I can't believe there aren't more SPEED fans. Even if they have been disbanded for years now, they will always be "Alive" in my heart. I love their music, especially "Alive", that's my all time favorite. I remember Kaori sang a SPEED song for her audition. I love how Hiro's and Eriko's voices blended together. I really do miss them, but I keep listening to their songs all the time!

HITOE was on a recent Utaban during Nakashima Mika's segment.  Apparently she teaches Yoga these days and got everyone to participate in some exercises.  I guess Mika had been having some back pains or something, and that was the reasoning behind it.

Wikipedia:
"Hitoe also became active in yoga in which she has obtained the license to teach yoga in Japan. In June of 2007, Hitoe published a book+DVD combo of yoga lessons. Hitoe is currently teaching yoga in Shibuya, Japan's Star Light Studio."

Popular J-pop group Speed to reunite this month
Speed, a four-piece female pop group that initially disbanded in March, 2000, will reunite at the end of this month, it has been announced.

The popular group consisting of Okinawa-born singers -- Hitoe Arakaki, Takako Uehara, Eriko Imai and Hiroko Shimabukuro -- will hold a concert at Tokyo's Nippon Budokan that will be broadcast on Nippon Television's 24-hour TV program on Aug. 30 and Aug. 31.

The last time all the members performed live together was in autumn 2003, when they temporarily reunited for a two-month concert tour.

Speed will consider getting back together permanently depending on the reaction of their fans, the group's talent agency said.

Details are now out regarding SPEED's first post-reunion single. Titled "Ashita no Sora," the leading track has been chosen as the theme song of the NTV drama series "OL Nippon," which stars Alisa Mizuki and Sadao Abe.

The "Ashita no Sora" single goes on sale November 12. It will come with another new song called "SOMETHING NEW" and a medley of some of their previous hits, including "White Love" and "STEADY."

They never should have disbanded and broke many of their fans' hearts (including mine)  :bleed eyes:

It's good that they are back again but can they once again churn out upbeat songs like Body and Soul and ballads like Alive that captured millions of fans. I am betting YES and can't wait for their new single.  :heart:

They broke mine too ;_;, however, I've still been hoping they'd come back together again one day. I read about the new single yesterday, so I'm reallllly excited about it! I can't wait and will definitely be purchasing it through cd japan to help support their sales!!

Thank you!

I have to wait until December to get my CD, because I'm waiting for some other stuff that hasn't come out yet. So this will tied me over in the meantime :D

Oh for those that care, SPEED sold over 40,000 copies the first week and was #3 for the week. Awesome comeback! :D
