Bellring Girls Heart is going away. Well, kind of. Mostly. For a little while. And that sucks and is sad, especially after the year they’ve had. But now you can relive the whole thing with this series of live DVDs that are coming out in a pair of Thursdays.
Start your Sunday with a trip through the most meta thing you’ll see today.
The Indies So Indie They Bailed on Their Indie Management to Go Super-Indie, aka Gokigen Teikoku, filmed a video (their first!) the other day, with some of their biggest fans in attendance as de facto extras. And, uh, they also filmed themselves being filmed.
I had the stupidest damn day yesterday (well, after the BiS thing), and I’d really like to have a nice Friday. Being the generous sort, I’d like for you to have a nice Friday, too! Fortunately, the coolest twee girls in idol (aka, Avandoned) posted a full show while I was busy doing a bunch of dumb stuff that I didn’t want to do (yesterday), and now let’s all just enjoy it together.
You may have heard about Bellring Girls Heart being gutted in the very near future when Ayano and Mizuho graduate, and the group going on a I-believe-it-this-time temporary hiatus before a very soft reboot next year.
What you may not have heard about is how they’re going to go out as vividly as possible.
Seeing as how Halloween is right around the corner, I thought I’d look in on Pikarin, who’s essentially a living, breathing Halloween party. And of course the “what she’s up to” is just too damn weird.
Set your calendar for Nov. 26, because. It’ll be good for you.
And if I hear that Yanakoto Sotto Mute has rolled out a new song, you’d better bet your sweet bippy that I’m going to very quietly lose my mind over the fact. Via Viz Major on the Idolmetal group:
With a title like that, one could be led to believe that the post-grungy alt-rock Yanamyu might be covering Pearl Jam (or Willie Nelson covering Pearl Jam), but that’s not the case. Instead, it’s a song that I’d probably have demanded be played at my prom and then sulked when it wasn’t because I was one of those jackass kids. Continue reading →
Probably! But the Least Stable Project in Idol of Any Kind (aka GANG PARADE) just released two of the tracks from Barely Last onto Soundcloud, and, if you’ve been following the bizarre drama of the last couple of months at all, you’re probably at least somewhat curious as to what they sound like. Curious no more!
Actually, that’s not true. I know about as much about them as anybody who isn’t them! Say hi to Kimi to Utatane, who are doing this whole dual-nature, which-will-you-get angle that at least carries the threat of violence and pain. Continue reading →
I’ve always had really high hopes for the 666-worshipping clowns in Bokura no Oyugi, given that the only track they’ve ever made public is exactly what you’d expect from a group that’s been all about being the idol version of Twisted Metal. But, sadness now, as the two people I’ve always taken to be the driving force behind the group, Ruru Summertree and Mickey Eight Doors (yes), are both graduating:
