moyou. I think it’ll somehow or rather be good☺︎ All of it, it’s is composed of the band’s sound, so I think if you’re to practice, you’ll be able to bring a performance that’s close to the source of the sound. Have fun!”
Q. Are there goods that will definitely be sold at live venues?: "There are☺︎ At the one-man live, we always prepare new goods that match the concept for the live or tour☺︎ I feel the 10days live in September will be god. Please look forward to it!”
Q. Aren’t there any drum solos since the Budokan?: "There was at the end of last month, where I did it for the first time in a long time at RINA’s drum seminar. It’s toughest when you do it freestyle, however it’s fun when your personality comes out and it forges the heart. At the drum seminar, I played a theme called【Natsu Yasumi】(Summer holidays) ☺︎”
Q. For the people who weren’t able to group in a band, what is a band?: "There aren’t any bands that can burst out saying, ‘This is it!’ I’m thankful for the dance school teacher for the fact that I was encouraged in musical instruments. Bands are good☺︎”
Q. For songs, do you start making them from the lyrics? Or the melody?: "When I’m presenting it on my own, I mostly write starting from the lyrics☺︎”
“This round, I did a Q&A concerning the band☺︎ For all the different kinds of questions and for being interested, thank you always.”
“Now, we’re preparing the new songs and recording it. It seems this is going to be really good! It is an honour to be able to do a 10days live in September! Tonight’s going to be long; Regarding【Shinkyoku Yaru Kara Kiite yo!】(We’ll Be Doing A New Song So Listen!), we’re saying, ‘Let’s do a live that’s like the title’. We’d announced it while we were in midst of production…that’s tough! (laughs) However, I’ve never hated such a means of doing since the past. I’ll give it my all!”
