Yes they are a band where all the members are regional mascots, or go Toichi chara. They are also a legit band who play their own instruments and write or co-write many of their songs.

Apparently the outside world is slowly awakening to the awesomeness of Charamel. If you don’t know Charamel (pronounced like the candy), they are a heavy metal band from Japan. This is their first music video. youtu.be/YkIw3cjoSdE

But what really killed me was the commute from Long Island. I had to leave the house at 6:45am to make it to a 9am class.

Would a band like Charamel exist outside Japan? Maybe. Would Charamel exist without Funassyi? Probably not. There are other mascot bands, but none rock as seriously as Charamel. pic.twitter.com/FeRPVbf1tM

Not to be forgotten is Busshaa, aka Red Funassyi, who is Nyangostar’s backup at drums. Busshaa is not a bad drummer either. The World of Funassyi is surreal and wonderful. pic.twitter.com/W2H8Pc9qi5

You may have seen this video where Kumanomae joined Charamel on stage. He was just a guest though, not a member of the band. youtu.be/Z1XXSLzf148

Charamel has a record deal with Universal Music and have toured annually since 2017. Here is the cover of the DVD for their 2018. Yep in Japan, Funassyi is the big star, the name draw of the band. pic.twitter.com/gMhOU1tQiR

The guitarist Akkuma is from Sapporo, Hokkaido. He is a devilish bear who has an angelic sister/partner called Koakkuma. Yes he plays the guitar for real. pic.twitter.com/2o0B9ieSZS

The ace drummer Nyangostar is probably the best known member outside Japan. Nyangostar is a hybrid apple and cat, and hails from Kuroishi, Aomori prefecture. pic.twitter.com/rxZ3WN1Bui

But I still wonder sometimes how different my life might have been if my parents had let me stay in Japan w/my grandma when they moved to the US when I was 16. I would probably have tried to get into a public uni. And after that, who knows. Oh well.

Well anyway, years later I went back to school while working full time to CUNY (Hunter) and that was way more affordable (payable in full! By me only!) and the professors/instructors were IMO just as good as NYU.

Anyway, what with the commute, the pt job, the battlin’ parents at home and the frustration of not enough computer lab time, I sure didn’t feel very privileged.

My Twitters is filled with recommended tweets that claim I engaged in tweets about blankety-blank. I don’t recall or even know who/what the blankety-blanks are.
