    Returning to the idol kei topic.
     
    Nowadays, when I watch/listen back to ViViD —one of the first VK bands I came across and one that I enjoyed the most— I think I can acknowledge the hints that actually indicate how heavily they were produced to appeal to the crowds in an idol way. So, they surely weren't that pure and artistical about VK and stuff, and of course could have had more than one A-side produced by one or more ghost-writters...
     
    But, let's be honest: can we ignore the fact that the arranges of their songs were fucking brilliant, and so were their skills as interpreters? Many, many kudos to Reno's polished approach to shredded guitar, IV's hyper-melodic bass lines, and Shin's VERY well managing of the VK vocal traits —whose exaggeration in some cases ruined great capacities forever, like what happened with Nightmare's Yomi— while at the same time enduring a full show delivering a constant and massive vocal flow.
     
    This band was a fucking thrill, although the commercial intention of their project became so blatantly notorious in their last releases that many fans (myself included) lost interest almost inmmediatly.
     
    That said, I really wish that nowadays' idol kei bands, even if they put their efforts to make that kind of career into the scene, at least make something commercial in the level of the quality bands like ViViD did back in their time.

    By the end of the summer, there will be no more uploads from me. I've been called a bitch, elitist, e.t.c. I spend my hard earn money to share bands I love with you guys. I've been with TW/MH since the beginning, some of you even have my personal cell number. I'm trying a new twitter @nameinbiography I'm not very social-able. You can also catch me in discord. I'll still be here giving my opinions or fan girling or stuff. I don't dislike any of you, some of you even make me laugh with your wits and I respect you for it. I'm very approachable so don't be afraid of me cause I'm more afraid of you.

    I am new to this website. Been listening to some old albums and watching live DVDs (mostly Gazette lol) and was looking for online discussions to talk about albums, songs and live performances. Also, I would like to chat about band/live culture in general. Not interested in talking about bandmen/their personal lives. 

    I am originally from Europe, in my mid 20s currently living in Japan. よろしくねー

    I do not understand musically limiting yourself to one genre and I also don’t understand going out of your way to express you don’t like something to someone who clearly likes the thing. Do people expect to change others opinions on what they like? Stop trying to decide what other people should and shouldn’t like? Stop trying to dictate what is and isn’t good music? Just listen to what you like and talk positively about the things you like. If you don’t like it, why waste energy on it?

    I can't believe nicolas is going to livestream their new dvd after just releasing it on sale... and it isn't even sold out on the website :(( I mean, this is super sweet of them to do and hopefully they can get a bunch of donations during the stream. I think this time I should have money to donate because last time I didn't :(( I miss them and I still feel so bad. They released a new album and then corona happened so they didn't get to perform for their new tour at alllll. And they were going to a bunch of people's hometowns and shit to play these tiny af venues (ok majority of vk venues are small but you get it).  If we're lucky, the final in July can continue but it's too early to say.
     
    TLDR: i miss nicolas, i feel bad they couldnt tour, pls watch their live steam and donate if you can
