New Member says hi!

Hi everyone and nice to meet you!

About myself I would say Im an older Vkei and metal fan lol Im an Italian expat living in Japan…and Im already 36 but I hope its ok to be here anyway!

I have been listening to Jrock, Vkei and other stuff for many years, but because of Covid I stopped going to concerts and, dont ask me why since I dont know myself, also stopped listening to music almost entirely…
Then the other day I went to a live, I kind of woke up and remembered how much I love bands, artists and concerts, how much they supported me through my younger years and so on…

One can be pretty lonely in Japan, so I wanted to try and connect with people with similar tastes/interests one more time!
Given my age, I used to join forums a lot (and I still prefer them to SNS somehow) so I was delighted to find this community ^^

Enough for now, looking forward to reading you~


Welcome!! Hope you’re able to find more stuff to rekindle your interest while you’re here :slightly_smiling_face:

Welcome on the forum!
We have quite some people around your age as well, don’t worry. I’m in my late 20’s as well, so hitting the 30’s soon :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:
Feel free to join our discord server if you haven’t, real-time chatting with our members here can be fun and you could exchange your music interests and such as well.

Also I think it’s fair enough to take a break from Jrock/vk, I did so too for 4-5 years and then came back and I’m totally into it again. Somehow it just stay where your heart belongs to.

I hope you have a good time here, if you come across anything that you need to speak out to, you can always reach the staff team, we’re always ready to help :slight_smile:

See you around!

Hello, welcome to JRO! I hope you enjoy your time here but I’m sure you will. :smile:

Thank you so much for your warm welcome, all of you!

Im starting to look around and I think I will also try to write and be active in some topic (I tend to read mostly). I realized I forgot to mention in my introduction that Im a girl, not that it matters but just in case lol
Also I apologize for the weird way my posts look font-wise, it might be something related to my pc/keyboard…

OMG SERIOUSLY!!! Dude!!! Im so jealous!!!

I was lucky to be able to get a ticket, they went sold out in like 2 minutes…its always like this with coldrain, SiM and similar bands...they do a lot of coupling/three-man tours too, so all fans converge and its even more difficult lol
I have to exercise my old fingers to get fasters on the smartphone XD

Also fans are pretty laid-back and nice, I dont need to dress nice or feminine or anything and I dont see many ban-gyaru thankfully…I`m a girl too and I liked and like VK, but God are the Japanese ban-gyaru annoying and ill-mannered ^^;
