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The blog was originally made for translating the sex threads of visualtanuki for the lolz.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.

To Ice anon: ummm I don't know, have you seen him in real life without make up? I have and I think a lot of what we see in pics are due to his make up, photoshop, or camera360. And just like we do, they only upload pics in which they think they look good... By they here I mean VK bandmen. Anyway I'll see Ice again, I'll be on the lookout. Hahahah.

If memory serves me right Sakito of Nightmare was a host. He talked about it in a rather old interview and he was super embarrassed about admitting it.

I found a Japanese message board that seems to confirm this idea. They said that Yomi, Sakito, and Ruka all used to be hosts for a time but that Yomi quit after like a month because he got a stomach ulcer. Without seeing original sources (like the interview you mentioned) I can’t say for sure if it’s true, but that’s what I read.

[Uhm. No. The interview in question wasn’t an interview, it was a TV appearance on HEYHEYHEY. They were asked about their part-time jobs back in the day and Yomi worked as a pizza delivery guy, Ruka was a door-to-door salesman. Sakito said he couldn’t talk about his job, that was all. Don’t go quoting ~old interviews~ when you can’t provide the source of said interviews. The only rumor I’m aware of that originated from Japanese forums is the one that Sakito used to work as a receptionist at a love hotel for a while. I have also never heard my Japanese friends mention such a rumor in the 12+ years I’ve been following that band. I wouldn’t put it past Yomi, but Sakito, who is probably the most awkward creature on the planet and according to himself has never even dated? LOL RIGHT]

LOL, well just because someone would be a bad host doesn’t preclude them from being a host (trust me, I’ve met my share of bad hosts XD). However, for any of you who might be interested in this info.

Is a period so much to ask for, hater? XD

Is that Arimura, ne?

(a) Who can tell anything by this picture? It’s a blurred photo of the back of someone’s head?
(b) Who cares either way? It’s a blurred photo of the back of someone’s head?

Hello,I was browsing your site that is fun especially the older groups. And I came across Luna sea and I did a very little research on them, I went to see the twitter account lilochanel and it appears to be separated from Inoran, she talks about "divorce" (my English is bad, sorry) ! Do you have any additional information or have I understood backwards ?? Thx
fuckyeahtanuki fuckyeahtanuki Said:

I dunno. XD tbh, I’ve never even bothered looking at this girl’s twitter. All the info about her and Inoran has been posted by other readers of this blog. With that in mind, do any of said readers want to let me know what’s gone down?

Hello~ very random but, do you know if any bandmen from major bands (like Gazette, Nightmare, An Cafe etc) have been hosts before?
fuckyeahtanuki fuckyeahtanuki Said:

Not that I know of. The only bands of any notoriety that I know of with members who were hosts are Bergerac (Tatsuha was a host concurrently with doing the band, somewhere in Yokohama if I remember correctly. It became a big fuss on tanuki and the rumor is that that issue had a lot to do with their subsequent disbandment) and Lolita23q (Sou, the former vocalist, became a host, but I don’t think it was until after he quit the band).

Hey Mistress, do you know if Tanuki has said anything on Black Gene For the Next Scene's Ice having had plastic surgery? It might be stupid or just me, but in their newer pics it seems like he's got a rounder face/ his chin looks softer. (His nose always looked a bit too narrow to be natural, but his face shape just looks weird to me.)
fuckyeahtanuki fuckyeahtanuki Said:

Someone on a recent thread asked this same question, but the only response they got was, “If he did, it was to make his face smaller.” So, uh…sounds like fans don’t know either way.
