    Hello guys! Yes the Jrock scenarios are back after a two year hiatus! Just a quick preface for those who are new here and haven't read any of my Jrock scenarios- These in no way are meant to defame or maliciously make fun of any Jrockers here it is purely for fun and I love the guys (and girls) featured in here as much as you my dear reader do so if you want to get mad about this please keep it to yourself because it's your choice to get offended
    Anyways on with the show!

    Ruki: Reita! Have you seen my sparkly pink pen?
    Reita: You mean the one you wrote all over Uruha's wall with?
    Ruki: Yeah that one!
    Reita: I think you left it there
    Ruki: Oh... you think he's still mad about that?
    Reita: Probably
    Ruki: Ah.... You wanna go get it for me Reita sweetheart?
    Reita: No and don't call me sweetheart!
    Ruki: Yeah, whatever cupcake... well I'm not going alone you're coming with me *grabs Reita by the arm and drags him out the door*
    *they arrive at Uruha's place*
    Ruki: *pauses before knocking on the door* Wait Reita... do you hear that sound? I think that's...
    Reita: *singing* Oh girls just wanna have fu-un!... ahem no what are you talking about?
    Ruki: I'm just going to pretend I didn't hear that... *knocks on the door*
    Uruha: *Opens the door* Hey Saki- oh it's you.... what do you want?
    Ruki: *can clearly hear Girls Just Want to Have Fun playing from Uruha's place* I don't know what to ask about first now.... What is that noise coming out of your place?
    Uruha: Oh you know I was just going to be having a party with a couple friends
    Ruki: *gasps* And you didn't invite me!?
    Uruha: Well I know how you are with your musical tastes and-
    Ruki: You listen to girly music? You're just a girl who wants to have fun?
    Reita: Hey it's a good- *Ruki glares at him* I mean a terrible terrible song
    Uruha: This is precisely why I didn't invite you *is about to close the door but Ruki stops him*
    Ruki: WAIT! The real reason I came here is to get my sparkly pink pen I want to write some songs! Can you let me in?
    Uruha: Fine as long as you don't say anything
    Ruki: My lips are sealed
    *Ruki and Reita enter there are already some guests in the room*
    Ryoga: Hey Uruha I thought you didn't invite Ruki
    Uruha: He just came for his pen and he's going to leave
    Ruki: Oh god Ryoga you're here too!? I thought you were sane!
    Ryoga: What's that supposed to mean?
    *song changes to Bootylicious*
    Yomi: *jumping up* THIS IS MY STRIPPING SONG! *Rips off clothes and starts running around*
    Ruki: Oh god what the hell!?
    Yomi: Ruki's here! Now the party can really begin! *starts twerking on Ruki*
    Ruki: No! Stop! Reita help me! This midgit is raping me!
    Reita: Calm down Ruki! Besides this is funny
    Ruki: You traitor!
    Sakito: Sorry I'm late Uruha! Hey what's happening to Ruki?
    Ruki: I feel so violated! In more way than one!
    Sakito: What do you mean?
    Ruki: I mean you all have shitty taste in music! Like what the hell is this shit!?
    Omi: Hey I happen to like this music!
    Miko: Really? That's so cute! *hugs Omi*
    Omi: Wait no! I don't like this! Uruha you didn't tell me you invited her! Dammit!
    Miko: Oh Naoto's here too! I didn't know you liked this kind of music!
    Naoto: If you tell anyone I will slowly cute you open and let your guts spill out of you and you bleed out slowly as I carve out your eyeballs
    Ruki: Huh... she says this with a completely straight face as Bootylicious is playing... kinda takes away from the threatening factor
    Naoto: Same goes for you punk!
    Ruki: HEY Do you know who I am!? I'm Ruki from the GazettE! I am your god!
    Reita: Oh no he's on another one of his rants...
    Naoto: *throws a knife that just barely misses Ruki's face*
    Ruki: Eep! *hides behind Reita* Did you see that pumpkin? She almost ruined my beautiful face!
    Uruha: I guess you could say she almost carved you like a pumpkin
    Ruki: Shut up Uruha you stupid duck! I was almost killed! Me! Your god!
    Reita: This is why you're not allowed to watch Death Note... it messes with your god complex...
    Ruki: Yeah well I'm being traumatized with near death experiences with the unholy music of demons! *Ruki's cell phone starts ringing and the song is Love Game by Lady Gaga*
    Ryoga: OH MY GOD! I LOVE LADY GAGA! SHE'S MY QUEEN! YAAAAAS BITCH!
    Uruha: *snickering* You gonna answer that?
    Ruki: Erm... I only have this because I want to ride Reita's disco stick!
    Reita: Stop lying you listen to her all the time
    Ruki: N-no I-I-I-
    Miko: Awh how cute!
    Reita: You love this trashy pop music I saw your toe tapping when you thought no one was looking
    Ruki: But-but-but
    Yomi: BUTTS! *slaps Hitsugi's butt*
    Hitsugi: Ow!
    Ruki: I'm Ruki from the GazettE! I only listen to bad ass rock music! *crosses arms and pouts* Someone hacked my phone!
    Yuuki: *walks up to Ruki and puts his arm around him* Come on Ruki embrace your inner fabulous side
    Ruki: Well I do ooze fabulousness....
    Yuuki: Come on may I have this dance? Let loose live a little
    Ruki: ...Okay... *grabs Yuuki's hand*
    Uruha: *nudging Reita* Hey I think you just got your man stolen by another gentleman caller
    Reita: No! Not at this ball!... wait what am I saying? I don't care... *grabs a beer and sits down*

    Well there you have it~ My first Jrock scenario in 2 years! I do hope you guys enjoyed it! I don't know if it's as good as my other ones~ But I'd love to hear you guys' feedback on this! Also I have no idea why I gave Ruki a god complex in this one :undecided:
    Anyways until next time... Bye guys!

    • 3rd JPA Anniversary!

