These NARASAKI and TOKUSATSU photos are from someone's blog, but I can't find the original link/source.
This might be the source link, but it's not working:

I don't know where this photo is from and I forgot where I found it, sorry!
I THINK it's from a TOKUSATSU photoshoot.

Nana, COTD FAN Translator & Affiliate, scanned this from a magazine she had. I forgot what magazine it was though...

NARASAKI & function code(); [2007]

In 2007, NARASAKI (He went by NACKIE.) helped out the band, function code();, on two of their songs, UNDYING LOVE and (HeroinE);. [5.27.2010 EDIT: NARASAKI also worked on the songs: THE NIGHT FLUTTER, ALICE IN BROKEN WONDERLAND, BETTINA, CAMELLIA, HIGH DIVER and JULIET - Thanks SerialTear!] I think he mainly helped them out with guitar composition. I'm not exactly sure.

2007.08.26 Sunday - THE DAY OF RECORDINGS #02


I found this Japanese blog while searching for COALTAR OF THE DEEPERS photos. The blog had a high quality image of NARASAKI (Some of you may recognize the photo from an online interview, but this image in in higher quality.)!
The blog mentions something about ordering a photo along with THE BREASTROKE II (according to Google Translate)... As far as I'm concerned, the official COALTAR OF THE DEEPERS' website never said anything about selling photos. If anyone could translate the blog entry, please do!

梁山泊 [2001]

In 2001, COALTAR OF THE DEEPERS was on a TV show called, 梁山泊 (Ryo Zang Pak).
I think it's a comedy game show.
the members, NARASAKI, KANNO, and ICHIMAKI, and another band (I forgot their name) were on the game show.
The videos USED TO BE on YouTube, but due to copyright laws, the videos were taken down.
I tried to find more information on this episode, but none were recorded online.

From what I remember from watching the videos, COALTAR OF THE DEEPERS and the other band were asked questions and some were personal. After all the points were added up, in the end, the other band won.

If anyone has any information on this episode and TV show, please let me know!

Yahoo! Japan Auctions [July 2007]

I'm sorry for not posting, everyone! I've been quite busy...

This is old news, but I've been meaning to post this information up.
Back in July 2007, NARASAKI was auctioning off some guitars and equipment. Unfortunately, I was stupid and did not save the photos of his equipment. :( SORRY!

Original text from COALTAR OF THE DEEPERS' website:

There is also this Japanese website that has a photo of one of NARASAKI's auctioned off items.

From what I remember, the items were ONLY AVAILABLE for Japan.
I also remember that one black guitar that had a small sticker of a cute bunny on the head of the guitar. hahaha
I'm very jealous of the people who have those items now...
If anyone has one of NARASAKI's items, please share some photos! :)
