  1. Here is my latest translation, a song from the first single of Initial'L, probably the one I liked most so far. I hope that you like it! Kanji: 暗い暗い音も消えた海は 泣いても叫んでも光がない孤独な檻 (へや) 潰れた理想と夢 それは絶望の証明 守るべきものが無くて 矢うものも無かった 何を望めばいいの? 何を信じればいいの? 言葉にならない声が 胸の隙間空回る そこには求めてた物 何も無いから どこまでも羽ばたくように もし未来が消えても いつかみた夢を目指して 舞い上がるこのパトス グレイの空に 雨の槍が落ちて 乾いた心を 打ち抜くように濡らしてゆく 錆び付く隙間くぐった 鼓動まで乱れ打って ほとばしる無情の罠 軋まれた時 (とき)の中で どこにも居場所 無かった 戻りたい場所 無かった だからそうさいつかきっと 重い鎖たち切って 何処でも飛んで行けるよ この場所から 果てしなく続く 未来は 遮るものは 無いよ 終わらない夢の向こうで 望んだのは永遠 どこまでも羽ばたくように もし未来が消えても いつかみた夢を目指して 舞い上がるこのパトス 夜明け前 今なら僕は 飛び立てる気がするよ 吹き抜ける風を感じて 舞い上がれこの空に Romaji: Kurai kurai oto mo kieta umi wa Naite mo saken demo hikari ga nai kodokuna heya Tsubureta risou to yume sore ha zetsubou no shoumei Mamoru beki mono ga nakute bushi nau mono mo nakatta Nani o nozomeba ii no? Nani o shinjireba ii no? Kotoba ni naranai koe ga mune no suki ma sora mawaru Soko ni wa motome teta mono nani mo nai kara Doko made mo habataku you ni Moshi mirai ga kiete mo Itsuka mita yume o meza shite Mai agaru kono phatos Gurei no sora ni ame no yari ga ochite Kawaita kokoro o uchi nuku you ni nurashite yuku Sabitsuku sukima kugutta kodou made midare uchi tte Hoto bashiru mujou no wana kishima reta toki no naka de Doko ni mo ibasho nakatta modoritai basho nakatta Dakara sou sa itsuka kitto omoi kusari tachi kitte Doko demo tonde yukeru yo kono basho kara hateshinaku tsudzuku mirai wa Saegiru mono wa nai yo Owaranai yume no mukou de Nozonda no wa eien Doko made mo habataku you ni Moshi mirai ga kiete mo Itsuka mita yume o mezashite Maiagaru kono phatos Yoake mai ima nara boku wa Tobitateru ki ga suru yo Fuki nukeru kaze wo kanjite Maiagare kono sora ni English: The sea where the dark dark noise fades Crying and screaming, there’s not the light A lonely cage. A destroyed ideal and a dream, this is a proof of despair There’s nothing to protect, because there isn’t. For what I can hope? In what should I believe? A voice which mustn’t speak turns around the empty of my chest. I don’t have nothing of what I was looking for. As flapping everywhere Even if the future disappears Aiming to a dream which I saw someday This growing pathos. A rain spear falls in the grey sky which wets for piercing a dry heart. A rusty emptiness hits the disorder which passes through my heartbeat In the time when a roaring endless trap creaks So one day I will certainly cut the heavy chains. Flying everywhere you want from this place. The lasting endless future There’s nothing to block Beyond the endless dream What I wanted was the eternity. As flapping everywhere Even if the future disappears Aiming to a dream which I saw someday This growing pathos. Before the dawn now as I am I feel to fly away I feel the wind blowing through Soaring in this sky. Kanji/Romaji from Jpopasia Translation is mine, so credit me before posting it elsewhere!
