Reasons i dont post often.. (the hard core truth)

So I decided I should share the reasons why I don’t post often . I’ve been asked a few times about this and I want to be totally honest with my few (but cherished) followers.

Honestly this is one of my many hobbies. These hobbies range from writing poetry,to reading poetry,watching anime,reading manga,drawing manga,drawing random things from my mind,writing fantasy stories (witches warlocks all that shiz). Not to mention painting,singing,studying japanese ,spanish,german,korean,and thai.

Basically I have a busy life when it comes to hobbies.wich means that sometimes other hobbies  such as blogging get pushed aside for a length of time.

That is one of the main reason i dont post often.

The second reason being lack if content or lack of  inspiration for content. I do this as a hobby. It is to be something that i love. Usually i post only when something has captured my attention,or inspired me in some way (hence the details and work put into ny posts). But I go through peirods of this kinda numb I would say feeling.

During these periods I can not get inspired nothing really grasps my attention. I feel slightly emotionless. This actually happens a lot to me and i struggle during these days to write about things i like or love cause at these moments i dont like anything.

However ,now that I’m completely done with school i have a slight amount of time on my hands that can be used gor blogging. At least when I feel good about my content. I’m not quitting. I never will, so stay tuned for more awesome content.

Misconceptions about Visual Kei

Hello guys im here today. After being part of the visual kei scene for a few years now I’ve come across many misconceptions and stereotypes that ultimately aren’t true. In this following blog I will be covering the most common ones. 

1:Visual Kei singers are gay 

Obviously you know how this one started. A pretty man in a dress can’t be straight….. 😒

Wrong!  

Obviously there are going to be gay visual kei Singers because  that’s natural. However just because a man tries to look pretty,doesn’t mean that he’s gay.  After all you shouldn’t just assume things like that. 

2: visual kei is dark

This one isn’t so wrong because bands like jilluka and dir en grey are very dark. Both the lyrics and videos are go tos if you love Gothic elements.  However with bands like Alice nine and Lm.C you get much lighter happier lyrics and video.

Lm. C’s punky heart is definitely a cheerful happy song . I’ll link the video to that in the bottom ⬇

3: visual kei can only be rock music

This one is totally wrong.  There are many vkei bands singers and songs that aren’t just rock. They have many pop music elements and techno

Visual kei artists like Kaya and gackt sing a wife variety of styles. Pop techno darkwave trance jazz and rock. 

Kayas songs hydrangea and taboo are perfect examples that I will link ⬇

4:All visual kei songs sound the same

This I’d probably the one I hate the most. None visual kei fans say that all visual kei sings sound the same and that artists rip each other off .

Obviously there are going to be similarities. This one girl pointed out to me that in The Gazette’s the invisible wall lead dinner ruki is wearing red leather gloves, and in Disreign’s within the void Yohio is wearing red leather gloves .

I hate that right when people listen to a new visual kei sing they feel the need to compare it to other songs and other band. They don’t take the time to appreciate the effort. It’s maddening. Please guys don’t be the person that does this. 

5:Visual kei singers suck at singing English

This one is more if a joke but still one that people believe.  First you have to understand that some Japanese people pronounce English words with Japanese accents, so that makes it a little hard to understand.  However there are plenty sing where the English is perfectly understood. 

Well guy I hope you enjoyed reading these strange misconceptions. I how you kerned something as well. 

Don’t assume. 

Don’t compare. 

Stay Kei

Hotarubi no mori e *spoiler alert*

To be honest this is a movie you can watch even if you know the ending The movie is so good  it wouldn’t ruin it . So I wont say don’t read this. In fact this might help not shatter your heart so much like this movie did the first time i watched it.

So Hotarubi No Mori E ( Into the forest of fireflies light) is about a little girl named Hotaru on  her way to her uncles house she gets lost in the woods and becomes tired from searching for a way out.Just when she thinks all hope is lost he appears a man in a mask  .He leads her out of the forest after telling her she can not touch him because he’ll disappear. The two spend every summer from that one on together and become best friends .But they begin to have more serious feeling for each other.

How can love between a human and a spirit survive?

