It's largely populated by females that love them from their old days and idolize the members, a lot more than the actual music. If you talk to one of these fans about the music there's only 2 things they can (honestly) tell you: 1. which their favorite member is (99% of the time it's Kyo, the vocalist) or 2. The feels they have with a particular song and how it saved their lives.
Then you have the hot topic-tier fans that are just there because they caught onto the band in 2008, and that about rounds out the entire fanbase. i used to go to their shows; but the audience was more focused on their placement in the crowd in relation to the band, and a conformist "stand still and stare at the band" attitude during the performance. They play fucking metal, and fans get butthurt when you try to start a pit.
I don't support or listen to visual kei/"J-rock" music in any way. Most of the bands in that whole 'scene' are full of naive, low-class dropouts who just wanted to be rockstars and ended up in a really fucked up contract because it was either be in a VK group or flip burgers. Their entire lives are run by a record label, whether that's what they want or not. Sometimes they have to share Japanese-tier tiny apartments with 3 other guys. It's so depressing.
When it comes to Japanese music, though; I like Number Girl the most. One of my favorite bands of all time. They're super underrated on /mu/. I'd happily exchange all of the Midori discussion for NG discussion.
>>50177001 Those guys did the best soundtrack to one of my favorite films of all time. Didn't really like the songs that are outside of the soundtrack though. Too "rockabilly" for me. Can understand the appeal though.
>>50179578 9mm Parabellum are also pretty great. I liked their first few releases, kind of stopped following them around their third album though.