      Happy Valentine's Day everyone! Is everybody having a lovey dovey ooey gooey day? No? Me neither! Yay! You know what? I am now going to reinstate this day as Night Day! And what do we do on Night Day you ask? We celebrate the day where the great Night-sama decided to grace JPA with his presence! :cool:

      Happy Valentine's Day everyone! Is everybody having a lovey dovey ooey gooey day? No? Me neither! Yay! You know what? I am now going to reinstate this day as Night Day! And what do we do on Night Day you ask? We celebrate the day where the great Night-sama decided to grace JPA with his presence! :cool:
      But seriously guys today is the day that marks my third year on JPA! And now it's time for me to get all sentimental on y'all as per usual with these anniversary journals~ Was I sentimental last year? I don't remember actually >.<
      Anyways this site means a lot to me! I've met some of the greatest friends I could ever imagine on here! Seriously everyone here is super cool and amazing and has been so much nicer to me than I probably even deserve and for that I am truly grateful! Especially if you can put up with my weirdness and my obsession with Miko~ Seriously I don't know how you guys do it because I would probably hate me! I'd be all like "Ew that guy's so gross" *bonus points if you read that in a valley girl voice*
      Ruki: I know he's so gross right? Those pants with that top? No! Just no! And where's the glitter?
      God dammit Ruki! Who let you in here?
      Ruki: Well it's your three year anniversary and you've neglected writing about me and other Jrockers! I mean come on! You know the people want to hear about me and my adventures with the idiot over there *points to Reita*
      Reita: Yeah! Wait! Don't call me stupid midget!
      Ruki: That's offensive! We prefer little people!
      Okay guys I'm trying to write an anniversary journal here do you mind?
      Ruki: Only if you promise to write about us again!
      Sure whatever! Just get out of here! Besides, don't you have some songs to be working on!
      Ruki: I would... but I lost my pink sparkly pen and I can't write without it
      *throws pen at Ruki* Now go write something!
      Ruki: Okay bai bai! Come on Reita! I need to someone to reach the paper for me!
      Reita: Sure munchkin
      Okay now that they're gone... where was I? Oh yes~ Now honestly I don't know how to celebrate it~ My first anniversary I wrote special messages to my closest friends here, then for my second year I did a double celebration extravaganza for my 2nd anniversary/100th journal~ Hmm how about I celebrate with something that'll last a little while~ But only if a certain is met~ If I get 3 comments on this journal I will post a picture of myself as my profile pic for a week so you guys can see what Night-sama really looks like ;)
      I think that's a good way to celebrate the third year of my JPA life~ But it'll only happen if I get three comments no exceptions! If I don't get that I guess this journal will be the only way that my 3rd anniversary will be celebrated :p
      But once again I'd like to thank all of my friends on here for being amazing! Seriously without you I wouldn't enjoy this site as much as I do! I love you all <3
      But that's it for now! So until next time.... Bye guys!

        "*bleep*ing magnets, how do they work?" This is a question that has haunted me since last night when I heard Miracles by Insane Clown Posse how do they work? I don't want a scientific answer either--------- Hey everybody! It's Nightgaze here comin' at you live with the important questions in life and referencing an English song so this feels very odd to me... maybe I'm broken :undecided:

        "*bleep*ing magnets, how do they work?" This is a question that has haunted me since last night when I heard Miracles by Insane Clown Posse how do they work? I don't want a scientific answer either--------- Hey everybody! It's Nightgaze here comin' at you live with the important questions in life and referencing an English song so this feels very odd to me... maybe I'm broken :undecided:
        Anyways how are y'all doing? Seriously I don't know why I always ask this you guys this it's not like you can tell me... but I hope there's some of you out there who answer this question to your computer screen because that would highly amuse me and you would be the greatest person ever.. well second greatest person unless you're Miko ;)
        Speaking of Miko! I've been thinking about biases a lot lately and have come to terms with the fact that I am indeed a girl crazy guy person humanoid thing~ This is going to be my girlholics anonymous meeting except not really because I'm happy with who I am dammit! No the real point of this journal is that I want to see if I can rank my biases~ And I'm hoping some of you are at least interested in this or I'm just typing words that no one is going to read or care about in which case I'm just going to write about whatever~ I like cheesecake~ Actually cheesecake sounds delicious right now! I wish I had some dammit now I'm sad >.< What? You're still reading this? Well you my dedicated reader get absolutely nothing as a reward! *insert sound of children cheering* rather you get to see me elaborate on what this journal is actually about! :D
        So here is my tentative bias list~ I'm going to try my hardest to come up with a concrete order!

        1) Miko is it any surprise really? She is always my number 1! She's so beautiful and cute and talented~ She's literally my ideal woman <3 <3 <3 <3 <3
        https://40.media.tumblr.com/c7c84ab392bd51c81a8e3102677810dc/tumblr_nepj0jXBC31r2c8eco1_500.jpg

        2) Rina Yes Rina is still my number 2! I know I had a lot of ups and downs with her but after a lot of thinking the first Japanese girl I ever had a crush on is coming in at number 2
        http://nippop.com/uploads/assets/avatars/1331639351Rina-Suzuki-Kawaii-Wallpaper.jpg

        http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-N34FFcq2xUI/UNhqBUdgnkI/AAAAAAAAACo/ActYRCuXNts/s1600/RINA-SCANDAL-Show-PB.jpg

        3) Saki This is a crush that started last year for me during my Mary's Blood obsession~ She is extremely beautiful and so talented on the guitar~ Seriously her guitar skills are kind of a turn on not gonna lie :crazy:
        http://visualioner.files.wordpress.com/2014/03/mb_saki.png

        http://www.marshallblog.jp/images/2014/03/12/90v.jpg

        4) Jill This crush also started last year when I met her in person at Otafest and she was even my number two for a while~ She was so cute and seemed like a really lovable girl~ Plus Claymore is one of her favorite animes which makes me super happy :D
        http://img3.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20130726021728/visualkei/es/images/1/10/Tumblr_mfroyaf5W51qzbuoho1_500.jpg

        http://rosenoire.info/images/6_b.jpg

        5) Yui Which Yui you may ask? The ex-Ganglion member? The solo artist? Nope! I'm talking about the tiny adorable guitarist from Cyntia! She's new to this list~ And yes I know most guys go for Saki so this might be a shock to some but hey more Yui for me <3 I do find Saki to be really beautiful but I feel like Yui is more my type~ Maybe because she's a beautiful guitarist and the most adorable 5-foot package ever! <3

        http://images.khinsider.com/2012%20Uploads/11/The%20Death%20March/YUI.jpg

        6) Haruna She would've been 5th place if it weren't for that meddling Yui! To think there was a time when I was having a tough time deciding if I thought Rina or Haruna prettier~ She is another beautiful short girl with one of the most beautiful singing voices in my opinion~ And Haruna definitely knows how to turn on the sexy :crazy:
        http://www.generasia.com/w/images/thumb/d/de/haruna_ono_standard.jpg/350px-haruna_ono_standard.jpg
        http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-fEvdOfeUN8w/UCElclcKEeI/AAAAAAAAArU/eflcwCsHK-k/s640/388344_296300437077656_1287864844_n.jpg
        http://images.wikia.com/drama/es/images/2/25/Haruna_Ono.jpg

        7) Rio She was my bias in Mary's Blood before I really started to notice Saki~ But I still do find Rio to be absolutely gorgeous! She has a really pretty face and she is one of the few girls I know of that can really rock the short hair look~ And she seems so energetic and cute on twitter <3
        https://pbs.twimg.com/profile_images/550674555274924032/-CNINZdx_400x400.jpeg
        https://c1.staticflickr.com/9/8353/8333967571_883a7dc964_n.jpg
        http://livedoor.blogimg.jp/two04711201980/imgs/e/5/e520d82f.png

        8) Eye And rounding out my list of main biases is the beautiful vocalist from Mary's Blood~ Who's voice is just as beautiful as she is~ She has a bit more of a mature look than the others on this list but I still think she is extremely beautiful~ And I don't want to be punny here~ But Eye has really pretty eyes :moved:
        http://userserve-ak.last.fm/serve/_/63197115/Marys+Blood+EYE+03.jpg
        https://visualioner.files.wordpress.com/2014/03/mb_eye.png
        http://vignette3.wikia.nocookie.net/visualkei/images/0/03/EYE_01.jpg/revision/latest?cb=20121108114949&path-prefix=es

        So those are my 8 main biases~ They are the ones that are placed higher above the other pretty girls I see in my mind~ And the fact that I have 8 main biases makes me think I'm girl crazy~ Do you guys agree with that statement? Not that I'm gonna seek help or anything :p
        Also I don't know why I've been so list crazy lately! I need to find some more interesting things to talk about!
        But anyways that's all for now so until next time... bye guys!

          Hey guys! How's it going? Good? Bad? Alright? Potato?
          I'm doing quite potato myself

          Hey guys! How's it going? Good? Bad? Alright? Potato?

          If you can tell me what that means that would be great! I hope it doesn't mean I have some sort of disease :o
          Well I'm sure you know what this journal is about since you most likely read the title before clicking here so I'm going to keep the intro short since this might get long~ Or rather you probably want to see the list and potentially check out some songs you've never heard before! Because if I can introduce someone to a band they've never listened to before that would make all the work I put into this worth it because I put way too much work into these! Partly because I enjoy doing it but also because I hope others enjoy these types of things as well!
          I'd like to preface this quickly by saying usually in June I make a top 50 bands list but last year I surpassed the 300 band mark so I figure I could make it a top 100 list~ So yeah~ Let me know if you like any of these artists as well or if you find a new band that you like here!
          Without further adieu enjoy!

          • Dating in Japan: How Different is it Really?

            Posted on 24 January, 2015 (1 month ago) by Nightgaze · 92 views · 2 comments · 1 likes

            Hello Bonjour Hola and こんにちは everyone! It seems like I only know how to greet in four languages~ Aren't I just the most cultured person? :P
            So how is it shaking with y'all? I hope it's not shaking too much you might throw up!
            Now that the mandatory terrible joke is out of the way I'll get to the point of this journal which you should already know based on the title!

            Hello Bonjour Hola and こんにちは everyone! It seems like I only know how to greet in four languages~ Aren't I just the most cultured person? :p
            So how is it shaking with y'all? I hope it's not shaking too much you might throw up!
            Now that the mandatory terrible joke is out of the way I'll get to the point of this journal which you should already know based on the title!
            So I was on YouTube the other day watching some Visual Kei PVs when this video showed up on the side:

            How this showed up on the side of a G ∀LMET PV I will never know but YouTube works in mysterious ways :o
            Anyways~ Being a guy who is into Japanese girls curiosity got the better of me and I clicked on it!
            So if you watch this video or if you've seen it before you'll notice that as far as personality traits these girls like guys to have doesn't seem any different to western women~ They want a guy who's smart, funny, well dressed, and such and they said some other things that seem like things any girl would like in a boyfriend you know? Maybe it's just me but it makes me wonder how different it would be to date someone from Japan~ I should also say I didn't watch the one where they interviewed guys so I don't know how different they are
            I've also never dated someone from Japan before but based on this and other videos I saw Japanese girls don't seem too different from western when it comes to basic things they're looking for~ This assumption is ignoring cultural differences
            Honestly I thought I had more of a point when I started writing this but now I'm starting to realize that whatever point I had isn't as strong as I thought it was...
            Maybe the real reason I wanted to write this was because I found this video fascinating~ I mean the adorable girls aside it's interesting to see how another culture views things like dating because for core personality and some physical trait preferences were the same there were also quite a few differences so I would really love it if you guys would watch this video and watch the one where they interviewed the guys as well it should be on the side somewhere~ And let me know your thoughts on this! Do you guys find this sort of thing interesting or am I just weird and the only person who's interested in this?
            Also I want to say that I was very happy when basically all of them said that they would date a foreign guy~ Especially since some of them were really quick to say yes~ It gives me hope that I won't be alone forever lol :p And some of them would get a quick yes from me as well ;)
            Anyways I'm rambling at this point~ I guess my question this time is what are your thoughts and do you find this sort of thing interesting? I hope this journal wasn't a complete rambling that had no point >.< But if it is I guess I have to make more sense next time!
            But until next time... bye guys!

