BiSH: The Music Video: The Trailer

With BiSH having a major single out next month, getting a music video was inevitable. Unfortunately, we have no music video yet. However, we do have a trailer for a music video:

Personally, I never saw the point in trailers for things like music videos. But I can’t lie that the piano notes at the end gave me chills!

Coinciding with the trailer, we also got some CD covers. Continue reading

Inside the Homicidol Mind: Two Translated BiSH Interviews, Anybody?

We are blessed, friends, blessed indeed, for there are those among us who are not only multilingual, but who are generous and willing to take content — lyrics, articles, interviews, etc. — and give it a little bit of a work so that it’s digestible for us, the English-addled masses. And over the past couple of days, we’ve gotten two very big gifts in the form of interviews with BiSH’s Ayuni D (in the ShuuPlay News) and Atsuko (IDOL and READ).

First up! Hashiyasume. As far as she goes, I actually think that Atsuko is now the only member of BiSH who I’ve never had occasion to feature via interview or other subject matter. And that’s not for want of her being cool in her way — she is! — it’s just a question of access and timing and things. And when Plain Sugar Subs tweeted out an Atsuko special from IDOL and READ, I was all over it.

I joined a different group but something feels not right, and I believe the same thing will happen to the group so, I decided to take on a hiatus until I found a group that is really suitable for me. I resumed my life as a part-timer for around a year, getting fatter from all the food given ( LOL ), and then I found out about … BiSH. I took the audition for the 1st generation because I believe that BiSH is my chance to be a star. I would probably become a total loser if i don’t make anything out of this, so seriously I was like; “This is my last chance.”

Go read the whole thing:

And then come back for the second half of the double feature! Continue reading

Let the Wild Speculation Begin! The WACK Three-way Auditions

Last week, I made the unwise decision to notification-follow Watanabe on Twitter. At first, I was really just looking for new stuff about the BiSathon (so we could do our own!), but that wasn’t panning out and I was bored, but then came one of the ominous “something will happen at 22:00!” tweets, and … well, given that BiSH was the only part of the company that he hadn’t molested in a while, let’s just say that a quick RT from that group’s account had me convinced that the Captain herself was graduating immediately and had set the rest of the roster on fire.

This is no way invalidates that fear!

A Full Marathon of Friday Fun

Kerrie time! We originally had different plans for today, and we’ll get to them, but yesterday’s announcement got folks all up in a froth, and this seemed like a much cooler idea.

Happy Friday, everyone! Last week, Hanako-san destroyed things, and it was violent as expected. Lets have a look back at her trail of destruction.


Speaking of things we’d like Hanako-san to destroy, Watanabe has only gone and pissed off the fanbase (and very likely BiS themselves) with his latest stunt, in which he merged all the horrible things he’s inflicted onto his idols over the course of his career into one big human rights violation lawsuit waiting to happen. And the fandom (myself included tbh) are furious. Continue reading

BiSH’s Cesarean Section on Big and Little Screens

Man, this would be really exciting if I were in Shinjuku: BiSH is releasing the DVD of their Less than SEX tour final next week, and the whole thing is going to be narrowcast (but HUGE) on the big-ass Yunika Vision screen that we hear so much about:

For now, we’ll have to content ourselves with watching this-here trailer for the DVD, being gobsmacked, hating people who live in Tokyo and wishing that the whole thing were actually just “Hoshi ga” like we thought for a hot second when the video first started. Continue reading

That New Year Premium Party Was Awesome, Wasn’t It?

There’s not a lot to say to sell this one — the New Year Premium Party was a ridiculous three-day event spanning multiple venues in Tokyo (in addition to that COUNTDOWN JAPAN thing that ayumikurikamaki was part of). I’m just grabbing video based on what showed up in my recommendations; if you know of more from other days or venues or groups, please share them in the comments.

Osaka Shunkashuto!

BiS!

And of Course BiSH Has a New Single Rolling Soon, Too

Jeez, you’d swear that the first day of a new year were some kind of prime opportunity to make big announcements about your idol project or something.

March 22. “Promise the Star.” And … unique gifts. Continue reading

My Gift to You from Someone Else: Have a Whole Playlist of Translated BiSH Songs

All right, folks, here’s the deal: Barring earth-shattering news (or a cool MV release or something), the holiday break begins now. Regular programming will return on Monday(?) or so. But before I disappear completely into a repose of sweets, booze and familial backbiting (love you!), I provide a gift for the world.

Courtesy of digital video maven poleosis, here’s a whole ridiculous mess of BiSH material, subtitled in English with helpful romaji to follow along, all for your enjoyment.

Shut up, Linkin Park: ‘iN THE END,’ It Matters a Little

Wanna hear a really annoying story? I had planned out and prepared to record the not-really-her-last-concert-please-all-the-gods iN THE END free live being held by BiSH while they go into temporary stasis (I dare not call it a hiatus) with Aina, owner of the most liquid nitro voice in idol, taking a break to recover from surgery to remove vocal chord nodules.

I was prepped, had everything open, had Niconico ready to go, got the video launched, started to record just as the lights came up in whatever venue they’re in and … I was out of free trial on the recording software and would only be able to record in two-minute chunks, and there was no way I was doing that at 5:30 a.m., not even for you guys.

Edit: Someone uploaded the whole thing!

I Don’t Always Use Dailymotion, But When I Do, It’s for Idol Subs

If you’re a regular in the Idolmetal group on Facebook, you’ve probably seen subtitled videos popping up recently. What a gift! Not only do the subs include romaji, but translated English, and for songs that you may have always wanted to know what the hell they’re about.

For instance, here’s a list of BiSH videos (live and not) with said public service, by poleosis, right at your fingertips:
