But will you like them?
I was just going to update the “WORLD END CRISIS” post from earlier, but then I remembered that I like to game my SEO and decided to create a separate home for this stuff.

Anima Animus PRDX is how Google translates the title, the Latin explaining the dual female/male aspects on the cover (and playing a little bit with “anime,” too, if I may be so bold). That’s Zenkimi, though; bright and shiny on the outside, simmering violence on the in. Their music sounds like id, you know, just unconstrained desire, emotions pouring out from the ancient, reptilian part of your brain. Continue reading
This is what love looks like: I’m finishing this from the Jersey Turnpike
I AM SO SORRY that I missed this before. Zenbu Kimi no Sei Da put this out a little after 9:00 and I was, well, driving. Just checked back.
Okay, you can listen to this forever unless they delete the file.

I can’t remember a promised debut that generated more excitement among our little community than ICE CREAM SUICIDE’s. Hell, I was practically beside myself at the thought — between the name and the art and the sophisticated introductory campaign of three groups by a newcomer agency and the inclusion of former Bellheart member Anna-chan, it all seemed like the idol world had heard our pleas and put together a special little project just for us.
And then they had their live debut, and BOY were a lot of people confused. Instead of a -core-riddled harsh idol project speckled with yami-kawaii violence, we got what sounded like a safe, contemporary-standard denpa-style pop song. I remember the Twitter chatter that day: Had we been had? Like, of course denpa makes sense because it’s so hot right now, but where’s the rock? Sanity did ultimately prevail and people seemed to reach a consensus agreement to withhold actual judgment until the debut EP, I.S.C.R.E.A.M., was released.
So what does I.S.C.R.E.A.M. sound like? What does ICE CREAM SUICIDE bring to the world? On to the review! Continue reading
They just snap-released another new song on their website, good for two hours. Go now to listen to “やみかわぐんまーち” (Mikawagon March?).
That’s quite a departure from yesterday’s descent into oblivion, isn’t it? But I’ll remind you that, while they’ve done videos including everything from suicide to cannibalism, Kiminosei’s darkest-ever moment is probably this nihilistic look at love.
Go listen. It’s a lot more denpa than denpacore, but I do love this kind of shot in the arm. And you know that it’s probably about obsession or fraught emotions or something.
Backed up for forever or until they take it down.
Damn, this cover:
Do you guys remember how fantastic Bokura no Oyugi felt the first time? That’s madness put in a blender and then made up to look like it actually belongs in polite society. So exciting.
And as a lunchtime gift to you all, here’s a little teaser that’s sitting on their official YouTube channel:
I’d give you a trigger warning, but that would take all the fun out of it.
POP, aka Period of Plastic 2 Mercy, aka the continuation/successor of Pla2me, aka once upon a time the most promising alt-idol duo in the game, just put another notch in their belt:
