I saw a flyer for "卍LINE", stating that there is a release tour for a new album going on. In Asia using a swastika is not weird, but being from Europe it always surprises me a bit... And this time they also have a "mein floor" and other German sounding things, haha.


  1. I believe that symbol has an Asian origin.

    1. Yes, the origin is Asian, so here people keep using it with no bad connotations. In Europe, it has a very negative connotation nowadays, so it is just surprising to me when I see it :-)
