Spring is almost here! I've been trying out some new editing techniques to help reduce the artifacts produced in an image when enlarged via scanning. Please let me know on @Twitter if you like how this style looks!

I've started doing editing on my commute into work, since it is a 45 minute train ride with minimal cell service. Trying to make the best use of my time, so it doesn't feel wasted. As a result, that probably means I'm going to be updating more frequently.

Updates haven't been happening super often because for a while, I was without a scanner. I just got a new one, and have access to Photoshop at work, so I plan on finally getting more of my collection up on here for people to enjoy. That being said, I did push a few updates through and didn't update this listing here.
Today's updates include:
- Gossip - Newborn (s)
- Cuartet - Deep Bonds of Ogre (s)

Be sure to follow me on Twitter as well for occasional updates and random sharings related to visual-kei: @ZombieXJuice!
Well, it has been over a year since I've lasted updated. I haven't really had the time to do a whole lot with the site for many reasons, as 2016 was an incredibly busy year for me in my personal life, but the past few weeks I've gotten back into it. My biggest change is that I've added icons for all of the scans -- this was no small feat, as there were a lot to go through! Now, each artist is broken up by release and features a small preview image of what the underlying image is. I've also added a few more CDs to the roster that I had edited months ago, but just never got around to putting up. I believe there is another 1 or 2 CDs still floating around in cyber space that I need to piece together here for you guys.
Additionally, I've added Google Analytics to each page. Just curious to see what kind of traffic I'll generate once I start promoting and updating more often. (I always say that each update and it never happens lmao). Speaking of which--I no longer have a scanner, so adding scans is going to be difficult, if not impossible, until I get a new one. I could start accepting other contributions, but I have never had anyone reach out to me asking to share their content. Since I don't want to never update again, I may start contributing more lyrics since I can do that without needing additional hardware.
I have also set up a Twitter account for this site, where I will post more frequent updates. Please be sure to follow @ZombieXJuice!
Finally got around to doing an update! I had some scans done a while ago but never posted or edited them, and I just did a ton of scans yesterday. This update brings you CDs from D'espairsRay, E'm~Grief~, Orgel, Shazna, and Gokiburi! There's also been an effort into organizing some of the old content--I've been trying my best to label things correctly, but there have been many times where I'm not quite sure what release things come from of what people's names are. If there are any mistakes, please contact me. Additionally, I keep buying CDs, so the new content will be coming for quite some time. It will be a mix of new and old stuff, so remember to check back every so often!
Been scanning like crazy: I have scanned most of my demotapes and added them to the images page. This includes updates and additions to: Aliene Ma'riage, Das:Vasser, Misery, Weeds Of', Laybial, Syndrome, -Phantom-, Flare, Fer;rite, ewig≒zait, ФFlairФ, Eze:queL, 螺旋, and Luna de Miel. Phew!
Let me know what you think: I apologize that some images are fairly blurry, but that is because they're quite small in real life and were not meant to be viewed at such a large size when printed. Also, a lot of tapes use really low quality ink and paper and that becomes much more apparent when holding a physical copy instead of viewing a digital source file for the album art.
x Update | Introduction | Restart
Hello hello hello! After almost 3 years, Zombie Juice is finally getting an update in more ways than one! To start, the site is now hosted on by Inartistic on the same server as his current anything-Kisaki-related encyclopedia We Love UCP. This doesn't really affect you, as a viewer, but the url has changed to be called image-complex. What it does mean, though, is that this site won't go down because someone forgot to pay for her domain! Secondly, as you've probably noticed, Arithmetica hasn't really had the time to add to this site like she used to. As of January of this year, she has passed along ownership of updates to me, Seraphim. Now, I'm sure she'll add something new someday, but she's usually preoccupided with things more important than bad Japanese rock bands that sold 15 cds in 6 months (like her comic career: check that out here). And lastly, I am currently giving this site a bit of a markup facelift. There may be a few style changes here and there, but I don't plan on changing much in terms of the overall look and feel so much as making the code to display the site a bit more modern. With that is a planned overhaul of the scans page so it is a little more organized, and of course, more content.
Thus far, I've added scans for the cds / tapes / flyers I own from グリーヴァ, Deadly Sanctuary, and Kar'MariA. I'm also working on adding some more stuff from 凛 -the end of corruption world-, but a lot of things I own by them are unopened. I have a few other CDs like that as well (such as Versailles' Jubilee, for example). I hope my scans are of high quality and are legible! I try my best to edit them afterwards in Photoshop to get rid of the dust and color correct as needed.
I like how it has been over a year since I have updated! I admit I have abandoned my project to scan everything I own and quit my old secret project, I just don't have as much free time and my interest has dwindled. Instead I am focusing on somethng completely unrelated to music. I still have some cool items I want to scan but perhaps another time. I'm still pretty active on the Internet so come on by and say hi!
