    Ah, sadly I think the vk scene is dying on us. I mean, there are some youngsters, sure, but they are not enough. And a lot of old vk fans stop listening to it. I’ve also had breaks in between where I’d been less interested, but overall I still enjoyed the music, so there’s that. I’d say that anyone over 25 can be considered a granny in the vk scene 😄

    I relate on you on so many levels, it’s not even funny anymore. just went with friends to a gazette concert and we called each other vk grannies, so there is that. Also discovered vk when I was 13. Welcome to the forum!

    I honestly was a tiny bit disappointed by the album. The songs sure are catchy, but for me, some sounded like Metal Schlager (international fans might not mean what I mean by Schlager...but German fans will know, and they will curse me for saying this.) Deutschland is a great song, love the atmosphere, the lyrics (although I first was bit irritated by all the random pronouns used in the verses.) For me personally, the album is a bit too soft. On top of that I feel as if most of these topics have been done by them before...but their counterparts are way better. It's still a good album, I just exspected a bit more depth in some places (lyric wise), and an overall heavier sound. Puppe was my personal highlight, btw!

    Welcome! Living in rural areas in Germany is hell for VK fans, I know that from experience ;D I hope you will get the chance to see gazette live this weekend. I'll be at the show in Cologne. If you want to meet there, just PM me!

    Our stories are very similar! The age we discovered Ancafe, how we both loved Bou. I feel you about not seeing bands live because you’re not living in a big city. I live in a city now, so I have more opportunities (although I still have to travel for vk concerts), but growing up, I couldn’t do much. However, I was able to see ancafe in my teenage years because my parents wanted to visit my aunt and uncle, and they lived near Cologne. Since the concert was on a Friday, my parents agreed to take my friend and I to the location. It was bound to a condition that I had to fulfill, but that was okay. A year later a friend’s mother took us to Cologne to see a Miyavi concert. So I had some opportunities, but they were scarce. But I think seeing a band live, does not make you more of a fan. As cheesy as that sounds, but it’s more about what’s in your heart. I think this band meant a lot to us when we were growing up, and it still does. Just listening to summer dive on my way to university, and it’s gonna be a great day just because of that 🥰

    I mean, it might change the scene a bit. I quite enjoyed going to vk stores in shinjuku, it's always nice to look at a physical collection of CDs, but that is just the 90s kid in me. However, the rest is basically going to stay the same, I guess. People are just going to download the music. However, I think this'll take some time. You talked about the west, saying that record stores are a rarity there. I can honestly not say the same about Europe. While sales of physical CDs have been declining, there are still huge record stores here. And since Japan loves places such as book of or twoer records, they will continue buying it + I think companies in Japan have their ways of attracting people to buy physical albums. Take k-pop for instance: in Europe, people often download the songs illegally, and then buy the physical CD. Simply because they like the design/want to support the band/want the special features. VK is the same in that respect.

  9. To all of you lovely people here, this is the chance to introduce yourself! You don't need to get personal, you can just post who you are, maybe your hobbies, and what you like about AnCafe/when you started listening to them and why? My name is AwesomeNyappy. I started listening to Ancafe when I was 13. Bou was still in the band (haha, I'm old), and he used to be my favourite member. I absolutely adored his style and used to print out pictures of the band that I would keep in a folder or pin to my wall. A friend of mine once have me a mix CD with Japanese music that an older friend of hers compiled (she was big into visual kei and cosplay.) I'd already been a fan of manga and anime for many years, so this wasn't quite of stretch. At first I thought the music sounded a bi weird, but then I got really into it. AnCafe was my first and will probably be my favourite visual kei band forever. Their sound used to be light, full of hope and yet there was a hint of melancholy and sadness about it too. I have fond memories of listening to the band when I was on holiday as a young teenager. They were also my first concert. I had just turned 16, and it was one of the best experiences of my life. Managed to again see them in 2014 in Berlin, and am very thankful for that. When they disbanded, it felt as if an era in my life had come to an end/as if I had lost a part of myself, as cheesy as that sounds. I really wanted to get their last live DVD as well, but i missed the deadline to order it by a day (I know...but I was very stressed at that time, and I wasn't even sure if I should get it for 120 euros are a lot of money.) I still try not to regret not taking the last chance to get their autographs because of how much they meant to me. I wanted this last DVD to say goodbye to them, but I guess there is nothing I can do about it now. At the same time, imagine it would've gotten lost in the mail....I would've been even sadder. Still, I now feel weird listening to them because that missed chance is on my mind (as weird as that sounds.) I don't want this regret to overshadow my love for their music. However, they meant a lot to me growing up, and while I'm not the type of person to be too bumbed my disbandments (because honestly, there are worse things in life), I'm still a bit sad that I won't see them live again. What about you?
  10. If you've followed bondS France on facebook, you might have seen their song competitions, meaning that people could vote which song they liked best. Unfortunately, I cannot insert a poll here (or at least I wouldn't know how to do it), but I think it would be fun to post two songs and let them compete against each other. You can just post your personal winner (and maybe even explain why?) I'll just start: Ese uranai - Hisokyo

    Would you send me a link? 😊
  12. AwesomeNyappy

    Ah yes. Germany is usually very expensive, but I guess there is not much difference to France, so thanks for your insight

    Mhhh...I paid 40 euros for dir e grey, so I was suprised the gazette would charge such a price. I also didn't go see versailles because their tickets were 50 euros, and I thought that was a bit too expensive. So I'm not sure if I'm going to see the gazette for 60 euros, but I guess they'll be sold out anyways.
  14. AwesomeNyappy

    Is it true that the German concert tickets for their last tour were around 60 euros? Does anyone have information on that?
  15. AwesomeNyappy

    What DVD do you mean?
