Notes

  • "Emu ~for my dear~" and "U+K" were written in memory of Malice Mizer ex-member and friend, Kami.[citation needed]
  • While not sung in any actual language, the album's booklet still provides lyrics for the song "Ares".
  • An acoustic re-recording of "Dears" later appeared on the album Love Letter.
  • "Dears" is used as the BGM in a "Gundam the Ride" commercial.
