This Is the Trailer for Yajima Mai’s New EP

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.

Are You Ready for the New mistress Album?

I had to pull this dang thing out of the Weekender, but:

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

Just a Little Taste of PiGU’s Future

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!


Surprising darkness

You May Now Get Excited for SPARK SPEAKER’s First Album

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!


Thanks, Lee

KYO-MEI will drop on the 22nd. It’s clearly going to be worth getting via entirely legal means!

This Is the Trailer for Yanakoto Sotto Mute’s One-man

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.

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!

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
