Man, it’s been a while since the last time we got to check in on PIIIIIIIN, and it was literally just dumb luck that I saw this video hit Twitter this morning:
That’s “容赦なく逃げてった未来” (“Future Fled Mercilessly” or something?), and I’m happy to have it. It sounds a lot like a PIIIIIIIN song! Or, more accurately, like a PIIIIIIIN song from SCRAMBLES — just compare to this and tell me I’m crazy. Continue reading →
Way back when this site was just a twinkle in my eye, I had this joke to myself — the idol scene was getting so weird and heavy-dependent that a deliberately uber-kawaii unit was basically an inevitability … and then into being sprang Cutie Corpse.
And then there wasn’t Cutie Corpse anymore. The project ultimately fell apart before it really got anywhere. And, honestly, it’s not like that anywhere was even anywhere at the time. Cutie Corpse became just a funny little footnote, and we all moved on with our lives.

Why, it’s high school idols in corpse paint playing with the tools of suicide! How uplifting!
Say hello to Naniwa Six Immortals of Poetry, or Naniwa Rokkasen, as they like to be called. This song is from their first single, “Don’t Die!,” which is coming up at the end of the month.

It’s the teaser they released late last week that should really get your attention.
No matter what you think it’s about, there’s always one thing that kind of ruins that outlook
Typo notwithstanding, I’ll stand by that; every time I see a new tweet from @goodbyeidol, my butt clenches up a little bit. WHO’S IT GONNA BE THIS TIME?! Mostly, it’s idols nobody seeing this post has ever heard of; every now and again, though, it’s a group you know that’s going to disband, or even just a particular member on her way out.
Such was the case here. One half of the cool idol groups from Yamaguchi, 30POSSE, is saying goodbye to their leader: Continue reading →
