    Sho is still totally selling the Macabre-era Kyo look in those promo pics so for all we know they could come out swinging in full pleather at the next gig

    I really hope they fill out the lineup. I'm not stoked on them dropping the visuals, but I like their music enough to not be all that bugged by it. Was crossing my fingers we'd see a lineup reveal at this live or something, but kind of disheartened that it wasn't the case.

    "brace yourselves"

    After listening everything they've done consistently, I do feel his Kyo-isms are most prevalent in CHEDOARA rather than their singles - he vocally sounds much different to me across those releases. Regarding the inhales, I'm still not fully convinced that's all he's doing. A lot of the more recent live videos + when I saw them in May have me thinking he's exhaling some of those screams now - a lot more power behind it.

    Major bummer 😔

    Reaching out here cuz it seems appropriate. Planning on stepping outside of my comfort zone a bit and trying a bit of makeup. Really want to go for some rougher looks a la modern Kyo or some of the Nagoya-kei bands. No clue where to start, though, in terms of makeup brands/must-own stuff. Watched a few makeup tutorials on YT and since I'm finding that I wanna go somewhere between VK and "goth" it's difficult to find something that really hits both marks in the middle. What do the people of MH use for makeup? What do you consider staples? Please help me. I am clueless.

    You really summed up my feelings on them. They're unlike any other band to me and that "comfort" feeling really drives the point home.

    Baseless statement of wishful thinking - plz let Katsuya come play guitar so we can mash Slothreat sound with DIMLIM sound 💀

    UGH this is such a bummer. Wishing them the best and hoping the best for the future of the band.
  12. Only commenting because I've seen the point made a few times, but...casting Ariel, a character whose race plays 0 part into who she is with a non-white actor is absolutely not the same as casting canonically PoC characters with white actors. From GitS to Airbender to everything in between, those are not comparable scenarios and I don't understand how it's hard to see that.
  13. anyone here play FFXIV? just got back on it and literally none of my friends are playing nowadays so i've been running solo for the most part. drop your char name and i'll add you!

    Grew up in a very religious (Southern Baptist) household. My parents were fairly lenient about media and such compared to friends' parents so I'm always grateful for that, though there were still those awkward "now that you watch anime do you worship the devil???" moments. Kind of fell further away the older I got and the more I learned about the world and interacted with non-Christian folks - especially because many of the "secular" people I spent time with acted far more "Christian" than most of the religious folks I encountered. Got tired of being judged due to my general interest in niche subcultures and not looking like some cookie-cutter buzzcut n' Oakleys youth group bro so I of course developed some deep resentment issues regarding that part of things when I was in my teens/early 20s. Past that, it's the fairly typical story of "I simply can't associate with those types" in post-2016 America. The cognitive dissonance of Christian Trumpers is all kinds of amazing and alarming because I simply cannot fathom the mental gymnastics one must do to think it's a cohesive way to believe. All of that on top of western Christianity being an inherently racist and homophobic institution and I just dumped it all at once. That being said, now that the smoke has cleared from my "last straw" moment with religion, I do find myself reinvesting in spirituality in a number of ways. Part of me still wants to believe in the idea or image of Jesus I knew growing up, but it's hard to not connect it to what I see before me now. There may still be a "fear of the other" implanted in me that leads me back to that place, but I'm comfortable enough with myself to realize that sometimes whatever calms the anxiety is valuable regardless. Other parts of me find more pagan-leaning ideas very compelling from a mythological standpoint and the amount of reverence I saw in Japanese religious practice really struck me. Visiting temples and the sheer beauty of them while still giving a certain sense of humility is so unlike what I'm used to seeing in America that it really inspired me to think more about the power of spirituality. I had a quiet, personal moment at a small shrine in the woods that will likely stick with me forever in a positive way that is unlike anything I've felt from western religion. I suppose that leads to my final point of frustration with most western Christianity in that it pretty much deletes any and all spirituality and mysticism from its own "canon" so to speak. I was laughed at and put down for ever expressing interest in the metaphysical side of things outside of "God's plan." I found that everything was always presented to me the opposite of how I needed it. When I wanted to seek out the spiritual side I was basically told that was "not correct," but when I was dealing with real, tangible problems all I ever got were statements of "oh, we're praying for you!" It was too pick-and-choose. Too uncertain of itself. I don't like that. Sorry for the ramble - this is a topic really close to my heart and I'm pretty sure most people close to me are tired of my tirades on it, but I truly believe western Christianity is presented in a way that is very damaging at long-term levels and I am still, as a full grown adult person, dealing with the ramifications of what I was made to believe in my youth.
