The TeddyLoid + Aina the End collaboration has borne more fruit, amigos, which we knew was going to happen but finally came upon us the other day. How, uh … how do you feel about it?
Go ahead and raise your hand if you’re a BiSH fan. Most of you, right. Good for you! Literally! Because at a typically inconvenient-for-outside-of-Japan time on Wednesday, they’re going to be doing a live on Nico Nico in honor of the release of GiANT KiLLERS:

Welcome back to the Monday Match Game, friends! Yes, it is here and only here where you’ll be asked to pit idol against idol or idol against completely attenuated pun-based foe for the purposes of merriment and/or me aggregating information on how better to connect idols with people who don’t like idols yet. It’s great fun!
Last week, Spark faced Spark (but not Sparks) in the re-kick-starting of this weekly ritual; Spark won. This week, I turn to something immediately contemporary and fun, something that has tongues wagging and throats chuckling and guns blazing.
I speak of course of this morning’s big MV, the latest from the rapidly ascending BiSH. Ascending … perhaps toward the clouds? To a mythical realm where giants may dwell? MAYBE EVEN USING A BEANSTALK?! That’s right! How would these latest giant killers fare when pitted not against the thing they’re clearly out to slay, but against others of their ilk? Continue reading
That previous teaser was never going to be enough; BiSH dropped the trailer for GiANT KiLLERS a little while ago, and it (the new tracks, at least) is a scorcher:

Lovely. Continue reading
Well, amigos, it appears that now that I re-cracked the seal on BiSH a few weeks ago, they’re back to being regularly in the rotation. Which is great, because BiSH is great!
I was being a little lazy on the updates about BiSH’s upcoming EP because reasons, and leave it to John to have the goods.
I have one issue with this: The re-recordings with the updated membership; how dare you write Hug Me out of that history?
Otherwise, I don’t buy a ton of idol stuff myself, but I’m all over this stash.
Here we are about one month away from the release of BiSH’s new offering. Oh, and does it sounds like a good one. I always get excited for new things from BiSH because they are always so good. So, lets take a look at what we have on offer this time.
Hot damn, you guys, this is good times. I used the occasion of BiSH’s announcing this show (with live broadcast!) to complain about their having been quiet for a while — as truly a First World problem as has ever existed — it was with a generally low expectation for anything really coming of it. That was stupid! Of course people were going to record it!
This sucker is worth settling in for; I’ve seen my share of BiSH lives over the past couple of years now, but this might be my personal favorite stage of theirs, starting off with a bunch of the songs of theirs that I hold in highest esteem.
CHAOS PARTY, indeed
Do forgive me for pulling a little WACK overload today, gang; it’s less my fault than an accident, and I’d ordinarily not be all over these couple of points for a regular post, but look: It’s been a minute since the last time we BiSHed! And now that I turn my gaze in their direction, hell, they’ll probably release a video on Friday or something.
Anyway! Much like their forebears/inspirations/sisters in BiS, they have a NICO NICO live come up, too, and in just a week:

We’ve seen them do these shows before as part of their IDOL vs. VISUAL thing, and it’s pretty cool; this CHAOS PARTY will probably be worth the price of your subscription.
