The Japanese visual -kei music that I became the peak in Japan in 1990’s, and declined afterwards. However, it is popular recently in the Europe when “lovely” “is cute”. We seem to have the boom of the Japanese animated cartoon in the cause.

Visual Kei (ヴィジュアル系, vijuaru kei) refers to a movement among Japanese musicians,that is characterized by the use of eccentric, sometimes flamboyant looks. This usually involves striking make-up, unusual hair styles and elaborate costumes, often, but not always, coupled with androgynous aesthetics.Some sources state that Visual Kei refers to a music genre, or to a sub-genre of J-rock (a term referring to Japanese rock in general ), with its own particular sound, related to glam-rock, punk and metal, and with strong emphasis on its unique style of dress; and some sources state that Visual Kei’s unique clothing and make-up fashions, and participation in the related sub-culture, is equally as important as the sound of the music itself in the use of the term.

Quotation from “Visual kei” Wikipedia

You must think well about the future of the Visual-Kei boom. It is got tired only by an appearance before long. The last evaluation will be decided by musicality.
