When everything turns to nothing, I'll still be there for you.
Preliminary farewells to a demonic angel 
12th-Nov-2010 09:23 pm


To hear that Kagrra, will stop their activity and disband, is something utterly deplorable. They are one of the most unique bands there ever will be under the Visual系 sky. I have never heard the like, and I am sure there is never going to be anything "the like". Even though they have been around for so long, it does feel like only an instant, and one too ephemeral by far.

Their lives are a thing of beauty.
Wrapping around the open mind and heart.
Their songs, such different worlds.

When I told 一志 that his voice can touch my soul, I was not exaggerating. Live, he is inhuman. A thing of such unfathomable beauty, it might rend you asunder for the night. A beauty primarily not to behold, but to feel, really feel.

That the world of music should lose something so precious... it is vexing.

I am truly sorry for everyone to whom Kagrra, means the world.
I truly am.

It is also utterly regrettable they should only have a Japan-wide tour for their last concerts.
That is sad.
Really sad.

I, too, have been waiting for them to return, awaiting the day with light in my heart, alas, it seems to be a day to never come. This, too, is sad.

Yet I am grateful beyond words that I had the chance to see them live.
Waking me up. Making my soul cry from bliss.
Even more than once.

Their music will forever stay a part of my life, in one way or the other. I am sure of this.

I appreciate what they have given the world so far, and am awaiting their last work with a strange sort of sad-tinged excitement, 'knowing' it will be the last.

I wish I could reach them once again with what I feel.
Directly, face to face, eye in eye, but alas.
It seems I will only be able to send them my feelings.
Once the day comes.

Fare thee well, beauties, ingenious minds, crystal voices.
And never be gone, music.

I was so sad to see that announcement... they truly are one of the best bands in the visual kei scene, and their music is absolutely beautiful--definitely unique compared to most of what gets put out there. It's just so unbelievable to think that come march, they won't be together anymore... I can't imagine what brought on such a decision. :(

It definitely is... and... I don't know. We can only speculate over the why... Maybe they really wanted to stop with music, maybe they thought they're "old enough" now, or "too old", or maybe some of them had other things to do... marriage, who knows. They never, ever, appeared to me as a band who might part out of 'musical differences', never. *shakes head* Such a loss.

As you know I never were into them even though there's something fascinating about them.
However, when I read about it I was endlessly shocked because I never have thought this could happen (even though everything's possible, especially in the VK scene).

I'm so sorry for everyone who loves them in one way or the other and first thought of two people.... a friend of mine from here and you.

Mmh yeah I know. I think one either loves them, or isn't into them at all... they're pretty 'borderline' in some aspects. Or "special" as others might say, fits in various aspects, that, too.
It is strange, for them... for they were such... I don't know. A unit.

Mmh... Rani loves them, right? Or used to anyway... Or Anna.

Yeah, I can imagine that it's strange.
I wished this wouldn't happen but one never knows what this might be good for. As long as they are happy with that decision it might be okay. Know what I mean?

13th-Nov-2010 12:28 pm (UTC)
Yeah I do. Maybe they've already been 'discussing' that in a while. Ten years and all, time for letting go? Or something along those lines.

Mmh. Found it interesting you immediately thought of me, too... as ~she~ really seems to be a huge fan, one that also seems to break upon such news... I just got to be thrown into them at a late stage. ._.

Aaaawww ...
I'm sorry for this, even though I never was so much into Kagrra.
It's always sad if a band goes separate ways, but you never know what will come next. Look at angelic Satsuki ...
13th-Nov-2010 12:29 pm (UTC)
As much as Satsuki isn't Rentrer en Soi, even if Isshi would go Solo, it wouldn't be Kagrra, ... Ne.

I was trying to lie myself all along that this is not true,yet reading your beautiful farewell,it hit me hard.

I loved Kagrra,,I will still love them even if they are no more,if only I could see them at a live,since that was my wish always,but who knows,looking at the future it seems so unlikely...I will love on with a hope that one day they will revive,and I will be there to witness that.

Hmm, one day or the other the truth would hit you, as much is sure. It always does. Lying isn't very... helpful.

Well, they still exist, and as long as they do I won't think of them as something that were. It's still some months to go, some months with them in the world of music. Knowing that it comes to an end, the time still "left" seems extra precious. I would not want to prolong the time of them not being.

I know lying would not help anyone,its just that it seems so unreal you don't want to believe it.

"the time still "left" seems extra precious"well said,until they leave us,I will still hold to them dearly.

*nods* Till then, and beyond. Their music will never die. *smiles*
