Discovering Scandal reinvigorated my love of music! Contemporary music here in the US is (to me) unlistenable. No creativity... no artistry... no beauty... and no joy.

With Scandal, I WANT to listen to music again! In fact, I can't wait until I can listen to them again. Their songs make me feel happy, pick me up when I feel down, and just put me in a better mood. When I listen to them, they carry me away for awhile so I can forget about life's troubles. Their enthusiasm and energy are so contagious - you can tell they love the music they make & perform!!

They also opened my eyes and ears to the fact that music is a universal language we all can share. Thank god I found Scandal - the world would be a lot less beautiful without you girls!!!

Onion Love

I've always wanted to learn bass since I've always noticed the basslines of songs instead of the melody. Tomomi inspired me to actually go out there, buy a bass and play. And I must say I now enjoy playing bass more than the guitar, but of course I still have much to learn.

And of course, following the girls on Twitter made me try to practise my Japanese as well as learn new words, even though their slang is kinda tough to understand.

SCANDAL also gave me the opportunity to plan out an overseas trip by myself and travel for the first time without my family. Now I'm kinda addicted to it, if they come to HK every year I'll probably try to go each time Tongue

SCANDAL got me into Japanese music, and they're also the main reason why I started learning Japanese.

I'm half-Japanese, born and raised in Los Angeles, and the only language I knew was English (I'm yonsei - fourth generation in the US), though I always was around the culture, knew a few words in Japanese, had Japanese-speaking relatives (haha my great-grandmother used to call me Mie-chan), and had loved Japanese stuff when I was younger. One of my friends was obsessed with anime at one point and got me hooked on some series as well, such as Fullmetal. Then, for reasons that I still can't understand, I started disliking all things Asian when I was in my early teen years and such. lol I really don't know wth happened to me then...blame it on teenage hormones and high school. Facepalm

lol anyway, I started watching FMA:B around the time the third OP and ED first began airing and had generally liked most of the songs that were used in the anime so far, so when I heard about the fourth OP and ED that were coming out, I was excited to find out which songs were going to be used. Soon radio rips were posted online and I listened to both of them. I really liked both of them but had especially liked Shunkan Sentimental. One thing led to another and soon I was obsessed with SCANDAL. I think they were probably the first Japanese band/artist whose music I really, truly enjoyed + downloaded. I started to listening to more Japanese artists after them, and Japanese music is pretty much all I'm listening to right now. I honestly don't really care for much American music nowadays. haha.

Skipping ahead a little to the end of Jan./Feb. of last year: I had to take at least one more class for my upcoming college semester, and I figured, "Hey, why not Japanese? I love Japanese music and would love to understand what they (though mainly just SCANDAL lol) are saying." So I took the class and immediately began loving the language, although it can be rather difficult and sometimes makes my head feel like it's going to explode. haha. I really hope that one day I can become fluent in it. I also began loving all things Japanese again...and now I'm beginning to crave for some sushi...

I also would love to go to Japan one day. I don't think I could ever live there by myself for a long length of time, though, so I'd probably go there to study for a bit, and, of course, to see SCANDAL live haha. One day!


Edit: A little after a year from when I first wrote this, I did go to Japan for their Budokan live haha. And I also would like to add that if it wasn't for SCANDAL, I never would have met my amazing giraffe

Hm.. Okay here is my story (quite boring perhaps..)
Spoiler:

since i was still in elementary school, I was really addicted with anything that have correlation with anime and manga.. altough I could only watch it in TV (and it was subbed by Indonesian people) and I started loving the anime song
especially when it was performed with LARUKU or MAAYA SAKAMOTO

As the timeflows, my list of fave anime song expanded, I like almost every anime song and the other japan song (which even not used in opening/ending in anime) some of them was so memorable and I just can get out it in my head..

just liking the anime music was not enough for me.. I also addicted in manga and really dreaming to become a legendary mangaka such as AKIRA TORIYAMA
that's why I keep drawing and creating manga

