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.

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

No. 14873

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.

No. 14874

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.

No. 14875

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

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.

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.)

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.

No. 14886

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. 14887

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.

So many people are making up accuses for him, even try to spin it around into him being pro-choice, but I can't believe that.

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. 14890

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.

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.

No. 14911

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

No. 14952

A lot of them were married in their prime, I would say. But only my opinion and without any evidence.
I also look at Manas twitter often, since I still like the Gothic Lolita style (can´t help it…), and at least he´s just doing in what he is good in. Even though I sometimes wonder about the whole MMM-partys, with dining and so on. But the few fans left are pretty loyal, I guess.

No. 14953

I know there were rumors in the last thread about Yoshiki being married to his Russian sugar baby, but all I ever saw myself were a bunch of Chinese screenshots of her Instagram account with the name redacted and stills of him texting in Russian while on some TV show from years ago. I doubt he would marry a random Russian instamodel almost 30 years younger than him without showing her off for the arm candy factor. I also don't see a random Russian instamodel marrying one of the most famous Japanese men alive and keeping it to herself. I do believe he probably still has her as a thirsty Russian sugar baby, 1000%. Aside from that, I remember something about him almost getting married like twice. I think he's closet bi, tbqh.

No. 14954

I'm interested, but as a Jacksonville resident who has been to Met Park, fuck paying Rockville prices just to see Hyde in a crowd of pretentious, sweaty classic rock fans and bandsloots. It's basically a giant lot with no natural shade or sun protection, grass and mud (usually), the security is super anal about bags and bottles too so they won't let you bring liquids ($3-5 bottles at the park ofc) and they search your bags. On top of that, it's underneath a giant fucking overpass by the waterfront. I went there once for World of Nations and decided not to go back, of all the places to hold good shows in this city and they choose the shittiest one all because they can capitalize on the heat and humidity while you're trapped in a gated lot in the sun with a couple hundred other sweaty people trekking through the mud. Not worth it for just Hyde, even if I still was that much of a weeaboo.

No. 14962

Several years back, Miku wrote in a short entry about he met up with Bou and he mentioned that Bou was married, had children and was doing well. Teruki also wrote about meeting up with Bou before so it seems like they were all on good terms but he no longer wanted the attention ir lifestyle.

No. 14966

Probably, the majority of Dir are either married or were married (Die, Kaoru, Kyo) plus Toshiya is serious with some tv presenter. Shinya remains a mystery.

No. 14975

I think Bou left because he was sick of being the girliest band member. When I brought my Cure magazines to school to look at the pics, my normie classmates would comment stuff like "she's cute, I'd bang her. You into chicks, anon?" when they saw me oogling pics of An Cafe and LM.C and the like. Bou was always styled like a girl.

I read a post on Tanuki translations that was a list of all the Jrockers that were posted being seen going to/at kyabas and it said "every member but Shinya" which gave me a laugh. I also read one that said he was into ageplay which I could see with all the Cheburashka shit. Shinya is the weirdest DEG member.

No. 14977

I can't. He probably works some shitty retail jop. Guys who were in vk bands can't get normal jobs, because of their past and because most of them probably aren't very intelligent or simply "normal" enough to begin with.
The only exception is Penicillin's Gisho. He even works as a higher up or owner of some business that not only pays well, but also allows him to occasionally still play gigs, so he really lucked out.
I also can't imagine that Bou was forced to have this girly image, it probably was something he himself came up with when they started out.

There were rumors on tanuki saying that Mana is married, but it's honestly so difficult to imagine lol

Yoshiki's gf is in the OP, no? He dated a brunette for some time, even took her to events, but no marriage.

Die is likely married (but said to be promiscuous), there are even pictures of her, but Kyo isn't - unless his wife is a complete doormat who allows him to play around with young women.
When pictures of Toshiya and that announcer surfaced they said they're only "friends"…lol
Girls on tanuki claim that Shinya is a complete freak and the longer you think about it, the more it seems that his shy personality really might be a facade.

Buck-Tick members are all married, minus Yuta who's allegedly a player and Sakurai is rumored to be divorced again.
I think the only ones who are officially married are Sugizo, Hyde and Miyavi.

Somebody in the kpop thread said that the scandals in the japanese music scene are much more extreme than korean ones, because the latter always try to lay low, but at least in the rock scene most japanese artists seem to be much more secretive than their korean counterparts imo.

No. 14979

What do you mean by MMM parties? I think nothing happens there really haha I was reading a girl’s blog and she said Mana is always his usual self. although he unexpectedly hugged her many times and even smiled, I think it’s maybe because he had seen her many times at events so he recognized her.

I think Mana is a very eccentric man lol
And since you mentioned his twitter, I was shocked at how good he looks even after all those years! He’s almost 50 years old and haven’t changed much.

