Please Share My Delight at This Vivid Chicken MV

You talk about idols that ol’ Maniac just flat-out forgot about, you talk about Vivid Chicken. This is not a positive, friends, as I find myself forgetting about more and more idols as all the ones I love announce their departure from this mortal coil and all the ones that I mentally associated with them (stylistically usually, sometimes for only the dumbest of reasons) may as well die right along with them. Or, check it, sometimes the mental association is not a kind one, and one thing called Chicken and another thing called Chicken kind of get rolled together, and you wind up with not the best mental association.

I say this to reiterate: I had completely forgotten the existence of the idols known as Vivid Chicken, and was fine with that. As far as I knew, I hadn’t had a reason to post about them in well over a year, and they’d really only been notable for a few months at the opening of 2018’s all-you-can-eat buffet of idol debuts. That is, until a chance YouTube rec yielded … Vivid Chicken’s latest MV!

That’s a ton of fun! And, frankly, at an all-around much higher quality than I, uh, expected. WHICH TO BE FAIR is really a branding thing, don’t you think? You call yourself Vivid Chicken, you open yourself up to certain doubts as to your commitment to being, you know, good. But this is good though!

Near as I can tell, this is a “just because” video release, though I’m sure there’s a one-man or something coming up. At any rate, I’m excited that ViviChiki is still alive and kicking and will hopefully have something else for me to get excited about soon. And while you all enjoy this bonus live, I’m going to scroll through their Twitter looking for other groups I may have forgotten about!


This Vivid Chicken MV Really Takes Me Back

I’m going to go ahead and say that one of my favorite newer idol projects is definitely Vivid Chicken, in case you couldn’t tell. And, friends, I’m going to go ahead and also say that my mind was far from idol yesterday until auhby (bless you) tweeted to make sure that I’d seen this one:

It ain’t new, but it’s new to me, and thank heavens for it. Continue reading


Enjoy Some Deliciously Dyed Vivid Chicken

All right, I got some great schooling on the whole this-is-why-people-dye-chicks thing back when we first got a look at newbie rock unit Vivid Chicken. Thanks, by the way! I still don’t really understand the point, which, hey, you can say that about a lot of things.

They put out a new song today, is the point here, though:

I like it! It is loud and rocky! I don’t have a whole lot else to say so I’m just going to abruptly end the post!