              But this is my first journal of 2015! Isn't that exciting? No? I'm the only one who's excited? That's cool too~

              Now for reals everyone! HAPPY NEW YEAR! Even though it's 8 days into 2015! One of these days I'll get it right :undecided:
              But this is my first journal of 2015! Isn't that exciting? No? I'm the only one who's excited? That's cool too~
              Anyways how are y'all doing? Did you have a great New Year's eve party? How many of you were hungover?
              So people always talk about having a New Year's resolution and plan to keep it for the whole year but that never really happens so that's why I never make them! Until now~ Yes this year I'm actually going to try to make some resolutions and see if any of them actually happens! And hopefully at the end of the year I'll remember to post a journal saying if I actually succeeded at any of them! :D
              So my first resolution is one I actually think will be the one that I stick to! And that is to listen to updates from as many active bands that I listen to~ I find that there's a lot of bands that I listen to up to a certain point but never keep up with them again~ For example let's say I listen to a band in 2013 and I listen to everything they've released up until that point and never listen to them again~ And I don't want to miss out on some great music again this year! So I've made a really long list of bands that I like that are still active and I'm going to keep up with their releases and try to listen to as much new music as I can! So if any of you want to help me with that it would be greatly appreciated! I'll post the list of bands I am going to be following in addition to my main bands~ So if you are a big fan of any of these bands I'd really appreciate it if you would help me keep up with their releases~ (I'm only posting bands that I think I'll need the most help following)
              MEJIBRAY
              Lycaon
              R-shitei
              Kiryu
              Codomo Dragon
              DIAURA
              Danger Gang
              Aldious
              DESTROSE
              Cyntia
              Grieva
              AvelCain
              REALies
              GOTCHAROCKA
              Zillapark
              My Bacteria Heat Island
              ALSDEAD
              Amber Gris
              Black Gene for the Next Scene
              D=Out
              DaizyStripper
              Arlequin
              Misaruka
              SiM
              Wagakki Band
              Yousei Teikoku
              BLACK SWAN

              My iTunes is going to explode by the end of the year :p
              And my second New Year's resolution is to meet a girl~ Yes this is something I talk about in my journals a lot so I'm going to put myself and you guys out of our misery by getting a girlfriend so I don't have to talk about it anymore! But I'm not going to force anything~ If something happens great! If not I have a resolution for next year
              And my third and final New Year's resolution is to have the means to go on a trip to Japan in 2016~ That improves greatly improving my Japanese language skills so once I start school I'm going to be really busy trying to do well in school and working and trying to become as fluent as I can in Japanese~
              So those are my New Year's resolutions in a nutshell~ My last couple journals were pretty long so I'll leave things at that for now~ Also did you guys make resolutions this year? If so let me know in the comments! Let's work towards them together! :D
              But until next time.... Bye guys!

                HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE! :D :D :D Yes I know it's still the 31st for most of the world still (Or at least it is at the time I'm writing this) But I have relatives coming in later today (it's currently 2 am here) So I'm writing part 3 of my 3 part year of end series that I hope y'all are enjoying because *sob* I don't know what I'd do if you didn't!

                HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE! :D :D :D Yes I know it's still the 31st for most of the world still (Or at least it is at the time I'm writing this) But I have relatives coming in later today (it's currently 2 am here) So I'm writing part 3 of my 3 part year of end series that I hope y'all are enjoying because *sob* I don't know what I'd do if you didn't!
                Anyways this is my third annual "top songs of the year" list that I just enjoy doing because I like discussing what songs I enjoyed in the year and hopefully some of you will tell me your favorites of the year as well~
                But I usually like to preface these with how the year went for me~ So 2014 had a lot of hard times for me featuring fantastic things like heartbreak, moving and having to say goodbye to my lifelong friends and losing my grandpa and boy I must say I don't know where I'd be if I didn't have music as my major support system because other than talking to friends music is something that always cheers me up~ But this year also had it's high points the highest being when I went to Otafest to meet an awesome friend and see Rose Noire live! :D And since music impacted me in that way this year some of the criteria for this list is how much the song helped me get through these hard times as well as how much I love the song~
                But without further adieu here is my top 15 songs of 2014! Something I've been working on since November so I put a lot of thought into this!

                15 Purple Stone-amazuppai mango

                Starting off our list at number 15 we have Amazuppai Mango by Purple Stone~ This kind of just made the list because it came out in November but this band is too amazing to not get a mention here! Everything they release just sounds so epic! I mean Keiya's voice has a certain power to it that makes me come back for more! And this song is a very catchy track that manages to have a very heavy beat that I just love!

                14 SCANDAL-Departure

                Next we have Departure by SCANDAL! This is by far my favorite song that SCANDAL released this year I just love the beat of this song especially when it hits the chorus~ The best way I can describe it is that it has a "walking pace" and I actually quite enjoy songs with this pace it makes it that much more catchy in my opinion~ And I especially love Haruna's vocals in this song :moved: This song first stuck out to me back in August when I was celebrating "second bias month" by watching their PVs~ I guess I should also mention I developed quite the obsession for the "SCANDAL IN THE HOUSE" PV but that's a story for another day~ For now I'll just leave you with "Departure is amazing" seriously even if you aren't a big fan of SCANDAL give this song a listen I'm sure you can appreciate it

                13 Nightmare-rewrite
                link to the PV
                Surprised to see Nightmare this low on the countdown? Or I guess high? I don't know how countdowns work... Yes I do love Nightmare and they are tied for my favorite band but I'm not being biased this year~ Now to talk about the song! I don't know what it is about this song that makes me love it so much! I think it just has that magical special sound that only Nightmare can do it's kind of like a slow song but it's faster at the same time and I think that might be the biggest reason I like it~ And it seems to possess this power to get into my head randomly and make me want to listen to it over and over! And I feel triumphant whenever I listen to it as well so that's a thing to~ Another fantastic single by Nightmare!

