There's not a single song this man can't improve with a cover. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2UcrC_1ZGT0

Let's talk about our favorite artists, albums and songs from these years. So, what's your favorite Japanese singer over 50?

>>221 >>224 You guys are stupid. Citypop is more akin to jazz, funk and rock than it is to pop music.
>>226 I would still say it's predominately pop-oriented but the urban influences give out those interesting harmonies
Maybe it’s because I just recently rewatched the Sasori movies but I can’t stop listening to Meiko Kajis Music https://youtu.be/THaY9fVsjoM Other favorites might be Keiko Fuji https://youtu.be/K8nqAc3qglM Or Hako Yamasaki https://youtu.be/KLfmOHMVs48
>>219 Jun Togawa!

Retro Visual Kei anon 02/01/2022 (Tue) 14:53:19 No. 231 [Reply]
Does wapchan enjoy visual kei? >What is Visual Kei? Visual Kei is a musical movement that originated in Japan in the mid-1980s. Appearing out of Japan's punk and metal scenes, visual kei is an aesthetic, rather than a genre, pulling imagery from gothic rock, punk, shock rock, glam rock, speed metal and hair metal, often wearing elaborate costumes and flamboyant hair. The movement expanded beyond it's hair punk and glam metal roots in the 1990s to cover a vast array of different subgenres and genres, ranging from extremes such as brutal death metal to accessible genres like synthwave. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=18H2Uc9_7I0 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WNTv-tDtYvU https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gvY7zc0a-7Y https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=81-czr9Zano

Does CASCADE count? Listening to Butterfly Limited Express for the first time was an experience. It felt nice in the moment, even if everything else felt like absolute shit. although now, I can't really listen to it with the same nostalgic sense, only to pass time and act like things are fine...
>>231 I love visual kei! I saw Dir en Grey live twice over a decade ago and still get excited for all their new records despite them not really being what I would call visual kei anymore.
>>231 Since this thread is on a slow board I don't feel too bad about posting in it. I am a fan of visual kei. I've been into it since about 2011. Here is a favorite track of mine: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=27WFd8PoDBw
I enjoy Buck-Tick. I never knew there was a whole subset of J-rock that was like this.

Probably the peak of Canadian Black Metal for me.
>>244 I'd take them over blasphemy, but in my opinion, both bands mog revenge.

Any of you ever read foreign works heavily inspired by manga? I feel like with how seperated Japanese manga and western comics are these days, series that bridged the gap dont get much appreciation these days. Can you believe Ninja High School has been published continuously since 1987?
>>2 It's hard to believe Ninja High School is still fucking going, that's for sure. I used to read it as a kid and even though I liked it then, it never felt quite as good as actual manga. Now it feels like some sort of weird fossil fish that's still hanging around for some reason

>>2 I still cannot believe that no one has made a parody comparing Ninja High School to Urusei Yatsura. I mean, COME ON
>>4 NHS always wore its influences on its sleeve. I think the skunk-girl had a Captain Harlock outfit too?

old flash animation/nico video anon 12/30/2022 (Fri) 05:25:20 No. 52 [Reply]
I'm trying to find an old flash animation that used the song "言葉にできない" A japanese meme or something back at the time. It was a compilation of "fail" scenarios that constantly plays in Japanese everyday life... like dropping an entire bowl of instant soba inside the sink while trying to take the hot water out. I think there were several engrish signs examples, "you had one job" memes, and I think I remember this sleeping panda too. https://youtu.be/otYwfvmRt7M

How many of these have you watched? How many do you like?

>>6 >Breathless Eh, I preferred Le Chinoise >8 1/2 Wasn't as into it as everyone I've heard of the movie from seems to be, but that's probably just a taste thing. >Seven Samurai Love this one, not really arthouse though. >Cleo from 5 to 7 Keep trying to torrent this one but there's never any peers >Daisies Love this one. It was probably my first "arthouse" film >Le Samouraï Actually about halfway through this one, gonna finish it tonight. Loving it so far, but it may be because I'm partial to Alain Delon >Un Chien Andalou Love this one as well

>>6 M, Seven Samurai, The 400 Blows, Bicycle Thieves, La Haine, Three Colors, that's it not much ig
>>6 Nothing tbh
>>6 I have only watched Stalker yet, and I liked it. Its cinematography is great and I like its setting. But it isn't edited well and way too long. Could have liked it even more if I had not expected sci-fi but rather a philosophical film
>>18 Solaris is the more accessiblebTarkovsky film. Somewhat less philosophising more sci-fi, same kinography. You should definitley check it out if you liked Stalker.

Do you like symbiote from MARVEL comics?
>>20 The original 90s comic(s) was all over the place. Venom always shined the most in animation and games. Wait can we discuss non-Japanese stuff here?

Help how do i precisely draw reflections and refractions of an under/above water wave or surface imagery like picrel The colors and shapes of the reflections and refractions confuse me most especially with realism as concern Especially the cylindrical wave shape, reflection of objects other than the ocean floors.... seems like wild guessing so i wanna know the rightest and position maybe by math or whatever projection solution
/ic/ already told you what to do
