ROKKYUU [roh-kyoo] - noun 1. Pronunciation of the Japanese numbers  六 roku (six) and 九 kyuu (nine). '69' when combined, for interesting connotations. 2. From the Queen song, 'We Will Rock You.' Often written as Arabic numerals by Japanese schoolgirls during taiiku-kai.

ROKKYUU Magazine is an independent, English-language rock magazine that brings visual kei and j-rock artists from across the spectrum to a worldwide audience.

Edgy and eclectic, vinyl-smooth and anachronistic, ROKKYUU follows the music of countless visual bands such as MUCC, DaizyStripper, Exist Trace, and Kaggra.

ROKKYUU debuted in January of 2009, running for its first year as a beta publication. The magazine covered bands like Versailles Philharmonic Quintet, festivals like V-Rock Fest 2009, and events like the Sixh. Fashion Show and Live.
