    Idk why so determined to prove that Hizumi’s project is crap based on the encore, did he hurt you or something? Lol.

    I honestly don’t even have words for this one. It hurts bad.

    Koichi: it’s been a long time coming.

    I mean I guess realistically some incentives for instores like 2shots can be done at venues, but the talks

    Bad year for vkei shops, and ouch, this one really hurts

    Yeah Koichi’s really improved a lot over the last year tbh. He’s not perfect but he’s trying hard and it shows.
  7. I predict a delay so they sell as many physical copies as they can with the initial hype, and then when sales slow we get it on Spotify.

    Not yesterday’s, sadly! I went to the first two shows of their 8-Bit Boy tour. Definitely worth it, it was a lot of fun and a massive improvement from when I saw them in September. It’s also cool because the crowd has improved, it’s less awkward and even if everyone kind of does the same furi to an extent, I saw a lot more people kind of doing their own thing and singing along. It was refreshing!

    I mean I’m a huge fan of Mejibray, and at the beginning, even though I went to a couple of 8P lives, I was massively conflicted about it. Then (in my opinion) the quality of the music began to improve and it became apparently that they were expressing what was basically an apology to the fans that they hurt in the process of breaking away - which yes, they didn’t need to apologize, I get that a lot when I bring it up, “they don’t need to apologize for being true to themselves”. But I was there for the last two tours, and it was rough. People were sobbing, everyone was screaming for encores that didn’t come, the tour final was ROUGH, and Koichi basically plugged 8P-SB at the end of Mejibray’s last live on his birthday. Even if they didn’t have to, it was really nice to hear those hurt feelings acknowledged. I went on on a tangent, sorry, LOL. I will never not miss Mejibray, but I feel like the quality of 8P-SB is improving. I went to their tour more recently and Koichi is definitely a lot more comfortable, both are happy, and Genki utilizes his voice in more interesting ways live than he does on the recorded singles. There’s not as much screaming, but it’s still there and in interesting ways. I think I lost my train of thought, but yeah, it’s really not as bad as people think, it’s getting better, but it is radically different.
  10. Idk I like them all - the last two tracks give me a nostalgic feeling somehow, like whether that was the intention or not it was the vibe I got and I was feeling it

    I mean even if sales are falling, in a country where schools still utilize fax machines I have a hard time imagining the death of CDs any time soon.

    Jealous Mejibray fans.

    Mejibray is a very important band to me, but I’ve said before that I can understand the haters. Originally, Tsuzuku’s voice did not do it for me: it took me seeing them live on a whim to get into then, and I still maintain that a good chunk of their songs are better live than they were recorded. That said, I think Mejibray may draw excessive vitriol due to the amount of exposure it had and the kind same of younger fans they attracted. I’m pretty sure this has been the consensus every time the discussion has cropped up.

    I mean, if people feel like the environment is too toxic for them, that’s valid. I’d never trade my time as a Mejibray fan for anything, but tbh I didn’t really know want I was getting myself into with Mejibray since I went to my first live on a whim, LOL. Man the overseas fan base harassed the shit out of me.

    Combination of things. They’re not everyone’s cup of tea. Not everyone likes the direction they took. Mejibray fans can be obsessive and grating. I do think some of the hate stems from the same reason people give Nickelback and other bands shit - not to remotely compare popularity, but considering how small the vkei fan base is, if you’re seeing something you’re not into everywhere, it’s going to annoy you more.
