Right, there was something.

I got this from tayru's. Here goes~

Comment on the entry, and you'll be given three bands so you can do the following yourself~

The GazettE

01: What got you into this fandom in the first place?
They were the first Japanese band that I got to know after Gackt (Hmm... that makes them the first, as Gackt, as the version I got to know, wasn't the one in a band...XD). What got me into them... YouTube, my looking for Jrock-related clips and PVs, hmmm, in the end the guys themselves. The trigger for me to start getting interested (and lastly, addicted) to them was Reila. After that, Cassis. And then I got DISORDER by chance, while I was in Ireland... Not really any chance to lay your fingers on actual albums. Even though it wasn't "my type music" at that time yet, I bravely listened to it... over... and over... and over... and bit by bit, slowly yet steadily, I grew to like them, and finally, love them. This is now almost three years ago.

02: Do you think you'll stay in this fandom or eventually move on?
As long as I'll love Jrock, V系, and the such, I'm pretty sure I'll stay. I love their old stuff the way it was, I love their newer things the way they have developed to, there are favourites in all Gazeperiods so far... and even if they released something that was totally 'out of the usual' (which is kind of hard, as they tend to develop their style with each album anyway) for them, abnormal, weird, utterly horrid even... I would probably still fall in love with the songs. I can try to not like a song of any favourite band, in the end I will find elements within that song that will make me love it nontheless. There have been songs I didn't like at all when I got to know them, but with time given, they grew to become favourites.

03: Favorite episodes/books/movies/etc.?
Road to Nameless Liberty. ♥ When it's about songs, my all time favourites are amongst other「千鶴」「蜷局」「D.L.N.」「未成年」「バレッタ」and「Cassis」else there's 「絲」「Ray」「Crucify Sorrow」「虚無の終わり 箱詰めの黙示」「Defective Tragedy」「Gentle Lie」「Headache Man」「待ち惚けこの公園で…」「枯歌」「十七歳」「飼亥れた春,変われぬ春」など

04: Do you participate in this fandom (fanfiction, graphics, discussions)?
Fanfictions? About Gazette?? Me?! 8D
Well, uhm yeah... (^ ^') All of those mentioned in the question. Less discussions lately... I don't mind, though. I do graphics here and there, mostly when I'm bored. Which I can't say that I am nowadays. I started on a bunch of icons a while ago, that'll have to wait.

05: Do you think that more people should get into this fandom?
Hm, actually, generally, no. Or rather, "I'm not sure how to answer this honestly and correctly". I appreciate and love, when people honestly get into the bands and their music, but as is for Gazette... there also seems to be such a huge, superficial hype around them, next to all the other types of hype and fans there are. It's not cool to say "I'm xさん's Fan with all my heart" just because that band seems to be 'en vogue' atm. It's not okay, and I think with Gazette gaining in popularity, the number of those types of fans are increasing, too. The word 家族 popped up in my head.


01: What got you into this fandom in the first place?
Oi, that's a hard one. It's good ole' youtube who's to blame, again. Kagrra, were one of those bands I found by accident one day. I don't know when I got into them in a way that I started to call myself a fan. I just had about a handful of songs by them in the beginning, and one PV - 恋綴魂. I thought their outfit and style in that PV utterly ... weird and yet greatly captivating as well, so I kept it for demonstrations of "Jrock that uses traditional Japanese instruments"... As I said, I only had about a handful of their songs. At that time I didn't have many possibilities to get more, but those I had, I loved dearly. Especially one that had a wrong tag... It was called Fallen, but hmm... I'm not sure which song it really was. I ~think~ 桜舞い散るあの丘で.

02: Do you think you'll stay in this fandom or eventually move on?
I think they're fantastic, unique in their style that I happen to grow to love so much, so I'm pretty sure I'll stay with them. (一志……)

03: Favorite episodes/books/movies/etc.?
神楽の巣 is epic xDDD Of course I made the 'mistake' of watching episodes of Kaggra, no su, and got captivated by them as persons as well, haha... Ah, that's life.
As for songs... 「雫」「うたかた」「恋綴魂」「運命の糸」「皐月」「雨情」「彩の讃歌」など

04: Do you participate in this fandom (fanfiction, graphics, discussions)?
Hmm, very little. But I do.

