AnCafe + Lc5

What… What’s going on?

http://www.lc5.jp


Miku, what are you doing? You’re supposed to look like this:


And sing songs about love and friendship and happiness. Where did this unexpected darkness (and almost unnerving sexiness) appear from?!

In all seriousness though, I’m really excited for Lc5.

For the uninitiated, AnCafe are (were?) an oshare-kei jrock band, who make music like this.


Very cute, upbeat and happy. They’re probably the biggest oshare-kei band around, or at least they certainly were back in 2007. (Which I now realise is 3 years ago. D:) They’ve been my fave band for about 5 years now. I have all their releases, photobooks and a room full of their posters.
But earlier this year they announced they were going on ‘hiatus’. Which is jrock speak for ‘breaking up’. (Unless you’re Kisaki.)

But the fans believed, and we waited. And now, the vocalist of AnCafe has popped up on the OP of brand new visual-kei band Lc5! OMFG! Miku seems to have turned vk overnight!
It’s actually pretty surreal, because Miku’s love for all things cute and happy is no secret.

Anyway, I’m very excited just to see the band members doing stuff. I mean, when Bou left AnCafe back in ’07, and dropped off the face of the earth, music-wise, the fandom went insane. I was practically suicidal. (I cannot exaggerate how much of a Bou stan I used to be. Yes, it was pathetic, but also amazingly fun. I still obsess over him to this day.) So, just to know I’ll be able to follow Miku whatever he does, makes my heart rest a little easier. Is that weird? I can already guarantee I’ll buy anything Lc5 release. It’s not about the band, I just want to support Miku.

Bassist Kanon is currently designing a mobile game, I believe, and drummer Teruki and keyboardist Yuuki are supporting another band…
I found out from a friend that Miku is no longer following Kanon or Teruki on twitter. I really hope they haven’t all fallen out. I can deal without AnCafe, but if the boys are no longer friends, I’ll be really upset. (Everytime Teruki mentions Bou in his blog, I can’t help but smile. Everlasting friendship ftw.)
But, it’s pretty well-known that Miku has been sick, tired and depressed since last year. If you could see him in concert, he looked exhausted. When I think of that, I want Miku to be happy. If experimenting with musical styles provides that, I’m all for it. Of course I’d be upset if they disbanded, AnCafe have been a major part of my life for 5 years. But as long as I can support them, I will.
It seems so unlikely that they’ll get back together, at least with the current lineup. On the other hand, I’ll support them no matter what they do.

Trying to stay positive…

Fangirls are scary and delusional, but our love can’t be beaten.

btw, the other members of the band are:

Yumeji (Gt) – ex. MELLO (and totally hot!)
Sato (Ba) – ex. MELLO
Reo (Gt) – ex. Guy’s Family
Aki (Dr) – ex. Ninjaman Japan

I recognized all but Aki.

      I agree that he looks great! I read on his blog that he dyed his hair dark to try to get a new job. I wonder what happened to that.
      Can’t wait to hear what they release.
