[VRF × MJP] V-ROCK FESTIVAL '09 Fashion Show Report

'V-ROCK FESTIVAL '09' was held on October 24th and 25th at Makuhari Messe International Exhibition Halls 9-11. During the world's biggest live event [department store] Laforet Harajuku and [fashion magazine] KERA jointly held a fashion show called 'Laforet×KERA V-ROCK Collection'. In two days about 12,000 fashion and music fans enjoyed the show that took place on the S-STAGE. Although the atmosphere surrounding the stage was markedly different from the others, the fans were all equally excited. For the fashion show, artists leading the visual-kei industry lent a helping hand as well. Each artist became a model for each participating fashion brand. Fans of the musicians were treated to a rare spectacle.

Hidden away in the Hakone mountain area west of Tokyo, several leading scientist conducted secret experiments which combined mostly domestic animal and human DNA together to see if the evolutionary gene could mutate between the species and to advance stem cell research.
Their experiments didn’t last however, as a mixture of activists and queries into the moral issues these inhumane scientific studies ignited, forced the government to cease funding the research, which inevitably led to the laboratory shutting down. During the dismissals of the scientists the highly unstable chemical then transferred into the lake which contaminated the water supply with this DNA compound. This didn’t show signs of effect to the surrounding towns till several months later a woman gave birth to a girl with a full length canine tail with matching ears.
This was just the beginning of a new breed of human. As the years progressed many children began to be born with features of household animals, some more obvious than others and as the epidemic spread occasionally more exotic animal attributes would arise in the new born.

The year now is 2047, more information has come about about it was clear that the gene was dormant in some born from the chimera (a mixture of two or more species in one body) and this was fortunate for those few, as there was a growing increase in social rejection and discrimination towards the chimeras.
Now the only way for them to survive is by living in secret and hiding their true identity, otherwise the chimera’s are captured by a large underground network of hunters where they are bought and sold for entertainment purposes, or made to work in backroom clubs that catered for the members of human society that wished to indulge themselves in the company of the hybrids.

 Three seasonal surveys have been updated today!!

They are PENICILLIN, Alice Nine, and Kagrra,!
Enjoy in both English and Chinese! Click either title or the picture to read the article!

[Seasonal Survey] Autumn of XX Q&A feat. Penicillin

This time we have PENICILLIN to get them talk about autumn!
The band is known for their unique world, but how are they going to spend the season?
Their answers show us how well they get along!
(This time HAKUEI couldn't make it, but no doubt he's having a great season in this pleasant autumn!) 


[Seasonal Survey] Autumn of XX Q&A feat. Alice Nine

Every time the band appears in our Seasonal Survey of the Stars, they give us amazing remarks and illustrations.
You'll surely be surprised at their artistic quality this time as well (laugh).
What Nao drew is a popular Japanese character! And what did Hiroto draw...?


[Seasonal Survey] Autumn of XX Q&A feat. Kagrra,

In autumn when you can fully enjoy Japan, the BGM would definitely be Kagrra,!
This time our guest at SSS is Kagrra, who has a "Japanese" style as their characteristics.
They had answers that show good points of Japan...or not? (laugh)
Hope the article becomes a step to attract your interest in Japan.
And don't miss their unique illustrations!

J Rock in Reading this Friday! [21 Oct 2009|10:40am]

Heya, I hope it's ok to post this here, but please delete if it's not!

I just wanted to let the members of this community know that I will be playing a J rock set at the Face Bar in Reading this Friday (23rd Oct 09), so please feel free to come down if you fancy it! There isn't enough J rock played in UK clubs, and if this proves popular it may become a regular thing, so it'd be great to see some Jrock lovers there =D

If you require any details just pm me!

Thanks =)

 In 2009 JAPAN will set its attention to the WORLD!
We proudly present this year’s Festival of Festivals!
In October 2009 more than 50 artists will participate
in the world’s largest visual-kei festival ever…V-ROCK! 

Special Corner of V-ROCK FESTIVAL

This year, PENICILLIN is celebrating its 17th anniversary. Although the bassist GISHO separated from the band two years ago, all the other members have remained the same from when they had first formed PENICILLIN. For 2009, they released the single ‘BLACK HOLE’ in May, and now they are set to release a new single titled ‘WARP’ on September 2nd. We heard that they were very excited about their appearance in V-ROCK FESTIVAL, so we decided to visit their recording studio to talk about the new single and the live event.

Ever since forming the band, D had gradually but steadily expanded its fan base and continued reaching a wider audience. In 2007, while they had still been an indie band they performed at Hibiya Open-Air Concert Hall [max capacity 4000 people]. In May 2008 they made their long-awaited major debut. All the singles released after their debut have ranked No.10 or higher on the Oricon Singles Chart. On September 12th they will release the much anticipated 4th single ‘Tightrope’.
One day in August we heard that all the members were getting together at a studio in Tokyo to edit the music video of their new single. We decided to head for the studio to conduct an interview.

Plastic Tree [03 Nov 2007|08:46pm]

i guess i should put an announcement here too... as i'm sure some of you that were intending to go, aren't in/don't pay attention to Kurage/euro_jrock.

Anyways, as most of you will know, Plastic Tree had to cancel their gig in London due to problems with the organisation ¬_¬
this has left a lot of fans devastated.
I'm now off to Amsterdam (because i'm crazy), and i'm basically putting together a fanbook of all us Pura fans here in the UK. if you want to submit your messages please read the following post:

P.S. it's possibly too late to post things, as i need them by Wednesday 7th, but i'm still more than happy to take scans etc. they don't have to be in Japanese (actually most of the ones i've gotten aren't), and they don't have to be much, just a brief note is all i ask - even if you're not a huge fan :)

Kirito's Negative lyrics (translations and romanji) [13 Sep 2007|02:29am]

[ mood | busy ]

Romanisations and romanji for -ALL- songs on Negative are available on my website, from here for example: http://dramatic.believers.free.fr/trad/trad-gen-en.html
(or through Kirito's discography: http://dramatic.believers.free.fr/disco/kirito/disco-kiri-alb-en.html).
These English translations were done by Boo from Centigrade-j... as the Centigrade recently went offling, you may have noticed it. It is supposed to be temporary, but well... at least these translations are online now.

For those who are would be more at ease with French, and being French myself, I also did French translations: http://dramatic.believers.free.fr/trad/trad-gen-en.html
(Kirito's discography, in French: http://dramatic.believers.free.fr/disco/kirito/disco-kiri-alb-fr.html)
(These French translations were done from the Japanese versions, using the English one to make sure I got the correct meaning)

Hope you'll like these!
(-Note: Kirito once again wrote great lyrics here... as for me, I especially love Sakyuu)
