After that other bit of news, this is a nice thing to have on Monday:

(The link is for the track list and details; the @ in there is for the cover artist.)

That’s the CD mentioned as being released in conjunction with this really awesome looking live on Feb. 5. Here’s the little trailer doodad: Continue reading

I Guess We’ll Just Have to Settle for Another New Zenkimi Member

Last night, during A-to-J’s podcast (that Terry was on on!), I tried to blurt into the chat the question of what the big announcement that Zenbu Kimi no Sei Da had been teasing would turn out to be; it was Megumi’s birthday show, and I’ve been riding the Megumi’s-going-to-graduate-to-focus-on-business rail for months, so I stuck to my not-prediction while others suggested that maybe, given their other recent updates, the best bet would be a new member.

This is why you shouldn’t listen to me. Continue reading

Thursday Hurtsday: Let’s Celebrate Pain with C-Style

As an idol-oriented website, it makes total sense that we’d go in on gimmicks themes to keep things fun and interesting and give folks a chance to contribute their discoveries and stuff. Following the implementation of probably-gonna-change-it Tuesday WTF and Indie Idol Wednesday, it’s Thursday’s turn. Welcome to: Thursday Hurtsday!

For our very first Thursday Hurtsday, I thought it’d be appropriate to share a live set by idols who will literally smack you in the face if you give them money (or possibly even just ask nicely): C-Style.

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

And How Did You React to PassCode the First Time You Heard Them?

Good job, John. Our pal John “Straight from Japan” Winner very honorably and not at all pushily convinced YouTube Reaction Industry participant Mac Ryan Mac to take in and, you know, react to PassCode:


“This is such a great combination of idol music and rock.” Yes it is.

Guso Drop (and Fans) Can’t Stop Won’t Stop

You may have seen a funny story unfolding on Twitter last night:

Guso Drop (and 2&) was scheduled to perform at 11:00 a.m. as the opener-opener of this big ol’ idols-and-stuff event, but somebody involved in that process screwed up, and the fans weren’t being let into the performance area until the very last minute, and the stage wasn’t ready, and …

Fortunately, this is Guso Drop we’re talking about; they just improvised: Continue reading

The Awesome PassCode Documentary Series Continues

Man, remember the last thing we had from PassCode on Future Standard? Phillter isn’t going to be translating a transcription of this one, I don’t think (but anybody who wants to should feel free!), thought I think the story kind of tells itself, as good documentary will:

969 Is Back, and a Big Bright Rainbow Is Shining on 2017 Already

Oh man, you guys who weren’t around during the spring and summer, also known as Maniac’s Period of Being Obsessed with 969, are in for a treat. Cuz 969 is back:

Thanks, Lee!

OH HELL YES. They’re so new! Only that last one even has other idols I know following her. Does anybody recognize any of these members from other projects? I CAN’T WAIT TO MEET THEM!

“But Maniac,” you ask, a little confused and possibly exasperated because why am I yelling anyway, “I don’t understand what’s the big deal. It’s not like they’re–”

Lemme stop you right there, Convenient Strawman. Do you want to know why 969 coming back to life excites me? Continue reading

It’s Time to See the New Guso Drop in Action

Poor Saki’s Guso corpse is still warm, and Guso Drop’s out here with their new six-member configuration, blasting holes through the backs of people’s heads like it ain’t no thing at all.

Poor Terry got himself so excited about this one that he just plain forgot how to English
