band has a ritual where they snuggle on a single loveseat and watch the latest One Piece "voyage" (set of a few episodes)
Source: heard them talking backstage about wanting to skip a show to watch

Always love when people who don't live in said country, wax on about how wonderful and great its culture and society are. Visiting is not living there. They have a deep respect for Japanese culture? Ok, you are banned from some hotels, virtually all onsens and public pools, most gyms just for having your shitty tattoos. You'll never be accepted in J-Society as equal to Japanese people. I could go on and on forever.

These guys love Japan because it's so cool there and they have so many video games and the CARTOONS! Why can't America make cartoons as good as Japan?

Yea, so many video games - if you love dating simulator games i.e. gaydom. The cartoons suck there, too.

hardcore is still good, just have to filter through all the dumb 18v, disembodied and prayer for cleansing cover bands and you're good
