Man, I think DEMON TAPES must have heard me saying nice things about the ex PSYBOU KANOJO, because I felt like I’d been waiting almost forever for the best-named idols in the business to give us something fresh.
I think this lyric video for “SOTTO MO ZUTTO JI” qualifies.
Good morning! Things are returning to normalish: I’m getting some more time back finally, I think that I may have found a solution to that weird commenting thing (and please tell me yea or nay if it seems to be right for you), there’s idol things happening … yup, good times are upon us.
And to respond: Yesterday, Yannderu Ame chucked onto the world a lyric video for “Idol Love Memorandum”:
Friends, you know how I like to get a little weird around here; the WTF Tuesday is mostly just an excuse to home in on something particularly strange.
I have a few candidates, but if you recall this past Weekender, I called out the newest A-minor debutantes, HIMEGOTO ZETTAICHI, for having put a new track on Soundcloud that was … well, it sounds nice.

Say, friends, have you ever listed to “I kill” and really wanted to be able to sing along? And not just the hook in the chorus, but the Non-screaming-a-hole-in-bullying’s-stupid-face-forever breakdown parts at the end, too? Well, you’ve come to the right place.
There’s some sad face for Guso Drop on the horizon, as Saki’s graduation looms (but we do get the three new members!). The show, however, never stops going on, as this lyric sheet they shared on Twitter would indicate:
You know how you always wish you could find translated lyrics for your favorite BiSH or You’ll Melt More! or Babymetal or Bellring Girls Heart songs, but searches tend to come up empty or go no further than turning Japanese kana into romaji? Fret no more!
At least somewhat! I subscribed a while back to Misa-chan’s J-pop Blog, and, while Misa-chan is really only one person and there’s a lot of music to get through when your theme is J-pop, she genuinely cranks out content and sometimes aligns with our interests.
