Previous Thread: >>>/ot/234968

What was discussed in the last thread:

Yoshiki (X Japan)
>is an attention whore, is still milking hide’s death and is so desperate for American recognition that his band even performed at Coachella
>has a Russian sugar baby who’s nearly 30 years younger than him
>announces monthly that the new album is 99% finished (it’s not)
>hangs out with Marilyn Manson, Poppy and Titanic

Hyde and Gackt are aging terribly (plus the latter is possibly gay) and Atsushi Sakurai thinks he no longer needs to wear pants.

Kisaki (ex. Phantasmagoria) is a literal pedophile. And of course he gets away with it, because this is glorious Nipponland we’re talking about…

Warning! Absolutely appalling details, pictures as proof.

At first I thought about making this jrock/vkei-only (because most conversations were about those), but then decided against it. Therefore you can also use this thread to rant about how horrible the idol industry is and how bad Ayumi looks nowadays.

The latest scandal:

Spoiler: She had to apologize to her „fans“ for daring to speak out about it.

X needs to disband. They're all too old and too busy trying to stay relevant to try to revive an 80's glamrock band in a country that idolizes mumblerappers, thugs and thots.

Damn, they're still around? I remember buying hella copies of that shit from Hot Topic and FYE just to look at the pictures of jrockers & pretend I could read Japanese. I thought they went under after they tried to make Cure USA, iirc their first and only issue was mostly just a bloody vampire photoshoot of Yoshiki, a horribly laid out Dir en grey concert review and then a bunch of filler.

all those supposed connections and this is still the best he can get? i guess it is american and pays money, so that's enough for him. i'm 50/50 on whether or not the x album is actually going to be released, but it will definitely lead to yoshiki milking hide more, with a briefer mention to taiji

hyde's album should probably be out though, after he released a meh collection of singles in 2018. speaking of him though, anybody catch the photos from his birthday with gackt? guests included a (not pictured) yoshiki, hyde's usual hanger on daigo, and gackt's unusual friend roland. guests did not include many other people over the age of 45, jrock sugar baby jaejoong, and seemingly no women at all. gackt's been making a big deal of his 20th solo anniversary being this year, i wonder if he's going to have his own mediocre album out this year

Roland? I can't find him…? Speaking of him, I know this isn't jrock, but this was in my youtube recommendations and immediately made me shudder… What a creep.

Hyde literally looks like a tiny grandma and Gackt, looks like Gackt… His little servant (Takumi or something) is also always with him. Shinya looks so weird too.
That whole party was probably spent talking about how great Hyde is.

And I highly doubt that Gackt will release an album, he would have mentioned it beforehand, no? All he's doing lately is being in commercials.

I can't speak nihongo but what's even the context of this? If I were those kids, I'd be creeped out with his plastic surgery ridden face up in my shit. Shouldn't he be in bed with gackt or something instead of signing children's soccer balls?

The kids touching his hair was kinda cute tho ngl.

I was really weirded out when I saw this. This nig is literally famous for having rich sugar mamas, he's obviously a terrible inspiration for the kids and shouldn't be going to children charity events and schools. It's like 12 years ago when the pussy cat dolls were all like WE WANT TO ENCOURAGE LITTLE GIRLS TO GROW UP BE STRIPPERS. Roland is like the male versiom of Vanilla, she got famous for her plastic surgeries but the difference is she never went to schools to see the kids like a celeb and shit. She's crazy but she's not far up her own ass like Roland and knows her lifestyle is not something kids should want

A lot of countries nowadays are pushing a lifestyle of glamour and sex over work and education to their youth. It's a trick to get a generation to avoid learning how to think and provide for themselves so that rich old farts can own them and their youth.

yeah it's really fucking weird. Why is a manwhore something inspirational to children?

Also, I don't even get why Gackt hangs out with him? Roland is nothing but a host who spent all his money on a new face. Why is he in the j-rock squad? At least the other guys have some kind of actual talent.

People in Japan are disgusting and simply don't care. Look at the manga artist from Rurouni kenshin when he was caught with child porn and legit admitted to having it like it wasnt a big deal. He didnt even get jail time.

Kek at that money necklace, how childish…
Ever since Roland quit being a host (which was only a couple months ago), he kind of blew up even more, is constantly on tv etc. (And for some reason japanese women do find him attractive - or at least pretend to)
Maybe he's buying himself in? And we all know that money is the only thing Gackt cares about, he hangs around with all kinds of semi-famous, rich non-musicians.

