XJapan is actually the founders of Visual Kei - a stereotypical look for bands, where they dress flamboyantly with bright and big clothes and hair during their concerts. They're not dressing up like this because it was cool 2 years ago, rather it's something that gives them identity. Ever since the reunion though, they started dressing a little bit more casual. I kinda expected Sick's reaction that they're just another wanna-be *insert typical US rock star* - it's the typical reaction of people who only thinks that our country's culture is the only culture the world should treat as "standard". If they were 2-years late in fashion, then why does half of the fashion industry hail Japan as the best venue in Asia in terms of fashion?
Anyways, I hope they have a live TOUR here this summer 2011! I'll be super happy if they decide to play here in Denver!
