Another Day, Another Zenbu Kimi no Sei Da Song Preview

The other day, Zenkimi graced us with Yotsu’s elegant, somewhat menacing solo contribution to the group’s upcoming EP; today, they dispense with the whole member-per-song thing and instead give us a whole-unit (plus band, from the looks of things) teaser:

Go listen and tell ’em you like it by using #みすふぃっとらゔぁーず. Also come here for its this-is-how-it-works save job for posterity. Continue reading

It’s Time to Listen to Zenkimi Yotsu’s Solo Song

If you recall when Mashiro’s solo song was released a little while back, word went out that every member of Zenbu Kimi no Sei Da would have her own solo track. And then there weren’t any other solos, but Komachi from NSLE was included.

Well, it’s Yotsu’s turn. Be afraid.

Permatrack and lyrics after the jump. Continue reading

Thursday Hurtsday Is a Teaser

Good morning, friends! It’s Thursday Hurtsday, and I’ve been a little bit remiss because reasons, but I’m back in the saddle and ready to share..

I figured that we could start with solo idol Ishido Natsumi, who’d been so under the radar for so long that she didn’t even make the cut for entry into the Corenament. To be left out of a completely bogus and made-up competition of idols who are primarily known to Westerners … Sad!

And while Natsumi is pretty good in her own right, this piece doesn’t even feature her. Continue reading

It’s a Lazy Weekend, So Here Are Some Video Teasers

It says “lazy weekend,” but my goodness was it a dull week, too. I’ll put it this way: I judge the overall strength of everybody’s interest in what’s going on by the amount of traffic that comes through these parts, and I have FANCY MATHEMATICAL FORMULAE to account for crazy business like the Corenament, so as long as certain baselines are being hit or surpassed, or the baselines are being consistently beaten (and therefore should be adjusted), I feel like I’m doing my job and idol is good and interesting and great.

This past week, though … I mean, at this point, I shouldn’t be struggling to find content to share, you know? I follow what feels like half of idol, friends are always sending over referrals, the Facebook groups and whatnot are going strong. There’s always something. Except when there isn’t! Like what happened this week! Or, at least, less than we’d like to be able to see.

Ergo, while I completely quietly made an editorial decision a little while back to not push out video teasers as main posts a little while ago (BECAUSE THERE’S SO MUCH STUFF JUST WAIT FOR THE REAL THING, MANIAC!), instead preferring them for the Weekender, I am immediately going back on that because dammit, we all need things to enjoy, even a little bit. It’s Saturday. It’s spring (except for you goofs in the Southern Hemisphere). We want loud idol stuff! Continue reading

A Kimi to Boku Teaser, and a Surprising Familiar Face

I’m feeling pretty good about Kimi to Boku, Sometimes Melancholic and their slow burn back to being noticeable and worth more attention. For instance, give this teaser a listen, and tell me that you don’t want to hear the whole thing:

Heavy! And also, holy smokes, how many members do they have now, and —

What the hell? Is that — ? Continue reading

I don’t want to say too much about it because I’m sure that the video’s impending (and possibly even available in all countries right away this time!), but definitely check this out:

You never fail me, PassCode. Continue reading

SHiX Wants You to Hear This Song So Badly, They Didn’t Even Finish Mixing It

So SHiX, who literally just came up the other day kind of randomly even though I was glad to do it, are putting all of those new members to work already. No, not just stage-idol-buppan stuff, but recording music! And then, possibly because whoever’s running SHiX has a good sense of humor, putting that music online while still in the midst of the production process:

“RoughMIX” is right!

Preview Zenbu Kimi no Sei Da’s Entire ‘Selfish Newborn Hominina”

Zenkimi has given us previews from their upcoming single before, but never all at once, and never with this … I actually don’t know how to describe this artwork:

I mean, it’s amazing, but for which set of reasons?

The link out for the music itself is after the jump, but first you have to promise to tweet about it using #わがまま新生Hominina because they really want to see it trend, you guys. Continue reading

Yannderu Ame and Their First Musical Teaser

Hi friends! You may have seen from John that Yannderu Watashi to Yamanai Ame (Twitter) exists. You may have also seen the information that I’ve lost track of, stuff on Facebook etc. that talked about their name and concept and stuff — the name’s like “I’m sickly watching the rain fall” but probably not as poetic as the “Tears in Rain” monologue but still pretty good — and the fact that they got Arisa from the ashes of the old Mugen Regina.

Anyway! The point here is not to tread back over stuff — it’s been covered, and with more genuine interest — but to hold up the shiny thing and get all excited about it. You know me. Continue reading

Welcome to the party, Komachi!

“Come here”. All right! Continue reading