I was driven to draw draw an DRAW, and as the peak of my effort I trying submitting my comic proposal to the publisher..
and as the result my comic proposal was rejected (sometimes I got no answer) succesfully Cry

I always try to submit my comic but.. it always get an EPIC fail
between years of 2003 till 2005 was the most depressing years for me.. (and knowing that ZONE is no ore exist makes me more depressed in abyss), I got so much stress in School Life makes me become A High Masive Passive person that hell no care with the world Frustrated

and just song of Maaya could only relaxing my heart (but i still couldn't find any song that could LIGHT UP my SPIRIT until CLIMAX)

years of 2007 till almost end of years 2009, I tried to send my comic again (in start of 2007), but like always.. it was just another failure
I felt my life so empty.. without any meaning of LIFE.. at that time I was absolutely HATE with Drawing and creating Comic (I even BURN all my comic project without hesitation)

I LOST MY DREAM

I LOST MY HOPE

IN THE END I'm just hope that I was NOBODY Onion Depress (Kingdom heart)

altough I know I still Hate with drawing but I just can't stop drawing (my hand don't allow me to IT).. I keep drawing without any Sense of Life in it.. but I still get help because my heart still got relaxed with my japanese anime song collection (too bad, there was no song could light up my spirit back to life (except The Blackmage instrumental song and other FF themesong, and of course LARUKU)

at March 2010... I was got occupation and at that time I was found SCANDAL in Youtube.. firstly just hear the Shoujo S... and Hey.. I like this one too
Then don't know how, but I feels that my SPIRIT of LIFE back to BURNING again
more I find out the information about SCANDAL in youtube.. More I like them
then I read some comment that really drive me to become more curious about SCANDAL

Thank's to mc for creating this HEAVEN

and thanks to kakuzu for introducing this HEAVEN

and thanks to all contributor of this forum.. so I could FELL IN LOVE to SCANDAL too

why I like SCANDAL? reason is simple.. almost of their song that damn so COOL, I couldn't explain it.. but I feel that my day always felt so bright whenever I hearing their song.. no matter what kind of problem that I must faced in REAL life.. I still could faced it with smile in my face

for me, There is no DAYS without SCANDAL song..

more of it.. everytime I saw their performance video, their Happyness, and their laugh (even their silly gag XD).. I just feel so close to them (like we were a remote siblings XD)

AND.. the most greatest effect of them is.. My sense in Creating comic Was Back and it become GREATER than I expected before.. I just can't helped with this Overwhelming feeling

and VOILA.. I create SHOUJO MAGIC for my way to respecting them changing my Life become better and better.. give me a lot of Positive energy to face this unexpected life Clap

and MORE THAN just giving spirit of positive to Me....
FINALLY, MY DREAM to become legendary mangaka was back in my heart again.. I continuing My SEALED project W.A.R.F.I.E.L.D:SNOW OF ASH Hard Work

I just HOPE.. someday..When my sealed project becomes BIG and became Famous in this EARTH (especially in NATION called JAPAN :D )
and it could become anime like GHOST in the SHELL Rich

I HOPE I Could meet SCANDAL and make them perform the opening, insert and ending song for my W.A.R.F.I.E.L.D:SNOW OF ASH

and that was MY ABSOLUTE FINAL FANTASY of my life, and there is no more happiness could exchange that feeling Dies

NB:
But I think I must creating Fan base for W.A.R.F.I.E.L.D:SNOW OF ASH first as the beginning of my HUGEE SUTEEPPU :D

So.. I just could say THIS IS IT:

THANK YOU SCANDAL for HELPING me REVIVE from ThE ABYSS of DARKNESS.. I really Owe you girl, For this SPIRIT/cosmo LOVE

SCANDAL helped me to get through a really bad break-up.
When I felt absolutely devastated about my ex moving on with another girl, the songs Aitai and Namida no Regret really helped me. This sounds so silly, but I felt like I was Rina in the Namida no Regret PV hahaha.
And on the days when I was so depressed I didn't want to get up, especially since there was a possibility I would run into my ex at school, GIRLism inspired me to get out of bed, get myself looking decent and walk into school with my head held high.
When I felt like I wasn't worth anything, the SCANDAL members' attitude and confidence inspired me (and still inspires me) to be more confident in myself, to find what it is I'm passionate about and go for it.

