    I'm getting increasingly concerned about all these privacy-invading ''protective'' measures governments worldwide are pushing through : / Have this lingering feeling that most of 'em won't be rolled back when this shit dies down

    Thanks guys for making this happen! It was lots of fun to read (even if they leaned in to the whole 'mysterious kote band' thing a bit too much, haha).

    It just says, announcement of a new chapter, gives two live dates (far into the future mind you) and then a date 26.07.2020 "to be continued...". Guess they're not giving up after all, wonder if they gave themselves such a long window to find a drummer...

    Ultimate! I'm so glad that everyone came back. Sometimes I play Smash 4 on my old 3DS and I used to play the 64 version a lot on an emulator.

    Neat! Which Smash Bros were you playing? Been a huge fan of the game ever since Melee. Tales of Vesperia and Mario Odyssey - both super addicting and fun

    hi all :0 i've been aware of vkei/jrock scene since like, 2009, thanks to my older brother listening to bands like alice nine/a9 around that time HAHAH i had my entire emo + anime vocaloid japan phase until like, most people, i discovered kpop! despite it being my main interest i did still listen to lots of jrock and whatnot though i guess i'm wanting to fall back to my roots (if u can rly call it that) and really get into vk now, kpop is kinda boring after you turn 18 if we r honest LOL i've been lurking mh for some time and finally decided to make an account and i'm keen to do some deep diving !! gazette is my favourite band, so they're really the only band i've realy kept up with. mentioned before a9 is ofc on the rotational playlist, but some newer bands i really enjoy so far are diaura and nocturnal bloodlust, and the few songs i've listened to from deviloof are great!! if you have any recommendations, please let me know! otherwise its nice to meet everyone and i hope i can make some good friends within the vk scene (ง •̀ω•́)ง✧

    Who knew that Animal Crossing NH would have discourse at all? People pressed about people time travelling, and for how their towns look even. Let people play how they want, if you're competitive at Animal Crossing then it's probably not the best game for you.

    Nice, same here. It's a great series. How do you like Ultimate? I love the wide selection of stages and characters. It's amazing how far Smash has come ever since its 64 days. Haha, I played a lot of Melee on the GC.

    LUNA SEA - MOTHER [Discussion Thread]

    oh shit! My bad, man. I had no idea this is how the polls operated. I just added an option for "none". Hope this helps! As for me - when I first got into J-rock (2004/2005-ish) i had a bad habit of downloading albums, and just skimming through them and keeping whatever appealed to me at the time. LUNA SEA was one of the bands I did that with, so I've liked a random batch of their songs for a while (stuff like "sweetest coma again", "into the sun", "be gone"), but I got caught up in so much other music that I just never bothered to go back and actually give their albums a full listen. It wasn't until I saw soko ni naru's cover of "Rosier" that I got interested in hearing the original: And so I literally just got around to listening to this album maybe a month or two ago, and it's a great listen! Obviously, I'd be lying if I said I considered this album a classic (as I clearly don't have much of history with this record), but I can definitely see why it's considered one. Sugizo's guitar work and composing has even been a huge influence in younger, non-VK bands like Ling Tosite Sigure and soko ni naru. So it's clear that LUNA SEA has had a far-reaching impact. Imma definitely have to dig into some of their other albums now!

    Coronavirus (COVID-19) MEGATHREAD!

    Supposedly there's a conspiracy that 5G screws up your blood to oxygen ratio and partly the cause of coronavirus. Sounds crazy, but we really don't know how our bodies will react to 5G, but I doubt it is doing that. One thing we always worry about is that the stronger the G the higher risk of cancer. I don't know much about the science behind EHF, but supposedly there's no correlation between cancer and cellphone use.

    LUNA SEA - MOTHER [Discussion Thread]

    Thank you for creating this thread! There is definitely too less love for Luna Sea in this forum. This album is clearly a VK-masterpiece which everyone who is interested in this scene should have listened to at least once. As Mother is not my favourite album by them (the self-titled it is) it has a nearly perfect balanced tracklist and I never grow tired of listening it from front to back. Finding specific highlights is very difficult but I would choose IN FUTURE (RUDE BOY!), LOVELESS and MOTHER.

