  1. I created this thread because I'm curious about how visual kei fandoms behave. Yes, I already have the idea that SOME fans can be...crazy, to say the least. But, I want to get deeper into the visual kei fandom AND know the fan club names (i.e.: The Gazette's fan club name is Heresy, DIAURA's fan club name is Gumin, etc.). If there is already a thread similar to this, feel free to send me the link there. I guess I could start by saying, for example, comparing bands to each other will definitely open a can of worms. So all you have to do is name a visual kei fandom and a few words and phrases associated with them that the fandom DOESN'T want to hear either because of a sad, traumatic event that happened or because of pure annoyance. In short, offend a visual kei fandom as quickly as possible using a few words and phrases.
  2. Visual Kei and Japanese pop/sub cultures in general seem to have many intense fans or fan communities that live and breath the art-form or artist in question. I think it would be interesting to discuss just how heavily we follow our favorite bands, and what lengths we go to in our appreciation and / or worship. As for me, I am a pretty big fan, I like to get all versions of singles / albums, and full discographies of favorite bands, even Best albums... I follow on Ameblo, browse Twitters when I can`t sleep. Like to know which Kanji all band members use in their names, etc... As for picks (plectrum), Cheki, etc... For my favorite band I love these, but for other bands I couldn`t care less for plectrum, etc... I will just give them to people who seem to want them. Band-shirts I always long for. I guess my own style is influenced by VK too... Here are some questions to get the ball rolling on the conversation, feel free to answer them and / or type a little about how much you follow VK bands!: 1: Do you buy multiple versions of releases, or buy at all? (Judgement-Free-Zone) 2: Do you collect cheki or other non-music related items from bands? 3: Follow them on Ameblo, Twitter? 4: Would you follow them on the street? 5: Dig through their trash? (Judgment-Free-Zone) 6: Does Visual Kei or other forms of your musical taste influence your style or personal life? 7: Desire to move or visit Japan influenced by music? 8: Do you read dirt-sheets of bands, like rumours, gossip, etc...? 9: Ever fantasize about being friends with band members? (JFZ) 10: Do you want to be in a Visual Kei band (or any other kind of band)? Feel free to speak of other genres and your fandom as well if you please.
