ok i just want to make a clear topic for japanese bands..i want to seperate Visual Kei Bands,Non-Visual Kei Bands and Boy Bands..cause i dont want them all in one topic.

Visual Kei-refers to a movement among Japanese musicians,That is characterized by the use of eccentric, sometimes flamboyant looks. This usually involves striking make-up, unusual hair styles and elaborate costumes, often, but not always, coupled with androgynous aesthetics.most insider sources state that Visual Kei is unique at clothing and make-up fashions.


Non-Visual Kei- Normal Fashion, Plain Look, just no weird stuffs or many fashion accessories in there body,no too much make ups, and just a normal and plain hairstyles.


Favorite Visual Kei:
-L'Arc-en-Ciel (sorry im not really a big fan of visual kei..but this is the only VKband that i appreciate)
-Judy and Mary (and this one too)



Favorite Non-Visual Kei:
-Asian Kung-Fu Generation
-Bump of Chicken
-Beat Crusaders
-Ellegarden
-The Pillows
-UVERworld
-The Back Horn
-Number Girl

Favorite VK would have to be Gazette. Or Silver Ash, although they are Chinese.

Favorite non-VK would be Luna Sea.

Visual Kei - I'm really stuck here, I am unable to think of one VK band that I actually like, I suppose L'arc~en~ciel are okay.
Non Visual Kei - Well, other than boybands & other terrible pop bands (of which I could name several), the only one I really like is Ellegarden.

Ehh, I don't listen to much Japanese music, I prefer Korean.
