    Same here. The best I can draw are stick figures and some basic geometric shapes, lol. (I think you have to press the CC button for the English translation.)

    I got into VK thanks to some friends in middle school who showed me bands like An Cafe (and also thanks to anime shows). But I've lost contact with most of them, and the last time I saw them, they didn't have an interest in VK anymore. In high school, it was something I mainly enjoyed alone other than one girl who was half-Japanese and knew about it, but I'm not sure if she was a huge fan of it either. I guess it was a 'phase' for most people I knew, but as has been mentioned already, it also has played a big role in my life and remains important to me, greatly molding me into the person I am. There's only one other person I know irl who is interested in it, but she doesn't listen to it as much anymore. Thanks to places like Livejournal and MH, I've made some great friends. Some have come and went, but it's always awesome to meet new people who like VK ^^
  12. Necro-ing this thread, lol. Saw some super great choices above When it comes to Mandopop/Taiwanese music, I mainly listen to mainstream artists, including some oldies, although it sort of blends in with Cantopop, lol. Some have already been mentioned, but I listen to artists like Jay Chou, Fish Leong, Cyndi Wang, JJ Lin (technically from Singapore, but sings in Mandarin), Fahrenheit, S.H.E., Tank, Magic Power, and a bunch of others xD I'll just post some videos, lol ^^; JJ Lin - Tales of Red Cliff - It's somewhat based on the Chinese novel, "Romance of the Three Kingdoms" and has wonderful incorporation of traditional Chinese instruments. I think I once read somewhere that the person who wrote Jay Chou's lyrics wrote the lyrics for this song. Cyndi Wang - When You - A sad love song with a nice vocalist A-Mei - Full Name - She's known as the "Mandopop Queen" with a lovely, evocative voice Wilber Pan and Rainie Yang - Bu De Bu Ai - It's based off of the Korean song, Please Tell Me Why by Y Fahrenheit - Only I Have Feelings for You featuring Hebe (from S.H.E.) - A cute anime-like MV where all the guys have hopelessly fallen head-over-heels over a girl and each try to woo her heart. The song is written by JJ Lin. Magic Power - Who am I - A band that has two singers who complement each other with a DJ in their group F.I.R. - Crescent Bay - A band that has a female vocalist and a nice incorporation of traditional Chinese instruments (I think xD) Tank - Three Kingdom Love - It incorporates traditional Chinese instrumentals and (I think?) Chinese opera singing techniques. Mayday - 入陣曲 - They have lots of great songs, so I just chose a random one for this, lol. I posted two different videos, but they're the exact same song. S.H.E. - Loving You - The bittersweet love song was featured in a love drama called Down with Love. S.H.E. is a girl group with Hebe Tian who I believe is also a solo artist. I posted two videos of the same song; one is the official music video while the other contains the lyrics and unofficial English translation.

    Sadly, LGBT rights in Japan, from my understanding, are pretty much non-existent and discussions of sexuality are not widely talked about like it is in the West. It’s still considered a taboo and general attitudes towards the whole subject are negative on the whole. Not to mention the Japanese culture favors homogenization, or the group mentality, so being different among the “group” is not highly looked upon, and one would most likely be socially ostracized or even bullied (These are not my views on the subject, just something that unfortunately exists ^^;) As for the topic, as mentioned before, BL fanservice has been and will always be a thing. I don’t think it ever disappeared or went away. I guess if it brings in money/attention from the fans, it’ll be something that bands will do.

    Everyone roared with insane cheers even when it was just the roadies on the stage, lol. But it didn't really bother me too much. I thought it made for a nice, energetic atmosphere.

    As mentioned in earlier posts, the fans, not the staff, enforced the numbering and spots. The numbering of VIPs, the creation of separate lines for VIPs and GAs, were all arranged and organized by the fans themselves. In fact, the staff organizers seemed almost nonexistent. There was no line/spots that indicated where people should line up except for a few small metal barricades set up right outside of the livehouse. Also, there was also some odd discrepancies as to what the organizers reportedly said said vs. what actually happened (i.e. apparently the organizers said the meet and greet would happen before the concert even though that clearly didn't happen; they supposedly said fans had to be in line by 4:30pm, but that didn't quite matter since the staff never came outside to do a check) Aside from those oddities, everything went pretty smoothly based on where I was standing. It was also interesting to meet and listen to the many different types of fans that were attending the concert that day. For our show, aside from Ruki, Uruha seemed to be the most energetic/active, even coming up close to the fans and strutting off his stuff. It almost looked like he was ready to jump into the crowd, lol. Reita also came to the front of the stage a few times. I agree, though, Aoi was the most reserved. From what I could see, he only did something with Uruha and also came the front of the stage when the whole group joined up with Ruki. Otherwise, he was pretty "quiet" (as @platy mentioned after the live). Overall, the live was short, but it was a lot of fun. It's made me more appreciative (and a bigger fan) of their music. I was also really excited when they played Filth in the Beauty and Cockroach.
  19. Neck hurts, legs are dead, and arms are sore. Overall, a great live.
