For overseas fans like me who once thought getting your hands on ROSARYHILL's past albums was just a faroff dream, a wish upon the stars, and but an impossibility, here's what the band has done to surprise us once again prove how much they love us when we least expect it:
First off, their latest album Dust in Flame is now on iTunes!
Second, their long sold out and out of print CDs are now available on Amazon Japan!
Thank you, ROSARYHILL!!! You've never failed in making us feel how much you appreciate us T_T We will always be loyal for the rest of our lives.

Someday, an artist will approach me and ask if he can paint me.
Someday, a true gentleman will kiss my hand.
Someday, I will be asked for a dance.
Someday, my favorite composer will write a song that's only for me.
Someday, I will travel the world with the man I love.
Someday. Someday. Someday... ♥

Hoping to better understand the songs that I love so much, I will be working on translating ROSARYHILL's albums in English. So I re-listened to Fairfield, Afterglow and realized wow… their music has really evolved in Dust in Flame!!! And this is coming from someone who thought very highly of Fairfield!
Even if it's just one song at a time, one line at a time, with every progress it makes me appreciate their music so much more. It's amazing, how much thought, how much detail, and how much heart every piece has. If I were to describe ROSARYHILL's music in one word, it would be "intricate".
There's just so many layers!!!
Some of the lyrics I have already done made me love those tracks so much more. Ryuta's words are very kind. Hidden beneath the lines that reflect pain and loneliness are pieces of gentleness... and I think that's part of the reason why I'm so drawn to his songs.
Thank you for making my 2013 memorable. Hoping to make new memories with you next year too!!! <3

Last spring, I had the biggest and best surprise of my life when ROSARYHILL announced that they will be selling copies of their sold out first album Fairfield a few weeks (months?) after I went to their concert at Kichijoji Planet K on Dec 23, 2012.
This fall again, when I finally got to listen to their album Dust in Flame, I had the biggest surprise of my life!!!
Let me go back to their 12/23 oneman concert. That time, there were only two songs that I wasn't familiar with, and I really loved one of them. So much so, I kept replaying it in my head even months and months after I first heard it. I would hum it on my way home from work even if I didn't know the lyrics ^^
Mind you, much thanks to my dear friend Noriko-san, I have all their albums except for two- Ashdown, their very first single, and Hawkeye, a single I missed T_T
For Ashdown, they have samples up on their MySpace page, so I know the songs in there. So I figured maybe this mysterious song is from Hawkeye, which, sadly, they didn't sell again in both concerts I attended.
During their release party in Osaka last Sept 25th, I was secretly hoping they would play it. Sadly, they didn't. But it's okay, no matter what I had an amazing time hearing some of their new songs for the first time. And I got to play janken with Ryuuta-san and Micchan! Heehee ^w^
So fast forward to now, when I'm back in Toronto and finally able to put their album on my phone and listen to it.
As soon as I heard the intro of track #5, I knew right away it was *that* song. That mysterious song I've fallen in love with the very first time I heard it.
Thank you, ROSARYHILL. You always, always surprise me. ^_^ I will never forget this.
Thank you, Noriko-san. I owe this all to you.
And finally, my impression of Dust in Flame?
Ryuuta-san's compositions truly make Sae-san, Micchan and Kei-chan's talents shine. At the same time, I'm glad that Ryuuta-san can work with band members who can deliver- amazingly so- the performance his compositions demand. This is what makes ROSARYHILL, a band whose music resonates straight to my heart ^_^

I came. I saw. I danced. ♥
Thank you for the most exciting and unforgettable birthday ever.
This won't be the last.
I really hope I can watch them together with my friends Mai-san, Wen-chan and Florianne too someday. It was so much fun!!!
They had 2 CDs left of Fairfield, their very first album. So ROSARYHILL being the cool, fun adorkable guys that they are, they played じゃんけんwith everyone (who doesn't have the CD) and the winner got to take it home as a prize. Everyone really enjoyed it （＾w＾）
What I love most about this band is they are always having so much fun, it really resonates all the way to the audience' hearts. They are such an honest, sincere group just enjoying what they do. ♥
I also got to hear songs from their new album, "Dust in Flame" for the first time, live!!! The first time I read the title, my first impression was it has a 'rising from the ashes' feel... Like a phoenix. So far, the songs I've heard are filled with vibrant energy! Can't wait til I hear the full album!
