Greetings from Chicago

Hello everyone! My name is Mike and I was Mihenno on MH. My online presence there has dwindled within the past year, but I’m excited for J-ROCK ONE and hope to be much more active in 2021.

I got into Japanese rock and visual kei around 2007/2008 with exposure to Gackt, L’Arc~en~Ciel, the GazettE, and Ayabie. I was blessed to be able to go to Japan for the first time last November before the pandemic. I was able to see bands such as RAZOR, GAM!, ZON, NetherGarden122, ARCHEMI, and RAKUGAKI. The whole trip was an experience I’ll never forget and I hope to one day go back!

I like to travel, love food, and I dabble in photography and video games from time to time.

I’ll close this out with a list of social media if you want to add/follow me and list some bands I like so you can see what my music taste is like.

Welcome to the new forum!
You have went to a lot of gigs in Japan? That’s awesome :star_struck: I myself have been to Japan twice, but sadly hadn’t seen any bands live. Maybe that’ll change once covid will be over.
Anyway, nice to see you!
