    Here's a selfie with everyone that was still around for the very end of my Jrock panel at Acen this year.
  3. I found that Electric Cucumber cover hilarious.

    I'm not a fan of the vocals either, but I enjoy the mood, so I'm a bit conflicted.
  5. Sounds like a killer show - having seen Envy live before, I can't imagine them without Tetsuya and I'm so glad to hear that he's back.
  6. Just seeing this now...fuck.

    One can only hope that cover was approved after his death, because lord it's awful.

    Looks legit to me.
  10. Tribute impulse? More like they need impulse control. Still, this looks far more interesting than the last handful of hide tribute albums.

    I generally don't give a shit about music videos, and this one is no exception, but I am happy to hear them putting out new music. I agree that the song is pretty average for 8-eit, but I still enjoyed it and it has me hopeful.

    Well, that certainly is a thing...
  13. If there was a single year I am most nostaligic for in Jrock, I think it would have to be 2007. D'espairsRay, Girugamesh, and Rentrer en Soi sit at the top of this list for me. That said, I think there are a few albums that I still look back at fondly that didn't make it on to the list: Abingdon Boys School - Self Titled I played the shit out of this release. I was always a fan of Takanori Nishikawa, but never really got in to TM's style. But in catchy alt rock with lots of electronics...oh man. Lynch. - The Avoided Sun I'm not sure this will ever go down as the best lynch album, but in 2007 their formula wasn't even close to feeling stale yet. I still really enjoy this album, even if it does have some stinker tracks on it (I'm looking at you, "the Universe.") D - Neo Culture: Beyond the World This would mark the last D album that I really enjoyed. Blood Stain Child - Mozaiq Man, I don't feel like this album holds up to time at all, but that euro-trance metal was something that was really enjoyable at the time. Dir en Grey - The Marrow of a Bone This album felt like a dud to me at the time, and marked the full on shift in Diru's style. That said, I still found myself still really getting pumped up by some of the tracks (Grief being the main one here) The Marrow of a Bone - Bu-ikikaesu When I think of MtH, this is the album I think of. I'll admit though, I don't think I listened to this on in 2007 though. Kagrra, - shizuku Far from Kagrra,'s strongest work, but there formula was so lovely and I couldn't help but enjoy their more laid back approach they were taking. That and I think what Kagrra, was doing has never really been replicated.
  14. My wife and I started watching The Ancient Magus Bride and My Hero Academia. We're only 4 episodes in to Magus, and while I love the atmosphere, it might be a bit too slow, and I haven't been able to suspend my disbelief on the main characters comfort with the situation and how uncomfortable her and bone dude's relationship is. Hero on the other had is managing to take a stale formula and making it fresh, though I worry how long it can hold up. The biggest problem I have with shounens is that often get stretch out too long and outstay their charm.
