Zenkimi’s Just Rolling ‘Em out Now, with Friends!

Well, we’ve had Mashiro solo and what might be the #1 track from Zenbu Kimi no Sei Da’s upcoming release (I’m not calling it a single anymore), and it’s already time for another track!

Welcome to the party, Komachi!

“Come here”. All right! Continue reading

The Corenament’s Elite Eight Surpass Expectations — Who’ll Be Left Standing?

Well, gang, the Sweet 16 went down about how I sort of expected it to, and our regional finals are big ol’ mixed bag — two slugfests between region favorites, and two whodathunkit matchups besides.

I won’t belabor the point; the Elite Eight, the final bits of idol throwing down for a coveted spot in the Final Four, have … earned it? Sure. This round will run for the next two days, Friday and Saturday, with votes closing at midnight Saturday.

A quick word of apology, though, before we begin: I had intended to make the last last four rounds of the Corenament a more interesting affair than a straight up-and-down vote, but the bombing and whatnot sort of spoiled things. But that’s okay. I bet the final crowning of a champion will be full of surprises!

Ready to go? Continue reading

I Find Things: It’s Time for Li-V-RAVE

Welcome to the world of stumbling over stuff on Twitter:

This is Li-V-RAVE (Twitter). They’re super brand new, like a month old, but I’m digging this limited stuff so far primarily because one of the members used to be a member of something else and was randomly in my Twitter feed and I don’t know who she is but that’s okay, now there’s Li-V-RAVE!

I Bet ayumikurikamaki’s Latest Is Great; If Only We Could See It

H/t to Phillter for pointing out that ayukuma released the video for their upcoming single today; thumbs down to whoever decided to publish the thing without availability in the United States or EU. But if you can see and hear, I bet it’s pretty good!

Somebody will have a torrent available later, I’m sure; I’ll add if/when I can; you can also view on Facebook

Zenbu Kimi no Sei Da’s Lead Track from Their New Single Is Available

The other day, Zenbu Kimi no Sei Da surprised us with a solo song by Mashiro (accompanied by Yotsu, but still); today, we get another song; at least, I think it’s the lead track:

It’s on the usual two-hour restriction, so you know what to do. Continue reading

The Newest Ladybaby Is Almost There

I didn’t have a good opportunity to get this added yesterday, but Terry (not John!) did, and you all may as well get your material that way. And it’s Thursday Hurtsday, and why not shoehorn in a little death pop for old time’s sake? My only complaint: TIFKAL needs to cool it with the piped-in man-voice, as it sounds increasingly ridiculous. We’re going to get that with Dead Life Lolita; time for Rie and Rei to move on.

Another day another YouTube notification……and look who it is the ladybaby girls! feels like only yesterday we got to enjoy their MV for the B side “Easter Bunny” from their next single. Now they are back with the main dish “Pelo” already! an boiii does this song have some nice guitar licks (pun intended)

This Thursday Hurtsday Is All about the Attitude

The thing about idols … look, I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: Idols can do anything. And sometimes that means idoling on top of having a day job in a maid cafe — they go together like peanut butter and jelly. It’s fine. And oftentimes said idoling while maid cafeing means that you’re idoling as an extension of said maid cafe, which means being all tradol and kawaii and stuff, which, okay, fine, it is what it is.

But then sometimes management goes “You know what we need? A friggin’ rock angle.”

Yes! Continue reading

I’m Afraid That Ophetan Is Going to Run out of PVs Someday

It’s a new weekly occurrence for my favorite solo underground idol, Ophelia 20mg — last time out, she released a trailer for her upcoming EP/album doodad; this week, it’s back to short versions of full videos for … is she going to do one per song on the record? Holy moses.

Google says that the title of this number is “poison retrenched.” I don’t even care if that isn’t right; that’s a great title.

Actually got an update on the title! Thanks @microBun!

Happy Thursday. The Hurtsday portion will be along in a bit.

For Indie Idol Wednesday, I’m Finally Doing Bonnou Paradox

All right, I’ve now officially seen Bonnou Paradox (Twitter) referenced enough times that I guess I should look to see what the deal is. I know this: They’re newish, they’re “hard rock,” they go with a duality theme and they’re perfect for Indie Idol Wednesday.

This is what they look and sound like:


They also get filmed at odd angles!

Oh Sweet, mistress Released Their First MV

Happy Indie Idol Wednesday! I actually have another piece that I’m sharing, more on point, more of a discovery, but. You guys remember mistress, right? They’ve been percolating around for the last few months, sort of slowly building up the way that idols should do, putting out barely SFW t-shirts and getting their first EP ready. And now, finally, to promote it, their first MV:


How many idol songs have been called something along the lines of “DECiSION” over the years?
