I'm beginning to wonder if that person with the Kermit the Frog icon on Kink Bingo has a job or, indeed, any kind of life. I think she posts a bingo every other day, and she's up to her 10th card. O_O Geez, and I thought I was writing a lot.

Speaking of writing, question relating to a fic idea of mine for people who've been around the GazettE fandom for awhile - have they ever done anything with Nico Nico? I don't think they ever had a regular webcast along the lines of Alice Nine Channel, but have they done promos on there, aired concerts with the band taping an introduction for it, etc?

And here, have a Random Hot Kai Pic, just for the heck of it:

The last thing I can think of(and only thing I've been around for) was the special J-MELO interview+live around the Toxic release date that was aired initially on NHK/NHK World but was then repeated on Nico Nico. There was no interaction between the band and the audience, though. (It wasn't like the BORN or AND channels, or things of that nature). Hope that helps a bit~

Yep, I saw the J-MELO! That was for them getting some sort of award for Most Requested Band on Japanese Radio or somesuch, as I recall. I wonder why they never did anything like other bands do in regard to a regular webcast? Maybe because they became So Big That They Don't Have To Publicize Themselves All The Time before streaming video became commonplace?

I do wish they'd participate in the Visual Battle Royale, though. Specifically, have Aoi do it. That could have hilarious results.

Sorry for the late reply, it's been crazy.

I'm pretty sure that's exactly what happened~ That and they've always come off as more of a "private" band that only shows those kinds of videos to GFC/Heresy. *shrugs*

...what is this Visual battle royale? Sounds interesting~

Visual Battle Royale is a competition between representatives of several PSC bands that's done over NicoNico. So far, they've had two of them, in the middle of the summer. Usually, it involves Alice Nine and some of their kohei bands - D=OUT, SCREW and SuG. BORN didn't participate this time around, and Kra and GazettE have never participated. Basically, they have to do wacky stunt s and rack up points, and the winner band is supposed to get their own show on NicoNico. (Except they fix it so Alice Nine always wins. XD With the first one, SuG supposedly won, so they had to send one of their members onto Alice Nine channel to do even more wacky stunts. He folded. XD)

Given that they did the same thing last year? I'm going to say no, and it's really quite irritating. How good can so many mass-produced fics be, anyway?

I have to say no to your other question as well - I think the closest thing they've done was the radio shows, but even they've stopped now and they weren't broadcast with any video. :(

Exactly what I was thinking - there's no quality in anything churned out just for quantity. (Which is why I don't do NaNoWriMo). Plus, the person is just slapping together pic and icon spams that seem to not even meet the prompts. "Breathplay: Icons of near-kisses, breathing each other in." HUH?

Seriously, what do you gain by winning every award the challenge has to offer? Just a bunch of graphics, which are too NWS for anyone to put in their journals anyway. The point is to have fun and challenge yourself, not to stack up fanworks like plates.

Thanks for the info on the other! Kind of a shame they stopped the radio shows, from what I heard they got pretty cracky - especially Aoi's. (No surprise there).

Seriously??? How does that even... Don't the mods ever check these things? Still, it makes me feel a little more confident about not getting chased out for my own efforts. XD

I actually hate the banners. They're so ugly! XD I do want to complete a bingo, just because, but it's more a way of inspiring me to write than to get accolades.

*nods* I think Aoi spent a lot of time in his tormenting Sakai? And, of course, there was dear Angerina...

I had actually been concerned that my interpretation of Mirrors/Doubles was too liberal, but . . . yeah, compared to that, it was exactly on-point.

I think the icons and banners should be arty black-and-white closeups of something like a hand with a cuff around the wrist or a riding crop on a pillow. Gets the point across, but is still tasteful and attractive. Or maybe they should just supply a template where you can use an appropriate image from your own fandom. *eyes all the orgasm faces in Ibitsu*

I did a bingo just to be able to say I did a bingo. (And to get a second card, because, from what I understand, there's writing challenges during Amnesty that you can use unwritten squares for).

As far as I know and am aware of (I've listened to Gaze since about 2003-4 lol) they haven't done anything like what A9 do on a regular basis. Aoi and Ruki were on some show with Jealkb, but it was pretty uneventful, for they mostly sat and talked about singles and concerts. Then they did some stuff with Kagrra, once, when some older lady interviewed them together. But nothing like game shows or tossing stuff around, sadly. :'D They were on Heyx3 during the FitB era, but they mostly sat and talked even then.
The stuff they've done at Club Adios is probably the closest they get to NicoNico... Uruha and Ruki took Polaroids and Uruha and Kai made business cards. Other than that it's mostly radio shows where they go nuts, because no one can see them do that obviously. :'''D In that sense they are pretty boring, because there's no funny stuff going on. But thank dog we have Aoi and his tweets. They are lulzy as heck. :''D

Thanks! I remember seeing the Uruha and Kai Club Adios fansubbed, probably from uruai - I remember it mostly because of Kai describing himself as "the masochist drummer." I have him wielding the flogger in Kink Bingo anyway. XD (Hey, if the staff is afraid of him . . .)

I think it's kind of a shame that they don't do something like Alice Nine Channel, at least on an occasional basis. Aoi would SO be up for that crazy stuff.