                12 MEJIBRAY-Theatrical Blue Black

                So I bet no one expected to see MEJIBRAY on this list ne? Seeing as how I almost never mention them~ But to be perfectly honest MEJIBRAY is a band that has always really fascinated me but I guess their music didn't have the same quality on me for a while that is until earlier this year when I became obsessed with their song Sabato~ And then I listened to this song... and WOW! Have you ever had a song that single handedly convinced you that you were going to follow a band from then on? Well that's what this song is! It's such an epic song! So hardcore! And Tsuzuku's screaming... damn I am a fan! My inner girl was quite pleased with this~ Dammit Nightette! I didn't invite you to this! Ignoring her... This song is so intense how can you not rock out to it and fail at attempting to scream like Tsuzuku and killing your throat in the process? Also I love love LOVE Meto's drumming in this song~

                11 exist†trace-RAZE

                So as you all know I am in love with WORLD MAKER! Honestly every track from this album could've been on this list but I think that would be boring for you guys to read and I've gushed enough about this album but I think I should come out and say that RAZE is my favorite song on the album! Simply put I love the way they combine the new and old sounds of exist†trace in this song perfectly combining Jyou's growling with Miko's vocals! I just wish it was longer because I can't get enough of this track! I knew when I heard this song on exist†trace's livestream that it was something special~

                10 lynch.-DEVIL

                Now we've hit my top 10 songs of the year with lynch.'s DEVIL~ Now the place that this song initially stood out to me is kind of weird~ So I was plant shopping with my mom listening to my lynch. playlist because that's totally appropriate for the occasion and this song came on and it just hit me like an epic tidal wave of amazingness! It's such an amazing song and my new favorite lynch. song it really features everything that makes this band amazing! This was the soundtrack of my life from like late February till April and it's huge impact on that part of the year for me lands this song in number 10~

                9 vistlip-Period

                So now we have the song that I mentioned in part 1 as having the best PV of the year~ The big shocker here is that I freaking love the song too! I'll be honest after my first listen I was a little bit disappointed because I was still on my Prey Shadow obsession but I had faith in vistlip so I listened to the song a few more times and developed an addiction to it! I also fell in love with the PV I especially love the part where the counting down numbers come in just the way they timed that feels so epic to me~ And as for the song's sound it's what you'd expect from vistlip something really catchy and infectious where Tomo shows off his amazing vocals! I think the only reason this beat out JACK for me was because it was released first so I had more time to listen to it and it stayed in my head more~

                8 Royz-Sasayaki Yuujo

                With CORE ranking really high on my Top albums of the year list it was expected that a Royz song would be on here ne? So what do I choose? Revelation? Lilia? Maybe I'll throw you off and pick Supernova~ Nope my favorite song on the album is Sasayki Yuujo~ It's a really fun fast paced song and it's pretty much at the center of my Royz obsession this year~ And it was a very Royz filled summer for me and lord knows I've been headbanging to this song! I also want to mention that I call this song "The Prostitute song" because one of the words- I believe it's Yuujo- translates to "prostitute" and that amuses me~ It was really hard to write about this song while listening to it because I had to resist the urge to head bang to it

                7 Lycaon-Shadow

                So how 'bout that Lycaon band this year huh guys? As I've said all three of their singles this year have been freaking mind blowing! I don't know how they haven't gotten more in the spotlight because of these songs! I'm gonna be honest hear the intro to this song is my ringtone because I find it that catchy! I love the mix of violins with that guitar riff it's just pure eargasm! Speaking of eargasms Yuuki's voice is pure sex it can even turn on a straight Miko obsessed male such as myself and I must say that it rather impressive I am so hyped for their new album coming out next year! :D

                6 SID-Enamel

                I'm gonna just come out and say it- I was very disappointed by OUTSIDER for me it was a weak album made by a band I know can do much better and they redeemed themselves for me when they released this song! This is the type of song that made me fall in love with SID it's rocking and upbeat and this is the sound I think SID does the best~ Or at least it's the one I like the best :p Also it's funny that this is a Kuroshitsuji opening because Monochrome no Kiss was the song that convinced me to listen to this band more :p And I love the guitar solo in this song! It's so fast paced and I love the little tone switch in it~ (is that the right word for it?) And I love how Mao says "Yes my lord" in it... Nice touch

                5 Alice Nine-Seven

                Now we've hit the top 5! Yay! And at this point I'm starting to get a little tired so if I start to stray off topic randomly that's why~ Anyways Alice Nine-Seven instrumentally it isn't anything special especially for Visual Kei it's your run of the mill Jrock song~ That is until you hear Shou's vocals it brings the song together and just gives it a really epic rocking feel! And the reason it is in the top 5 songs of the year for me is because it is the only song that I've been consistently obsessed with for the whole year~ So even if you don't like the direction Alice Nine has gone in you can't really argue with that ne?

                4 ScReW-FUGLY

                I'll start this off by saying I had a pretty good laugh when this single was announced because me and my friends use the word "Fugly" all the time (usually to refer to something as being stupid rather than using it's actual meaning) But with this song ScReW takes the electronic sound that a lot of Visual Kei bands have been using lately and they made it their own! Honestly this is probably the best use of the electronic sound in my opinion~ And holy mother of Jesus grandma Kazuki's guitar solo in this song! Tied for my favorite guitar solo of the year! What's the other one? I guess you'll have to find out muahahahahahahahahahahaha!!!!!