  2. Hey So I'm selling some of the stuff I have [CDs are Japan Edition unless it's said to be EU] [shipping fees are: depends of the amount of CD you buy Ask for Pictures if you need it Everything gets shipped from France FOR LATIN AMERICA BUYERS: your post offices in Latin America seems to be shit (like really) so please understand that parcel may take a huge amount of time to arrive, and they don't seem to give a shit about tracking codes and don't scan it as they arrive so it doesn't get updated anymore. Furthermore as long as the parcel leaves France, I can't be held responsible for any loss Please note: I can't be held responsible for any broken case, when CDs leave my house, they are in great condition, if not like new, and I wrap them carefully to prevent any damage. It happened before that CDs arrive completely broken, this is most likely due to post offices putting heavy stuff on letters and small packages, result is broken cases. Everything is now in a google sheet, easier to read and keep track of ! enjoy the more than 480 CDs on this list ! https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/19RE1gmDJEe2uH_ujdOMksgymp_Yp1HoifFcJWbkmnG0/edit?usp=sharing Koda Kumi Bon Voyage Fanclub Edition 20€ Bon Voyage CD+DVD edtion 10€ Live Tour 2011 Déjavu (Live CD) 10€ Live Tour 2013 Japonesque (Live DVD) 15€ Hall Tour 2014 Bon Voyage (Live DVD) 15€ Goodies (shirt, hoodies etc) ペンタゴン / Pentagon T-Shirt onesize 25€ Chekis & Photos All Chekis & photos can be seen here, prices are put on the pictures. https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.10208007964179904.1073741830.1322358660&type=1&l=5a043bce6b PM me if you want to buy any of those, thank you Please PM an offer for the Tenten cheki if you are interested in it, there's no fixed price yet.

  4. (I apologize in advance if this isn't the right place to post this) Um... Even as a fan, I don't know how I feel about this... I feel happy for him, but at the same time, I'm like "Why???"... I get it, it's a Visual Kei app and stuff, but... I just don't know... EDIT: Found an English Version:
  5. So I have previously had this discussion with "JILUKA" winning beating "FIXER" by 72% of the votes. So with their new mini-albums released last month I thought this would be a good time to re-open this discussion. So this one can be view two different ways either you can judge weather "JILUKA" is still better than "FIXER" or you simply judge the mini-albums only. I'll set up the poll so you can't vote for the minis and the bands themselves or just the bands if you prefer. Oh and unrelated but they toured together recently as well which is pretty awesome VS. FIGHT!!!
  6. My Japanese still sucks, but this looked simple so I took a shot at it. I feel like I probably still missed the mark on at least a few of those starred lines though. If you have any corrections, feel free to let me know. ラブ+MUSIC / LOVE + MUSIC Lyrics: Lime Music: Kousuke Uhh, what did you eat yesterday?

Sometimes, I get so sick and worried from the darkness that I can’t sleep The news is depressing Look, there’s a shortage of love People who don’t know the meaning of pain Are bearing scars and being hurt****** Give the world love + Look, love makes it go round Still, I’ll give it to you Love + music, yeah!!

  7. For the second week in a row I reference the Gazette during a review of some new VK. This time while reviewing ゴシップ's new single. This is @inartistic's excellent post about Ains/Yukika I referenced in the vid:
  8. Driving around my new home and reviewing the new mini-album from Miztavla (which is available for streaming on Spotify and probably other places!) Let me know what you thought of the mini.
  9. Heya everybody! So a week or so ago, I promised I was in the works of something special for the site, and here it is! Okay, so I associate with a good amount of guys who were active in the visual kei scene. Most of them retired, some of them are still active. So, I decided to reach out to figure out what their top 5 visual kei bands were! I've gotten seven responses, so I thought I'd share them with you all, since maybe some of you would be interested, especially those who are super hardcore into old school kei like I am. Enjoy!

