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: http://www.asianjunkie.com/2019/01/08/ngt48s-yamaguchi-maho-assaulted-by-2-men-fellow-group-members-allegedly-provided-them-info-told-them-to-visit-her-house/
had to apologize to her „fans“ for daring to speak out about it.

Amen. As long as he doesn't go full thong, I'm quite happy with his newfound love for lingerie.

Just stated that it was discussed, no judgement lol
I can't believe Kisaki still has fans…

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 used to be into 48g back until… 2013-ish? Yuko was my fave and when she graduated I just stopped caring (the singles also just when reeeeally downhill after the whole KFC meme song)
I still love to lurk them for drama tho, I think new scandals like Mahohon's will come up to the surface and I hope AkiP burns once and for all lol
File: 1549054857146.gif (766.18 KB, 551x295, yikes.gif)
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.
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.>>14880
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.
File: 1549207613029.jpg (886.98 KB, 1080x1592, 20190203_102449.jpg)
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.
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.>>14884
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.

I actually get genuinely sad seeing Hyde like this. He was so pretty just 2 years ago.
File: 1550084947981.jpg (18.13 KB, 420x210, oma-ist-die-beste-dpa-jpg.jpg)
He literally looks like some cute grandma lol
I really wonder what he did wrong to end up like this.
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.
(also the clip of Yoshiki eating it on a skateboard from his insta was choice lmao)
He really thinks he's cute and quirky, like some dumb tween girl… >>14899
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.
why is Gackt so cringy? lmao
when we were all teens we probably thought he was such a cool and unique artist and now we're all grown up realizing how retarded he looks and laughing at it. i love it.
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

Is it strange to anyone else that Hyde is playing a rock festival in Jacksonville, FL?? I mean… Nobody plays Jacksonville. This is a good little tour though, finally a Japanese artist goes somewhere other than just LA/NY/TX/VA.
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.
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.
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.
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.>>14966
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.
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>>14953
Yoshiki's gf is in the OP, no? He dated a brunette for some time, even took her to events, but no marriage.>>14966
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.
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.

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?
>>14977>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
Ex-EVE (and currently CLACK inc.) Takeru has had an a white-collar type of job ever since they broke up.
He's a pretty normal guy and totally drama-free. I'm sure there are other examples, even though it's definitely not the norm.
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.
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.
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.https://pingjapan.blogspot.com/2019/03/ngt48-maho-yamaguchi-reveals-company.html>>22199
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.
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.
h!p will always be my fav anon!!!!
i was around when the aibon drama broke down and then the nono's drama!!! her marriage was so funny kekek
i wanna know the old guys scandals!!

Ah I love his acting and I was pleasantly surprised by his music, it’s nice! His voice is alright but could use some work. Nice face though
Lol at that analogy…can you tell me where you usually watch variety shows or Japanese shows in general? They're really difficult to find.

Thought this might be interesting to some people here.
This gya basically made a diary through this account about her time mitsu-ing for a vkei bandman from the band Kaitou Sentai Nusumunja (known for their parody songs).
There are some videos too of the guy spitting on her, yelling at her, call her names. (although, it's pointed away from any faces so it's basically just audio).
Most of these vkei dudes seem to be utter dickheads. The way he talks is obnoxious but I wish my Japanese was good so that I can read some of these tweets and texts.>>27085
Must be the loneliness problem Japan has.