                3 BORN-THE STALIN

                BORN IS FREAKING BACK BABY! I know they didn't go anywhere but let's be honest they were not having a good run with their past couple singles which made me sad because I love me some BORN but they have redeemed themselves and restored my faith in them! This is the kind of material I expect from them! Something that's heavy and catchy has really amazing screaming and most of all makes me feel like a complete badass when I listen to it! And how can I have BORN on this list without mentioning Ryoga's outfits? He looks like Hitler at some points in this video and it kinda fits the theme of "evil dictators" but it's kind of the wrong one bro~ I wonder if anyone got outraged about that :undecided: Anyways this a freaking mind-blowing song

                2 xTRiPx-10+1

                Funny how xTRiPx makes number 2 on my list 2 times in a row~ They are just destined for second ne? I love this song! And it was actually really close to being number 1 but my heart told me to choose the other song~ But aside from this song being freaking amazing it was there for me during my lowest point of the year which was when I had my heartbroken when me and my girlfriend broke up I literally had this song on repeat while I was crying but this song really did help and encourage me to not give up because I felt really hopeless and that I would be alone forever~ xTRiPx told me to never give up! So this song has a really special place in my heart! I am really sad about xTRiPx disbanding though but I wish the members the best in the future and hope they never give up on their dreams either!

                Now before I get to my number 1 song of the year here are some Honorable Mentions because there were just too many amazing songs released this year that I wanted to put on the list but couldn't

                HONORABLE MENTIONS
                SuG-MISSING

                Nightmare-Drastica

                Link to the PV

                exist†trace-SHOOTING STAR

                ViViD-Hikari

                Codomo Dragon-Viper

                LM.C-MOGURA
                Link to PV

                1 Mary's Blood-Marionette

                So here you have it! My top song of 2014 is Marionette by Mary's Blood! This is the song my heart was telling me to make number 1 so here it is! And I must say I love this PV because LEGS LEGS LEGS LEGS LEGS LEGS LEGS LEGS LEGS LEGS LEGS LEGS LEEEEEEEEEEEEEGSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS! *passes out from a nosebleed* I'm sorry but those girls have fantastic legs! And I swear putting girls with sexy legs in a PV is not how you get to be my number 1 song of the year! Though it helps apparently >.< But on a serious note holy freaking mother of the sandwich I left in the fridge for lunch tomorrow! Whoever said girls can't do metal clearly has never listened to Mary's Blood before! I mean Eye's amazing melodic vocals, Saki's goddess like guitar skills, Rio's bass, and Mari's extremely powerful drumming make for an amazing combo! And to give you an idea of how much I love this song it single handedly convinced me to buy their album and not only that it sparked my obsession with Mary's Blood~ I mean if there's an award for most underrated band of the year these girls deserve it! They're so talented and I can't wait to hear what they have in store for the future!

                So those are my top 15 songs of 2014! Man that took me a long time to write so I hope you enjoyed it! And if you actually read everything I wrote you are amazing! Seriously everyone on here new friends and old even those who I've lost contact with- thank you for being my friend this year and in years past! I seriously don't know what I would do without you and I wish you all the best in 2015!
                And as always let me know what you think and let me know what your favorite songs of the year were because it was truly a fantastic year for music!
                But until next time... Bye guys!

                  Hey guys! How are things with you and the missus?
                  I don't know why I asked that~ I'm just assuming all of you are married to women~ Even though I'm pretty sure most of the people who will end up reading this will be women~ Why do I still question my intros? I should be used to my craziness or my mental alternativeness as I like to call it
                  Anyways I hope you all had a Merry Christmas, a Happy Hanukkah, a Kwazy Kwanza, and if you're not religious I hope you had a Happy Holid...

                  Hey guys! How are things with you and the missus?
                  I don't know why I asked that~ I'm just assuming all of you are married to women~ Even though I'm pretty sure most of the people who will end up reading this will be women~ Why do I still question my intros? I should be used to my craziness or my mental alternativeness as I like to call it
                  Anyways I hope you all had a Merry Christmas, a Happy Hanukkah, a Kwazy Kwanza, and if you're not religious I hope you had a Happy Holidays (bonus points if you know where the Kwazy Kwanza reference is from)
                  To get to the point this is the journal I promised would be up yesterday but when I said that I wasn't expecting to have two extremely early mornings in a row so I was feeling really sleep deprived yesterday which caused this journal to not be uploaded yesterday~
                  So without further adieu I'm going to start off my list of my top 10 Jrock albums of 2014 which is Part 2 of my end of the year journal series which I hope you guys are enjoying by the way~
                  Also quickly before starting this I'm not counting Mini Albums in this list so if you want to know what my favorite Mini Albums of the year are ask me and I'll be happy to let you know!

                  10 NoGoD-Make a New World
                  http://www.musicman-net.com/files/2014/08/f53f6aa7a5dcd0.jpg
                  Starting off our list we have NoGoD's album Make a New World~ As you guys should know by now I love me some NoGoD but I'm always iffy about albums where a band only has new songs ever since BORN's Vigour album which was a pretty big flop in my opinion~ But Make a New World is in now way a flop with some great tracks such as Follow and Banzai this is a pretty decent album! Not my favorite album by this band but a great one to rock out to nonetheless~

                  9 D-KINGDOM
                  http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-OjblfTRvQQ8/VGzEemzygDI/AAAAAAAAIrs/IpUHJW9wVUY/s1600/kingdom_tokuten02.jpg
                  This was a release that I almost forgot to listen to when it came out but I'm glad I didn't miss out on it! This album was backed up by some pre-released singles unlike Make a New World and that's why for me this album finished ahead of NoGoD's album also I really like the song Blood Moon~ To sum up this album it's nothing groundbreaking by D but if you're a fan of their music you will enjoy this album

                  8 Sadie-GANGSTA
                  http://www.brand-x.jp/data/brand-x/product/20140906_c342c4.jpg
                  So I have to say when I first heard the name of this album I had myself a good laugh and was like "What? Is Sadie gonna be trying a hip hop/rap sound now?" Thankfully that wasn't the case as this is Sadie being Sadie I can't even begin to comprehend what it is that I really love about this album but I just enjoyed listening to every song on this album and I also like how this album didn't seem as heavily influenced by Dir en Grey like Madrigal de Maria was~

                  7 ScReW-PSYCHO MONSTERS
                  http://www.jpopasia.com/img/album-covers/3/37174-andltahrefhttpwwwjpo-m0l8.jpg
                  So I'm just going to preface this by saying this isn't ScReW's best major album~ Not saying that this is a bad album by any means because it's amazing like every other ScReW album and it has some really catchy and awesome songs on it such as FUGLY, Spiral of Mistrust, and Hetler Sketler to name a few~ And I have to say the type B limited edition with their 8th anniversary live on it was worth every penny!

