LUNA SEA is considered by many as one of the most successful rock bands in Japan and had pioneered the development of Visual-Kei genre. Their distinctive music and costumes in their earlier days of début had strong influence over both music and cosplay scenes in Japan and overseas. By 1998, the band had sold over a total of 2.5 million CDs in a single year. With “I for You” as the theme song for the famous Japanese drama "God, Please give me more time!”, LUNA SEA's popularity spread overseas, leading to their first Asian tour in 1999.
