I don’t get a ton of time to casually scroll through Twitter anymore, but when I do, I tend to stumble over some good stuff. It’s good luck, I guess. Usually, following half of all idols makes for a bloated, disjointed mess of a feed, but maybe my eyes got used to it or something. The point is, there I was, doop-dee-doop, minding my own business when … hello, what’s this?

LADYBABY’s sort of surprise-springing this digital single on us, but I doubt that too many people are going to complain. This is a group that’s pretty much always done what they wanted, and damn the man, like they exist within this idol milieu but also somewhat apart from it. Frankly, more groups should probably operate that way!
I don’t have enough cultural context to make this work in my head, and would therefore appreciate some tutorial about why I’m wrong, but let me preface this by noting just how high my eyebrow arched when I looked at the description stuff and saw “KAWAII-DEATH” and “something something Showa era songs.” Like I don’t get entirely where they’re going with that, but … well, I presume that this is what that means:
That’s a really weird-looking title, huh?
I had been meaning to catch up on the latest track from the just-re-debuted mistress, aka now the mistress because what are you gonna do, but let’s take care of that second and instead have a nice long look at the full version of their MV (and song, really) for “Would you kill yourself now?”:
Those, uh, Osaka vibes are indeed strong! Continue reading
Note: I do not dance well
Yes, friends, it’s time for the quarterly revisiting of things Q’ulle, which I am relieved to say has not yet been obviated by Yuzuki’s solo spelunk into extreme metal. When we last left our heroes, they were riding their own kind of Avex-era high, doing theme music for what looks like a very 90s kind of TV show. A few months later, their first digital (Avex) single is releasing …

So it figures that, right after declaring Utane Yuki’s Nemlesss EP BOSSSRUSH to be my favorite of that type of release of 2017, she’d go ahead and put out a follow-up, right? Well, it also figures that I completely missed that Chris very enthusiastically shared that news with me, but I was paying zero attention and had no idea until, well, just the other day.
But here’s the trailer!
It’s so weird and chaotic!
In case you couldn’t tell, gang, ol’ Maniac’s been taking it easy this week on account of it being not just a slow one, but the holidays and all of that. I didn’t feel like putting too much time and/or energy into anything other than household projects, travel and other people’s
horrified grimaces polite smiles upon seeing me for the first time in a while. It’s been fun!
One thing did drag me out of the woodwork for a minute, though, and it’s this little bit that you may have seen going around yesterday:

Well, today’s been a fairly heavy one (though I think I’m going to stay on the DEADLIFT LOLITA thing for a while yet), but some of the best and simultaneously most unsung work in idol is still happening, and now would be a great time to crank it up to 11 and rock out.
I speak, of course, of DAIDAIDAI:
