It’s time for another Weekly Discussion Question! This week’s question is extremely, well, visual.
YouTube has been a great tool for visual kei bands. It allows them to share music videos, off-shot clips, and more with fans both in Japan and overseas. Many bands and record labels have official channels to host their videos. For those that choose not to upload their masterpieces to YouTube, there are usually fan uploads to make up for it.
We know that you love seeing visual kei on YouTube, but are there ever times that you’ve thought, “Man, it would be really nice if (band) did more,” or, “Boy, I wish I could find (band)’s videos on YouTube period!” That brings us to this week’s question:
Do you believe visual kei bands are using YouTube to its full potential? What are some ways in which you think it can be used better?
And for a bonus question:
Do you know any bands that have particularly effective or entertaining YouTube channels?
