vkgy is creating a visual kei library

Hello! I'm John (a.k.a. inartistic), creator of the visual kei library, vkgy! I'm a veteran vk fan, and am passionate about expanding the availability of high-quality information about the genre.





vkgy (pronounced “v-k-g-y” or “v-cage”) is a library about visual kei. It has newsprofiles, histories, discographies, and more. It features data about thousands of visual kei artists and releasesーincluding exclusive information and images that can't be found anywhere else!

vkgy is also a community! Members can comment, add information, create their own visual kei avatar, rate and collect releases, export lists, and tons more. It's integrated with Mp3tag to make tagging your collection easy, and there are fun features like Mystery Artist of the Day and Flyer of the Day.


Due to the huge scale of vkgy (4,000+ artists, 15,000+ images, and over 1 million pieces of data in total), it costs a certain amount to run. In addition to the financial cost, there's a certain time cost associated with the completely-custom backend.

As the owner and sole developer, I pay for everything out of pocket and carve time away from my main job to work on the siteーand I'm happy to continue doing so! That said, any bit of financial backing is extremely helpful, and ensures that the site can continue to grow.


  • For $5 or more per month, your account at vkgy will be upgraded to VIP status. VIP status brings tons of benefits, including high-res scans, early access, an exclusive Discord channel, and moreーincluding occasional, time-limited, physical rewards (see samples below). See sidebar for more information.
  • For $15 or more per month, you gain all VIP rewards, plus you can advertise your site or project on the main page. See sidebar for more information.
  • If you just want to show that you appreciate the site, donate $1 or more per month and your vkgy username will be added to the special Thanks section on the main page.
