It’s been a year since I last changed this site’s layout. Here’s Beyond Eternal’s version 16, Drug. This layout features Lucifer, a J-rock band from Shinjo Mayu’s manga, Kaikan Phrase. Although, the layout is half done.
Kaikan Phrase or Sensual Phrase in US, was serialized in Japan 1997-2000 and made into an anime, 1999-2000. In short, it’s an old manga/anime. Kaikan Phrase was one of my favorite manga (I haven’t seen the anime though T_T) not because it’s ecchi but because it has a wonderful storyline. Shoujo Magic first scanlated this and then dropped it with 4 volumes after it was licenced. Just recently, Shoujo Crusade, a new scanlation group, decided to continue the dropped scanlations. So I got the idea of making a Lucifer layout this time. 😉
There was (yes, disbanded) an actual J-rock band called Lucifer before that was formed in conjuction with Kaikan Phrase the anime. Aside from Makoto, that’s supposed to be Sakuya (vocals), the rest of the band membes took the name of their respective character in the manga namely and Yuki (lead guitar), Atsuro (guitar), Santa (drums) and Towa (bass guitar).
With regards to the “Drug” name, I know you are wondering why the heck the name. Drug, according to the manga, is a song performed by Lucifer and was written by their lyricist, Aine. That’s the girl you see naked in the layout. *points above* The guy you see holding her is Sakuya, her boyfriend. Those lyrics you see are the lyrics of the song and the scenes were from the music video. Both the lyrics and the music video has sensual themes. After all, Lucifer is a band that sang sensual songs. I also provided the lyrics of Drug below, if in case you are interested and can’t read the small text above. Yes, yes. I even took the effort of typing it from the manga.
Open up to me.
Release your body.
Revealing the flower of your allure,
Seal this with a kiss.
You’re playing with the bedcovers…
You’re so nervous.
You hold me…
Your hand is shaking,
I feel your warmth all over my body.
I want to,
but you can’t.
You desire this.
