You hit the bullseye, baby (You hit the bullseye, baby) Now I’m into you crazy (You know ya hit the mark) Don’t know how you got me started (I’m not an easy target, HIT IT!) (You hit the bullseye) You hit my heart
Were you right, was I wrong Were you weak, was I strong, yeah Both of us broken Caught in a moment We lived and we loved And we hurt and we jumped, yeah But the planets all aligned When you looked into my eyes And just like that The chemicals react The chemicals react
I’m sleeping on the other side of bed
hoping it might make me forget
the wrapped-up-in-you nights
and my best dreams coming to life.
When no nightmare could ever compare
to waking up without you there.
I will admit, if you admit it It’s harder than we both thought It’s easier to fall apart Look where we are I can forgive it, I can’t forget it You left me here with all these scars and you can’t deny the hardest part I’m not in your arms
We’re more hurt than we appear The world will never know We both have tasted tears, my dear You’re denying what I say Don’t act like it’s okay Cuz it’s not okay
Buck-Tick in Manga, 002, The Raving Warrior: Suima-kun
1993~1996, By Nakagawa Katsumi
This manga is quite famous among BT fans, but it’s kinda difficult to find it online. I found it in Mangareborm but when I tried to register, it told me something went wrong. Very unfortuantely, Japanese online manga sites removed the postscripts and side comments.
If you know somewhere else to find it, especailly vol.4, please tell me.
First, there is an introduction I copied from Mangareborn:
Welcome to planet Goo, home of the Suima Clan, tall beings that need 23 hours of sleep a day or they become weak.
Unfortunately, Goo’s ruler, Prince Brillian, has been overcome with a mysterious insomniatic illness! The sexually robust and dazzlingly handsome General Ketsukarl must collect 1000 people’s worth of ‘Sleepy Sleep’ energy to return the prince to his normal sleeping patterns!
Join General Ketsukarl on his frantic, crazy search in this hilariously sexy(?) comedy!
So what’s special about it?
The answer is, Sakurai-san is a recurring charater, as (almost) himself.
In chapter 1, the aliens came to earth, found two members of a band called “Tick-Tack”, voaclist Tarou (Sakurai) and main composer Ichirou (Imai) recording at 2am
“I get this stuff foisted off on me because you’re late with your songs, Ichirou.” “My bad.”
Acchan nearly got kissed by an alien
Tick-Tack’s album release was delayed because Tarou fell asleep during the recording under the magic of the alien. You can see posters of “Sanft Ballet” (Soft Ballet) and “W-AGE” (M-AGE).
Soon, Sakurai, Imai and Hoshino(?) appeared again, they were on the way from one bar to another as usual.
(This is the official(perhaps) Chinese version published in Taiwan and Hongkong, but the translator wasn’t very conscientious because s/he couldn’t even figure out what an “Acchan” was, and made mistakes like writting “YELLOW MONKEY” as “YEELLW。MONKEY”)
Postscript of vol.1, Darker Than Darkness Acchan
Nakagawa-san later told us “Nanri-chan” was an indie rock singer and Sakurai cosplayer.
Then, in vol.2, Acchan appeared again, he gave the aliens some CDs, aliens took him to the 60s Tokyo.
Then, he appeared in the postcript of vol.2
Then in vol.3, Acchan with short hair…
And there’s a character named “S. Fujioka”, Nakagawa-san admitted that she took the name from Fujioka, Gunma, where BT was born.
She also said things like she got a front row seat ticket at BT’s Budoukan concert, begged readers to send her videos of Acchan’s TV appearance. There are other bands’ names in those books as well.
its 5am and i’m forcing myself ot go to sleep bu t just kno that the next hour at least i’m gonna be thinking abt that mag boy without posting it and saving you at least 10 more insomniatic declarations of lov 4 him bc i can vaguely realize how embarrassing that is in this half conscious state and also it’d be v repetitive gnight folks