Hello! Just a small update! I added some Cuartet photos! Check it out! It's from a photoset I recently acquired and they're pretty cool! Next week Ru:natic's and Vallquar's new releases come out, did anyone else order them? I ordered my Ru:natic single from the webshop and thinking of adding a photoset to my order!
I'm still thinking out my secret plans for my big 2011 update. However with the rate I am going at, I don't think my big 2011 update will happen until 2012 LOL! However to keep things active I have a small scan update! I scanned the mini album Aftergrow from the band Mars. It comes with a booklet with some impressive shots of the band members! Very cool! Please take a look! What do you think?
Hello! It is now 2011! How has the new year been for you? Did anyone buy the new Vasalla CD RISE OF INSANITY? I know the dollar is doing very poorly against the Yen but it's very good! I'm glad they're having this short revival! In any case I have been very busy and I know I haven't had any updates since summer! :-( However I have big plans for 2011! Look forward to some more updates!
Hello! Hello! Time for another small update! Qliffot sent me more lyrics for the remaining Eliphas Levi songs but I will have those up by the end of the week. August is a very eventful month for me!
I will do my best to keep up with my little site! I have so much to scan!
That's not even half of what I need to scan! D: I want to share this all with everyone! So in the mean time, here is a quick update with some VELVET EDEN scans! You can tell these where printed off of someone's home computer or went through the local mini mart's Xerox machine. It's cute! I am not a very big VELVET EDEN fan but I did really enjoy the new song from their PV on their Myspace. Maybe I'll keep an eye on them more. Are you a big VELVET EDEN fan? Anyway, please take a look!
Hello! It's been awhile since I've done an update. I still have a lot of material pending to be scanned but I just don't have a lot of time at the moment. Lots of demo tapes and some really cool KEY PARTY omnibuses!! However Qliffot was nice enough to provide romaji and Japanese lyrics from Eliphas Levi's first album リデルの赤い書物 and for 華麗なるDの惨劇! Thank you so much! If you have never listened to Eliphas Levi I highly suggest it, they're a very cool band with wonderful music. Please check out the lyric section and thank you again Qliffot for all your hard work!
There is also a small update in the links section under Fan Sites. I did not plan to link blogs but I decided to link two that do their best to stand out from other blogs on the web :)
I hope all is going well for most of you out there. I decided to scan and upload an Omnibus of mine called L.S.D. It was released in 1993 and features ten different bands. D:E:A:D, KILL=SLAYD, Little Vampire, HYSTERIC, VILE, サムライ・ブロンディーズ, 黒蝪蝶, E.G.O, SAKRUN and MELTING POT. Enjoy! :)
Today it's FÉRIA, Chateau La Tour and Verfe～gorl! I use to be a really big Yuga fan and really adored DEViL KiTTY but I've found now that these days I prefer Chateau La Tour over DEViL KiTTY. I also included the slip inside the CD case from the Chateau singles, not as much text and maybe someone out there would want them. Now I need to decide if I want to take apart this old Shoxx magazine...
More La'Mule?? Yep! I scanned my 結界～ガラス神経ト自我境界～ (Kekkai ~ Garasu Shinkei To Jigakyoukai~) photobook. Check it out! :D
Most have heard by now that KISAKI has started a new band, while I enjoyed Phantasmagoria and a little bit of Syndrome. I really love MIRAGE! Since KISAKI is in the news I thought I would uploaded scans from Risk en Eve and Arcadia. I also uploaded a big batch of La'Mule scans, bunch of stuff from Shoxx, Fool's Mate, Vicious, V-shot etc. Check them out! :D
Ku continues to be awesome and sent me lyrics for 降臨 (Kourin) from Aliene Maφriage, check it out! I also upped some Madeth gray'll and emmurée scans.
x Images and Lyrics
New scans have been uploaded. I had difficulties scanning Ma'ria from Aliene Maφriage, the images of the members are printed on glossy material and it doesn't come out well. I don't know if it did damage to my scanner (laughs)! But I did scan the inside with the lyrics. Aliene Maφriage had such over the top fun releases. I have also uploaded ケ(兎) (Ke (usagi)) and ト☆キ☆メ☆キ (to*ki*me*ki) from Missalina Rei, along with a nice big batch from Vizell.
Also Ku is awesome and sent me translation for another song from Aliene Maφriage. Go check it out! :D
Lyrics for Puppet Master from Phobia and BLACK JACK AGE from Aliene Maφriage have been uploaded. Check them out! Lyrics provided by my buddy Ku. Check out her translation blog! I also fixed some links with some pictures in the image gallery.
43 new scans have been uploaded. Magazines and flyers have proven to be much easier to scan and edit then CD booklets, so just a quick upload of some Vasalla, La'Mule, Phobia and Missalina Rei scans. Check them out! :)
Second update already? I admit I'm tad bit excited finally launching my scan site. I've done some small minor tweaks to the website and I'm also working on getting more scans up. It's a little daunting! But look forward to more scans from Phobia, Missalina Rei, Aliene Ma'riage, Madeth gray'll, Vizell, Vasalla and La'Mule.
About time eh? This has been an on and off project for sometime now but now it's finally up onto the Internet. I still have quite a bit of my collection that needs to be scanned, in any case please visit the about section for more information. For any comments, questions or if you find any errors send me an email. Thanks!
This layout was created by me and it features Kyouka from the band Aliene Ma'riage.
