^ LOL nice one Yuu!!

How did SCANDAL change/affect my life? Oh well, not really to be honest. Hahaha just kidding. Well, I think "change" is an inappropriate term for me since I'm still the same since the first time I listened to them. So, they've "affected" my life in such a way that:

1. I'm studying Nihongo now as if I'm studying my most crucial subject way back in college because I really want to understand what they're saying. I gave up learning Nihongo one year ago but when I became a fan of SCANDAL, my interest came back again;

2. My music awareness expanded. I never listened to, uh "loud" songs before (well excluding Avril Lavigne's punk songs), but when I heard SCANDAL, well, you can guess what happened next;

3. I never really liked girl groups, be it Korean or Japanese. When I met SCANDAL, I disliked them even more. Hahaha. Well I mean no harm, it's just that I always think that they should do better things than exposing their skins and doing sexy dances, and SCANDAL is their exact opposite;

4. I can't let the day pass without hearing any SCANDAL song; and

5. I am spending a great deal of time in front of the PC. It's your fault SH!!! Hahaha joke! Oh well, it's not like it's a bad thing. I met many wonderful people in the cyber world when I became a fan of SCANDAL.

they made me go back to being a guitarist Clap
i stopped to play guitar around 2006.. after that, all i do school, play magic the gathering TCG, play online games, browse the net, etc.. at first, i can still handle myself out from addictiveness for this activities but later around 2009, i can't handle anymore.. i started to get failing grades.. but when i heard about them this late 2010, i was amazed by this cute little chicks in the way they play music.. at first, i'm just listening to few songs but later i enjoyed every single song they sang.. and then suddenly comes to my mind, "hmm, maybe i should get back to the music world".. after that, i plan on buying a fender standard stratocaster.. i sold all of my magic the gathering TCG cards that has quite a value to avail this.. and now, i'm currently practicing to get back my skills on playing guitar.. i currently own a black fender standard fat stratocaster , a vox pathfinder 15r amplifier, a boss ds-2, danelectro coolcat chorus, digitech bad monkey.. i'm still planning to add more effects pedals when i have the funds.. i really owe God for letting me know and be inspired by SCANDAL and get out if this darkness.. Love

Way before i knew about SCANDAL....maybe 4 years ago...I was a big fan of YUI..I really admire her because of her talent..so because of YUI..I wanted to learn how to play the guitar...but my mind was changed when K POP music emerged in the scene..i was addicted to Wonder Girls,SNSD and a whole lot more..so I kinda forgot about YUI...but then..i saw a video on youtube..i think it's title is "J-Rock vs. K-POP"..the first artists that was featured in that video was SCANDAL..the PV was Shoujo S..when i watched it..i said to myself "I think i'm in love with these girls"..so i search for their music videos on youtube..I think their latest single back then was "Shunkan Sentimental" and I did not even believe they could play their instruments at first but when i watched a whole lot of live videos i started to believe that cute girls can REALLY rock better than boys..I thought YUI was the best of all...But then there is SCANDAL....

So Scandal was my inspiration to work hard on playing the guitar..maybe without SCANDAL...i would live my life with no talents at all :D

SCANDAL changed me.
Previously when i still havent met them, im the girl who's really not passionate in the things i do.. i always hang out with people i really dont care much with. I'm not pushing my interests in music to it's limit.. I'm always onto studying..Nerd but now things changed when i met them..

i started playing the guitar once again, do recordings and etc, i even created a page and blog just to support them in all that i can to spread the scandal love. Onion Love

I always go home early just to spend my time with them (watching vids etc) which this made me make my own world and space to those people i dont care much LOL Hohoho Onion

and SCANDAL made me not REVIEW for exams LOLOLOL But i always get high grades coz im inspired to them Love
and for the WIN!

I started deleting important files just to make space of their newest vids in my HDD LOL! Sweating

I just tell story before and after i met SCANDAL

Spoiler:

Before I know SCANDAL, What i do is just lazing around and let my life just flow like it does without aiming something. Every time i meet something difficult i pass it and do what i want. Yuh can said my life is worthless and i don't value my life, so i think even if i die, the world isn't change either..

And so my friend give me video link about SCANDAL, TAKIMI. When i watch it, i feel much energy flow from them so i search about another song of SCANDAL'S... Although they are still young they can accomplished a big thing. It is first time in my empty life i really feel envy emotion. So i think everyone can be shine when we put effort on every action, i got that from SHUNKAN song. It's not a sudden change.. slowly but sure i start to believe myself and now i am a person who want to live longer because i need to accomplished as much thing i can before i die. And when i meet difficulty or feel depressed i always mumble in my heart,
"Itsumo SCANDAL BABY
Korekurai no koto de shippu maku watashi ja nai (Always scandal baby
At least with these things, I haven't given up) "
and i got my spirit to go till the end.

Just sharing guys, SCANDAL make me change to better person Nice One

My daughter had 'Anime news' as her home page on our PC a few years ago and there was a tiny advert for 'Doll' by 'Scandal'.
I am so glad that something made me 'click' on it or I would never have found out how amazing they are !

