So that's the best domesticslly selling vkei single of all time. But I wonder if we could look at worldwide sales if someone else outsold them. And I wonder what the richest vkei band ever is.

I don't think whatever little sales any VK band would have overseas impact their domestic market, like at all. Some bands are pretty big in some other Asian countries as well, but the biggest portion of the market is still in Japan.
GLAY is probably the richest. Probably up there with L'Arc and Luna Sea, but I'd bet GLAY as the actual richest
>>
>>10745197
Yeah that sounds about right. I do think that there was a time like 10 years ago where overseas sales may have mattered more, back when Dir en grey shirts were at Hot Topic and X played in LA.

He's alive, he just did an online fan event a couple days ago, and he tweeted on his own like a week ago. But he probably does have some mental retardation disease

glay is chad as fuck.
Teru is a known womanizer, and Hisashi was caught cheating on his wife multiple times.

i saw something about him possibly faking a lil bit because of some scam he was involved in i dunno

>>10747091
I feel like most vkei artists have mental illness. Not really chad material.
>>
>>10747761
believing that "Chad" is real is a mental illness. It's just a meme.
Yes, there's different kind of people in the world and some may come across as more similar to our stereotypical fictitious "Chad" character from the memes, but they might as well be mentally ill betas inside.
That said, there's a couple of VK "chads", like Misa (the baldie who used to be in bands and now runs labels) or the drummer from Golden Bomber.

Was this pic taken when BTS first formed? They look so much different now. RM looks good with blond hair.

Yes, it's from their trainee days

BTS doesn't even look VK-like. Try old school kpop boybans that actually copied VK looks, like H.O.T.

MIRAGE. This seems exciting because Kisaki's in it again!

I hope Gackt is okay. I think he's genuinely has the neurological issues as he said. It's literally amazing that he's had such an amazing singing career.
>>
why is visual kei so based? especially the indie stuff
>>
Cure is going into an indefinite hiatus (not ending publication, that's 廃刊), it's really unfortunate
>>
sooooooo new deg
>>
>>10757806
I sure hope people still like Dir en grey

How do you search for band shirts on fril and mercari without most of the search results being cd's?

OMG GLAY!! They were the first Japanese music CD I ever bought, this was around 2002-2005. I was in high school and my mom took me to Frank and Son’s and I saw the CD and got it. I fell in love. I saw them in concert ever show when they were in LA. At their last show I stood right up front on Jiro’s side of the stage, since he is my favorite, called his name all night and sang along. After the encore he came out took my had in his and gave me all this guitar picks. They are my treasure now.

Super based! Jiro is awesome.
When did they play inLA?

Visual kei is the best thing to ever happen to me. @.@
I'll be listening to Merveilles on repeat until I die!

based and mizerpilled

What do you think about the current state of GazettE and MUCC? I heard that their latest album wasn't too well in the terms of review and fan reception.
>>
Any recommendations for vkei bands with post punk - like sound?
>>
>>10782527
Old and busted. The only VK band that got better with age is Buck Tick.
>>
>>10788563
zi:kill, especially Close Dance and Desert Town albums.

Anyone going to the ACME concert tomorrow? I can’t make it but am curious
