A community for discussion of the Japanese band Kagrra, (previously known as CROW)--as well as their brief "spinoff" bands Devil Christ 13 and Dragon Head. Kagrra,'s theme is "neo-japanesque": a fusion of traditional Japanese sounds and imagery with modern visual rock. This is a place where fans can gather, share info, pictures, random thoughts... all that good stuff. Please keep posts on topic and review the community rules before joining and posting. Be sure to check the community tags if you have any specific requests (such as for lyrics/tabs/pictures/the real names of the band members), as it may have already been posted. When you are ready to post, guidelines for tagging your entries can be found here.
As of 3/3/11 Kagrra, has come to their "demise." Thank you for your support over these past 10 years. We, as a community, will continue to support Isshi, Akiya, Shin, Nao, and Izumi in their new projects. Please continue to check kagrra for news, information, and other miscellany regarding Shiki-Project, PLAYERS, etc.
R.I.P. 一志 (1978.12.7 ~ 2011.7.18)
On July 25th, 2011, the Kagrra, fan community received word that Isshi had passed away in his home. He was 32 years old. Out of respect for Isshi, his friends, and his family, we ask that community members please refrain from using kagrra as a forum to speculate or spread rumors regarding the cause of his death.
Thank you, Isshi, for everything that you contributed to the music world. You will be sorely missed.
Requests for mp3s and videos in this community are not allowed and will be deleted without warning. More on this rule here. If you are looking for media files, please check out kagrra_media. Or YouTube. Or buy the CDs and DVDs.
Members are welcome to share their scans, icons, graphics, and fanart, but if the images are quite large or numerous, please put them behind an LJ-cut. Posts in violation of this rule may be deleted without warning (as per my discretion).
While the sharing of fanfiction is permitted in this community, strict rules are in place regarding the format and frequency of fanfiction posts. Author hopefuls: be sure to review this post re: guidelines for posting fanfics. However, you may find the kagrrafic community a more lenient forum in which to share your work.
Community advertisements, website plugs, auctions, etc. are permitted, but please keep them relevant and to a minimum. For example: preferably no more than two advertisements per single auction, no need to advertise your RP community every week, etc...
As for flaming, trolling, etc... you will generally find me to be a pretty laid-back mod and I encourage members to speak their minds. (Sometimes an honest membership is the best moderation a community can have.) That said, please keep it clean. I do not check every comment thread. If you find yourself with a serious problem, such as a troll, contact me privately and I will look.
A personal note: please do not end your posts with "if this is against the rules, please delete!" If you have read these rules, you will already know if your post is against them or not. And believe me, mods already feel free to delete your posts. No need to give us an OK.
