Friending Meme 「お友達になりましょ~か☆」  
Some months ago, I thought about doing one of those friending memes for this community. Then I thought I should do it on Valentine's Day, but as you probably noticed, I didn't. D: I just moved into my own apartment and I've had a lot to do lately, so it just slipped my mind. But it's not too long since Valentine's Day, so I figured I might just as well do it now.

I know, there's a lot of these going around livejournal all the time, but.. I find them nice every time. :D ♥

Omfg, this became super long. D: I hope someone has the patience to read at least some of my answers, haha. ♥

What's your personality? Usually I'm rather cheery and hyperactive, I easily get obsessed with bands and musicians and I talk and write a lot. I can write long entries about things that most people would probably write only a few lines of.
What do you usually post about? Everything. Most of the time I write about music, though; usually Japanese music, but especially nowadays, also some western artists. I especially write about musicians that I love.

♡ M U S I C
Favourite music genre: Rock and metal. If I have to be more specific, visual kei is perhaps my favourite genre--but then again, musically visual kei is a really vague genre.. But perhaps that's why I like it--it's really versatile. There's a lot of bad visual kei bands, but also a truckload of good ones. Overall, I like music with a heavier feel to it, but I'm also a sucker for ballads and melancholy songs.
Favourite musicians: If I had to say only one, Sono of Jeniva/Matenrou Opera. I have an unhealthy obsession with him and his voice. Cell of Siva is The Best bassist in my opinion--I saw him once live, and I've never seen anyone play bass as beautifully as he did. Other musicians that I respect are Murai Kenjirou (ex.cali≠gari, SMG, PSG, etc.), Nishinohara Seisu (ex.Genshoku Atom, now in Cinema S'trip), Yoshikawa Masatoshi (ex.Guruguru Eigakan, now in Taiheiyou Belt), and many, many more.
All time favourite bands: Kagerou, Matenrou Opera, THE.LAST, Taiheiyou Belt, NoGoD..
Current favourite bands: My worst obsession at the moment is Matenrou Opera, which is funny because it's been going on for some 1,5 years now. Haha.

Have you seen any Japanese bands live? If so, what bands? Yes. Here is a list of all of them.
What's the best Japanese band you've seen live? Oh my, I've loved them all. Well, not really, but it's really hard to pick just one favourite because Japanese bands tend to have such a powerful presence on stage that many bands that I would never have thought that I'd like have impressed me very much live. The most important lives for me personally have, however, been Kagerou, Matenrou Opera, and THE.LAST, at least.
Do you plan on going to see any Japanese bands anytime soon? Yes. AnCafe, Dio, The Candy Spooky Theater, Matenrou Opera and Versailles are coming to Finland next month, and because I'm a masochist and want to not eat anything in a month, I plan on going to all of them. XD
If you could choose, which band(s) would you like to come to your country? My dearest wish has just been fulfilled and Matenrou Opera is coming to Finland, so I don't know what to answer to this question now. :D
What would you say if you had the chance to talk to your favourite Japanese musician? I have had the chance and I was so nervous I could barely get a word out of my mouth. But, I told him I was the Finnish girl who's e-mailed him and to whom he sent a CD and all that, and he recognized me, and asked me about the CD and all that kind of stuff. I met him twice, but we didn't really talk that much because he's really, very quiet and shy--just like me. XD

Continued in the next comment, because it became too long ;x

And here comes the first comment... part II!

Who's the most stylish jrocker? The most stylish one is definitely Mitsu of lad. I fell in love with his style when I saw him wearing his normal clothes after their live; he has a really personal, unique style, which fits him amazingly. anzi of Matenrou Opera also seems quite stylish, same goes with Kazuha of gaudie. (ex.Giro). Actually, a lot of them seem quite stylish; Japanese guys seem to have a thing for taking care of their looks, which I find awesome.
Who's the least stylish jrocker? Hahaha, Nono? Danchou? XD I don't know.
What band has the best visuals? Right now, I think I'm liking gaudie.'s style the most. They look super awesome, don't they? Lucy is also very beautiful.
What band has the worst visuals? Oh man, there's so many of them. Generally I don't like bands that try to be pretty or cute, but fail miserably. I both dark and colourful styles, regular visual kei, oshare kei and everything in between, but I'm one of those people who prefer the polished, neat look over smudgy make-up and half-assed costumes. Naturally, none of this matters if the band's music is good/crap, but anyway.
Which visual kei subgenre looks the best? It really depends. I think I like dark, stylish looks, such as dark suits with dark make-up and accessories (good examples are UnsraW's and girugamesh's newest styles, as well as gaudie.) the most, but I can like any style if it's well done, fits the band's image, and .. I don't know how to say it, but if the band members all have a similar style, you know? I mean, they have to look like they're from the same band, not like they stole any frilly and "pretty" things from their mothers' wardrobes.

Whose blog is the best?/Whose blogs do you follow? I follow rather a lot of blogs. My favourites are Matenrou Opera's blog of course, then Yui of THE.LAST, Kazuha of gaudie., Kyousuke of ZIPCY / gaudie. support, Kazuki of ex.Bergerac, Mitsu of lad, Seisu/leo of Cinema S'trip, Nega, Siva, MaveRick, NoveLis, NoGoD, Tomoya of Idon'trememberhisnewbandsname, Hi-na of SaTaN/Schwarz lilie, ... and so on.
Whose blog pictures are the funniest?
Whose blog is the most boring? gaudie.'s Kazuha's. LOL. I'm not joking, his blog is terribly boring, yet I read it every day because he's such an amazing bassist and omfg. ):
Who's the dorkiest? Yui of THE.LAST. By far. His blog is sometimes almost impossible to read because he plays with words so much, but he's the dorkiest of dorks and cutest of cutes. XD
Something random about a random jrocker: Sono just updated his blog twice in two days, which I swear has to be some kind of a record for him, but he only talked about his hair. D:<!

Anything else you would like to say? I love making new friends, so please, don't let my rambling scare you off and comment~! Even if it's just something random, go ahead! Random comments are good :3