    LUNA SEA - MOTHER [Discussion Thread]

    ROSIER was my introduction to the band, so I can't help being partial to this album. It's one of the all-time greats. LUNA SEA really upped the bar not only for other bands but themselves too with this album. It's pretty much flawless from beginning to end, full of memorable moments, and even the few tracks that don't stand out for me are of a category which would count as "pretty great" if any other band did them. Zero weak songs. From what I've experienced, it translates to live performance really well too (witnessing FACE TO FACE in the flesh back in Germany 2010 was one of my top-tier vk experiences of all time). Favorite tracks: LOVELESS, ROSIER, FACE TO FACE, IN FUTURE @CAT5 Damnnn, I wanted to skip choosing a weakest track from this flawless album but the poll makes it mandatory, how rude! ;(((

    LUNA SEA - MOTHER [Discussion Thread]

    All the songs on this album are super fantastic except Fake which is still a good song. I can't decide between this and Image for my favourite LS album they're both about equal in greatness. But this band has one of the best discographies in visual kei so it can be hard do decide.

    Absolutely love! 🥰 I'm not a fan, but own limited edition of this album and this is one of the main treasure in my collection! I don't remember when was the first time I heard luna sea, but the first song of this band I ever heard was gorgeous ROSIER! Many many maaany years ago it was my nickname, huh. Nostalgic...

    it seems like they're rolling out new rules every other day in Poland. personally, I've been on and off on home office for three weeks, and other than going to work, I've been outside all of three times probably, for grocery shopping. Warsaw is pretty deserted, it's kind of eerie~

    2020 Japanese Music Ratings

    It's my first time doing this in a very "why not" fashion, expect me to give up in 0.5 days I'm bad at ratings so sorry if I reevaluate this in 0.2 days I decided to do this because I thought Dimlim's album sucked so bad I found myself skipping all of it and I'm glad I'm not alone in those thoughts lol. * = It's not yet released OR I didn't listen to the full thing yet so my comments are concerning the MV/previews J-MUSIC [January 07] [single] グラビティ↗︎↗︎楽しさFULLVOLTAAAGE!!! (Gravity) - 決意ゼロヒャクMAX!! (Ketsui Zero Hyakku Max) - 7/10 It's... a very solid rating coming from me I swear. [January 20] [album] ACME - WE ARE VISUALKEI - 7/10 This Best Of album is so goooood. The only thing I don't like about ACME, as I realized, is that they somehow got robbed during that US tour if that means they won't want to come/feel safe in my country lol aside from that, I love. Rock on. [January 25] [pv] SHIN x Alice Nine - Velvet - 8/10 This is a rating pure out of nostalgia because this cover really sent me back to the Rainbows days. Great song and great vocals singing. [February 19] [album] Queen Bee - BL - 7/10 First time properly listening to Queen Bee mostly because of their videos on The First Take and it's pretty cool. Not really in a "ohh my jam" way but it's good and chill music. What drew me to them was probably how the vocalist looks anything but generic j-pop/rock singer but their voice is as generic as it goes, although very skilled. [February 26] [single] flumpool - 素晴らしき嘘 (Subarashiki Uso) - 6/10 Still need to watch Ahiru no Sora ... I really need to watch it ....... the song is ok but I bet it looks amazing as a TV size opening and I don't want to spoil myself. Because I swore I'd watch it but lol [March 01] [album] DaizyStripper - INFINITY - 6/10 * It's OK and my brain is like "mugen no kanata heeeee" all day lol [March 4] [single] SID - delete - 6/10 * Technically, rhythm-wise it'd be a 5/10 tops but I adore his voice lol [March 4] [single] ACME - 嘘顔 (Usogao) - 6/10 * I mean... it's cool [April 22] [album] Miyavi - Holy Nights K-MUSIC [February 12] [album] 펜타곤 (Pentagon) - UNIVERSE : THE BLACK HALL - 7/10 The first full album is definitely not their best but far from being their worst.
