Eternal Melody: Yoshiki Fanlisting!

This has been up for a while. I was just lazy to make a post about it. But anyway,  I've re-opened the fanlisting for Hayashi Yoshiki or simply Yoshiki of the J-rock band, X Japan! If you love J-rock, you definitely know the Godfather of Japanese Visual Kei movement.


Re-opened, for those confused, means that someone used to own and manage this particular fanlisting before but then, later on, closed down, for unknown reasons. I sent a request to had another fanlisting made for Yoshiki and it was approved. Of course, I've joined the previous fanlisting, but unfortunately, I do not know the owner and I have no idea of whatever happened to the previous fanlisting, so this fanlisting has to start again from zero.

On to the fanlisting, here's a short intro on Yoshiki:

Hayashi Yoshiki is a musician, a song writer and a producer. He's mostly known as the drummer, pianist and leader of the popular visual kei band, X JAPAN. He also founded his own independent label called Extasy Records. Yoshiki and Toshi, the vocalist of X Japan founded the band when they were in high school, back in 1982. Five years after, they auditioned for CBS Sony that landed then a recording contract and their fist album, Vanishing Vision. 10 years after, in 1997, the band disbanded due to Toshi deciding to leave the band. Yoshiki did solo projects after this and continued his career as a classical musician and a producer. And then, they reunited again after 10 years with a huge 10 year reunion concert and the announcement that they're coming back and heading out for an international tour with a world-wide vision with them.

If you're a fan, please consider joining!

Enthusiast 3.1.5

I've finally converted my entire collective to Enthusiast 3.1.5! And by entire collective, I meant 100% of it is converted. Aside from the fact that I haven't had the time to do so these past few months, even if I did, I've been lazy about it and just chose to watch random anime instead. XD

I've tried around Enthusiast 3 from another subdomain before finally moving everything. So you might've noticed a few errors here and there within a few specific fanlistings within this collective, that's all due to the migration to 3.1.5. Converting this entire collective to enthusiast was tedious. For some reason, the Enth 2 to Enth 3 upgrade script only worked at 2 of my fanslitings and didn't for the other 5, so I had to manually edit them though the database. Re-uploading each fanlisting's affiliates too is mega tedious. But, I'm glad it's all over~ x3

While at it, I've also updated GPKISM's discography at Lunatic Symphony.

About Yoshiki


Hayashi Yoshiki is a musician, a song writter and producer. He's mostly known as the drummer, pianist and leader of the popular visual kei band, X JAPAN. He also founded his own independent label called Extasy Records.

Yoshiki's instruments are Kawai Crystal II Glad Grand Piano CR-40A and Tama Drums, Zildjian cymbals, and Evans drumheads. He's also an endorser for the drum equipments and has his own signature model of drumsticks by Tama.

X Japan

Yoshiki is the drummer, pianist and also the leader of X Japan. He and Toshi (vocalist) started X Japan in 1982 when they were in highschool. On December 1987, they auditioned for CBS Sony which ended then, with a recording contract and their first album, Vanishing Vision. They're second album Blue Blood followed 2 years after. After Sony, they moved to a Atlantic Records and Art of Life was released, followed by their third album, Dahlia, in which, in my opinion was the best album of all. In 1997, Toshi decided to leave the band and X Japan was disbanded. After 10 years (2007), they reunited again and did reunion concerts.

Solo

Before X Japan was disbanded, Yoshiki already did some solo projects. He was collaborating with other artists and does orchestral arrangements. He released an orchestral version of X Japan's songs and called it Eternal Melody (that's where I got this site's name).

Ryuujin-sama to Oyome-sama

There are no new members this update. =(

Either way, I've added one more one-shot manga in Ohmi Tomu-sensei's work lists called, "Ryuujin-sama to Oyome-sama". It's about a dragon god who took a human girl as his bride. It's a pretty cute story so I recommend that you read it! Aerandria has it available for scans.

Silent Plug Clean Up

I've been cleaning up dead links – deleted dead affiliate links and PermaPlug sites. So there are several free PermaPlug spaces. At the same time, I've added a new affiliate and a new site under PermaPlug. :)

Clean Up

I've cleaned up dead sites/fanlistings and updated the affiliate links. I've also updated a few stuff in Ohmi Tomu-sensei's page – added her new one-shot series. I'm also thinking of doing a story summary for each of her mangas but that will take a while. I'll add it as a future project – another one of those "someday" projects I had.

D

D is a dhamphir - born of a vampire father and a human mother. He is well known for his skills but people despise him for his unusual lineage.

D's only known weakness is his sun-sickness (some severe type of sun-stroke) that only occurs once every 5 years. Personality-wise, D is a bit of a stoic character and often avoids chit-chat as much as possible. D has a symbiote Left Hand, unlike him, is a bit of a talkative character. The left hand as the ability to suck in massive amounts of matter – earth, fire, wind, water – and is able to turn their energy into life force. D is often seen riding a cybernetic horse with a mysterious blue pendant hanging around his neck.