Gin takes off his mask after Hotaru ask him to show his face more

This movie is amazing. Ive watched it more than eight times . Literally every time i watch i find myself sobbing.face literally pressed to the screen rewinding it and watching it all over again just so i can fangirl and cry some more. Im such a girl right ?

Things i love about this movie:

The innocence : That sounds dumb i know but really through out the movie all i can think about is both of their intentions all both of them want is to be around each to hug to hold hands. i find that so simple yet so cute ❤ ❤ .So touching!!

The evolution of hotaru: I loved watching Hotaru grow up watching as her feeling turn from childish wonder to a more mature romantic feeling .

Seeing how Hotaru and Gin Affect each other: Gin starts off mysterious never even taking off his mask but as their relationship develops gin becomes more open  he becomes happy. In the begining hotaru is lost and afraid of the forest but as her and gin spend time together there she realizes that the forest is full of beautiful things her favorite being gin

The music: The music always puts you in the feels but none like KanaKana Shigure composed and played by Makoto Yoshimori. This peice is like watching the entire movie but shortened to three minutes of cry your heart out piano and violin .

Ahh this piece… Thank you so much Makoto Yoshimori for writing beautiful music. My ears are grateful ❤

The thing about this anime is you know its not going to work out in the end .Some way some how you know these two will leave each other. You just dont expect it to be so suddenly. All Gin wanted was to hold Hotaru .All Hotaru wanted was to be held by Gin.Neither of them wanted to be apart,but they both knew that one day time would seperate them anyways .While Hotaru grew and matured Gin was exactly the same as the day they met.They were not of the same worlds and couldnt even touch each other.We all wanted some miracle granted though we didnt want this to end that way.However it was the right ending a melancholy one sad happy . God !!!! why does this movie make me so sad?

I loved how all of the spirit of the forest all warn gin to be careful yet were one hundred percent supportive of him wanting to hug Hotaru. In the end when they hug and he disappears they thank her as she sobs .They are happy that gin was happy

Here are some quotes from this movie

“It’s okay if you forget about me. A body that’s maintained by magic is very weak. If it touches a real human body, the spell will break and the body will disappear. It’s a fragile thing. How long can you-“-Gin

“Gin, I thought of you during winter. Even during autumn and spring. Gin, don’t forget about me.”-Hotaru
“Time might separate us some day. But, even still, until then, let’s stay together”-Hotaru

You see i think the reason why i felt this anime so much is that Gin didnt care anymore. He wanted to be with Hotaru forever but knew that it wasnt possible.So the next best thing would be to hug her he didnt care at what cost.When hotaru made the joke about glomping(a jump hug) him and he said do it i knew then that he was going to leave her. She knew it as well but her dream came true and so did his.

“That mask,Have it” Gin says to Hotaru on their Date

“Come here Hotaru ,i can finally hug you” Gin says to Hotaru

mask

 

After gin “dies” hotaru is left with nothing but his mask as she clutches it to her chest his soul flies around her in the form of fireflies

“I probably won’t be able to look forward to summer for a long time. My chest will hurt. My tears will be overflowing. But this warmth in my hands and these summer memories will live on in my heart.” -Hotaru

“Hotaru. Thank you. We wanted to be with Gin forever, but… Gin wanted to touch a human. He finally got to be hugged by a human.” -youkai

so yeah that was my blog on hotarubi no mori e i hope you enjoyed and didnt cry as much as i did.

Stay kei/Otaku

Ps: Thank you Yuki Midorikawa for writing an drawing such an amazing Manga ❤

D-Der konig der Dunkelheit SONG REVIEW !!!!!!! <3

YES ! im so happy to be doing a review on this AMAZING song! I love everything about this video ,except that it wasn’t longer. I actually found the band D on accident when i searched up the letter d instead of the band die/may . I did not expect to find such a great band ,and i instantly fell in love with Asagi’s voice. Its operatic and harsh he has an amazing vocal range.

Der konig der dunkelheit is a song  by the band D first released in 2011 it is sung in German and in Japanese and has a very  hardcore and medieval sort of sound . The video is like a story. Der konig der dunkelheit roughly translates to the king of darkness, However some of the German in the song is a little wrong. The song n both its original Japanese/German and translated to English has a poetic feel.