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!!!

true that, my man.. ^_^

well, here's mine.. I always liked rock, any form of rock.. and, I always liked to try playing the guitar but I had no time.. (*ahem* no time cause I was so busy playing computer games..) I wasn't always motivated to do anything and I had no goals, I just let time pass me by.. but when I "met" SCANDAL, I gradually decided to practice guitar. ^_^ I just started like a month ago when seeing MAMI at the ESY live, I asked myself "she can play the guitar like that, heck all of them can play like that and like, they just started learning intsruments a few years ago?" Why can't I do that also? There came the revelation to me.. if I hadn't just wasted my time, I could be a good guitar player right now.. So I started my small goal of learning guitar.. and also to much bigger goals for my life which are so cheesy I won't say here.. In short (sorry for this being long..) SCANDAL gave the inspiration and made me realize that WE can achieve great things if we set our hearts and minds to it.. Hope SCANDAL influences more people just like us here in SH.. More power SH and SKIANDARU, GAMBATTE!

Well since listening to Scandal I've GREATLY (I mean it) expanded my Asian music section in my iTunes music. I've tried and failed playing SCANDAL songs on piano Happy I thought after finishing learning piano I wanted to learn guitar but Haruna's hands put me off ... they look like my mums whos in her late 40s... OMG I might learn Bass then.... Cool

Unexpectly they filled that musical void in my heart which I never knew existed till SCANDAL come along... I will frankly say that I've never been such a fan of anyone nonetheless a band but SCANDAL completely changed that. I've glad to have found another SCANDAL addict in my year, my class. Music and SCANDAL really does bring people together... If I weren't to look SCANDAL up after Shoujo S I doubt I would have so many "new" friends from around the world whom I talk to pretty regularly.

Thanks to SCANDAL I have more exciting friends, learnt Hiragana and Katakana and I have something to have my fandom over and rants when my friend Cool
If I were to meet SCANDAL one day I'd have to give them a great big thank you! (Plus a big hug if the security guard permits...)

When I'm stressful or depressed, I listen SCANDAL music, their music makes me feel better, since I failed my last college year, their inspire me start again and motivates to continue, SCANDAL
SCANDAL could do that a lot psychologist couldn't do in me since I have 5 years old

they inspired me to start to play instruments (learn how to play it)

I can't express in words the gratitude that I have for them, specially when I try to speak in English, but the gratitude is very big Praise

thank SCANDAL for exist

hm before i heard of SCANDAL, i was a fan of jpop but i just never heard of them cause at the time Stereopony and YUI were the ones i listened to the most, especially YUI cause i've been a hardcore fan of hers since her debut. then bleach came on and i was watching shoujo s and i was like it was okay at the time( slapped myself after)then i heard Shunkan ans was like......why the hell didn't i get interested in the first place with shoujo s?!!!! so now i'm a big fan now and my life wasn't the same after that... UHUH!

First, before SCANDAL, I was always dabbling in guitar and playing off tabs and such, but never really dedicated the necessary practice time to get good at playing. After seeing SCANDAL and Mami's energy and enthusiasm playing guitar, I finally found the motivation to get serious about practicing and playing.

Second, being in a long distance relationship with my gf, I came to relate a lot to the lyrics in songs like Haruka, Switch, Aitai, etc. It's really helped to deal with all the difficulties of relationship by phone and communication (English isn't her first language). The lyrics being written by the girls themselves has provided some much-needed perspective.

Lastly, I think SCANDAL has given me a chance to be a really big fan of something, and not just a casual listener. The fact that they're not super huge and mainstream just yet makes it feel all the more special to have discovered them.

I can't agree more with this.. I was never a BIG fan of any certain band/artist until SCANDAL came.. Can't believe a rock/music enthusiast like me can become a fanboy because of SCANDAL! *gasp* Boom

@Mercurius: I know what you mean dude.. I'm also in one.. It takes patience, understanding, communication and of course.. SCANDAL! lol

Well, mine would be a little bit awkward and weird. It have been many times either I'm giving up, letting my friend go for it or being played by girls (stupid? yes I'm an idiot when it comes to romance XD). I even believed that impossible for me to have a girlfriend. Then I saw SCANDAL PV (namida no regret) that time I was attracted to their ballad song (I'm feeling sentimental that time), but after I dig more information about them, watch their interviews, I found out that they really work hard to achieve what they have today,they probably have shed tears and sweat a lot, they might find many problems and difficulties but they don't give up. they inspire me that way and the one who draw my attention the most among the group is Tomomi, somehow I like to see her smile it makes me smile and happy. After sometime passed, I fall in love for her (I know it sounds silly, I still can't believe it myself too), It makes me believe that "if it's her, it might be worth one last try". It sounds crazy and almost impossible, but almost impossible isn't impossible right? thanks to them I finally set a goal (dream) in my life which is to move to japan within 8 years or less Hard Work (So I could meet her and tell her how I feel).

P.S. : Thanks for reading my crazy stories and to Tomomi fans I'm sorry If I offend any one of you I just want to pour out my feelings. thanks once again and sorry Please
