If I Would've Never Discovered SCANDAL Then. . .My Life Would Be Completely Different From What It Is Now.

- I Wouldn't Have Had So Many Beautiful Wallpapers For My Electronics 

- My Interest In Japan Would've Been Limited To Anime And Manga

- I'll Probably Be At A Different University ( I Specifically Picked My School Because They Offered A Jap. Language Program )

- Who Knows What My Cover Pictures On Facebook Would Look Like ? LOL

- Countless Hours I Spent Fanboying Would've Been Spent In Boredom Smile

I am the same with your third point. I found that my interest on Japan widened after I discovered Scandal. Its not just the music or anime anymore, I am now totally interested in their culture and currently am learning the language. On my list is to definitely go to Japan and go to a scandal concert there

This topic is actually in regards to your own life, not the band members' lives. Happy

-First and foremost, would not have creeped, registered, and modded for SCANDAL HEAVEN (yes, in that order) and all the things that comes with being part of SH
-My music library would have about 100 less songs
-I probably would not have dived so deep into the rock and j-rock genres. I was a listener before SCANDAL but more of a "whatever comes on the radio" kind of guy.
-Nobody famous would have acknowledged me online until last month. Thanks Mami and your "google/gurgle stomach" response~
-Would not appreciate bassists as much as I do today
-And to echo what others have said, certainly be less cultured about Japan in general

If SCANDAL had never existed in the first place, I wouldn't probably be working hard in practising with my guitar nor be so ever encouraged to learn the japanese language. Even though i've been watching anime before I found SCANDAL, I wouldn't be working so hard in learning the language.

So yeah, I wouldn't be doing anything right now if I never found SCANDAL. Though I have been a music lover, after seeing Mami and hearing the band's music I was encouraged to be as good as her and dream about being able to make music with her/the band (which is why i'm also studying Japanese so communication won't be too hard for us Happy )

(Only realising now how the band has greatly affected me and my life)

One more thing: I wouldn't be collecting CDs or Merch so hard (like looking for suppliers/shipper/etc), with that i'll also have lots of savings lol.

If Scandal never existed, idk..I would probably be into a different band. But then, most of these bands have male members, as a girl...I would probably never have the courage to go up there and join a band if it wasn't for Scandal. So yeah, I love them.

Interesting topic.

If SCANDAL never existed...

1. I would have a lesser appreciation of Japanese music and the country itself.
2. I will have more money in my bank account lol (Buying all those CDs and attending 2 HELLO WORLD concerts overseas really took a toll on my savings)
3. I will be stuck to my usual listening genre of music which is purely Alternative Rock
4. I would probably never have thought of traveling outside our country (LOL My first out-of-the-country trip was Singapore only to watch the concert, now I am looking forward in traveling other countries as well)

If SCANDAL never existed, I bet I would have another band to like, especially since Stereopony didn't last long (Back then, I was more of a Stereopony fan rather than SCANDAL, but I follow both groups).

Or I could devote myself to my favorite Johnny's groups or AKB48 (I don't follow the sister groups) since these groups have nice songs too. Too bad that people think idols = trash music. Sorry for being a bit OT there.

- I wouldn't meet my band members, so I would never play a bass. 

- I wouldn't be able to see Japan's prettiest and coolest woman (Haruna).

- I wouldn't study Japanese Language in university.

If Scandal did not exist, I would be aimlessly searching for another jrock band that fit me perfectly. After everyone from my group of friends at school fell out of the similar interest of liking kpop, I wanted to find a group that I really liked. Mainly because the music they moved onto didn't suit my taste. I had a previous connection with Scandal by stumbling upon Awanai and listening to Harukaze through Bleach for a long time.


Who knows how long I would've searched for to find the right group I like. We have groups like babymetal and one okay rock. But they were always missing something I wanted. And Scandal granted me that satisfaction of completion. So again, who knows how long I would have had to wait in order to be completely satisfied.

If SCANDAL never existed I would be a very lonely man living a very sad life in southern california after leaving my previous life and all my friends back in Peru. I pretty much owe my life to SCANDAL and Scandal Heaven!

