If I’m ranting I’m sorry but….
I’m on the late train apparently for Supernova since I’ve been off of social media for an array of reasons that I won’t even go into but ANYWAYS..
I just have a few thoughts about us Number Sixes and what it truly means to be a fan of Alice Nine. There is no ‘official code’ nor is ‘Number Six’ even used in Japan to even call fanclub members or fans in general.
Having differing opinions about songs and albums is normal. Everyone has that one song they absolutely adore and could listen to until the end of time and there are just some songs that we don’t care for and skip every time we have it come up on shuffle. There will be the song you know all the lyrics to and that one song you sing in the shower and that other song that’s always stuck in your head no matter what.
Opinions are great and dandy. But not everyone thinks the same about certain songs. Some people remember the old days and think to themselves ‘man I wish Alice Nine would go back to the Zekkeishoku days’ or ‘I really think their new direction is lacking.’ These are all human responses.
When I went to the theater event in Saitama last month, I hadn’t gone to the Valentine’s day live. I didn’t know what ANY of the new songs on the album sounded like and I was really pumped to hear them. As I sat in the dark theater and the movie came up on the screen, I watched the graphics and music videos and was shocked to hear some songs that I really really liked from them and others that I liked sorta but not as much as others. To be honest, I love Kaisen Zenya, but if I listen to it too much it really annoys me.
That could be someone’s favorite song!
…but I’m not telling anyone that they shouldn’t hate Kaisen Zenya. Or that it isn’t a great song. Maybe it’s not to my liking compared to other people. These thoughts are totally normal and aren’t attacking anyone.
Yet, I’ve heard and seen some negativity flying around in the fandom and I’d like to remind all of us that when it comes down to it we all really love this band and we are proud of them no matter what direction they’re going in because at some point in time, we all fell in love with their songs.
Please don’t forget that attacking other fans isn’t really cool and it hurts their feelings and it may cause them to fall out of the fandom because of other fans. I’d like to think that we’re really accepting guys, and I really would hate to think what Alice Nine would think if they knew some fans were hurt by other fans over musical direction, song quality and overall personal taste in terms of their music.
So let’s try and respect each other and continue being awesome.
Be as one.
Just going to vent a little…
How can someone fall asleep right after a major disagreement with their boyfriend/girlfriend/other? Like HOW?
How can people act as if they aren’t as bothered.
It baffles me.
Here I am laying awake and I want to say so much more but no, boyfriend is asleep as if we weren’t having a disagreement at all. I get it, he worked today for a long time but seriously?????
