May the blessings of the gods of your choice be upon you people. I make a #hottake, and then we all get to chat about it like civilized human beings, and then gauntlets get thrown down not in the form of a duel to defend the object’s honor, but to one-up the very notion being discussed.
Considering what’s about to come out in a little while here, I didn’t necessarily want to drill down this particular shaft right now, but the timing is what it is, and, you’ve probably seen and heard the new Maison Book Girl, right?
Man, the reacts to this sucker sure were positive! For instance:
I’m not calling out our Papermaiden here — she’s just an example. The reality is that people in the altisphere were all like FUCK YEAH MAISON BOOK GIRL yesterday and are probably still giving each other high-fives across time and space. And I’m glad that you guys like it, and MBG is doing well. Continue reading →
This sucker has gotten posted around a little, but it didn’t seem to generate the normal level of buzz (because Saturday?), and I only saw that it existed because I stumbled over their Twitter while looking for something else.

It definitely sounds just like every other Maison Book Girl song; you big ol’ fans will no doubt embrace it anyway, and people like me who like MBG more as a theoretical thing will look at those lyrics and nod sagely, and people who make fun of them for releasing the same song over and over again … we can all be right, you know? Such is the power of Megumon.
In a year that’s seen just about everything, Maison Book Girl, who’d managed to avoid getting posted here from a combination of fit, priority and my own maniacal strategic vision, is now an official includee on Homicidols.com. I guess they became aware of their status on two of the ballot lines that we’ll start today and wanted to subliminally* boost their odds.
I am aggravated. First this show was definitely happening, and then “it didn’t,” and then the “IDLE IS DEAD” tour was announced and that’s cool, but: Look, that BiS reunion concert definitely happened (in December), and it looks like it was really great, and I’m going to try to hunt down some video to see just how great, but man alive, the perils of trying to follow things in another country through the fog of Google Translate and limited media in your own language.
I had heard months ago via TGU that all of the ex-BiS groups (and Tenten!) were getting together for a show in December, and TGU had speculated that Saki would return to POP on that date because, like, there wouldn’t be much of a point of including POP without her (well, the WACK connection, but still), and then the show never happened and Pure Idol Heart made it sound like it was sort of spur-of-the-moment.
