    I'm really sad I couldn't choose oyaji kei for my favorite type of visual kei. I'm also with everyone else with the last question. Maybe you could have mixed some more mainstream or other types of vk acts from that period into the selection pool or include a wider generation range of artists by including some earlier era vk acts and/or some recent vk acts.

    Gaz is now forever going to be replace by someone that's been in a band with Okamoto Ryoji and Oonishi Hiroyuki whenever Malice Mizer or Kneuklid Romance do their one off revivals? First Sakura, and now Kaede. It amuses me to see this as a fan of both Zigzo and test-No. to see this as a pattern.

    The only VK-related movie I ever watched was Dynamite Tommy's Attitude and I own it because why not have a horrible movie with a bunch of musicians from the first wave of VK or the late '80s Japanese hard rock scene that can't act what so ever. I don't know how many people here have seen it, but it's one of those movies you have to watch to see the how much of a hot mess it is as it is super hard to describe what's going on 90% of the time.

    I wasn't really a huge fan of Matina, I always prefered bands that were from Soleil and Tears Music/Enamel/Key Party more. The bands from Matina that I did enjoyed a lot were Madeth Gray'll, Mist of Rouge, and Vidoll.

    To be honest, I have gotten more friends, although most of them being in their 40s or 50s, in real life for being a fan of Loudness and EZO than VK ever did for me. However, VK did manage to snag me my boyfriend of 15+ years. It's hilarious to tell people that we started to date because I had pictures of Dir en grey and Malice Mizer hanging in my locker in the 8th grade and my SO overreacted when he noticed because he was a closeted VK fan and thought he would never find another VK fan in our tiny, country bumpkin town. We ended up getting a lot of our close friends into VK during high school, but I'm pretty sure most of them don't listen to anything related to VK anymore.

    Just a tiny haul this time around. I have a really huge haul coming within the next couple of weeks, as long as it doesn't get stuck in shipping limbo.

    I went with what albums I think are the best VK albums, not necessary my personal favorites. Amphibian - DOPPELGÄNGER (1993) L'arc~en~Ciel - Heavenly (1995) GLAY - pure soul (1998) Dir en grey - Gauze (1999) Luna Sea - Mother (1994) If I went with my personal favorites, it would more or less look like this: Aura - THESAURAS (1990) Color - 激突!! (1989) BAISER - 華 (1999) BY-SEXUAL - Culture Shock (1990) Decameron - 名曲アルバム (1990)

    Waaaay back in 1998, I first discovered visual kei while I was staying at my then 21 year old sister's dorm room for the weekend. This was the first time in my life I was ever on the internet. I was searching on Yahoo or some other very 1998 search engine for Pikachu/Pokemon stuff since as a 9 year old kid, I was crazy about Pikachu. I some how managed to stumbled upon an English languaged Dead Pop Stars fansite and was really weirded out that one of the members (Kenzi) was a huge Pikachu fan. I totally forgot what visual kei was after finding that site until a year later. So in 1999, we finally had a computer and internet at my house. Also, I was now super into Digimon and was active in a lot of the Digimon EZ Boards that were around. On one of these forums, I had two forum besties that were into visual kei. One was a HUGE Glay fan and liked all of those visual kei bands that were more mainstream/not over the top looking groups. The other one was more into groups like Malice Mizer and Dir en grey; the more over the top the group's look was, the more she liked them. The one that was into the more over the top groups one day sent me a link to La'Mule's song "Inspired" that was hosted on someone's Geocities website. I remember it took me over an hour to download the 96kbps mp3 file. Oh the pain and the horror of dial-up internet. But after I was able to download the song, I couldn't wait to listen to it since I thought La'Mule looked so cool and really wanted to like the band. I don't remember my reaction was because that was like 20 years ago, but it was a positive one as I am still a huge La'Mule fan and I managed to stick with visual kei for all of those years. I just try not to interact with the fandom that much in the last 10 years due to the toxicity that some times reeks the vk fandom.

    Welp. I think nothing I previously listed will ever top this CD. Color's Galaxy (European Pressing), which broke the bank on how much I ever wanted to spend on a rare release.

    I didn't realize that J-XYZ rebranded itself as Japan Discoveries. I have never used them as Japan Discoveries since I thought the website looked shady as hell and I figured they sold bootlegs. I remember having bought from them when they were J-XYZ and had two vastly different experiences with them. The first time I bought from them, I got my item (a hide plushie) in a timely matter. But then I bought from them like a couple months/a year later, and they never shipped out the item (a D'espairsRay CD) and I never got a refund for it.
