Here at Homicidols.com, we like to celebrate the musical side of the alt-idol world. Sure, some of our favorites are occasionally (often!) photographed in a few well-placed handkerchiefs, but we look past that to the thundering grindcore that they produce with the rest of their time.
One such instance is Tsukino Moa, prominent member of the Alice Project‘s Armor Girls and, by extension, Kamen Joshi (who are ready to go in the 2016 Homicidols Corenament!). Moa is known for three things — being tiny, being a model, and being a kick-ass bassist.
Moa Tsukino from Kamen Joshi, receives the first prototype of the ESP/Edwards E-FR-MOA Custom Bass Guitar, joining Syu of Galneryus and Kaoru and Toshiya of Dir En Grey on the ESP artist roster. Even if your not a fan, that’s a pretty big deal for an idol.
Guitar makers don’t just hand over custom designs to nobodies, even in Japan, where an idol holding your axe is a good way to sell a lot of them. Moa got some respect.
Hell, just look at this thing!
Tsukino Moa inspires my own bass work. Not so much because I admire the way she plays, which is fine, but because if a person who’s literally half my size can handle that hog, I should be able to, too.
