Jealkb (ジュアルケービー juarukeebii) is a Japanese visual kei rock band made up of seven members, all of them comedians including London Boots Ichi-go Ni-go's Atsushi Tamura. Their debut single Metronome hit number 1 on the indies Oricon chart and sold out the same day.[1][2] The band's name itself is a joke. If you simply move the "ビー" to the front of their name, it becomes "visual kei" (ビージュアルケー biijuarukee).

Dunch is also in the supergroup Karasu, that formed in 2009 with Tatsurou (Mucc), Hiroto (Alice Nine), Mizuki (Sadie) and Kenzo (Ayabie).[3]