I think that if SCANDAL had never existed, things would probably be a lot different for me. SCANDAL has helped me make a lot of changes in my life that I'm rather thankful for and I don't think I could have made those changes without SCANDAL's influence and other fans.

I really owe a lot to SCANDAL and SCANDAL's fans.

Without SCANDAL, I would have a lot less friends and I would talk to people a lot less as well. I know I'm not exactly the most talkative person but it's still more than how much I usually have to say (which is barely anything usually). I guess if you've met me at one of SCANDAL's concerts, that'll make more sense haha. But SCANDAL has introduced me to a lot of people and helped me make friends with people I probably would have been too scared to approach on my own. I'll always be thankful to SCANDAL for helping me find the courage (and ability I guess) to be able to talk to others and actually be able to make friends.

If SCANDAL never existed, I probably never would have met my girlfriend. The only reason the two of us met was because we're both fans of SCANDAL. We wouldn't have met otherwise and even if we did, we probably never would have talked to each other. So there's a second thing I'm thankful to SCANDAL for. ^.^''

Without SCANDAL, I wouldn't have found the courage to travel and I definitely wouldn't have discovered how much I actually like travelling. If it wasn't for having to travel to see SCANDAL's shows, I wouldn't have discovered how much I like travelling and exploring new places. It's actually something I really love doing and want to keep doing - SCANDAL related or not - and I really do credit SCANDAL for helping me gain the courage to travel so I could discover that little part about myself.

If SCANDAL never existed, I probably would have a bit of a rougher time getting through problems in life. There's always ways to get through problems but SCANDAL's music really helps me feel better when things are getting on the rougher side. It's nice to know a band who can actually put you in a better mood with their music.

SCANDAL never really influenced the way I feel about Japan or the way I see Japan. The interest and fascination with Japan has always been there for as long as I can remember. Even as a child, I remember having a fascination with Japan. SCANDAL did, however, help give me more motivation to stick with lessons to learn Japanese. I had tried learning Japanese before I began listening to SCANDAL but I had quickly given up on it. It was a few years after I began listening to SCANDAL that I picked it up again and grew determined to stay with it this time. It's a slow process but I'm making progress with learning Japanese~

If Scandal never existed... I could never imagine that... it's hard to.

*I would never pick up the guitar (I was sort of motivated to pick up the guitar because of Girls Dead Monster from Angel Beats, but Scandal really sealed the deal for me when I was old enough).

*My interest in Japan would be only limited to anime (now with Scandal, I watch a lot of their interviews/documentaries/tv appearances and learn a lot more about the culture of Japan.)

*I wouldn't be driven to learn Japanese (I would talk like I'm voice-acting for an anime...it's not bad...but it would be limited, and anime dialogue is a bit rude in Japan).

*I would be a bit less happy (Scandal is the biggest reason for my happiness, Scandal always makes me happy and lightens up my mood, so even during school during class, I open my phone from time to time to look at Tomomi, who's my lockscreen. I swear, I've listened to all their songs really often and have not yet to get tired of them.)

*My Signature too can explain some of the other reasons why Scandal is so important to me.

If SCANDAL never existed, I would probably have gone bald from me ripping my hair out from stress. SCANDAL is also a way I made some friends. They also inspire me to actually step outside my circle. So without them, I probably wouldn't be online talking to people. They have pretty much made my life better(don't mean to sound creepy). UHUH!

Haha same here.. I'm happier but somehow broke because of them..  Happy My little SCANDAL collections are my treasure..

I've done lots of things for them that I never imagined that I will be doing.. They are my inspiration when I bought my first guitar.. Haha I was a nerd during my college days and I've never imagined myself holding a guitar and joining a band. But now I'm a rhythm guitarist in two bands (with my office mates and with my friends). If they never existed, I'm probably not into music that much.

I also met some great friends because of SCANDAL.. I guess I will not meet them if SCANDAL never existed.. 

I'm probably a DOTA and PSP addict which is not really good.. They really changed my life for the better... 

Thank you SCANDAL!  Clap

I feel you guys, I forgot to add that onto my response above. Even though I'm 15, my college fund is slowly disappearing because of Scandal. Haha, it's okay, it's for a great cause.  Cool Walk
