These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
Cliché Storm: The lyrics of the second verse of the song "Ghetto Machine"note credited to someone named Stephan Galfas, presumably an American begin as follows:
This is because Taiji gained most of his fame from his first major band, which he'd stayed with longer.
Taiji had showed up at every memorial show for Munetaka, and his song "Black Widow" is still sometimes performed live by the band (now as a tribute to him as well). It is also most likely that his personal problems were why he left the band, as this was around the time his life made its turn for the worse.
Harsher in Hindsight: Pandemonium, especially the song "Bloody Doom," but pretty much the entire album. Released in November 2001, and reading like a rant about the entire decade to follow 2001 and the War On Terror.