05: Do you think that more people should get into this fandom?
Oh yes. Kagrra, fans, I found, are all pretty... 'special'. *laughs* Kagrra, lives are definitely quite different from any other live I've ever been to. Ah, and such beauty within the music... But everyone has to find it on their own, ne~


01: What got you into this fandom in the first place?
They themselves. I remember that a friend of mine told me how much she loved them, so I got their album. At that time though I didn't even listen to the whole album, I had to skip almost every song. Fa~~r too heavy for me at that time.
So they stayed in my itunes, untouched for months... until, I think, one day they came up by random. It was 休眠〜お休み〜, and the song hit me, hard. I'd already been DEGenized at that point of time (Diru were 'fa~~r too heavy' for my taste in the beginning, too xD), and suddenly, the rest of their music didn't seem all that bad anymore. In fact, it seemed "fuckingholygraayyyllllO_______OHOWFUCKINGGREATISTHAT?" - ish. You know. Suddenly, music that I had neglected for so long, hit me really hard. Everything. The way they compose it, 勇企's voice, the guitars, drum, bass... I loved the dark atmosphere, the sinister air, the despair and brutal reality within them. ... Yeah.

02: Do you think you'll stay in this fandom or eventually move on?
They've been gone for ... there was notice about 勇企's sickness and hospitalization with no hope for an early recovery a year ago. I never stopped since then. だから.うるせーよ…うるせ…

03: Favorite episodes/books/movies/etc.?
「休眠〜おやすみ〜」「ALIVE」「空」「追憶の彼方」「Gate of Death」「桜の涙」「廻黙に照らされた夢は涙に枯れて」「Dust to Dust」

04: Do you participate in this fandom (fanfiction, graphics, discussions)?
Hmmm yeah. There was this fanfiction, ne.

05: Do you think that more people should get into this fandom?
I don't see why they shouldn't.

Yep~ thank you! ^.^
24th-May-2009 08:20 pm (UTC)

*tries to make sense of that emoji~~~* Hnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn... さぁ〜>D

It's not cool to say "I'm xさん's Fan with all my heart" just because that band seems to be 'en vogue' atm.
I wholeheartedly agree. I've seen that happen a lot, people stopping liking a certain band because they're not fashionable anymore, I mean. I think that is even disrespectful to the artists and I honestly don't see the point in behaving like that, but...
Well, I guess people nowadays worry too much about 'blending in,' unfortunately.
23rd-May-2009 10:04 pm (UTC)
Happens all the time, anywhere. "Trendwhores", I guess. It's just kind of weird to see it happening within a group that in itself is rather 'on the fringes'. Ah well. People are being a bit lose with the words 'I love', methinks.
Haven't they always done so...

Ah, and because your icon always sorta jumps at me...
Alice Nine, SID, and uhm... Tokio Hotel? XD~
24th-May-2009 09:00 am (UTC)
*looks at icon*
What does that icon have to do with Tokio Hotel? XD
But yes, I like them. Why? o.o
24th-May-2009 08:21 pm (UTC)
Lol, ばか xD That's why I chose Alice Nine.
And as I don't know much of your fandoms I checked your profile, and chose TH as well.
24th-May-2009 08:48 pm (UTC)
Oh~, I thought... Never mind. XD
But yes, those are some of my fandoms. ^___^
My favorite bands are SID and alice nine. (it's a tie, I can't choose one over the other), my favorite female artist is Utada Hikaru and my favorite male artist is Miyavi. And~ I have a LOT of other fandoms too, I'm a big supporter of NMNL, which is why I'm always listening to music and trying new music too. For instance, I've been trying out Acid Black Cherry, THE KIDDIE and Girugämesh lately, and so far I like them all a lot. ;3
24th-May-2009 09:37 pm (UTC)
*laughs* You sound a bit like me a couple of years ago. Trying out all kinds of music ... ah, I was practically fishing for Jrock *laughs*
I like Giru, too~ Even though I didn't like their new album quite as much as some previous ones. Doesn't really matter, some of my favourite songs are by them (Zero, Having betrayed is why, e.g.)
Happy further listening.
Thanks for informing me XD~
22nd-May-2009 11:17 pm (UTC)
Cause I'm curious who you pick after I already got 176BIZ, Dir en grey, Jewel, 彩冷える, FeaDior and Dear Bitch.
23rd-May-2009 10:07 pm (UTC)
MUCC, D'espairs Ray, Nightmare then.
23rd-May-2009 09:26 am (UTC)
*\^0^/ 一志 \^0^/*

I think "fans" like this can happen in every fandom, they always did and always will. As long as there are people who like/love a band because of their music... 気にしない方が良い、ね *nods*

And completely off topic - Outori-kyuuuuuuuuuun (ハァト)
ちゅ~( ̄3 ̄)ちゅ~( ̄3 ̄)ちゅ~( ̄3 ̄)
