Why should we be expected to search for information on something the original poster knows about and wants an opinion on? A tad more information in the original post seems to have been called for.

Visual kei ga chotto suki desu. Ongaku ga suki kedo, 'visual' ga suki dewa arimen.

Meh, I like a lot of V-kei bands, but it's more for their music, really.

HAHA! I knew Miyavi'd be on that list. Miyavi's about the only one I like. I love the BLOOD's The Funeral for Humanity though.

Miyavi was what got me into J-Rock lol.

Half the reason I stick with Japanese is the rock music. It's the best :)

Alice 9 = my new obsession lol. Actually, it's not really an obsession, but I really like them :)

An Cafe is pretty, but alot of their music is pretty bad, although they do have some good songs (I absolutely love the chorus to 'Maple Gunman,' that music video rock ^.^) Gazette's good too, when I'm feeling stressed, because I don't really like dark music, but I really like Gazette for some reason. Dir... I've heard a lot about them, but I only know one song... I think it's called 'Cage,' it's pretty good, but they are too dark for me. D'espairs... heard of them, never heard their stuff/seen them ever.

After I get over my Alice 9 obsession, I think I'm going to look into Kagra because I heard they were good... I just want to know everyone from P.S. Company (Do you know PS? That's the company Miyavi and A9 works for.) PS Co. has MYV, A9, Kagraa, Kra (who I can't stand -_-), and Gazette. Good stuff, mostly :)

Since you asked for my opinion:

Chinese: ?Visual Kei? 是非常難看。

Japanese: "Visual Kei" が大嫌いです。

English: "Visual Kei" is a ridiculous phenomenon made up of emo J-Rockers. Their album covers make me bleed out of all of my bodily orifices, and my corneas melt. My lenses suffer severe myopial dysfunction, resulting in the hemorrhages of optical tissues that can be only described by terms far too ghastly for you insigniciant emo minds.

冗談だよ! Kidding... at least in that I have nothing against "emo" people, whatever that actually means.
Well, seriously, some VK band music isn't bad, but I'm not too interested. Dir en Grey has adopted a less flamboyant look now, btw.

Most of the Visual Bands are just plain bad. (As you can see there are millions of them as indies and they Disband one after another) MOst of them have a really terrible Singer and they generaly sound all the same and look the same. But of course not all ;) But it seems like to me that of the fans are 14 Year old Femalese who just go for the looks. (they say they like the music too but that cant be with some bands :D)

2 Years ago i was at a Dir en grey concert, and 90% of the People where 14 Year old Screaming Girls :| They where screaming louder than the Music. I know Dir en grey are not Visual, but they get called that everytime... (media in Germany)

So erm what i wanted so say is, i dont care about all that Visual stuff, what counts is the Music.

Btw: I HATE all this "emo" hate talking. Every Music is Emo!

I like vkei bands!!! I like Kagrra, FATIMA, Due le quartz, -miyavi- (of course! :D), Gazette. But lately there are lots of new bands and I can't really keep up with them.

Due Le Quartz.... I'm sorry, but that vocalist (Sakito?) was awful. I'm so glad MYV left them...