  10. Here's another translation, this time of the live-limited song by Diaura released last February (this one was quite cryptic in some point but I hope to have made evident the meaning) Kanji: I sing for you belive'n universe still I live...still I live... 終わりなき舞台の上で 傷付きながら それでも光へ また踏み出していく 強い雨の日も光のない灰空の日にも 決して離さずに 僕の手を強く繋いでいくれたね 遠き日の影に置き去りにされたままの歌も 決して色褪せず揺るぎない僕を映し出していた 猛然と吐き出す衝動 カラカラと空回る 猛然と吐き出す衝動 降り注ぐ声 次なる時へ この夜を駆けてゆく 無の世界で 何もかもを失っても 君へと伝う I sing for you belive'n universe still I live...still I live... 終わりなき舞台の上で 傷付きながら それでも光へ また踏み出していく 慰めの言葉も心無い愛情も 何もかもを拒む日々に 「どうして僕は生きるの 傷を背負い何処へ行くの?」 問い掛けてた 狡猾に捻じ曲がる回答 カラカラと空回る 猛然と吐き出す衝動 降り注ぐ声 次なる時へ この夜を駆けてゆく 無の世界で 何もかもを失っても 君へと伝う I sing for you belive'n universe still I live...still I live... 終わりなき舞台の上で 傷付きながら それでも光へ また踏み出していく Romaji: I sing for you belive'n universe still I live...still I live... owari naki butai no ue de kizu tsukinagara soredemo hikari e mata fumidashite iku Tsuyoi ame no hi mo hikari no nai haizora no hi ni mo kesshite hanasazu ni boku no te wo tsuyoku tsunaide ite kureta ne tooki hi no kage ni okizari ni sareta mama no uta mo kesshite iroasezu yuruginai boku wo utsushidashite ita Mouzen to hakidasu shoudou karakara to sora mawaru mouzen to hakidasu shoudou Furisosogu koe tsuginaru toki e kono yoru wo kakete yuku mu no sekai de nani mo kamo wo ushinatte mo kimi e to tsutau I sing for you belive'n universe still I live...still I live... owari naki butai no ue de kizu tsukinagara soredemo hikari e mata fumidashite iku Nagusame no kotoba mo kokoro nai aijou mo nani mo kamo wo kobamu hibi ni 'doushite boku wa ikiru no kizu wo shoi doko e iku no?' toikake teta Koukatsu ni nejimagaru kaitou karakara to sora mawaru koukatsu ni nejimagaru kaitou Mouzen to hakidasu shoudou karakara to sora mawaru mouzen to hakidasu shoudou Furisosogu koe tsuginaru toki e kono yoru wo kakete yuku mu no sekai de nani mo kamo wo ushinatte mo kimi e to tsutau I sing for you belive'n universe still I live...still I live... owari naki butai no ue de kizu tsukinagara soredemo hikari e mata fumidashite iku Translation: I sing for you belive'n universe still I live…still I live… On an endless stage Still while I carry a wound to the light And I am going to make a step forward. In the days of strong rain and even in the ones with the grey sky and without light Don't ever leave my hand, which was strongly connected Songs became as they are left behind to the shadow of the distant days I never fade and I reveal myself steady. Impulse of spitting out savagely Turning around the sky Impulse of spitting out savagely. A voice which downpours to the next moment This night runs away Even if I lose everything in this absent world I will follow you. I sing for you belive'n universe still I live…still I live… On an endless stage Still while I carry a wound to the light And I am going to make a step forward. Comforting words and thoughtless affection In the days which reject everything "Why will I carry on my shoulders the wounds of the life and where I will go?" I wondered. Cunningly twisting answer Turning around the sky Cunningly twisting answer. Impulse of spitting out savagely Turning around the sky Impulse of spitting out savagely. A voice which downpours to the next moment This night runs away Even if I lose everything in this absent world I will follow you. I sing for you belive'n universe still I live…still I live… On an endless stage Still while I carry a wound to the light And I am going to make a step forward.

