    Vivi (Ganglion) is now playing support drums for Bridear in Kai's absence.

    Next we'll hear that Oni (Ganglion) is the support singer for Aldious. That would actually be a fantastic choice....she has that sultry sound like Re:NO.

    We can only hope.......

    Mainly because of japan's reluctance to share music outside Japan

    A lot of Japanese bands are releasing music and there's a ton of japanese music on their charts from Jrock bands too but surprisingly they cannot be found anywhere on the internet thereby killing the international hype

    Ohhh, this is such an old topic which I really don't wanna discuss any more. I even had this conv with Japanese. I told them if they weren't so closed J music would be more popular than K music.

    For a significant amount of time, Japanese music was way more popular than K music from the alt rock bands of last century to the rockbands led by anime invasion starting from Dragonball and Sailor Moon, Japanese music did make a huge mark outside Japan. But yeah their biggest companies like Sony and all think its wise to keep the music within the country. Hell even my favourite band Scandal, I cannot find their new and oftimes even their old music on youtube or spotify or anywhere
    The only way I keep up with their releases is instagram

    It angers me so much

    Youtube is about the only outlet to see/hear most of it, and even there it is so little. Sony, Victor, et al refuse to pay the fees anymore since YouTube Red started. Scandal no longer has much of a presence, but Band-Maid is very popular.

    You still have to go to Yesasia.com, or Amazon.co.jp to buy most of it, but it is usually easy and available.

    Many Artists in JRock bands are like this. Shinpei (ex. SuG) for example helped GOTCHAROCKA out as support drummer in 2013 for example and I know of many more bands where such a thing happend

    Gacharic Spin was a classic example when Fuki stepped in for support when Armmy left. Later, they formed Doll$Boxx as a spinoff group.
