*sees official anime art* aww that’d be cute if hide was alive
It's pretty glaringly obvious now that the record companies are behind the co which makes sense. A boyband just trying to break the market in 2010/2011 with an out couple? = losing money. A grown up band who have been around for five years who continue to gain fans in 2015 with an out couple? = LOTS of money, a whole new audience AND a way to make the band think about resigning with you because you did something that made them VERY happy.
