I won't be online here as much as I used to. You can still contact me through twitter.

To a guy who headbanged in front of me in the concert crowd,
Goddammit that shampoo scent is crazy good, I should have asked you the brand, it's going to haunt me for the rest of my life.
Vocalist K from Pay money To my Pain
Pay Money to My Pain (stylized as Pay money To my Pain and abbreviated as P.T.P.) was a Japanese alternative rock/metal band. All of the band's lyrics are in English.
K, real name Kei Goto (後藤慶), was often in poor physical condition and suffered from mental health issues (he talked about depression in some of his songs). On January 10, 2013, Pay Money to My Pain announced that K died on December 30, 2012 at age 31 due to acute heart failure at his home in Yokohama.
In December 2013, Pay money To my Pain played their last concert, entitled "From Here to Somewhere" before disbanding.
Wouldn't be surprised if nobody here knows this guy or the band, but this is one of the most influential celebrity deaths for me. I absolutely adore their music and messages in Kei's lyrics. I still can't get over this, even though it's been a while, his death destroyed me. He also contributed to the success of my favorite band by getting them to meet the right people.
You might have heard their music in:
- "Bury", from the album After You Wake Up, was featured as the opening theme to the anime One Outs.
- Weight of my Pride was featured in episode 12 of the anime series Hajime no Ippo: Rising.
- Respect for the Dead Man was also used as the theme song for the Nobunagun anime.
I don't want to make this post longer, so if anyone is interested the official announcement of Kei's death along with some words from the band members are on the official P.T.P website's news, dated 2013.01.10 (scroll down to see English).
To be honest I didn't expect much but was still a little disapointed. It was silly, but not silly enough and Swagomoto's running joke just doesn't get me. But humor is subjective and I guess I've been spoiled by some other shows. The VA cast is great, though.
Not jumping the hype train, but will probably give Sakamoto desu ga? a try. Hopefully it'll distract me from the lack of Gintama, since it's done by the same director.
edit: ah, and MAL got some pretty neat updates lately. You can even browse the seasonal anime and stuff.
The latest OVA episode was really good.
I knew it was gonna end soon, but it still feels sudden, especially considering how heavy the latest arcs are and how many comedy arcs they skipped. I guess they just couldn't hold the TV spot much longer.
MAL only counts season 7, which has 51 eps. But yeah, they aren't going to animate it anymore, at least for now. I hope they return to it as soon as the manga is finished, which is probably later this year or next year max.
It's ended once again, but I'm gonna take pleasure in small things before FMAB fans come and downvote it.
I think Dead Leaves beats all of the stuff you mentioned, including FLCL. Fight me.