No. 14980

I also don’t think Mana’s married but who knows. I remember I read a report some months ago of a girl from my country and she said that besides two translators, there was a random japanese guy sitting next to Mana’s empty chair at one event. He was 40+ years old (he had long hair and was nicely dressed) and she jokingly said she thought it was his boyfriend lol

No. 15002

>Yoshiki's gf is in the OP, no?

I think so, but it's so hard to tell in that pic. He's supposedly been dating the blonde Russian SB since like 2014ish though. All his relationships with white models seem to last a whille before he cycles back down into the lower 20s.

Supposedly Mana is married to Yukie Itoh, a producer for Midi:Nette. He said that they used to date pre-Malice Mizer era but have just been very close friends since then, and that their relationship transcends that of marriage, if I remember correctly. I don't know if he was just saying that so that fangirls don't come for him or if he really is just close friends/partners with her, or if they're even still together. My friend who goes to lots of MdM lives says she always sees her there though, so they're probably still at least friends.

We've had some stage48 nostalgia in these threads, did anyone else prefer Hello! Project groups? They were always my favourites when I was in my 13 year old weeb fantasy of wanting to be a idol. The pedo bait stuff usually seemed a bit less obvious than AKB so when I was a young teen it didn't bother me as much, even though I find it weird looking back now just how young some of the idols were. I preferred their system of multiple acts with overlapping units, Buono! were definitely one of the best they had. The dances were more fun to badly do in front of a mirror, and something made it seem like it was easier to become a H!P idol, even when there's so many 48 girls now.

At the same time, Hello! Project, especially Morning Musume, always had way better scandals than just dating old men. This isn't very up to date but it makes me wish I'd properly kept up with all the drama at the time before it got harder to find, they make me think more of Johnny's groups where you really need to try hard to get involved to hear all the news and rumours. The "ugly Korean eyes" Morning Musume post wasn't until 2010. I actually think Produce48 would've worked better with H!P but there's a few reasons why that wouldn't happen, "Korean eyes" just being one of them. Anybody remember some good H!P milk?

I was talking specifically about vk guys who are still in bands. Of course if they drop their vk personas completely they may be able find a normal job no problem, but people managing both is a bit of a rare case.

However, >>14977 anon wasn't wrong to say that ex-vk dudes may still have a hard time going back into society 'cause some of them are outcasts with no education and no professional experience besides playing in a band. But it's not always the case. Some dudes are just normal and have a normal life outside the band (talking about indiefags mostly, not those with a certain degree of fame)

Gackt's doing a few things lately, the newest one being writing the lyrics for a BoA single, is he officially finished with weird cryptocurrency business decisions and just sticking with music and TV again? I haven't heard about any reviews for the movie he was in, but I get the feeling he's attempting to have a notable year for his 20th solo year. He's never been gone for long enough to call it a comeback, but he definitely has periods of just completely phoning it in. I'd like to know if he still has real singing and writing skills like he did at one point, or if he's just lost it and just has a massive ego now. His talent downfall isn't as severe as Ayumi Hamasaki's but she's going deaf, what's his excuse? He's been an entertaining mess for a long, long time but I'd prefer it if he could still be fun to laugh at but also put out some decent content.

He's either buying instagram followers or is getting more interest lately, though. He's gained over 100k followers in about 6 weeks.

I wanna know why there's almost nothing lulzy on Atsushi except for what that one anon said in the last thread about the scandal with his stylist and that jav actress. You would think with all the women he's fugged that one of them would spill something more. He must be really good at sweet talking them.

No. 22241

The girl from NGT48 who was assaulted tweeted (what everybody already knew) that she really was forced to apologize by her management. Hopefully something will be done now, her tweets have nearly 200k likes and everybody, besides some edgelord pigs, are on her side.

All these girls who reveal stuff about bandmen on tanuki usually have already broken up with them or don't care if they find out. On the other hand the ladies he's with probably want to stay, since afterall he's a pretty big fish.
But the biggest reason simply is, that at the height of their career the internet and therefore tanuki didn't exist yet, so his flings had no possibility to share their experiences. And nowadays he's said to only go after older women - too old to still gossip and brag about their conquests on the interent.

No. 22242

I think that's because vk gossip places like Tanuki etc. focus on more recent bands. There may have been tons of B-T gossip back in the day, but I doubt 80's bangya would venture on a vk gossip forum to spill it.
I remember reading that Sakurai doesn't really fuck younger women and that he turned many younger fans down. He must stick to women around his age.

Takemasa from Kiryu posted a video, adressing that he got married 2 years ago.
She was his fan (and mitsu), she's allegedly always first row and fans found out because she was bragging about rare items she had, so everybody got suspicious.
He pretty much said that it's not his fans business and that they should leave him alone, so the ones who did not shit on him for getting married are also angry, like "Why are you blaming us? We didn't do anything".

