  1. Let kids believe in Santa. Y'all are grown adults and still believe the X Japan album actually exists

  2. I've had my ups and downs with this forum, but I honestly think coming here was in the end a positive experience for me. I've met some amazing and knowledgeable people here, and some really cool and kind souls. This forum helped me develop from a newbie fan into a well listened Kote-Kei slut lmao. I've found so many amazing bands through this forum and if it weren't for the rest of y'all fucking hipsters (and I mean this in an endearing way) I'd probably have quite a different music taste lol.

    For those who want to interact with me, I'm on J-Rock One as fairy_aimy. I hope to see y'all there

    Well, since MH is closing, I thought I'd finally begin work on this project. For years, MH was THE place to get high quality downloads of rare bands. However, since MH is, well, dying, so much Visual Kei will be purged from the internet. To make up for that, I've decided to start work on a project to sort of replace MH in that regard. But, I cannot do this on my own, which is why I'm asking for your help. If you're interested, join my discord server where we'll organize things https://discord.gg/mFeJ6C3Yvm
  4. Welp, since MH is closing, I want to ask all the major uploaders if they would be cool with helping me form a download site for rare Vkei. If you're interested, pop in this discord

    Oh fuck they named a band after me lmao
  6. Well, fellas, we finally have Due Le Quartz PVs in high quality. All thanks to my friend, Kairu. You might know him has the guitarist of En'Cell Dis'Dein, a neo-Kote band.

    DIMLIM and anything relating to them just ends up being a huge fucking bruh moment
  8. I used to think that one R-Shitei song where Mamo's autotune has the throat length setting made to make him sound like a girl was pretty cool...
    ...but now it just feels creepy to me

      Oml, I literally just found this band yesterday lol
      Now I'm curious heheh

      I listened to "帝都に死す", do they have more songs like that one?

    3. Himeaimichu
    4. Himeaimichu


      @Bunny-Usagii They have quite a few of them scattered through their discography

  9. KiTTiE was probably the closest the west ever got to Visual Kei, both visually and musically and cliche-wise. Their music honestly sounds like it inspired a lot of the Nu Metal Vkei bands that started coming out around 2003. 


  10. I keep forgetting I'm actually sort of known for making weird, cringey comments on YT as a teenager,

    and so I occasionally have people I have never seen before reply to me "How did you get here?" on certain videos lol

  11. IMO, I think we're reaching a point in time where we don't have to let the current trends define what we like. We're in an era where you can reproduce any art style from old times, with modern techniques, for not that much money.

    The future doesn't have to be minimalism or post-modernism. It can be whatever. I personally believe the ideal future is one where there is diversity in art, and where we're not as bound by time period. We're practically already at that point, but not exactly yet.

  12. If you so dearly miss the old Myspace and want a little nostalgia, make a Friendproject profile. It's a code-for-code ripoff of Myspace 1.0.


    Or you could do what all the cool kids are doing and make a Carrd, but fuck that, I'm using a myspace ripoff made by some weird christian guy that only minors use so I can relive a part of my childhood lmao. Just... without all the cool Pokemon RPers and stuff.


    Check out my profile! It's the most mid 2000's Vkei weeb shit you can get. It's super fun, but the site doesn't have much else to offer.

      Man, I was a youngin' when Myspace was hip but even I remember these charmingly garish mid-2000s sites. Sent you a friend request btw!

    3. Total Saikou

      Total Saikou

      Lmao I'm glad to be the second person to join your VK group 

    4. Himeaimichu


      I'll be sure to accept the request! Hopefully more adults catch onto this site, because even though it's very archaic, I feel like it's got some strengths that modern social media could learn from. 

  13. So it's post-2012 R-Shitty.... but with electronics instead of guitars. I really hope one of the other former members does a Kote-Osa project that just blows the scene out the water... because this ain't it
  14. Is it just me or does it seem like mid 90's indie vkei isn't that well preserved? For the early 90's and late 90's, it's indies galore, but in the middle of the decade, there doesn't seem to be much that I can find.

    Maybe I just am not looking in the right places?

    If anyone's got any recs, I prefer the Deshabillz and Kamaitachi clones lmao

  15. I love Tupac as an artist, but I really feel like he's severely misunderstood. Most people treat him like he's some all righteous Jesus figure, when in reality, he was quite an imperfect guy with a lot of flaws, but I think that actually makes his story interesting.