Watch the amazing video:

 

Im sorry guys this is going to be a long review this song and video is just too good to keep it short.Bear with me ill try to make this enjoyable

My synopsis of the lyrics: i feel like the reason the lyrics were sung in both japaese and german was to make it more mysterious and to reach different audience .I feel  like the lyrics are also a story .

I will leave my throne behind to go and fight
As a sign of love for my people, I will not retreat
The emperor of darkness, my own body will be my shield

Ist denn die Sonne nicht ubrig? (because the sun no longer remains?)
In exchange for a distant death
Die Mond und der Sternhimmel  (under the moon and the starry sky)
I shine out
Da sagt der Konig Ich brauche euch (the king says i need you)
Take my blood and live
Und kusse die Rose (and kiss the rose)
This is the beginning of the night of awakening

The potion of eternal life burns my throat like sand
Setting the black beasts upon me

With my kingdom crumbling before my eyes
There is just one thing I must do now
So the royal bloodline does not die out

Warnen  (warning)
No one can harm me
zielen  (aim)
There is no hesitation in my attack
Schneid (cut)
Let the blood that flows to my heart
Be a crimson rose that never loses its pride

This cooling power overwhelms me
Like a horse with wings on its back

Those who block our way
Cry out to their own shadows that they are no longer the enemy
Facing the point of my sword, they pledge

I will leave my throne behind to go and fight
As a sign of love for my people, I will not retreat
The emperor of darkness, my own body will be my shield

Der Konig der Dunkelheit  (the king  of the darkness)
That name will shake the world to its foundations
In the blink of an eye

This is the best translation i have found so  far its very poetic.

I feel like this song is the story of  a man seeking power to protect those he loves and a king who lends his power by giving away his sacred blood  therefore letting his precious bloodline live on . what better than power. The video offers something completely different.

My synopsis of the video: after watching  this video a few more times i realize its actually not so different from the story of the lyrics at all. In the beginning asagi stand up from his throne in anger tosses his cape around everything is bright there is light shining on the globe ( i see this as his world) He proceeds to stare into a Gothic vial of blood  mixes it into some foreign liquid and drinks it.its seem as though the other member of the band which i see as the people of his palace  are frozen in a state on fear they hold roses in there hands and stare off into the distance seemingly waiting for their king to save them.After Asagi (the king) drinks the blood,he begins to transform. His eyes flash red his pupil shrink. He seems to regret for a few seconds drinking the blood he throws as he throw his hands out in agony.

D_Der_Konig_der_Dunkelheit.gif

(sorry that the gif is so long i got caught u in the beauty while i made it)

he tears the curtain from his room letting the moonlight spill in showing that he is indeed the king of darkness.He falls to the ground the venom pulsating through his veins. he gets up  cuts his arm and it heals instantly. He goes back and sits on his throne again. Darkness begins to spread on the globe ( once again what i take to be his world) . For the rest of the video everything remain dark, yet not gloomy. I feel power in the darkness and in the kings eyes.

i really love the effects used in this video the way the show Asagi’s veins pulsating in his neck and the way the moon seems to shine way more brightly than it should have.

The costumes that the members wear are so intricate.  I dont think we could expect any less  from D .The scenery looks so natural i almost want to take a trip and find this castle and live there ❤ ❤

sorry that this one is so long.I had to go into detail.  Had to do a synopsis and everything. I really love this video and this song .Im so glad i happened across it o accident. It is beautiful. It is powerful. It is everything i love in a song .

Remember guys, fight for your throne ,protect your people, let your power be your shield!!! ❤

Stay kei

ps: see what i did there

Aicle Starmine Pv :

 

So Cute !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i  swear my heart cant take this much cuteness .i love Emiru’s voice in this song  song. This acutally happens to be my favorite (among other amazing songs) by Aicle. i actually didnt see the video until about a year after i heard the song. i watched the video on youtube and fangirled.

