Oh hey neat! I expected that Zenbu Kimi no Sei Da’s pre-warned announcement would be some kind of music something, what with the upcoming release of their let’s-re-release-a-ton-of-stuff-with-the-new-lineup album on the way, but did I expect that they’d come shooting out of the gates with one of the greatest, loudest, violentest, Codomomentalest idolcore songs ever put to tape?

What a song.
The remix album is out at the end of July. I hope they give us more on the long road to that point!
Anyway, Zenkimi dropped their two-hour restricted window onto an updated version of “World End Crisis,” and you might dig that and so might the poor souls who find their way to idols through Google. I was very literally asleep when that happened, so John:
Well, here we are once again, ぜんぶ君のせいだ。 (Zenbu Kimi no Sei da.) is tossing us another bone. Here is the track World End Crisis re-recorded with the current lineup. I believe this is just a demo track due to the rawness of the mix. Anyway, it is a two hour window. Enjoy. Also, it seems that […]
It was bound to happen at some point: Zenbu Kimi no Sei Da, to close their one-man tour, are going to perform a new song (yay!) called “WORLD END CRISIS” (of course!), and they’re going to do it with sister group Yukueshirezutsurezure leader-type Shidare (/winces):