    I mean, for one, he wasn't even originally a gangster. He was a theatre kid from Harlem. He didn't start repping the bloods until Suge waved money in his face, and that's when he really started getting mad with power. I mean, he was literally starting beefs with EVERYONE, even fucking De La Soul of all fucking people. (And contrary to popular misconception, Biggie wasn't a crip, crips weren't a thing in NY at the time, but he did hire crips as bodyguards when he went over to the west coast).


    I think MC Eiht put it best. He went backwards by affiliating himself with gangs, and it's just unfortunate it ended the way it did

  16. No matter how hard I try, I can't get into Cardi B's music. I just get meangirl vibes from her music, and I'm sick of dealing with petty ass meangirls IRL, what makes you think I'm gonna handle a musician who makes it part of her music? lmao

      My friends seem to be into her cuz she's hot. So I guess there's that. I don't particularly like her either but I've been forced to watch WAP several times. 

    3. Manabu


      Isn't Cardi B the one who you used to sleep with guys and rob them afterwards, then her fans defended it because she was broke? 😂

    4. CAT5


      'No matter how hard I try, I can't enjoy the taste of shit".


      That's basically what you're saying. Her music is shit on every level. And Cardi B is ugly as fuck. Bitch look like gumby with implants.

  17. Himeaimichu

    Welcome to the forum! It's not as big as it used to be, but it's still chugging on. If you have any questions, moderators and admins such as @suji and @Gesu can help
  18. No one is offended by the term gay, Except maybe straight people unconfident about their tastes
  19. Is it just my limited taste in Vkei, or did Vkei literally just ignore grunge in the early 90's?

    (Did Grunge even have the same impact in Japan as it did in America?)

    1. Total Saikou

      Total Saikou

      I'm pretty sure you're right though. For some reason, grunge never took off in Japan. All the cool alternative/experimental bands didn't even think of seriously playing it, they usually went for the shoegazer or noise route. In all my (rather short) years of being a VK fan, the only band I've ever seen touch grunge was Plastic Tree, and they dropped the genre like a hot potato after the new millennium.


      Also, I looked up "Japanese grunge" and all I got was 1 musician. Take that as you will.

    2. Himeaimichu


      I know the band Glamorous Honey dipped their toes into Grunge, and the nagoyakei musician Aie has grunge influences.

      The GazettE are definitely fans of grunge since they literally wore Nirvana patches lol. It seems as if what little Grunge did permeate Visual Kei, it was long after Cobain died and Grunge wasn't cool anymore in America. 


  20. Wow... YouTube is now showing ads giving really misogynistic and downright rapey dating advice.

    If you get an ad for "the desire system", that's the one. 


    Isn't it funny how content creators have to follow these super specific guidelines just to get advertising, but the ads can literally flat out go "How to control women's minds!" And just.... wow...

    Just watch this video

      @suji Oh it's more than that. She's basically become a political pundit like her brother and her entire fanbase is just Ben Shapiro fans who want to fuck her lmao

    3. Total Saikou

      Total Saikou

      Hime has it down. My biggest gripe is that she says stuff like "If you don't wear modest clothing, don't expect men to not objectify you or treat you as an equal" yet she wears modest clothes and people objectify her as nothing but a MASSIVE (and I mean massive) rack all the time. 

    4. suji


      At least her youtube is a refresher from all these other Youtubers who try to look like Kim Kardashian.

  21. Having obscure music tastes is a curse because it limits your dating pool (and I'm one of those people who can't connect with people who have vastly different music tastes) and it's like... why can't I just be like all the other girls and like P!ATD, Lil Peep, BTS and Ariana Grande? Why do I have to be into nobodies like Cuartet and DEViL KiTTY?

    1. Total Saikou

      Total Saikou

      Well, there's no worse curse in this world than being a normie in my opinion

    2. CAT5


      Hey, i feel ya, plebeian music taste is annoying. 😅


      Tho I would submit that it may not be the most resourceful measure to base a potential relationship on. Besides, you never know - there are tons of people out there who may have vastly different music tastes than you, but would also be open minded enough to learn about and possibly even enjoy the music that you do (in addition to being a great partner in every other aspect). This has been my experience at least.


      Just my two cents 😁

    3. cullucoo


      Lil Peep is better than 99% of Visual Kei anyway

  22. This dude shares the last name of Saki from Cuartet and I was thinking... Saki could easily pull this scam off because he and Kyo look (and in some ways, sound) exactly the same lmao
  23. Himeaimichu

    Well that was a short run for the new AINS, since Jiga was the most promising band. Looks like Yukika is going to have to look for some other naive bandmen to scam
  24. I wish there was more Missalina Rei live footage. Their last-live just doesn't cut it for me, because they're barely even dressed in Vkei.
