I got a genuine kick out of this, you guys. See, I’ve … look, for reasons I don’t fully understand, I feel invested in all things Mugen Regina, especially since they came back to life. I’ve kept on blast, just waiting for the moment when they put out an MV or something, because I want to revel in that moment (and then blog it to death, because blog).
This isn’t that, yet, but it’s still pretty neat:

See, this is a good way to keep your distance fans engaged — show them the process, and additionally let your members do a little bit of running commentary on it.
At least, I think that’s what’s happening. The machine translation suggests it. And it’s a nice little story!
Here they are talking up an appearance:
But another upshot on this Mugen Regina is the way that they’re really different from the version that, not quite two years ago, seemed like they might tear it up a little. But that somewhat adult iteration ultimately stagnated, then Haruno-san left to do her own thing and the group just sort of fizzled out. This time around, the idols are more typically idol (or so it seems), and management looks like they stepped up the production values a little.
I’m not saying that this Mugen Regina’s going to be the next STARMARIE or anything, just that it’s nice to see an idol project get new legs and new life and feel like they might do some good things.
Happy Monday, by the way.
