Worst/Funny/WTF Album Covers (Japan Edition)
#1
As the title says - this thread is for the worst or just most messed up Japanese covers around. There have been plenty of threads elsewhere dealing with western bands, so please leave them out of this thread. It would be my preference to not have extremely disgusting covers here. But if you must - and this goes for anything that could get you in trouble at work - use spoiler tags and say NSFW (and give a reason why). It would be useful if you put the band and album title in as well (just so one can search this thread to avoid duplicates).

I'll start:

オモイメグラス (Omoi Megurasu) - HARLEQUIN

Dunno about you guys, but this is just wrong! Tongue

MAMADRIVE - うらはら

NSFW (cartoon gore/nudity/wtf). Seriously, WTF?!?

I kinda love that cracked CD case one, it's an interesting art idea.

Terra Rosa's Honesty is a great album, but the artwork is just, uh, strange. What is that flame figure supposed to be? WTF?!?!?

This artwork always kinda bugged me, partially because at one point it was the only image that would show up when looking for a decent picture of Hideaki Nakama, which this is far from:

Or this one... "Hey, we'll just overexpose a photo of ourselves and slap some text in a terrible font over top and call it our album cover!"

Now that you mention it, I never really thought of how weird that art is, what the heck is the burning thing supposed to be and what relation does it hold to the album lol. I like the Terra Rosa logo in the sand idea though, that would have made a far better focus for the image.

This is funny, the album cover and track titles are such an obvious imitation of X-Japan's Vanishing Vision, and the band is called Speed Metal Sound.  I have no idea what this sounds like though.

most likely can be considered NSFW

Oh, that's a touhou/doujin group, take a look at some of Iron Attack's album artwork, the earlier stuff often parodied famous album art. This band is probably doing stylistic tributes to X-Japan in their style if I had to guess, rather than ripping them off. I think the art is kinda funny as they're anime, then you've got the guy with the crazy smile in the background, and the "waifu" hair ribbons on the victim.

Undead Corporation did the same thing. Like taking In Flames "Colony" and throwing a bunch of anime characters on it haphazardly lol

Unlucky Morpheus also did similar with Jealousy, that one was neat hearing Fuki's vocals on a style tribute like "Jealousy of Silence".

WANIMA's Are You Coming? has one of my favorite "I don't know how to feel about this" covers. Please forgive me that they're a punk band lol.
