One of the beautiful things about the Visual Kei scene in current times is that it’s becoming more open to Overseas fans. What was once considered a ‘closed’ community has begun flourishing over the years for fans who live abroad. Though there are still language barriers in place, it has become much more accepting of fans who are not solely Japanese or speak Japanese. In fact, this desire to bridge the gap between Japan and fans overseas is the main goal Shattered-Tranquility has striven for over the last 6 years.
So, it’s always good when our favorite Visual Kei stores begin broadening their horizons!
Just last month, ZEAL LINK announced the creation of their ZEALLINKglobal twitter account, which will share updates from the store, information on specials and new releases, and special photos from some of your favorite bands! And, more than that, it is available in both English and Spanish.
Right now, the twitter seems to be quite active, so join Shattered-Tranquility today and follow them @ZEALLINKglobal for more ZEALLINK information and goodies.
