There is a video from the Hello Kitty event, and pics of yoga items

-sigh- It does seem like merchandise is more important than music.....

what the? why are they selling these? what does it have to do with their music?

If you could have told me everything
You would have found what love is
For now I will try to live for you and for me
I will try to live with love, with dreams,
and forever with tears

Hmm....correct me if I'm wrong..but aren't those items available only to that x japan street army members thing...?
Which is more or less like some kind of fanclub?
Where people pay to become members of?
IF that is the case (I might have misunderstood sth) and those people are paying to be members of sth...I guess it makes sense to release special merchandise to them...right?
I mean....to keep them uh...happy about being members..I guess.

Anyway....I've noticed that in Japan people really love merchandise about everything..not just bands.
Even less well known bands release photobooks and tshirts, hardly known manga have all sorts of merchandise too, there are cell phone straps with mascots of anything you can imagine....so it doesn't surprise me that there are 54753443642324 different (and useless) X Japan merchandise as well....XD



Yeah, I'm a Yoshiki fangirl. SUE ME.

I suggest starting a "stupid, useless and expensive merchandise" thread and it can go there.

great idea,seeing that these things won't be the last merchandise they release xD

Okay, I don't think this has anything to do with Yoshiki but more likely with the mangagement and even more so with the japanese way of ....media and so on in general. I have to agree with roseofpain that it seems just NORMAL to have all kinds of (useless) merchandise of everything in japan. xD this might seem weird here, but it's normal over there.
....I saw what other (pop) artists are selling, really, X are still totally easy going............ xD

Leave the condoms alone, will you? That X decided to do something like releasing condoms and through it promoting safe sex and in particular protection against AIDS is something X fans should be proud of, not moan about. They actually helped raise AIDS awareness in Japan. And if you didn't know, then learn to know what you're talking about before you talk about it.

I didn't know that! ThanX for posting : O

but all the reactions here make me feel like the world's about to end because X decided to release some random merchandise. Nobody's forcing you to buy it and as others have said, it's normal in Japan. And they're meant for Japan since Street Army members need to have a Japanese address to join. So get over it! >.<

yes,but this is forum,people make thread,people give opinion to that topic,people's agree,people's disagree,so it was our rights to voice our thoughts,and sadly most of them are reflection of our disappointment that has been accumulated because Yoshiki is more eager to make X Japan as a brand.And how many Japan artist there who releases both album/single/dvd with merchandises in balance?I don't think that would as much as X Japan's
and,ok condom is fine,usb is alright,but curry,dumbbell set,what the heck!??even if I had money,I won't waste to those,but that's just me though.

This really shouldn't be surprising to anyone.  I'm honestly not shocked this much stuff came out.  Japanese love thier merchandise, I've noticed that. LOL...it was inevitable.

personaly i love it when they come up with crap like this. at least hes doing something. beside anything he has come out anyone will buy. and like someone said its not all yoshiki its his managment. cross promo with events like that it gets X a lil more known here in the US. i love the hello kitty doll. i will get one. same goes for his jewlery and anything else. its all good and the only reason people talk crap on it is cause its expensive. if it wasnt you would all be buying it. let the man do what he wants he deserves it.
