Long story of how Versailles fandom disappointed me

This is not what I wanted to be posting today. I wanted to translate and post here my report from KAMIJOs concert in London I went to on Tuesday; it was one of the best nights of my life and I wanted to share my experience with you. But then I saw some hateful comments towards KAMIJOs support members, coming from people who havent even seen those guys live, and I got upset. So, instead of posting my report, I decided to update and post this thing I wrote some time ago. I know Ill probably get ignored and I wish I didnt care, but I just feel there are a few things that need to be said.


Just to make it clear, Im saying all of this as a great Versailles fan. Theyre my favourite band ever and they always will be; Ive been with them since the beginning, worked in their official Street Team, saw them live once and, as all of us, I was absolutely heart-broken when they announced their hiatus. Also Versailles fandom has been my second family for years. Ive met practically all my dearest friends here and was always excited getting to know someone who loved Versailles just like me. I thought this fandom was great. I thought so But now it seems I was wrong. Not about all the fans, of course; but apparently Versailles had to go on hiatus for something to become clear. As soon as things stop going like they wish, many of their fans become horrible and cruel to the band members and people they choose to work with. This applies to Jupiter, ZIN and KAMIJOs support members. Theyre receiving so much hatred they DONT deserve, it really scares me. I cant understand WHY it is happening. Dear Roses, dear all fellow Versailles fans - this is not okay. Being frustrated and disappointed doesnt give you a right to treat innocent people like this.

First of all, Versailles said they would be back, we believed them and yes, I still believe theyll be back someday, but they didnt say it would happen soon. They didnt say its just a short hiatus, well be back next year/in two years/three years or anything like this, so what do you expect? No matter how much you hate Jupiter and build pressure on them and show how disappointed and annoyed with them you are, it wont change anything. I saw people saying its taking too long and that they should already disband. Seriously, how can you wish them to disband? They live from music they create! If you claim yourself a Versailles fan, you should support the members or, at least, RESPECT THEIR CHOICES even if you dont like them and youd prefer them to do something different. But what I wanted to say is that still, even when you wish all the worst to Jupiter and all you want is this band to disappear, you keep forgetting about someone. Jupiters disband wont give you Versailles back unless KAMIJO wants them to be back. And in case you havent noticed it yet, hes doing great as a solo artist. He is happy, he can do whatever he wants, have his army, his kingdom, a huge World Tour to celebrate his 20th anniversary and all of this. Do you really think he would just throw it all away now, even if Jupiter disbanded for some reason? He had wanted to go solo for YEARS, even before Versailles formed, and if you havent thought yet that it was probably him who came up with the idea of hiatus and who wanted to do other things on his own, then you should have thought of it. Dont be naive. He wasnt kicked out of his own band (noticed how he called himself the leader of Versailles and HIZAKI the leader of Jupiter? Why do you think he did it?) and ZIN didnt take his place, like some of you seem to think. The rest of the band stayed together, but most of the time I see people blaming them for the hiatus, not KAMIJO. Because they still like his music, I guess? Either way, its ridiculous.

But really, no-one should be blamed for this and if youre blaming KAMIJO instead of Jupiter, youre not any better. The point is - its their bands, their music, their lives and their choices. They dont belong to you and acting like a child whose toys were taken away wont make them change their mind. This applies especially (but not only) to KAMIJO x HIZAKI fans. Like, dont get me wrong, ships are okay, I have my OTPs too and I fangirl the shit out of everyone in sight when I see them, but I and my friends noticed a lot of people hating Jupiter were KAMIZAKI fans. Honeys, if youre getting so frustrated that your fantasies dont fit reality (because you cant see KAMIJO and HIZAKI on stage together anymore and oops, theyre probably not dating) that you cant think properly, you might have a problem. Sorry if it sounds rude but youre being very rude too. Its your problem, not theirs, could you please keep it away from them? Because surely theyre not interested in it.

Im especially sick of ZIN haters. Seriously, people, could you please just stop comparing him to KAMIJO? I know, might be hard to do when the rest of the band is the same and only vocalist changed, but its so unfair. Hes a different person, hes not KAMIJOs rival, hes not a KAMIJOs replacement and Jupiter IS NOT Versailles-with-a-different-vocalist-you-dont-like, but a completely different project. If you dont like ZINs voice, its okay. If you like KAMIJOs voice more its also okay, so do I. But hating on a young vocalist who got a chance to work with older, more famous and more experienced musicians, is absolutely horrible. Hes very talented, hes done nothing wrong and hes doing his best! Last year I saw both Jupiter and KAMIJO live, at both concerts I was standing in the second row, in front of ZIN and in front of KAMIJO - they were both great! I loved how excited ZIN was, he put all his heart into performing for us, kept holding our hands and saying he loved us again and again. He also sounded better than on the CD so I want to laugh whenever I hear another he sucks when he sings live Especially that KAMIJO isnt too great if it comes to this, either. Can you imagine how much it must hurt ZIN, to do his best just to hear WE WANT KAMIJO BACK!!? Hes also someone HIZAKI and the rest chose to work with and if it isnt enough for you to respect him, then you have no respect for HIZAKI and the rest, either. And if you dont, have at least some decency and stop calling yourself their fan because youre not.

I still remember how some so-called fans decided to hate MASASHI because he joined Versailles and took Jasmines place. Its been a few years since then and no-one seems to remember it, but I can see how now the same thing is happening, people just found another victim and it makes me so angry. If you dont like him, then fine, the rest of us will, just leave him alone! And now its not only him, people are hating even on musicians KAMIJO choose to support him during his tour! You just want to hate everyone who comes near Versailles members and youll always manage to find something to hate them for, wont you? I saw someone referring to them as things, being annoyed that theyre not smiling in the pictures (as if MASASHI and KAMJO were!) or complaining that Meku isnt as cute as HIZAKI (someone literally wanted to punch him because of this!!!) and seriously, I have no words to describe this level of stupidity. Its beyond my comprehension. I just saw them live and can assure you theyre doing a great job, they dont expect your love or even interest in return (MAOKI was literally shocked when my friends did as much as waving to him!), so do us a favour and SHUT UP.

*exhales*

I just want to say that ZIN, Meku and MAOKI are real people with real feelings and theyre not blind; they can see your comments and if you think hurting their feelings is okay, then I hope your heart stays broken forever and Versailles will never be back. As much as I love them - much more than Jupiter and even KAMIJOs solo - I dont want them to be back if its just to satisfy sick fangirls needs.

So, to put it short: If you cant move on and all you want to do is to sit and complain while waiting for Versailles comeback, then have fun, but dont upset other people, other fans and especially the band members. Realise that itll probably take a few more years until theyre back or, at least, it doesnt seem now that itll happen soon And I silently hope some of the fans either manage to grow up or lose the interest in them until then. You know, it seems like something that would be better for everyone.

Thanks for attention. Comments are welcome. Id like to know what other people think of all of this and Id especially like to know what exactly makes people hate Jupiter. Warning: I just dont like their music and I dont like ZINs voice will only confirm youre mentally twelve or have some serious problems with yourself. What you guys do isnt what people normally do when they simply dont like something.