Too many great band not enough great T-Shirts. Thanks
  12. I don't know much about the scene there or if the music industry makes it possible for a strong rock scene to develop there but it sure would be interesting. Do you think there could be a big visual kei or other similar waves developing in China? Or is it already starting? How interested would you be if a true visual kei scene started to develop over there? Would you be any more or less interested?
  13. My general idea for this thread is for it to be a place for people (like me) who have some jrock/VK odds & ends that they want to get rid of to pass them along to others who may want them. So everyone that has some old flyers you're never going to hang up, or magazines you really don't need taking up space on your shelf; post away! If there are any 'rules' they are: 1. You can only charge shipping. 2. No posting an offer to buy something after it has been claimed. If someone posts something, they've committed to giving it away. 3. Only claim something if you want it for yourself, don't try to resell something somebody gave you. (I certainly can't police this, but c'mon, don't be a jerk) Everything is spoken for... thanks for the help cleaning everybody.
  14. What points do you prioritize spending money on? Is it traveling or staying in comfort? Band merch? Or just hitting as many lives (of a certain band or during a specific time frame) as possible? Are you willing to travel as far as the band is performing (like Fukuoka or Hokkaido), or are you content with just hitting as many places around honshu or around your general vicinity? Do you have any favorite cheap travel recommendations for bigger cities? In the past I would travel/stay/eat as cheaply as possible (which meant lots of overnight buses, hostels/manga cafes, and rice balls/instant noodles), and then buy as many tour goods I wanted that I could afford. Now that I'm older, I still travel cheaply, but I tend to use the Seishun18Kippu when I can and drive everywhere else. Shinkansen is a last resort... I've never attended a live outside of honshu, so I've never flown to see a show. I like that I can get off at random stations with the Seishun18Kippu, explore and do a little sightseeing, and then get back on the train and go the rest of the way. Now I only buy tour goods I can use (or of a certain member) and then trade with other girls on Twitter for randoms (cheki/trading cards/stickers/rubber bracelets/etc.) Since I'm getting older and going to lives takes a lot more out of me, I tend to stay at a business hotel within walking distance to the live house (I hate having lots of stuff to carry at lives, worrying about getting a locker, and commuting before/after). What about you guys? Also any tips you'd give newbies possibly going on their first live tour? I guess one of my tips is that you can usually get much cheaper deals on business hotel singles if you book 40-70 days before, when the tour is first announced. Then if you end up deciding not to go or can't get a ticket, just cancel your reservation within the cancelation time frame, since at least 95% of hotels don't require you to pay upfront. That way you're covered no matter what you do. Tickets can usually be gotten last minute, but with hotels it can be much more difficult/way more expensive, especially in places like Osaka where there are fewer hotels compared to other larger cities.
  15. As there aren't translations of this great song, I decided to do that as my first whole song translation! I tell you that my Japanese is quite basic and I tried to do an understandable translation, so you are free to comment anything about it! Kanji: 耳鳴りが止まない 「頭が割れそうになる」 このvisionだけを見せるなら 「いっそ殺して」 for you そっと呟いた ここには何も残らない 噎び泣いた後 景色は闇に消えていく 幾つ夜を超えればいい? 