>>365717
He turns 50 this year. I really don't get it, he's so rich, yet looks worse than your average dad. You'd think he could afford all kinds of skin care treatments and only the best stylists.

Even more ironic considering all the others members of Larc aged fine and look their age while Hyde looks like a grandpa already. He at least needs to kick the bleached hair because he looks better (and younger) with brown.

There's no way Kyo is not mentally ill. All he does is write edgy shit about women and is still obsessed with abortion (cuz according to an old ass interview, his mother tried to have his aborted, but it didnt work out.)

He'll be 43 (?) soon, so he needs to move off the edgy phase already.

If you ask me, Roland is Gackt's sugar baby. There's no way that fruit loop isn't a closet case.

Also, I noticed that since the first anti-Jrock thread, Miyavi has been posting and mentioning more of his wife, as well as Yoshiki making a point to be on camera with his Russian SB. Coincidence? Not that I think any of them would lurk here, I just find it interesting after the sperging over those women in the old thread.

Agree, especially with how Japan as a country is about mental illness. I'd love to hear his thoughts on the Kisaki scandal though.

No. 366970

I'd reckon he'd love to see Kisaki cash and burn (which will never happen though), but he probably also doesn't give a fuck about the women and her daughter who were abused.

I feel like if it got enough fan attention, there would eventually be more of a scandal. Although with the way Japan and the idol industry is, unless her male fans rage about it I don't see much being done.

No. 367869

even if her male fans did rage, that's still only fans of one member, individual members are just too replaceable. it would take a level of outrage way bigger than just her fans + some sympathisers + girlschannel to have a big enough impact

that actually doesn't feel too far-fetched. Gackt 100% fucks dudes in a "no homo bro" way. Roland kinda gives me Yohio vibes so I think we've found Gackt's type kek

That would explain how roland is all over TV, Gackt could be pulling strings to make him some kind of tarento if they're fucking. Random prettyboy bisexual host suddenly starts hanging with rockers and celebs and showing up on TV for no reason? Totes not a handout.

Could this be the result of perhaps cheek fillers + botox? They look like botched cheek implants, but not quite 'plastic' enough to be actual implants, imo.

Just One More Kiss is one of their more famous songs and one of my favorites. Empty Girl, Tokyo and Oriental Love Story are really good too. Honesty I'd suggest just working your way through their albums, especially starting from the late 80s. They're all on Spotify if it helps

He really thinks he's cute and quirky, like some dumb tween girl…

Good taste, anon. I'd second simply starting from their first album and working yourself up. Sissy Boy, Romanesque and Angelic Conversation are on of my favourite songs.
For albums, especially since you seem to like older stuff, I'd say Hurry up mode, Sexual xxxxx!, Seventh Heaven and Kurutta Taiyou. Six/Nine is very different, but maybe you still give it a try, it's suprisingly nice.
I'm rather disappointed in their newest album. The second last one also wasn't too exciting.

Gackt has barely had his ego checked since the mid 90s. he couldn't have been much older than 21/22 when he joined Malice Mizer, so he was very quickly associated with one of the stronger names in visual kei history. there's all sorts of stories of him beating up various other musicians and roadies in the 90s, he leaves a well known band and has his solo career make him even more famous, he's making connections with all sorts of other celebrities far more famous than him. he's had plenty of criticism over the years for being cringy, but nowhere near enough to get through the fact that he's been having his ego stroked for about 25 years. him being (imo anyway) increasingly more unbearable over the last 10 years comes from the fact that he's had more criticism recently than he ever did before when his music was original, his singing was better, his face still looked like a face. the more articles and comments come out criticising him, the worse he's going to get

the man claimed to be a 500 year old immortal for years and was rewarded for his mysterious and unusual personality with media attention, money, and sex. i don't really think there's any chance of him getting better any time soon - not his face, not his weird instagram choices, not his occasional awful statements, and definitely not his deluded career choices

I keep seeing last minute ticket packs going on sale for Rockville and they don't even list Hyde on there. If his staff didn't post the tour pic I wouldn't believe he was actually going. Come to think of it, I doubt he will, or that it'll be any good. Usually when a popular foreign artist plays Florida it's a technical flop or gets cancelled. Wasn't X Japan shitty at Coachella because of a sound issue?