                  6 Alice Nine-Supernova
                  http://tuneuplyrics.files.wordpress.com/2014/03/alicenine-supernova.jpg
                  I know what some of you are thinking and yes I know Alice Nine hasn't been on top of their game for a while now but I want to say that I think Supernova is a really underrated album and actually makes me enjoy Daybreak, Shadowplay, and Shooting Star more than I did when they were released as singles I think this is overall a very well put together album sure we all know Alice Nine has released much better albums but this is a really solid album like every other Alice Nine album they just aren't the same band they were back in 2007 but I still think they release great music

                  5 ViViD-The Pendulum
                  http://i1060.photobucket.com/albums/t446/vences_reno4/vivid/vivid-the-pendulum-a.jpg
                  Now we're in my top 5 albums of the year! And starting off the top 5 is The Pendulum by ViViD now I'm sure this is a very unpopular opinion~ But what can I say? Although I am as saddened and disappointed at ViViD's decision to ditch their VK style as pretty much all of their fans are I'm happy to say they haven't been drastically changed their musical style and while some people might argue that they've gone for a more pop influenced sound I urge them to listen to some of this album's gems such as Winding Road, Theater, and The Devil Whispers this band is consistently amazing with every release and I'm a proud owner of a copy of this album!

                  4 Royz-Core
                  http://www.soundofjapan.hu/v3/wp-content/uploads/2014/06/royz-core-covers.jpg
                  This is an album that I'm legitimately surprised that it wasn't nominated for album of the year am I missing something here? Because I think this is Royz's best album I love every song on this album and can go back and listen to them all the time and enjoy them as much as the first time some of my favorites on this album apart from Egoist and Lilia which we already know are amazing are Sasayaki Yuujo, Boogieman, Shippu Jinrai, and Revelation this album was also at the center of my Royz obsession that happened this summer~

                  3 Nightmare-To Be or Not To Be
                  http://japan-discoveries.com/images/album_nightmare_to%20be%20or%20not%20to%20be%20limited%20B_00.jpg
                  So now we're in the top 3~ We've reached the big boys now~ And what better way to start this out than with Nightmare's To Be or Not To Be~ I must admit there is a little bit of bias in this decision but not much~ I LOVE THIS ALBUM! It is truly amazing the first time I listened to it I fell in love with every song and as I listened to it more and more I became more hooked on the songs it's just a really solid Nightmare album and it always reminds me why they're my favorite band when I listen to it these guys are so cool! <3

                  2 Mary's Blood-Countdown to Evolution
                  http://4u.pacn.ws/640/kk/countdown-to-evolution-370223.1.jpg
                  This year Mary's Blood released their first full album which was also their major debut and I must say they couldn't have produced a stronger album for this momentous occasion! This is a fantastic album with a powerful promotional track in Marionette which after listening to that how can you not desire to listen to the rest of the album? Well let me tell you you won't be disappointed with some amazing tracks such as XOXO-kiss&hug-, BLACK CAT, and Coronation Day to name a few this album will have your heart racing and you'll be rocking out from start to finish this is an extremely fast-paced metal album~ Who said girls couldn't do metal? Honestly I like them better than any male metal band these girls are extremely talented musicians and if you haven't listened to them you're missing out! But this album is a good place to start ;)

                  1 exist†trace-WORLD MAKER
                  http://jrock247.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/09/JRock247-exist-trace-WORLD-MAKER-review.jpg
                  Is it any surprise that this album is number 1 on my list considering how much I've been fanboying over it since it came out? This album is definitely worthy of all the fanboy gushing I do over it! exist†trace shows off just how talented and ranged they are with this album! I literally have listened to this album hundreds of times I can't get over how well put together it is! It's truly special~ I could go on but then I would just be restating what I said in my review so if you want to hear more fanboying over this album I strongly urge you to check that out~

                  So those were my top 10 albums of 2014! I know there were tons of Jrock albums released this year so I'm sure I missed some of your favorites so let me know what your top Jrock albums of the year are and what you think of my list~ And I will be writing my top 15 songs list on New Year's Eve day so stay tuned for that! It's gonna be great!
                  But until next time... Bye guys!

                  • JPA Music Awards! How they would be if I chose them... or something

                    What's up daaawwgs! Sheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeet it's been a while! I haven't been online at all in the past 2 weeks! And I appleogize for that!
                    I'm going to write about that later this weekend but now I'm starting a three part series to end off 2014 where I talk about the year as far as Jrock goes~ This is mostly going to be opinion stuff~

                    What's up daaawwgs! Sheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeet it's been a while! I haven't been online at all in the past 2 weeks! And I appleogize for that!
                    I'm going to write about that later this weekend but now I'm starting a three part series to end off 2014 where I talk about the year as far as Jrock goes~ This is mostly going to be opinion stuff~
                    For those of you who are new here Every year since I've joined JPA I've done a "top Jrock songs of the year" list and I'm expanding on that concept a bit and making it into a three part as I've said!
                    So this week I'm going to be talking about the nominations for the JPA awards and talk about who I would pick for said awards~ This is in no way me saying the mods made bad choices in the nominations I'm just going to state my opinion for those of you who are interested and we can have a little discussion about all of our choices~ That sounds fun right?
                    So before that I just want to mention that next week I'm going to be counting down my top 10 Jrock albums of the year~ So if you have any albums that were released this year that you really liked let me know in the comments and I'll give them a listen and maybe they'll make the list! So look forward to that next Friday which is the 26th
                    And on New Year's Eve I'm going to be counting down my top 15 songs of the year~ And I've been preparing this since around Halloween so get excited for that!
                    So without further adieu here's my run down of this years JPA awards and what I would've chosen~ Enjoy!
                    Q1: Best Rockband:
                    So as expected ONE OK ROCK was picked for this category and I'm assuming they're gonna win this and it's well deserved~ I don't listen to ONE OK ROCK much but I do really like what I have heard~ And as for the other nominees I haven't listened to them at all aside from a couple anime songs that Nico Touches the Walls did~
                    Who wins my best rockband award?
                    SiM!
                    http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-sFYLRPWgAhw/Ts7wCaJBZBI/AAAAAAAAEAc/neT7VewHlCM/s1600/SiM.png
                    I just started listening to this band this year and I really love what I've heard! I love their really intense and in your face sound! And I love the vocals!

