>>10743942So 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.
>>10743942is gack alive or was he faking
>>10744786I 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
>>10745197Yeah 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.
>>10744791He'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
>>10746101glay is chad as fuck.Teru is a known womanizer, and Hisashi was caught cheating on his wife multiple times.
>>10746515> visual kei> chad
>>10747091>anyone in the 21st century>chad
>>10746092i saw something about him possibly faking a lil bit because of some scam he was involved in i dunno
>>10747091I feel like most vkei artists have mental illness. Not really chad material.
>>10747761believing 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.
>>10748434what are you even talking about? vk fans are so weird
>>10748711Learn reading comprehension.
>>10743942Was this pic taken when BTS first formed? They look so much different now. RM looks good with blond hair.
>>10743942>Visual Kei>thread is 14 days old>only two "visuals" in threadMan fuck you guys
>>10748838Yes, it's from their trainee days
>>10748838BTS doesn't even look VK-like. Try old school kpop boybans that actually copied VK looks, like H.O.T.
>>10751517don't forget tvxq
>>10743942https://vk.gy/blog/our-interview-with-mirage-about-their-new-start/MIRAGE. This seems exciting because Kisaki's in it again!
>>10744791>>10746092>>10747759I 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
>>10757806I sure hope people still like Dir en grey
>>10763003I haven't checked out their newer stuff. Their stuff up to Withering to Death still has me by its hands
>>10763110Here's reccomedations for their new stuff:Oborohttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IGdFAQz35VcUtafumihttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GUbKFrPkxRIThe World of Mercyhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lj8Ls01Zmo8Ranunculushttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aeN6LqawRB4Akahttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TCzGQsrlx-4
How do you search for band shirts on fril and mercari without most of the search results being cd's?
>>10766277Band name + Tシャツ
>>10743942OMG 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.
>>10767171Super based! Jiro is awesome.When did they play inLA?
thoughts on the new mucc?
Visual kei is the best thing to ever happen to me. @.@I'll be listening to Merveilles on repeat until I die!
>>10777880based 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?
>>10782527Old and busted. The only VK band that got better with age is Buck Tick.
>>10788563zi:kill, especially Close Dance and Desert Town albums.
Anyone going to the ACME concert tomorrow? I can’t make it but am curious
