The most popular mobile game in Japan "Nameko Saibai Kit(なめこ栽培キット:Mushroom Garden)" series held a fan meeting event last week in Tokyo. Unexpectedly this is the first time that they held a fan meeting event.
Demon Kakka(デーモン閣下)! (閣下:"Kakka" means "Excellency" in Japanese) the coolest heavy metal singer in Japan! He was the frontman of the legendary Japanese heavy metal band Seikima-II(聖飢魔II), and is known for always working entirely in character. In addition, he active as entertainer, journalist and Sumo commentator. (via Wiki). It is a digression, I'm a metal heads since the days of a primary schoolchild, and huge fan of Seikima-II. Because when I knew the holding of this event, I thought that this was just an event for me! :)
*Seikima-II...Japanese heavy metal band formed in 1982. A group of "Akuma" (devils), from the futuristic hyper-evolved dimension "Makai" ("demon world"), that are preaching a religion, in order to propagate Satan through the use of heavy metal music. Each member is a demon of a different hierarchical class, with His Excellency Demon Kogure being leader of the "Akuma" and His Majesty Damian Hamada being the "Crown Prince of Hell". In accordance to the prophecy and after completing their world conquest, the band disbanded at the end of the century on December 31, 1999 at 23:59:59. (Via Wiki)
Nameko and heavy metal? This is not a funny combination. Nameko released the second music CD "Nameko no CD 2(なめこのCD 2: CD of Nameko vol.2)" in the end of last year. Demon Kakka sang "Jigoku no Nameko no Uta(地獄のなめこのうた: Nameko's song in the hell)" in that. This event was related to it.
Nameko no Uta
It's a cute song. Luke Takamura which was band mate on Demon Kakka in former guitarists of Seikima-II arranged this in a hot heavy metal number. Furthermore, his current band CANTA played this. The drummer of CANTA is Raiden Yuzawa of former drummer of Seikima-II. In other words, three former members of Seikima-II gathered through Nameko. This is the first time that they collaborated after they dissolved a band. Demon Kakka said, "The high tone shout of this was the most difficult in my 30 years music career. Because I recorded it many times again." "The band has very superior technique, too. They are the strongest trio band. Not only my song but also they are splendid. This is a precious example musically."
Hell yeah!!! \m/
I wish heartily this topic is shared by metal heads and mobile game industry of the world.