                    Q2: Best Visual Kei Band
                    I have to say these are some interesting choices not gonna lie... They're all really good bands don't get me wrong (I'm personally rooting for BORN) but I really wasn't expecting this~ Maybe it's because I don't really follow these bands have they had big years that I'm not aware of?
                    Who wins my best Visual Kei Band award?
                    Lycaon!
                    http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-ZyfPrYeCUcY/UsYkqMcLJVI/AAAAAAAADyE/TILYA2krNb0/s1600/Lycaon.png
                    With three super super solid single releases this year I feel like it would be a crime to not give it to them! Seriously Baka ne, Akujo no Hohoemi, and Shadow are some of the most infectious Jrock songs I've heard in a LONG time!

                    Q3: Best solo act
                    So I'm gonna preface this by saying solo artists aren't a thing I listen to often so I'm not going to run my mouth off on these nominees I'm just going to say that my award goes to Miyavi!
                    https://31.media.tumblr.com/a26852f90698ee4ee90aa31defcae14a/tumblr_n7ybwysT4l1txbfuno1_500.jpg
                    Also want to say I'm pumped for Unbroken! Can't wait to see Miyavi acting! :D

                    Q4: Best Music Video:
                    So I haven't watched a lot of the videos except for Guard You and Shadow~ The only thing I'm really wondering is why is Shadow in this category? The song is freaking fantastic but the PV is nothing special It should've been in the best song category :undecided:
                    My best music video award goes to vistlip-Period!

                    This song is amazing and I love the art direction in the video~ It's very nice to look at! Also it's the kind of art I think of when I think of vistlip very old style and classy~

                    Gonna skip Best Song and Best Album for now because that's going to spoil my other list but I'm sure you all know that I am voting for WORLD MAKER to be the best album out of the nominations! Such a solid album

                    Q7: Best New Artist:
                    So I can't help but point out that two of the nominees started in 2013 not 2014 and I'm pretty sure geek sleep sheep was nominated for this award last year~ I don't know if 2013 bands qualify for these awards to in which case there's a lot better choices for this award in my opinion but I guess the mods just don't agree with me~
                    At any rate my award for Best New Artist that is going to a band that also started in 2014 is Zillapark!
                    http://zillapark.com/wp-content/themes/zillaparkVer2/img/main.jpg
                    My Bacteria Heat Island was so close to winning this for me but when I listened to Wolf Blood for the first time I was hooked! And the fact that they hooked me with only one song really says something about how talented they are and the potential they do have! I strongly urge people to check them out as well!

                    Q8: Favorite Group
                    So now to the awards where you can pick your own answers! For this one my award goes to exist†trace
                    http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-Kx6Hmh0Zw5s/T7lJvQezHJI/AAAAAAAAAGA/bTn4jzaa9zU/s1600/existtrace2.jpg

                    Q9: Favorite Solo:
                    Again Miyavi wins this

                    Q10: Sexiest Rocker
                    Is there really any doubt for this one? My winner for sexiest rocker is and always will be my beloved Miko! <3 <3 <3
                    http://cdn3.bigcommerce.com/s-kxmquf/product_images/uploaded_images/exist-trace-miko-spiral-daisakusen-t-shirt.jpg

                    So that's it! Those are the winners of Night-sama's First annual 2014 Jrock awards! I will now have Miko come up on stage to claim the prize on behalf of all the winners :crazy:
                    So let me know what you think of my picks and also who wins your 2014 Jrock awards! And stay tuned for part 2 where I talk about my top 10 Jrock albums of the year! :D
                    But until next time.... bye guys!

                      Anyways how are y'all doing today?
                      Well today is a special day~ Or I guess it's a special month because December marks the third anniversary of my crush on Miko!

                      Well today is a special day~ Or I guess it's a special month because December marks the third anniversary of my crush on Miko!
                      Yes this is a big deal for me because she really means a lot to me and I love her to death! I just wanted to write a little short thing about the most beautiful girl in the world
                      I honestly didn't really plan out how to do this because I want this to be straight from the heart and planning what I want to say would ruin that
                      But I remember when I first saw Miko three years ago in exist†trace's PV for RESONANCE and I was stunned by how beautiful she was and of course had to find more of their videos (I think I told this story before but this is a little recap for those who are new here and if you're new here hi welcome to my crazy journals! I'm super biased towards Miko!)
                      Anyways I'm going to share with you why she means so much to me and will always have a special place in my heart now matter what as some of you know I have a tendency to get depressed over girls as stupid as that is but how do I get through it? Not by listening to music no I think about Miko and she's kind of like my safety net that I have so I can say "so what who cares about that girl? I'm saving myself for Miko anyways" I know that probably sounds really pathetic but it's true and I don't give a crap what anyone thinks about it! Call me insane say I'm deluded to think I have a chance with her because I really don't care because I know realistically I likely won't have a chance with her but like I said she's my safety net~ She is my girlfriend until I get a real girlfriend god dammit!
                      So I want to thank Miko for just being the amazing and wonderful girl that she is and that I will always support her no matter what! I know she's never going to read this (and if she does I'm totally embarrassed right now) but I just want to have that out there
                      But that's all I really have to say about that~ But to celebrate I'm going to spam this journal with pics of Miko <3 I love you <3
