Heard some of their songs, I really like the vocalist’s voice! Gotta find out more about them.

actually, 夜魔徒撫死子 should be read as “yamato nadeshiko”. the word is originated from 大和撫子. they’re a pair of words with the same pronunciation but different meanings.

https://mangadejapan.com/articles/detail/981#:~:text=Although%20Yamato%20Nadeshiko%20refers%20to%20women%20being%20cautious,to%20guard%20the%20family%20with%20a%20strong%20side.
:point_up::point_up::point_up: for the definition of 大和撫子.

and, 夜(ya)魔(ma)徒(to)撫(nade)死(shi)子(ko), all the characters are 音読み (onyomi) except 撫(bu) and 子(shi), which are 訓読み (kunyomi).

I now im a bit late on this i actually had to rebuild my pc recently. If you ever want to find out more let me know im a huge fan.

I love these guys. Their songs are great, including OTOGIs voice. Go back with them since their 2005 releases. Always saw potential in them then i saw their popularity after Nakunaranai Uta and DEADMAN were released. I really did not expect them to become this big or last this long and i am soo happy they did. An amazing band, will forever love them.

I agree, they developed really nicely over the course of their activity. Otogi especially. It’s even more amazing when you listen to Otogi’s pre Awoi bands. He sounded totally different and during Awoi’s days he improved a lot. A shame that he doesn’t seem to do anything now.

Yes it does suck i really wish this band came back soooo badly. They only managed to make a couple of releases when Otogi fully mastered his voice on the Abelcain release. Otogi is currently retired from musical activities rn as for Shou its currently unknown what happened to him. Everyone else is in servere addicts only but it doesnt sound the same. He has some of the voice that Otogi had but nothing like him at all.
