Fuck Yeah! Tanuki!

I AM TANUKI MISTRESS.

The blog was originally made for translating the sex threads of visualtanuki for the lolz. I've branched out a little. However, I'm still not here for bangya-related wank. Please direct any comments about fans/bangya to fuckyeahbangya.

Pretty much all of the info about specific band guys on this blog is a rumor. That means that it is up to you to decide whether or not you believe it is true.

Not to be answering any questions phrased as "Is there anything on ______?" Find a specific question to ask or I will delete your request immediately. I will sometimes answer specific requests for information from tanuki and I will answer some general questions about the Japanese music industry/bandomen in general.

Want to email something long?
tanukimistress [@] gmail.com

(I'm always happy for personal anecdotes about bandomen or any other gossip you come across, on tanuki or otherwise. Feel free to send me an email or submit to the blog.)

Please use the search function below before asking me any questions about specific band translations. You can search by band name or member name. Please also check the tag page and the "useful tags" list below.

If you have any questions, make sure you read the FAQ before you send them to me. Your question may have already been answered. A thousand times.

Are there any rumors or talk in general about Riku (ex. Phantasmagoria)? Like any new band activity or has he just dropped off the face of the planet? lol
fuckyeahtanuki fuckyeahtanuki Said:

I think he actually just has dropped off the face of the planet, lol. Some googling showed me that his twitter hasn’t been updated since April, and the most recent tanuki thread on him features some girl saying that she won’t believe Riku quit music until he announces it himself (apparently he hasn’t) and another girl saying he still mails/contacts her sometimes, so it seems he’s still alive, at least. Maybe.

I always see girls saying how they lost their virginity in highschool, or when they were like 15/16 years old to bandomen. It's been bothering me for a while now, do people in japan really loose their virginity early, or some bandoman have a fetish on young girls... Maybe they're just rumors, but there are so many of them (really young girls having sex w/ bandoman). Do you know something about it to share with us?? ps: girls can do whatever they want with their bodies!
fuckyeahtanuki fuckyeahtanuki Said:

Isn’t it like…pretty average for girls to lose their virginity in their teenage years?

Basically everyone in Japan has at least heard of X JAPAN. If you mention them to someone they usually go like, 'Yeah, I'm aware of them.' Bands like Dir en grey aren't this popular in Japan, just within their own scene.

Mistress there is some short of scandal about Toya (GOTCHAROCKA) because of come ''private content'' pictures and stuff with a girl. He has said that she is only a friend in his twitter, but I can't find any of that content, could you, please?

fuckyeahtanuki:

I found it, but honestly none of it seems to be that interesting? It’s mostly just screencaps of her Instagram (that she keeps changing the name of) in which she does stupid shit like post pictures of shirts he’s bought (she calls him “PAPA,” wtf I’m so disturbed) that he’s later seen wearing and posting pictures from the second floor of O-EAST during a live, etc. It’s all blatant stupidity but it’s not super scandalous. She’s probably deleted it by now, but honestly I don’t have the wherewithal to save all the screencaps because the whole thing is incredibly stupid.

There’s also an older screencap of a conversation with Toya in which he says he “decided when he started bands that he was going to marry a girl who follows him until the end” or something equally asinine and creepy. It’s actually unrelated to this current scandal, but I might post that convo later, actually. XD

I read this thread so this is just what i remember off the top of my head, but:

Apparently when one of Toya’s tsunagari registered on Instagram, this account came up linked to the email address ‘Toya’ had been using. Leading her and everyone else to believe this woman is actually the one sending the mails and she and Toya are using money/presents together and deceiving his tsunagari. Blah blah shit exploded… As soon as this happened Toya didn’t update his twitter for like a week or sth and then wrote a blog addressing it but didn’t really deny much except that he’s not married to her.

A very very indie(so probably not important) friend of mine, Haru, came across your Tumblr. He speaks English. XD now he said he's scared to do anything!
fuckyeahtanuki fuckyeahtanuki Said:

He should probably have been afraid already, unless he had no idea what tanuki was,

Oh my god i am laughing so hard i met today a crazy chick who claimed GACKT and Atsushi Sakurai had sex with each other 
fuckyeahtanuki fuckyeahtanuki Said:

Do they even hang out together?

Asker Anonymous Asks:
apparently subaru said he's half american.. wasn't it half spanish?
fuckyeahtanuki fuckyeahtanuki Said:

I think what we eventually decided was that he’s half American with his American parent being of Spanish ancestry. Because you realize “Half American” isn’t really a thing, right? Not unless you have a Native American parent.

Did en grey vs x japan vs larc en ciel which band is more popular than which?
fuckyeahtanuki fuckyeahtanuki Said:

Well Dir en grey is definitely the least popular of the three. I’d hesitate to rank X JAPAN and L’Arc for a lot of reasons, which I’m too lazy to get into here. Let’s just say they’re both quite comparatively popular and leave it at that.

Asker Anonymous Asks:
; o; not really mistress I was just suggesting & yeah I get you by being ambivalent. It's a huge step for them and maybe it'll boost their popularity more! But who knows. Oh, you rarely post anything now. Why is that ?
fuckyeahtanuki fuckyeahtanuki Said:

I’m not sure most VK bands’ overseas performances are a “huge” step for them. The vast majority of them perform in tiny venues to small groups of people who were already their fans. Most bands seem to want to go overseas just to say that they did and have pretty much zero PR or strategy and gain nothing from it except to make their fans in that country happy if they happen close enough to the travel to the city in question.

As to not posting much, it’s a mixture of things. When I started the blog, I was catching everyone up on YEARS worth of tanuki info, since most of the previous tanuki blogs didn’t really post all that much content. Second, while answering everyone’s questions was amusing at first, most of it just starts to get tedious after awhile because it’s usually just the same old BS. Third, my interest in VK has pretty much waned to undetectable levels by this point. I’m continuing this blog purely on fumes by this point, and the amount of effort I’m willing to put into it now is quite negligible. Just the way the cookie crumbles, I suppose.

; o; mistress did you know Mejibray or should I say Mejigay is having their first overseas in Shanghai ,China. What are your thoughts on that?
fuckyeahtanuki fuckyeahtanuki Said:

Am I supposed to have any thoughts on that? I’m pretty ambivalent, tbh.
