How it inspiring it is! because see grown ass men look super feminine while pulling it off looking un-strange and sometimes hot made me view the world and made me more comfortable with myself.

 

also some vocals are like idgaf ima sing

"The love and hate relationship with your mailman" omg so accurate it hurts.

 

Anyway, I wouldn't had been into VK this long if I didn't love the majority of it. The bands, the friends I've gained.. It's lovely.

It greatly amuses me to see men have to dress up and put on tons of makeup, in the way that normally only female performers have to...

(even if they have to be super photoshopped to look decent)

 

But most of all, I like how the music can be so different from typical western pop music you'd hear on the radio. I'm sooooo sooooo sick of neutered mass-market easy-on-the-ears songs with pitch perfect singers. I like flawed vocals, painful screams, dissonance.. the contrast between growls & pretty melodies that some bands do very well. I also love the.. aesthetics of the Japanese language when sung, and it's always a special treat when it's contrasted with the occasional bad Engrish line.

i love how i came into the scene for mostly shits and giggles with bands i felt were on the same level as anime rock like diaura, royz, gazette, monolith, DIV and how i "left" with bands like deadman, diru, amber gris, kagerou, emmuree, moran and lynch that could rival my western favourites.

I voted for a lot of things on the poll (seems I definitely love more than I hate haha)

 

But the best thing is that there's always a variety. There's always new songs, new bands, new looks coming out, and even if the generic neo vkei is seemingly the thing now, there are always a few hidden gems and when you find them it's like...the BEST THING EVER.

 

I've made new friends in the fandom, discovered things I thought I wouldn't even imagine liking before. I've been inspired by vkei with my style and dress...I've laughed a lot, I've cried a lot, I've gotten angry and frustrated a lot with vkei and I've only been into it for a few years :')) But I'm sure I'll be hanging on for more years to come (even if I am pretty late).