消せぬ痛みを帰す場所が無い 絶望の雨が「君」を押し潰した きっと… この夜には救えない 独吟すれば少しは紛れると思った 悲しみは消えなくて 飲み込まれる この悲愴に 唯 唯 僕は見ているだけ 独裁の雨が「君」を縛り付けても 優しい記憶は消さないで 絶望の雨が 「君」を切り裂いた 今も… 打ち拉がれるようにそっと崩れてく 切望した未来 殺した感情 もう要らない 消えかけた僕には見えないから 絶命寸前の「君」に何ができる 僕には触れられもしないから Romaji: miminari ga yamanai "atama ga waresou ni naru" kono vision dake o miseru nara "isso koroshite yo" for you sotto tsubuyaita koko ni wa nanimo nokoranai musebinaita ato keshiki wa yami ni kieteyuku ikutsu yoru o koereba ii? kesenu itami o kaesu basho ga nai zetsubou no ame ga "kimi" o oshitsubushita kitto... kono yoru ni wa sukuenai dokugin sureba sukoshi wa magireru to omotta kanashimi wa sou kienakute nomikomareru kono hisou ni tada tada boku wa miteiru dake dokusai no ame ga "kimi" o shibaritsukete mo yasashii kioku wa kesanai de zetsubou no ame ga "kimi" o kirisaita ima mo... uchihishigareru you ni sotto kuzureteku setsubou shita mirai koroshita kanjou mou iranai kiekaketa boku ni wa mienai kara zetsumei sunzen no "kimi" ni nani ga dekiru boku ni wa furerare mo shinai kara. Translation: "The rain of despair falling on you" The buzzing doesn't stop "My head will crack" If this vision showed me only this "Kill me rather" For you Softly muttered Nothing remains here. After I cried The scenery vanished in the dark How many nights I should go over? There isn't a place where to return an indelible pain. The rain of despair has crushed "you" Surely... I can't save this night If, singing by myself for a while, I thought of being lost The sadness won't disappear Swallowed In this pain Absolutely I am only looking for it Even if the rain of despotism has tied down "you" Don't erase the gentle memory The rain of despair has torn "you" Even now... It softly crumbles as it has been struck A longing future Killed emotions I don't need them again Because I can't see it fading from me What you can do before your death Because I won't be touched. Kanji/Romaji from Jpopasia Translation: my work, so credit me before posting elsewhere!

  17. I know peffy did romaji for this song, but I don't remember if anyone translated it into English. Well, here's my attempt either way. My Japanese is still pretty garbage, so feel free to let me know if I've botched something. 他人の不幸は蜜の味 / Other Peoples’ Misfortune Tastes of Honey Music and Lyrics: NOAH Other peoples’ misfortune tastes of honey… “Where are you, who are you with, and what are you doing? You’re nothing but a liar!" La la la la “Am I with a woman? So what if I am? I’m not bad!” La la la la “What do I call a woman as stupid as you?”* “Mitsu”** “It’s pitiful that just a quick comment can patch things up…” “Other peoples’ misfortune tastes of honey…” Are you looking at someone like me and laughing? I’ll fall until I’ve completely fallen apart, so Hurry and degrade me “I’m your sweet taste of honey” You’ll use someone like me and throw me away But…that’s fine with me I just want to be by your side… It’s stupid, isn’t it… “Don’t be distant? Don’t leave me? Don’t leave me alone?” La la la la “Even though I’m ugly! Come close to me! Spend some money!” La la la la “When the money runs out, so does the connection – do you know that that’s the type of relationship that suits you best?” “Mitsu”* “To make me happy, give me your life…” “Other peoples’ misfortune tastes of honey…” Are you looking at someone like me and laughing? I’ll fall until I’ve completely fallen apart, so Hurry and degrade me “I’m your sweet taste of honey” You’ll use someone like me and throw me away But…that’s fine with me I just want to be by your side… It’s stupid, isn’t it… “What does sorrow taste like?” I’ll slurp it all up for you So I can be happy, Offer up your life “Other peoples’ misfortune tastes of honey…” Are you looking at someone like me and laughing? I’ll fall until I’ve completely fallen apart, so Hurry and degrade me “I’m your sweet taste of honey” You’ll use someone like me and throw me away But…that’s fine with me I just want to be by your side… It’s stupid, isn’t it… Notes: *I feel like I'm reading this wrong **I've used "mitsu" at certain parts instead of "honey", since the song is very blatantly referencing the “mitsu” phenomenon where women will pay for attention from band members 他人の不幸は蜜の味 / Tanin no fukou wa mitsu no aji Tanin no fukou wa mitsu no aji… Tanin no fukou wa mitsu no aji… Tanin no fukou wa mitsu no aji… Tanin no fukou wa mitsu no aji… “Doko de dare to nani shiteru no?

