I was so proud of myself yesterday for having caught this one on a random Twitter pass-through and not already seeing it added elsewhere. It’s details on The Idol Formerly Known as Ladybaby’s major label single!
Ever since Ladybeard rather unceremoniously left Ladybaby, thereby taking away what was for many the most interesting part of the group, there’s been ardent speculation from viewers pro and con about whether the big live planned for Sept. 17 (that’s yesterday, you jamokes) was going to be the beginning of the end or a new beginning, period (that whole “we’re releasing a best-of” thing complicated it somewhat).
Death of Death Pop Sunday continues with this little promo spot from the continuing members of Ladybaby, aka the Idol Formerly Known as Ladybaby, who are speculated to no longer be called anything related to Ladybaby after their re-debut show, Let’s Go Crazy, coming up on the 17th.
Ladybaby is officially on hiatus, but Rie and Rei are still doing work together, in this case as hosts of this, uh, show with another weird adult man. Like, a lot of the stuff I watch is kind of weird because I can’t understand what’s being said and the context is missing, etc., but this is weird, period.
Sorry, I still kind of smirk to myself because a couple of good songs aside, I still have issues with Ladybaby. Nonetheless, they’re still chugging after what could have easily been a one-and-done scenario, and at the very least building toward something. So.

In what appears to be a reaction to BiSH management banning lifting and some other wota activity at their shows, Guso Drop has flat-out declared that not only will they do no such thing, but they are “most heavy idol in the world.”
Yurapiko’s smile does kind of take the edge off the attitude in that photo, however.
That’s a bold claim! Hardcore-as-hell or not, Guso Drop, you can’t just say something like that without objection. This must be settled by blood, or an Internet poll at the very least. Continue reading →
Because I’ve promised to at least pretend to have some objectivity on this site, I was actually looking for a snip of video that I spied earlier on Twitter when … hey! Ladybaby has a third single coming out (April 13) before their first Japanese “one-man live” (April 15). (I think it’s their first; correct me if I’m wrong.)
this is ordinarily where I’d post a photo or video or something, but look at the header image, which I stole from TwitterContinue reading →
