Misc.[edit]

  • In addition to the initial pressing of THE.LOST.INNOCENT, which features a white digipack case with a velcrow strap, there is also an alternate version with a black cover that comes in a regular jewel case. This is the remastered version and features superior sound to that of the previous edition, though this release tends to be overlooked.
  • There were alternative covers released for Tsuki no Hana, Memories in White, and Defect Lover Complex.
  • Tsutomu has a slight accent to what typical central Japanese dialect sounds like, which is apparent during his singing. For instance, in Fanatic Crisis's 4th single, "Rainy Merry-go-round", his pronunciations of "maware" and "yume" clearly display an accent.
  • The Shockwave '96 version of 'Truth' features a piano solo before the guitar solo, as opposed to the choir in the album version.
  • The single and album versions of 永遠の子供達 -the eternal child- are virtually the same, with the exception of the album version being lyrically censored.