Lyrics:

“[… Star mine… ]
Chiisana toro kara hikomu shian datta boku wa, chotto wa otona ni natte
Taisetsu na mono ya dai kirai na mono wo
Sukoshii manantanda

Naze okumo no hoshi no naka
Meguri aimashita
Zetsumyou na timing de kimi ga awarete kureta yo ne

Daisuki na hito wo omotte mitemo
Umaku mienai ne madoro koshii ne
Sentimental hoshi furu yoru yo
Kanawanu omoi wo uketomete…

Ureshikute nari tari kanashikute warau nante
Jinsei tte nandaka taihen
Kurikaesu hibi ya kaga konda mono mo, boku wa suiki na noni…

Baketsuni mizu wo hirete uchi ageru star mine
Zekkou no rotesshonde ni tari no koto wo terashite.

Ari yurete kotoba narabete mitemo
Dore ga iika nante zenzen wakaranai
Hana hi no ato wa sabishiku naru kara
Ima wa sono tedake…

Ima sara kirei goto nanka, kikitakunai yo
Ori hime to hiko hoshi nante zenzen… Romantic janai

Daisuki na hito wo omotte mitemo
Umaku mienai ne mendou kusai ne
Sentimental hoshi furu yoru ni
Kanawanu omoi wo uchiagete

Semete onegai
Mada kienai de ne star mine..”

( there are actually some minor errors in this the parts that say Starmine should read suttaa-main, timing should read taimingu, sentimental should be senchimentaru, and romantic should be romannchiku) sorry guys i got this off the internet its not fully correct dont kill anyone.

Anyways let talk about this song かわいいデスね!  so cute!

BatAAR is Amazing! song review Always Die Young

So yes i know im aware that ive already done a review on BatAAr before but they really deserve this. they have made AMAZING music this year. im so proud of all their accomplishments. This is for you Patrik, Endigo,Simon and Tobias. I love you all you guys rock (hoping that they find this someday)

So on to Always die young. This song is practically my theme song. i am obsessed with every second. every guitar riff every note endigo sing every slam of tobias’s drum .

Is it normal to be this obsessed with a song…? Maybe not but who cares yolo (cringey right?)

Watch The Video:

 

Yes! Just Yes thats it this video and song is just so amazing

i think the best part is that the put so much work into patrik wrote the lyric and the music simon edits the video after its shot and their friend Petri (whom ill  talk about later) does their hair. Its no wonder eveything is so perfect

The effects in this video are mad good thus making this video Kickass

I could talk about this song all day but id think youd want to hit me so lets get started

Always die young song and video review:

The lyrics:

All this time I’ve waited
All this time I’ve lost
I know I’ll die young
Our sun sets for another day

Your misery loves company
So stay right there
Far away from me
Your blood is as thin as your facade
The future begs for answers I don’t have

NO CUTS NO GLORY
NO CUTS NO GLORY

Though there is a will
There’s just no way
Bare your satin neck

What little we have left
Won’t keep me from walking away
I’ve heard it all before
This hollow truth
What is the meaning of a life without answers?

Through all this time I’ve waited
All this time I’ve lost
I know I’ll die young
Our sun sets for another day

NO CUTS NO GLORY
This is not your story
NO CUTS, NO GLORY
So stay right there, far away from me

What little we have left
Won’t keep me from walking away
I’ve heard it all before
These hollow answers

Through all this time I’ve waited
All this time I’ve lost
I know I’ll die young
Our sun sets for another day

Think back on time we wasted
And all the time we lost
For all it’s worth we know
We’re gonna die young
Our sun sets for another day

The velvet sun sets another day

My thoughts: Dude these lyrics flow so well  cant even wrap my head around it . the lyrics just speak to you they’re powerful and just elaborate (thank you patrik for creating such poetic lyrics)

The music: the one word i would use to describe this music is Melodic even though it hardcore it still, you still could sway to it especially the chorus  . altogether this music is just fantastic i love it

The Blood: This video is so gory . I Love It !!! when patrik licks his hands ❤ lol xD its great there is not much more to say . All of them look like death i love it. Their acting was pretty damn good as well

 

So im keeping this short ( in hopes that you dont tear your hair out) Please fully support BatAAr if you like this song buy it for a dollar on itunes or google play !!

Stay kei ( or in terms of BatAAr Stay Vicious)

Wolf
