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 first heard One Ok Rock from a classmate way back 2010.
What song was it?
Wherever You Are
First impression you had about ONE OK ROCK?
At first, I thought One Ok Rock was just like any band that would be famous for a moment after creating 1 good song and then nothing. They will just vanish into thin air. But I already feel in love with the lyrics of Wherever You Are and I knew from The Beginning that it would be one of the songs that will be played on my wedding day :-D.
From the time you first heard them to now, what is your favorite song from ONE OK ROCK and why?
It’s actually hard to pick just one favorite song from them because all of their songs are just really great!!!!! But so far it’s Wherever you are, Decision, C.h.a.o.s.m.y.t.h. and Nothing Helps. Actually, I think all of their songs are just the best.
Did you start collecting ONE OK ROCK merchandise since you first listened to them?
Which ONE OK ROCK Member do you love the most?
Taka, Toru, Ryota, Tomoya
Why him or them? If you picked two or more, you need to highlight why you like them.
I like Taka because of his voice. That husky voice he’s got and the ability to control it even when he is running or jumping is just so amazing. His stage presence can also be felt even if you’re just watching him on screen. With Tomoya, I just love him. I don’t just see a drummer everytime they perform but I see an artist with so much passion on what he does and its the same with Ryota. With Toru, it’s also the same and I don’t just see a Toru as lead the guitarist of the band but I also see him as brain of the band. You know all the patience he had just to keep the band together in their early days up until now. I know it’s also a joint effort by all of them now a days but I can’t help but think of it everytime I see him on stage.

Doing anything fan related for ONE OK ROCK?
What kind of fan work are you doing?
I collect info’s about them and place it in one place. I do it so that I have something to look back years from now.
For fanart/fanfiction/covers: Tell us about your works and how did ONE OK ROCK inspire you to do it? (include URLs of your works)
I do it so that I have something to look back years from now and also to make it easier sharing to my friends.
To who in ONE OK ROCK are you dedicating your works?
Hopefully, one day, I can post them online. So that it will be easier for fans to look for information about them.
Have you met other fans through your fanpages?
Future plans with your fanpages? (Ex. contests, fan meet, etc).
As for now,I still find it hard to personally join One Ok Rock activities, so at the moment, I’m trying to follow almost all their moves so that if given a chance to participate in any activity, I will be always on the go.
ONE OK ROCK Live
How was your ONE OK ROCK live experience?
Have you watched them live?
Your Ideal ONE OK ROCK live? (ex. ideal setlist, performing bands, etc.)
Hopefully, they’ll be able to perform here in the Philippines again. Whatever song they choose, I’m always on it.
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?
I’m happy with what they’re doing right now. Penetrating the western market is not easy and I love their changes. I just really hope that one day, Taka’s dream of singing Japanese songs in the west will really do come true.
What’s your opinion about fans leaving the ONE OK ROCK fandom because of various factors? (Ex. the release of 35XXXV, tour scheds, collabs)
It really saddens me. Because as fans, we are meant to support them through out and besides, it’s still the same band I knew from the start. I mean, there is nothing wrong with their music right now. They’re just really finding more ways to reach out to more people that’s why they adopt change.
What do you wish for ONE OK ROCK to do next? (ex. music changes, collaborations, hair styles, etc).
I hope the same hope as Taka for One Ok Rock and I hope they’ll go with tours with MFS. 😀 I just want to see these siblings together on stage. Maybe collaborate with Linkin Park, Metallica and of course Simple Plan. And also Journey.
The Most Important Questions
You shouldn’t miss these!
Has ONE OK ROCK changed your life?
I’m not really into rock music but they made me realize that rock songs also has depths and that it’s not just about shouting or screaming. And every time I feel so down, their songs really encourages me to fight and face the world.
