For instance, “but makes terrible fashion choices.” Why, Japanese people?
And some decent tunes aside, I just never felt all that compelled to do anything. That being said, she just released an EP with a lead track that’s frankly pretty darn good:
There’s also this trailer version for the whole EP, which honestly sounds like it’s probably worth your time.
If I’m being honest (and I try to be), among the classically styled metal idols, the ones who are more in the Dio vein than Sepultura, I might have to give it to Mai here; much like Fruitpochette’s, her idol blends really seamlessly into the rest of the music. And while I’m not as familiar with the Kyoto scene as with Tokyo or Osaka (or even Sapporo, apparently) and am not familiar with her management, she’s riding a 2.5 year run of good resource support to get this far, so somebody believes in her.
Which is totally fair! She has the voice to make it work.