  18. This topic is for people who have love & passion for Melokei (Symphonic/Melodic J-Rock Visual Kei) Certain categories that covers this are: Symphonic, Melodic, Fantasy, Dramatic, Orchestral, Emotional ect... Please refrain from anything other then this style of music.
  19. So here it is! Versailles's first proper release since their hiatus in 2012! I'd really like to hear what you guys thought about it so I'm starting a review thread of my own. 1: La Musique I'd say probably one of the more solid tracks on the album. I really like the verses and solid piano break near the middle. 8/10 2: Shadows Fang Sounds pretty standard for them. It doesn't really blow my mind. 7/10 3: Inheritance I like the neat little transition from bass, guitar, and vocals before returning to the chorus again. 7.5/10 4: A Day Without You I like the rocking guitars at the beginning. It almost reminds me a little bit of The Revenant Choir. This song is starting to grow on me. Also has a pretty good chorus. 8/10 5: Lineage After hearing the previews I honestly thought I was going to hate this song. Funny because I actually think it's one of the best songs on the album after hearing it in full. The symphonic sounding intro that repeats throughout the song is very good. I honestly wouldn't hesitate to call this one of their best songs if it wasn't for the weird chorus which sounds kinda out of place imo. 8/10 6: Marionette. You're responsible for this one aren't you kamijo? >.> hmmm.. ok 8.5/10 ~Overall Thoughts~ A decent return for them but I wouldn't consider it among their best. Definitely inferior in comparison to their other mini-album lyrical sympathy but it's not that bad.
  20. 麗麗-reirei - have opened their youtube channel since today. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCcwZtKMKoqDFQJ66dw1RZ5w
  21. These are in my opinion two of the best new visual kei bands going right now and I've been considering pitting them against each other for awhile now. So after discovering that JILUKA are also from Tokyo (accodring to @Duwang) I finally decided to do it. So both of these bands formed in Tokyo both formed in 2013 and both have a very heavy and electronic sound. Both often employ growls, screams, and in Fixer's case pig squeals as well. Both bands have also used clean singing and more melodic songs in nature as well and tend to combine elements of both within most of their songs. Both bands also tend to use techniques often seen in metalcore such as breakdowns featuring guitar solo's and harsh vocals: including the ones mentioned above. So after that kind of detailed introduction lol the only question remaining is who is better or rather who does it better I guess since they basically have the same sounds. JILUKA FIXER FIGHT!
  22. DIAURA was formed in 2010 by Vocalist Yo-ka and guitarist Kei (both former Valluna members). Their PVs/MVs and songs have become gradually darker since their first releases. They are the main band of the record label Ains. Vocals: Yo-ka Guitar: Kei (佳衣) Bass: Shoya (翔也) (since 2011) Drums: Tatsuya (達也) (since 2013) Official Website Their latest Release is "月光" from August 3, 2016 and they have an upcoming Album "My Resistance" issued for November 2016. Some of their songs: What do you think about them? And what are your favourite songs/albums?
  23. Was driving around listening to Cassis getting excited for Gazette's NYC show in a couple weekends.... thought I'd record some thoughts. Let me know what you think of this (old) Gazette single! (shoutout to Jrocknyc shoutboxer Ken who made a few videos like this about old school Nagoya Kei that were fun... I couldn't find any of them anymore though.)
  24. Scarlet Horizon (metalcore/deathcore visual kei band from China)'s vocalist ZERO will depart the band due to undisclosed reasons. They are currently searching for a new vocalist.
  25. Does anybody know a website/websites for buying Tanbi Kei clothing (Versailles-style)? I've seen some sites but they don't sell male clothing (the Versailels prince-like/fantasy style). Also, I can't even really find female Tanbi Kei clothes. It's mostly just classical/gothic lolita, which isn't exactly what I want. Do you guys know some websites for Tanbi Kei clothes (Versailles' style)?