It's so weird seeing bandmen have YouTube…

kinda ot but it's so annoying to see the western fandom on tumblr and twitter completely sperg out with their holier-than-thou attitude. They seem to think that the Japanese fans are against the marriage because of the dislikes and bash the Japanese fans 24/7.
Honestly the bangya are just pissed because he's so passive aggressive and treated all Japanese Kiryu fans like one big hivemind even though most fans were ok with the marriage.

Lmaooo that made me roll my eyes so hard.

DDRM is one of the scummiest bands in the scene, literally no one can stand them and Yoshiatsu's antics are so infamous.

Pentagon aren't angels either, pretty sure they're kusomen too as I remember seeing Minpha's supposed dick pic he sent to a tsunagari. That was pretty early on in their career, too. I don't follow Sick2 closely but I remember reading something about them too very vaguely, I'd have to check out again.

UNiTE seems relatively chill and drama-free, true, but my favorite indiefag bandoman seems to dislike Yui, and I'm pretty sure there had been some unreported drama with EVE around the time Sana joined since they had broken up like one month earlier, so.

Either way, while there are definitely some chill bands out there, but sadly they're a minority, so I wouldn't go claiming the moral high ground on them unless you dig deep enough. These days indiefag drama doesn't gets reported nearly as often as it used to, you have to look up things for yourself.

Like no, DDRM are notorious kusomen that built their whole fanbase through fucking every single girl they see. Which is why they're still not successful after churning out so many songs and albums. No one wants to touch that band with a ten foot pole.

And where the fuck have you been to miss out the Minhpa scandals? He fucked some idol, has a ton of mitsu and even sent out dickpics. I think the Japanese fans even gave him a nickname because of it? Chin-pha I think? (=Dick-pha).

No. 33996

I'm a old fan of W.

Ai was exiled for 15 years because of her underaged smoking and old man boyfriends scandals. She ruined a family because she shacked up with a man 30 years her senior as a minor. HP gave her another chance but she blew it when she got together with another old man and got caught smoking again. After she got kicked she went through a lot of ups and downs in her life, she tried to commit suicide multiple times, got into drugs and cults. She got pregnant randomly and married into an violent relationship, divorced and got pregnant again and remarried to a yaukuza member which ended terribly for her. I think her husband got arrested for fraud and other violent offenses, tried to restart her career as an idol but failed. Nozomi became a tarento and started her mission to repopulate Japan with her famous baseball player husband, throughout her career she stayed in touch with Ai and tried helping her out and because of Nozomi she was accepted back into HP after 15 damn years and was able to perform as W again with Nozomi at Hina fes 2019.

Tsuji got pregnant by some actor from ultraman and booted from her shit, and started her career as a tarento and blogger. She has a steady following of Japanese haters (mostly bitter housewives) online that comment negatively on everything she does. (“Add some fucking potatoes to your curry! She calls herself a fucking housewife?”) Nowadays she’s more known for the hate against her, and if not that, being dumb/a ditz enough to warrant the hate. Her threads on gossip forums are literally PULL-tier. Imagine the PULL Kenna threads but for a Japanese celebrity.

She actually recently had her 4th kid and shows his face without stickers or mosiacs, which always did with her first 3 on her blog. She also posts a lot on Instagram with her husband if you are interested.

No. 34020

I honestly think it's just the culture of Japan in general right now. Pretty much every girl is an idol of some sort and it takes away the need to put yourself out there in order to stand out. The meaning of idol was changed by shitty akb and all the other flagship groups. People say Morning Musume was girl next door but during the golden era they at least had some kind of charm point. Akb changed that and went the quantity over quality route by just putting any random uggo in.
I feel like now HP definitely goes for the safer choices/girls they've already trained though which is crazy considering the most popular member right now is a rando from hokkaido.

Because they totally had a voice in the direction of the music video or their songs.

I think she mentioned she got a nose job sometime ago on a tv show. She definitely looks different and it's kind of sad considering she had one of the best visuals in Morning Musume.

At the age of just 15 (she's 16 now) she already won a best upcoming actress award (despite never having acted before kek), she's the official face of Bulgari, she was in a Chanel add and currently gets ripped into by by everybody for looking like the tiny japanese kid she really is in comparison to the normal models at a Chanel show.

Ayumi Hamasaki can’t sing live for shit now though, partly not her fault because she really is losing her hearing now but also because even at her peak she had some rough performances. As much as she could do a really cool performance of the Surreal and Evolution mix she does, her newer performances (can’t find the most recent one on youtube) of it are ruined by her vocals.

Who the fuck wants to see them anymore? Why can't buck-tick come here? Atsushi needs to stop being such an obnoxious nationalist.

I go for the nostalgia factor due to being a fan for almost 15 years, it's really not bad if you mind your business, don't try to sneak pics of the staff/random Asians and avoid the worst of the crowding. Plus they play a mix of current and older songs so even if I don't fully vibe with some of their newest stuff it's fun to hear Obscure, Child Prey, Saku or The Final performed live.

I think Hyde wants to do a US tour, he seems like he's trying to get in good with bands here lately.
