Welcome to the L'Arc~en~Cyclopedia! At roughly 10,000 words, with 300+ pictures, I hope this is one of the most thorough informational resources for the band on the web. I know I learned a lot making it so hopefully there are things that all you can learn as well.

If there's anything you'd like to contribute - information, pictures, corrections - feel free! You know my e-mail address. Your help can only improve the encyclopedia.

While the information in this site is gathered from many, many different sources throughout the years, the photos I have taken special consideration to recognize the sources. Please visit the photo credits page to see where I got each image from.

The encyclopedia is divided up by year. Each page has a link to the following year.
