Is This SPARK SPEAKER’s Moment?

Do you want to know why the Weekender was late, other than because somebody needed to have breakfast made on account of a little too much carousing last night? It’s because I wanted to add a SPARK SPEAKER note but this was right there in the feed and I needed to get my stuff together enough to watch it multiple times and think of a post to blog!

Anyway, listen, this is very cool and good for the former DINOSAUR BRAIN: Following on the release of THE WORLD IS MINE, the song from it called “REALTA” got picked up as the end theme of a TV show for January, and while this is a really awkwardly grammared sentence it must yet be added that “REALTA” was also given the MV treatment because that makes a ton of sense to do in that situation.

What matters: Ayukuma is doing the theme music for another anime, and will be releasing that song as a single in December:

That’s a long time away! Continue reading

Kamen Joshi’s Latest Song Is a Theme Song for Food

The Alice Project’s Kamen Joshi, aka the Mask Girls, aka the Kamen Joshi in the same way that it’s not Ohio State but the Ohio State, don’t do the whole album thing so much, or even the whole single thing at a rate that would fit into more typical idol norms; no, Kamen Joshi, now that they’ve taken over all of the release responsibilities for the constituent elements of the group, are quite a bit too busy with daily stage shows and various endorsements to be doing such trite stuff as singles and albums and MVs (and when they go so far, they only release short versions!).

Now, it’s pretty normal for idols to do theme songs. What’s a little less normal is for idols to do theme songs for food:

Pretty: BiSH’s St. Chitti Singing So Sweetly

A quick little thing found via the BiSH Facebook fan group:

This normally wouldn’t be an anime kind of site, but folks love anime, and idols and anime are like peanut butter and jelly. This is a little like having Joan Jett singing your show’s closing theme, but that’s fine. Good for Chitti.
