    I'd still give it the 3-Episode rule, since I am being biased a bit (maybe justified, idk). You could end up liking it, but just know there is only one type of demographic that will enjoy this storyline..... My bother and a couple friends have been gushing over this, so most likely yeah, I'll be watching it lol. Not sure if my rose-tinted nostalgia glasses are gonna be judging the crap out of it, but we'll see.

    The only show I'm trying to watch is Hanyou no Yashahime: Sengoku Otogizoushi (Yashahime: Princess Half-Demon), otherwise known as the Inuyasha sequel that no one asked for. Hard to tell you if the show is good or not, the first couple episodes were kinda of filler/fan-service (not a good start) and the vibe I get is more on the lines of some sort of FanFic made into a studio anime and not a proper successor to the original show. I am very biased, so maybe it's that, but I feel they already "shat the bed" by giving the story no concrete plot 5 episodes in and the characters are a real bore (nothing special about them aside from being descendants of the previous cast).

    Japan has always had this admirable way of portraying modesty vs indecency through mediums such as animation, where the existence of Ecchi anime, imo, (the good ones at least) proved that there can be a plot (probably how the joke started) to go with the lewdness, great example being my favorite of the genre: Golden Boy. The Ecchi genre now is a former shell of itself (not gonna go off-topic with my complaints) that I've become numb to many antics that I would consider "yawn" worthy. It just doesn't flow seamlessly and so it feels forced in a show that sometimes has great potential but falls short. I'm not gonna give you a MAL- length review on why Shimoneta is on my top list (I could though haha) but this show approaches both sides of the morality fence perfectly, sometimes even tossing them both out the window, leaving you with those moments of weakness that prove just how pointless it is to be worrying about "right and wrong", bringing back that Ecchi nostalgia where I felt that this should be normal at this point. Prison School is a completely different beast and one I applaud mostly because it's a big "open your fucking eyes" to morally-wound people that think these characters don't exist irl. The indecency of many types of people that exist (the perverts, the masochists, the possessive/abusive types, and all the sexual fetish-ers) are shown here in their normalcy because they do in fact exist and this is the purest, raw form of what these people are truly like, no harem-joke bullshit and no stupid half-hearted attempts to be edgy, it just comes naturally and feels that way watching it. This show is what real fans of the genre want as the next big thing and Japan delivered. I'm proud lol.

      @YuyoDrift but you always write at least 3 paragraphs in every message ;) what's with the hipocrisy there?

    Shit, now I’m thinking he was waiting for VK to get to the lowest point it ever could (bands disbanding in droves, live houses in shambles, the rich and powerful getting more exposure to the Yoshiki business model) before releasing it since nothing else would come out for weeks and promotion would be easy. Probably thinks he will save VK with it 😂. If he does, wow.....and now that I think of it, I expect donations to Japan’s most affected musical areas to be his targets, but for a musician to care about the places that made them big is rare.

    Wow I messed up the song selection option haha. It was honestly tough to choose one of the two to feature, but I continuously see music from Emadara being referenced as favorites by Laputa fans. It's also my favorite of the two so 😜. These guys are a master of their craft and EMADARA proves it. It's like a story being told, a rollercoaster ride, as well as an acted out play, all in one with these songs. My favorites are just like many others: "MOVE OF DARKNESS", "MONOCHROME", and "FREESIA". The chords in these tracks are just a marvel to listen to, down to the resonance, which I feel is missed by many musicians of today.

    You're getting claps?!?!? I would rather have that than 50+ idiots howling like maniacs EVERY EVENING in an attempt to do the same thing, like ok?? How the fuck did this become a thing. On the topic of stupidity, I don't find it comforting that I'm earning WAY more from unemployment checks than I had with a fulltime job........and so considering that I don't have to work for another month or so, it makes sitting on my couch drinking beer and playing video games surreal enough that it's hard not to see how broken the income system here in the USA is.

    Just in time for the new iPhone SE release lol

    Oh, this is a nice change of pace. The experience that is Mother gets much of my praise musically for its incredible arrangements that paint a vivid depiction of Luna Sea's initial career and the era it was birthed in. What's also worth noting is that many songs you think will end up a flop, gradually and surprisingly, get amazingly better as the track progresses. Once you hear that shift in direction after the buildup, you'll understand what I mean, it's something I've rarely experienced. Personally I think the break-periods with calmer songs in-between made the listening experience that much more enjoyable, and even those songs give you that same overall album feeling to keep things vivid. "Genesis of Mind", without a doubt, pulled a fucking David Bowie on my ass, continuing to prove that it is the "long-song"-ers that end up being worth the entire listen, and it's my favorite song on this album, hands-down. "Mother" is one of the best "last songs" I've heard thus far, you wouldn't even think it was last song in that album. By just Mother alone, I'd be convinced that these were some majorly dedicated musicians with so much potential and creativity that was blossoming for its time. If other fans are saying that this is Luna Sea at their best, then that is a pretty fucking convincing argument. This is a pretty high point to be at, I'll admit, it's unreal. I wish I was there in person to witness this album being created in the studio, I like this album that much. Really, I know this saying gets overused but, this is a release that you deserve to listen to if you consider yourself a VK fan. There are a lot of great tracks that make the listen worth it, but the overall achievement I feel having listened to it is my takeaway.
  13. That's honestly one way of looking at it, I agree. New blood must have helped, for sure (unless they never got a replacement then ahhh). I also low-key like the cover album art for this.
  14. I have to take some time to come back to their past work, as the last I recall was some members had left. Good to see that they at least have material coming out, hopefully those previews sound good.
  15. I am now convinced that Kuroyume was the sole forefather of all the VK  I enjoy. Haha.

     

    Shout-out to their album, FAKE STAR.
