[ mood | tired ]

Title: And Then I Crossed The Sanzu River {Dedicated to Isshi of Kagrra,}
Authoress: himenojigoku
Chapters: One-shot
Rating: M
Pairing: None
Genre: Supernatural,Lament,Introspective,Tragedy
Warnings: Isshi’s Death, Demon marking, un-beta-ed
Summary: And it was seven days after. After he watched his family and friends cry over him, after he watched the monks pray over him, after they scattered his ashes near the cherry blossom trees, that he appeared at the Sanzu River.
Comments: I don’t know, but for some reason I just needed to write this. No one has to read it but, I wanted to share. No, I’m not speculating how he died or anything. I’m writing what I think happened in the After Life and it turned out weirder than I thought. :P It’s based on what little I know of Buddhist/Shinto religion, Japanese folklore/mythology and what I googled on Sanzu River. Hopefully I’m right and he’s happy in the afterlife :) Plus it’s a supernatural story, lot’s of unbelievable stuff happens. On a side note, listen to Jigoku Shoujo OSTs^^

He was exhausted to say the least.Collapse )

Thank you Isshi! :’) You were a beautiful human being and your music lives on in the hearts of many!

I finished my cover everyone! :D

Kagrra, Shanghai One-man Live, August 7th at TongLeFang, Shanghai China [29 Oct 2010|06:20pm]

It was the first time that Kagrra, performed in Shanghai, and, of course, it was their first one-man live in China. I wasn't expecting a large number of die-hard fans waiting for Kagrra, before the live; however, it turned out that I was totally wrong. Although it was a hot summer day, as mentioned in the press note previously, there was already a long line waiting outside the live house a few hours before the opening. The fans' costumes caught my eye. Some were wearing a Yukata with traditional Japanese patterns, while some were in a Qi Pao, a traditional mandarin gown. Both shared the common point of overflowing Oriental beauty.

The live house seemed like a secret room under a bar. Walking down stairs that descended through a dark hallway, I found the stage right in front of standing seats. Fans ran into the house to find the best place for themselves to watch the show. Girls standing in the first row were so close to the stage that they even could touch the band members. It was quite a small live house, and the audience quickly filled the venue. The stage setting was simple and compact, without any decorations.

Report: Kagrra, 10th Anniversary -Hyakki Yako- Dai 2 dan "Kiho" [16 Jul 2010|08:19pm]

Culmination of 10 Year Career and First Step into the Future
'Kagrra, 10th Anniversary -百鬼夜行- 第二弾 「鬼咆」

June 3rd is the day that Kagrra was formed, and when they held their first concert at Takadanobaba AREA. This year marks their 10th anniversary from that important date. On this special date, Kagrra celebrated their 10th anniversary since forming the band by holding a concert at Shibuya O-EAST.

On June 3rd, O-EAST was packed with fans wanting to congratulate the 10th anniversary of Kagrra. There were not only Japanese fans but fans from abroad as well. It is often said that 'music overcomes borders'. Fans were excited to see those words put into practice.

The lights inside the hall dimmed. The title of the concert appeared onto the stage curtains. Beyond those curtains, a faint ray of light could be seen. As the curtains parted, the audience saw that light shining straight down toward Isshi, who was sitting on a chair. He was looking at a book held in his hand. He began to recite.

SHINJUKU MARUI ONE - Mamechiyo Modern [07 Jul 2010|07:31pm]

Incorporating traditional Japanese designs into every day fashion is surely not easy and even Japanese can't do it just like that.
Therefore, maybe this is interesting for fans of Kagrra,'s Fashion, because the store Mamchiyo Modern is aiming to do exactly that.

Maybe you can get some ideas, too!
Please feel free to read the article below and see if that's something for you as well. ^^

Mamechiyo Modern

The store aims to bring back the kimono as an everyday item. It provides
an assortment of modern kimono that will perfectly match modern day
life and your personal preferences. The brand encourages girls who want
to enjoy kimono and fashion but are a bit shy to say so. Mamechiyo
Modern hopes to provide the entryway into a life with kimono.

Episode 167: Has Kagrra,'s Akiya really met the legendary kappa?

Hello everyone(^_^)v This is kanako.
The other day I went to see Kagrra, at a concert.

It had been three months since the last time I saw them at their 10th anniversary live.
It was a very, very good performance. You will find all of it in the live report.

Also, the band members now seem to be look forward to their first summer tour in Japan in four years. They said they are looking forward to it at the 10th anniversary live, already. (laughs) [Read More.....]

The year 2010 is the 10th anniversary of Kagrra,. Some might feel that 10 years is a long time, while others may find it short. For the band's members and the fans, those 10 years are filled with myriad memories and thoughts. By seeing and experiencing many different sorts of things, Kagrra, has continued to evolve. They have announced that they will hold lots of events to celebrate their anniversary year. It will provide many opportunities for the band to commemorate together with the fans. For the first event of their 10th anniversary, they held a concert at Shibuya O-WEST on March 3rd. 10 years ago, Kagrra, had held their first solo concert at the same venue (called 'ON AIR WEST' at that time).

Episode 157: Kagrra, Using Magic Foundation Makeup!? [10 Mar 2010|07:22pm]

musicJAPANplus writer Kanako went to Kagrra,'s concert in Shibuya O-WEST a few days ago!
Did you go as well? Check out her note on the coverage!

Episode 157: Kagrra, Using Magic Foundation Makeup!?

Hello everybody! This is musicJAPANplus writer Kanako! During holidays I've recently started to go on trips to lots of different places. Just the other day I went to Shimokitazawa, and I found many stylish clothes! They were all affordable too. Although it's not as famous as Shibuya and Harajuku, Shimokitazawa is a great place to shop around for fashion items. They're beginning to sell clothing for the spring season, so if you're planning to come to Japan I definitely recommend visiting Shimokitazawa! You can go there straight from Shibuya by getting on a train on the Inokashira Line!

I've been visiting various locations during weekdays too! A few days ago I went to Shibuya O-WEST. Kagrra, was going to hold their first concert since the closing night of their previous tour. 2010 happens to be the band's 10th anniversary! Check their official website to see their jam-packed schedule. 2010 is set to be another busy year for Kagrra, fans. As for their upcoming tour, Isshi made an intriguing comment. "For each performance 'something' might happen!" Diehard fans will have to see all their performances to find out what he meant!

Pressnote on V-ROCK FESTIVAL '09 - Day 2 [28 Oct 2009|08:00pm]

 The pressnote on V-ROCK FESTIVAL '09 2nd day is updated!!

Read it here!

Hello, everyone! This is musicJAPANplus writer kanako! Today was Day 2 of V-ROCK FESTIVAL '09! Yesterday after the event it had rained a bit, but today the rain stopped! It was cloudy! Never sunny! (Someone among the artists must have invited those clouds...) As was the case yesterday it was cold outside but things quickly got heated up as HANGRY&ANGRY, Aural Vampire, Kagrra, and Loveless started things off. Even though it was early in the morning the fans were all decked out in nice clothes with full makeup. Some headed to the stages to see their favorite artists, while others went to the food stands and various booths selling merchandise. The people that participated in Day 1 looked like they've gotten used to their surroundings. In addition to the performances they were enjoying other parts of the event as well!
