Fans on ONE OK ROCK: First Stage
How did you get into this fandom?
When was the first time you heard about ONE OK ROCK?
I don’t really remember when it was but if it’s not 2010 then probably early 2011.
What song was it?
Kako wa Kyoukasho ni Mirai wa Shukudai
First impression you had about ONE OK ROCK?
I thought they were cool.
From the time you first heard them to now, what is your favorite song from ONE OK ROCK and why?
C.H.A.O.S.M.Y.T.H. It’s the song of their bond. How they grew up; how they fought battles for where they are standing now; how they had had down days and hopelessness; and how the song portrays them as normal humans just like everybody else. Listening to the song makes you reminisce of the time they started and visualize the road they have taken. Euphoria and nostalgia combined.
Did you start collecting ONE OK ROCK merchandise since you first listened to them?
Where do you usually buy your merch?
Local merch sellers
Which ONE OK ROCK Member do you love the most?
Why him or them? If you picked two or more, you need to highlight why you like them.
Simple. Because they are ONE OK ROCK.

Doing anything fan related for ONE OK ROCK?
What kind of fan work are you doing?
For fanart/fanfiction/covers: Tell us about your works and how did ONE OK ROCK inspire you to do it?
After the concert, I started photographing again. ONE OK ROCK’s deep appreciation for us Filipino fans and their passion in their music gave me the courage to once again, click the camera’s shutter.
To who in ONE OK ROCK are you dedicating your works?
ONE OK ROCK (everyone of them) including Julen Sir actually
ONE OK ROCK Live
How was your ONE OK ROCK live experience?
Have you watched them live?
If yes, where and when?
Manila Concert 160119
Can you tell us all about that live? First impressions, the experience, did you meet ONE OK ROCK up close in person?
It was one of the best moments of my life! They were very appreciative and their passion is burning I was in so much awe. During the live, I turned into someone I never thought I would become but I did. But it was only for that moment. I had to go back to reality after. But ONE OK ROCK taught me so much about myself that it’s strange how I’ve learned those things from people who has no idea I ever existed. And yeah, I had the chance to shake Taka’s hand and see them upclose. Really, really close. I’m taller than Toru. Lol
Where do you plan to watch them next?
I’m waiting for them to be back here in Philippines. I can’t afford to watch them abroad.
Your Ideal ONE OK ROCK live? (ex. ideal setlist, performing bands, etc.)
Their older songs, and guest appearances of Crossfaith, Satoh Takeru, Miura Shohei and well, since it’s ideal, I’d like to include, SPYAIR and ALEXANDROS. HAHAHA!
We will ask you some opinions on usual trends on ONE OK ROCK now.
What’s your current impression with how the band is going now?
They’re getting more and more “americanize“. It’s not a bad thing but somehow, I want them to remain Japanese. But, well, they’re growing so I have to support them since I am a fan.
What’s your opinion about fans leaving the ONE OK ROCK fandom because of various factors? (Ex. the release of 35XXXV, tour scheds, collabs)
Bullshit. If you’re a fan, those trivial things won’t matter.
What do you wish for ONE OK ROCK to do next? (ex. music changes, collaborations, hair styles, etc).
Concert in the Philippines.
