Yup it's stylized as capital S-C-A-N-D-A-L. So its not SCANDAL if its Scandal, scandal, ScAnDaL or whatever.

Same goes for their name, they want it in all caps. I think they even mention each other in all caps as seen in twitter.

I think Japanese peeps are case sensitive to the English alphabet.

I remember the Sunsilk commercial of Yuko Yamashita saying "Being Japanese, I always pay attention to details". lol

lol only capitalized, bold is not necessary. Onion XD

But it's still up to the person on what he/she wants to type, some type in small and some in all caps. Though I can't help but edit the posts here whenever I see it not in all caps. =Dp

^ we're used in writing the bands name in all caps after all Onion XD

and it looks much more appropriate and makes the word looks more important among the rest Clap

It's common in Japan that English words - especially proper names - written in English are all-capitalized. I doubt Scandal are really doing it on purpose; it's just the normal way Japan writes English names. Japanese has no capital and small letters so for most people, thinking about different cases when they read and write is difficult. It's like a westerner trying to learn *both* katakana and hiragana - wouldn't it be easier if we could just learn one?? I'll bet if we started writing Japanese words in Japanese here, we'd just pick one alphabet. And they (meaning Japan collectively) probably chose to make all-caps the standard for English names rather than all-lowercase because it stands out better.

I actually sell Japanese clothes for a living and all the brands we sell have English (or western) names... I think all but two are all-caps, and those two are going for kind of a European look to their logos, it's actually an intentional style.

So I think you can write it SCANDAL or Scandal, either is ok when you're actually speaking/writing English and not Japanese. If you were writing Japanese, you'd be expected to write SCANDAL, but then you'd be expected to write pretty much all other English in all-caps too. (Look at the info page on their site, for example.) They're not actually intentionally stylizing their name; that's just the way it is for English names in Japan.
