I know some names have been released like the guys from DEG and The Gazette but what about other bands/artists? What have you heard is rumored to be the “real” names of bandomens?
Wasn’t there a bandman that’s really name was like George or something?
Kiryuuin Shou = Ichirou Shou
Kyan Yutaka = Saito Yutaka
Utahiroba Jun = Takayama Jun
for my beautiful Kenji idk but ik he got the name Darvish from a baseball player he likes
Did we ever get to know Kyo’s name thou?
isnt it like nishimura tooru?
all bandmen are “bobert” until proven otherwise
There was a rumor on Mistress Tanuki’s Tumblr account (RIP that account) about Subaru’s real name being George but chose Subaru cuz well, it’s Japanese and cooler 8)
Hinata = Mahiko Otsu
Idk if this is common knowledge already butttt
Kisakis rumored real name is Tadashi Matsuura
it is, he is always credited as his full name in album credits (Tadashi “Kisaki” Matsuura)
Not rumored, but Yo-shiT (ex-xTRiPx) is Yoshito Abe and Ryohei (ex-CLOWD) is Ryohei Sawaguchi. A surprising number of vk (and former-vk) bandmen are composers/arrangers/lyricists for anisong artists and idols, and while many retain their monikers, there are some who don’t mind their actual full names, because why not?
Mentioning Yo-shiT (ex-xTRiPx) makes me think about his 2 brothers : Masato Abe (Belle) and Naoto Abe (D=OUT).
