L'Arc-en-Ciel - Different ways to say rainbow

In Japan better known as ラルク アン シエル, which phonetically amounts to 'Raroukou an sheerou'.

The foursome is from Osaka and deals mainly with pop rock, alternative rock, hard rock and art rock - so they are a kind of rockers, if we have understood it correctly.

What band name Arc-en-Ciel means - Rainbow - Ken Russell - Molly Russell - Christopher GableFrancophone users of this encyclopedia will know that a rainbow is meant by arc-en-ciel (literally: 'bow in the air').

One of the band members, bassist Tetsu (since 2010 he calls himself Tetsuya), once watched the French version of the film 'The Rainbow' (1989, directed by Ken Russell) and wrote down the French film title he saw on the video cassette.

As regular users of the Latin alphabet we consider this quite an achievement. Just imagine writing down a Japanese video title.
