Lately I’ve been listening to Kirito’s voice. This happen after I heard Angelo’s newest single album, “Hikari no Kioku”. Since then I start my journey to the past with Angelo and Kirito. I’ve found songs that become my favorite. And Kirito really has an unique voice [not mention face XP]. His description make me remember of Yasu (ABC).
At first I was feeling scared with Yasu, but now it has been reduced XP But, not with Kirito. Even though I like his music and voice, I still feeling afraid of him. Kirito’s look is so scary. I’m guessing that he’s a scary, harsh, and weird guy. I’m quite right with the weird term. Kirito is really weird XP He has a quite weird way of thinking. I can’t understand his lyrics even with the English translations.
He’s also a dedicated person. In one PV making, I saw Kirito involve himself giving direction in the set. I can feel the aura, “he’s the boss” XP It’s not a bad side. I think he’s awesome to willing getting involve like that, or is it a usual thing to do with his role in making concept??
One of the weird thing from Kirito was his claim for being a gay. I’m amazed! It’s the first time I heard someone make such public claim. Well many have but not particular artist I like. People said it was only a joke by Kirito. I also can’t believe it too, which side will Kirito fits in?? XP But the truth is I don’t care. I like his music and his sexual orientation really doesn’t bother me. He’s happy and can make good music, it will be enough for me :)
So far, I’ve been listening to Kirito’s works, either solo or with Angelo. I think I like his solo works better :) I like few songs from his two albums: Negative and Hameln, such as: Tear, Kagerou, Door, Decide, Period, Hakudou, Cherry Tress, and many more. My favorite from Angelo are: Hikari no Kioku, Last Song, Rainbow, Reborn, Sister, Winter Moon, Usubeni no Kakera, Chaotic Bell, See you again, He is a monkey, etc. Kirito’s voice and music really can take me to another world, the realm of Kirito.
I also have new writing idea after I listen to Winter Moon and Usubeni no Kakera. I also really like the video! It’s awesome and inspiring me to write new story.
One other thing that also surprised me was the fact that Kirito is a quite funny and shy guy. Sometimes I laugh watching video about his act. Even so, I think the term weird is rather fit him XP And also, I’ve found out that Kirito is Yasu’s best friend! What a small J-Rock world!! My favorite J-Rock artist are best friends!! Sugoi!! XDD
