  1. Catching the towel at CANIVAL's birthday live for Kosuke and Luvia was the first time I'd ever caught anything at any concert! I actually suspect it was thrown to me specifically because I had recently been at the Xaa Xaa live where no one responded when Kazuki asked if people were having fun and saw how devastated he looked. When Kosuke asked the same question, I waited but no one did anything at first and I got worried so I started cheering (once I started, everyone else started). After that, I caught him smiling at me a few times during the set and then he threw it where only I could catch it. I might be imagining it though! So many Nero ones! At the M-ology CORE listening event, I got to meet them wearing my Nero shirt and he hugged me! Then at an instore the following week, he remembered me! Unlike a lot of foreigners in Japan, I don't stand out very much because I have black hair/eyes so I'm always surprised when people remember me, let alone a bandman who I met for like 10-15 seconds. Then, at the signing before the Shizuoka show a few months later, I was really convinced he wouldn't remember me because I had cut off all my hair. I should have had more faith in Nero because he still knew it was me right away and this time he asked my name so he could sign it to me. He misspelled it but I don't care; I felt really special. Getting to meet You from Gosan...I know a lot of people don't like him but he was so nice and really wanted to talk to me and ask questions. I mean, the guy doing the chekis was gone for some reason and I didn't want to be presumptuous so I was patiently waiting for him to come back but You called out to me and started a conversation. When I've met other bandmen, sometimes it's kinda awkward and I don't know what to say to them but he was easy to talk to. When we took the cheki, both of us immediately did the Zombie's Love Letter claws, and it was the perfect final experience before I left Japan.
  2. Yep. The red one has the song Sakashima End Roll which completes the maxi single of that name (if you've ever wondered why that single didn't have a song with that name...that's why XD)
  3. Ooh, did you manage to get this with the DVD still with it? It's pretty cool

  5. Mine does have the panties still, lol they look just like these
  6. This looks awesome, can’t wait!
  7. It's strange, I keep hearing this horrible stuff about Gosan and I did not experience or witness it once and I saw them four times in Japan (2 taiban and 2 oneman). After the last oneman I stuck around for the mini talk and polaroid meets and Yuu was a total sweetheart to me! He even dropped the yankee accent so I didn't have to struggle to understand him. The crazy furi is a huge part of why I love their lives so much and I go all out, even if I make mistakes in the more complicated parts.
  8. This is a question for anyone who is living or has lived in Japan and gone to lives here. Have you found yourself listening to songs for the first time and heard some part of the music that makes you think you know which common furitsuke movement happens there? Just today I was listening to an old Gazette B-side and thought at one point, "this part feels like oritatami." It's been happening a lot in the past couple of weeks for bands I've never even seen live before and I'm curious if others have experienced it.
  9. idk With a band I love, I often dislike the new album at first listen because it's different than what I'm used to hearing. Once I get past that I usually love it! I didn't have that problem with this album though. I had it really, really bad with under-world though.
  10. This reminds me! I recently found these pictures on my old photobucket account of my hand sewn Merry shirts. It was impossible for me to get legit merch in America back then (around 2007) so I finally decided to just make my own. Attempt 1 Front and back design: Yeah, not great f(^^;) I do really like how the umbrella came out though! I am much more pleased with the second one, which is cross stitch (I am way more confident with cross stitch than embroidery) and I drafted the pattern by hand over the course of a month. The long blood drip in the logo has gotten a little crooked over the years so I think I'll redo that part when I go back to the US next week.
  11. Mano released a statement on Twitter today. Maybe someone with better Japanese than mine can summarize it?
  12. Fuck. I was coincidentally listening to them when I saw the news on Twitter. I hoped I was misreading it and came here to see if anything was posted and...yeah. They were my favorite new band too
  13. Canival towel-This is the first item I've ever caught at a concert! Plus, it was at the Luvia and Kosuke birthday live! Merry Koseiha Blend~tasogare~ This is, hands down, my favorite cover art on any album Signed: Merry Calling single (Nero, Yuu, Gara) I got this signed at my first ever instore last month. If I had my entire collection with me, I would have gotten something else signed, but Calling has always been one of my favorite songs of theirs so I'm still very happy. Signed: Merry M-ology (Nero, Tetsu) I got this signed before the show in Shizuoka last weekend and Nero actually asked for my name and signed it to me! Signed: Gore Hoozuki-kun I went to their live right before I moved to Tokyo so they made an exception for me and signed this at the show, since I wouldn't be able to go to any instores Merry CORE Limited M-ology--I was at the Hibiya Democratic live, so I love getting to relive the show with the bonus DVD&CD Merry SCI FI DVD--This is my favorite Merry DVD and I bought it when it came out, right before my study abroad ended Merry History books with CD+DVD--No particular reason besides these being very difficult to get my hands on All three Hyde 'coffin singles'--Really cool packaging and amazing ballads? Yes please! Pierrot Dramatic Neo Anniversary+Yuuyami Suicide--During my initial high school exchange, I discovered Vkei for the first time. In Shizuoka City in 2005, there were no stores that specialized in the genre or even had a dedicated vkei section. I mainly depended on Sumiya and Virgin's Jrock sections to have the the newest releases by the biggest bands mixed in with the normal bands. Besides those places, I regularly went to Book Off and hoped for good luck. That is what happened with Pierrot's DNA, I found the single for 100 yen and thought, "this looks like it might be Visual," and bought it. I really liked it and got lucky again with Yuuyami Suicide a few years later. I'm really happy to have stumbled onto this band! Non-Vkei Stuff: Alice Cooper Hey Stoopid on Vinyl (original release) Alice Cooper The Life and Crimes of Alice Cooper Alice Cooper The Last Temptation comics (all 3 issues) Labyrinth OST on Vinyl
  14. It's pretty difficult to find that old single though. I've been trying to find it for months
  15. I heard it at the CORE event yesterday and I completely agree, it's a great album! The only songs I didn't love were Sight Glass and Black Flag Symptom but I didn't hate either of them. They'll just need a little more time to grow on me! I loved Mass Control the most I think, and I was surprised that Nero did it (because I never did like Charlie, even though I'm a hard core Nero fan :X )
