@ IceT: I was also thinking of mentioning other bands, but my bands of choice would have been completely different from those you mentioned! ^^ And that's the clashing point. Considering that they maybe won't spend a lot of time on reading the mails, we should put the clear focus on Scandal, because this is the one big thing we all got in common. Of course we can name some other bands, too, but in the end, the reader should think: Okay, that guy liks japanese music, but he WANTS/NEEDS Scandal!
You get what I mean?
Referring to the magazines: Yes! Do you know more magazines where we could have a chance? Tell us! Let's collect them all! I actually mentioned these magazines, because they are the big ones, that I know.
@ Rararata:Yupp, that's the vicious circle! But if we want to get something done, we need to start somewhere, don't we? We could also try to involve the Scandal Germany Facebook group, and maybe we can also get some help by the SH Facebook page or twitter. But first we need to do some planning!

That, by the way, would be a great opening phrase for your e-mail!
