Recently, they finished their first national concert tour. They visited 27 places. The video and LD recorded on this tour are going to go on sale on the 28th of December. After the tour, they did a recording of a new song and then rested for one week. The name of the new song is "Necessary". It has been already known to us because we can listen to it on TV commercial of Toyota.

During their break, the vocalist said she shopped for tableware, dry goods, and so on. She enjoys cooking with the tableware that she selected and bought. She is good at cooking because her mother is a good cook. In an interview in one magazine, she said she began to keep a diary. She writes happy feelings in her diary frequently.
