What VisualSesu is the obvious definition of Visual Kei; but its kinda like, they do kind of "dress-up" a lot. Dir en grey are not classified as Visual Kei and do not wish to be, so they have kinda drawn the line. Look at what they look like now and what they did look like in the MISSA-era. I'm sure you'll see the answer for yourself!
Anyways, I like alotta bands.. my top 5 are:
Dir en grey
Rentrer En Soi (these dudes are keeping the VK scene alive!)

I'm just trying to understand how much of the fandom is based solely on musical merit and how much is based on associated visual imagery.

I only like a few, i.e. Gackt, Dir en Grey, Miyavi, Schwarz Stein, X Japan...
Can anyone suggest anymore, since I really want to expand my JRock music?
Alice Nine is pretty good, I just got into them like last week. Gazette's pretty good too. Both of these bands are a bit darker, but they aren't as dark as Dir en Grey so you should be fine.
Also, if you want something funny/cute, An Cafe is pretty good. The guitarist... thinks his a girl... I think... It's kinda funny sometimes lol.
