Yeah, It’s Aina’s Best Collaboration

In case you missed it:

BiSH’s barbecue-voiced center, Aina the End, contributed vocals to this wild promo for a run of upcoming PS4 games:

Or, to put it more succinctly: Continue reading

Would You Like to Help Fullfull Pocket Plan Their Set?

Kinda needed this one after that other business

This is such a cool promotion! Fullfull Pocket, who are plenty of fun if you’re willing to give some rather tradols a try,

Basically, for their regular lives beginning Oct. 9, fans are invited to submit their personal Fullfull Pocket top 10; management will turn the aggregate into a list of what the fans writ large want to hear, and then the members decide the set list. Neat! Continue reading

Going Solo Works Too! Kazuki from Gekijo-ban’s New Project

The original of this post is literally months old; it’s slow going out there, so I thought I’d dig it up

It’s safe to say that Gokigen Teikoku is doing pretty well right now, well enough to be able to get their fans to do their dirty work for them. But in the context of that work, the “Important Announcement,” we should all stop to remember Kazuki*, who left the group a good while back and … hey, went solo!


That’s a nice trailer!

This sounds like a challenge. Continue reading

If You Haven’t Heard the Digest for PassCode’s “ZENITH”, Now Is a Good Time

So amid all of the hubbub yesterday, I just plain up and missed the fact that PassCode, with the release of their ZENITH album just right around the corner, have officially put out the full album trailer:

For what it’s worth, they also added preview tracks to Soundcloud, but they weren’t available on U.S. or EU servers when I tried just now, so maybe it’s just a Japan thing, or maybe they’ll change the settings later, I dunno. Actually now available! Continue reading

I Think I Want Yamaguchi Kassei Gakuen’s New Album

I feel like I didn’t even know that YKG was coming out with an album soon, but it had been a good long while since their last album (though not that long since we last looked in on them) — maybe if Phillter, the world’s greatest Yamaguchi Kassei Gakuen fan, weren’t so busy being all living and working in Japan and stuff, I’d have known about this earlier!

Anyway, NOTE4 dropped the other day (fittingly, their fourth album, following NOTE3, their, uh, third), and here’s the trailer:

Gird Your Loins for ‘GiANT KiLLERS’ and Also Get It If You Can

That previous teaser was never going to be enough; BiSH dropped the trailer for GiANT KiLLERS a little while ago, and it (the new tracks, at least) is a scorcher:

Lovely. Continue reading

A Familiar Face in a Really New Place with AIBECK

There we were, friends, just minding out own business when this guy, this pusher comes out of the shadows and says, “Hey, you guys wanna see some new idols?”

If you know Pure Idol Heart, you know that this is commonplace! It’s why it’s important to make friends, because friends who know more than you or have a 13-hour head start on every day can and will give you referrals that you might never have found on your own because OH LOOK A BUTTERFLY. But that was last week(ish) when PIH first brought up AIBECK (Twitter); John wrote about them before, but I figured that I’d wait until this mythical teaser/trailer thingy came out so as to avoid clogging the lanes.

Oh look, it’s that thing! Continue reading

I’m More Than Ready for Zekkyou’s Album with I love you Orchestra

When we last checked in on Screaming Sixties, Zekkyou had just won a big ol’ idoling contest by being that much cooler than the competition. But when we last checked in on them before that, they were gearing up for a joint album and tour doodad with I love you Orchestra (as opposed to their traditional support band, 6% Is Mine).

That was a while ago, but now, finally, we get this cruel tease:

Death Comes Even for Hauptharmonie, and I Hate Everything

Here, take a quick listen to the jazz & blues idol project’s album trailer, seeing as how it’s the last record that they’re going to do:


I can’t even make jokes about the Tokyo grim reaper, I’m so sad

Because idol is the worst goddamn thing in the world sometimes, Hauptharmonie is being disbanded. Continue reading