but not to the point that i collect almost all of their pv's and even interviews.. and as time passes by i felt like im not doing so much for them.. im poor so i can't buy any of their albums.. i just download them and that doesn't help them that much.. so i decided maybe i can help in making them known in other ppl..

gosh.. i really felt the same...i never listened to pop rock before... but these girls, even though they were commercialized as pop... all i can say is that they really rock...

Discovering SCANDAL (and to a lesser extent, Stereopony) rekindled my interest in music again. I'm playing guitar again, thanks to them.

Never in my life did I ever think that I would be so crazy about a JAPANESE POP ROCK GIRL BAND. If my metalhead friends knew about this....

SCANDAL influenced me to start listening to J-music... eventually that led me to stop listening to english songs, which I so totally do not regret switching. It also influenced me (along with anime) to start learning jap... even though I'm doing it off the web for now.

I can never imagine a day without SCANDAL now... Seriously. There isn't a day where I don't listen to their songs, or watch any of their vids, or even log-on here. SCANDAL definitely pulled me in. Hook, line, and sinker. And I'm so glad to be a SCANDAL fan. :)

I'm not gonna be hypocritical and say that SCANDAL introduced me to Jap rock, because well, in all honesty, they didn't, YUI did. And I won't even say that they are my favourite Jap rock artists, that title goes to L'Arc en Ciel.

So how did SCANDAL change my life? Well, for one, I'd be a lot less broke now xD But nah, I strongly believe that whatever I buy now is completely worth it, I mean, let's face it, we live in a world filled with piracy, and I would not even consider getting their albums if I didn't think they are worth it, which they are, every penny. (Except for maybe Nanka Buttobase) xD

All in all though, SCANDAL...well, they filled a void in my musical world. Before I met them, I was honestly pretty bored with Japanese music, or hell, music in general. Ironic, considering I was learning how to play the guitar at the time, but fact is, nothing interested me. YUI sounded bland, all the new artists was meh, or just plain lacking in talent. In all honesty, when I downloaded DOLL, I didn't consider SCANDAL to be anything more than your average girlie band which just sells on their cuteness. Not that those types of bands are a bad thing, just that I was sick with the AKB48 and Morning Musumes,of this world, they're all...repetitive.

Of course, Shunkan wasn't. It was well, rock. Like, LITERAL rock, not some half-assed girlie pop rock, and that's when I started thinking that I found a gem in my hands. I downloaded BEST SCANDAL soon after, and well, I was pretty much assured by that point in time. SCANDAL was here to stay.

And so, several hundred bucks and several thousand listens later, here I am, a proud fan of SCANDAL. I have watched them transform from cute high school girls to intense rock princesses. I can't say I approved of all of their career decisions..or hell, all of their singles for that matter. (Sorry, but Nanka Buttobase just wasn't good enough for me), but I know that I'll always be their fan, until it reaches the point where they nosedived to "Happy Rotation" territory (Youtube it, go ahead), and I will always be thankful to SCANDAL for filling up my iTunes for the past 2 years, and hopefully for the next years to come.

i wonder why i dont have anything posted here.. ehem..here's mine Waaa Onion

well, like most guys here before i met them, i was a closet otaku turned magician who cut ties with Japanese culture.(yes i did that) the reason is i got bored with everything related to Japan.

Something weird happened tho, one day my sis asked me, "Oi bakayarou! have you heard of SCANDAL? i said huuuuuuuuuuuuuh?!?! wth you talking about?!?! and she said that it was an from bleach. so i decided to search it. and at first i was like Frustrated .

but after pressing the replay button alot i grew fond of them and decided to research everything about them. thus locating BEAUTeen and becoming a fanboy Clap

Since then my fondness of J-music, and everything about Japan came back.
and i dont regret spending my time or anything for SCANDAL :D
