  1. You know Koochewsen are releasing a full album in october right?

    I was surprised they are re-releasing Isso UFO!

    too bad the album has all their recently digitally released songs lol

      Yeah, I heard this new song, but thanks for the heads up that the tracklist is out.

      Super confused that this is their 1st full album though! I guess that's different from プログレ being their 1st album and last year's being their 1st "love" album, lol!

  2. Just saw Crazy Rich Asians and I loved the opening song. Gave me Shiina Ringo vibes.

     

  3. Any Kali Uchis fans here on MH? Please enjoy this ethereal goddess.

    Music boner, activated!

    Keep 'em coming, everyone! Karma Shenjing is the most surprising to me so far. Never heard of them! Are there examples of Japanese bands mimicking other Asian cultures (I can think of a handful of vaguely "Indian" ones, but that's about it; I wonder if Korean ones exist...) or were you mainly thinking outside of the music world? And yeah, I would be interested in reading critical perspectives on this kind of thing. Dammit, now I'm sad I wasn't able to deliver on that front. Lol, luv u.
  7. I don't have some grand thesis about this phenomenon, but UNiTE.'s new music video reminded me of it. Know any other Japanese bands that use "Chinese" inspiration in a song or video (costumes, setting, or even influences in the music)? Post here and feel free to discuss! ユナイト / UNiTE. D Czecho No Republic (If the embed doesn't work, play it on YouTube) 女王蜂 / Ziyoou-Vachi / QUEEN BEE (Non-YouTube PV link for "スリラ/Thriller": http://www.nicovideo.jp/watch/sm26772980)
  8. Any MHers seen Hereditary yet? I was really surprised to hear about the major split between popular and critic opinion. I personally loved it! One of my favorites this year.

      @platy I would agree with that "unsettling" is a really fitting word!
      @saishuu Toni Collette was brilliant!

      The film was a damn ride from start to finish; the only thing I'm going to say about the plot is that you'll be pissed on several characters' behalf.

      Toni Collete's performance was EVERYTHING. 

  9. fitear1590

    Yep, absolutely not feeling "Romantic Trampoline" at all. 😕
  10. I know I'm years late, but I noticed Sailor Moon Crystal was on Hulu, so I started watching it recently. I kind of love it?! I only casually watched the 90s series. It's of course a classic, but I could never bring myself to watch every single episode, because of the tedious "monster of the week" structure and the absolute milking of transformation/attack animation sequences. This remake, which I hear follows the manga much more closely, has much better pacing, a more serious tone, and a lot more variety when it comes to attacks. Some cheap CGI and nothing beats the original music, but overall, a really worthy remake, imo!

      i was not aware that it followed closely to the manga. however the animation is too awful for me to pick it up.....

      @MamoHulu has the first two seasons of the 90s series dubbed (the new Viz dub, which is quite good); I assume they will keep adding the dubbed seasons, as they become available?

      (And all 3 seasons of Crystal are in both dubbed/subs)

      Thanks for the info.

    Pretty great setlist spanning their whole career, not just the last album!
  12. I was never even a huge ViViD/SHIN fan, but this song is giving me major KIDDIE vibes. Some good ol' pop rock.

      he is one of my favorite jrock vocalists (if not my favorite, Yusa is up there too :D ) and this release was awesome :D still hopin they come back as ViViD . ViViD is the reason i discovered jrock and visual kei in particular and yeah their debut stuff was bangin (dear/take off/precious/69-II).

      Yusa is now LSN (Legendary Six Nine) vocalist, he was 4/5 of their releases, check their music if you haven't and let me know what you think about, "haze" and "memento" are my favorite.

  13. Any MHers also MoviePass users? I've only had it for about a month, but I am loving it!

  14. Just out of curiosity, have you ever followed one of your favorite musicians/actors/etc on social media, and lost your fandom for them as a result of how they act/what they post?

      No, because I don't use social media to avoid pretty much what everyone said above. I don't care about politics or drama, I can't do anything about it and so I don't want to hear about it 24/7 and get harassed because I don't have an interest.

      That would probably be the main reason I'd lose interest in someone aside obviously from some horrible act like animal abuse / child abuse.

      I only made a twitter account this year to keep up with obscure bands releases, but I log in once a week to scan over lol.

      most vk twitters are milquetoast so no not really

      I mainly follow VK band guys and japanese gyas. I avoid western artists because they won't shut up with the politics and idiotic opinions about everything that happens.

       

      I don't care about some actor's opinion on the Trump Administration or global warming.

  15. Bruh, love your Skullomania avatar. SF EX3 had the best artwork.

      and the SFEX series had (imo) the best music!!!!!
