This photo was taken during Novarock Festival on June 16th 2013 during a signing session with Shinya and Toshiya of Dir en grey.

We would like to point out about that flag that Shinya is signing.
That flag is called “kyokojitsu ki” and its known outside Japan as the “Rising sun flag”.
That flag was used by the Japanese Army and the Japanese Navy during the Pacific War from 1943 to 1945.
This flag is associated with the Japanese imperialism and nationalism, as its often shown during nationalist gathering and events in Japan from the extreme right-wing groups.
The extreme right-wing groups are Japanese political parties claiming the Japan independency and their hatred for “gaijin” (foreigners).
So its a flag that says “Japan is the best country in the world and we will kill all the non-Japanese people”.
This flag is very offensive to all those countries that were attacked by Japan during WWII. Its a flag that represents the world war and all the crimes the Japanese Army committed from 1938 to 1945.
Japanese people are not proud about it and they are very ashamed of it and, since its recognized by the UN as a war flag, it cannot be displayed or used during world sports events such as Olympic Games, baseball games or football games.
Its like showing a Nazi flag in Germany.
Would you ask a German band you claim to support to sign a Nazi flag?
Now that you know about this, do you feel proud about yourself?
If you are going to ask some Japanese rockers to sign their country flag, at least ask them to sign the regular and recognized country flag (Hinomaru).
This photo gave us cancer.
like everything that’s from Japan.
We are proud (no, not really actually) to introduce you….
Thanks to all our supporters for all the links you sent us about this person. We wouldn’t have noticed her without you, so a big thanks from the staff of SJRG.
This girl fits the Ultimate Stupid J-Rock Girl profile to officially be a “jtard”.
“Konnichiwa, YunYun ~ ユンユン desu.
Also stay tuned. A big update incoming…and this time, our beloved fanboys will be included.
WINGS FOR LIBERTY: Hey guys! Today I’d like to introduce to BatAAr, the world first and... -
Hey guys! Today I’d like to introduce to BatAAr, the world first and only Art Metal band :) You should really check them out if you’re into heavier music, I guarantee you’ll love them. The members are down to earth and super close to their fans
(and hot), they really deserve all our love!
One of the worst bands in Europe.
It must be easy to gain popularity when you’re a Kaoru wannabe and you show up at Dir en grey concerts to promote yourself rather than appreciate the band.

carrymywords asked: Do you seriously think that just because it's there, it gives you the right to ridicule her? She asked nicely, maybe you should stop being jerks. Unfollowing.
arineko asked: How exactly does this girl qualify for being a "stupid Jrock girl" other than wearing a Dir en grey T and being female? Please also note that Neko Nation is not actually an "anime con" and is infact one of the only places in Australia where you can go out to listen to Jrock and Visual Key music.
Its “Visual kei”, not “Visual Key”. Kei is from 系, “style”.
If you cannot recognize how she qualifies as a Stupid J-Rock Girl you are on the wrong blog.
kyoru asked: Can you please take down the photo you reblogged off me?
We are not the ones who posted the picture publicly on the internet and tagging it in a major tag.
Learn how Tumblr works.
Post Neko Nation photos. Wore my Kyo shirt coz it was his birthday :D
