Inside the Homicidol Mind: This Pikarin Interview Has the Best Title Ever

It’s slow out there, gang; there isn’t even all that much live stuff happening. It’ll pick up again soon! In the meantime, I happen to share the belief that downtime is the best time, because it’s when you can dive deeper into subject matter than you’d usually have time to, and so I’ve been looking around for older videos, interviews, etc., and this new bit of work by Plain Sugar Subs is worth a few minutes.

Pikarin! It’s an older interview, from IDOL AND READ 007, called “WAR DECLARATION FROM THE DEMON WORLD,” but it does get into the head of a young woman whose career has certainly seen some interesting developments over the years. Continue reading

Pikarin Knows How to Celebrate a Birthday

Hikari Shiina, the belovedly infamous Pikarin, celebrated either her 22nd or 22,000th birthday this past week, depending on which account of her life you believe, and of course had to do it all Pikarin-y. All stuff originally derived via Patrick on the Facebook group.

It’s a Very Quiet Day in Idol, So Here’s Something Wild

Well, kind of wild. In a long-distance, lo-fi kind of way.

But loogit! Pikarin was recently joined on stage by Shinozaki Kokoro, ex of petit pas!, and the two of them did one of the loudest, screamiest duet versions of “Re:START” you ever will hear:

Pikarin Providing a Voice for a Perfectly Themed TV Movie

Seeing as how Halloween is right around the corner, I thought I’d look in on Pikarin, who’s essentially a living, breathing Halloween party. And of course the “what she’s up to” is just too damn weird.

Good lord. So Shiina’s the narrative voice for that. Idols! What else is she up to? Continue reading

While You’re Waiting for @JAMxNatalie EXPO Video, Here’s a Treat

A small team of dedicated downloaders was hard at work throughout the night to record as much of the streams from LINE and Abema.tv as possible, and I’m sure the clips will start to appear soon. In the meantime, here’s 30 whole seconds of Pikarin being Pikarin.

Nice job, Shiina.

It’s Hump Day, So How about an Entire Hour of Pikarin Live?

Shiina had herself one of those fancy Line lives on Monday, and our good pal @ramenshuriken wanted to share:

Every single person in attendance was physically violated in one way or another. (Probably.)

Never have twin tails carried so much menace.

Pikarin: Bow Down

I can think of no better way to kick off a work week than a full minute of Pikarin at her finest.

What a show. Even if she’s lip-syncing, that’s a hell of a harsh-sweetness combination, and the energy on that stage is second to none. You can see in the crowd that these are people in love with their idol. Continue reading

Pikarin Sounds So Sweetly Brutal in Her New Video

Q’ulle’s latest was just what the doctor ordered; Pikarin‘s is like going out for ice cream after the appointment:

“Another quirky pop song, oh lord, you need to dress more– OH DAMN HELL YES.”

There are lyrics for “Mitsu to Batsu” in the video description, too. You know, for you lucky people who can actually read Japanese. Edit: Or it’s “Makai Shinjuu,” I don’t know, it doesn’t matter if you enjoy it.
