I like to tease PassCode, mostly because I really like them, and good-natured ribbing of one’s nearest-or-at-least-dearest is a time-honored tradition. How many hours of raw enjoyment did I wring out of their first two albums and accompanying singles, and how formative were they in my more natal Maniac period? Much, is the answer. So yes, I made fun of Locus a little bit, only to reverse course and decide that yeah, it’s probably going to be hot, and … well, the fuller trailer’s here, showing off those re-recordings with far more gusto, and if you skip toward the last 30 or so seconds … Continue reading
I just keep giggling about this. I really don’t know.
You tell me. Honestly. What the hell all is going on here? Idol Cannonball Run: The Motion Picture would create the single hottest holiday toy craze in history — vomit-inducing hot sauce! ill-fitting fitness wear! gratuitous bikini tops! — if it lived up to half of its potential. Like, AV vs. MV? More like Pour Lewd amirite? Continue reading
I had wanted to wait until the MV was out for this one, team, but I’m not entirely sure that it’s going to get an individual release at this point (Team Maimi may want it as a reward, not just a carrot), so let’s just enjoy this short trailer for Innocent Emotion:
This sucker is out tomorrow. It’s obviously loud and melodic and epic and metal — like classically so, minus the “extreme” that’s so obligatory anymore — and I can’t wait.
I had to pull this dang thing out of the Weekender, but:
mistress 1st FULL Album『ARTIFACT』
2017.12.12 発売 (¥1,852+tax)
(THREE LIGHTS DOWN KINGS)
作詞 原田まりるさん 篠崎こころさん やよいさん(uijin)
— スーパー殺 12.12アルバム発売 (@ameru_mist) November 24, 2017
I love these announcements that come no more than two weeks before the official release date. And, if we’re lucky, we’ll get another MV like the last one, which seriously should be getting Of the Year consideration, you guys. It’s ridic.
For now, though, all we get is this trailer: Continue reading
Man, this one’s a few days old, but I wanted to do something with the video that’s actually below the jump, and that just invited the use of the draft that I started all the way back on Friday, so here you go.
Hey, look, it’s a PiGU preview!
And in News Items That Are Almost a Week Old, hey, SPARK SPEAKER’s first album is coming! And there’s a trailer for it!
KYO-MEI will drop on the 22nd. It’s clearly going to be worth getting via entirely legal means!
I made (embittered) fun of them for acting as if the next announcement were earth-shattering, and it was just for a one-man, but nothing changes the fact that Yanamyu is one of the best and most important acts in the biz right now, one of the real chances to bridge the chika and mainstream worlds. It’ll be a great show, is the point!
Also, I want an excuse to post about YSM!
I’m jealous of everybody who’s going to be at that show.
In case you missed it:

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
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!
