>>798844>new Lily Chou Chou>its just some J-Pop group with slight influences from more interesting music to fake legitimacythink you missed the point there ladthe closest thing we have to a new Lily Chou Chou is Ichiko Aoba
>>798885Too harsh anon. I've been to a couple of YSM's shows and everything between their music, image and performance emanate Lily spirit. The music may have more pop influence, but for what it's worth, Lily was a pop star too.
>>797720Noice. I was searching for that one. Much appreciated
what are some of your favorites of the 2010s?
Anyone know if there is a download for Bad Genius somewhere out there? I heard good review about it. Been hearing good review about it.
>>798925Lily was not a pop star, Slayu was a nobody before it, and her songs were more alternative accidental pop. She wasn't some girl group shoved together by executives to sell merchandise, and her songs weren't written by an advertising board.
>>801150Personal Favorite Japanese films of the 2010sBride For Rip Van WinkleWorld of KanakoChang Oks LetterShin GodzillaLife Father Like SonConfession Destruction BabiesTamako in MoratoriumStill The WaterIf you're curious Kinema Junpo (the most respected film site/magazine in Japan) puts out a top 10 every year, and they're usually greathttp://japanesefilmfestival.net/2017/2017-kinema-junpo-best-10-films-individual-awards/
>>801379Please don't get upset anon. Yanamyu are idols with all the good and bad that comes with it, but as someone who's been into idols since before AALCC was even released I can tell you they are definite outliers and phenomenally Ether-like. I don't care to convince you to like them, but don't hate them on principle.
>>801555Would it be inaccurate to say that visual kei is sort of the male equivalent of idol groups? I mean, there are boy bands, sure, but they don't seem to engender the same kind of fanaticism that visualkei does. Assuming that it's even still around and didn't die out last decade.
I just saw Hana & Alice and its anime sequel and I need more films like them. Any reccs, frens?I have Iwai's Bride for Rip Van Wrinkle downloaded, so I'll watch it next.
>>801555I don't hate idol groups, Maison Book Girl put out a great album this year, but the idol group you've linked is just pseudo art music shoved down the throat of pop music to convince idiots that they have some sort of taste for listening to it.
>>801865Visual Kei is still around, though Id say idol groups are quite different, less focus on theatrics and the music itself, more social media and gossip focused
What happened to the old thread? Did /t/ get raided again or did it actually die?Anyway I'm still looking for Tora-san movies if anyone's got some to share.
easiest way for ratio on avistaz? what should I get to do that?
>>802109Just leave your torrent always seeding when your computer is on, you'll rack up bonus points fast, I think I survived mostly on those.
>>801865I remember somebody, a very long time ago, on /mu/, linked me to an article interview with some high-up visual kei label owner. He was saying how the whole thing is basically an incredibly intricate business scheme, how all the bands are under contracts and are made up of dropouts and criminal youths.
>>803713yay I found it!http://www.hellodamage.com/top/2010/03/01/interview-with-an-ex-visual-kei-record-executive/
>>798885>Ichiko Aoba>check her out>this pops upwhat a pleasant surprisehttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bMWRYu4G8vQ
>>804513ichiko aoba is GOAT, she even has a great Nujabes coverhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mIM6_E2tycYshit quality, still waiting for a nice version
>>802072I'm pretty sure it's just a meme post based on that nigh-immortal thread.
>>802072Died a natural death; hit the bump limit and expired soon afterwards.
Do all three Daimajin movies exist in 1080p? Anyone have them in that?
Anyone got some Takeshi Kitano movies?

>>805935Just watch Dainipponjin instead.
Happy New Year, Lily thread!
>>809710one year closer to death
Has anyone seen Himizu (2001)? What did you think of it?
>>810391I thought it was dull and melodramatic. The manga is quite good if you haven't read it.
>>810391I had read the manga before watching and maybe because of that I didn't really like it as much since it was very different and I liked the manga. As the post above mentioned it is more melodramatic compared to the manga.
I really liked the movie and manga Solanin, hope you guys like it too if you ever give it a tryAs always, the manga was better, but Aoi Miyazaki is just too cute in the movie!
Is it time to let the Lily Chou Chou thread die? Page 9, and not really a lot of actual discussion as of late.
>>813201No, that's how it's always been and it's fine like that. There are things to look forward to together in 2018.
Ah, the Lily thread. Pleasure to stumble upon this once again. I hope you all are having pleasant lives.
