    I believe it was pre-Nocturnal Opera, so I might be out of luck there. It is one of my favourite photos of him, I'm not really sure why, probably how candid it looks.

    I'm fairly certain I have it (given I have almost all the Madousho issues) and I already have mine all scanned as well, so will look for you as soon as I get home in about an hour and send it to you.

    EDIT: Okay, I've found it (it's like a photo of him halfway between fully made up and not...his lips aren't drawn on in the photo you're referring too! XD). Are we allowed to post it here, or should I just PM it to you?

    I think the occasional single pics are fine, especially if it's 10+ years old.

    Sounds good to me, flowers! (I had to resize it real quick...apparently my 600 ppi scan was too large a file! XD) Actually, I agree, Sanctum. This photo is really cool (if this is indeed the one you were referring to). I like it a lot!

    I just realised, he is playing the JF there, not the JF-x model.

    He doesn't sell the hard copies any more and they aren't available to purchase digitally right? Unless he plans to put a lot of those photos in a book, it's like out of print items. And even if they were online, if he did a book, people would buy it. Internet has made things complicated when it comes to images and art. At least here if he asked to have it removed, I'm sure it would be.

    btw, I'm not saying put all of the print ones on here or anywhere. Just understanding @flowersofnight position.

    I know what you mean. I still wouldn't go crazy posting my scans anywhere, but a request here and there isn't going to be an issue, I'm sure, to help out anyone seeking them. :) Quite a few of the scans aren't available online, especially the oldest and (for some reason), the final issues. But a few scans are, which have circulated over the years. I have extreme respect and love for Mana, so do encourage buying anything he puts out. Even if some of it is extremely expensive. ^_^

    Well, back in the day we (that is, FC members) all swore a binding oath to keep the materials secret when we joined ::mana::
    Traditionally on this forum we've treated it as a personal request from Mana. Given how much time has passed since Mon+Amour has been a going concern, I think we can bend the rules a little, but I do want to continue honoring the spirit of the request.

    The oath still stands for the Digital issues... although it is a shame that he hasn't done one of those in some time too...

    I have hope and do not doubt that Mana's desire to express himself will be seen again, in some form or another.

    Somehow I don't think he would be too upset given that it's done in respect and helps keeps the feeling going.
    You know, putting those together in a book with some new photos and additional text (and editing the old) might not be too difficult a thing to do...if he ever wanted to.

    Mana will be interviewed in issue 77 issue of Rock and Read, to be released at the end of April.

    Looks like the interview will be 24 pages too.

    I also just noticed that something is up with the supply on the CDJapan page, you can now buy D+SECT for the low price of ¥23905! http://www.cdjapan.co.jp/product/NEODAI-37792
