Life is full of surprises. Some make you poop your pants in terror; others make you pee your pants in glee. This falls somewhere in between because I’m not soiling myself, okay? I’m just excited.
Yes after well over a year of never, ever having live video of their performances available online, Bokura no Oyugi followed up those earlier entries with:
Terror quotient: Falling
That’s a little bit different than the last couple! This is more like if the Vandals were writing idol music. Or Modern Baseball, if you’d prefer a band that’s actually contemporary. Continue reading →
I’m going to let you guys in on a little secret: When you wake up in the morning and see that you have a DM on Twitter and it’s from Phillter and the preview is just the “Sent a link“, you’re probably about to get something really cool.
I mean that title to be nuanced, by the way.* One, I feel like I’m not good enough for these gifts from Bokura no Oyugi; on the other hand, what crimes did I commit that would justify having this mass-media blasted into my consciousness? Maybe call it delightful pain, I don’t know.
The terror clown idols who have now spent several days as my absolute personal obsession on three different occasions, the literal stuff of nightmarish carnival hellscapes getting caught making out with some easily impressionable doe-eyed idol candidate behind the calliope. They really only ever release stuff in the same month as a blue moon or something, so these are an absolute treat to get.
It finally happened. We got a teaser before, but now literal months of waiting for this godforsaken hellscape of a song (circuscore!) to be released into any digital media in full have paid off, and it’s a music video that probably shows Bokura no Oyugi in their natural habitat before their handler seals them back up inside for the daylight hours and drops in a canteen filled with children’s tears:
OH MAN you guys, what feels like months of patience and endless hectoring and no shortage of questioning the very meaning of existence, the satanic circus that is Bokura no Oyugi is finally making an official release.
I’ve always had really high hopes for the 666-worshipping clowns in Bokura no Oyugi, given that the only track they’ve ever made public is exactly what you’d expect from a group that’s been all about being the idol version of Twisted Metal. But, sadness now, as the two people I’ve always taken to be the driving force behind the group, Ruru Summertree and Mickey Eight Doors (yes), are both graduating:
The terror clowns, Bokura no Oyugi, despite persistently refusing to release more music than this trip into absolute insanity, perform very regularly (plus Ruru’s work as DJ Candy-chan), and held what the translator calls “the Sacred Heart of Jesus Festival” (I know!) to celebrate their three recent new members.
The three of them seemed quite pleased in joining what can only be assumed to be some kind of Satanic circus cult:
May this message reach a person who’s going to be at that live next week, and may that person have all the recording equipment in the world, and may they record the show and share it with us. I am fascinated by Bokurano.
Those mysterious masked women who are joining the actual Twitcast subjects? They aren’t acolytes or future human sacrifices, allegedly, but yet-to-be-introduced future members of the group. Oh yeah, Mikumo graduated. For her sake, it was probably a good idea.
This whole “666 followers” thing of Bokura no Oyugi’s has borne fruit; after some dark spirit, probably the one that screams in your nightmares, willed them to their followers goal, it became time to make good on their diabolical promise.
In trying to follow up from the earlier post about the slapstickin’est denizens of our nightmares, Bokura no Oyugi, I was doing some YouTubing and … oh, how interesting, that AMiE song is right on this list … and the clowns are in the description, how interesting …
