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?
During the ending credits of the first Ruroken movie
What song was it?
First impression you had about ONE OK ROCK?
I immediately became a fan after listening to The Beginning. I really thought that they were or the vocalist at least the vocalist was half japanese because when he sang in english he sounded so good compared to the other Jap singers. Haha
From the time you first heard them to now, what is your favorite song from ONE OK ROCK and why?
I have to say The Beginning because it has a sentimental value for me. I remembered when I first heard the first 2 lines from the ending credits I was instantly hooked and as I listened to it more goosebumps started to rise on my arms and I thought to myself how perfectly suitable the song is to the story even though I can’t understand the Japanese parts. I didn’t just listened to it, I felt it- a bit cheesy, I know but it’s the truth. It was such a good and well written song. This song made me love them (=^_^=)
Did you start collecting ONE OK ROCK merchandise since you first listened to them?
If yes, can you tell us what they are?
Actually I started buying OOR merch after I purchased those concert t-shirts when they performed here in Manila. I wanted to buy 3 of those shirts but i can only afford 2 and unfortunately I wasn’t able to buy a beanie hat because it got sold out so fast(like those VIP tickets lol). Currently I have now besides what I’ve mentioned, is WAYWAW t-shirt, 35xxxv deluxe edition, pf 2016, and the most recent is 35xxxv japan tour live and docu
…as for now im saving money so I can buy those new merchs (hopefully soon) ?(*´?`)?
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.
I admire all of them because of how dedicated and passionate they are and you can see it on how each and everyone performs during live shows. But I admire Taka the most because of his outlook in life (although i still question his current life choices- I mean he can do what the hell he wants but have you seen his purple hair? my gaad.. wait, didn’t toru had almost the exact same hairstyle way back then?
ONE OK ROCK Live
How was your ONE OK ROCK live experience?
Have you watched them live?
If yes, where and when?
On January 19, 2016 at MOA arena, manila, Philippines
Can you tell us all about that live? First impressions, the experience, did you meet ONE OK ROCK up close in person?
Ahhh it was so surreal. I didn’t get to see them up close but to experience of being there, singing along with them to every song, jumping, flailing and dancing like a lunatic is one of my joyous events in my life. It’s forever engraved in my memory.
Your Ideal ONE OK ROCK live? (ex. ideal setlist, performing bands, etc.)
seeing them live is good enough for me *^_^*
The Most Important Questions
You shouldn’t miss these!
Has ONE OK ROCK changed your life?
Contrary to my real name, I’m pessimistic and gloomy but listening to One Ok Rock taught me how to look on the brighter side. That as long as you’re still breathing there’s still a chance to get what you want, to be who you want to be.
If ONE OK ROCK should find this response from our site, what would you like to tell them?
You guys don’t even know how much OOR changed my life I mean the gravity of your influence in my life is so great I don’t even want to think what I’ll be if I haven’t discovered OOR. I can’t thank you enough for everything. There will always be haters and bashers but they don’t really matter just keep doing what you love, keep being passionate and stay awesome.
We hope OOR will continue to rock your life and bring joy to you each time you listen to their tracks!!!
More updates soon! We’re on a roll and that’s soooo cool!!!
